Lo Bosworth ring a bell?

Probs. Especially if you were born in this century.

I mean…I feel like the “The Hills” was sort of a given via the 2000′s.

I was more concerned with who was hooking up with who & what size Heidi’s latest boob job was than I was with college…#guilty.

Anyway, Lo Bosworth was always a fav on the show so it’s really, really rad to see her killing it at life. She’s making moves as a legit chef, blogger, YouTuber, & author…you guys know how I love woman entrepreneurs.

Side: Lo & I also happened to work on the same Benefit Cosmetics campaign where we shared our brow tips ( Lo’s here // mine here ).

Ok, so read on to see Lo’s favorite superfood, workout, & beauty tip:

| Introduce yourself. Tell us about your background & your cooking experience. |

Lo Bosworth: Hi! I’m Lo Bosworth. I’m training to be a professional chef at The International Culinary Center in NYC and I absolutely love it. My goal is to eat healthy, pure foods that taste great so that definitely influences my cooking style. I’m a southern California girl living in the city and plan on sticking around for a while. The food scene here is incredible!

| How have you changed since Laguna Beach & The Hills? |

LB: Entering my late 20′s has affected my lifestyle choices above all else. I eat healthy, I exercise four to five days a week, I hang out with awesome people, & I’m focused on building a career for myself in the food space. Becoming a full-fledged adult means being accountable for your every action.

| How healthy cooking has impacted your life. |

LB: Cooking healthfully is of the utmost importance to me. I only have this one body & this one life, so putting clean, pure, & healthy food in to fuel my day is very important.

| Favorite superfood ? |

LB: My favorite superfood is pumpkin. It’s the most versatile superfood I’ve encountered yet in terms of cooking. It works equally well in savory and sweet dishes.

| Favorite healthy dish to make your boy? |

LB: I love making homemade sushi & sashimi with different sauces I mix up in a blender. I mix traditional Japanese flavors with fruits and veggies for a unique raw experience.

| Best advice? |

LB: At the end of the day, nobody can take better care of yourself than you do.

| Beauty must have? |

LB: A good waterproof mascara— if applied after you curl your eyelashes they actually stay curly!

| Quick, easy, healthy recipe you would cook for your girlfriends? |

LB: I love making them roasted peppers stuffed with quinoa and ground turkey. They love them!

Ingredients:

+ 2 large peppers

+ 1 pound ground turkey

+ 1 small onion, diced

+ 14.5 oz can organic fire roasted tomatoes and green chilies ( can use fresh if desired )

+ 1/3 cup uncooked quinoa

+ 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

+ 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

+ 1/2 cup raw cheese of choice

+ 1/2 cup water

+ 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt

+ 1/4 tsp black pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 375F. Halve peppers lengthwise, remove stem and seeds and immerse peppers into boiling water for three minutes. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle the inside of the pepper with some salt. In a skillet over medium heat, heat turkey and onions till onions are tender and meat is cooked ( about five minutes ). Stir in uncooked quinoa, water, undrained tomatoes and chilies, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt & pepper. Cover and simmer for eighteen minutes. Remove lid and add 1/4 cup raw cheese. Fill peppers with meat mixture and put in a 8 x 8 x 2 pan and bake for fifteen minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese ( 1/4 cup ) and put back into oven for five minutes. Serve hot. Recipe found here

SOOOO…Michelle Money Shaves Her Face & I’m Kinda Intrigued

The Skinny Confidential talks shaving your face.

The Skinny Confidential talks shaving your face.

Guys. I took one for the team.

Like, big time took one for the team.

Team= you guys.

I shaved my face.

But wait, wait, wait, before you judge— I got the idea from hottie Michelle Money.

Ya. That’s right. The babetown bombshell shaves.her.face.

Like a guy.

But not really, actually like a guy because she’s a women.

Here’s the deal: her YouTube description say shaving your face as a women is “rumored to be an insider trick of bombshells like Marilyn Monroe and Betty Paige, shaving your face is the perfect way to remove unwanted ( unladylike ) facial hair, giving a thorough exfoliation and creating a smooth canvas to apply foundation and the rest of your makeup to.”

Hmmm. I’m going to just go ahead & say I’m not the only one who’s intrigued.

Basically let me set it up for ya: I’m sitting in bed on a Friday night like a total loner, watching beauty YouTube videos drinking wine. Totally standard. Anyway, up pops Michelle Money’s beauty series. & I’m all, “hmm, ok, she’s hot, let’s see what she has to say.” So I flick on her channel & cuddle into bed.

& then I see it.

The life-changing video title: “OMG Michelle Money Shaves Her Face.”

So naturally, immediately I turn on the video, nearly spitting my Pinot Noir all over my white bedding.

I mean….HER TIPS though.

This particular tip was such a ‘Skinny Confidential tip’ that I couldn’t NOT, not share with you guys.

So basically I spent the rest of my raging Friday night ordering pastel colored Tinkles ( ya tinkle, like a five year old peeing kinda tinkle ) off Amazon.

Now it’s a few days later & here we are: I shaved my face Monday & it’s probably the coolest thing since landing on the moon.

I feel like it’s not actually shaving, shaving. It’s more of an eyebrow razor kind of shave. It’s not invasive at all & super simple.

And let’s get real, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I’m going to play for ‘Team Everyone’ for a sec: no one in the whole world wants to see hair all one your face. It’s not cute. Probably won’t ever be cute.

And the worst thing ever? If you’re in the sun with your boy toy & your lip is hairier than his. So.so.not.hot.

Get your facial hair in check. This is a easy, inexpensive ( they’re $3.75 for 3 razors ) way to keep those facial strays under control. Plus it makes makeup application go on super smooth & perf. Oh, & it’s the best exfoliate ever ( BTW: Michelle says do this once a week ).

Now to answer the main burning question: does it grow back thicker? ( Because who needs thicker facial hair? LOLZ. ).

No.

At least, not according to Michelle Money.

Watch the video below & thank me ( & MM ) later.

Have fun with your Tinkles! I know I did ; ). x L

The Skinny Confidential’s Biz Plan: An Upside Down Triangle (( Start Small // Think Big ))

Lauryn Evarts talks diet, fitness, fashion, & health.

When I decided to launch The Skinny Confidential years ago I had a very, very distinct plan ( that whole story found here ).

My business plan was seriously, so simple: an upside down triangle.

Say what?

Yah.

An upside down triangle.

I wanted to start with one thing ( blogging ) & become very, very knowledgeable in that one thing. I didn’t want to start with this HUGE, gnarly idea & expand outward.

The goal was to keep it simple, stupid.

So.

My advice on starting any kind of biz: if you’re looking to get into a certain field, think of the upside down triangle. Start small, think big.

After countless hours/experience you should become pretty damn good at the one thing & you’ll know when it’s time to slowly expand out.

Find your niche AKA the very tip of your triangle.

The tiny tip of my triangle began with blogging & it’s slowly growing outward to a brand.

Ultimately I’d take quality over quantity any day.

On Instagram the other day I saw this quote & it so, so resonated:

“You can do anything but not everything.”

Loves.

Ok, now get out there & kill it! Happy Thursday—

X L

Oh & since we’re on the subject, watch this video that a sweet reader sent me…literally GOOSEBUMPS.
