How I Get Ready For the Sunny Weather – What Is In My Bag?

Protect your skin from Sun exposure

This is a sponsored post.

I often notice that fellow bloggers showcase what they use daily for their skincare, and today I wanted to show what I use as well. I am actually a Brand Ambassador for an amazing company called Goddess Garden – have you heard about them? I use a lot of their products to help me battle the sun and deal with the sun effects on my skin.

Our winters and cold seasons are not particularly sunny here in North-West, especially this year, as the sun is just now starting to lurk out from the skies once in a while. I am gearing up for the summer season though because when the sun does get out here, we certainly spend a lot of time outdoors. We have a nice backyard as well as the front yard where our kids play and frolic while we enjoy a sip of a cold drink, or just chill in the pool.

All this summer activity never goes unnoticed for our skin, and I am just so happy to work with a company that understands that we have to protect our skin using the most natural products that we have available for us.

I have first learned about Goddess Garden at a ShiftCon conference I have been to in NoLa last year, and I was amazed at the quality of these products. This company creates a wide range of skincare and sun repair products that can help us cool off from the sun, nourish our skin with vitamins, and create that screen that will protect the skin from sun exposure.

My skin is becoming more and more reactive again now as I grow older. In my youth my skin has been plagued by acne, and then it kind of stopped breaking out a lot for a while, only to come back again now that I am getting older. Add to that seasonal skin irritations, dry skin, a few wrinkles, and you get yourself a full package of wonders – what do I do with my face, I never know.

I do try to use natural and organic products for my skin, as much as I can. Goddess Garden products contain organic ingredients so I can be sure that I am using the best products available for my skin.

Natural products

I am starting to feel the aging, and I do try to postpone this process with products, and yet I know that one of the biggest culprits is actually the sun. I feel like when I spend less time in the sun, my skin looks and feels better. I know we are all used to thinking that tanned skin is beautiful, but it is so important to watch the sun exposure, and protect the skin with the first rays of sun. Here are a few facts:

An Australian study followed 903 adults under the age of 55 for 4 ½ years. Part of the group had strict daily sunscreen requirements and the other part had no sunscreen restrictions at all. After 4 ½ years, the sunscreen wearers showed a dramatic decrease in skin aging. Check out this article –  Push the Pause Button on Skin AgingA study led by Philippe Humbert, MD, head of the Department of Dermatology at the University Hospital of Besançon, showed chronic exposure to UVA radiation accelerated the aging of skin five to seven years.

Have you started using the sunscreen this year yet? Do you use it every day throughout the year? Check out Goddess Garden products if you are looking for sunscreen containing products – I love the firming primer and pre-sunscreen serum I am using. The serum has this amazing scent – I could us this as a perfume – it reminds me of essential oils. Love the sunscreen as I know it does its job, and makes me feel confident that my skin is protected properly.

Eragem Sapphire Engagement Rings – What Is Your Favorite?

Eragem Sapphire Engagement Rings

This is a sponsored post.

What’s in a ring? It is a modern tradition to have all types of new family permutations, and whatever works is the custom of the day. Ultimately, marriage and engagement is about finding that special someone who you can share your life with, with all the joys and sorrows of it, life comes as a complete package, not a list of exclusions.

But there is one item that will stay as a symbol of an engagement that will not change with the time. It is a symbol of commitment and signifies the couple’s intentions – it is a symbol yet has to be as beautiful and valuable as the marriage is planned to be.

EraGem is the site that I wish I knew about when we were getting engaged. These sapphire engagement rings are so beautiful, stylish and yet quite affordable. The company offers excellent customer service and a lifetime warranty while selling high quality antique and estate jewelry online for over 10 years. This is a very trustworthy company, and they provide a 60 day no questions asked money back guarantee. There is also free shipping offered on both domestic and international sales.

Here are a few of the engagement rings that I recommend checking out if you are planning to propose and are wondering where to get the most beautiful sapphire engagement rings. Blue-green gems are considered to be especially sought after in both secondary resale market of antique engagement rings, or among modern sapphire engagement ring options.

Going through a rough patch with your hair? How about wearing a wig from Divatress

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I love creating daily beauty posts, and this one has a lot to do with what can be done about how we look.

While we love to believe that what is in our heart and soul is what really matters, people we meet who we don’t know always end up judging us by how we look. How do you make yourself look better if your hair is a mess? What if you have a bigger concern – you have no hair, or your hair is thinning a lot – what are you going to do?

A few days ago I have written a post about a new product that improves the look of your thinning hair but what if you are way past that? A lot of people are in this boat – while this is a concern, this is definitely not the end of the world.

In the past wigs looked very odd, at least the ones that I have seen, but now they look stunning, and no different from regular hair. Especially the wigs that are made out of human hair.

I have found this one website that sells human hair wigs – Divatress wigs

These wigs are gorgeous, and look so beautiful. I am thinking of getting a few wigs just for fun – they are so affordable.

I love wearing costumes, and this wig in particular would be so much fun to wear for a 1920s party

divatress wigs

Not only does this wig look amazing, there are 6 hair colors that you can choose from to get as close to your natural hair as you can – nobody will ever know it is not your hair.

Sometimes I want to wear a short hair cut, but I don’t feel like actually getting a hair cut. Why not wear a wig for a few days just for a change?

Divatress wig

This next style of hair is really my favorite. Do I have hair like that? My color is much darker than this one, but I have always wanted to have this type of a hair style. I never have the time to have my hair looking like this, but it is possible to have that with a wig!
