Platinum Glo Airbrush Spray Tanning Review & Giveaway!

Platinum Glo Airbrush Tanning's "Tan Can" is a quick and easy way to achieve that beautiful tanned glow anytime and anywhere.

There are plenty of at-home spray tanning products out there, and I've used quite a few, but I've found this one to be my personal favorite.

The biggest thing I noticed right away is that it smells wonderful! Usually I hate the smell spray tans leave on my skin, and it's one of my biggest complaints. Platinum Glo's Tan Can reminds me of the smell of Hawaiian Tropic products that I used to use back in the day. Just a nice beachy scent.



  • You start by having exfoilated skin, free from perfumes or lotions.
  • I also put on latex gloves just to ensure I didn't get any on the palms of my hands.
  • Hold the can 8 to 10 inches away from you skin and begin spraying. 
  • Keep the can moving slowly and let the mist coat your skin. 
  • I then used my hand (covered by the latex gloves) to blend the spray evenly over my skin. I moved my hand in small, circular motions until I felt it was well blended.
The whole process is quick, easy and dries super fast.
I also didn't shower for 4-6 hours after application.

Here is a photo of my legs (left leg is 2 hours after application and nothing on my right leg).
You can keep coating your skin to achieve your desired tan. As time went on, my skin became a little darker than what you see here.

I am so happy with the results. No orange legs (as have happened with some at-home tanning products in the past).

Platinum Glo uses a purple base, not green, and that's why you won't get that orange, oompa-loompa look ;)


The "Tan Can" is currently $30 plus $3 shipping. They are working on their website but do accept Paypal, so if you visit their Facebook page HERE, you can order your own "Tan Can". 

Platinum Glo Airbrush Tanning is also offering a "Tan Can" in a giveaway! YAY!

Chichanella Bella Vintage Inspired Swimwear Review & Giveaway

Chichanella Bella Vintage Inspired Swimwear has got to be the Ca-utest baby and child swimwear that I have ever seen!

Chichanella Bella is described as "whimsical swimwear reminiscent of a simpler time. Influences from the 20's to the 50's show throughout creating a nostalgic feel. Soft ruffles, hand rolled flowers, adorable bows, polka dots, and stripes accompany swimsuit names like Pink Taffy, Lifeguard Lu Lu, Cotton Candy, and Seaside Sweetheart."
This is the Rowboat Rosie Swimsuit. 
This two piece silhouette features lots of unique detail! The top detail has white stitching on the dark navy fabric, white buttons imported from Italy, beautiful ruffles and cap sleeves providing extra coverage. The bottoms have a higher waist again with beautiful details like the top showing off white stitching, buttons and ruffles along with mock pockets on the tush! The navy fabric is just beautiful with a custom navy dot for a perfect match! Matching bonnet has a navy dotted band resting over the soft elastic opening and a double ruffle brim.

I'm so in love with suit! In fact, I'm pretty much obsessed with all the swimwear from Chichanella Bella!
The sizes start at 12M, and quite a few go up to size 10; which is fabulous because I can't image putting another designer's swimwear on my child! That's how much I LOVE this line!
The swimwear also has a UPF of 50, so you're not only getting the cuteness factor; you're getting protection as well!

Chichanella Bella is also offering their Sunkissed Sweetheart two piece for a giveaway!!! YAY!

The Deli At Pecan Square Review

Family, Food & Fun!
The Deli At Pecan Square (1210 Nanticoke Rd. Unit #13 
Salisbury, Maryland 21801)
I recently visited The Deli At Pecan Square for dinner with my family. As soon as you walk in, you immediately feel that warm, welcoming feeling.  The atmosphere is bright and cheerful and the decor is pleasing to the eye.
We sat down, strapped the twins into the high chairs, put Grace in a booster seat, met our wonderful server and started to look over the menu.
 The Deli At Pecan Square serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, 7 days a week from 9-9 Mon-Fri and 8-9 Sat & Sun.
They also offer catering, carryout and delivery.
We ordered chicken fingers with french fries for the kids, my husband ordered a Greek salad and I ordered their made-from-scratch goulash. I was born and raised in Northwest Pennsylvania, so I grew up on goulash and was pretty excited to see it on Maryland's Eastern Shore. 
The portions are wonderfully HUGE! They definitively don't skimp when it comes to portion size.
The salads were colorful and crisp, the garlic bread was wonderful and the goulash was just like mom makes. Everything was delicious!
The best way I can describe the atmosphere while eating, is that (coming from an Italian family), it reminded me of big family dinners where everyone was around the table enjoying the food and each other's company.
There definitely is a feeling of family there and I absolutely love that.

We ordered their homemade strawberry pretzel salad (another favorite of mine growing up in PA) and had to get it to go since we were so full from dinner. The pretzel salad was perfect! I must say I was a little jealous, as I think I make the best strawberry pretzel salad around ;) 

So if you live on DelMarVa and want a nice place to take your family for breakfast, lunch or dinner, please stop by The Deli At Pecan Square. You can also find them HERE on Facebook. 

Let's all support our locally-owned businesses to keep our communities thriving!
