A Few Fun Things

Grace has been wearing these fun sandals all summer

Today’s post is a quick little guy, just wanted to share a few fun things (three, to be exact) that I am absolutely loving right now!

A Few Fun Things:

Rainbow Slides

If you know me, then you know that I basically just want to rainbow up my whole life. Rainbow bikinis and rainbow jewelry and rainbow sweaters and now rainbow slides! Figue gifted me these rainbow sequin sandals and I could not love them more. They put an instant pep in my step and are absolutely perfect with cutoffs and a cute blouse. They also remind me of my rainbow post for pride celebration.

They’re on sale in a few sizes here, too!

An item Grace loves right now are these self-tanner drops

Self Tanning Drops

I am completely, utterly obsessed with these organic self-tanning drops from Isle of Paradise! I mix a few drops in with my moisturizer 2-3x a week depending on how pale I’m looking. (Someone asked how long the tan lasts and it really depends on what I do to my skin… retinol, vitamin C, and toner all definitely exfoliate so generally two to three times a week is the perfect amount.) I use the medium and it gives you the PERFECT sun kissed glow. Obsessed. Someone asked how they compare to the Drunk Elephant bronzing drops and the answer is that they’re totally different products. These will self tan you, whereas the Drunk Elephant drops are bronzing so they’re more like makeup – any color will wash off afterward. (I still use those too but wanted to find a good self-tanner!)

Updated to add as I’ve gotten a couple questions – I use these for face, not body. Still trying to find a clean(ish) self-tanner for body that I really love.

Fun thing number 3 are these knock-off sunglasses

The Amazon Sunglasses

When Hitha shared these Celine lookalikes on Instagram I was all in and ordered a few different pairs. I’m generally not a knockoff person BUT I have lost several pairs of Celine sunglasses over the years and just can’t deal with the heartbreak anymore! I have been wearing these quite a bit (if you follow my Instagram stories you know) and highly recommend them. (While you are there, grab my favorite $30 mumu too..  I just got another color!)

    I saw you didn’t love the coola self tanner, the Isle one worked really well for me! I even used it before my wedding in May and it gave me a nice natural bronze.

    Hi! What moisturizer do you use with the tanning drops? And do you use a glove? I used the body shop body yogurt which the brand suggested and it came out really streaky! I think it’s totally user error on my part though!

    The slides and sunglasses are so cute, adding the sunnies to my cart now

      It depends what moisturizer I’m using! So far it’s mixed well with Dr. Bader, Skin Food, and the Beautycounter Countertime one. That’s what I love – that you can use it with whatever moisturizer you choose.

      And no I don’t use a glove! I just wash my hands after.

      (I also should note that I use these for face, not body!)

  3. Those rainbow sandals are cute – they really cute you, Grace! Reminds me of all the rainbow dresses you’ve been wearing lately. 🙂

    I use the Isle of Paradise tanning mousse on my body and love it! The mitt helps prevent streaks, too. x

    Just got the Isle of Paradise drops this week and really like them! Thanks for the recommendation 🙂

    Have you used the Isle of Paradise Tanning Water? It’s to use for your body. I love the face drops and really like the tanning water too.

    • I haven’t yet, but they sent me some after I talked about their drops! I’m excited to try it.

    Yes the Isle of Paradise drops are the best! I have the light and mix 6 drops in with my body lotion and gives such a nice, natural-looking glow! I haven’t used it for my face yet though – glad to see you have and are having success! Love those sunglasses too 🙂
