Pasta Aglio e Olio

It’s ridiculous what a spray tan does for my confidence.

I go from to 0 to 100 reallllll quick. I walk in a pasty nerd & come out a bronzed star. A star, I tell you!

For some girls, it’s a hair cut. Maybe a mani/pedi. Nah. For me, I want to get naked & stand in a machine that sprays me with tan juice. That feeling when I walk out & look at myself in the mirror & it looks like I have just walked off a beach in Bora Bora – that’s euphoria.

I know it’s shallow. I get that. But taking selfies is shallow, too, & y’all know I’m never going to stop doing that.

Speaking of, I need to snap a couple while this tan is still fresh.
