Sometimes a bitch has to live, you know?

So I felt like this year was MY TURN because recently I found out about something called SLUTTY BROWNIES.


You heard that right. They’re brownies, and man, they are SLUT-TAY.

Not just kind of slutty though, but like a full blown, bending over in front of your boyfriend with no underwear on, biggest slut ever brownies.

WHY? Well…….

This isn’t some basic bitch, boring one layer brownie recipe, this is THREE LAYERS, guys. Plus ice cream.

Obviously the majority of my recipes are on the healthier, cleaner side but since Halloween is around the corner I figured I couldn’t NOT introduce you guys to this recipe, #REBEL.

But backstory first: I met Gaby of the insane blog, What’s Gaby Cooking in New York City when we both met with the Skinnygirl team. We immediately clicked & while we were chatting away she mentioned that she had this recipe called Slutty Brownies. Obviously I was immediately intrigued because WELL DUH I NEED TO KNOW WHEN/WHERE/WHY/HOW these brownies were sluts?!

Once Gaby gave me the lowdown I knew we had to collaborate so she decided to share my dark chocolate dipped, candy pretzels ( recipe a la my stepmom, Julie ) on her blog, AND YOU GUYS get the slutty brownie recipe. Sounds like a plan, right?

Also, I should mention that Gaby used to be Jessica Simpson’s chef ( …I KNOW!! NBD. ) & Jessica Simpson went on Jay Leno & raved about these slutty brownies. So if you’re wondering whether you should make these or not, you should because Jessica eats them as a treat & she still looks banging in her Daisy Dukes.

Here’s her actual quote if you were wondering:

“Right now there’s this new thing that’s so heavenly. They’re called slutty brownies. They are a layer of cookie dough, a layer of Oreo cookies, and a layer of brownie dough, & then you bake it together. It’s amazing.”

– Jessica Simpson talking to Jay Leno about her pregnancy cravings.

When Jay asked why they’re called “slutty brownies,” Jessica replied, “I don’t know, I guess a lot goes into them?” 

Oh Jessica, never change.

( Side: you may have also seen these on Kim Zolciak’s show, Don’t Be Tardy For The Party— Thanksgiving ep, to be exact ).

Ok, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…presenting: SLUTTY BROWNIES:


Oh-So Easy, Dirty, Slutty Brownies

Pre-made cookie dough ( I love this one )
1 box of brownie mix
1 pack of Oreos ( double stuff ones are even better if you can find them )
However many cage free eggs you need ( see box )
Some oil ( see box )
…Your favorite ice-cream ( this is optional, LOL )

+ Directions: Preheat your oven to 350F, 180C. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper. Follow the instructions on the boxes & stir furiously. Add a little extra water and oil to what they suggest. Layer the cookie dough on the bottom of a 9×9 baking pan, pressing down to form the bottom of the slutty brownies. Layer as many Oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap. One single layer will do. Pour the brownie batter on top of the Oreo layer and make sure it’s evenly layered on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Test with a knife to see if the center is done. If the knife comes out clean, let the brownies rest before serving. If the knife comes out with batter still on it, allow the brownies to bake about 5 minutes more. The longer you let them sit, the prettier the layers inside will be, but honestly I just shoved them in my face warm & gooey. Serve with ice cream…because SHIT! IT’S HALLOWEEN.

+ adapted from What’s Gaby Cooking & The Londoner

My lovely friend Gaby also refers to these as ‘I just got dumped brownies.’

Secretly, I feel like I want Michael to break up with me so I could just sit on the couch in a onezie while shoveling these brownies in my mouth, crying to “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.”

Sounds weirdly fun, right.

So anyway, this Halloween I recommend keeping the costumes classy/cool & the brownies slutty. Although you may need Spanx after eating these sinful, little sluts…

By the way, kids would love these but I feel like it’s bad to recommend these to kids, err, so maybe moms: just eat them with a glass of champagne with your girlfriends. & leave the kids with the travel size Skittle packs.

If you bake them, tag your pictures on Instagram so we can check them out: #SLUTTYBROWNIES.

