Keeping Your Summer Tan

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Keeping Your Summer Tan

Can it just stay this warm and sunny out forever??

Today I'm sharing with you my favorite products that will help you hold onto your summer tan as long as possible. When I become so busy with going from class to class, going out to eat, or hanging out with friends in the library, I am barely ever outside getting some sun on my face. Also, where I go to school, we basically have 3 weeks of fall before it turns to winter so trying to stay a natural bronze is practically impossible.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Colour Pop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatches

Raise your hand if you love liquid lipstick!

I certainly do, I hopped on that trend train veryyyy quickly. The tricky thing about liquid lipsticks though is that they always look different applied than they do online or even in the store. I know they all come in clear tubes, but when they dry on your lips, they always because four shades darker or three shades lighter. I find this so frustrating because a lot of liquid lipsticks have a pretty price tag so if you don't like the one you purchased, you're out of luck. This is where ColourPop comes in so so clutch. ColoupPop Ultra Matte Lips are $6 a piece, so you can try five for the price of one Kylie Lip Kit! When I discovered these, I went a little crazy (as you can see), but now that I've had the chance to wear all of them I wanted to let you know my opinions and comparisons to some other liquid lipsticks I've tried.

Summer Bohemian

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Bell Sleeves, Animal Print, and Fringe Booties

Hello friends!

I think this may be one of the very last, if not the last, photoshoot I had taken with my blonde hair! I can't wait to show you guys what I look like now, but I wanted to finish out the posts for the summer all in blonde because my new hair has a very fall/wintery look to it. On the day I wore this outfit, my boyfriend and I had gotten all dressed up in fun outfits and were heading to this little pop up carnival in my hometown to take pictures. It was about 101 degrees out and we walked probably a mile and a half both ways getting there and back, only to find that the carnival was all gone when we arrived! Instead there was a farmers market, but we were dying in the heat and didn't want to carry any massive vegetables with us on our way home. At least we managed to get some cute pictures!

DIY Adidas Sneakers with Patches

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | DIY Adidas Sneakers with Patches

Who’s ready for back to school?!

I know I promised you guys some DIYs that you'll actually wear, so here's the first one! I wear sneakers basically every single day at school when I'm not wearng boots or booties. It just makes so much sense because you're walking all around campus all day every day and sneakers support your feet while keeping them comfortable. I remember freshman year when I tried to wear Jack Rogers and ballet flats all the time, and some people can do that (good for them!) but not me. Since I wear sneakers so often, I wanted a pair that no one else would have which is very difficult to do at a big school. I decided to embellish these black Adidas Superstars with some patches I found on Etsy, take a look at how they turned out!

Weekend at the Lake

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | WET Swimwear Bikini at Lake George

Today, I’m freaking out.

Today is my last Monday going to work and really the last true Monday of my #SummerSixteen (I know that was lame but I like the alliteration haha). I will be at home still next Monday, but I'm not counting it because on Tuesday I head up to school so the day before will be filled with organizing, packing, and planning. I am so so excited to go back to school, but it's a weird feeling going back as a senior. I think I'm ready for it?...I think? Half of me wants nothing more than to have already landed a job and be starting out my life in the real world, but the other half of me still feels like freshman year was yesterday and can't believe I'm almost done with the best four years of my life!

Anyway.......

Here are some photographs from my weekend trip to Lake George a little while back! The weather was beautiful but only for a little while and after we spent this morning on our boat, we had to hurry up and get changed to go the the horse races in Saratoga.

#1 Dorm Essential

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | 7th Heaven Face Masks #DormEssentials

Hi guys!

Tonight has been the best night so far! I have a long weekend coming up so I've been pampering, cosmetic shopping, and all kinds of fun stuff! I actually dyed my hair black tonight! Yes, you heard that right...BLACK! Right after, I went to Ulta and picked up the NYX version of Dip Brow to match my new hair color. I was a little disappointed because I wanted to get my brows tinted and groomed, but I was turned down at the Benefit Brow Bar because their only brow lady was out for the day. It all ended up working out though because when I got home I used the leftover dye from my hair and an unused spoolie to feather some into my brows... and they turned out fabulous! (I also saved $33!!) To finish out a wonderful evening, I applied one of my new favorite masks that can also be found at Ulta!!

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Pink is my favorite color!

But...I pretty much only wear blacks and neutrals. Every now and then, I find an awesome pink piece that I can add to my wardrobe for flare, but that's about it for color for me haha. With fall coming up, I wanted to show off this end of summer date night outfit because I don't know when the next time I will be able to wear something like this will be, so enjoy!
