Smart Summer Love

I was asked to be part of Sun Smart's Love Your Body Blog Carnival . So to celebrate Summer coming around the corner & my love for a good floppy hat and crazily shaped sunnies I made this wee stop motion movie. Hope it gets you in the mood to love your summer and your skin!

I've always been fair, as a teenager I longed for a golden tan but the kiwi sun always got the better of me. By the time I was in my early 20's I'd finally learnt my lesson. I'm never going to get a natural tan! I'd gone through enough after sun lotion, painful showers, sleeping sessions lying on my back & embarrassing tomato face moments I'd had enough! Now I embrace my lily white outer layer & if being sun smart means I can wear a gigantic 60's inspired floppy sunhat and some sweet cat eye sunnies like the ones in the video then I'm all for that! Special thanks goes to Lauren for being a super smart smiley model!
