About

Apologies to all those who asked about my “About” page I had no idea there was nothing here!

I’m a freckly red head, originally from London now living in LA with 2 pale children. Frankly with our coloring we have no business being such an outdoorsy family and living in southern California. I grew up in a time when factor 8 sun milk was considered the best protection available to combat the hot rays of a holiday in southern Spain, that lead to 3rd degree burns and the rest of the vacation spent in the shade of our apartment.

As a family we love to be outside, going to the beach, camping, swimming & hiking. We can’t completely avoid the sun (nor should we) but taking sensible measures to avoid unnecessary UV damage is a priority. How do we do that? By staying in the shade in the middle of the day, wearing sun protective clothing (that’s why I created Sunny Sleevez), a broad brimmed hat, UV rated sunglasses, using chemical-free broad spectrum sun screen on exposed areas & eating a healthy diet with as few chemicals as possible & lots of antioxidants.

    Hi sunny sleeves. Living on the tennis court we are exposed to so much sun. I am very interested in your product. I think alot of my tennis parents would enjoy hearing about it as well.
    I am thinking of dedicating a week of blogging to skin cancer prevention ( i worked for plastic surgeons) and if I do would like to involve your product. Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any thoughts on this.

    Hi there, thanks for following ‘gday canucks’.
    As an Aussie living in Canada I was amazed at the difference in sun protection. In Australia it is now second nature, especially for young kids.
    Interesting blog!

  34. Thank you for following my blog and I’m glad you liked it. This looks like a useful site for sunbathing folk…sadly I live in Wales, UK, the land sunshine forgot!

    Love the idea of your blog/business. Thanks for caring about people’s skin…after all, it’s our only natural covering. :) Thank you also for following my blog. Would be intrigued to know what brought you my way.

  44. sassydesi says:

    Love your site and the concepts! i’m following you right away :) thanks a lot for following me :D

  45. Thank you for following my traveller blog. Living in Queensland Australia, the sun does a lot of damage without any protection. Very informative site you have here.

  46. Thanks for following 8kidsandabusiness. I’d like to invite you to my professional blog, McDermottfootcare.com since I’m writing a blog on skin cancer awareness at the beginning of May. It will be primarily about feet but will include general skin cancer tips, including covering up. Maybe we can link up.

  47. cal3b00 says:

    Great blog! rich info about a lot of stuff. Thanks for following me (“,) I’ll be sure to visit this space more often. Cheers!

  48. Hi Sunnysleeves,
    Thanks for following my blog mummumstheword.wordpress.com
    Congrats on having your sleeves in the Grammy’s goodie bag – that’s such a scoop!

    Singapore gets pretty hot – you might want to think about getting your sleeves here!

  49. Thanks for stopping by and for the follow. Very useful information on your blog. I look forward to your updates and sound advice on staying protected from the sun.

  50. Thank you for following my blog! I really appreciate your interest. Since we are in Florida (and often in the Caribbean), sun exposure and resulting skin damage are concerns. I will also keep an eye on your site. Keep in touch!

    Hi,

    What an informative blog. I too am a “Save Mother Earth” advocate. The sunscreen topic in particular is of great help specially in a humid country like where I live.

    Thanks,
    Kat

  54. rosemcom says:

    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for following my blog “Delightful Local Repast”. Really like your blog…so much great information…I never even considered the impact of sunscreen in our waters…well done and thanks again. Cheers, Rose

  55. Thanks for following! Great product you have! I just got back in from walking the dog with the baby in the ergo. I had a sun hat on him and felt terrible when I noticed the sun on his arms.

    • sunnysleevez says:

      ouch, it’s so easily done. I LOVED my Ergo, but a couple of times i forgot to cover up my little ones legs and the top of her feet especially.
      You may want to give our stroller blanket a try, you can tie it to the Ergo so it doesn’t fall off and it hangs loosely for lots of airflow but will cover his arms and legs.

      ps there is a discount code under specials for mothers day on the site too ;-D

  56. Thank you for finding and following my blog. I happen to have a sun allergy and am constantly looking for products (clothes, hats, sunblocks) to protect my overly sensitive skin. I’m glad to see there are products out there that don’t make covering up look so…well, dorky! :)

  57. Greetings from one Southern Californian to another! Thanks for following my blog and for providing great info on skin protection from the sun!!

