Sweetest Pair of Shorts… EVER:)

So you have your flawless Haute Bombshell Airbrushed Tan… Now all you need is the sweetest pair of jean shorts to show the off! Now worries, I got you… there are plenty of options no matter your size. My favorite sites areperfectshorts

*Victoria Secret

*Alloy Apparel 


*Old Navy

That being said there are a lot of cheaper {even tho there are a lot of sales going on now} options. One being thrift stores, you can pick up a couple pair for under $10 and all you need are a pair of scissors and tweezers. There are lots of videos on youtube to look at. I highly recommend watching a few until you find one, where the shorts come out exactly how you want them too. Also, buy a practice pair of jeans… remember practice makes for perfection.

Here are a few tips…

*If you’re buying a pair of shorts from a website, it’s always safer to order a size up.

*Look at the inseam length especially if you’re plus sized… Many of what I hoped to be perfect shorts turned out to be lame cause the inseam was almost nonexistent.

If you’re buying from a thrift store… keep an open mind but remember these couple of things.

*don’t forget to check out what the pockets look like. I’ve accidentally done this and thankfully they only cost $3

*be generous with the length. It’s better to go too long than too short.

Hope this helps Bombshells, if you have any questions feel free to email or message us on Facebook,




Date Night Attire:)

Is there any thing more exciting than going out on a first date? Maybe… LOL but seriously datenightnothing beats the adrenaline rush of meeting new people. Summer time is pretty much the funnest time to go out as well. You don’t have to worry about covering up your body to protect yourself from the elements. Depending on where your date decides to take you, you have several options. However, my favorite go to date is dinner el fresco, under the stars… Start romance off on the right foot.

I’m a girlie girl so I prefer dresses, plus I think my legs are hot sooo it’s always good to show off what you’re most proud of. That being said ladies, keep it classy;) I actually have a dress similar to this one that I love. It’s subtle with just the right amount of lace {mine are on the sleeves} I got it from victoria secrets last summer, it’s cotton so it may look dressy but it’s super comfy to wear.

I’d keep the makeup & hair simple. Work either the eyes or lips but not both. Unless you’re datenightmakeupgoing for pure drama, but first dates should be pretty low key. datenightmakeup2Since you’re both just getting to know each other. Which is another reason to keep the makeup simple, you want him to get to know you not your makeup. I prefer neutral shade, but anything could work here:)


datenighthairHair, again keep it simple. It’s safe, I personally don’t like wearing extensions when out on a date. Heaven forbid they want to go in for a kiss and they can feel your clip-ins while cradling your head. LOL… I seriously freak out about that. Half up/half down is the best of both worlds. I’d also tame it down on the accessories, you want him to get to know YOU.

Haute Bombshells offers these services to get you ready for your special night out:) *Makeup and Hair *Wardrobe Consulting *Airbrushed Tans {we have 2-4hr solutions available}

Toxic Sunscreen… No Bueno

I’m not a big fan of commercial sunscreens. Then again, I’m not a fan of anything with toxic chemicals, especially for my skin. I was born translucent and in the month of July. I also LOVE summer. As a child if I ventured out into the light of day I was royally burned, so I learned to live under towels and usually didn’t go out during the hottest hours. Now, at the ripe old age of 33 {soon to be 34} my skin is perfection. I’ve been told I look 24ish {my heart sang for joy haha}. There are many factors as to why this is. The first being that I didn’t over-bake in the Sun as a teen and I attribute my Stem Cell Transplant to it. Cause let’s be real… My way of living changed a lot once I was diagnosed with MS and subsequently understanding just how important health really is.

loungeBeing in the field I am {beauty & tanning}, skin care is paramount. Being such a health freak, not slathering my body with chemicals is a priority. It’s pretty damn hard in today’s world to avoid these toxic chemicals. Specifically when it comes to the beauty and tanning industries. Do I wear sunscreen. Personally…no I do not. I limit the amount of time I’m in the sun and the time of day. I personally chose to protect my skin by eating certain food groups {plants…duh} and using skin care products that help with the harmful effects of the Sun {which in moderation isn’t “bad”}.

