Blue Lizard Sunscreen Review and Giveaway – TWO winners!


I've partnered with Blue Lizard for this review and sponsored giveaway. As you can imagine, as a Florida resident I hear about sun safety pretty often. Wearing sunscreen has become a way of life for us, but it didn't always used to be that way for me. I try not to live life with regrets, but if there is one thing I regret deeply it's spending time sunbathing and in tanning beds in my early twenties. I'm mortified when I think back on it and how much harmful UV exposure I got.  It's amazing how ... ...continue reading