  58. A super informative blog you have, I’d like to nominate you for The Versatile Blogger award – http://tillerstale.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/tillers-red-carpet-moment/

    Great blog–skimming through a couple right now and they all seem amazing, can’t decide which one to read first! :) Love the tips

  63. Becky J. says:

    Thank you for following carefreecomposition.com. I appreciate the blog love! Your sun protection site brings much-needed awareness to the dangers of sunburn – I’m a fair-skinned, blue-eyed, freckley person & try to follow all your tips…once burnt, twice shy :)

  64. Alison says:

    Thanks for following http://alisonanddon.wordpress.com. I too appreciate the blog love. Also appreciate all your info re sun protection. I was raised in hot and sunny Australia before there was a hole in the ozone layer, and before the idea of sun protection even existed. Lucky for me I was never much into sun tanning. Love the shrug!

  65. stephglaser says:

    I, too, remember the days of wearing SPF 4 or even slathering on baby oil while I was a lifeguard. Yikes! I like the diversity of your blog and the helpful information. Sunnysleevez sounds like a unique product.
    Thank you for stopping by Travel Oops, by the way!

  66. I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award! Thank you for everything! http://bethanybeachdesigns.com/2012/08/06/one-lovely-blog-award/

  67. Excellent and very informative. Remember, SLIP, SLOP SLAP!

  68. Hi Sunnysleevez, thanks for dropping by my blog! Lost a relative to skin cancer so anything that gives people options in sun-protection is good by me.

  69. youngjef says:

    Thanks for following my blog at http://retirementandotherfuntales.wordpress.com/
    Nice that you are alerting people to the danger of unprotected skin exposure. My wife has had basal cell and we both get actinic keratosis. Before I retired, I was a nephrologist (kidney specialist) and we were always well aware of the particularly increased risks of skin cancer that our patients who had a kidney transplant were exposed to. So in addition to unprotected sun exposure being dangerous enough for the general population, there are large groups of people who are at especially increased risks who need to be educated and reminded to take precaution and pay attention to their skin health.

  70. Samuél says:

    Hello, thanks for stopping by and following my Blog. You have some pretty good information here. Great work. Keep it up!

  71. What a GREAT idea! Much success to you! Thank you for stopping by my blog. :) I’ll be sure to get the word out….~Jhanna

  72. Thanks for visiting Tuck and showing us your blog-very helpful–everyone should use a sunblock–if your don’t it will come back to haunt you–just like Momma said!

  73. Thanks for following my blog – I like yours, too. Particularly as I write gardening books and one of the things I ALWAYS put at the end of each book is a warning about sun protection for safe gardening. My books sell mostly in hot climates so it’s particularly important – might put a link to this site on my gardening blog at htttp://www.wix.com/jrlakemedia/ezibooks

  74. Hi there! Thanks for following my blog! I’ve enjoyed reading yours, too. Definitely something that I’ll want to keep up with since we’re out in the sun all the time farming at http://callahanfarms.wordpress.com/. Thanks again!!

  75. Thanks for following! Good to have a supporter in the green biz.Look forward to future post.

  76. JulesPaige says:

    I’m a tad fair skinned too. With age though – chemistry changes et al, bugs find me delicious. So I’m rather a shade, gal myself. Though I do get a slight toast if I stay out too much – though that could just be a heritage thing. I read somewhere that if you have a tan you already have skin damage. Once got a fungus due to a reaction of sun on the particular ‘lotion’. Not really a camper, but you do seem to have a few interesting articles. Thanks for tagging onto my site.

    Good luck in all your adventures.

