Inside Out 

10 Jun

Aloha from Maui! This is my first ever swimwear shoot, so I’m a little nervous about putting this out into the blog-o-sphere. But, that changes today. After all, this is a fashion, travel, and lifestyle blog…so that includes swimwear.

But first, I want to take a moment to talk about body image. No one is perfect and we all have insecurities. I challenge you to speak positive words about yourself and others. View imperfections as the special traits that make someone unique and beautiful. It is important to learn to love yourself and others, inside and out. 

Our “Instagram culture” can place so much pressure to look picture perfect. This should not define you. It can suck the happiness right out of you and it isn’t reality. Life is not all about external appearances and filters. It is about who you are inside. You are Instagram perfect. You are a beautiful version of YOU. 

Ok, now about that swim style! The belle sleeves we’ve been seeing on tops and dresses, have made their way to coverups. I am kind of obsessed. You’ll find me wearing this coverup all summer long.

This ultra cool bikini is reversible (two in one!). The detailed back and seashells attached to the strings are super fun. And these Sam Edelman studded sandals go with anything: swimwear, maxi dresses, shorts, rompers, etc. Update your gladiator sandals with a studded version. Super versatile! 

Confidence and positivity is important no matter your shape or size. And so is a great swimsuit. So wear it all with a smile. Aloha!

SB Beauty Chronicles: Lash Extensions

9 May

SB is starting a new monthly beauty feature! Let’s face it (no pun intended), we can all use a little beauty pick me up, every once in a while. This month’s feature is all about lashes. Wink wink. 

Whether you like to hit the snooze button or just want more freedom to work out, make breakfast, meditate, or spend time with your family, I think we would all like to have some extra time in the morning. 

I’ve recently discovered a solution and one major way to cut down on your morning routine – lash extensions. I’ve always been “skeptical” about any type of extensions, because I had so many questions. But, I decided to take the plunge, try them out, and share my experience with all of you. 

It was relaxing, painless, and they are a dream. Check out my results, before & after photos, and FAQs:

Will extensions damage my natural lashes?
No. If you are going to a reputable salon and a skilled technician, your natural lashes will be perfectly fine.

How long do the extensions last?
About a month or two (then you can get “fills” as needed). 

Can I wear eyeliner/ mascara?
The BEST part about having lash extensions is that you don’t need to wear any. Your lashes are full enough to create the look of natural eyeliner. And no mascara is needed with those gorgeous full lashes. 

How long does the initial application take?
About 2 hours, which means you can put down your phone and relax!

How much do they cost?
A high quality, full set of lashes is typically around $300. But, Dolce Blu is doing a special for all Style Beacon followers for only $129. Just mention STYLE BEACON when booking your appointment. 

Will I be sad when they are gone?
Maybe. JK! If you decide to forgo any fills, they will eventually fall off naturally. But, during the time that you have the extensions, you can use Latisse, RevitaLash, Lash Boots, etc. That way, your natural lashes will have some extra volume when the time comes to part with your extensions.

Let me know if you would like to see more SB Beauty Chronicles or have any other questions about my experience!
