Hello, my lovelies!
It’s a new year and it’s a new me; I hope you are all feeling amazing! I sincerely apologize for my hiatus from the blogosphere. I have missed you all- your stories, ootd’s, tips & tricks- more than you know.
Over the Christmas holiday my family and I traveled to my in-law’s (about 700 miles away) and ended up staying for 11 days! I had limited internet access while I was there. Of course, as soon as I arrived home I ended up getting the flu and basically slept for the next week. On top of it all, my photography business ended on a high note last year, however, it stuck me with a little unfinished work that I have been trying to catch up on. After a couple of you checked up on me via Twitter, I realized that it has been almost a month since I posted anything significant. I even skipped my December favorites! I am completely appalled at myself and promise that I will try to keep you more up to date on things going on in my life from now on so I don’t just seem like a phantom blogger.
That being said, if you guys have any special moments that you shared with you family and friends while I was away please let me know in the comments or shoot me an email. I would LOVE to hear from you!
So, I am so psyched up about going on our cruise in the next couple of weeks, I can’t even stand it. I bought an amazing little number from ModCloth & a high-waisted bikini from ASOS that is the perfect suit for a somewhat self-conscious mom like me. Both of these purchases are pictured below…
But, now, what I really need, after spending most of this awkwardly, warm winter inside is a base tan. And, I am looking to you for suggestions! I am against spray tanning because when it starts wearing off it looks like I have a disease. It’s very spotty and flaky… Or, at least, it has been in the past.
Also, I am not one of those girls who worships tanning beds and have been disappointed in the lack of “immediate” results that have been promised to me but, not delivered; even in high pressure beds. I have tried Jergen’s Natural Glow sunless tanning lotion and Neutrogena MicoMist airbrush sunless tanner. Unfortunately, neither of them have given me a sufficient foundation without looking a bit orange.
So, this is where you stunners come in… I need, desperately, your advice on an actually fool proof, affordable, sunless tanner for a medium skinned gal like me. Please, leave recommendations in the comments below! We are leaving on February 1st so I don’t have much time to waste. I appreciate your help!
