Overdose - Beauty Addict

Monday, June 11, 2007


Well, it's been nearly a week, and that's usually when I start getting all sorts of comments and emails along the lines of "UR NEGLECTING UR WEBISTE, U HORRID UNPROFESSIONAL TOAD," so I figured I'd give you a bit of an update.

I have spent the past week in the hospital with an undiagnosed ailment. It seems all the self-tanners from Fake Bake Month began to build up in my system, resulting in a persistent orange cast that was visible even in the dark. Everything had gone orange, even the whites of my eyes. It baffled the doctors.

Ahhh, I kid, I kid.

But seriously, I was a little overloaded on tanners - buying them, testing them, writing about them, scrubbing them off - that I needed a little break. On top of that, I spent a bit of time reorganizing my beauty stash, which entailed several trips to Target and Bed Bath & Beyond, and extensive alphabetizing. (Just kidding on that last part.)

So here's the latest. While I was feeling all tannered-out last week, it seems there are still quite a few worthy entries for Fake Bake Month - including Dove, Jergens, Shiseido, and Famous Dave's - so it will continue. I also owe you a post on Self Tanning Essentials, and the end ranking of all the tanners together. So we'll still be "glowing" this June.

Secondly: later this month I'll be holding the first-ever Beauty Addict contest, in which you'll have the chance to win some of the aforementioned beauty stash, so stay tuned!

Regular posting will resume later today. Thanks for sticking around while I recovered from self tanner OD!
