OK so I wanted to do a post on makeup because you will be surprised at how many companies still test on animals and I wanted to show you a list of all the companies that you can buy cruelty free makeup from. To be on this list companies have had to fill in a declaration form stating their manufacturing plant and listing the items in their product, this is then investigated and from there they get on the list and WE ARE ON THE LIST.

Lets Talk About PayPal
Lets talk about PayPal because I LOVE IT. Have you checked it out recently they have seriously upped their game in the online payment transactions. I have always used PayPal because it is recognized around the world as safe so it was the best decision at the time we started out for getting customers to trust shopping with us, but they have seriously up graded and im loving it.
If your a business owner its FREE to join so why wouldn't you, Here in NZ if you join DPS or other internet payment programs they charge you monthly and fees , its criminal and PayPal has an invoicing system that creates amazing templates with your details and also lets customer push a button and part pay or in full whether they have a PayPal account or not.

Fake tanning and Pregnancy
Ok so I just read this article and Im always asked about tanning if your pregnant and while long term studies have not been done there has been one test done in the 1970's on DHA inhaling it and ingesting it which this person never found.
When I started BROWNALLYEAR I researched every day till late at night for around 2 full years before building a website and feeling confident that I was doing the right thing. While the study is against everything in in my body (animal testing) this was done in the 1970's and they used rabbits and mice to inhale and ingest DHA with absolutely no side affects. After death and searching for necrosis (damaged or changed cell tissue) NOTHING was found. So while the American FDA says they dont approve that it is because they haven't done the research and even the scientist isn't sure.
SO in conclusion IMHO (in my humble opinion) I feel that following a bus or truck with your window down while pregnant is WAY more harmful than one spray tan, but each of us is different and I always recommend that each pregnant women conduct her own research and come to her OWN conclusion whether having a tan is best for her.
BROWNALLYEAR has extensive knowledge on tanning please ask us any questions you might have or click the link below to find what we know.
The article below is the one I found today
Off to Samoa to do Business (wink wink) and check out the Island life.
I tanned myself before going in hopes that I would blend in but on the 2nd day of being in Samoa our taxi driver was explaining they have bananas that are called Palagi Bananas meaning white and skinny and hence that name became mine. While everyone was laughing I was quietly going over and over the "skinny" bit because ive never been called 'skinny' but yes to the white bit, in Samoa I am a the skinny white girl hence the Palagi Banana nick name I got and I happy to stick with any name that is attached with the skinny and white bit even thought I tanned myself thoroughly before leaving.
Advice to fellow travelers to Samoa, dont even bother with taking tanning products because for one, no one cares and two, you are still going to look white. Have a tan before leaving will help you ease into your bikini. Swimming will be a constant and the intense heat will keep you wet if your not swimming so looking glamorous is just not an option and actually quite liberating.

Dark Girls Tan Too
People often ask me if dark skinned girls get tans too and yes just like makeup that they wear to highlight the skin so does getting a spray tan.
Having a spray tan over your already tanned skin does give it a natural glow and highlights the skin tone making it look photoshopped, so for any darker skinned girls give it a try you just might like it.
Removing Built up Tan on your Feet
Built up tan on feet sucks and looks awful. How it got like that is from over tanning and wearing shoes with sweaty feet. Feet dont really need as much tan as the rest but here is a remedy to removing that ugly patchy tan.
Make up a batch of Baking Soda and lemon juice paste wipe it onto your feet and exfoliate gently and leave on for five minute then wash off with warm water.
Marks on feet are from socks, 1st photo was taken the day before, second was next day when I actually scrubbed. I used Baking soda and lemon juice and left it on for around 5 minutes then scrubbed and rinsed. For extra stubborn stains the White Magic is a nano sponge and can get those extra little stubborn bits off but be WARNED it says on the packet NO NOT put on skin. I have used this on my feet and it was magic but it does leave your skin a little raw so put some coconut oil on after. THIS IS NOT for the body as you will end up with burn marks and I dont even like to endorse this sponge for fear some of you will go for gold but it really does get the stubborn bits off your feet if you are a tana'hoic - so be warned it is NOT for the body.
Moisturising Creme used to be the hydrating buzz but now everyone prefers Body Oils and why?
They key thing about Oils is that the actives are present at a much higher concentration as they’re not diluted, so they have a more tangible effect on the skin they generally contain less additives than creams and are absorbed easily.
The simple purpose of a Cream is to hydrate and protect the skin, which is also great depending on what you like what your skin condition is and why you are moisturising.
Why do we ask you to hydrate your skin after a spray tan?

