TANNING UNDER THE INFLUENCE . . .

On Saturday morning, I got out of bed, looked at my legs, gasped and realised that I'd discovered yet another chore one should not try whilst inebriated.

Putting fake tan on.

I'm not the biggest fan of fake tan at the best of times and am certainly not a fan of applying it, but having a drink to make it more fun was not the best of idea.

My legs were covered in brown streaks - AND I WAS MEANT TO BE GOING OUT LIKE THAT!!!

It took major exfoliation, buying the wrong colour of "nude" tights and eventually covering my legs in FOUNDATION to get me looking half normal again.

So, along with drunken packing, drunken exercising and drunken cleaning, I guess drunken tanning is something I am going to have to the "No-No List". Sigh . . .

Anything else I need to add to that list???

20 comments:

  1. Drunk e-mailing, Drunk text-ing and Drunk phone calls to old friends/boyfriends.

    Oh! And drunk picture taking/posting

    Trust me.. you don't wanna go there.

  2. Oh no!! I never can get fake tan right so I haven't done it in forever. I hope your legs return to normal soon!!!!

    Hmm something to add...oh a blog post maybe? I wrote a blog post drunk late on Friday night that I barely remember. I'm happy I posted it but when I woke up and saw I had comments I was like huh??? Oh....Snap I did a post. YIKES!! I don't know how my grammar was good tho! =P

  3. This made me laugh! Sorry...but when I'm drunk (used to because I kinda took a break from alcohol) I stay away from my phone and scissors!

  4. Well....at least it was brown streaks and not orange. I'm so pale. No matter what type of fake tanner I try, I turn orange. It's not pretty. So I'll stick to being a shade above corpse.

    You are so funny.

  7. Add to the list - wear sandals. Or flats. Stop with the high heels. :)

  8. Oh but honey I still think you're gorgeous the way you are - fake tan or not. Admittedly, I do sometimes wonder if I like being pale because it doesn't require as much maintenance as tanning... lol :P xx

    BTW, I accidently rejected your comment on my blog! oops! =)

  12. As one of the whitest people on the face of the Earth, I sympathize, truly. I used to use fake tan all the time to take the translucent white off at the start of summer until I could build a real one. The number of days I've had to wear socks and shoes when it's almost 40 degrees out because I've got streaky ankles, could add up to a million. I've given up now. I just stay white till I get through the off white and into the light tan phase. Then I'm happy.

  14. Drunk cooking! I always end up with third degree burns whenever I try to cook inebriated :(

  15. teeheeehee.. I think we both need to learn that pretty much everything is a fail whilst intoxicated. But if it makes ya feel better, I can't do much sober either!

  16. At least you didn't do drunk shaving- that could have been fatal!

    I tried drunk dog walking before and that's just a bad, bad idea.

  17. I've discovered drunk dialing is never a good idea! Also, doing hair and makeup whilst drunk is probably not a good idea either.

    I just read your "Who is P?" page and discovered we have a lot in common. You might enjoy these websites:
