Beyond Coastal Sun Care (Review and Giveaway)







It seems that I am on the go and running after my kids all summer long. Since we are in NYC, being outside (except for the occasional day trip) means lots and lots of time in various playgrounds around the city.

I run after my kids in the grass, on concrete and asphalt, catch them at the bottom of slides, push them on swings and chase them through sprinklers.

One thing (among many 😉 that terrifies me is sunburn. I am always looking for a great sunscreen for my family that will protect all of us and keep us safe. It’s pretty scary that, of late, there have been warnings against so many of the ingredients in the sunscreens that we usually buy. I was happy to get the chance to try out Beyond Coastal ‘s sun care line because it is on the EWG‘s list of approved sunscreens.


OnlineShoes Teams Up with Patagonia & Healthy Child Healthy World! (review and giveaway)



How awesome would it be to buy a pair of cute, comfy shoes and also feel like you were doing something good for the world?

Ok, that was kind of a leading question.

For every pair of Patagonia shoes purchased from 4/10-4/23, Patagonia will donate $10 to Healthy Child Healthy World!

I was lucky enough to have my pick of Patagonia shoes from the site and after hemming and hawing for a while, I settled on the Maha Curl flat in Dragon Fruit .

I’ve been trying to upgrade my daily show wardrobe from sneakers and flip flops to something a little more chic, and these totally fit the bill.  And the little girl in me totally wanted a pair of pink shoes.  So. Much. Fun!
