wear large hats or even use umbrellas to

never leave the house without SPF. It’s

no secret that the sun is a major cause of

premature wrinkles and skin cancer! I

want to protect my skin but the goopy,

thick, white paste we have here leaves

me looking more like a greasy, pasty

mess so I'd almost rather just skip it all

up irritating my sensitive skin:( Last year

I discovered Korean sunscreen and now I

Korean sunscreen is lightweight, easily

Hop On The Neon Trend

Summer is all about bright, fun, cheery

colors! This season's polish trend is no

exception. I'm loving the 80s vibes these

nail colors give! So bright, you'll light up

any room with your nails!

I tried the Sally Hansen neon nail colors and

loved the intense shades. I hardly wear polish

because it chips after a day or two, but trying out

these fun colors was fun and added a cute pop to

my every day!