Get spooky…& enjoy, lauryn x

Wedding Wear Tips Coming At Cha

wedding wear | by the skinny confidential

wedding wear | by the skinny confidential

Ok, so I guess wedding season is technically over.

But since I’m the worst bride-to-be on the planet, it’s very much fitting I’m a little late on this post, right.

Also, it works because I learned this summer.

Since attending a bunch of weddings this year ( I’ve been to more weddings this year than I have in my entire life! ), I picked up a few tippity-tips, ya know?

NOW if something is a faux pas on my recommendation list, please ( PLEASE ) let me know. Again, I am most certainly not QUEEN OF WEDDINGS.

In fact, I’m kind of clueless. Literally though, if one of my friends came to my wedding wearing white, I wouldn’t care ( what is wrong with me?! ).


I get it.

I guess I’m just not that savvy to what’s ok & what isn’t. So feel free to add extra education below.

Favorite ways to prep for weddings:

wedding wear | by the skinny confidential

Ok, let’s get started, shall we? Going to discuss wedding wear to the max: hair, brows, lips, dress, shoes, makeup, tan, nails, you name it.

Hopefully I’m not committing any wedding crimes with my recommendations (!!!).



Ya, ya, ya, we all know I love a good tan. But not a sun tan. EW. I like a spray tan or at-home tan. I know there are a ton of chemicals in some spray tan products, but that’s the price I pay for staying out of the sun. Huge fan of balancing life like a checkbook. Especially when it comes to the sun. Personally, I’d rather spray than go in the sun. Do what works for you.

When it comes to wedding season I need a glow or I will look like Casper asking the usher for a brochure. No bueno.

I wrote a full-on blog post about a new vegan, organic, at-home sunless tanner that I like AND of course, it’s no surprise that I LOVE MY MYSTIC LEVEL 3’S.

Oh, & try leg makeup if you’re pinched for time. Trust me.

Nails!!! For weddings I like a light, pretty nail. Especially if I’m wearing a bright lip. Right now I’m loving Ballet Slippers or Marshmallow by Essie. Simple! These colors are described as sugary, soft, & sweet. Oh, & if you’re showing toes, do white or red ( because EVERYONE looks good with white or red toes ). If you’re not showing toes, who cares. LOL.

I love a pop of color on the lips. Maybe not right now…because I have full-on green rubber band braces, but when I’m brace-free? I love a hot lip. My favorite lipstick on the planet right now is ‘American Doll’ by Anastasia Beverly Hills— not sponsored, just obsessed. I talk about it every second but it’s just the best red ever. In this blog post, I’m wearing it with a red MAC lipliner ( I used the ‘overline’ trick, found here ).

To wrap up the makeup look, I always contour when I go to a wedding. You can find my whole tutorial here. When attending a wedding I like to do big lashes & mascara with no other eye makeup AND OF COURSE, I LOVEEEE a good, thick brow ( my friend, Kelsey did my make-up here— I just filmed a YouTube makeup video with her, so stay tuned for a fun Kelsey tutorial! ).

In these pictures I’m wearing this dark navy blue dress. I’m OBSESSED. It was an investment piece BUT I can wear it to tons of different black tie & wedding events. I absolutely love it. Navy blue is just the best color ever really. Plus it comes in ‘English rose’ pink too ( wedding appropriate, no? ).

If you’re looking for something less expensive & just as chic, check out this bad boy. It’s super pretty for weddings & looks so similar to mine, it’s kind of crazy!

AND if you’re looking for a pop of color, I’m very much about this deep red dress. I have it in purple-ish blue, but I think I like the maroon better for a wedding soirée.

For hair, I like it straight. Straight is always in. It’s not overwhelming & you want to let the bride shine so you don’t want to show up with full on bombshell curls. Sleep bun curls, maybe. But don’t go overboard ( I would never want to insult the bride! ).

wedding wear | by the skinny confidential


Personally, I’m a huge fan of keeping it simple. A nude pump or a black patent leather pump is perfect for a wedding, in my opinion. If you’re wearing a super plain dress you could add a pop of color with a red kitten heel though.

This nude pump has been on rotation for me all summer & I’m definitely not mad about it. Plus it’s under $100 bucks.