Did you know that at Christmas time some elderly are extremely lonely?
So this Christmas Ive decided to buy gifts for the residents at Aria Gardens Albany. When you book a tan with us you can have the option to add one dollar to support this. Gifts will be just something small like stationary a crossword book, soap, hankie, hand cream, cookies etc, just something they can open up on Christmas day. If anyone wants to bring in gifts to be wrapped for them this also would be amazing. I will update on Christmas Day with the items purchased and given.
NZ bans animal testing
BY: ZOE MELNYK
New Zealand recently passed a bill banning animal testing and other types of animal cruelty. Talk of banning animal testing around the world has posed as a controversial debate for decades between two different interpretations of the words “mankind was delegated to have dominion over the animals.” On one hand are cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies who believe that animals should be surrogates for human suffering, and on the other are those who realize that humans have the responsibility to protect the freedom and safety of anything living that cannot speak for itself.
According to an article from Humane Society International, there’s an estimated 115 million animals that are used for testing and research purposes globally each year. This includes placing animals under physical pain and distress, with results that may or may not be applicable to people. The regulations on animal testing are also blurry and undefined, so the exact number of animals and the experiments used are oftentimes unknown and undocumented.

How to TAN your back
Struggling to tan your back at home? Sick of asking your BF, Mom, Sister, Brother, Friend to tan your back, well check out these ideas for making sure you are a 'self tanner'.
1. Get your trusty Velvet Blending Glove a hair brush or shower loafer a rubber band and tie it it tightly at the bottom.
2. Hand towel or glad wrap into a strip then put your tan in the middle and proceed like you are towel drying your back. Glad wrap is a great blender and not waste of product where a towel you may need to add a little more product.
3. In store bought purpose tanning wand, these come in different styles.
The Simple Way To Tan Your Back - Reach Those Difficult Bits With Ease! Suitable for use with all creams, lotions, mousses and sprays, our best-selling back applicator has become the accessory of choice for thousands of customers.
1. They last about a week: this varies from person to person but generally a spray tan will last 4-8 days
2. A spray tan won't wash off: Tanning products are meant to fade slowly as your top layer of skin regenerates so you won't be able to simply scrub it off yourself.
3. Apply moisturiser everyday: Keep your skin hydrated daily is the best way to help keep your tan longer and fade evenly.
4. It will get darker as the day goes on: Most spray tans have a bronzer in them so they are instantly brown but as the spray tan develops you will get darker as the day goes on, when you wash your tan will be the perfect colour.
5. Put nail polish on your toes: If your toes are bare then putting any coat of of nail varnish will protect your toes from being stained a brown horrible looking colour, if you already have a manicure with polish don't worry the tan will wipe right off.
6. Exfoliate: Only the day before your tan as this removes any dead skin and by doing it the day before lets your skin return to its natural pH level.
7. Dry skin: If you have very dry skin in patches you can rub moisturiser over these areas at least an hours before arriving for your tan.
8. Sitting on the toilet: After your spray tan when sitting on a toilet you may want to line it with a bit of paper as you will leave a brown mark on the seat, this doesn't effect your tan but makes the toilet look a bit yicky.
9. Wear your birthday suit: If you are getting a tan for a holiday or to wear a bikini then we recommend wearing your birthday suit, the last thing you want to happen with your new tan is put on your bikini and find that you have big white lines showing.
10: Pat dry: To really care for your tan, after each shower just pat dry to help preserve the skin.
Just imagine being born symmetrical, proportionately together with great hair and skin.... Just add a personality and you have a recipe for success, for everyone else there's tanning, makeup, heels, clothes and your good heart, and to be honest if your beautiful on the outside and have an ugly heart, your just ugly all round.
