    naturally i look like a vampire. pale. very pale. :/

    I have tried the st tropez tan tonight (i have tried tons of brands) and its fab :D

    really nice, light colour (i dont want to go too dark/jordan tango)... however! when your doing it yourself.... how the heck can you tan your back without using a 'spray' tan? (im using the one out of a bottle?!)

    my arms dont stretch that far!!! :lol:

    Hmmm! good point there ! lol i never use the stuff im naturaly dark skinned anyway and when i catch the sun well lets just say if i smiled then yourd see me ha ha ha .........

    I've seen some girls walking around with fake tan on recently and me and OH had to laugh as the were walking around like streaky bits of bacon ha ha ...

    I don't make a habbit of mocking people but this perticular girl thought she must of had to stop at the jaw line as she had covered all her face and her arms and legs but forgot about the rest of her body hahahaha , so while sitting in maccyD's i did try NOT! to spit my burger all over OH's face as she walked past.........:D

    I have only ever had one, just before I went on holiday, I had a lady do it which was quite embarrassing and it's the only holiday I have been on and seemed to get paler by the day! :D

    Im like you, bright white! lol and i hate it!

    I use and have used for the past 10 years or so rimmell sunshimmer, its about a fiver for a tube and lasts ages and i swear by it! I use it all the time its instant and it washes off but its a really nice colour and doesnt streak! :)

    Although now the wether is getting better i have a spray tan about once every other week! Its great, she comes round to my house and shes done within 5 mins and lasts all week long! I always get one done the day before i go on holiday otherwise i just stand out like a sore thumb lol!! :eek:

    I get my OH to do my back when i need it doing!

    I hate being sooo white! :(
