The Spray Tan Party

Remember that I told you that last Saturday was my birthday?

Well, a group of my cousins all have a business together.   
A few weeks ago, they were looking online for ideas to do for a different cousin's birthday.  One of the things they came across was an at home spray tanning party.
They (being boys) thought it was the stupidest thing they had ever heard of.

So as a joke, my cousin said to me:
"Do you know what you want for your birthday?"
Me: "No."
"How about an spray tanning party, ha ha."
Me: "Seriously?  That sounds SO FUN!"

Ha ha, so what started out as a joke, because a spray tanning birthday party.
Everyone had a blast, and walked away nice and tan for the holidays :)

The instructions for the party were:
"No makeup, no lotion, wear sweats."
So here we our sweats...without any makeup...but at least we're tan!
(Megan, Me, Leslie, Andi,
Chantelle, Joy, Brittany)

I've never had a spray tan before so I was a little nervous.
Hasn't everyone heard horror stories of someone turning bright orange?
Well, the girl that did it warned us that we would wake up the next morning looking like "Aunt Jemima."
I'm so glad she warned me because the next morning...oh my...I looked scary.
After I showered though, I loved it.
The only makeup I wore all day was mascara. 
She matched each of us with a custom color, so I looked like I had perfect skin for about a week :)  Even my dark circles under my eyes were gone because they were spray tanned LOL.
It was so fun.  SO FUN!  It was also fun just to have a girls' night.  They are so rare.
We ate Sweet Tooth Fairy Cupcakes and talked about blogs and life and kids and how we are should have spray tanning parties more often, ha ha.
It was the ultimate girls night and I loved it!

Has anyone else had a spray tan before?  What did you think?


  1. it was so fun :) we need to do it again for sure!

  2. That sounds like a blast! I have had lots of spray tans because I am so fair and I don't like fake tanning, so it gives me color without all the risks. I hate the crazy color I am at first, as well as the smell, but after a shower it's perfect skin for about a week! I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive or I would do it more often. Especially during the winter here in Colorado. Looks like you had a great time and happy belated birthday!!

  3. I've never had a spray tan before but if what you're saying about no makeup or under eye circles is true...I'm tempted! I'm super pale but I can get tan in the summer if I try. I'm just wary of skin cancer so I usually don't get much sun.

  4. FUN! I am super jealous. I want a spray tan party! Or, at least a spray tan!

  5. That's so cool! I'm so interested. Was it very expensive since everyone was customized? Could you email me the details? Thanks!

  6. That sounds like alot of fun! I have never gotten a spray tan before but I want to try!

  7. You all look beautiful! That is so fun to have a party! I love spray on tans, I got them a lot when I competed for Miss Murray. You feel so beautiful and glamorous with the tan! Airbrush tans are my favorite! :)
