She may live in Tennessee, but Kathryn Cunningham has the eye of an über-chic New Yorker. Her blog, Sweet Tea & Champagne, is a testament to her great taste and it quickly won us over with its great mix of fashion, style, and beauty. This week, she’s guest blogging for us and sharing everything from DIY tricks to her recent recipes obsessions.

Don’t get me wrong, I love cool weather. No, not sub-arctic temperatures, but after a hot summer, it’s nice to start layering on sweaters and jackets. But inevitably, the one thing I always miss about the warmer months is the effortless sun-kissed look that you get from spending your days on the beach, lake, or by the pool. That’s why I’ve come up with some of my favorite sunless (a.k.a. anti-tanning bed) self-tanners.
The moment you start reading Alex Yeske’s dreams + jeans blog, you know one thing for sure: the girl has excellent taste. Musing on everything from fashion to beauty to design, the recent Syracuse grad has a knack for spotting pretty things — a skill that no doubt serves her well in her day job as a graphic designer for Madewell. This week, we’re lucky enough to have her guest blogging for us about everything from her beauty must-haves to how to get the perfect blow dry.
Who doesn’t love getting product recommendations from friends? I asked a few fellow bloggers that I know well to recommend some of their favorite products.
Kathryn of Sweet Tea and Champagne: I love St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse because it’s so easy to apply and you get that instant fresh-off-the-island glow.
Mackenzie of Design Darling: I always thought that as a redhead, I couldn’t rock a red lip, but I gave it a go this summer and I’m suddenly smitten. Pair NARS’ matte lipstick in Jungle Red with dewy skin and a dash of black mascara — it’s attention-getting for all the right reasons!
Molly of A Piece of Toast: My only makeup essential that has not changed since I was a sophomore in high school is my Shu Uemura eyelash curler. I truly cannot live without it. I first put on my mascara (a rotation of cheapies from Target) and then use this curler, and I seriously feel like a movie star!
