Things I Love: Favorite Sunscreen

When it comes to sunscreen, I want something that I can grab from almost any store. A Walmart or Target, Walgreens or CVS kind of store, because pretty much wherever you are, you can find stores like these, and they’ll carry your favorite products that way.

These are my absolute favorite sunscreen, and summer skin care products.

1. Baby Lips is one of my favorite lip balms anyway, but I love this one in the summer. It’s peppermint flavored, so it makes your lips feel nice and cool while it protects them from the sun with the SPF 30 addition. 

2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen – This is my go-to sunscreen. There’s always one in my beach bag, and hiding under the seat of the Jeep. It goes on easy and smooth, doesn’t feel greasy, doesn’t smell too strong, and works fantastically.

3. Ocean Potion Aloe Lotion – I wear this lotion every day in the summer. It not only feels great on your skin after you’ve had your beach day, and showered off the sand… it helps your tan last longer by keeping your skin hydrated, and smelling like yummy coconut.

4. Neutrogena Age Shield Face – This is another product I wear every day in the summer. It goes on right underneath my makeup, and I never have to worry about my face getting burned.

5. And on normal, not going to the beach days, I wear Gold Bond Ultimate Protection lotion. I try to remember it every day after my shower, because even a little SPF 15 helps! Plus, it’s great lotion. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth for hours after I put it on.

Book Review: The Rosie Project

This is not an official book review – this is just my opinion on a book I read. And my opinion is this. I REALLY liked The Rosie Project! I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads, and I’m recommending it to everyone I know who reads.

the rosie project

The Rosie Project is a quick read about a nerdy, Sheldon Cooper-ish guy, who decides to find himself a wife. He composes a very thorough survey, and asks all future wife-candidates to fill it out. None of the ‘right’ and ‘well matched’ candidates are to his liking, but he just can’t keep the ‘completely wrong’ candidate off of his mind. She messes up all his routines and schedules, and he just doesn’t know what to do with her. It’s so adorable! I laughed out loud so many times.

If you read it, please let me know! I’d love to know what you thought. :)

Clean Eating: Swimsuit Season is Looming!

Spring is here! That means for those of us in warmer climates, it’s finally time to dig out the sandals and sundresses and hit the beach. However, some of us spent the winter hibernating in the woods – and don’t love what that did to our waistlines! (Speaking from my own personal experience there.) Time for spring cleaning, and clean eating!

*UPDATE* Yesterday I posted this post, and after thinking about it, I realized that I really didn’t feature the best blogs and recipes on my list. Here’s an updated version, with better quality recipes, better researched blogs, and hopefully, appropriately featured photos. ;)

I personally think that dieting is one of the most unhealthy things anyone can do. For one thing, we have the tendency to eat ‘replacement’ foods – things that take the place of the sweets and indulgences we partake in while we aren’t dieting. Which gives us piles of chemicals, and artificial additives. I have been bitten by the idea of Slim-Fast bars, and diet sodas as many times as everyone else, but I think I might finally be onto something that works for me, and one of my 2014  goals was to focus more on ‘Clean Eating.’
