Are you a TANSXL?

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

I love the summer so much. I love that there is no school. No miserable rush getting cranky children out the door on time for the school bus (invariably wearing my pajamas… while other parents seem immaculately groomed.)

Ironically I have been waking up really early. I love to get up when everyone else is sleeping, make coffee – and go and sit outside. I have a lovely deck that overlooks the river where I live. It just sets the tone of the day to be by the water, breathe some fresh air, feel the peace. Before the general craziness invariably starts.

Work has been so much fun lately. We are launching a new series of products under a new label called “TANSXL”. We came up with this new lifestyle brand with our dear friend Derek Saathoff. You might ask “What is a Tansexual”, “who is a Tansexual?” A Tansexual is someone who likes to be healthy and take care of themselves. They would never sit in the sun just for the sake of tanning – they take care of their skin, they want to look healthy and youthful as long as possible. A Tansexual is a glamorous person who wants to have fun. They travel, love sports and going to the gym, they have an active lifestyle and want to party but feel healthy at all costs. A Tansexual does meaningful work but feels no shame in looking and feeling fabulous all the time.

The new products are a week out from our big launch party. The first new products are a mega-hydrating self-tanner that comes in a revolutionary new spray bottle. I am so excited because it is just so easy to use. I really feel like some poor Tansexual who is in Mykonos for a month and unable to find a half way decent spray tanning salon – could be safely trusted to spray themselves with a safe, good outcome. Lovely, natural color, very sexy, and super hydrated skin.

The other new product is so exciting for us – something so different from what we usually do. We had a great idea to make a bottled cocktail that is actually healthy for you and doesn’t leave you with a hangover. It is a delicious Brazilian drink, with all organic ingredients from Brazil. Low calorie and healthy….based on a caphirinia. I cannot wait for everyone to taste it and experience it. It has been so enjoyable talking about all the details with the people in Brazil, taste testing ( J), playing around with different designs. We feel really great about these new products because they promote a safe and healthy lifestyle – and definitely a fun, sexy, playful lifestyle.

So this is the question: Are you a TANSXL?

I’ll give you an example of famous TANSXLs… David Beckham is a very famous one. God only knows if it was true, but all the British trashy magazines said he had an affair with a spray tan technician – and god knows he has to get up early in the morning to trot around in tiny shorts.

Pippa Middleton – tan, sexy, healthy….don’t you love all those pics of her and her sister in white bikini’s swanning around on someone’s yacht.

Simon Cowell. I think he is a TANSXL. Always tan – always in the gym….maintains those pecs ….definitely TANSXL. Most of the Kardashian family. Very tan, always striding around at dawn sucking down those diet shakes and pills – looking gorgeous.

People who are NOT TANSXL:

The cast of The Jersey Shore.

The cast of Jerseylicious.

Questionable TANSXLs: The cast of “Dancing with the Stars”. They definitely have the fake tan thing going, they definitely are in great shape – but the tan couldn’t pass the test in a jet set location. I mean if one of those DWTS girls got herself on a yacht in Ibiza – she would be dropped off at the next port once the yacht owner saw the terrible orange skid marks she left on the towels and high thread count linens. A TANSXL knows the fake tan has to be undetectably fake. A TANSXL intends to be seen naked and must look good.

I would be very interested if anyone has notable examples of famous TANSXLs. Please send me your thoughts to Sally@brazilbronze.com. Also – if you are a gorgeous, glowing TANSXL – please send me your picture and a little about yourself.

school is out!

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Yesterday was the last day of school for my children. Don’t you remember that wonderful feeling back when you were a little kid? The whole summer stretched out awaiting you. The first day of summer vacation – the most luxurious and happiest of sensations.And today we are headed out from New York on a cruise to the Bahamas. We are all super excited to kick back and enjoy some summer fun – and have a little break from city life. I am grateful to leave my cell phone behind and just take a break.

