Extra Extra… Read All About It: The Skinny Confidential Lifestyle Guide

The Fashion Bite Katie Roof The Skinny Confidential Lauryn Evarts Lifestyle Guide Book

Soooo… my friend Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential wrote a book. Ya, like as in she’s a published author. I know, I know, I am beyond proud. I about fainted when I saw it on the shelves at Barnes & Noble… when I came to I proceeded to tell everyone in the store… “That’s my friieeennnnddd!!!” #braggingrights

I can’t imagine what a huge undertaking it is to write a book. It’s like giving birth to a child. I know she poured her heart and soul into this and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this baby. The second I got it I whipped myself up a fresh green juice, set aside a few hours sans computer ( shocking ), and totally devoured this little gem… cover to cover.

Anyhow… If you don’t already have it, lemme tell you you’re missing out big time. Lauryn is seriously a walking, talking encyclopedia of anything and everything health, food, fashion, and fitness. Like, she’s got all that sh*t down to a science… literally.

So, what will you find in this book…? Amazing pics, healthy and EASY recipes, the low-down on juicing and cleansing, workout tips, beauty must-haves, tons of time-savers, relationship advice ( cuz nobody likes “love chub” ← ew ) , and so so so much more.

Do yourself a fav and run to your nearest B&N. If you’re a hermit like me you can hit up amazon, or download the ebook on iBooks. I’m dying to know what you think… but I already know you’ll love it!!

DIY Dreamcatcher Collab

Hey babes… we’re back for collab number 2! Blogger babes Erica of Fashionlush, Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential, and myself will be teaming up each month to bring you a super cute and creative DIY project. So fun!

We’re all totally obsessed with dreamcatchers. I mean, who isn’t. I love adding to my dreamcatcher collection, the more the merrier, right? Dreamcatchers are said to protect the sleeping from bad dreams while letting the good ones through. Sooo… in my mind more dream catchers mean less bad dreams and more dreams coming true ( which BTW they totally are ). I’m pretty sure making your own dreamcatcher makes your dreams come true even faster… so get on it!

1) Wrap your hoop with the suede lacing. Begin by securing one end of the suede to your hoop with a clothes pin so that you can get the right tension. Wrap hoop completely and finish with superglue. Choose a hoop the desired size of your dreamcatcher. If you are making multiples, mix up the size!

2) Time to string it up. Tie your waxed thread around the hoop and between the suede ( ya know, the little cracks where the suede meets up ). Create a web-like pattern by stringing along the outside of the hoop and working your way in, connecting the strings as you go along. This part can get a little confusing. If you need a little extra help check out this site. Remember not to leave too much tension or it will look sloppy.

3) Add your feathers. Gather a few feathers, 3 – 4. Tie one end of suede around the ends of your feather and the other around the bottom of your hoop. Mix up the lengths of your suede so that your feathers all hang at different levels. Repeat, repeat, repeat. The good dreams are said to glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below, aka you!
