Let’s be honest, people. I define nightmare dressed like a daydream. I pretty much just gallivanted around in my bathing suits (which are pretty fab if I may say so) during this week’s episodes. But here are the items you saw on Bachelor in Paradise Week 2 that I feel are worth sharing…
I got this colorful woven crop on sale at Urban Outfitters over a year ago. It only looks appropriate in a tropical setting. I may just be posting this because it’s a cute picture.
“I even wore nude lipstick so he wouldn’t be afraid to kiss me!” Is that the exact quote? In case you weren’t aware, red lipstick freaks out some guys because they don’t want to smear it all over your face or theirs while kissing you. Red lipstick basically says don’t touch me and I definitely didn’t want to put that message out there. So I wore my new fave Anastasia’s Liquid Lipstick in Milk Shake. It’s a light pink/nude, very kissable shade. It’s also super matte. My makeup in general was so on fleek the night Jared asked Clare on the bungee jumping date. It was so unfortunate I had to mess it up by crying.
“She’s like a child in a woman’s body.” I’ve gotta say, Kirk was pretty on point with that comment. The day I was wearing this bluish/purple high-waisted suit from Forever 21, I felt particularly liberated. Jared was off on his date with Clare and I knew everything was out of my control for a few hours and I had no one to impress so I literally played in the ocean with Jonathan and JJ. I sort of joked that I wore a high waisted suit when Jared wasn’t around because I have heard that guys think these are anti-sexy. However, this suit, the cheapest swimsuit I brought to Paradise, was my most complimented. The guys loved it, especially “my Kanye” Jonathan. You’re most likely to find this hanging on an end of season sale rack at your nearest Forever.
Shout out to Victoria’s Secret’s Bombshell Bra for adding two cup sizes to my small B-cup boobs. Although it may have looked like it in this top, I’m not one of those girls “running around with their fake boobies.” (HAHA, oh Lauren.)
It was no coincidence I was completely done up when Jared and Clare came back from their date. I had to have “revenge face,” right? I was able to achieve this Kardashian cheekbone highlight thanks to Becca Cosmetic’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal.
I’m truly in love with this Notebook-esque, 40s-style swimsuit combo I created. The black bottoms are from American Apparel and the top is actually a bralet that I got from Victoria’s Secret on sale about 5 years ago and had never worn before. I just wanted for someone to be like, “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.” But yaaa not there yet…sooooo I just peed in the ocean instead. Everyone does it!
Thanks for the love this season Bachelor Nation! I’m always looking for blog ideas, so suggest away! But first, please use the search box to see if I’ve already written about your topic.
As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.
In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.
Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
