I have something to admit. For some reason deep inside of me, I associate spray tanning with.. umm.. fist pumping, shot taking, Jersey-shore show type people. NOT that I haven’t ever fist pumped (guilty), taken a shot (don’t act like you haven’t), or never ventured to the Jersey shore (um, only an hour and change from my house?). I don’t know what it is, but any sort of faux-tanning seems, well, ‘tacky’ to me? Not only that, but tanning in a bed is just so bad for you! Sometimes I can’t even believe tanning beds still exist..
This past week I had been deliberating on getting a spray tan. I had actually gotten spray tanned two years ago for New Years Eve but that was it. The tan was okay, not great. That being said, this weekend I have a wedding to go to (yeah Tracy and Adam!!) and I was starting to feel somewhat self-conscious of my ‘pastyish’ skin color being that it’s the middle of Summer.
Yes, yes, I hear you, ‘but you have Olive skin!’. I do, but sometimes, I want that extra somethin’. After what was probably too much deliberation, I finally decided that I’d go for the spray tan and hope for the best. Around 7:00 this evening, I stepped foot into the tanning salon, looking like my every day self, ready for my spray tan. By 7:25, I walked out of the salon with an extra pep in my step, and a goofy grin on my face. I love it! It’s a little dark right now, but I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out.
NERD. Like I said. I’m a nerd, dork, you name it 😉 but that’s okay. Anyway, the woman who did my spray said the color will fade a bit over night and the end result will look as if I have been vacationing for 2-3 days. Fine by me!
Question of the Night: Have you ever spray tanned? Did you like how it looked?
