I'm just going to say it... I like how I look in swimsuits. I have learned to love my shape over the years - big ol' booty and all! I know that so many people have an issue finding suits that they approve of... but I honestly have an easier time with swimwear than with clothing. I think I look better without clothing on than with, and I also think a LOT of other people do too. It doesn't help that long-torsoed people don't have as many one-piece options either, so bikinis are my easiest choice.

I also know what I don't like in swimwear. I don't like small bikini bottoms that show my buns (I like to keep that skin hidden), I don't like swimwear that hits right at the love-handles and cuts into them, and I don't like tops that aren't supportive enough.

This year I bought a swimsuit online for the second time and it was still a little nerve-wracking. Last year I loved the top I ordered, but the bottoms were too small and they didn't even make a larger size! So back it went... This year I ordered a matching set along with a pair of miss-matched bottoms, and I love all three! I ordered them from the same place as before, ASOS. I felt comfortable because they have free shipping (over $25), free returns, and a billion suits for cheap. I am not being paid or compensated in ANY way from anyone for this post. I seriously just love this website.

I love miss-matched suits. These sets are a little more unexpected than usual, sure to give you a totally unique look! I've classified these by body-type as well, to best accentuate your assets!

green twist top $17| blue triangle top $15 | yellow stripe top $30 | floral top $38
fruity bottoms $30 | tapestry bottoms $30 | seersucker bottoms $34 | black polka dot bottoms $30

cloud top $10 | pink floral top $30 | fruity top $30 | pink polka dot top $32
white bottoms $19 | blue polka dot bottoms $15 | green bottoms $15 | navy ruffle bottoms $13

And what am I sporting this summer?

top | bottom | denim bottoms

One of the reasons I chose this, is that both bottoms will go great with my yellow ruffled & pink gingham tops from Target (years ago) as well as my cute pinup-style suit. Plus, the red set is made by Freya (a bra brand), so I trusted it would hold up the ladies well - it does.

And also, THOSE FAKE POCKETS! I could die they're so cute.

I've been concentrating a lot on my Etsy shop lately. A lot is going on behind the scenes - new products & designs are on their way! And now that it's June, a new freebie will be ready in the next couple of days! Click on the image to visit the shop!

I took a quick (yeah right!) trip to Target today. My first in weeks, I'm so proud of my willpower!

Anyway, as I innocently wandered down the makeup & lotion aisles I grabbed a few products to try out:
- Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream
- L'Oreal True Match LUMI foundation
- and a Maybelline eyeshadow single in Vanilla.

I'm really excited about this lotion! I've heard good things and I tried it out tonight. I'll let you know how I like it and what benefits I see after I've used it for the advertised 5 days.

My current foundation is too dark for me, but the darkest the line comes in (Neutrogena brand) so this is my first try at a light foundation this summer! Let the games begin. I really like the L'Oreal BB Cream I use (review coming later this month), so I have high hopes for this one!

I'm always on the hunt for the BEST cheap white eyeshadow. I haven't tried it out yet, but I'll take it for a spin in the next two days!

My friend and I started 'Whiskey for Breakfast' a couple of years ago to share our love for fun fashion, costumes, beauty, and diy projects. We didn't do the best job of keeping up with the blog...

I've always had so much fun playing with my makeup, dressing in a way that gets a lot of 'I love it, but I wouldn't wear it...'s, and generally injecting a sense of humor into my daily style. Costumes aren't just for Halloween, dramatic makeup isn't just for the evening, and it can be fun to clash a little! If I don't have a project going (clothing, decor, or art), I feel lost!

I love spending time playing with my hair, clothing, and makeup. I am my own life-size doll! Experimentation is everything.

I am also going to embark on a 'beauty safari.' I'm pale, basically translucent. Face makeup, mainly foundation, never seems to match my skin tone. There's not much yellow in my skin, but I have some pink and a lot of freckles. I have acne (more than when I was a teen!) and some big ol' pores I like to cover up. It's time to try until I find the right one! Join me on my journey to find the perfect foundation that won't kill my bank account!
