Glowing All Day, Everyday!

I had to take a couple of minutes to share with you all my new 'daily tanning' dream product.

Now, I have never been St. Tropez biggest fan (I don't find the mousse and/or lotion to take that well on me, and I find it oxidises extremely quickly!) but that being said, I have fallen in love all over again with the Gradual Tan Everyday Body Moisturiser in Medium/ Dark.

I find the moisturiser leaves my skin feeling hydrated (not greasy or sticky) , slightly fragranced and best of all, TANNED! Now this little sized one, pictured below, was the Beauty freebie in this months Elle magazine, but the 200ml bottle retails at £12.15 at www.feelunique.com.

Check it out!

*insert CRINGE picture of my uber tanned lower leg* you have been warned.

Pay Day Wish List (1)

Pay day tomorrow! *yippee*

In true 'splurger' style, I already know where I want to spend my money before i've earned it. So, here is the rundown on what I NEED to purchase this July.

1. Essie summer 2012 minis quad. I've heard soooo much about 'bikini so teeny' so i checked it out, then decided I need all four of the new shades. I have nothing similar in my varnish collection, promise.

2. Summer/ Beach type fragrance- Thanks to Michelle1218 on youtube, today I discovered Bobbi Brown's 'Beach'. Tomorrow I shall compare this to Estee Lauder's 'Bronze Goddess' and the new Chloe EDP and select which one shall grace my dressing table.

3. Clarins Suncare. I need to stock up on the aftersun with self tanner and the oil free SPF before my annual trip to Portugal. This is obvz a necessity, I wouldn't want to burn now would I?!

What are you going to purchase on pay day? What is on your 'summer beauty want list'? I need to know for future purchase research.
