Hi, hello from Boston!

So we already recapped PART I, now it’s time for PART II. I know what you’re thinking…does this ever end? Well not really because there’s like 3 more PARTS. What can I say? There’s a lot of content to go through & I want to bring you guys along. However I can’t post a million posts at once, I have to take it slow.

With that, let’s get into today’s post k?

FIRST THINGS FIRST: CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE VEIL. UGHHHH. It was so good.

Honestly I think it made the wedding dress. We will get to the wedding dress but the veil was just so magical. Intially my friend, Eileen, texted me her amazing veil & I was immediately inspired to do something INTENSE. LONGGGGGG, FLOWLY, DRAMATIC, JUST ABSURD almost. So when EDEN LUXE Bridal reached out & I checked out Heather’s Instagram– I immediately knew it was a fit. Her vibe is on point. Heather was a fucking rockstar. She crafted the most beautiful handmade veil with a gold crown. Honestly if you’re looking for a veil for your wedding, HEATHER IS 100% THE WAY TO GO.

las vegas day to night | by the skinny confidential

Hello, hello!

I just got back from Las Vegas for Revolve’sGirl’s Night Out.’ Very fun to enjoy a little brunch, do some window shopping & hang out with some inspiring influencers. The trip was a whirlwind & now I’m getting ready for Boston…at 6 am tomorrow. My voice sounds like a breathy smoker who ate a frog. Really my voice is shot- I am attributing this to podcasting for 5 hours straight on Friday? Who knows. Maybe I just talk too much in general. Anyway, I need to shut up clearly.

Ok, ok so Michael & I leave tomorrow but first things first, I want to share my Vegas look before I share PART II of our wedding.

With that:

VEGAS: DAY TO NIGHT…A LITTLE SILVER & A LOT OF PINK:

DAY VIBE:

Hungover? WHO ISN’T IN VEGAS? It’s kind of the ongoing theme, no? When you’re getting on a flight this hoodie is so much YES. I also love a good book ( currently reading The Other Man ), of course an ice roll & my handy-dandy hangover elixir. I put the powder & capsules in a little reusable

A Real Throw Back: DIY Fruit By The Foot

If you don’t know what fruit roll-ups are, have you lived?

I mean Gushers, Dunk-a-Roos, Capri Sun, Rippin’ Berry-Berry Fruit By The Foot were on repeat when I was a kid. Isn’t this everyone else’s childhood memories? I feel like orange soda & Lunchables were everywhere too. So crazy to think about…my how things have changed.

In regards to fruit roll-ups you remember the old slogan: “Real fruit and fun, rolled up in one.”

Except they were NOT JUST real fruit. The fun was a bunch of added bullshit like: corn syrup, dextrose, cottonseed oil, citric acid, sodium citrate, acetylated monoglycerides, fruit pectin, malic acid, ascorbic acid, natural flavors, and artificial colors.

SUSPICIOUS, NO?

If I’m eating something that’s 3 feet long ( insert sex joke ), that’s going to stain my tongue, it better be good…& contain simple ingredients. Which is why I’m sharing this EASY, QUICK, DIY, Fruit By The Foot à la TSC Style for ya:

TSC MANGO/STRAWBERRY FRUIT BY THE FOOT:

3 cups washed stemmed organic strawberries
1/2 mango, in chunks
1-2 tablespoons of raw manuka honey
A few squeezes of lemon
A little water

1. Preheat the oven to 250°F & line a large baking

instagram live makeup face chart | by the skinny confidential

You guys how sassy is Instagram LIVE? I’m LOVING it. Valentine’s Day we broke down a date night look & then Thursday we did a live Q&A while Kelsey & Shawn did my make-up & hair.

So now I’m going to share the EXACT make-up products + how to use them.

The real secret to great make-up? A great base. Stay hydrateddrink your collagen, use face and eye masks & moisturize with oils. I also LOVE to use my ice roller before doing makeup to help de-puff my face. Taking care of your skin is crucial for prevention.

With that, let’s dive right into make-up:

PREP:

{ PRIME }

+ Slather face & neck with rosehip oil & caffeine sunscreen

ROSEHIP OIL

If you follow along on Snapchat, you already know this oil is A MUST. Rosehip oil helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, eye bags, fine lines & more. Studies have shown that it can also help to reverse the adverse effects of prolonged sun exposure. Need I say more?

CAFFEINE SUNSCREEN

I’m obsessed with a good caffeinated sunscreen ( << been using this everyday, every second lately because the caffeine tightens …