  77. epackman says:

    Hi Sunny! Thanks for reading and following my blog, I am very honored! Btw, I see you’re from Los Angeles. If you haven’t tried it already I suggest hiking in Malibu, I guarantee you’ll love it! The trail I went on was called Mishe Mokwa, about 6 miles round trip, highly doable for both young and old.

  78. Jackie Jones says:

    Appreciate your visit and follow on my blog. This site seems to have a host of interesting information, and for me in Barbados where the sun is king most of the year, cool little facts and titbits. Thanks for sharing :).

  79. Thank you for following Terrysthoughtsandthreads,wordpress.com . It will focus articles on melanoma, multiple sclerosis, and other chronic conditions that I share with others. I’m glad you found me, and led me to your site! Great stuff!

  80. wayfinder says:

    Hi Sunny Sleevez, thanks for following my blog. good to know there is someone else out there facing the too much sun dilemma. I’ve just had my 5th basal cell carcinoma removed so now live under daily applications of factor 50+ and keep out of the sun most of the day. Her in Norland NZ we have almost no ozone layer so it is particularly important to take care. Will look forward to hearing more of your helpul insights. cheers, Imago

  81. PiedType says:

    Thanks for following my blog. Yours looks really interesting, especially to a Coloradan living at higher elevations with more sun exposure, etc.

  82. Thanks for following me. Both of my books, x0 and y1, take place in sunny climates (Nigeria and Kiribati) so I enjoyed this page. I will check out the rest of your blog, it looks interesting as well.

  83. skHILLed says:

    Have fun. Cheers!

    On a separate note, have you heard of The Alternative Travel Project? Thought you might be interested. Also, the Aussie saying “SLIP, SLOP, SLAP!”? Check it out on youtube (1980’s version is what I was brought up on)

    I love your blog, the tips are always great, especially for California summers! {I know I’ve probably mentioned that before as well}

    Please follow my blog & “Like” my facebook fanpage (https://www.facebook.com/MissCaliBayArea) to support me in helping people leading healthier, happier lives — I post insightful daily tips to promote positivity! Thanks :) sorry I had to comment–couldn’t figure out how to send a private message!

  85. Nice blog – great messages, thank-you!

  86. bcrcrider says:

    Thanks so much for the follow! My mom had given me a shirt she wore on vacation in Africa to wear in the car on my commutes to work, but realistically that’s something I’m not going to do day in and day out, but your sunnysleevez might actually get used. What a great idea! Easy on, easy off!

  87. Thanks for following me at Patricia A Bowmer. I also suffered from skin cancer last year (one melanoma and one basal cell carcinoma) but am all good now. It is a scary thing. I am much more conscious about sun protection than when I was younger!

  88. Love your blog, such great informative content! Thanks for following Sustainable Sophisticate!

  89. mgboad says:

    Hey thanks for following MGBoad, and lots of wonderful information about sun protection and cancer prevention. Keep up the good work!

  90. Hi,
    Thanks for following my site. I love your site, as too have a family full of redheads, and a mother I never knew who passed away at age 34 when I was 3 of melanoma. Your advice and products are wonderful. Keep up the great blogging!
    Beth

  91. nancymn says:

    Never seen this product before. Very useful here in a hot climate. Thanks for following my blog. And nice work on yours!

  92. juliehhicks says:

    Happy New Year and thanks for the follow Sunny Sleevez! To be honest, I almost didn’t leave a comment for fear that your site was actually a SPAMbot of some sort because of the very unique username and having an about page that just has “This is an example of a WordPress page, you could edit this to…” shown. Could you update your About Page so me/other folks can get to know you a little better?

    Best of luck in 2013! :)

  93. Runoffwriter says:

    Hi there!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the follow!
    I hate putting all the chemicals on my skin with sunscreen…love the sleeve idea!! All the best!

  94. Barbara says:

    Thanks for following my blog. Good info for everyone…me too!

  95. hitmenomore says:

    Thank you for following me. Your blog has some great stuff. Keep doing what you’re doing.

