Finally - I Tried St. Tropez

I finally got my hands on a bottle of the St. Tropez Whipped Mousse self tanner. I found mine at the bottom of a bucket at Bath and Body Works during their big clearance sale. Of course, it wasn't on sale, even if it was in the $5 clearance bin. But I digress. What I have read about this mousse is true - it does give a natural brownish tan, with no hint of orange. Application was easy due to the tinted mousse, as you could see any spots that you might have missed. Color developed within three hours, and the yucky DHA smell wasn't as bad as other products I have used. My only caution with this mousse is to use some latex gloves to apply it - it WILL turn your cuticles a strange brown color, even if you scrub well afterwards and use a tan remover. So do yourself a favor and use an applicator or gloves to put this on. But how does it compare to my $10 Sublime Bronze? I'm not convinced that it was worth the extra $14. I've had such good, consistent results with Sublime Bronze that I had really high expectations out of the St. Tropez and they didn't really live up to them. I wanted to be a bronze goddess for $24! But it is a nice product, with excellent results. I just doubt I will spend that money again.

Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat to Dreamgirl-A Woman's Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship

This looks like one of those books that belong on my wishlist. After all, a girl doesn't have to chase a man, or make over her life completely into his to be part of a relationship. That's one of my personal pet peeves when a single friend meets a man and suddently becomes someone she absolutely isn't. So, this will be part of my next Amazon order!
