St Tropez Spraycation.

Today I did something I never thought I would do - I had a spray tan. I was invited down to the Westfield shopping centre in Shepherds Bush where St Tropez begun their UK Spraycation tour today.

The luxury beach-themed pop-up is travelling all over the UK, bringing cities a glimpse of faux sunshine over the next month.

I don't use fake tan and I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Friends told me to wear baggy clothes so I trekked across to West London wearing trackies and a baggy jumper and no make-up - something I also thought I would never do.

I was whisked into one of their mock beach hut tanning booths and given a brief consultation on my skin type and what sort of a tan I was after. I asked for the most natural colour going.

Products in the tanning booth.

Then came the more embarrassing part, off came my clothes and on went some really rather attractive paper knickers. You can leave on your underwear if you want to but I figured I'd rather not travel home in wet undies. You have to put on these odd sticky shoes before you go onto the platform.

I was sprayed front to back and then once again. It was quick and I honestly had to do nothing except worry about being practically naked infront of a stranger but I'm sure she's seen much better and much worse.

Tan line!

Even though I smell like a walking bottle of fake tan, the experience is something I would do again because it is so simple and the results are instant. Instead of looking tired and pale, I now look refreshed and as if I've been lounging under the sun somewhere much more exotic than London for the past week.
