OK!: Why did you create a sunless tanner?

OK!: How challenging was it for you to give up tanning?
Snooki: For the duration of my pregnancy, it def sucked not to go tanning, but I was 100% dedicated to taking care of myself so I would have a healthy beautiful baby and if that meant giving up tanning, I did it!
OK!: Do you regret tanning as much as you did?
Snooki: No. I have amazing skin color because of it and you should never have regrets in life.

Snooki: It's fast, easy, and you smell amazing!
OK!: What inspired you to create your own fragrance?
Snooki: I've always loved fragrances but never found the perfect scent that I wanted, so to create my own fragrances has been a dream come true!
OK!: How did you come up with the scent?
Snooki: Well I have two fragrances. My first one ("Snooki" by Nicole Polizzi) I wanted it to be very sweet and flirty smelling, so I added cupcake notes to make it smell like cotton candy. Then for "Snooki Couture" I wanted it to smell more sexy, so I had notes like cashmere woods and apple blossom to make it mature smelling, but still sexy!
OK!: Who is your target audience?
Snooki: EVERYONE. My products don't discriminate against anyone! any ages, any gender, any species! Anyone can rock my products!
OK!: You now have your own sunless tanner, fragrance and jewelry line. What else is next for you?

OK!: At what point did you know you wanted to create you own collections?
Snooki: I've always been into fashion and it was a dream of mine to create my own designs, so given the opportunity to be on jersey shore and being able to create my own brand is just amazing and I'm so thankful everyday to my fans and supporters who always have my back.
OK! How are you balancing creating your own brand and being a mom?
Snooki: I stay at home probably 95% of the time and I work a lot at home through emails and designing so it all works out. I love being home with my son, and when he takes naps, that's when I get to work!
