Four ways to look fabulous while touring the tropics

Sunshine is not always about a gentle warmth, picnics, and butterflies. It is also about blazing heat, severe tanning, and sunburns, especially in the Tropics. Tropical countries have their own distinct beauty with picturesque landscapes and rich cultures. Touring there, especially in the summers, is not so dreamlike when reality hits your face in the form of the blazing sun. Nonetheless, when you are on a tour, you will not always want to sit in the shade when a sun basked scenery awaits you. Apart from depending on sunscreens and hydration to protect yourself from the sun, remain to look glamorous while you protect yourself. Here are a few tips you can consider when you venture into the tropical sun:
  1. Wear scarves: These are classy options and an instant glam up to most attires.

This piece comes not only in varied colors, but also in a variety of fabrics like cotton, satin, and silk among other materials. Choose a plain one or one with the local motifs for that exotic look.
  2. Use hats: These are timeless accessories and are a brilliant invention of our ancestors. They play a dual role in protecting you from the sun even while making you look stylish. They range from simple dainty varieties to regal extravagant ones. You can get them from a hat maker around the corner or you can even order a tailored one online from sites like While you can get it made to suit your style and comfort, make sure to not opt for one that is too tight as it may damage your hair follicles. Do look for some ventilation in them. Opt for wide-brimmed hats for extra protection against the sun.
  3. Put on your sunglasses: Glasses are glam. They can lift your look up a notch instantly while protecting your eyes from the glaring sun. The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate, which gets damaged by the sun and easily results in wrinkles.

Nowadays, they come in a wide range of shapes and sizes like the Oversized, Aviator, Cat-eyed and so on. You can go for UV absorbent shades as well.
  4. Check out some parasols: These pretty things permeate a vintage kind of classy look. They not only give you a broad coverage, but will also make you look like a lady. They are available in various beautiful colors for you to choose from.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
