I am going to answer all your burning (no pun intended) questions and I sure hope you are more at ease when booking your Spray Tan.

I was asked to do Louise’s hair and makeup for her big day on the 31st December 2014 at the beautiful Palala Boutique Hotel on the border of Botswana. There are definitely worse places to welcome in the New Year! It was an amazing weekend of love and laughter.
