    Sun protection in the Winter + Blue Lizard Sunscreen Giveaway

            Getting kids to wear proper sun protection year-round is a big deal here.  And really – it should be a big deal everywhere. Kids need to be protected from the sun, plain and simple. Their skin and eyes are just as (if not more) sensitive than adults.  In fact, until they are around 10 years […]

              I am one of those gals that almost always has something on my head to keep my hair (or the sun) out of my eyes.  I’ve realized I do it year-round.  This summer I reached out to Pistil Designs to see about getting a sampling of their hats to share with you.  I had noticed […]
