I really don’t think it’s necessary to spend hours taking your makeup from day to night… nor is it necessary to take your day makeup off and start over. Here I’m showing you the first in a two-part on quick and easy day to night makeup. Enjoy!

I’m thinking of upping my video content to twice a week… thoughts? Would you watch twice a week? What kind of videos would you like to see?

      Ohhhh tough choice… Is your style more classic or edgy? I went with the slides because I wanted to look a bit edgier… But the loafers will be chic until the end of time 🙂

    Can I ask you where you get your hair cut?

      Of course! I am still seeing my stylist back in Vancouver since I get my hair cut so infrequently… Her name is Ali at Barrette Salon 🙂

    Hi Jill! I love your blog and I also love that you always put the products as well as the links! I’ve been so careful about having my face in the sun in my 20’s, but I always feel like it’s so pale compared to the rest of my body, even with the help of bronzer. I just recently grabbed the St. Tropez tanning mousse but I’m really nervous about using it on my face because it came out streak-y on my legs! How do you apply it so it doesn’t look bad?? I’d love to see a tutorial on your face self tanning routine sometime! Keep up the good work 🙂

      Hi Beth, thanks so much! I totally get it, my face is always so much paler than my body. For my face (and my body actually), I use the mitt to apply. I used to think it was such a gimmick, but it honestly makes a really big difference with streaks and even application.I’ve also been using the St. Tropez in shower gradual tan and I love it. It doesn’t streak (that I’ve found) and I can still apply moisturizer after the shower. This kit is the perfect starter if you need it: http://bit.ly/2l8Wztp

      Hope that’s helpful!
