AAAHHHHHHH COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!
Because I’m finally writing a blog post all about my 2nd book Get The Fuck Out Of The Sun.
The last 3 years have been spent working on the chapter outlines, proposal, interviewing, researching, emailing, writing, editing, designing, shooting pictures, QUARANTINING & WRITING MORE, setting up a fun marketing plan, & studying.
The Skinny Confidential’s Get The Fuck Out Of The Sun
Every detail has been signed, sealed & delivered to YOU by me. SKINCARE can be so overwhelming SOOO you know I had to create a BIG ASS ( BARBIE PINK ) resource.
By no means am I a skincare expert, simply a practitioner who’s lucky enough to have access to the tricks of the trade. Which is why I went straight to the source.
That’s right- 100+ of the top-tier influencers, celebrities, podcasters, doctors, & experts ARE GIVING US THE JUICE. But wait, that’s not all- it will be like we’re at a boozy brunch together- seriously I spill every HOT TIP I’ve picked up over the last 11 years in this industry. SO MANY SKINCARE SECRETS, MY GOD.
Not only will you bookmark the fuck out of the book, you will want it on your coffee table too. It’s cute, it’s bubblegum pink, it looks hot on your instagram feed…& LIKE IT’S FULL OF VALUE.
Here’s the deal:
You don’t have to read it cover to cover- in fact, grab a glass of chilled rosé & open it to any page to learn ALL the skincare things.
SO who is this book for? Well, YOU- DUH. But mostly it’s for anyone who’s curious about the best, most iconic, skin savvy tips- all in one. think of it as your personal SKINCARE RESOURCE- at your service.

As I said, this book has been in the making for the last 3 years.
It was complex because it wasn’t just reliant on me. I went to about 200+ influencers, celebrities & doctors to collect their opinions & answers. To lay the foundation I knew I had to create a compelling book proposal. It needed to be very clear to the publishers what I was trying to do: share all my tips and tricks while spilling the tips & tricks from top-tier influencers too. It was cheeky, pink & showcased that it would be like the reader & I were at happy hour.
I underestimated was how crazy it was to gather information & photos from 200+ people.
There was so much back & forth over email and DM, there were lawyers involved, & my team & I had to organize everything so it was as streamlined as possible. So it involved writing my own book, but simultaneously I was essentially compiling another book featuring other people.
When writing Get The Fuck Out Of The Sun, I wanted to keep with the same fun, light, cheeky tone that I write the blog in: like I’m talking with my friends over a cocktail.
So many skin books I’ve read are so boring & dry, just not visually appealing. This book is all about having a casual convo in terms we can all understand. It flows too. So you won’t hear me talking about an ice roller then going right into why SPF is important. That wouldn’t make sense think ice roller >> lymphatic drainage. It flows.
HOPE YOU LOVE.
Also, wanted to share some testimonials from some of my favorite badasses with you:
I met The Skinny Confidential for the first time when we did a haircut live online! Not only did she steal the show, she helped me look amazing while doing it. Seeing her grow her following, being the queen of content & now having a BOOK makes me so happy & I wouldn’t expect anything less!!!
