The only thing certain in life is change.

One of the most factual quotes I’ve heard in a while. With summer coming to a close, we end a chapter in our book of life and begin the next: fall. It wasn’t the best summer of my life, but I choose to remember the tiny, special moments. Like the time my friend Kaley and I went shopping for succulents in the Florida summer heat. We visited a local cactus farm and swooned at all the baby cacti and succulents. While we weren’t in the desert, the heat was pumped to the max and must have been in the 100s. We had the best time carefully selecting each plant and welcomed them into our homes. Friends like Kaley are far and few between, and she entered my life at the most perfect timing. Have you ever met someone who you feel like you’ve known for years?! That was Kaley. We share a love for fashion, beauty and all things wanderlust. In addition to being a singer/songwriter and blogger extrodinaire, she is a cosmetologist! We both agree on the mindset of practising self love through pamper sessions (manis, pedis, spray tans etc.) and spent the summer treating ourselves to these indulgences. I mean, there is something to be said about a girlfriend who will drop everything to unwind with you over a pedi and coffee, am I right?!

One of our favorite activities this summer was to get spray tans. I know what you’re thinking – you live in Florida, just head to the beach! Actually, us Floridians know better than anyone the harmful affects of sun damage. Aside from premature wrinkles (which is horrible enough, btw) skin cancer ain’t pretty – so we believe in sunscreen and lots of it! To achieve the perfect glow (and avoid an orange, streaky mess) we hit Palm Beach Tan. Palm Beach Tan offers top of the line spray tanning systems, such as Mystic Tan and VersaSpa which last up to 7 days! Basically, we had the best of both worlds, beach getaways and (healthy) bronzed skin. If you’ve never had a spray tan – I highly recommend it! I know I will continue to receive spray tans throughout fall to maintain a healthy glow!

Now, who wants to receive 3-months worth of spray tans on me? I’ve teamed up with Palm Beach Tan to give one lucky reader a 3-month Palm Beach Tan Membership and a $150 rental credit at Rent The Runway! Y’all that is over $400 worth of fabulousness in one package. Additionally, five second-place winners will receive a free sunbed/or sunless tanning session from the Palm Beach salon of your choice. Simply enter the giveaway widget below for your chance to win!

    i have had a spray tan before, about ten years ago. it was never a perfect tan, but it was better than using a bed. i remember it being really cold, really streaky and really expensive! but i’m sure it’s gotten better since then. i used a different, local company, so i’m sure that may have been a factor.

    I love the first few days after the spray tan! I don’t find they last as long as they are promised to, but they are great for events. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I haven’t had a spray tan in years. I didn’t like how they wore off unevenly.
