Okay, dry those eyes 🥺 I have some news.

Since posting that I was leaving, about a dozen people have reached out to me to buy TanTale or ask for specialist tan training. I’m flattered that so many of you also see how special this business is, or want to learn all my secret tips and tricks to getting the perfect tan 💕.

I’m pretty excited about the possibility of TanTale continuing and growing to be everything I’ve ever envisioned.

That’s all I can say for now, I’m hoping to have more news for you soon…and also to reopen my books for appointments in April and beyond.

Stay Golden ☀️
Stay Healthy 😷

See you in the studio soon!

XO - Shelly



You have exactly 3 weeks to hop online, book your next appointment and experience the TanTale difference 💫

If you’re new around here, choose ‘New Client Tan.’ It’ll give us the extra time to have a chat, examine your skin and choose the perfection solution.

Bridal perfection! Swipe to see those perfectly tanned hands 🙌.

There’s a special technique to getting the realist sun-kissed bridal tan, and it’s one of the things I’m most proud of at TanTale.

Also how cool is this photo by @wild_flwer_photography? Damn we have some amazing photographers in this town. Can I hire you all?!

And to Mr + Mrs Kelly 🤍 A lifetime of happiness and many more photos like this. 🥂


Tans on darker skin will even out your skin tone, give you an all over subtle glow & make you feel ✨AH-MA-ZING ✨

Think of it like foundation for your entire body. 🤩

Contrary to popular belief tans aren’t just for blonde hair, fair skinned gals. They’re fir EVERY body.

PS - congrats on the new role @_tamaramaria & @ashmullen_fitness ❤️


Yep. It’s true (no April fools joke, promise)

I’ve been delaying posting this as it kind of kills me a little 🥺 to say goodbye to this business I’ve worked so hard to create, and to say goodbye to all my amazing clients. I’ve got some big things on the horizon - we’re moving overseas! ✈️.

All your burning questions answered below 🔥

▪️Where are you going? — TBH, we’re not entirely sure yet, but somewhere in the States 🇺🇸. We should know more in a few weeks. My dream is to end up in the Mountains (either in NZ or somewhere else!)🏔

▪️When are you leaving? — last tans will be 1 April, that’s close to the end of the tax year, so it works out well 😜. We’re not entirely sure when will be travelling, as we’re still trying to figure things out. It’ll be in the next few months though.

▪️What about my tan membership or prepaid package? — All memberships will finish the end of March, all prepaid tan clients will be contacted individually.

▪️Are you selling TanTale? — At this stage no, but if you know someone who is interested, please send them my way ✨

▪️Will I be able to purchase Norvell products once you are gone? — I’m no longer importing products into NZ. I have limited stock available, so be sure to stock up before I close 🛍. This is above and beyond the best self tanner you will find on the market.

▪️Are you taking Dixie with you? 🐶 — yep, she’s part of the family (her flight is almost 2-3x more expensive than ours though 😳)

▪️Are your kids excited? 👨‍👨‍👦‍👦— YES! We have lots of adventures planned. It’s time to explore a new backyard for a while. This move is a family decision. Sometimes you just gotta leap and hope it all works out. 😘

Cheers to all the brides who have made it this far! It’s going to be a stunning day ☀️ and I’m thinking of each and everyone of you about to walk down the isle today.

What virus? It’s wedding day 🥂 💪

Also…I couldn’t choose just one photo of Abby + Torkil’s wedding to show you, because I love all of these by @auburn.photography.

I’m not a car person, but this classic white vintage car looks so ace 🔥 Their tans look perfect, the colour of their dresses next to the greenery 🌿is spot on, that bridal SQUAD 🥰…and of course Abby is a stunner (but you all already know that 😉).

Gosh how I love being a small part of your big day. 🤍

For all those on the fence…

You don’t need a pregnant tummy, newborn babe or wedding veil to get a tan or professional photos taken. Get them because you are a goddess…RIGHT NOW. 💫

You’ll look back at these photos and think…😍 why didn’t I do this earlier?

Need a photographer recommendation? I know quite a few in Palmy. Need a place to get a killer (realistic!) looking glow? Well, I gotcha covered there too. 😉


Introducing the beautiful Abby- I think many of you might already know her 😍.

When you come in for a tan you usually fit into one of two categories. Bridal / special event 👰‍♀️ or everyday normal tan 💃🏼. Abby spans both, and I couldn’t be more excited for her big day. She’s a beacon of light ✨everytime she comes into the studio and I’m so grateful to gotten to know her over these past few months.

