It's time for BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!  A few questions we answer in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy and paste to your own blog if you wish.  Enjoy!!

1.  Let's stick with the pictures/exercise and shoe topic 
and post a picture of (or describe) your work out shoes.

I got these shoes a few months ago and I love them!  They are really comfy and they have a lot of cushion.  My feet are really narrow and I have really high arches so these work great for me.  I went to a store called RunOn! where they help you choose the right shoes for you by what kind of exercise you will be doing and they actually watch you walk to find just the right pair.  It was really cool and I've been so happy with them.  

2.  Again with the summer/hot theme of the week....what does your current swimsuit look like?

I recently bought this swimsuit online from Forever21 and I love it!  I wasn't sure how it would fit because I bought it online and swimsuits never fit, but its perfect and looks as cute as a bathing suit can look.  It has lots of support up top which is great!  I also have a plain black one too, but the this one has been my go to swimsuit for the summer.

3.  Do you lay out, fake bake, sunless spray tan or use tanning lotion?

I am so white.  I am just resigned to the fact that I am not going to tan and pretty much gave up trying.  All I do is burn, peel, and then get white again.  I can get darker but it takes a lot of work.  Since I have so many freckles and my skin is so pale, it's really bad for me to try and tan.  I have however been using the Jergens Natural Glow.  I love this stuff because it makes me look tan and doesn't look fake since it develops over time.  They also have a firming formula that is supposed to firm your skin.  Hopefully this will help to not have as much loose skin as well.  We'll see, but so far I am loving it!

4.  Describe your week in blogland and in real life.

This has been a great week! Still feeling tons of love from blogland and real life has been really good!  I'm about to post my weekly update so stay tuned for all of the details!


  1. That swimsuit is soooo freaking cute!! And LOVE those shoes too! Thanks for doing BYOC!

  2. I was totally going to go buy that bathing suit but I guess they don't carry it anymore! Total bummer! And does that Jergens stuff ever make you splotchy?

  3. I spit out my water when you said "naturally white". All I could think of was my son. I swear as soon as he walks out the door he burns. It's so sad, because that child needs some sun bad. LOL

    Love the swimsuit. I guess I will hit up Torrid this weekend and look for a suit.

  4. I use the Jergen's too. I love it. I'm naturally white too. There are 2 shades of me white and red!

  5. That suit is so darn cute!! Absolutely love it. I really would like to use the jergens glow lotion but I absolutely hate the smell. : ( I wish I liked it because I think it would be the perfect answer for me. I am super white burn peel like you. : (

  6. I burn within 5 minutes of being in the sun! I have resigned myself to being pale forever, but maybe I should actually try the Jergens...

  7. I love the suit - very sailor. And thanks for the Jergen's review, I was wanting to try it, but wasn't sure if it'd look too fake. :)
