So, it’s summer. Which means every girl in America is going to be competing for the best tan. If you’re like me, you’re not going to win that battle.

Also, I don’t get out of bed for anything under 15% – you might as well not even run a promotion at that point. I’ve done a little research on my favorite sites and here are the sales I would recommend. If you’re going to take time out of your weekend to shop online and forgo an hour or two in the sun, you want to use your time wisely!
