Can’t decide between the Fujifilm Instax Camera and the Instax Printer?

  In this time of fleeting Snapchats and constant social media updates, there is still something to be said for holding an actual photo in your hand.  Now that everyone has a camera on their phone, we take so many more photos that the idea of sorting through them and choosing what to print seems like more effort than it’s worth.  Sure we can save them to our computer, but when have you ever looked back through them?  I, for…

Oh Look A Sunscreen I Don’t Despise! – Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen

Creams, scrubs, powders, glosses… If you couldn’t already tell, I love beauty products.  A serum promising more radiant skin? I’m all over that.  A deep conditioner that will rehydrate fried strands? Sign me up.  A cream that gives you instantly firmer skin? Okay, kind of skeptical… but in it goes into my basket! One product, however, sticks out in my mind as abhorrent no matter what I do nor which ones I try…sunscreen.  I loathe everything about it from its smell,…
