Soooo…. about this weekend…
I know, I know. I said I was going to chill out with the shopping, because let’s face it- I’m in no way shape or form rolling in dough. I did consign a crapload (technical term) of stuff about 2 months ago, so I can sort of justify these purchases. But in addition to that, I’ve also mentioned before about my whole style evolution and needing to freshen up the duds. Yes, you’re right, enough with the excuses.
So me and the biff hit the Hershey Outlets this weekend and did just a wee bit of damage. Mostly in the form of shoes.
Why yes, those shoes are on my breakfast bar, but I skyped with my SIL yesterday and obvi had to show them all to her. PLUS… before you tell my I have a problem, I will have you know that I got 4 pairs (one pair unpictured) for…wait for it…
I also did work at LOFT, stocked up on my favorite bras from Calvin Klein, and escaped J. Crew with just one single shirt under $20 and called it a day. If you ask me, that’s a pretty fantastically executed little trip to the Outlets.
Well… tan towel, singular, and um… I think you’re supposed to use more than one*. I felt like it kind of ran out of juice once I got up to my arms, and there was way more solution applied to my legs. So as I suspected, my legs do have some pretty decent color, but there are definitely some awkwardly placed spots that I missed. My arms didn’t darken too much, but I can still see a difference. I will definitely give them a second chance and make sure I try and get more of an even coverage next time, but they actually smelled really nice and the color is much less-orange than other self-tanners I’ve tried and I didn’t end up with unevenness on my elbows, knees, etc. Although my husband did make a “Snookie” joke last night when I was applying, but he thinks he’s cute and we’ll just go ahead and ignore that.
*Update: Ok you are supposed to use 2. Oops. Used the second one to fill in spots I missed and apply another coat to my upper body and now it’s WAY better. I would totally use these again!
Ever tried tan towels before? Thoughts?
