Itsy Bitsy Bettinis

In Fashion, Travel on July 28, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Fact or Ficton: Full size bikini bottoms make your tush look bigger. Fact. After years of painfully dealing with “dumpy butt” bathing suits, I realized that smaller bikini bottoms actually make your gluteus maximus look better (even if its not perfect). Brazilian cut bikinis became my new best friend but unfortunately, I only found bikinis I loved in Hawaii. Until recently…

Aloha Bettinis. No longer do I have to scour through racks of bathing suits to find bikini bottoms that flatter me. Bettinis Bikinis are perfectly cut, uber-soft bikinis built with comfortable elastic and adorable lace lining. These bikinis are so amazing that Sports Illustrated featured them in their famed Swimsuit issue (February 2010) on none other than the supermodel Bar Refaeli. Miss Refaeli rocked the “itsy” bikini which is…itsy. Bless her perfect tush.

Your summer hasn’t started until you’ve strutted your stuff in these amazing Bettinis!

Cost: $64.00+ per piece

Hate the look and feel of dry, flaky lips? Me too. Nothing is worse than applying lipstick and seeing it glide on like butter on gravel.

Cleverly named The Lip Scrub, Happ’s lip smoother extraordinaire has become the obsession of celebrities and women alike.

The Lip Scrub comes in delicious flavors: Almond Creme, Peppermint, Vanilla Bean, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon Sugar, and Cocoa. These yummy sounding flavors will eliminate dry, flaky skin to leave lips ridiculously soft and supple.
