“I am a Coppertone Water Mom” #CoppertoneWaterMoms

Coppertone Water MOMS Blog Button

With both parents having fair-complexions,  it is no surprise that our children were blessed to be fair as well.  As a kid, I remember putting on sunblock once before going swimming and then getting burnt. Once I became a mother, I read every book and magazine to learn about being a good mom. Sun care has always been an important issue to me. I won't lie I used to work at a tanning place (mostly coffee/smoothie/herbal store) and with free tanning I felt I could use some color. It was so tricky with all the mixed information about whether tanning beds or natural sunlight were better.  However, when people that I know in their 20s like me were being diagnosed with skin cancer from tanning beds, it is enough to make me think. Even though I did it sporadically, I didn't want to take that risk. I stopped tanning and switched to sunless tanner if I needed a glow.  With my first born mommy-mode set in, I always put sunblock (usually 50+) on my kids. The Boys don't always love to sit still for … [Read more...]

@Hapari Swimwear {Spring into Fashion}


This is the first year that I have been dreading swimsuit season. Due to a neck injury (and 5 more mos. in a delightful neck brace) from a car wreck over a month ago, I can't really do much exercise so toning up for the summer is not going to happen. I decided to check out Hapari's options. Their swimsuits have the everyday woman in mind no matter what your body shape or size is! About Hapari’s line improves modest swimwear by bringing it into the twenty-first century. Hapari Swimwear is anything but boring with colorful prints and patterns that flatter the figure and look beautiful on every woman.
