S&T Eats – Coconut & Chocolate Frozen Bark

Looking for a sweet treat to beat the heat this summer? Try this new, not-so-guilty favorite that only takes 4 ingredients and a few, simple steps!

This recipe is simple and quick with only one minor drawback.  It takes at least 2 hours in the freezer to be fully frozen yogurt bark.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is all you need: 

  1. One 8oz tube of Noosa Coconut Yogurt (Or your favorite coconut yogurt**)
  2. 1/8 cup of semi sweet or dark chocolate mini chips
  3. Parchment Paper
  4. Aluminum Foil

**I choose a full fat yogurt because it tends to have a little less freezer burn than nonfat yogurt.  However, either option works!

How to prepare:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread the yogurt in a thin layer on the paper.
  3. Top with the mini chocolate chips.  You can also add fresh fruit and granola to spice things up!
  4. Cover the baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil.  Place in the freezer for 2 hours or overnight.
  5. When the bark is fully frozen chop the bark into pieces to serve.
  6. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you were inspired by this quick recipe to get cooking!

S&T Tutorial – Summer Wedding Guest Glam

Our very own make-up guru Mekala Viernes shows us how to beat the heat and stay glam! Perfect for a summer wedding guest look, she shows us less is more by demonstrating a highlighted, subtle make up application for staying glammed up all day through the night.

We start with our model Barbara cleansing her face with a makeup removing towelette to ensure any dirt, sweat or left over makeup is removed before the process begins as Mekala sets up her array of makeup favorites. She chose a lot of neutral tones and shimmery pieces to really accentuate the summer dewey skin look.

To begin, Mekala says she always starts with eyes first in case shadow falls or there are mistakes, it is easier to clean off before the foundation and concealer are applied rather than after.

1.Brows – First, shaping the eyebrows is an essential part to creating the glam look. For filling in the brows, she uses the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Brow Definer. For concealing the brow on the top and bottom, she uses Sephora Bright Future Concealer. Lastly, the ABH Clear Brow Gel is used to set the eyebrows.

2. Eyes – Priming the eyes is essential to ensure the shadows/liners do not crease, especially in the summer heat, so she uses the Urban Decay (UD) Primer Potion. For the first application of eyeshadow, she begins with the Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette, shade “Matte Lombardi”. This neutral shade is perfect for layering over. In the crease/transition, she layers on shade “Matt Singh”. For the outer (v) eyelid corner, she blends shades to make a darker, more defined statement, using shades “Matt Rosen” & “Matt Singh”.

Nest, she switches to the UD Naked 3 Palette and applies shade “Trick” all over her lid. She blends all shades together before she applies subtle and feminine Ardell Lashes “Demi Wispies”.

3. Foundation – After the eyes are complete and set, Mekala begins with the face by applying Sephora 10hr Perfection Foundation all over. She uses the Sephora Bright Future Concealer for under eyes. Next she uses the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder over the concealer to prevent creasing or (in this heat) melting!

4. Highlight & Contour – For a good all over bronzer and contour, the Benefit Hoola Bronzer is applied, followed by the Sephora Blush in shade “Flirt It Up” along the cheekbones. Now the fun part, highlighting! First she uses Becca Cosmetics Creme Highlighter “Champagne Pop” on the top of the cheekbones. Next she layers on ABH Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit and blends shades “Glo Getter”, “143”, and “Daydream”. To add to the summer glow look, she also uses this blend of highlighters to accentuate the collarbone.

She goes back to the eyes to smoke the lower lash line, using a combination of shades “Matt Rosen” and “Matt Singh” from the previous eye palette. She then adds highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes, using shade “dust”.

5. Lips – The final step to complete the effortless summer glam look is a neutral, but glossy, lip! She starts with a nude lipstick Maybelline “Blushing Beige” and then layers on Urban Decay Lip Gloss in shade “Freestyle” for a perfect compliment to Barbara’s dewey, highlighted look.

To complete the look, Barbara chooses a Sophie & Trey favorite, The Lux Life Classic Dress Aqua $34.99. This dress is not only a bright, summer must-have, but it hits on the lightweight satin trend and has an always flattering halter neckline.

Sophie Active – Summer Workout Styles

Things are heating up and while we ravish our Acai Bowls and Froze favorites, staying active this summer is at the top of our list. So why not stay fit in style?!
 Currently crushing on these vibrant cobalt hues, we switch up our activewear style as much as we switch up our workout routines. A go-to running short that we can’t live without is the Kick Back Active Pants $18.99. Pairing these lined, drawstring shorts with a basic tee with some feminine ruffle detail, like the One Love Ruffle Top White $14.99 is perfect for running the trail to running errands.

A perfect sports bra to vibe with this look, and also hit the criss-cross strap trend, is the Wild Caged Bralette Royal $14.99. Adding a laid back, lounge look for a casual #ootd or quick spinning session is the Jog Me Crazy Pants Grey $24.99, which is perfect for throwing on an active jacket with when the temps start dropping.

Another huge activewear trend that isn’t going anywhere fast is the mesh cutout details.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Get The Meshage Leggings Olive $22.99 are spot on for this trend, not to mention their high waisted construction and extreme comfort…we mean extreme! Doubling up on the mesh trend, The Future Classic Athletic Bra not only is perfect for high impact support, but is detailed with mesh cutouts and an open, strappy back that we can’t get enough of.

To transition your workout wear from season to season, a lightweight active jacket is the perfect solution. The Straight Up Hoodie Grey $29.99 is a fitted heather grey active top with hoodie detail and mesh cutouts. Complete with finger cutouts, this active piece is an instant favorite all year long.
