Summer Beauty Favorites!

While Labor Day usually marks the end of the Summer season, the weather we’ve been having lately has been suggesting otherwise. It’s clear that Mother Nature is not ready to move on & I’m okay with that! We can take our time. 😉

This past Saturday, my sister  + I had the opportunity to go to BeautyCon in New York City! Neither of us had ever been before, but since it was right in our backyard, we jumped at the chance to attend. It was quite the experience – so many people, so many YouTubers, bloggers + celebrities, lots of freebies, great panels, and a ton of new products + beauty apps to try!

Since I really do look forward to Fall, the ‘losing-my-tan thing’ is what bums me out the most. I’ve been retired from the tanning beds for years, but that hasn’t stopped me from getting an off-season glow! I’ve talked about some of my favorite self tanning products many – times – before, but I wanted to share a few of my current favorites, as well as some tan-preservation tips with you!