  96. Hi Sunny! Thanks for your follow, hope we get you cooking great food for yourself (and loved ones). In some parts of Canada we struggle to get adequate levels of Vitamin D, particularly in the depths of the winter. So unfortunately we often ignore sun-safe practices when we can finally get out and soak up the sun’s warmth.

  97. kylabee says:

    Thanks for the follow of my blog. Looks like you have some great tips for skiing and more. I saw your blog about buying ski goggles. I was thinking of buying a pair so thanks for the advice.

  98. Teri says:

    Thanks for following my blog…you have alot of useful info.

  99. Hi, thanks for following my new blog. I am a huge fan of UPF clothing and daily sunscreen and am always looking for new sun protection ideas!

    Did you ever consider updating this “About” page to tell us more about yourself instead of leaving the default WP paragraph?

    Hi there! Thanks for the follow :) I would love to see your “About” page fleshed out!

  104. Rob says:

    Thanks for following my blog. Hopefully you continue to find something interesting there.
    Wow, your site is incredible. Nice work.

  105. Hi. Thanks for following my blog, talkalittledo. I live in India where the climate is ‘hot, hotter, hottest.’ Must take some tips from your blog.

  106. A great and informative blog. Keep it up!

  107. Jae says:

    Hi! I have nominated you in a blog award! Go ahead, and check it out here. Congratulations! :)

  108. Thanks for following goingnaturalmum. Will definitely be having a good read at your blog, Very interesting topics.

  109. eehbahmum says:

    Thanks for stopping by. Will follow your tips next time i’m somewhere sunny ( ie not Yorkshire).

    • sunnysleevez says:

      My father’s side are all from Yorkshire, South Otterington, Darlington and Northallerton. Don’t ever remember having to break out the sunscreen when we went to visit Granny!

  110. Kate says:

    Thanks for the follow. I like yours. All of my family members have fair complexions and have to be careful with sun exposure. Your post about how to purchase ski equipment brought back memories. I used to ski middle school through college. Just don’t anymore due to cost, scheduling and lack of interest from other immediate family members. Good times on the slopes are forever in my head.

  111. chloeluka says:

    Thanks for the follow! So exciting to see that you are from London! That’s where my mum grew up, and where most of her family still lives! What a fun connection :)

  112. Hi, thanks so much for the interest and follow of my artblog,
    All the best, Norunn

  113. leilra says:

    I love it! I’m trying reduce the chemicals I intake as well. Glad I’m not the only one (:

  114. Very interesting blog! I can relate to the subject, I’m a very blond Swedish girl living in California. When I was living in Sweden I had to wear sun protection all year round…imagine now. Glad that I found your blog (after you found me:) Looking forward to follow you.

    Thanks for the follow on my blog. Glad to find yours. The recipes for zucchini muffins and cookies look wonderful. Oh, my, does the history with sun sound familiar. I tried for the elusive tan, too. Never happened, just burn and peel.

  117. Julie says:

    Thanks for following my blog! As a very pale person of Celtic extraction, your blog may looks like it has some pertinent information – so I’ll pop back and read some more!

  118. Lily says:

    Nice blog! Congrats on Sunny Sleevez! I need to protect myself from the sun more than I do…thanks for the tips!
    Thanks for following my blog :D

  119. Thanks for following my writing blog! I hope you enjoy it. As the father of a very cute and very pale kiddo, I appreciate your efforts to preserve the pale!

  120. Merci de suivre mon blog!!! d–0.o–b

  121. thomasoutt says:

    Thank you for reading & for your kind thoughts regarding my digital writing & photography sharing. I just learned how to do this about 7 months ago…so, there’s quite a learning curve going on. We wear similar sleeve protection devices for bicycling. One must be careful to avoid that kind of burn. I tan, but not too often & not too intensely.

  122. Thank you for following SocialADAMANTIUM! I hope you find it useful. I am so glad I found this site. As a pale person myself, and lupus survivor, sun safety is especially important to me.

    I look forward to reading more.

