That Time I Spray Tanned and Looked Like an Oompa Loompa


I did this to myself today…


Yes dear readers, THAT is a spray tan gone bad.

Very, very bad.

I asked for level 1, as in, the lightest possible spray tan. Not only did it go Puerto Rican on me, but it decided to put most of the spray on my face!

And here’s the kicker…

I’m going the Mom’s Night Out movie premier in L.A. on Tuesday. THIS TUESDAY.

(Can’t see the trailer for Moms Night Out, click HERE)

Are you laughing yet? Every time my husband sees me he starts cracking up. My daughter said to me, “Well mom, you don’t have to worry about us calling you gray hair anymore, we’ll just call you orange face.”


Now for the good news: I washed my face and it seemed to take off most of the orange. I think it’s going to be alright…I think.

If you want to see how it turns out, follow me on Instagram or Facebook because I’ll be posting pics of the red carpet premier, and I’d love for you to follow along. :)

I’m really done posting now. No more for a good long while. K? K.

Alrighty friends, catch ya later!


Oompa Loompa, Sarah Mae

    LOL! I love your daughter’s comment! Glad most of it came off. Enjoy the premier! I love this movie!!!

    I so needed this laugh today! Thank you. My mom and I did this years ago since we were heading on vacation together and we looked RIDICULOUS! I have never, ever scrubbed so hard with every known concoction trying to lessen the “orange”. We still laugh. Thank you for tickling that memory. I hope you have a wonderful time and that you are a little “de-oompa loompafied” by tomorrow!

    Totally reminded me of the Friends episode where Ross got the same spray tan. Except worse! I’ve heard lemon juice helps if you scrub it on yourself?

    Hi Sarah, I just purchased the Ultimate Bundle and would really like a copy of your Mama Tips, but I didn’t see a link for your e-mail address anywhere. Can you let me know where to find it? Thanks so much! I’m excited about the e-course you offer as well!

    Unimaginable and unbelievable. I am Tracy Adams…

    and i have a good news to share to the entire world. Do you need your ex

    husband or lover urgently? I want to tell you that you need not to worry

    because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or similar to

    such situation because there is always a hope and a solution to all

    problem. There is a great spell caster called Great DR OGBODU who can

    really solve your problem. Getting my lover back is what i can’t imagine

    but when I was losing Jackson, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly

    but my Aunty told me about this spell caster who also helped her on the

    internet. I thought it won’t work but i just tried to give this man a

    chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone rang. Jackson

    was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back,

    the spell caster opened him up to know how much I loved and needed him.

    This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up his eyes to know

    how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old

    situation to try him because he will help you and make things be the way it

    ought to be. If you have such problem or similar to this, please contact

    him on his email

    thank you Great DR OGBODU, and may your gods reward you for your good
