Tanning in the park



Today, as it has been very hot (for England) I decided to go to the park and try to get a bit of colour on my skin! I have really been wanting to get away somewhere but havent booked anything as of yet so...im desperate! haha,  It was actually really lovely chilling out though and listening to some music in the sun. I grabbed some bits before I left, so I consider these my park-tanning essentials!
(The most essential thing is missing, sun tan lotion! Because I haven't bought any since moving, doh!)

Beauty essentials 
The body shop Coconut hand cleanse gel / Boots botanics toner spritz / Bobbi brown Cabo coral pot rouge / Carmex / Institut Bronze repair tanning lotion / NARS Tinted moisturiser

Other essentials 
H&M Headband / iPhone / iPad / Prada knockoff Sunnies / Oyster card

Let me know how you've been enjoying the sun!

Isn't it typical that it's supposed to turn to thunder storms on Friday; the day the Olympic opening ceremony is!

Hey Sammi,

I was wondering what you thought of this trend? Would you wear all these colours? Maybe you could do a tutorial on how you would wear them! :)

I can't get out in the sun without a body of water nearby! I've really enjoyed just laying back on a float in the middle of the pool this summer.

Looks like wonderful weather! When I was in London it was all sunny skys and not a single cloud in the sky! I guess Texas brought some sunshine? haha

Great post Sammi!

Hey Sammi! Sorry that this comment is so unrelated, but I think you'd be the best person to answer my question - can you suggest some MAC neutral (browns, greys, plums) eyeshadows (mattes and shimmers) for NC 43 skin? I know you're a bit lighter than that, but I figure what works on you will work on me. Thanks so much!! xx

Been dying to try some of the NARS skin products, I've been eyeing up their sheer glow foundation! xxx

Kimmy said...

I like the look of the bobbi brown coral pot. Is it a lippie or blush? What sort of coverage do you get from the NARS tinted moisturiser?

Very unusual as I have not tried it. I have tried tanning at the beach and in my backyard. Fresh from moroccan oil hair treatment, my hair needs to absorb sunlight so this is one venue to add for tanning.

miahays said...

I want to go out and get a tan again! But right ow, I'm just looking for skin care tips. I don't wanna do anything on my skin for now. Maybe next time I'll come to the park because I really miss the sun!
