7 Sunscreens to Try

It’s Skin Cancer Awareness Month and I’ve had lots of questions about what sunscreens I recommend. I know there’s lots of confusion about sunscreen, but one simple thing to remember is the best sunscreen for you is the one you’ll actually wear! That takes some trial and error. Here’s some of my favorites:

5 Skin Care Products Worth The Price Tag

Today we have an awesome guest post from Kelsey (that’s her in the photo above, isn’t she gorgeous?!)! Kelsey is the editor at LuxAuthority and is trying to balance both her budget and her credit card balance. She likes to live lavish and treat herself when the opportunity allows it. She loves the newest tech, old cars and the smell of rich mahogany and leather bound books as well!

Youthful looking skin is the key to helping you feel more confident. With so many products on the market, finding the ones that are most effective can be a daunting task. Drugstores carry many products for less than $20 that work well. However, skincare regimens that come with a higher price tag could produce better results. Expensive products tend to provide long-term effects and come in a physician-strength formula. A retinol product at a drugstore, for example, will give you the ingredients but at a much lower strength. Here is a list of the top 5 luxury skincare products that are worth the splurge.

10 Things You Should Do After Bleaching Your Hair

Joana Teixeira was sweet enough to write another guest post for us today! For better or for worse, I actually highlight my hair at home (are you gasping? lol). I was inspired by hair legend Jessie James Decker and talked about it in my Jessie James Decker Ombre Blonde Highlights at Home. Highlights = bleach though, which = damage so I asked Joana to help us with the after care to mitigate that damage and here’s what she said (with my comments in italics):

Nicaragua Travel Tips and Visiting Granada

I just had one of the best trips of my entire life to a place you may have never heard about- San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. My sister and her husband are avid surfers and knew they wanted a destination wedding. When a friend suggested the small surf town on the west coast of this stunning Central American developing country they agreed that it was just what they were looking for. They ended up getting nearly 60 friends and family members to come out and celebrate with them! I stayed for about a week and I want to break this up into a few posts starting with this one with tips and tricks. Here’s a photo of the dreamy couple:
