Pack, tan, laundry..not necessarily in that order

There's something about a sun kissed glow that makes you look young, vibrant, healthy and beach ready don't you think?

There really is nothing like a tan...a spray tan that is!

In preparation for my trip (36 hours..OMG!) I decided to get a little bronzed up with the help of Tan on the Run which is a travelling air brush spray tan service available here in Toronto and select cities throughout Canada.


Now that's a girl who just went through a long Canadian winter if I ever saw one!


Now that's a little better don't ya think?

The best part is that it took less than 1/2 hour (including the time to stand around and completely dry), it looks really authentic and there's no harmful UVA or UVB rays. That's right friends, its beauty meets health and I am so down for that!!!

And because I am so excited for my trip I thought I would share some of my amazing fashion bargains that are perfect for a beach getaway!




How awesome is that? I love getting fun clothes at a great price.

All and all I'd say I am just about ready for vacation to begin. One more long run, laundry, packing and 2 nights sleep and I am off!

So tell me, have you have tried an air brushed tan? Do you have any luck finding good deals on fashion items?


  1. Love Love Love the top dress, where did you get it?
    Your "tan" looks great :)

  2. I've never had a spray tan, but always wanted to give it a try! You're looks completely natural!

    p.s. I want that bikini.

  3. Love the 2nd dress!!!

    And I'm blessed enough to have a natural tan colour - so no spray tan or fake and bake for me! :o)

  4. Wow your spray tan looks awesome! I got a spray tan once and I was definitely more orange than tan!

    Have a fabulous trip :)

  5. I've never had a spray tan before. I think I look good pale. I can usually find good deals on fashion stuff, but I try to control myself and stay on a budget.

  6. I'm SO excited for you!! Have a blast! I'm trying not to be tooooo jealous ;)

    Looking good with that tan!

  7. I have never had a spray tan. I've never even thought about it. (I don't know how that's possbile since i'm a jersey shore addict.) I would be so afraid I'd come out orange!!

    I just got some cute stuff from Old Navy, and Ross. I love Ross when I can find good stuff there.

  8. the tan looks awesome. im soooo gonna need that next winter. my bf's sister is getting married in cuba and im a bridesmaid. so i totally wanna go there already sun kissed!

    CUTE clothes. have the best time!

  9. Your tan really looks good. I live in Austin and therefore have a year-round tan. I think Texas has the 2nd highest rate of skin cancer in the US. Hmmm.

  10. Your tan looks so good! Most of them make you turn orange, but yours looks perfect!!! :)
    Hope you have SO MUCH fun on your trip!!

  11. jealous of your tan! i refuse to use tanning beds, and i'm afraid of streaks, so i've been stuck being pasty white for a looooong time. maybe you've convinced me to try spray tan though!

  12. So jealous of your tan! You look great! And I want that black and white dress! too cute!

  13. I hope you're having a great time! I have been spray tanned in a booth, but never by a person. I'm trying it in May, though, so exciting!

  14. I just found your blog and I love it! Your tan looks FABULOUS and those dresses are so cute. Good choices!

  15. It is great to read some of the information and feedback, here. I hope to read more ideas in the future!!!
