Makeover Monstrosity

It's Alive...Alive! This is what I was supposed to look like. Oh yeah, look at me, strollin' down the beach, blond hair glistening in the sun, bronzed skin aglow with the perfect tan. But alas, even for me, perfection has it's limits. I got in a fight with the self tanning spray and guess who won? I'll give you a hint...my orange wrists and palms are begging for mercy. The most embarrassing part was meeting with a client today. She's hosting a party for me and I had to review the catalog, products and order forms with her, so guess where she had to look most of the time. Yup, you guessed it. My dazzling, gleaming neon orange hands. "Um, please excuse the fact that my hands look like I got into a fight with an explosive tangerine. It's just that, well, I was walking by the tanning aisle in the drug store and one of the bottles spontaneously combusted! Can you believe it?! Now the rest of this fabulous glow you see, it's all me. Really. I kid you not. Oh you noticed that my toes are a little orange too? Well, um, er...hey, look over there! Is that Big Foot chasing the dog in your backyard?" Whew, I covered that one well!

By the way...more on Makeover Monstrosity tomorrow. Let's just say I pulled out a brush, some peroxide and a little timer and said hey, putting highlights in your own hair can't be that hard. Stay tuned....

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I live for comments......

Definately keep us posted on the highlights. This should be interesting.

I am as white as the fresh fallen snow, so if you could point me to a self tanner that doesn't leave me orange please do so......

Big foot, eh? I will have to try that one sometime.

Careful of you will end up with ORAGE hair too! I tried that in the 80's...never did it again! :) Good Luck!

Speaking of which...I just got a bikin wax this AM.... OUCH! Not a great way to start your day! (8am)I hate them- but LOVE the results of not shaving for a while! :)

I haven't braved the bikini wax yet. I have a hard enough time going to the OB/Gyn. I just have this terrible fear that the aesthetician will either be completely horrified or fall down laughing and then call all of her friends after I leave.

Ah ha! Oh yes, I too, have had the orange glow once.Once. Let's just say that I avoid it at all costs now.
