The Best Self-Tanner

The Best Self-Tanner-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

I’m currently in love with the Isle of Paradise self-tanning drops (in medium) and I wanted to share all about it today! I’ve tried a lot of self-tanners in the past but I always hate the smell, how they leave me looking orange, and that it gets all over my sheets and towels. Luckily, none of those things happen when using these self-tanning drops and I really love that I’m able to mix them with my favorite lotion. Here’s how you use them:

  1. I start with clean skin, and usually apply self-tanner after taking a shower.
  2. I pick my favorite lotion (this is the one I’m using right now) and put enough in my hand to coat 1 arm, and I add 3 drops of Isle of Paradise. Then I mix it together and apply it evenly to my arm.
  3. I do the same thing as step 1 but for my other arm, each of my legs, and then my neck and chest. I find that this works well to get an even color when I do each area separately.
  4. After I apply the lotion and self-tanning drop mixture to my knees, elbows, and feet I use a beauty blender to rub it in really well. These spots can be a little tricky with self-tanner, and it prevents these areas from getting splotchy.
  5. I use these self-tanning drops twice a week to maintain the right color.

Have you tried the Isle of Paradise self-tanning drops?

Flutter Sleeve Dress

This flutter sleeve dress has quickly become a favorite of mine! I picked it up randomly at Kohl’s a couple months ago, and it’s one of my favorite dresses to wear it to work with a pair of flats. I also love it so much that I purchased it in this leopard print too which is a great piece to transition into fall with a denim jacket and a pair of ankle boots. This dress is also under $25 which is definitely a steal!

On a side note, I’ve been embracing my naturally curly hair recently (I didn’t use a curling iron or anything here) and I plan on doing a full blog post about what I use and how I get my hair to look like this. I haven’t touched a flat iron in months and I’m loving it!

Recent Amazon Finds

Today I’m excited to share some recent Amazon finds with you (you can see my past Amazon finds here and here)! Amazon has become my go to place for clothes lately (in addition to some local shops and Old Navy of course), and I ordered this floral tie front top and yellow midi dress. I love them both, but I did have to try this midi dress in a couple sizes until it was the right fit. Just make sure you always order clothes that have free shipping and free returns!

I’ve also recently discovered the jewelry selection on Amazon and I love these leopard beaded earrings that look like the BaubleBar pair, and these silicone rings are perfect for when working out or going to the beach.

When we were at the beach, the condo that we rented had this ‘Good Night Beach‘ book and Charlotte was obsessed. I promptly ordered it for her, along with ‘Good Night North Carolina.’

I’ve also been wanting a pair of air pods lately, but couldn’t justify the price tag. I ordered this pair of earbuds from Amazon that are under $50 and they are perfect for when I’m at the gym or going on walks around the neighborhood.

Have you found any good finds on Amazon recently?

Casual LBD

This casual LBD is perfect for the end of summer with these leopard statement earrings and nude flats. It’s also a great piece to transition into fall and I can see myself also wearing it with a long cardigan and a pair of ankle boots. I wore this outfit over the weekend when my husband and I went out to brunch just the two of us. It has been so nice spending more time just the us, and my parents actually watched Charlotte overnight while we went to the Kacey Musgraves concert which was amazing.

Do you have a casual LBD that you love?
