Hi Friends,

I am writing this message from sunny California. Frank and I came out here to attend some All Star Weekend activities. Prior to coming, of course, we had to pack, which is my favorite part of traveling. I know that is weird. I think most people are not a fan of packing, but I love it.

I decided to do a flat lay of one of the outfits I plan on wearing while I am there. Typically, when I pack, I like to take pictures of my outfits. It helps me to keep things organized. I have those pictures on my phone, but I look a mess in them and decided to avoid embarrassment and not post them 🙂

Be sure to keep a look out on how I style the outfits from my tip.

Summer Skin Protection

Good Day Lovilies,

We are about halfway through the summer at this point. One thing I think is really important pertaining to the summer is protecting our skin from the sun. I am a huge skin care junkie; yes, I admit it. The skin is our largest organ and we have to take care of it. We always hear, take care of your skin when you are young or you will regret it later. I live by this motto.

Today I will be sharing with you the sunscreens I use on a daily basis, as well as when I am spending the day outside. 

Daily Lotion: In the summer I opt for a lotion with SPF, such as Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15. Just to give me a light layer of protection in my daily activities. I started using this lotion for the first time this summer and I actually like it a lot. In the past couple of years I would used the Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Spray. After my shower and before my lotion I would spray this all over, then apply lotion, if you want to see all the products I use check out this post. I find using Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15 alone now, which is much easier, just a one stop shop. I still use the Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Spray, but on top of the Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15, for extra protection.  

Face moisturizer: In the summer I increase the SPF for my face, just in case. I wear an SPF year round on my face but in the summer when the sun is closer to the earth, I like to take extra precautions to protect my skin. I have been using the Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer in SPF 50. I have been using this for about 2 years now, and I always go back to it especially in the summer.

(Bonus)Fashion: When you know you are going to be outside, remember to wear your sunglasses to protect your eyes and don’t forget your hat. Hats are so chic, especially when you wear a cute summer dress! I have a lot of examples on my Pinterest!

I hope you found this useful and you protect yourself while you are out in the heat 🙂

Why I love Summer

I am so glad the weekend is finally here. This week went by fast, but I am glad it is gone.

 

Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend and she said that, she is so glad the weekend is here. Thinking of how fast this week went by, make me think, we are almost halfway through summer. Soon it will be getting chilly and I will be counting down until next summer. OMG having this thought made me so sad, I am always so sad to see summer go. I just want to hold on to it forever!

 

If I could hold on to summer forever I would love:

1. To have the sun beam down on my skin, making me feel warm.

2. To spend every moment outside, just because you can.

3. Take long walks when the sun starts going down.

4. Having long days.

5. Wearing outfits that are always comfortable (in the winter I always feel like I have to put on more clothes).

What are your favorite things about summer? What will you miss most when the weather gets cooler?
