Sunbed Fail

I have been feeling a bit pastey lately and wanted to de-ghost myself, so I went for a sunbed and was advised to use some tan accelerator. I was handed something which smelt of pineapple and came in a yellow bottle...very nice I thought. I decided to stick to 9 minutes in the oven as I hadn't been on a sunbed since October and I'm really conscious of their ageing effects.  

All was fine until I was getting ready to go to my Zumba class and I realised that I had turned the colour of OPI Thrill of Brazil (see what I did there). Basically I'm red all over and I'm cooking from the inside, which is definitely not a good look. Anyway, I'm a trooper and I went to Zumba despite my mishap. I endured 60 minutes of physical torture because I kept my hoodie on throughout the whole class in order to hide what a tit I had been and the instructor kindly decided to "crank it up a notch" this week. When I got home I looked even more like a dish from Red Lobster. 

So the moral of the story is...never take advice on which tan accelerator to use from a man with botox, wearing pink leopard Minx nail wraps or you will end up like this...


  1. It doesn't look too bad! Hopefully it goes down though :)

    Email me please as I cannot find your email!


  2. The picture doesn't do it justice. I was really stupid. To top it off I was woken up to "Happy Valentines Day Panda Eyes". Went and checked in the mirror and I do indeed have rings around my eyes :)
