Summer Favorites: Sunscreen and Tanning Lotions

Saturday, May 16, 2020

Summer time is just around the corner and the weather has been amazing here lately. Clear blue skies and fresh breezes of air. 

Today, I am sharing my favorite tanning oils/lotions!

(Direct links below as well as on the LIKETOKNOW.IT app- instructions here)






TANNING OILS/LOTIONS

If you prefer a spray, like me (I hate the feeling of the suntan lotion on my hands, then you will absolutely love either of these two products from Australian Gold. They give you a nice golden glow as it works to tan you as well. 



If you are more of an oil type person, then the Carroten oil is for you! This stuff works wonders and was highly recommended by my Greek friend, Renna.



Now if you like more of a lotion and truly do not care to get the lotion on your hands because you have to rub it in, then Maui Babe Browning Lotion is for you! Honestly, it works wonders and if I really want to get my best tan, then I suck it up and use this!

  • I am obsessed with the floral set below. It is super cute on and just feels so girly.
  • I love a good white bikini- really helps a tan glow that much more. The pastel striped suit also helps that as well. 
  • The bold blue and/or yellow suit is a MUST. The tops are so fun & different. (neither ideal for tanning though, but for a fun pool party)
  • The striped suit in the top left is just cute suit for a pool party but also the straps are removable with helps get you a decent tan.



  • The top outer board shorts are HYBRIDS! Meaning they can be worn as everyday shorts or worn in the water as swimming trunks. My husband loves these!
  • The middle blue ones have a fun Hawaiian flower vibe. Something that'll stand out.
  • The bottom three are soft stripes! Really appealing to the eyes.

TODDLER LEARNING ACTIVITIES

Monday, April 20, 2020

Hi my fellow parents! 

Have you been playing the home school teacher? Well same! I have a toddler and she is always on the go and needs her routine and structure. I have rounded up my favorites on what is needed. Emily's favorite is paint, she loves to PAINT. Every morning she is yelling for chocolate milk and paint!

 Check them out below. If you go back to the main page, in the tab 'LIKEtoKNOWit', you can see how to get to the direct links to make shopping easier.

 


The Crayola paint set has been a huge lifesaver. I also got the paint cups with the safety lids so it conserves the paint as well as limits spills.  However, Em loves to paint her hands and then run around like a crazy person... so yes, sometimes the paint gets everywhere but thankfully its washable and comes right off!

The puzzles are great and enable her match things up! Pretty colors too! 

The learning posters are GREAT. I post them on the walls and every time we walk by them we talk about then.. whether its the alphabet, colors, farm animals, etc. There are 12 different ones!! Perfect for toddlers but also have bundles that are great for pre-k and kindergarten as they have ones that teach time, etc. 

The teach my toddler kit also comes in a baby edition!! 

So many cool items. Please share with me any other school learning things i can incorporate! 

Thank you in advance!
