I was a tanorexic for many many years! If you look at any photo of me from the time I was in 8th grade up until I got preggo with my daughter, chances are I was rockin a fake bake tan.
Tanning beds were my form of relaxation. LITERALLY!
Sad? Time to hit the salon!
Depressed? Tanning time!
Bombed a test at school? I'll get over it at tanning!
Relationships trouble? Clear your mind at tanning salon!
Need to re evaluate my life? The tanning bed is obviously the place for that ;-)
Then it happened. I found out I was Preggo with my daughter and Ughhh.... No more tanning!!! I'm not sure if it's illegal to tan while pregnant, but if you were anything like me when pregnant you definitely didn't go tanning since every book and website frowns upon it & obviously the books have to be right about everything. Swear those books could of told me to stand on one foot and jump threw hoops to make your baby smarter and I would of believed what the author was saying lol.
Long story short, most girl mourn the temporary separation from wine while pregnant, I was sad I no longer had my tanning "therapy sessions". But the good news out of it all was that after not tanning for 9months, I kinda cured my tanning addiction. I no longer had to be rocking a tan 24/7 to feel good about myself. It also introduced me to the whole self tanning lotion world. Believe it or not there are many 100% organic sunless tanning products out there, so if you want to be tan for a special event while pregnant. You can still rock your tan. Now looking back, I kinda laugh at myself & my ridiculously tan skin. I'm surprised I never got skin cancer or leather skin! Ahhhh the things we do when we are young!
Self tanning and spray tans only for this girl!
So when I had a fellow bloggers gger tell the brand reps over at Way Too Tan about my blog & they actually contacted me, I was pretty ecstatic.
Nothing better than free sunless tanning! Especially with being a mom to a crazy toddler. Running to the spray tan salon can be impossible some days, even if you want that golden glow for date night. So I was totally stoked to test this stuff out!
Tada!!!! With just one coat, I must say I love my color :) I don't look like a member of the Jersey Shore, which a lot of sunless tanning products at pharmacies will do to you, yet I'm tan enough to where my friends noticed & were complementing me all night long! And the even better part? This lotion didn't leave my hands looking orange. If you caught my live Persicope review of Way Too Tan, that was the part I was raving about the most, besides looking fabulously sun kissed of course.