  123. Thanks for following House on the Knoll! We are also a family of pale skinned, fair haired, easily burnt ones, and South Australia is a sunny place.

  124. AR Neal says:

    Thank you for the blog-follow! I love that you offer tips to those of us who live in one of the sunniest places in the US. I hope your tips will include info for darker complexions too, as so often those of us of darker hues tend to think ourselves immune to the dangers of the sun…

  125. atempleton says:

    Thanks for following my blog. I’ve taken a look at yours, and it appears full of good advice–love that you include pets in your sun protection information.

  126. Jill says:

    Thanks for following Discover Santosha. Despite my love of the sun, I am careful to limit exposure and to see my dermatologist every year!

  127. swedenole13 says:

    Appreciate the follow on memrysonawing! I too am fair and rather than tan, I pink! I spent some time in Australia and had to use a lot of caution there. They use the slogan: Slip on a shirt, Slop on the 30+ sunscreen, Slap on a hat, Seek shade or shelter, Slide on some sunnies. (aussie lingo for sunglasses) – “Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide”. Went to Portugal a couple winters back and my friend tanned beautifully in two weeks…..me – well, I learned there are varying shades of pink! Enjoying what I have so far read of your blog. I plan to spend some time going into it in more depth. Great info!

  128. Hey there! You started following my blog so I wanted to check out your blog and say, “Hi!” I’m a fair-skinned chica living in SoCal who loves being outdoors, so your Sunny Sleevez sound great to me. I’ve been poking around on your blog, and I can connect with a lot of the topics you write about. I’m happy to e-meet you! Celeste:)

    Very informative and fun blog. My daughter and I were just talking about sun screen this weekend, so will be sure to read up on the info. Thanks for following my blog.

  133. Peabea says:

    Love when I see someone has visited Peabea’s Patch and the follow. I always try to give a visit back. A tip if you would want to include in your sun exposure notes; my eye doctor told me that people with blue eyes are more prone to macular degeneration as they age and should always wear sunglasses when out and about…even in the winter time. I have blue eyes, and luckily she said I don’t have signs of it, and when I was younger, I did wear sunglasses more, but had quit wearing them even when we were out and about on the boat. Anyway, love the tips about the sun and also about the organic fruits. Thanks for the info on the fruit was mixture, and thanks for visiting me. Have a great Memorial week-end.

    ~hugs ‘n giggles~, Peabea

  134. kfrego says:

    Thank you for following My Great Adventures. What a great informative site you have. Looking forward to reading more of of your helpful information.

  135. HI!!! Hope to meet you one day! I am living in the UK and we are going to be moving to California this year. We are not freckly… and we don’t get much sun here in the UK. But, when we do as you know it is very strong! So- how is CALI!!!??? Do you love it??

    • sunnysleevez says:

      Yep been here 12 years and never get tired of blue skies, mountains and palm trees :D Where are you moving to?

      • not sure! somewhere sunny! Georgia, Florida and California are on our list. A bit complicated- but it all surrounds around jobs, etc. I haven’t been in the states for 7 years so it will be a challenge to find work. Trying to think out of the box, but I am a Special Needs Teacher from New Jersey and want to be a Guidance Counsellor. I love to cook and garden.

    Mahalo for following my blog. As you could imagine living in Hawai’i certainly has it’s sun hazards and I’m at an age where my reckless past is catching up with my skin, but then we didn’t know the effects the sun could have on your skin when I was growing up. In those days we slathered on the Coppertone (no SPF rating at all) and fried!

  137. patsquared2 says:

    Love that you are in the same place as so many of us in the organic, healthy lifestyle world! And glad you visted growsoeasyorganic.com . I’ve been gardening for a long, long time…and love what being outside with the plants, my horse, my dogs….does for my body and my soul! Glad we keep the same company!

  138. Archie Kins says:

    Thanks for following my blog! Your blog is really useful, especially for us here in the Philippines. It’s getting hotter each day. That is why, if we wanted to go swimming with the whole family, we prefer to go during the late afternoon, so we won’t be getting sunburned :)

  139. Sunrise Goal says:

    Hi, thanks so much for following our blog! I think it’s funny that our blog is about seeing the sun and yours is about protecting from the sun! =p Hope you’re doing well!

