Layering 101 with Courtney (from As We Stumble Along)

Hey everyone! I'm Courtney-I'm an 18 year old personal style blogger in the Midwest,who's addicted to thrift shopping..and jellyfish.(they're awesome,okay?!). As a beginning blogger,connections are so important. Stephanie was my first real blogging friend,and she offered me the chance to write a post for her blog!(: So here I am today,my post for the day-I hope you like it!(:

So one of my major things for fashion is layering. I loveeee layering! I have a whole different post dedicated to it,and pretty much all my outfits are centered around it. Living in Iowa,two things are evident-a)the winter is very,VERY cold, and bb)the weather flip flops like no other. (in the last two weeks it has been both 80 AND 40 degrees) So layering is ESSENTIAL! But contrary to what you might think,it's not just for the winter! 60 was the high today,but temps varied from times of day and my different classrooms,so I decided on this layered outfit. Here's the 3 steps to it-

Cocoa Brown Tan | Review

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan* / Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs* / Cocoa Brown Tanning Mitt*
 Hey everyone! Today I'm reviewing the much buzzed about, and raved about tan around: Cocoa Brown! (Okay that unintentionally rhymed…call me Dr. Seuss?) But anyways I have seen SO MANY people rave about this tan, that I tweeted them asking if they worked with bloggers outside of the UK/IRE and they do! They were so nice to send me over a few of their favorites to try…and now they've got me hooked.

Usually I'm not one to be bothered to self tan. It usually rubs off when I workout, which is daily to every other day and intensive workouts 1-2 times a week, so putting on fake tan that just comes off with my sweat and leaves me patchy and looking like I have alligator skin is a no go for me.

But you know, (for the sake of blogging I swear!) I had to try this one out. Curiosity got the better of me and I have a feeling this is the only tanning line I will ever use forever. And that's quite a hefty statement to make. After giving this a good go I've fallen so in love with it that I can't imagine trying another tan besides this one.

Okay on to the review part!

Inglot Palette Giveaway! [International]

Hey everyone! Today I'm here with some VERY exciting news! I'm giving away an Inglot palette (quad)! As Inglot is a Polish company and I'm currently attending medical school in Poland (and I'm currently obsessed with Inglot) I thought it would only be fitting to give something away from Inglot! I know Inglot is available in other countries but it is FAR cheaper in Poland so it was also something that I can afford by missing a few meals, instead of not eating for a month! And it's such good quality I like this brand so much more than most others. I have never tried a bad product from them.

I've recently reached a HUGE milestone in my blog, I hit 3,300 followers on bloglovin, and 1,200 on twitter! I meant to do this giveaway at 3,000 followers but the number climbed so quickly, before I could get this giveaway posted I was already at 3,300! (I've been busy with school and tests so I haven't had time to sit down and write a good post!)

Tigi Smoothing Lusterizer | Review

Tigi S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer*
Hey everyone! Today I am here to review a hair product! Gasp! I know…I never really review hair products because nothing  ever really seems to fit the bill. For my hair type, i have wavy to curly dry hair that tangles the second after I comb it out. The hair dressers complain that it takes longer to detangle my hair than to cut it! It's also pretty long, which doesn't help the tangle factor (hits the middle of my back when I leave it in all it's curly glory, so longer if i straighten it…which it definitely is not a fan of. Yes I talk about my hair like it has a mind of it's own because I swear it does)
