Pre-special occasion essentials…
This should really be called pre-special-event pampering, as although I wrote this with holiday prep in mind, it really doesn’t have to be for a holiday at all. The pampering treatments I went for were just the few, fairly simple steps that make me feel that bit better about myself – be it for getting into a bikini or a posh frock for a Christmas do.
But I’ll save you the bikini shots and instead just use another fairly generic holiday snap… despite the fact holiday now seems a million years ago!
The three essential ‘feel good’ steps for me are:
Patricia from The Tan Team was absolutely lovely, I felt totally comfortable, despite my state of undress… she was great at listening to the level of tan I wanted and really did pay attention to detail to make sure everywhere was totally covered. The end result was a deeper tan than I normally go for – but this was pre-holiday and I wanted to be a bit braver. There were a few areas where it was a bit *too* dark around my feet, but I will put that down to my poor-effort exfoliation.
It was all a fairly quick process, despite the fact it all looked a bit crazy with a pop up space-ship tent and full on spray tan equipment it was all in and out very quickly with no mess or hassle for me. I was then left to my own devices to let the tan develop in the comfort of my flat.

The Salon Treatments:
I always go for the blue-black shade as it looks so much darker than the slightly grey-ish black shade. Plus I feel it flatters my blue eyes. The darker lash effect lasts around a month, so ideal for a holiday. For those with darker lashes I wouldn’t bother, but for pale lashes it’s amazing.
