quote2b YES. YES. YES.

The other day I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram & I came across a quote by businessman, KILLER Gary Vee ( who is just fucking awesome, by the way ). The quote said: STOP DOING SHIT YOU HATE.

So obvious. So simple. BUT SO TYPICAL.

Seriously though. People wake up everyday for 40 years straight going to jobs they hate, working for people they hate, doing tasks they hate.


Ok so, today you’ve caught me in a specific mood. I mean things around here are getting HYPER ORGANIZED. After traveling & getting life-changing surgery, I’ve come to the realization that there are things I want to change, business-wise. SO I’m making proactive changes.

AKA instead of just continuing doing certain things I hate, I’m getting out of my comfort zone to make changes. It sucks, it’s hard at first, but it’s worth it. Better than looking back in 20 years & realizing I did things I didn’t like & became compliance.

The point of this post is to encourage you to do the same. Keeping this general: if you are in a situation that you HATE or if you have a habit you hate, change it.

Really, I can assure you there’s no fairy Godmother that’s going to appear from the sky & fix it, you know?

The only person you can count on to make these positive changes is YOU.

I’ve gotten a lot of e-mails from women who want to launch their own business because they’re working in a negative environment & want to branch out on their own.

My advice? Just do it. Pull the trigger.

Because if you don’t do it now, you’re wasting time and energy on things you hate.


It’s really surprisingly simple. Just put an end to it OR make moves towards getting yourself out of the negative situation.

Now this message may not apply to work or business at all; maybe this applies to an ongoing coffee date with someone you don’t really like. Maybe this applies to a specific workout ( AKA I hate long distance running, sorry— hate it ). Or maybe it’s more about something bigger than all of this.

What a waste of life to do things you hate, right?

To further the point, Gary breaks it down quickly in this YouTube video: “stop doing shit you hate, you have all the opportunity to crush it. There is no doubt in my mind that you are going to kill it and that is what I want to talk to you about today. I really want to talk about PP, patience and passion. There are way too many people in this room right now that are doing stuff that they hate. Please stop doing stuff that you hate! There is no reason in 2014 to do shit you hate! Promise me you won’t, because you can lose just as much money being happy as hell.

Anyway, I sincerely hope that if you’re doing something that makes you feel uncomfortable that you take steps to fix it & remove the issue from your life. YOU ARE WORTH IT.

So! Ask yourself: if you’re doing shit you hate today…how are you making proactive strides to get yourself out of these negative situations? AND of course, if you have any advice on the topic, WEIGH IN! I swear you guys always have such positive tips/tricks/advice.

Chat tomorrow!

beautyblender | by the skinny confidential

I CANNOT LIVE without a Beautyblender.

A couple of years ago I started to recognize that my skin was sort of, well, dry when I applied powder or foundation. Kind of BLEH, MEH.

I swiftly fixed this by adding a couple drops of moisturizer to any concealers or foundations that touched my face.

Then my absolute fixation with dewy skin came in to play.

First & foremost, if we meet in person ( which I really hope we do someday ), you’ll immediately see that I prefer a glowy, dewy face to a matte, powdered look. Just my preference.

As of recently, I learned a super rad trick from a professional makeup artist: ADD A DROP OF OIL TO YOUR FOUNDATION ( totally will do a video tutorial on this too ). Seriously the best trick of life. So lately I’ve skipped the whole moisturizer in the foundation & added oil instead.

If you’ve never put oil on your skin because you’re scared of well, oily skin, YOU NEED TO GIVE it a try.

Really though, I slather my skin in oil ( in a Britney Spears-I’m a slave for you, shiny way ).

I’m like a full on witch doctor with my oils. At home, I prefer coconut oil but I’m also a huge fan of Vitamin E oil, almond oil, & jojoba oil. These are all 100% natural raw oils that I find on Amazon. Unbelievably simple.

Anyway so yes, a drop of oil to my foundation before application- ALWAYS. This creates that dewy glow & keeps the skin hydrated with a post-sex glow.

( Coconut oil does not work as good for this makeup trick. Use Vitamin E or almond oil for best results ).

Ok so, when I’m traveling I will LITERALLY call down to room service & ask for a side of real olive oil. This sounds absolutely fucking crazy, but I assure you it’s not.

Room service brings up a bowl of oil & I use it the whole trip.

Makeup remover, lotion, foundation mixer, you name it, I use it. This happens every time we travel anywhere, swear.

Ok, ok but we’re getting off track here— let’s talk about the reason for this post: blending oils & foundations for a flawless finish.


I’ve tried brushes, my finger, compact blenders but nothing is as GOOD as a Beautyblender.

To be completely transparent, I’ve tried to cut corners & use fake beauty blenders from Forever21 ( they’re cheap & don’t work well— they’re super hard too. Weird. ). And nothing is as good as the real deal Beautyblender.

Yesterday I realized that I’ve used this little pink sucker the entire trip— at least 3 times a day. Obviously a blog post lightbulb went off.

( PAUSE: by the way, totally NOT a sponsored post ).

I use it to apply sunscreen— because no one wants white flakes hanging off their face like Kris Kringle.

