Summer is upon us.
Which, for some of us, means it’s time for certain body parts like our legs and arms to come out and play.
But how to create the ~illusion~ that they have been kissed by the sun despite hiding under a lovely, warming layer of hair all winter (and as much of spring as we could push for?).
Sun in a bottle – otherwise known as fake tan – of course.
