Tan in December

My favorite confidence booster - a good tan. (But hello hi, its Winter. So good luck with that.) There is also something about this time of year that makes me feel a little blah and sluggish - maybe its all the candy and eating and drinking. (Probably not though.) Sometimes at this time of the year we are so excited about having a fresh start that our current state of mind is...
