What does every girl want for Christmas? Bling? Nope. A nice fur coat? No sir. We want fake tans that will be the envy of all our pasty-looking friends this winter. I shouldn’t mock – this is actually something I probably would have bought had I been a teenager in 1952. All you need is a socket, and a tube of SPF 5,000 and you’re ready to go.
