Dear Spring and Summer,

Dear Spring and Summer,
I’ve had enough. Spring “officially” started last week and we get a snow storm in Maryland on Monday instead. SNOW STORM. I’m talking 3-4 inches after a winter of no snow. Now if you don’t get your act together…you’re going to cause this dangerously pale woman to resort to drastic measures. I have
🔸St.Tropez tanning products
🔸Sally Hansen fake leg spray
🔸A tanning mitt
🔸Rimmel London and Guerlain bronzers
🔸Soap and glory exfoliator

And I know (for the most part…) how to use them. Get it together Mother Nature….you’re not cute. My windows beg to be down…and I want to play “Party in the USA” on blast. I need this.

Armed and Ready,
Pale kid for life

Ps…here we have Elphie “helping” set up my products. She’s really involved in the blogging process.

I love feeling slightly metropolitan for a day…nice break from the normal ness that suburbia has to offer. Every time I visit a city…I get the feeling that I could live there. I could be a metropolitan lady, catching cabs and buses, walking everywhere, jay walking a little bit…and eating a random pretzel from a street vender or food truck just because the mood hit me right… Or just popping into a Starbucks to have a good read with some tea.
