Faux tans + a Giveaway

With cold weather days upon us I have decided to giveaway this adorable scarf. I have the same one in a different color and they are actually softer than you think and I think they are so cute! Just follow my blog and comment below and you will be entered!
On another note, I have tried so many different self-tanners over my lifetime and have finally settled on the best ones that work for me. I have being so white in the winter and I also don't want to age my skin by going to tanning beds. My favorites right now are the airbrush tanners. I have used both FakeBake and Sally Hansen and they both work great. Right now I have the FakeBake brand and when I first used it I was worried because it wasn't blending in as well as I thought it should. However, if you put it on before bed and shower in the morning it all blends in and I have never had any streaks with it.

Banana Peet Teeth Whitening

I swear this really works! Just rub the inside of the peel on your teeth and let sit for five minutes then rinse off. After a few times I really noticed a difference!

Milk Bath

2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup corn starch
1/4 cup baking soda 
any essential oil mixture

1. Combine ingredients in a dark bowl and whisk ingredients together until there are no bumps. (if you used a jar it says to put cap on and shake until bumps are gone)

2. Add essential oils. I used about 15 drops total (I did lavender and lemon).. you can do more or less, it wont make a difference! If you used a bowl you will now cover it in foil. If you used a jar, keep the lid on.

3. Put in a cool dark place for roughly 24 hours. 

4. Fill up bath about 3/4 of the way you usually do and add mixture!
