Did you REALLY stay out of the sun?

Recommended Posts

I'm an outdoorsy one, so I love to be out in the surf, hiking, tennis, biking, etc... The Sun will darken me no matter what , evenso I wear a hat, sunglasses, and the best sunscreen called La Roche Posay Anthelios 50+. I found that two years ago when I saw a strange bump on my nose that turned out to be nothing, but before I knew if was nothing I searched for the best sunscreen. This brand from France blocks out almost all UVA and UVB and has been used in many other countries since the early 90's. Its the European doctors number one recommended sunscreen. The US is just starting to allow it in, but not at the maximum percent Sun Block. They are letting in ten percent and the lower levels. I get mine from Ebay.

It didn't show in the pics though.
I am exactly the same I burn through factor 30! In one way i'm dreading it because i have a horrible feeling i'll be lobster and FI will be lush and tanned - the sun just has to look at him and he goes golden! the git

I was in the DR 9 days before my wedding. Staying out of the sun was not an option since I have a 5 year old, we were out from morning til night. I wore nothing but strappless, and lot's of sunscreen. Remembering to sunscreen was easy since I was on mom duty and keeping my kids from being burnt was top on my list of important things to do. I was lucky that it was August when I got married so I had a good base, but I was still careful as the sun is so much stronger then it is here. I also didn't want to be to dark since I really like my white skin, and wanted to look like me, I also love the contrast in Everton's and my skin, I think it looks beautiful together.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
