Advice Needed

Ok ladies, I'm in the need for some advice....

My tanning package at the salon ran out a week ago, and I'm already starting to feel a little like this:

But I'm completely terrified of the C word

So I've decided to turn over a new leaf and quit the bed tanning!

I'd like to explore my other options.

A. Invest in some in home self tanner (freaks me out a bit)


B. Go to the salon and step into one of those spray tanning machines (ms. salon lady set it at a shade too dark the ONE time I tried it. It just so happened to be right before *aka the day before* I left on spring break. D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R. I was the only person on the beach wearing a turtleneck...ha. Not quite but I should have been =) Needless to say I haven't revisited the machine spray since).

and lastly

C. Keep my fingers crossed I don't end up looking like this:

Lotion Tan?
Spray Tan?
Salon Spray Tan?

Any advice/tips from my fellow tanners out there for getting the most natural and streak free results? Or any mishaps you learned from...

Vince Shlomi(44), better known as the pitch man for a super this absorbent towel and this food chopper was arrested at a hotel in Miami for a violent altercation with a prostitute(26).

According police reports(you can view them here), Shlomi told police he met Harris at a Miami Beach nightclub and took her to his $750-a-night room. Shlomi then paid Harris about $1,000 and when he kissed her, she "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched her several times until she released his tongue.

The affidavit says a bleeding Shlomi ran to the hotel lobby, where security summoned police.

Both were slap-chopped with the silver bracelets for felony aggravated battery.

All I can say is sham-Wowwwwwwwwwwwwww!

In case you wondered....

this is what I will be doing in thirty minutes....

Don't knock it til you try it haha.....such a good workout! Did circuits on the machines this morning, now back to the gym for part dos! A little pound melting before I become brave enough to bust out the bikini from the top drawer.

Thirsty Thursday!

A short and simple list of liquid indulgences....now, only if the weather would warm up already. I'm sooo sick of wearing this coat.

The Frozen Margarita

2 (6 ounce) cans frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 1/2 cups tequila
1/2 cup Triple Sec
2 tablespoons sifted confectioners' sugar
Ice cubes
Lime wedges
Coarse salt
Lime wedges, for garnish


Combine half of each of the first 4 ingredients in container of an electric blender. Process 30 seconds. Gradually add enough ice cubes to bring mixture to 3 1/2 cup level; blend until smooth. If you want to freeze for later use, pour mixture into a large freezer container. Repeat procedure with remaining half of ingredients. Cover tightly and freeze up to 1 month.

To serve, If frozen, thaw 20 minutes or until mixture becomes slushy. Rub rims of cocktail glasses with lime wedge. Place salt in saucer; spin rim of each glass in salt. Pour beverage into prepared glasses. Garnish, if desired. Serve immediately. Yields about 7 cups.

* freeze them in a popsicle tray for an equally awesome treat~!

Strawberry Julius

1 cup strawberries, sliced ( fresh is best )
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 tsp. vanilla


Slice up fresh strawberries until you have enough to fill a one cup measure. Add to a blender or food processor, or if you only have a stick mixer, just put it in a large pyrex jug. Add rest of ingredients. Blend until smooth. You may want to try this a little bit cooler for summer days, omit the water and add a few ice cubes. Also it does tend to separate if you leave it sitting around for a minute, Don't let this put you off, just stir it up a bit, it tastes the same, just tends to be more frothy at the top then.

Mocha Frappe

1 cup strong brewed coffee
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon 2% reduced-fat milk
1 1/4 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
3 tablespoons fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 teaspoon chocolate shavings


Stir together coffee, sugar, and 1 tablespoon milk in a small glass measuring cup. Pour into ice cube trays, and freeze at least 2 hours or until firm.

Process coffee ice cubes, 1 1/4 cups milk, and chocolate syrup in a blender until smooth. Dollop evenly with whipped topping, and sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Serve immediately.
