Nessa's World: May 2015





Any holiday that comes around I automatically use that as an excuse to shop. Especially if it involves a good sale, right? I am an addict to online shopping especially on Memorial Day. A few of my favorite shop are offering amazing deals and I obviously had to share. The pair of sunglasses pictured below by Vince Camuto are only $14, the rug I have been eyeing went from $300 to $80 and adorable purses over at Olivia+Joy are as low as $40. I seriously can't believe how good these sales are. Just follow the links below. Happy Memorial Day and happy shopping! XO

Protecting my skin will always be a priority. Yes, I am that paranoid mom who is constantly applying sunscreen on my son and myself every eighty minutes. When I was younger I never took care of my skin. I would go outdoors and I never applied anything to protect it. I was young and careless. My skin was always dry and extremely sensitive. Skin care is so important now. I want to avoid any dryness, premature aging, dark spots, dehydration and cancer. I turned to Neutrogena products to give me brighter and healthier skin.

I learned that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lives. Yet skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. And with early detection, most cancers are curable. If it can be preventable why not take the initiative and take care of our skin? It's that easy! I can proudly say that my skin is healthy by following a few simple tips.
  • Stay well hydrated to give your skin the glow it needs. The heat in Texas is on another level and I always carry bottles of water.
  • Always wear UV-blocking sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats and if necessary bring an umbrella.  Especially if you are going to a pool party or the beach, because you'll be outdoors for longer periods of time.
  • Wear comfortable clothing/layers. I love to wear kimonos or a sheer light layer to cover my skin from the sun.
  • Apply sunscreen 20 minutes before you are exposed to the sun so your skin has enough time to absorb it. Remember to reapply every two hours. 
  •  Remember, the sun's rays are strong even when the clouds are out. Always apply sunscreen SPF 30 or higher.
    Neutrogena has a variety of great products that will help you keep your skin healthy. I really like Neutrogena CoolDry Sport collection. It is ideal for outdoor physical activities or sports. Being outdoors requires a powerful sunscreen to stay protected. Most sunscreens are so greasy and sticky but CoolDry Sport offers superior UVA/UVB breathable protection. It goes on smooth leaving skin cooled and refreshed. I use this for my outdoor workouts or a day at the park with Evan.

    Neutrogena Ultra Sheer collection is absolutely my favorite. I have the body mist sunscreen and I love that I can use it all over my body. I apply under my makeup because it is oil free and won't clog my pores. This is more of a daily use sunscreen which is easy to apply. It has no sticky residue and absorbs fast leaving a fresh scent. These two products are on my vanity and will be there all summer. I will definitely purchase the kid products next! 
    I hope these few tips will help you take care of your skin all summer long. For more tips and info join the Neutrogena twitter party on May 19th at 7-8pm EST (4-5pm PST). Make sure to RSVP here

    I feel like all holidays sneak up on me. I can't believe that Mother's Day is five days away. Mother's Day is a day to celebrate the most important, loving and inspiring people in our lives. We always look forward to showering them with gifts and lots of love on this special day.

    However, shopping for the perfect gift can be a little tricky. Personally, I never want anything over the top. A simple gift or gesture goes a long way. A simple gift paired with roses and chocolates is what I call an ideal gift. I thought about the top few items that have been on my wish list and I put together this gift guide. All gifts are under $100. I believe the Iphone case and mini camera are both on sale now when you follow the links below. 

    What is on your Mother's Day wish list? XO
