Posted on January 2nd, 2015

We closed 2014 with another year of the best in beauty, fashion, fitness and more! The new year is a great time for new beginnings, but before we turn a new leaf let’s check out some of the best happenings of 2014!

Here are the 10 events and happenings that topped our list in 2014:

1. Ice Bucket Challenge
Pouring ice over your head for a good cause went to Hollywood in 2014! According to an article from Forbes, the Ice Bucket Challenge raised over 100 million dollars. Everyone was a winner since the icy trend raised millions and we got to see some our favorite celebrities get soaked.

2. Kim Kardashian Wedding
Kim Kardashian’s tan takes the cake! After all, one of our favorite tanning lotions is the Kardashian Glow Ice Bronzer by Designer Skin. Better yet, her Givenchy Haute Couture Gown gave us something to think about all year long. Check out her wedding album via  PopSugar.

3. Happy by Pharrell
There’s nothing we liked listening to more in 2014 than Happy by Pharell – especially while relaxing in an iTAN sunbed. It was no surprise that it was the top song on both Billboard and Facebook.

4. Del Mar Races Screen Shot 2014-12-29 at 2.59.19 PM

6. Elusive by Designer Skin
A toss of the hair, a twinkle in the eye, Elusive by Designer Skin was the X factor in our relaxing sun sessions at iTAN. The lotions unprecedented power of 50X bronzers gave us unparalleled bronzing results while leaving our skin feeling absolutely flawless.

7. Soul Cycle
Raise your hand if you made it to at least one Soul Cycle class in 2014! We were immediately drawn to the trend when an article published on Buzzfeed, “14 Things That Will Happen In Your First SoulCycle Class” stated “1. You will be greeted by tan, dewy goddesses — who also happen to be super-helpful.” After reading that, we never looked back.

8. Frozen
We’re never going to let it go! The movie Frozen made 2014 the year of all things chilly. As Southern California natives, we couldn’t help but dream of a winter wonderland and the rest of the world agreed. An article on BBC said Frozen was the most downloaded movie on iTunes and Google Play in 2014.
