L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanner Review

I'm a sucker for buying different self-tanners although I usually try and stay away from drugstore self-tanners because they tend to be orange-y and streaky, leaving me looking like I have a skin disease. *note: I have had the same experience with some high-end brands as well! I'd heard lots of good things about L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanner and decided to try it. I am so impressed with how easy is is to apply: you can see the gel go on as it is already a bronze-y color. After a couple hours I had a very even tan that looked more like I had been out in the sun {brown} rather than slathering myself with a self-tanner {orange}. It has been 3 days since I've applied the tanner and it still looks great with no splotchy-ness. One downside: I got a really bad breakout on my chin, which could be attributed to something else (I'm thinking maybe constant diet coke consumption if not the self-tanner). I normally have clear skin and rarely break out. My word of advice to anyone who tries it is not to use it on your face just in case.
What is your favorite self tanner? Do you usually apply it to your face?

Interior Design: Carrie and Big's Apartment in Sex and the City 2

In Sex and The City 2, Carrie proclaims that she's been "cheating on fashion for furniture", which is apparent in her and Big's NYC apartment in the sequel. I fell in love with every room and admire the use of several different textures, patterns, and colors.
Onto the tour...

Up next...I will be doing a "where to buy" and "look for less" for several pieces in the apartment, stay tuned!
