Get Your Glow On
Thursday, October 30, 2014 0 Comments Images

Okay you guys, today's post is all about getting your tan on.  I love to have a good glow but it has to look natural or it drives me crazy.  I have used a ton of products and I LOVE, and I mean love, the Belletto tanning towel.  It is seriously the quickest and cleanest way for me to get a good tan.  I have found the tan to last about 10 days and I would say that's pretty dang good, and it also fades nicely which is always a plus.  Check out my tutorial and you can see how it works and all the details, hope you enjoy!
p.s. Use code "GLAMCARA" at checkout to get the Endless Summer set for $35.  The set includes 2 tanning towels plus + 4 liquid silk lip glosses.  It's originally valued at $62!

Those Days
Thursday, October 30, 2014 16 Comments Images

Sometimes there are days that are packed full of things from beginning to end, and I have no extra time to fuss over an outfit. I believe those days are perfect for umpsuits. It's one simple piece and really easy to throw on and pair with just about anything, from a blazer, to a relaxed cardigan as shown.  To be honest, I feel like I am kind of a jumpsuit collector and I immediately knew I had to add this one to the collection. What's your take on jumpsuit? Are you willing to give them a try or do you pass? Thanks everyone and happy Thursday!

Well, we just arrived back home from New York and I am already missing it a little bit.  Don't get me wrong, I am beyond thrilled to be back in my own house, but I was really loving the New York vibe.  I have to begin by saying that I am blessed with the best little traveling dudes ever.  I always stress before each trip we go on, but they surprise me every time with how good they are.  I went for a fun project with Tarte Cosmetics that you guys will hear about soon....I can't wait!  But like I was saying, I have a little place in my heart that wished I lived in New York.  Yes, it is an insane, crazy, and super fast pace, but it is so inspiring and motivating.  It makes me feel like I could accomplish anything and everything......and the shopping is pretty dang amazing.  Who knows, it would take something really, and I mean REALLY big for me to leave Utah and my family here, but I would always consider New York.

Keep it Sleek

I'm laying here in my hotel room beyond exhausted from spending the day exploring NYC with my boys, so this one is going to be a quick one.  I wore this look last week before leaving town and I have to say, this is one of my favorite looks.  I know it is so simple, but that's what I love about it. I hope you have an awesome Monday, love you guys!

Looking Back

When I saw that Virgos Lounge had this dress in black, I knew it was fate.  I have had a couple different dresses from Virgos Lounge and every one is simply impeccable.  This dress is one that I will keep forever and pull out for those special occasions.  I wish I would have known about Virgos Lounge when I was getting married because their dresses would have been perfect for bridesmaids. I don't really know how weddings got brought into this, but does anyone else ever think about their wedding and wonder what you would do different now?  Mine was 5 years ago and I already think I would have changed things.  Don't get me wrong...I still love it and all the memories I have, there are just so many ideas out there now.  To be honest, I think I would be a little overwhelmed trying to plan a wedding now.  Anyway, I would have totally used these Virgos Lounge dresses if I could go back.  Is anyone else with me on this?

The Perfect Fit
Wednesday, October 22, 2014 13 Comments Images

I am so excited that Fall has arrived because it means boots, jackets, and my favorite....layering. I love this dress, and I am loving it even more with this leather jacket.  This dress will be one I will go back to when spring comes along as well because it would be perfect with strappy sandals.  The fit of this dress is actually my favorite.  I feel like it's hot without having to be hot.....if that makes sense?  I usually don't use that word to describe an outfit, but what girl doesn't want to feel hot every now and then?  I mean I still like feeling cute for my hubby, and I think that's a good thing.  Anyways, do any of you agree with me, or am I just getting on one of my little rants again?
This fabulous dress I am rambling on about is from The Coverii, and they have a ton of gorgeous pieces.  I have a few different pieces from them and every one is amazing quality, and a piece I will wear over and over again.  Make sure to check out The Coverii, you won't be disappointed!
p.s. The Coverii is giving all Cara Loren followers 20% off with code "caraloren", so happy shopping!

I am so excited to show you this post because I am so in love with this camera bag from Jo Totes!  I mean it looks like a pretty fabulous purse right!?  That is my favorite part about it, I love that I don't look like I'm hauling around my camera in an ugly case.  It fits my camera body and a lens, along with a few purse essentials which I always need.  It's all padded inside and comes with padded dividers as well, so the camera and lens are both well protected.  On a side not it's an awesome diaper bag as well with the dividers......that stuff is just always on my mind.  I wish you could hold the bag and see the actual leather because it is stunning, honestly I didn't think a camera bag could be so cool! Have a great Tuesday, love you all!
