I have a new tip.

A tip that has changed my neck pain. A tip that has given me energy. A tip that feels really good.

It’s simple, nothing expensive. Quick. To the point. Anyone can do it.

You might already know the tip if you follow along on Snapchat or Insta. Lately it’s been so efficient for me to immediately share products I like, which is why it’s my favorite App. I am a human guinea pig. I try things all the time for you guys. There are so many things I never share because they suck. If I choose to share anything know that I like it, I use it, I believe it. If I don’t, I don’t share it. Easy.

Anyway, the tip. Let’s get to it: AN ACUPRESSURE MAT.

It’s kind of like a little bed of nails?

Michael introduced me to the product.

Michael has this problem. He orders too much off Amazon. It’s absurd. He orders too many books, weird contraptions ( do we really need a crockpot & hot chocolate maker? ), & random vitamins ( without asking me…& we have to send half of them back because they’re GMO or bullshit …

must have beauty products | by the skinny confidential


Updated: January 21, 2017

I’m a beauty junkie.

So you should know finding products I love, love, love is one of my favorite things to do.

I’m all about the healthy skin & the minimal makeup trend right now too. I feel like it’s here to stay so I’m totally embracing it. I’ll even do a bare face to go out. It’s so refreshing.

Obviously I want to share what I’m stocking up on: a few amazing products to boost my complexion. No heavy cake-face makeup. And of course a good face mask.

Let’s get right to it: 3 essential products for glowy skin.


First off, this smells like a Pina Colada so it perfect because of my Mexico obsession. Secondly, it comes with an application brush. Genius. I’m a major fan of this line in general. I’ve had this mask forever.…

My Moody, Modern Wedding Invitations

Updated: January 18, 2017

Modern Wedding Invitations 1 | by the skinny confidential Surprise, surprise I became the pickiest bitch on the planet five seconds before my wedding invites needed to be sent out…so THANK GOD BLISS & BONE commented on a pre-wedding Instagram pic.

I had looked all over the Internet to find a wedding invite that didn’t look like a wedding invite.

Nothing was working for me.

As we know I’m very specific at the last-minute always.

The invitation sets the scene. It sets the tone. The vibe. AND OF COURSE the invitation needed to start the story off.

So we couldn’t go with white, bridal, glitter, etc.

Literally after looking for gothic invites EVERYWHERE, I stumbled across BLISS & BONE on Instagram.

Here’s the deal I know what I like the second I see what I like…HA. And BLISS & BONE were it. Immediately. No questions asked.

Cindy, the founder, hopped on a call with me & I told her I wanted dark, Calla lilies with a twist. Then we asked you guys…and then…….

…BOY. Did she deliver.

Here’s the thing: sometimes I’m not the best at communicating exactly what’s in my head ( is anyone else like this? ). But Cindy immediately got my vision. In fact, there were …

YES PLEASE: 5 Ways To Make Your Perfume Last Longer

Updated: January 19, 2017

PERFUME TIPS 10 | by the skinny confidential PERFUME TIPS 2 | by the skinny confidential

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a long, LONG time.


Let’s face it: there’s NOTHING worse than spraying a few spritzes of your favorite perfume & then ten minutes later feeling like the scent has disappeared.

This is especially dreadful for me because…I just hate deodorant.

So I really need my fragrance to last, you know? We have to be efficient in my case. Like the fragrance needs to come through BIG TIME. It needs to really fulfill its role.

PERFUME TIPS 13 | by the skinny confidentialPERFUME TIPS 1 | by the skinny confidential

Here are my ride or die tips for making my perfume last longer:

1.) Perfume storage:

So to really make your perfume last longer, avoid storing them in damp, warm places ( I put mine on my vanity by my closet, not in my bathroom! ). Also never put your perfume in front of a window- they fade! To give them a little pretty detail, display them on a mirrored platform or vintage cake stand.

2.) Biggest tip ( as always ) is OILS:

Apply some grape seed or coconut oil to your body before you put on a fragrance. The oil makes the scent stay …
