Seeking A Summer Tan

We're quickly approaching summer, and I still don't have a tan.
I had grand dreams of getting a nice tan in Brazil, but those flew out the window
 when I got a terrible sunburn on first day of the cruise, despite applying SPF 35 three times.
I guess that's just the just the Polish in me.

P.S. Vicotria Secert had a sale this weekend 7 pair for $26, I may have scored some more leopard undies, as If I needed more...okay back to my post.

But it's when I wore this shirt that I realized, it's really bad, we match.
(We as in the shirt and I)
Because as much as I don't like to admit it, I feel better with a tan.
I feel like it makes me look thinner, my teeth look whiter, my hair look blonder, which while 'cliche' helps makes me feel more attractive. Remember how I suck at sexy?
....yeah a tan helps me with that.

So now I am on the hunt for the perfect self tanner.

I've had success in the past with Tan Towels.
I wiped on the tan seen below for my brothers wedding.
Side Note: My Sister In Law is due ANY day now!!
I sprayed this tanner on in my bathroom for my NYE in Vegas
It just took too many sprays (five nights in a row) for it to look 'good' 
And a trip to Mexico helped my tan (this one was natural) as well.
 So I just bought these two from amazon.

I'll let you know how they go.
But anything will be an improvement.

Which self tanners have you been happy with??
Tell me, girlfriend needs to know!!!


  1. Sooo you don't do sexy?? That lbd picture from new years says otherwise cause you were rockin it! I've never really done the self tanner thing... I've always tanned pretty easily. But now that I'm working full time I have less time to actually be outside so I've been looking into it. Looking forward to seeing how it goes!

  2. I've been using a Tan Towel/Jergens daily moisturizer combo lately and I'm a pretty big fan... Totally agree about the airbrush tanner... I liked the end result but I feel like it takes almost the whole can to get there! No thanks.

  3. I love love love Mystic Tan! You have to go to the tanning place to do it, but just one session looks amazing and it takes like 5 minutes. Our local place (Club Sun, don't know if you have that where you are) has these $9.99 coupons every so often and I go when I can snatch one up! You can also choose light, medium or dark so it doesn't come out orange.

  4. I need to know how tall each of you are in that one picture. haha Hotties. All I could pay attention to was legs for miles. Self Tan, you say? Hmmmm. Could only see legs;)

  5. Everyone I know says that Fake Bake is the BEST. I've yet to try it, but I have been using that L'Oreal one you listed. I was excited about it at first, but then it started coming in patchy. Not happy. I'm trying Fake Bake next!

  6. Fake bake is my fav. I also really like San Tropez, if you get the mit. It was my go-to when I worked at Sephora.
    Love your blog!
