In preparation for my sister’s wedding, I got sprayed today. Wait–that’s spray-tanned today (seeing as we’re in Upstate, I just realized that could’ve been misread as having to do with some type of animal or something). The spraying was necessary because:
- The wedding’s in Santa Barbara, CA;
- My sister already got her spray on, and since I’m the only one in the bridal party, I didn’t want to be upstaged by the bride (this is my day too ya’ know 😉 ); and
- Mr. Bunches and I tend to avoid the sun like the plague, so we have a certain ghost-like thing happening right now. It’s super attractive.
Although, our avoidance of all UVA/UVB rays is yet one more thing we won’t have to spend too much time worrying about these days since we’ve learned that the sun doesn’t actually shine in Western New York. Just check out this shot that we took on Sunday during our house hunting adventures:
Yep–that’s snow. Up here apparently they have April SNOW showers as opposed to rain. Noted.
But I digress . . . the point of this post is to pass on a fake bake coupon, so that you too can live vicariously through Snookie, JWoww, and MVP. I actually completely stumbled across the coupon when I was searching for a place to get Mystic Tanned, and I saw this on their site. As long as you have a participating location near you, then you’re good to go–one FREE Mystic HD Tan for the entire month of April 2011. I chose Medium this morning, in hopes that it will last until the big day on Friday (the bronzed girl at the counter suggested Light due to my skin’s current translucence, but I told her I could handle the real stuff–she wasn’t impressed). It’s only been 3 hours, and it takes a full 5-7 for it to develop, so we’ll see what I look like when I get off the plane tonight . . . hopefully, not this:
I have to admit that the Mystic HD was actually much better than the regular old Mystic Tan. In this one, the booth is heated, so you’re not shocked out of your senses when the cold mist starts. And, it has a built-in dryer, so you don’t even have to towel off. Of course, since I’m only halfway through my color creation, who knows if my review will change later today; if I end up all Oompa-Loompahed, I’ll let you know.
