Ok, I know it’s old news, but I’ve held off long enough.
And, since even Snooki has weighed in, why the heck shouldn’t I?
This post will cause trouble.
I will hear from my lovely niece, Mackenzie.
I will take flack.
I will take heat.
I will not care.
The New Jersey mom who has been accused of taking her child into a tanning bed has caused quite a stir.
Yes, she’s a tad ‘over done’.
The controversy has been not so much that she may or may not have taken her child into a tanning salon, a room with a tanning booth, or even a tanning booth itself – and I seriously doubt she did since the tanning salon would get in trouble – it’s been because she looks like an Aigner Purse! And because she’s as obnoxious as they get!
I’ll admit it, I tan.
Yes, we’ve all figured out along time ago that I’m vain…why, no one knows, but vain it is. Plus, as an international blogger, I feel I must look my best!
I like a healthy glow.
As in tan, not fried to a crisp.
I don’t look like she does, because I don’t tan like she does.
I look like this.
Here’s my educated guess as to why she looks like she does.
Number one: she’s salon hopping. I’m quite sure she has memberships at more than one tanning salon, goes to two or more a day, and doesn’t tell them. No responsible tanning manager would allow anyone to tan more than once a day, and Susan, my tanning stylist at Outback Tanning Sugarloaf tells me when I need to lay off the laying out!
Number two: she’s using ‘sunless’ tan. For you pale faces out there, that’s liquid tan, fake tan, bottle tan, tan in a can…that kind of stuff.
Number three: she’s actually sunbathing in natural sunlight, which is far more dangerous than the electric beach.
Number four: she’s wearing dark make-UP. As in make-UP for African or African-American women.
Number five: she’s going somewhere and getting a spray tan – hence the orange look. (For fake tans, air-brush tanning is the best.)
So, moderation is the key.
Tanorexia is a bad idea, and addiction of any kind is un-healthy.
If you’re going to tan, and again, I do, do it responsibly.
And for goodness sake, don’t tan and drive!
