It’s more important than ever to keep my face from the sun. With a family history of skin cancer and aging skin that can’t work as hard as it used to, to repair the damage I do to it, I need the extra protection of a hat. Sure, a sunscreen is a great idea, but sometimes I want just to run outside for an hour or so, and I don’t want to take the time to put on anything except a hat. But I want that hat to be cute and flattering so that I’ll want to wear it.
I love handmade products and I adore them even more when by purchasing them, I’m helping others. That’s exactly how SIMBI works. They bring clean water and sustainable jobs to Haiti that improve the lives of women and their families there.
Created by two women, one who was born and raised in Haiti and the other an American who married a Haitian, they’re working to change the way the world sees Haiti and to replace some of the negative news with some positive changes. That’s something I’m proud to help support.
I just got home from a 3-day trip to LA, and I’m exhausted. I swear the LAX airport keeps growing and by the time I get to my gate, I feel like I’ve run a marathon. It’s not much different when I land at SeaTac and have to make another insanely long journey from the gate to baggage claim, and on to my car. My feet are killing me!
As most people know, over 90 percent of skin cancer cases are caused by UV damage from the sun and getting a sunburn only increases your chances. Having been to many tropical locations all over the world, I’m quite familiar with sunburns.
A lightweight and versatile bag that began as a pile of used water bottles. Now that’s pretty amazing.
A Chilly Jilly Wrap is the perfect travel companion. These wraps can be used in place of a germ-infested blanket on the plane, a sweater or jacket at dinner, a head scarf when required in some countries or churches, an accessory, and even a beach sarong!
