WHAT IS MY FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD?

Blowouts, der.

I love my blowouts like I love Farmer’s Market white tulips, chilled cocktails, & Meyer lemons.

HI, HEY UHHH HUGE BLOWOUT advocate over here.

I’m obsessed because I can get my work done ( the wifi is always so damn quick ) & get my hair done. Like at the same time.

You walk in feeling like Sloth from The Goonies & walk out feeling like Gisele, straight off the runway.

AND to get an hour of uninterrupted computer work done is huge for me.

MULTI-TASKING!

Anyway, why we are here today:

THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL IS HOSTING FOUR EVENTS WITH PALM BREEZE AT BLO BLOW DRY BAR!

The first event in San Diego is this Friday, May 8th from 5 pm to 9 pm.

Basically it will be all things girly ( sorry boys ). Think: free blowouts, TSC-approved cocktails ( we’ll get to that ), tropical music, summertime catering, AND I get to meet some of you guys!!

First things first, cocktail menu.

These drinks are made & tested ( this past weekend, to be specific ) by yours truly.

♡ The Bikini Breeze:

Real grapefruit juice
Palm Breeze
A drizzle ( …or 3/4 ) of champagne
Garnished with fresh mint

The Skinny Confidential x Palm Breeze.

Splash of sparkling water
Garnished with pomegranate seeds

Each event will be catered to fit the summertime vibe so think healthy, delicious, & colorful bites!

The playlist? Got ya covered. We’ll be playing all my favorites from these TSC Spotify Playlists:

THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL Tropical Vibes Playlist
THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL Teeny Weeny Bikini Playlist

Fun, right?!

The other 3 events will be held in Washington D.C. on May 11th, Dallas on May 28th, & Austin on May 29th ( click each city to R.S.V.P.). So come hang— more details to come!

If you’re planning on coming to get a free blowout & say hi, make sure you RSVP.

Date Night Get-Up

The Skinny Confidential talks skirts and shoes.

http://mindymaesmarket.com/products/sequin-a-line-swing-skirt

Lately I’ve been allllll about contrasting prints.

Think: leopard on stripes, palm prints on bright blues, or florals on gold. So it’s no surprise that I loved this sequin on stripes look for last week’s sushi date night.

I paired it with white heels ( weird, me in white shoes? lol ), oversized sunglasses, & a little light blue clutch.

The sequin skirt is from Mindy Mae Market ( p.s. they’re offering 20% off, for a week with the code skinny20 ) was a hit because it hangs to the perfect spot on the leg. Sometimes skirts will hit the wrong spot of the leg AKA an unflattering area ( which doesn’t do anyone any favors ). This skirt fell to my ankles & made me look taller/longer/leaner and paired with a high shoe, I felt like Gisele.

Well not really Gisele.

But you know, you get my drift. I just felt taller.

What I loved about the striped top is that it was a crop, but not a crop so when I tucked it into the skirt I didn’t get that muffin top look. Does that make sense? Basically there was no extra fabric.

Anyway, the date night…We went to Sugarfish in LA which seriously, honest to God has the best damn sushi ever. If you ever go, get the ‘Trust Me.’ The chef will just automatically send you out tuna, sashimi, edamames, & to-die-for rolls. The fish is fresh, the rice is warm ( like melt in your mouth kind of warm ), & the saki is delicious. We LOVE it. Totally craving it, every second of every day.

Ok, I’m off- happy Tuesday! Talk soon, Lauryn

Guess what?!

I, Lauryn Evarts, am really actually, seriously/seriously trying to go to bed earlier.

STRIDESSSSSSssss.

If I’m being honest I’m a creative kinda night owl.

The kind that stays up super late & works into the night.

As you guys know Michael’s not a fan of late nights on the comp.

SO.

I’m trying to get better about it.

{ gypsy turban vibes }

Really I am.

Last night I went to bed at midnight which is LIKE A BIG-ASS DEAL.

The night before I went to bed at 12:30 AM.

This is much better than my previous 2 AM bedtime, guys.

Much, much better.

And I know optimal sleep hours are around 10 PM so I’m a horrible example for everyone.

Anyway, this weekend we’re going to LA to move more stuff into our home…oh & MOVING FOR THE PAST FOUR MONTHS HAS BEEN SOOO FUN.

::sarcasm::

To say I’m happy the whole moving in together thing is almost over, is an understatement of the year/my life.

Some of you have asked me about my living situation: we’re living half time in Los Angeles & half time in San Diego, which will be crazy but hopefully fun? I’m excited because during the whole process I’ve been filming a bunch of videos on “how to move in with a man ( but really, I’ve learned it’s an art )” AKA mix masculine with feminine.

Let’s hope I can move this weekend’s bedtime to 11:30 am? Doable? I think so!

What’s your bedtime AND WHY? WHY/WHY/WHY? I know that sounds weird but why is that particular time your bedtime? I know, I’m nosey.

Happy Monday! – Lauryn, xx

My Grocery List

The Skinny Confidential talks groceries.

You guys have asked for a healthy grocery list soooooo TA-DA!! It’s here!

Keep in mind this is what I buy when I’m trying to eat VERY HEALTHY.

Don’t get all Judge Judy on me here & say it’s all healthy foods & I need to live a little BECAUSE I do live a little ( the In & Out burger, protein style with a small fries last week is an example ).

When it comes to stocking my fridge, I like to only keep healthy foods on hand.

If I have a craving for something that’s not so good, I will order something ( like a Cali burrito, Postmates style ) or go grab chips/salsa/guac/margs from the local Mexican restaurant.

I find when I keep crap in my house, I eat crap.

For instance, I bought a bunch of dark chocolate M&M’s for Halloween and ended up eating way too many.

For me having fresh foods on hand that are healthy, keep me eating healthy.

Watch the video for more details:

My Valentine’s Look

Heyyyyyyy guys!

Last Valentine’s post, I promise!!

But I wanted to show you what I wore for V-Day!! These pictures were taken in LA but I ended up packing this exact outfit & rocking it in Sedona, Arizona.

I’m ESPECIALLY in love with these nude pumps because they seriously look JUST like super expensive ( think $700 Jimmy Choo’s ) shoes but they’re Charles David and under $100:

By the way, if you’re looking for the shoes I’m wearing, check out these babies for A REAL steal.

I’m also a big fan of SALES! So when I saw this floral blouse I’d been eyeing on sale, I snagged it immediately.

Lately I’ve been so in to black, nudes, greys, & whites that I realized I was neglecting color. So I went on Forever 21 & bought this floral top & the one I’m wearing.

Scoreeeeeee.

Ok, let’s talk about this white bag (!!!) I MEAN!!! It’s from Forever 21 & again…in person looks full-on designer. This white bag is different & super fun, right?

I’m a total fan of buying trendier pieces at places like Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, &/or Urban Outfitters.

Ok so lastly, these BLACK JEANS ARE MY FAVORITE! And they’re under $50 bucks. They fit me like a glove & just really go well with everything. Remember I talked about them here? I’m strangely obsessed with them. Like if you saw my obsession with these jeans, you’d think I was weird.

If you want to check out how I ended up doing my hair & makeup, click here.

In other news- I really hope you guys all had a badass Valentine’s/Galentine’s. Sending good vibes from Sedona!!

– Lauryn, xx