    Thank you for following my blog! I’m making a point of checking out all the blogs of those who started following me, and I just wanted to stop by and say… hello =D I like the idea you’ve got here, because as a fair-skinned gal who grew up in Cali, I know how important it is to protect that skin. Alotta people laugh when I tell them I wear sunscreen nearly every day, but I laugh back cuz in awhile they’ll regret not doing the same >;3

  141. Steve Morris says:

    I suffered from severe sunburn too as a child, and am now extremely careful and am teaching my kids to be careful too. Watching for moles has become a part of my healthcare regime!

    • sunnysleevez says:

      Good question, I don’t have any fiction on the go at the moment, it’s all practical stuff like “The Knee Crisis”! What do you recommend?

      • cricketmuse says:

        oh my! that’s like asking which treat when standing at the candy counter–what’s your preference?
        classic? contemporary? trending? challenging? kid lit? YA? so much out there…
        I just finished My Antonia by Willa Cather, A Room with a View by Forster and Dandelion Summer by Wingate. Feel free to check out my previous posts as I review a lot of books. Look into GoodReads as well for suggestions. Great place to shop for reading ideas.
        Blue Skies!

  148. Hello Sunny,
    Looking very forward to reading more of your blogs. I have a feeling your posts are going to be incredibly helpful. I developed an allergy to the sun back in the 80’s. It was an affliction that only reared it’s ugly head when I was pregnant. However, Hormones, being the fickle creatures that they are, decided to make it a permanent issue after my third child. Thank you for Following us as we start out on our Dream Quest!
    Best Regards!!!

  149. Hi Sunnysleevez! Thanks for following Supporting Breastfeeding. I appreciate that……

  150. Thanks for the follow, Sunny – hope you’re learning something worthwhile from it! Dr Oz had some interesting episodes on different types of sunscreen as well that might be of interest to your readers.

  151. Hi! Thanks for visiting our blog and following it. That gave me a chance to check out your blog which is very interesting! Great products & ideas. Anita @ No Particular Place To Go

  152. Hi Sunny. Thank you for liking my post. I liked your like, so here I am reading some of your posts. Your personality comes right through in your About Me, statement. It made me think I must revisit mine. All the best to you and your beautiful family, A.

  156. Lorrie says:

    Hi there! Thank you so much for following my blog. And what a wealth of information you have here on yours. I especially like all of the ‘outdoor activity’ stuff!
    Cheers!

  157. Hi Sunnysleevez you have a lot of great tips for healthy outdoor living. For example, the dangers of too much sun is much underappreciated. I’ve never given it much thought since my skin is not of fair complexion. You have a unique and informative blog!
    Thanks for following!

  158. Buri-chan says:

    Thanks for following my blog! Out here in Japan sunscreen certainly isn’t as big a thing as sleeves, hats, and scarves. I’ve started picking up on it myself and I hope that it will gain more popularity in the US!

  159. donnagae says:

    Great invention, Sunny Sleevez! Also like the fact that you are very aware of your children’s exposure to sunlight. I grew up in a time when sun worship was the style and most of us were clueless as to the sun’s harmful effects, so starting proper sun education young is very important. Thanks for following my blog http://www.thethirdtrimesteroflife.wordpress.com.

  160. As my husband and I have to avoid sun exposure (for different reasons), I find your information valuable. Thank you for following my blog!

  161. Lady swan says:

    Thanks for sharing.

  162. Helen says:

    Thank you for visiting and following my blog. Keep up your good work – sun damage is a big issue in Australia. :)

    Brilliant!!! I love the sun and so do my kids! I live in Florida and we get it pretty bad out here. Very useful info. Thanks for that and thanks much for following my blog! :)

  166. alablague says:

    Thanks for finding and following alablague. We obviously had the same formative experiences! One of the sad things is that sunburn seems to get much less of a problem once you pass forty.

