The jig is up, if you have seen me in the flesh, I am not a bronzed beaut. I am pale, light colored hair, blue eyes (you know the type). Back to the pale skin.... I do not tan well, and my sun burns are NOT to be admired! I am usually smeared up with some SPF 55 or above and re-applying within the hour.
I have tried tanning in regular beds and high power beds for the pale skinned ones, spray tans, self tanners (o- whata mess), I even tried tanning with baby oil (many years ago, I saw a darker friend doing this- needless to say I looked a lil crispy)!
So, tonight I was scoping out the sunblock aisle at the Wal-Mart, and I picked up a product that is a self tanner and it is on a towelette. Just rub it all ov-a after you jump out of the tub and presto, after it dries I will have a tan!
Here is a photo of the product.... have ya seen it.
My friend Kelly used it and yal she always looks so great and she has color/ tan.
So, it was 9:15 the children are snug in their bed and I head to the shower. Scrub scrub dry and then I apply.....waiting.....still feel a little sticky...so I break out the hair dryer.... yes, I blow dried myself (praying my husband would not walk in...I have been in there for many many, 38 minutes). Still feeling sticky.
Funny: I have walked out of the bathroom. I told Aron what I have done and he is so sweet (seriously I do LOVE him so) and he looks at me without even cracking a grin and says, "honey, it works you look so dark." I just smile.. he is precious.. then I remind him... "Aron, the lights are off."
Anyways, now I am typing this post as I stand in front of the computer... yal I don't want no streaks now! Would D-I-E if we had a peeper and he saw me in my skimmies- he would die to.. of laughter!!
I will update ya tomorrow. I am in a wedding next week and I do not want to look like I am kin to Edward Cullen (ahhhh Edward Cullen.. so dreamy).
Love yals faces!
