Ready to go from pasty white to SEXY GLOWING BRONZE after only one application?? A quick & easy way at a cost of $5.00 or less??!!

After years of searching, trying and wasting money on products that smell bad, leave you sticky and turn you orange, I finally found the one, inexpensive, super solution to getting a fabulous glow quickly and safely!

Here’s the highlights everyone is dying to know…

•Does Not turn you any shade of orange!
•Does Not stain hands
•Does Not feel Greasy or leave you Sticky
•Does Not smell bad
•Does Not Clog Pores
•Does Not leave brown/orange Spots On Ankles, elbows & knees
•Easy & quick To Apply
•Mild Citrus Fragrance
•Creates an Even Natural Tan
•2-4 hours later you have an amazing Bronze Glow

I suggest following the instructions on the package, but I’m going to tell you exactly what I did.

I showered & scrubbed my entire body with one of my favorite inexpensive scrubs, St. Ives Apricot Invigorating Scrub, then made sure I dried my body off completely.

I applied the Tan Towel Classic in circular motions all over my body except my face. TIP: Do not start at your feet, ankles, knees or elbows. You will want to start on your butt or in your mid section and work your way down or up. Be as thorough as possible, do your feet, ankles, knees and elbows last. I am only 5’1″ so 2 packs of the half body towel or one full body towel covered my entire body, but if one towel doesn’t make it, you can always buy the Self-Tanning Spray (sold separately or in a kit) to make that towel & product go further. Don’t take to long to complete cover your body with the towel(s), you will want to be sure to wash your hands immediately focusing on the webs and nails in your fingers.  No one ever wants that nasty stain on visible body parts…lol.

After the application, you may feel slightly sticky at first but once the product begins to dry your skin will feel super soft & smooth without any leftover residue, grease or stickiness. You will immediately noticed a slight color change. The longer you wait the darker you will get, as the product states, allow 2-4 hours for color change. After product is completely dry, you can get dressed. I prefer to do this at night, when I wake up in the morning I have a fabulous noticeable, BRONZE GLOW. I haven’t found that the product rubs off on my clothing, added bonus!

So, I want to reiterate this again, there is NONE WHAT SO EVER ORANGE TINT to my skin. Woo Hoo! I can’t tell you how exciting this is for me, especially since I used to pay plenty money each month to bake in the tanning bed for hours each week to get a tan, then to maintain it. This wonderful product is very inexpensive, safe and quick, which makes me smile.  :o)

So, I’m as happy as can be, I will only have to use the towel 2-3 times a week and only taking up about 15 minutes of my busy time to maintain this sexy tan of mine.

My all time favorite beauty store is ULTA, and that is where I got this little gem and a lot of my skin care and make-up needs.

Box for an additional $15 for all the extra stuff you did for us, driving, ironing, etc.  Looking foward to getting more things embroidered in the future! – Chelsea L.”

Hurricane Gustav – Effects witnessed in Destin

September 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Our usual Labor Day Weekend trip to Destin, Florida turned into an evacuation. The unknown of what track Gustav would take, would happen to our home and if we had a home to come back to weighed heavily on our minds. We left, planning for the worst, as always, and praying for the best.

We evacuated New Orleans Friday afternoon, August 29th for Hurricane Gustav and headed to Destin. We stayed at Camping on the Gulf, as we do every Labor Day weekend.  Saturday was beautiful; the water was like glass, sunny and hot, your typical Destin day. We tried our best to relax, have fun and enjoy the day, but the anxiety of the approaching storm remained.

Sunday morning was sunny but the waves were rough, a yellow flag was flying as Gustav made its way closer to the coast. We played hard that morning in the water, by mid-morning the waves got so rough even I was exhausted from getting beat up and had enough. It was beginning to get scary being in the Gulf, so we called it quits and headed to the pool. That afternoon was when we first started seeing the effects of Hurricane Gustav approaching the Louisiana coast. There was a lot of cloud coverage, strong winds and off and on light to moderate rain. Nothing to be concerned about.

We woke early Monday morning to gusts of wind and periodic rain varying from light, moderate and heavy. It all depended on if an outer band was over us or not. The most impressive thing I witnessed was the Gulf of Mexico. The waves ranged from approximately 3-4 ft. late Sunday to 8 ft. waves into Monday afternoon. Double Red flags whipped around in the strong winds, and beach patrol monitored the beach ensuring no one at all entered the water. The waves encompassed the entire beach and rolled into the edge of the campground. All in all it wasn’t that scary, just amazing to say the least.  I had never witness a storm right on the water like that before, and now have a greater respect for Mother Nature.
