White Teeth & Tanning…….

ok, so let me preface by saying I don’t think that tanning is safe and you should always wear sunscreen and what not and the last time I was in a bed or even in the sun for that matter was well over a year ago……..now with that being said I have not only become pale but I am an odd shade of grey/beige and it is AWFUL. Yes, it is superficial and silly but I can not stand pictures of myself recently (every blog header was over a year ago) and Marissa’s prom pics were a wake up call and this is the best of the bunch……….. So goodbye OLD NICOLE (at least for summer)
And with this summer being kicked off with Matt’s High School reunion in 1 month I started tanning again yesterday ( I got burnt after 9 min if that tells you anything)!! I mean I want to make Matty proud and my complexion as is, is not cutting it!!! BUT on the other hand I need HELP- I am fighting 2 vicious wrinkles on my forehead (ironic since I am tanning but whatever) and I hear you saying they aren’t bad but they are people even my mom points them out! SO help……. what do I do? Anyone know of any good creams?? And fast acting?

And since I am tanning I figured I would dig up the Nicole from 07 and dust her off and that includes getting my shiny white teeth back, so I have been wearing my white stripes daily!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!

Anyways this is a silly post just anouncing to everyone things have got to change!!


After speaking with a friend about this post I realized why I “let myself go”…….

It is like from the moment I “retired” from dance I was sooo fed up with being so put together everyday, being perfectly tan, skinny, pearly white and perfect that literally since my wedding day I STOPPED everything…….working out and anything! I was worn out from being “on” if that makes sense. I know it is just Matt’s reunion (matts) but I need to dig out the person I once was! At least in the looks catagory!ha

    I don’t tan for nothin’! Even when I do try in the tanning bed, I just turn pink. I’ve found a great self-tanner…Fake Bake…it smells a little better than most and the color is really pretty. Good luck with tanning!

    You should spray tan… Much healthier. I do the Versa Spa at At the Beach and it is awesome!

    Okay, do I need to start a lecture here!? First of all, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!! You’re a real person…things change! Embrace it! That will make you more beautiful. I do understand the tan thing but think how much longer you’ll be pretty if you don’t “cook” yourself! Just wait until you have kids! Hehe!!

    I’m totally laughing while I am reading this because I can totally picture you saying all this!! LOL. I know exactly how you feel, in fact I’m still “on” all the time and it sucks!! How can I compete with 19 year olds!! haha. But I did stop tanning if you can believe that. I had a few scares with some freckles on my body and just decided it’s not worth it. This coming from someone who has tanned since she was ten. Sad I know…way to go mom and dad! LOL. But I’m, for the most part pale, but healthy! 🙂
