I had a friend of mine reach out to me and ask about the foaming sunless tanners that I have been posting on Facebook about. We got to laughing about some of the crazy things we did as children in order to get a tan. I mentioned that I used baby oil and iodine (didn’t everybody) and that I even took some aluminum foil and laid that under me trying to get the reflection of the sun to tan me even faster. She mentioned that she used motor oil! What!!! I don’t think that I had ever heard of that one unless you were trying to catch a greased pig. Lol!I am fair complected anyway and adding the baby oil and iodine was not the smartest thing I could have done. I would normally end up looking like a boiled Lobster and then I would peel. Even when I did manage to get some semblance of a tan, it was red and not that pretty brown color that I wanted. I never understood why my daddy was so dark and brown and I looked like sliced bread. Then we went to the lake and my dad put on shorts to go riding in the boat. That is when I realized that I was more like him then I knew, he had the whitest legs I had ever seen. Lol! My dad worked outside day in and day out and he stayed tan all the time, except on those legs. Lol!!! I KNOW that I am not the only one who would climb on the roof to lay in the sun. What are some of the crazy things you have done in order to get a tan?Here I am in another open front cardigan. I am sure that you are so surprised. Lol!!! I do love cardigans and especially in the early springtime. They are fantastic for adding a little warmth but more importantly, they make you look more “put together.” It is funny how adding one extra clothing item takes the look from just a white t-shirt and jeans to looking like an “outfit.” This color blocked cardigan is one that I found on clearance at Cato Fashions so it is no longer on their website. Make sure that you always check out the clearance section in every store first and then go to the regular priced items.
My dark colored jeans are from Old Navy but they are the Original, not the Rockstar. These are still the mid-rise and skinny version that I normally wear. I like the all over dark color, no markings and no distressing. These jeans come in three different rinse options and I think this is the medium color. I buy my normal size in Old Navy jeans (10) and they fit me perfectly. If you are in doubt then go to a store and try them on or if you are like me and have to order mostly online, then order your normal size and the next one up. Then, cross your fingers that the smaller size fits. Lol!!!It is funny that when I look at this photo I probably see things that you would never notice. The first thing I notice is that I look as wide as a barn. Moving on from there, I see my Plunder necklace tag hanging down my back, I see my #5 plainly on my Alex and Ani bracelet (my reminder that I was going to hit Level V by the end of last year) and I also notice that my jeans look baggy from this angle. Don’t even get me started on my hair. Lol!
Remember to tell me the crazy things that you did to achieve a tan. And, if you want to get a nice healthy glow without the baby oil and iodine, just let me know. I placed an order for the foaming sunless tanner from Rodan + Fields and I would love to get this in your hands. It is 25.00 for the tanner and add 3.00 for the shipping and tax. Message me if you want to get a bottle or two. Before you ask, it doesn’t have a strong smell, it doesn’t turn your orange, and it doesn’t streak. Lol! Plus, as an added bonus, I will include a micro-dermabrasion paste pack for you to exfoliate first before you apply the tanner. AND, if you leave a comment about sunless tanners then I will enter you into a drawing for a FREE tanner!!!