For the past year I have been spending a lot of time teaching Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp – and this is the first time in a whole year I am getting ten days break from teaching. Ironically my sick brain thought “Oh – when I am on the cruise I will have time to play around with some new choreography  for my class….” No, no, no!!  I really want to resist the urge to think of anything work related. Sometimes the brain and the body just need space. A chance not to leap around. A time for the thoughts to settle. A time for the phone not to ring. In this new age of androids and iphones… it seems like some alarm or alert is going off every minute: a new text, a new voicemail, one more email in the inbox. Sometimes when I fall asleep at night I still see the wretched phone screen imprinted on my brain.

I am looking forward to swimming in the sea. Eating long, leisurely dinners in good company – with no worry of having to leap out of bed early. I am looking forward to running on the deck and doing yoga. I am looking forward to having a little time to think or not think – as opposed to having to think up an idea and put it on paper in three minutes. I am looking forward to space for inspiration.

I hope you are all finding a little time to have that “school is out!” feeling. Enjoy the summer while you can…

sunshine!

I love how Memorial day came and Summer just flipped a switch on us. I just adore this time of year. It is so fun at Brazil Bronze to see all the peeps who just get tan in the summer, catching up on a year of gossip. I love my home by the river, it is heaven in the summer…I love swimming in the pool while it is still cool like a lake, and sitting for hours by the water with my friends, hearing the children splash and laugh. I love the heat and craziness of the city and the grass and water at home.

I had really hoped to turn down the dial and have a quiet summer – and hopefully that will happen but we have a lot going on. Our big excitement is we have a lot of really juicy new products. TanSexual is getting ready to launch and right now we are trying to find the perfect sexy place for our TanSexual launch party. I was thinking a lovely city roof with a view – or my dream come true would be a roof with a pool – I have this whole vision of having synchronized swimming – girls in flowery bathing caps doing a kind of Buzby Berkely style number. Please god, let someone with a roof hear my prayer.

Everyone who knows me – knows I have a thing for ballroom dancing. I have loved competitive dancesport since I saw the movie “Strictly Ballroom” in 1994 – and ever since then I have consciously molded all my fashion and aesthetic choices around one of the enigmatic heroines of that movie “tina sparkle”. I am really into it, I love to go to the studio and practice, I love to travel to competitions – for me the music, the visuals, the relationships, the emotion and drama – are food for my creativity. It is such a sexy and beautiful art form. One of the things I love about it is the aspect of transformation. On the dance floor you are your own creation. You can be who you want to be on any given day.

I had really wanted to create a product for dancers. My partner Joy and I have gotten together with my good friends and teachers Jose Decamps and Joanna Zacharewicz and we have made a whole new instant bronzer (a self tanner that instantly gives color, but is also sweat proof, and looks exotic on the dance floor). The new product is smoking hot.  I always like to have fun with new products – and for this one I want to make a music video – to show off how sexy and dramatic this self tanner is. I think this is really going to be something cool and different. Right now we are just finalizing the packaging and pretty soon the new product will be ready. It is going to be called “Coco Cha Cha “Sexy Instant Self Tanner for Dancers”. Don’t you love it?

So – that is a whole new thing to work on.

Life in the world of Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp has been super crazy. We had the great fortune to have a Groupon Sale and sold over 4000 class passes. As a result I have been teaching my class A LOT 🙂 I actually love it. Getting the chance to meet many different women, and to have the opportunity to really have an impact on women’s body image issues is HUGE to me. On Wednesday we had 100 people in classes, and it really was the fun part of my day. It is a joy to just get in the studio with a bunch of fun loving women and dance and exercise – and laugh. We laugh a lot. I recently shot some lovely pictures with the insancely amazing photographer Cyrus Marshall – here I am as Lady Chardonnay. She is quite fabulous 😉

We are gearing up for a big show on Saturday June 18th – it is going to be Paper Dolls first birthday and to celebrate we are having a benefit for “Next Step” an amazing foundation that does research and rehab for people recovering from spinal injuries.Joy and I were just talking about how we want to really focus on raising money for charities and causes that are important to us. Life can pass you by in the blink of an eye – and I really want to feel that the work I do every day has meaning. To have positive interactions with people and to work towards positive change – and to have fun and take delight in the every day .

School is nearly out. Unleash your inner kid and enjoy the summer. Here is a mantra from one of my recent classes “You put the POP into POPsicle!” Hell yes……
