After I shower I take a look at my tan lines in the mirror from being on the beach for two days. All though it slightly burns from lack of reapplication of sunscreen, I like it. The paleness of winter is finally being coated with some colour on my skin which means more sunny days at the beach or just being outdoors. Having tan lines can also mean that I have visited somewhere sunny and warm in the tropics like in the caribbean which is usually an awesome time.
I dislike looking pale though some people prefer it, but being a tad darker just makes me feel like a kid again. I used to play outdoors all day in the summer time from swimming, biking, or just going to the park therefore I used to always have tanned skin.

I think this is the lightest I’ve been for I haven’t really been in the sun for two years since my trip to the Philippines.
Now that I’ve been in a sun this weekend, my slight tan makes me smile.