  167. tagaisla says:

    thanksmuch for following my blog:) and we do have lots of sun here, except for the past few days when we were under water :)

  168. Mark says:

  175. My husband was a redhead and so is my daughter. I’m not, but have used Oil of Olay/SPF 15 for decades. It’s the only product – I’ve tried dozens, including pricey a pricey gel from a dermatologist – that works without making it look as though I’ve smeared my face with Crisco!
    Happy days.

  176. Hi, and thanks for following my blog! I was glad to learn about the protective value of tomatoes–just one more reason to dig into their juicy goodness.

    Best wishes,
    Miles and Pippa

  180. Thanks for following. I love your story. Hopefully you’ll find some good antioxidant-filled recipes on my blog in the future. Best of luck!

  181. You have a great site and hopefully a lot of people will take notice of your advice. I have two friends that have grade 4 melanoma (one gone and one fighting) and being in Australia in sunny Qld your words really hit home, Thanks for following my blog.

  182. Thanks so much for following my blog. As a fellow flame-haired one — okay, my flame has been tapering down for the last decade or so as I’ve gotten older — I appreciate both your comments and your products. Loved the posts I read, and will definitely be looking forward to future ones. I am a new blogger, so will greatly appreciate any comments or suggestions you might consider sharing.

  185. wilsb8 says:

    Love your blog and thank you for the follow!

  186. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the follow. We redheads definitely have to find a way to combat the sunburns but luckily I do tan somewhat as long as I use some sunscreen :)

  187. Great site and a very important one. Thanks for bringing attention to skin cancer and thanks for your insight. Keep up the great work and take care!

  188. Thanks for following my blog justbrutusandme!
    I hate to admit but when I grew up along time ago, the trend was to smother ones exposed skin in baby oil and lay out in the sun and bake. As if that was not unhealthy enough- who knew back then- some, yes me, would hold up a big piece of tin foil to reflect the sun to make a hotter bake time. I am glad that people are smarter than that these days.. A lot of those people from my generation are now paying the price for their ignorance.

  189. Makeda says:

    Thanks for following my blog. You have some great stuff on here. Definitely gonna give the deodorant spray a try :)

  193. J M Naszady says:

    I was one of those twenty-somethings who didn’t like the greasy sunscreens available back in the dark ages. Now I have sun damage. Good for you protecting your family! Thanks for following my blog.

  194. Thanks for following Little Boo and Friends, I hope you enjoy it. Your sun sleeves are a fantastic idea – my husband is a red head and works outdoors here in Australia where the sun burns!!

  195. ciaostephi says:

    Hello There! Grazie for becoming a Ciao Stephi follower! I really like your incite on eco ideas! Those sleeves look really neat.

  196. journette says:

    Ha, I’m freckly too, and have spent most of my life in Singapore and Australia. I usually use SPF50+ (if there was SPF2,000, I’d probably buy it), and an umbrella. And sometimes a hat. And that’s just me walking to the metro or bus stop. :)

  197. cielotech says:

    Excellent work–really interesting site. I definitely will be a return customer and thank you for taking a look at my site. Take care. Bob

My oldest son is auburn color and my youngest and I have more strawberry blonde. We definitely have to watch our time in the sun and stay well protected. You have some really useful information here. I am glad you found me so that I could find you. :)

  201. Hi Happy Friday. I was just reading your post about ways to save water. You know I have never thought about having a container in the sink to catch water. I am going to do this because I have plenty of outdoor plants to water.
    Also, we want to thank you for following our blog we hope you are enjoying our posts and we look forward to hearing your thoughts.
    Evelyn

    I look forward to sharing comments on red-heads! I’m going to the beach next week on vacation. It’s a late spring, but I still need 110 sunscreen, per my doctor’s advice.

  203. Good morning this day after Easter. Another sunny day in the high desert. Just wanted to stop by and thank you for following my blog. Up here I could definitely use some sun-block. Look forward to seeing some of your posts.