However, I am aware that not everyone agrees with my personal opinions so I have complied a list of sunscreens I would totally use:)

  • Ava Anderson Non-Toxic Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 30+ {ask me about ordering}
  • Badger Baby Sunscreen Cream, Chamomile & Calendula, SPF 30
  • Badger Sport Sunscreen Cream, Unscented, SPF 35
  • California Baby Everyday/Year-Round Sunscreen Stick, SPF 30+
  • COOLA Suncare Sport Moisturizer Classic Sunscreen, Unscented, SPF 45
  • Juice Beauty Oil-Free Moisturizer, SPF 30
  • The Honest Company Sunscreen, SPF 30
  • Suntegrity Skincare 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen, Tinted
  • Suntegrity Skincare Natural Mineral Sunscreen for Body, SPF 30
  • Yes to Carrots Nourishing Daily Moisturizer, Fragrance Free, SPF 15

Dry Brushing

When I heard that dry skin brushing was an effective method for reducing cellulite, I knew we had to include it on the Haute Bombshell blog. Sure enough, it was indeed one of the more successful ways to smooth away less-than-perfect spots on your body. But the more I looked into it, the more benefits I learned about this DRYBRUSHINGrelatively simple routine had to offer. Not only does it buff away dead skin, but it’s fantastic at boosting circulation and lymphatic drainage, and ultimately ridding the body of toxins. Your skin is your biggest organ after all.

The method itself is incredibly easy and only takes minutes, but there are a few guidelines to keep in mind, including the type of brush and the direction you move it. Below, four things you need to know about dry skin brushing.

How often: Dry skin brushing effectively opens up the pores on your skin. This is something you can — and should — be doing daily, even twice a day and at least 3x a week. Your skin should be dry, so the ideal time is in the shower before you turn on the water. Just a reminder, don’t get the brush wet.

Direction: You should only brush towards the heart. Making long sweeps, avoid back and forth, scrubbing and circular motions. Start at your feet, moving up the legs on both sides, then work from the arms toward your chest. On your stomach, direct the brush counterclockwise. And, don’t brush too hard: Skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red.

Choosing A Brush

Start off with a natural bristle brush stay away from loofahs. Look for boar bristles or fibers from plants, synthetic bristles can be too harsh and cause irritation. One that either fits in the palm of your hand or has a shorter handle which will give you more control.  It is best to go into a store and feel the bristles so that you can find bristles that best suits your taste.

The Dry Brushing Process

  1. Start with your feet, moving in soft circular movements (always moving towards the heart) first on the bottom of the feet, and then on the top.
  2. Work up each leg, one at a time, first the back of the leg (using the same soft circular, always towards the heart, movements) up through the buttock and then the front of the leg.  Avoid any delicate skin, like the skin on the insides of the thighs.
  3. After you are finished with the lower half, start at the fingertips of one arm; move up the arm (palms of hands, back of hands, forearm, bicep) and towards the heart.  Repeat on other arm.
  4. Move to the back (this is where a short handled brush may come in handy) working your movements towards your stomach, starting and finishing with one side of the back and then the other. This FEELS AMAZING
  5. When you get to your stomach, start at your lower abdomen and work your way up (make sure to steer clear of delicate areas like the nipples) and end at your chest in an upward stroke.
  6. Rinse off and shower as normal.

Skin brushing Tips

  • Avoid the face! While dry brushing is excellent for exfoliating skin, this body brush will be too rough for the delicate skin on your face.
  • It’s sometimes best to dry brush right before you shower since there may be a lot of dead skin brushed off.
  • Use a lukewarm water temp…hot water would just irritate your delicate skin. (DUH)
  • Try using a natural and organic body soap since the pores in your skin are open and clear.  I use and have become slightly addicted to the body care products at Honestly Inspired. 
  • Honestly Inspired also has sugar scubs good enough to eat:)
  • However, it isn’t necessary to use soap to wash up in the shower or bath after dry brushing; your skin is as clean as it can be.
  • This is perfect to do the day before your receiving your  Bombshell Airbrush Tan!

After getting out of the shower, dry off vigorously and massage your skin with pure plant oil, such as almond, jojoba, grapeseed or coconut!

Keep it Haute, Bombshells!
