Self Tanners Body Shop

I am getting more and more into beauty products and the latest experiment I started is self-tanning. This Body Shop self-tanning face lotion I bought actually by accident, I never had in mind to use self-tanners in the first place.

Madrid doesn’t have a beach and the temperatures do not really rise that much until June to really walk around in a Tshirt and short pants or even a bikini at the pool. So normally I wouldn’t really get tanned before the end of July after two months at the pool after office hours.

White is actually not such a bad color if you mix it with some bordeaux it even is immediately sophisticated, well let’s say it’s not the actual wine that ends up on your coat (I have seen this one happening, and it is an ugly sight). So I put some of my favorite white things onto a pinboard (just virtually) just because we all have something white in our closets and before we start shopping for the spring collections, it might be nice to search for this invaluable fashion pieces once more.
