Taylor Swift covers British Vogue, looks pretty amazing!

1412165970_taylor-swift-article

Taylor Swift lands the new cover of British Vogue, and I think she looks great. Different, but great! I don’t even mind the fact that it looks like she’s rockin a mullet! :)

Here’s some interview tidbits from inside, via US Weekly:

Everything has changed for Taylor Swift. Once synonymous with broken hearts, love songs, and high-profile flings, Swift now says that romance is far from her first priority.

“Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind,” Swift, 24, said in a new cover story interview for British Vogue. “I can’t picture how it could work with the way my life is. I don’t know how a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can’t protect his girlfriend because that’s the life she chose.”

The stunning singer, who previously dated the likes of Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, and John Mayer, added that she is actively avoiding a relationship.

“I just don’t see how it could work, so I don’t think about it, and I kind of run from it when it presents itself,” she said. “I don’t think any guy really… They think that they would want to get to know me, and maybe date me, but I don’t think they want what comes with it.”

The “You Belong with Me” singer picked up some tricks from her new model BFF Karlie Kloss for her British Vogue spread, posing for the October issue in a gorgeous photo shoot done by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino. She looks chic and sexy on the cover, sitting with her legs folded under her and wearing a light pink Miu Miu jacket over a pale blue cable knit tank.

It’s a particularly exciting time for Swift, as the rising sartorial star is releasing her fifth studio album, 1989, on Oct. 27. Led by the hit single “Shake It Off,” the all-pop album is a complete, deliberate departure from Swift’s country roots.

“This time around I’ve chosen the brave and bold way of going about things,” she told British Vogue. “Because with this album I’ve completely changed the sound of everything I’ve done until now. So it’s interesting to not be afraid of that. You know, I don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, I don’t want to betray Nashville, whatever, but essentially it comes down to challenging yourself as an artist.”

Karora Cosmetics Contest Winner!

KARORA collection

Congratulations to our winner Amy W. Watch your email inbox for an email!

I was recently introduced to the Karora Cosmetics self tanning line and I love it. I love the natural gorgeous glow this line gives my skin. Enter today to win your own bottle of Karora Tinted Self Tan Mist and Karora Gradual Tan!

karora tinted self tan mist

The first thing I noticed was how great the mist was. The spray was even and wide and really easy to control. I used a tanning mitt and rub in a light circular motion after I apply the mist to make sure I have even coverage. One of my favorite things is how quick this dries, within seconds my skin was dry to the touch and no heavy self tan scent. I like to apply it at night before bed then wake up with a gorgeous golden hue. On top of a really beautiful golden shade this tan lasts 5-7 days on my and fades so naturally I have to remind myself it was a spray not natural tan.

KARORA TINTED SELF TAN MIST $30
Release your radiant goddess with a color match made in heaven. A guiding golden tint gives instant glow gratification and develops into a glorious honey dipped tan. Botanical extracts lock in moisture guaranteeing complexion perfection and long lasting color that fades incredibly evenly. This multi-award winning mist combines custom color with skin caring botanicals to deliver a sun kissed glow to suit your individual skin tone. Color lasts up to seven days and fades like a natural tan. The tinted formula glides on effortlessly, dries quickly and the golden streak-free color intensifies after a few hours. There is no faux tan smell, just a fresh citrus fragrance while our signature botanicals of acai & argan will keep skin in tip top condition.

Directions: Spray directly onto mitt & apply onto skin using colour guide to ensure even coverage.

Signature ingredients: a botanical cocktail of aloe, acai berry, argan and coconut oil instantly ups skin radiance while an aromatic citrus melon twist ensures you smell as good as your skin looks.

karora gradual tan and mitt

The Karora Gradual Tan is a lotion based sunless tanner that hydrates while it gives you a golden glow. And if you use sunless tanners often you know how important healthy, hydrated skin is to a good self tan.

I applied this self tanner with the Karora self tanning mitt which is hands down my favorite tanning mitt I’ve tried. The surface is so smooth it works the product for even coverage without soaking it all up. And the mitt protects my hands from absorbing all the self tanner and letting my secret slip.

If you’re timid about self tanners this is a great product for you. With my first nights use I woke the next day with a nice subtle glow. It didn’t look overly tan, more like my skin perfected with a healthy glow. Then if I want a little more oomph to my color I can reapply to deepen the tan. The lotion was easy to apply and dried within minutes and once again no weird self tanner smell.

KARORA GRADUAL TAN $25.00
Get glowing with a daily dose of natural color and a burst of hydration. This moisture rich lotion replenishes and conditions the face and body with botanical boosting hydrators while turning it gloriously golden. Layer it up for a richer honey-dipped color. Smells good, feels good and gives a lovely glow in just one application – that’s why it’s a beauty award winner. KARORA Gradual Tan jump starts your tan after one application and builds into a deeper golden colour after just 1-2 further applications. Fused with a proprietary blend of skin caring botanicals, the rich and luxurious formula glides on the skin leaving a fresh citrus fragrance. A real skin conditioning treat that ensures your colour fades evenly and naturally.

Directions: Blend into skin ensuring even coverage. Re-apply daily for deeper colour. Wash hands after each application.

Signature ingredients: fused with a fine tuned blend of jojoba, coconut oil, rosemary leaf extract, vitamin E and essential oil of argan to soften, sooth and condition the skin. With an aromatic top note of fresh orange oil for a blossoming skin scent.

Available at: www.ulta.com and Ulta Beauty Stores nationwide, at www.hsn.com and from C.O. Bigelow.