If you’re feeling FIESTY, try out a leopard heel ( but not like a Vegas, bandage dress leopard heel… ). Just make sure to keep it simple up top. Also, if you’re doing leopard YOU HAVE TO DO A RED LIP. It just goes, you know?

wedding wear | by the skinny confidential


I love a pretty clutch to complete an outfit. I fell head over heels in love with this gold-lamé clutch & I’ve used the hell out of it. It fits my phone ( YAY ), lipstick, mints, & a cell phone charger ( don’t kill me, Michael ).

You may notice the pieces I invest in are always staples that I can wear to black tie events. They’re forever pieces. Nothing trendy!

For jewelry, I keep it simple with my engagement ring, men’s watch, & maybe some little studs. Too many accessories is overkill, especially to a wedding. A thin anklet is always fun too.

SO YAY! Those are my wedding recommendations. I hope I got it somewhat right. At least I know not to wear white, right?

A little wedding update for us: we currently have a wedding Dropbox folder and we…wait for it…did the guest list. AND we may or may not have booked a venue, more to come.

Ok, anyway please, oh please leave any wedding prep recommendations below. I kind of need all the help I can get for next summer’s round of weddings!

From bed…trying to relax ( really though, trying ), lauryn x

A Pathetic Attempt At a Wedding Update

The Skinny Confidential talks weddings.


So I’ve decided if there was an award for worst bride to be ever, I would win.

It’s not intentional ( I tried to get excited over a Pinterest board, really I tried ). The whole wedding planning thing is just something I have yet to get excited about. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET LIKE THIS? PLEASE?

Realness alert: getting engaged was so special to me. It fit like a shoe. Also, it was done away from social media ( we kept it a secret for like a month & half ). And well, I like being engaged. You know, just being. I don’t see the rush in planning a wedding. I’m happy with where I’m at now. Also, I’m busy. Full-time blogging may seem like you write a couple paragraphs & post a picture, but it’s A LOT more in depth than that…at least that’s been my experience. It’s a ’round the clock’ job that’s taken a lot of energy & time. I’m not complaining; I just don’t have time to add ‘wedding plan’ to my list of 3895719013475 other things right now. Anyway, the past couple weeks have given me time to think a bit & I’m starting to come around to the idea of wedding planning. SLOWLYYYYY THOUGH.

I’m not one of those girls that’s overly excited about her wedding. I’ve tried to get giddy but I’m just not. I’ve never dreamed of my wedding when I was little. And now at my age, I dream about my chihuahuas running through fields (LOL) & building my own business. And I’ve come to except THAT’S OK. I’m ok with not being the girl that knows exactly what/where/when/how/why wedding details.

NOW, should I tell you the semi-progress I’ve made since being knocked down on my ass?

Ok, let’s begin, shall we?

♡ Location, location, location:

I want a destination wedding. Small, intimate, not too many people. Kind of a no pressure thing, like if we invite someone & they can’t come, no big deal. Reason being: when I had TSC Book launch party there were a lot of people. Which was AWESOME, but I feel like I didn’t get to enjoy the whole experience fully because I was busy saying hello to everyone. I missed out on eating, mingling, & soaking in the whole night.

When I get married I want it to be about the man I’m marrying. Not saying hellos & making rounds, you know? So very small, very intimate.

My friend, Emily reminded me about something I said: “our wedding is on the moon…everyone’s invited.” Ha, aka no pressure. If people can come, great, if not, no worries.

♡ OMG, the dress:

Cinderella moment is out. More effortless, non princess-ish is in. I’m not into the Barbie look for me. It works so well for so many women, but at this point in my life I’d prefer an effortless, shoulder showing/backless look. In high school, I did the hot pink, Paris Hilton look & I feel like it’s something I’d never go back to. Especially when I’m getting married.

Also, I don’t want to spend a billion dollars on the dress because I’ll wear it once. So for my dress: simple, chic, relaxed, effortless. Don’t want to show a lot of tit either. HA. Classier the better for this day. I haven’t done any real dress shopping. Besides on Instagram ( do screenshots count? ). Tips?

* Dress above is from 5 seconds of trying on wedding dresses at a cute, little shop under my house. It was more for fun.