Love this photo of her and Rex! 🐶

Book online at TanTaleSunless.com for your next tan. Special event or everyday…you never need an excuse to feel good. 😉


Hello weekend!

Here’s to feeling healthy (right now), all the beautiful brides this weekend and big things to come ⭐️


The prep is half the fun! 🥂

My biggest tip to enjoy your big day…TRIAL ➡️The makeup, the hair, the tan…and yes the wine (why not?!)

@francisworthington2022 Congratulations! I love this photo - you look gorgeous, and your crew so much fun 🤩


Sunday ✨ - the day for sleep ins, loungin’ in your undies and planning for the week to come. 🗓 (cue, book your tan online)

I’ve had the pleasure of tanning @rebekkahleigh_ (and her sis + mum) a few times over the past year. 💕 My days of @nzifbb comps may be over, but it brings me joy to watch their journeys.

And if I’m completely honest, glasses of wine, cheese boards 🧀& Carmel slices bring me joy too 😆 (thanks Marlborough, I’ve indulged in ALL that this weekend).

Happy Sunday Babes!


The perfect tan, for the perfect day 🎆 5.11.21 🎇
(Gotta love a bride who loves fireworks as much as I do!)

I sent Aimee (the bride) an email the other day to let her know how much I enjoyed meeting her and the crew. She had such a positive outlook on life, even when it threw her curveballs.

I’ve had a few of my own curveballs lately, so I’m trying to follow Aimee’s lead and focus on the good. 🙏

One big positive of TanTale…connecting with women from all walks of life, who inspire me on the daily. Grateful 😇


The reviews, don’t lie. 🖤

If your thinking about coming in or if you’re a bit nervous, hop on google or Facebook and check them out.

And thank you to everyone for spreading the love. You all mean so much to me, and the fact that you take the time to write a review…it means the world to me. 🌎



That look 👀, that tan 🔥

I love so many of Megan’s photos, but this one is hands down my fav. I’m not sure what it is, but I just love it. 💕 Yep definitely the look on her face.

@megpsheridan Thanks for bringing the entourage in for a tan party - I had a great time getting to know your crew. 🥂


COVID - I’m waiting for you with my gun 🔫 (and my 3 vaccines!) 💥 💥💥

Just thought I’d let y’all know my contingency plan for when (not if) I get it.

1. I’ll let all my clients who are booked, know right away. If Chelsea’s available, she will cover my tans while I am isolating.

2. If she’s not available, then I’ve contacted two other trusted spray tan artists in town who are prepared to take on TanTale clients while we are closed. Don’t worry, they’ll be using the same great solution I do 😉. BABES SUPPORT BABES ❤️🙌💋 and I’ll do everything I can honour existing appointments and keep my brides happy.

However, sometimes things don’t go to plan, and there may be some unexpected cancellations. Thank you in advance for understanding.

But….let’s not think about that right now, K? Let’s just keep getting our boosters, 💉 scanning in, washing hands 🧼 and wearing masks. We’ll get through this together.

PS - in case you’re wandering I wasn’t at the vet school on Friday. Phew 😮‍💨


Long weekend vibes! 🍹

It’s summer, it’s hot…show off your gorgeous UV free tan in something fun. ✌️


Happy wedding anniversary to Chelsea (the other half of TanTale). 💕 She’s not only an expert spray tan artist, but also my sounding board and just a really amazing women. 🥰

She rented this little dress from @_girlsgoglam for an anniversary weekend away - super cute!

What’s everyone’s plans for the long weekend?

Mine involves 🚴 🏕 🥤 🧹


But can’t we have both? ❤️

If you’re after a glow for your Valentine’s Day or going out on Saturday with the girls, book in for a rapid tan Saturday morning. The earlier the better! ⏰

Bookings can be made online 24/7


Can you tell it’s a fake tan? Nah, neither can we. And that’s just the way we like it. 😘

Bridal Tans ARE different. Book in for a trial so you can find out how.

Also, I’ve been dying to see what the inside of this chapel 💒 looks like (@avodahphotoandcinema, you to go to all the cool venues…meanwhile us Spray tan artists live through the snaps you post 📸😂) so during my husband’s bday golf celebration, I snuck away from my tee and had a peek inside. Shhh 🤫 don’t tell the management. Stunning. The all around perfect venue.

Shannon - Congrats on a few months of wedded bliss 🥂. You = stunning!
