Summer is definitely over, and so is my tan. I have been sun obsessed for as long as I can remember. Some people love ski vacations and winter, but the only vacation for me is one on a beach in a lounge chair. My collection of bikinis and sarongs far exceeds that of my sweaters. I began tanning with my mom when I was in middle school. I would sit out for hours with a homemade reflector made with aluminum foil and a double-sided album (Billy Joel’s Glass Houses comes to mind) and baby oil. Just thinking about this makes me cringe. Still, I do like how I look with a tan, so I continued to lie out in the sun over every vacation and weekends all summer. A visit to my dermatologist this fall convinced me that my sun obsession has to stop for good, but I still wanted that tan look.
I had tried self-tanners in the past, but never felt that I got a “real” tan with them and instead was left looking a bit orange, and smelling like self-tanner for days. I had received a sample of a self-tanner at a department store and decided to give it a try. It was love at first application. This product Kanebo Sensai went on easily, had no scent and left me with an even tan and glowing skin that lasted for days. I am hooked and it has eased my transition from sun worshiper to fake tan lover.
Do you like how you look with a tan; and how do you achieve that look in the dead of winter? Have you ever tried a self-tanner and is there a trick to applying to it your body to make it even?

Are Ponytails the New Black?Are Ponytails the New Black?
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2009
Most looked sexy and gorgeous and it made me want to try it for myself which I will once I get down a technique that looks ready for a night out instead of a morning at Spin class.
Have you worn your hair in a ponytail to go out at night? Is it because you didn’t have time to do your hair or because you love the look? Any tips on how to make one that looks fantastic?
