A little colour in our lives?
I am going to a wedding in a month and although I have my outfit and shoes (see above.....I cannot wear heels anymore and these are just the right height), the outfit needs me to expose bits of myself that have been covered up all winter, (nothing disturbing you understand, just feet, legs and arms) so I am planning to treat my DiL and my daughter to join me in having a full body spray tan in the few days before the wedding. Now we three are not the manicure/pedicure/tanning/makeup girly types. In fact yet again I cut my own fringe again the other day and now have to hold my head to one side in an attempt to disguise the fact. I have had the sense to book a hair appointment for the special day though. I would prefer to be 'sprayed' at home, although I am finding it nigh on impossible to find a mobile tanner and I have no idea which type (St Tropez? Sienna x? fake bake?) is the one to go for. I don't want to look spray tanned, if you know what I mean. I would just like my white hairy legs to be hair free and look as if I have been on holiday somewhere warm.
As the wedding is on a Friday should we be tanned on the previous Tuesday, Wednesday or day before? and what can we do if we all look orange? Or should I just shelve the outfit (pale coral shift dress with jacket) and wear thick black tights with something else? No, I will go with the tan and hope for the best. Any guidance laydeeeeeeeez? Have you? Do you? would you recommend it?
And in other news.......... I have decided to retire at Christmas. This will be a reduction in money coming in but hopefully a better qua...
