Look What I Got: I'm Back!



After spending ten days in Ibizia, I am back...and jetlagged.  So, all you get is this postcard-esque pic today.  I'll be back tomorrow (or perhaps next week) with your regularly scheduled outfits and sarcasm.

Favorite Fashion Friday #64

Well, since I am still on vacation, I was unsure if I would get a chance to pick out a fav outfit for this week.  I'll pick 2 next week.  I promise!  So, instead, here's a picture of my cat.  He's pretty fashionable.

Look What I Got: Spray Tan Giveaway!


versaspa giveaway
Do you notice something different in my pictures?  Maybe my skin tone?  Maybe I am not so transparent?  I did the most Jersey thing I have ever done...I got a spray tan.  And I loved it. Now you can get one too!

If you've been around this blog, you can tell from my vampire-esque skin tone that I can not spend too much time in the sun.  Therefore, I also can not and do not tan.  Like any normal person I hate sunburn and skin cancer, so I wear a thick layer of SPF 9,000 and try to limit my time out in the sun during the summer months.  And I had never tried a spray tan because, well, I just don't like Snooki's look.  (Was that reference too dated?)  I also figured it would be sticky and weird.  For some reason I imagined spray tanning was like getting sprayed with a thin layer of grape jelly.  Welp, I was wrong.

I went in spray tanned in a Versa Spa.  And this thing is high tech.  (I really hope the prophecies of Terminator don't come true or computers don't become sentient.  Because this thing would mess some stuff up).  It was sooo super easy.  I showed up with a bathing suit under my clothes, stepped into the room, put on a shower cap, applied barrier cream to my hands and feet, and stepped into the spa.  Once you press the on button...the magic happens.  This thing talks you through the whole process.  You get sprayed on all four sides.  There are handy diagrams in the machine showing you how to stand.  And then you get blow dried.  Afterwards, just try not to sweat for a few hours and don't shower.  I was able to go about my normal day.  I wasn't sticky, I didn't smell, and I didn't even stain my car seat.

I did, however, make some rookie mistakes.  First, I did not apply enough barrier cream to my hands and feet.  the barrier cream prevent as much spray tan from getting on certain areas.  Because I am so light skinned, my hands and feet were a little speckly and then the spay tan settled in the wrinkles.  Second, I did not wipe off excess spay from my hands and feet.  Again, the spray just sat in my wrinkles.  Lastly, this dumb dumb left her bikini neck strap up, result in weird lines on my chest.

Will I go again?  Hell yes!  I felt great afterwards.  I thought it looked really natural.  The light setting was perfect for me.  I am planning on getting sprayed for an friend's upcoming wedding...and possibly for my own!

And now you can be the judge.  Sunless, Inc is giving the chance for one lucky reader to win a VersaSpa spray tan! (check the VersaSpa locations to find one near you).

In My Rocks Box Lately

Sign up for Rocks Box here and receive a free month of service!
August 14 Rocks Box
Carina Necklace: Loren Hope ($132) (purchase here): I considered this the holy grail of necklaces.  So, I kept it.  I know, this is a MUCH more expensive item then I normally purchase, but I did get the 20% off from Rocks Box, and I had some credits saved up.  However, I have been wearing the crap out of this necklace (here), and I've been selling a lot of clothes on Instagram.  So, I felt like I owed it to myself.

Lulu Pyramid Bracelet: Gorjana ($48) (purchase here):  I really loved this delicate bracelet.  It was perfect to wear with a stack or on it's own with a simple outfit that doesn't call for a plethora of bracelets (yes, those outfits exist for me).

Gum Drop Earrings: Urban Gem ($25): I loved this earrings.  Loved, loved, loved!  They were the perfect everyday studs....however, I already have a pair of everyday studs.  So, I pried this out of my hand and put them back in the box.

September 14 Rocks Box
Deco Pendent Necklace: Juliet & Co. ($60): I loved the style of this pendent.  It was right up my alley: sparkly and vintage-inspired.  The only problem was that the inner chain was too short and choked me when I put it on.  It also looked like a dog collar.  Pretty much that second chain ruined this necklace.  When will designers learn to keep it simple.

Alexander Multi-Gem Earrings: Urban Gem ($36): These were so gorgeous and, surprisingly light.  However, I had no wear to wear these (and an already huge pile of statement earrings that don't get out much).

Mae Shimmer Solitaire Ring Set: Gorjana ($38) (purchase here): I wore these rings everyday that I had them.  They were the perfect little pop and matched everything.  The went with casual jeans, work appropriate pencil skirts, and out to dinner dresses. And I learned that when you stop buying your jewelry at Forever 21, you stop getting green fingers.  Amazing.  However, I restrained from keeping them because I went crazy with last month's box and that necklace.

Where in the World is Penniless Socialite?

350px-Worldcast

Ladies and gentleman, I have left the country.  I have (hopefully) by now made my way to the land of Justin Bieber punches, Ibiza.  If not, I am sitting in an airport in Frankfort crying.  (Yes, we had to fly via Germany....it's a loooong story).

Anyways...have no fear, I have all of my posts scheduled for you this week...including the link ups!  I'll be back October 1st, but I'll be checking in every so often because we will actually have wireless internet.  Yes, we are so wealthy and fancy.  But, seriously, this is my first vacation ever where the hotel has wireless internet.

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram to keep up with my international adventures!