♡ Hair…can I be real though?:

Michael fell in love with me when my hair was down, unwashed ( I know weird, unwashed…lol ). When I get married, it will most likely be down, unwashed. Personally, I’m not one for up-do’s because I look like a 5th grader in braces & a training bra, but again, that’s just me. There are a ton of things that work for other people, but not for me. If an up-do looks good on you, LUCKYYYY.

I won’t highlight my hair before I get married because I like a little highlight growth. If you know what I’m talking about, you’re my spirit animal. Having dye on the root looks weird on me.

♡ Food…keeping it simple:

Here’s the thing: people think they’re feeding Rose’s mom in Titanic at weddings. I’m not a fan of this method. Generally it seems people are pretty simple when it comes to food. You know: simple staples. I’m more of a street taco and chips & spicy guac girl myself. Like dover sole with caviar & truffle potatoes is way too intense, in my opinion.

Also, I’d love a good old In & Out truck for later in the night. For our food, it’s going to be food we love that’s simple & just DAMN GOOD.

& no 6 million dollar, lace adorned, overly sweet cake  ( who even eats the cake anyway?? In & Out sounds better to me ). I’d be perfectly happy with a Funfetti cupcake.

♡ Drinks— because YES:

CHAMPAGNE IS A NECESSITY. And of course, Michael & I love craft cocktails so hopefully we can get someone who’s a boss at shaking a real deal, old school drink. Think: ginger margaritas, stirred Old Fashion’s, & lemon/cucumber gin sours. MMMmm. Being real, I’d also love a keg of Stella. Gotta keep it classy.

♡ Getting into decor:

Decor is the same as the dress. I don’t want princess vibes. I want more of a neutral vibe. Again, relaxed/simple with my own personal twist. Haven’t planned much here so there’s not much to report. Need to get on it. Soon. LOL.

So literally I just made my full-on list of what I’ve done so far. On my blog. To all of you. Is this pathetic?

I think I wanted to do this post so I could show myself just how far behind I am at planning this wedding. Because if you really look at the list, I haven’t ACTUALLY planned a thing, ya know. There’s just an idea in my head of how I want it to go. Got to remind myself that The Skinny Confidential started the same way. An idea. That I sat on. And kind of cultivated. So let’s hope my wedding thoughts keep coming…by the way, this is a very real post so please don’t judge.

Perhaps it could be worse? I could be a raging Bridezilla & talk Michael’s ear off every second about napkin colors?

On that note, I’m trying to look at the whole wedding thing from a logical business standpoint too. Personally I’d rather invest money into our businesses & not go bankrupt over one day. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Besides the honeymoon is what really tickles my fancy.

( I know, I’m THAT bad. I’m more excited for the honeymoon, than the wedding ).

OH! & another reason I did this post is FOR ADVICE! I know a bunch of you are engaged or married: what’s your take on the whole situation? What has your experience been like? If you’re not engaged or married, what’s your ultimate vision?

Ok, I am off to watch Grey’s Anatomy, ice my face, & drink 100 bottles of Perrier.

– lauryn x

P.S. don’t even get me started on bridesmaid showers, penis straw bachelorette parties, & gift registries, etc. Nothing against them, I just want to keep it melllllowwww. Imagine me as Zen Bride.

A Supermodel’s Best Kept Secret

The Skinny Confidential talks gelatin capsules.

{ gelatin capsules }

When I went to Miami I hung out with an amazingly beautiful top model. Like, she was GORGEOUS. Not only was she a stunner, she was reallllll in to health & wellness.

And of course ( because duh ) I asked her: what’s your best kept secret??

The model went on to tell me about something I had nooooo clue about: GELATIN CAPSULES.

You know how everyone tells you biotin is OH-SO-AMAZING FOR HAIR & NAIL GROWTH?

Well, according to this babe & all her model friends gelatin, gelatin is a million times better. She said that she’s modeled all over the world & all the top models take it daily. She talked about gelatin for literally ten minutes straight listing the benefits, as my jaw hung on the table like WTF/OMG. And then she went on to say it’s a total secret & all her beautiful, perfect-looking model friends SWEAR by this magic capsule.

