The Skinny Confidential

The Skinny Confidential talks book reviews.Hi!

There’s been a lot of e-mails regarding the book, so I wanted to just share some real deal/organic/authentic TSC book reviews with you guys.



The first review was from The Fashion Bite ( << how cute is she in black & white above?? ). Katie’s a close friend and she works for Blog-Doo, so I was thrilled when she positively reviewed the book here.

My girlfriend, Annie Lawless from Suja Juice & the blog, BLAWNDE also showcased the book here & her pic is seriously the cutest thing ever…right?!

Lisa from The Skinny On Health wrote about the book too in a fun, pretty way here. Love her brunette lock— so pretty!

I literally can’t get enough lately.

I’m seriously, like, going to turn into a walking squash. It’s turning into a creepy problem.

For some reason, I’m like a pregnant pickle lady lately. But I’m not pregnant & the pickle is spaghetti squash.

Speaking of obsessions, let’s talk about ice cream.

Not nasty-ass dairy filled ice cream. Clean ice cream…that’s so damn good it hurts.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Basically all you do is blend the above ingreds ( 1 1/2 banana, about 10 raspberries, 3 tablespoons of goji powder, 2 drops of vanilla, & a handful of ice ). After its blended add some coconut flakes on top & then get ready for a strobe light, techno party in your mouth.

Yesterday I was scrolling through my Instagram feed & died with excitement when I found this cotton candy ice cream via Loni Jane ( << my favorite Insty account, by far ). I literally hoped out of bed this AM & ran, skipped, did ‘the Jig’ to the nearest store. & lemme tell you, this hot pink recipe is going down as one of my favorites. It’s refreshing, delicious, & gets rid of any ice cream/sorbet craving. Plus there’s some badass benefits of goji berries: it aids in mental well-being/calmness, athletic performance, happiness, & enhances quality of sleep.

BTW: Dang coconut chips are just ridiculous. There’s three ingredients in them ( coconut, coconut sugar, & sea salt ) and they can be added to everything & anything…think: oatmeal, fruit bowls, smoothies, etc.

Ok, I’m off to eat a little more spaghetti squash & watch “The Following.”

Revamp!! The Skinny Confidential Had a Makeover!!

The Skinny Confidential's makeover.

The Skinny Confidential's makeover.


The Skinny Confidential revamp is finalllllllllllly here…!

Ok, first things first: I totally, seriously missed you guys. It’s a lonely world out there ( at least for me ) without TSC. It was super weird not blogging for five whole days…so it’s good to be back. I feel like I’ve been totally removed from my friends…AKA you guys. Weird??

Anyway, let me back-up: about four months ago I decided to kick The Skinny Confidential up a notch. I wanted to make the site as user-friendly as poss. Soooo I put together a list of all your questions, e-mails, etc. & started the re-design.

Re-designing a website is sort of like, umm, giving birth to a child.

I kid, I kid.

But really, on a serious note I put my damn heart & soul & OCD-ness into this makeover.

Basically I’m a big fan of evolving. Here’s the deal: if I don’t evolve, I get stagnant.

& sorry but stagnant sucks. Like, seriously, seriously sucks.

I gotta change it up every once in a while or I’ll be bored to death.

I mean, you know how on Facebook whenever they re-design the layout everyone FREAKS the F out like they’ve been told they’re not going to see daylight for months? Their status updates threaten “moving back to MySpace.” But then after a few weeks everyone forgets there was even a re-design in the first place? & oh, & BTW now everyone kinda loves it & it’s more user-friendly because they got used to it? Anyone know what I’m talking about??

Ok, so what I’m trying to say, is every little nook and cranny of TSC now, is way more user-friendly— I know it’s different, but it’s more organized. Trust me!

So WTF’s different? Check it:

The Skinny Confidential's makeover.

Some other changes are: the ‘About’ page, the ‘Press’ page, & the ‘Contact’ page. You can view a mini Instagram slideshow at the bottom the site too. I also added a ‘FAQ’ section & a ‘Collab’ form and TSC Tumblr has been changed up.

& let’s not forget what went on BTS ( behind the scenes ):

Site design: the blog was crafted by my blog design company, Blog-Doo that my best friend Erica ( << of Fashionlush ) & I founded. Basically Erica is a f-ing rockstar. I had a very, very, very ( very x 100 ) clear idea of what I wanted the new site’s aesthetic to be ( like, I annoyed her bad with my vision she told me today she wanted to punch me in the face- whoops ). Erica has worked her magic via Blog-Doo & always makes my visions come to life with her own touches. She’s the ying to my yang. Love you boo!

To the lil, sexy team of people who helped with the design: Katie from The Fashion Bite works with Blog-Doo & she’s been insane helping me with little loose ends like the newsletter & graphics ( << if you want to subscribe add your e-mail to the ‘subscribe box’ on the right hand side of the site ). A big shout-out to TSC web/backend guru, Chris Keach too– you’re amaze as always! Also, a huge thanks to Jackie Becerra who’s helped keep me on track with all things work-related. Honestly my brain has been so scattered between the book & the relaunch & life & blah/blah/blah. Basically Jackie has been there to gently remind me not to squirt toothpaste on my hairbrush…frazzled much?! FML. Hey, I guess that’s part of being an entrepreneur though…#whatssleep, #whatsahairbrush, #whatssunlight.

Photos: I def wanted a lot of new, fun photos on the site. The goal was to have pretty, clear images & that totally came to life with Katherine Rose & Chris Tran.

Video: ahhh! My favorite part. The main reason I wanted to redo the site was to add video ( I promise, there will be some future ‘vlogs’ too ). I literally could not have done this video without Chris Tran— he’s a genius when it come to videography. I had this clear vision of sharing ‘blogger life’ via video & Chris made the concept perfectly come to life. He’s hands down the best videographer ever. Also, Chris’ Instagram is probably the coolest Insta ever, check it out here.

So, ta-da. Hope you all heart the new & improved Skinny Confidential.
