Wales 2017 Travel Diary

The majority of this week has been spent in Wales on a family holiday. Whilst there, we met up with friends and celebrated my brother birthday too. We chose to stay on a Haven site as there was more to do there than in a hotel for the week.

Cut a long story short, we all had a lovely time and made some funny memories. I won't ramble on about the boring stuff... I'll leave you with some photos to give you an idea of what I have been up to.

Have you ever been to Wales? If so, where?

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed

St Moriz Fake Tan and Routine

Everyone feels better with a tan, right? It is only in the past few years that I have actually fake tanned. (Aside from the gradual tanning lotions... Yes, I'm talking about Dove Summer Glow!) 

There are so many different brands out there that claim to do different things to your skin. It may add a shimmer, glow or last longer than others. But, at the end of the day, you still get a tan from a bottle without having to leave the house.

It was around this time 2 years ago that I properly wanted to tan in time for Prom. I didn't have a holiday planned in the run up so the only way I could do it was if it was fake. I'd heard of the St Tropez than and heard amazing things about the brand. The only thing that was putting me off was the price tag. As I had never tanned before, I didn't know what to expect. I was going to do a trail but still didn't want to spend quite a lot of money on something for me not to like it. My Mum was told by a friend to try the the St Moriz tan. There is a bit of a difference in spending £20 per bottle compared to £3 per bottle.

Cut a long story short, I used the St Moriz Self Tan Mist Instant - Medium for prom and had so many compliments on how natural and glowy it looked. I love this tan and can't rave about it enough if you want to get into tanning but without the price tag. The only problem is that I have to wait 5-6 hours for it to develop so it isn't a quick tan if you plan of going somewhere at night last minute.

However, I found a tan that develops a little quicker, and you are in control. It is the St Moriz Pro Fast Self Tan Foam. This gives an indicator on the bottle and depending in how dark you want to go, depends how long you leave it on for. I have to admit, I am reaching for this over the other one purely because I can wash it off after 4 hours and have a decent looking tan without having to wait for ages.

I apply a light moisturiser about 30 mins before I apply the tan to help it soak in and prevent dark patches where there is dry skin. Both tans are applied with an applicator mitt which blends out the tan evenly and helps buff it into my skin easier. I then wash it off after the allocated time with water and pat dry my skin to prevent rubbing it off. I usually apply it every 2 weeks to give myself a break and allow the tan to fade and have a fresh base for the following time.

I highly recommend this product and will continue to use it each and every time I tan.

Have you used fake tan? What brand do you use?
