THE BEST SUNSCREENS FOR BEACH SEASON

Are you ready to enjoy your day in the sun? Start by choosing the best sunscreen so you don’t have to worry about getting burned and the risk of skin cancer. Most of us do not realize the importance of sunscreen. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and more than 2 million people are diagnosed annually. Therefore, it is important to prevent it. Lets start by using sunscreen! Here I will show you some products that will keep you glowy and protected.

1. La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen, $29, Walgreens – This sunscreen is awesome because not only does it protect the skin from the sun but it also has a tinted mineral formula that helps even out minor imperfections and adds a subtle glow.

2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 55, $10, Target – This sunscreen protects the without clogging the pores so it won’t cause breakouts or leaving the skin feeling oily. It goes on very nicely.

3. Coppertone Sport Continuous Spray Sunscreen SPF 70+, $9, Walmart – This spray comes out as a mist which makes it easy to quickly cover your entire body. Using this spray will help encourage people to apply and REAPPLY.

4. L’Oreal Paris Sublime Sun Sheer Protect Sunscreen Oil SPF 50+, $11, drugstore.com – I love this sunscreen because it protects my skin and the oil gives my body a pretty sheen. It also has a wonderful scent and absorbs to the skin quickly.

SWIMSUIT STYLES THAT FLATTER YOUR BODY TYPE

Swimsuit season is here! Finding the right swimsuit that is designed for your figure can sometimes be a little intimidating. Today, I want to help you find the perfect swimwear that looks best for you. I have done some research to help flatter women with different body types: those with curvy shape, those with straighter shape, and those with petite shape.

For curvy shape, a one piece with ruched detailing is perfect to draw the focus away from areas you want to hide. Plus the color is very flattering. Victoria Secret ($58)

For a straight figure, you definitely have to find a top with bows or some kind of seaming around the torso to create a curvier look for more oomph up top. And the color blocked details like bows that sit on the hips add a feminine touch to straight frame. Asos (Top: $23.76) (Bottom: $20.36)

For a petite shape was all dream for those longer, slender legs. Of course we cannot alter those genetics but we can definitely find a few tricks to create the illusion of longer legs. Wearing high waisted bottoms will definitely help pull that trick. JCrew (Top: $54) (Bottom: $50)

I hope this helps you figure out what swimsuit styles that is flattering to your frame. Enjoy your summer and the hot weather!

SUMMER VACATION: CANCUN, MEXICO

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I cannot believe it is May and that summer is sneaking in. I know everyone is probably thinking: What to do this summer? Where to go this summer? If you are looking for a perfect vacation, Mexico is an ideal destination. I know the media is constantly reporting that it is an unsafe country to travel to. Please do not be discourage, you can still have a perfect Mexico vacation if you go to the right places. Cancun is one of the popular getaways.

My husband and I went to Cancun about two years ago and I really enjoyed my time there. Beautiful beaches, awesome nightclubs, and fun adventures. The highlight of my vacation is staying at Le Blanc Spa Resort. Le Blanc is one of the best resorts in Cancun. I guarantee that you will enjoy your stay, where luxury reaches its pinnacle and service is simultaneously warm, genuine, and unbelievable. The property is beautiful and well kept up, the rooms are very comfortable, the all-inclusive dining options are fantastic, the pools are beautiful as is the beach and the staff is very attentive.

When we check-in, we received cool towels and coconut drinks. I was already in awe. The room and service was truly outstanding. The food was fantastic and plentiful. Let me stop the mumbling and start showing you the pictures. Overall, I will definitely go back to Cancun and stay at Le Blanc again. Hopefully, in a couple of years. Now I forgot to mention that this resort is an all-inclusive ADULT only. I am sorry if you do plan to travel with the kids. I am sure there are other resorts in Cancun that is kid friendly. Let me know in the comment section below, if you have any plans for this summer.  

Our beautiful resort!
