Bronzers for Dark Skin

Bronzers for Dark Skin

“Bronzers for dark skin?”

But then life got in the way: I had an event in Atlanta, I started a Summer Beauty video series, my nephew came to visit for three weeks (ahhhh, I miss him!) and I played auntie taking almost everywhere he wanted to go, then I gallivanted around Europe for almost three weeks, came back home for a short week, then flew to Georgia for a family wedding. AND IT’S SUMMER so I, of course, want to make sure I’m maximizing the heck out of it. So I have been trying to play catch-up with so many things for months.