So naturally I rushed home & sped to the closet health food store to buy my own supply #sosueme.

How did I not know about gelatin for all these years?! What the hell? I’ve interview hundreds of top models & none of them have shared this secret?

Before I tested it out though, I did my own research & shit…she wasn’t lying. Check it out:


You guys know I’m allllll about prevention so when I see the words ‘reduces wrinkles,’ I get giddy. There’s A LOT OF STUDIES ( like tons ) say “You know those $50+ wrinkle reducer miracle creams that don’t work? Save a lot of money by just taking gelatin internally each day and using coconut oil for skin care! Gelatin is essentially cooked, powdered collagen ( that ingredient they charge you an arm and a leg for that doesn’t even work well externally… ). Taking gelatin internally provides the body the building blocks to build great skin, hair and nails from the inside out and helps reduce wrinkles.”


It’s not the most amazing source of protein but it gets the job done because it’s filled with amino acids!! Actually to be exact there’s half of the 18 essential amino acids. And anything with amino acids? I’m in.


Here’s the deal: you can ingest gelatin & it really, really will help your hair/nails grow. Literally no joke, my friend Sophie from the blog Angel Food Style, texted me other day saying “I accidentally lit my hair on fire what should do ( laugh/cry Emoji x 400 )?” I said: “GELATIN!!” So take gelatin if you want to grow longer hair & longer nails ( I’m assuming this is 99 percent of the female population? ).

If you want to use it as a hair mask, I found this tip on Pinterest: “To make, stir one tablespoon of gelatin powder in to 1/2 cup of cool water until mixed. Add 1/2 cup warm/hot water, one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and one teaspoon of honey to create a thick gel/liquid. Pour into hair and massage through hair and scalp. Leave on for at least five minutes and rinse with hot water. Shampoo as normal.”


YES. Hormones are funny, remember? According to this source: “too much estrogen in the body (which can be caused by all sorts of reasons including hormonal imbalances, over exposure to phytoestrogens like those found in soy, and xenoestrogens found in plastics) can cause inflammation, infertility and promote accelerated aging. The wonderful, and seemingly endless benefits of gelatin have anti-estrogenic effects which can help offset the effects of excess estrogen in the body.”


Apparently a lot of people in the fitness & model industry consume one tablespoon of gelatin before bed in green or chamomile tea. Gelatin boosts the metabolism & human growth hormone production. Oh & it totally helps heal the digestive track ( so, so good for you! ) & helps improve the appearance of cellulite.

If you’re not in to pill popping ( hey, some people hate swallowing pills ), try gelatin gummies!

Wait what?

Yessss. According to this source: “gummies made from grass fed gelatin ( you can find quality gelatin here ) and sweetened with raw honey ( instead of refined sugar or chemical sweeteners ) are one of the healthiest treats you can have ( some recipes here: lemon gummiesorange gummies and strawberry lemonade gummies )! And they are also something that the entire family can agree on. They’ll think they’re eating candy and you know that you’re feeding them bone-building blocks and a gut-healing superfood ( store-bought version here ).”

I mean, geez. I’ve certainly been missing out. A WHOLE NEW WORLD, RIGHT?!

And obviously when I heard about this model-esque secret I had to let you guys in…

The best way to get your gelatin in is to EAT it!! You can add it to oatmeal, meats, seafoods, smoothies, &/or salads or soups ( SEE BELOW : ) ). It helps with the absorption of nutrients too. This brand is the best, in my opinion!

BUT. I also went out and bought the capsules because sometimes I don’t have enough time…LOL.

Ok so, there you have it! Gelatin is kind of FREAKING AMAZING.

My recommendation ( as always ): do your own research before you ingest anything. I’m just sharing what works for ME! Do what works for YOU.

Oh & by the way, THE ABSOLUTE BEST WAY TO CONSUME GELATIN? Bone broth AKA ‘The Botox Substitute ‘ creates gelatin in your body too. The breakdown of the collagen in bone broths is what produces gelatin, so drink up!

Do you take gelatin? Have you heard of it? Anyone?

Happy Tuesday! Until next time, Lauryn