I use it to apply my foundation x oil mixture.

I use it to blend powder.

I use it to blend contour ( << note: for contouring I also like to use makeup brushes, more here ).

The difference between a Beautyblender & everything else in the world?

Well there are a few things. The BB…

♡ creates a dewy, Jessica Alba look
♡ does some crazy voo-doo shit where it sort of ( chemically?? ) blends the makeup together making your face look like skin instead of alligator scales.

♡ doesn’t give you that orange line where your face looks different than your neck.

♡ is the best travel companion because it’s small AND HIGHLY efficient.

♡ can take ABUSE. This is creepy & weird: the more I use mine without washing it, the better my BB works because it absorbs the oils of the skin.

& before you think I’m nasty, remember J.Lo’s makeup artist famously said that “mixing oils of the skin together creates a way better finish.” I feel like the Beautyblender does just that: mix the oils of the skin together for the ideal finish.

I was online trying to figure out why the hell I like it so much ( it’s kind of indescribable ) & I found the perfect word for it: the blotting sponge is BOUNCY. It bounces off your skin in the perfect way.

This beauty blogger said:

I dot foundation all over my face, like usual, then use the slightly dampened sponge to kind of “bounce” over the areas and blend the foundation into my skin.The sponge very easily melts the product into your skin without having those annoying drag marks you sometimes get with a brush. You can use the smaller pointy end for harder to reach areas such as around your nose and between the eyes.

Obviously many of you guys have heard of a Beautyblender, but if you don’t use it daily, you’re missing out. Basically I’d rather not apply makeup without it.

SO! Your turn: share your ride or die beauty product below.

In other news, we’re off to Milan right now ( actually mid-air to be precise ). Very excited because PIZZAAAAAAA. Follow along on Snapchat ( UN: laurynevarts ). Any Italian recommendations? Your recommendations for Paris were on point.

Happy Tuesday. L

Friday Vibes: A Sexy, Sultry Red Lip Anyone Can Pull Off

Hello, hello!

It’s Thursday & we’re discussing: LIPSTICK.

I love lipstick.

But it’s most definitely one of those added touches that looks really, really banging or it’s just done WRONG.

Lipstick shades are like highlights. It’s very easy to rock the wrong shade. Like for instance with highlights, you want to look at your skin tone, eye color, face shape, etc.

Same goes for lipstick shades.

For me, I have bright blonde hair and a light to medium complexion ( depending on whether I went with Mystic Level 1 or 3 ). My best red shades tend to be blue-y reds. An orange-ish red brings out the wrong colors in my hair & sometimes brings out brown tones in my skin. As we discussed, if I go near the sun, a full blown mustache appears above my upper lip. #CHIC.

Needless to say, I avoid orange tones like the plague.

My advice on finding the right lipstick shade FOR YOU: go to MAC or the Nars counter at Nordstrom or Sephora & ask one of the salesgirls. They’re super happy to help. Also, Google is your best friend. I’ve found my favorite shades by utilizing Google.

To get my lips ready for a Friday night out, I ALWAYS BRUSH MY LIPS with a toothbrush. It’s a trick I picked up in high school & I swear it’s the best for getting circulation to the lips & keeping them exfoliated.

( Side note: I’m always on the hunt for weird tips & tricks like this, so if you have any, leave them below. The weirder the better. )

Anyway, I’m getting real into the YouTube scene ( it’s fun, right ), so here’s a little tutorial of my favorite Friday night lip. Make yourself at home, grab some popcorn, & enjoy the show:

How to Trick Your BF Into Cooking For You

If you’ve been following TSC on Snapchat you know Michael has been cooking!!

Well he’s been cooking kind of.

Blue Apron has been doing half the work.

Remember how I shared this arugula pesto pasta dish? Well, since then Michael & I have become OBSESSED with Blue Apron’s services.

The concept is too easy & efficient to NOT use. You get the ingredients delivered straight to your door, measured out, ready to go, with a recipe.

So yes, Michael’s been ‘cooking’.

This week’s meal was spicy lentil stew. Literally as good as it sounds. See:

Basically all fresh ingredients ( think: garlic, red onion, peppers, mint, & delicious spices ) with yellow lentils.

AND SPOTLIGHT ON LENTILS BECAUSE they’re kind of the best carb ever. Some quick benefits: they’re filled with protein, lower cholesterol, amazing for the heart, support digestive health ( HEY FIBER ), & stabilize blood sugar.

Anyway, what I love about Blue Apron is the menu changes all the time & it’s always clean. With their services it’s really, very easy to trick your BF/GF/fiancé/husband into cooking for you. Like last night we had the whole wheat spaghetti with basil & lemon. You would have thought Michael handmade the noodles himself & seriously planted the basil, he was grinning from ear to ear when he completed the meal…so proud of the final product ( cute, right ).

Really though, it’s a win/win because Michael thinks he created the whole meal entirely by himself & I get to eat healthy while he’s busy thinking that.

Any other tips for tricking guys into cooking for you? Tell, tell.

If you’re interested in trying out Blue Apron, the first 50 readers will get two free meals on their first order— just click here!
