Self-Tanning Dupe | Bare Minerals vs. L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Mousse

Happy Friday, lovelies! It has been feeling a lot like summer in LA this week! That said, it is also time for some sunless tanning! I’ve recently discovered a dupe for Bare Minerals Faux Tan Face glow! Faux face has been my quick, go-to face tanning shade lately.  I feel like when I wear it, it is enough of a sun kissed look and makes for less makeup to wear.  I have recently discovered that the Bare Mineral’s faux face shade is nearly identical to one of my favorite drugstore self-tanners: L’oreal Sublime Bronze Mousse! Faux Tan Face sells for $26, while L’Oreal’s is in the $7 price range.  It i difficult to notice any difference between the two shades!

In this photo:  Bare Mineral’s Faux Tan Face is worn on my face, & L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze is worn on my neck & décolletage.  Sublime Bronze is an exact dupe!

For work and especially in warmer weather, I go through a lottttttt of self-tanners!  Nothing really beats a professional spray tan, but sometimes I only have time for diy method.  My faux glow is almost out, so I will probably just use the L’Oreal mousse on my face and body for my upcoming photo shoot. Shooooop-aaaaa-dupe!!!  Hope you enjoy the video and please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel & give this video a thumbs up :))))) Thanks so much for watching & have a beautiful, sunshiney weekend, my loves!

Summer Vacation in Solvang!

Why does summer vacation always feel like it flew by entirely too fast!?  Last week was a blessed R&R week spent at Alisal Ranch in Solvang, CA. Alisal is not just any ranch, it is a ranch resort!  City life was long forgotten amongst the horses, cows, goats, chickens, lizards, birds, & crickets 🙂

The first day was a BBQ with live band and dancing. Yee-haw!  I am already missing horseback riding with Jesse the horse! It was a serene day of horse trails along Solvang’s rolling hills.  Our wrangler led the way!

The best part was riding our horses to Adobe Camp for western breakfast, where we were served flap jacks with all the fixings & listened to live music. Home on the range, Clementine! :)))

I especially loved the antiques inside the Adobe!

After a day in the beautiful countryside what could be more relaxing than being Alisal poolside!?

I also caught up on some fun summer reading with Candace Bushnell’s One Fifth Avenue.  I brought a few bios to read as well, but we just didn’t get the time in for them. Loving my new bookmark that one young and talented fashionista made me in her Alisal arts & crafts night! If that is not the sweetest thing ever, I do not know what is!!! Poolside snacks consisted of Alisal’s yummy Mediterranean salad with fresh grilled salmon!   Alisal in Spanish means “Grove of Sycamores,” and dinners in The Sycamore Room were so delish!

Alisal Oatmeal Pie!

I made sure to workout in the resort gym to prepare for our 3 course meals. Haha! Oatmeal pie is Alisal’s creme de la creme dessert!  Made with coconut as well, this pie is definitely palate (plate) cleansing 🙂  They serve oatmeal pie travel size versions for resort guests to take home as well. Yum!!! It was a such a fun trip with everyone!!!  Thank you for everything!!  Wishing all a blessed week! Xoxo ~Kelle

Summer Skin & Beachwear Must Haves!

Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam–170 Nude SPF 16 | Measurable Difference Face & Body Bronzer (Highlighter) by Chrislie
Loreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanner | Obagi Sunscreen SPF 35 | Victoria Secret Instant Bronzing Shimmer | Floral Hat–Kelley Nicole Jewelry Collection | Beach Towel: Versace
The Ultimate Sun Baby Glow: Loreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanner | Obagi Sunscreen SPF 35 | Victoria Secret Instant Bronzing Shimmer
Summer is here, my lovelies! L.A.’s 90 degree heat wave has me thinking all things beach & summer! There will always be a summer event to attend, so first things first! Summer skin & SPF is essential! Currently crushing on Maybelline’s Dream Nude Airfoam foundation.  It has SPF 16 and gives that light & fresh skin-in-a-bottle look!  I love its super thin texture, as I don’t normally wear heavy foundations during the day.  I have raved about Measurable Difference highlighters before, and for good reason.  It makes all the difference! ;)))  I picked up a new Measurable shade last week and it was well worth it!  I have finally discovered my holy grail highlighter in all of life!  It is a light pinky shade with hints of lilac.

Highlight is from one light-handed brush stroke into the Measurable Difference highlighter.

It didn’t come with a shade name, but it is a few shades lighter in color than their “Pink” shade that I also love.  Both are outstanding highlighters! In this pic, the highlight is from one light-handed brush stroke into the product! It can be amped up to kilo-watt status for night. Seriously keeping this highlighter under my pillow.  For sun bronzed skin I love Loreal’s Sublime Self Tanner.  It gives a natural airbrushed effect and sprays like an airbrush with the perfect amount of spritz.  I use it on the daily!  Also, I like to make sure to wear sunscreen high in spf when I’m on the beach. Shimmer bronzer is a must for shoulders & décolletage.  I like Victoria Secret’s Bronzing dust on my shoulders when I’m in a bikini.  For the featured beachwear look, I went with a Michael Kors black bikini with my Kelley Nicole Collection Floral Hat. 

The beach is my absolute favorite place in the world!  For me, there’s nothing like the sound of the ocean, the birds, and a good book. Wishing everyone a great week! xoxo ~Kelle
