spell discomfort

Before I even had the chance to write a product review about a particular exfoliant I received for free (paid a little for shipping, though) from SampleRoom, I already thought about postponing this itinerary a little further. You see, I have just been to the annual beach party courtesy of the in-laws and had been swimming big time under the sun. As a consequence, this didn't really do my skin any good. I think I'm going to be peeling not because of the exfoliant (I have only used it for 2 days)  but because of sunburn. The procrastinator in me made me forget again to buy the sunblock that should have given my skin the best protection it needs. Fortunately, sister-in-law has shared to us her skin whitening lotion with SPF20. While it did work for some of us in the family, my skin still felt very sore from the heat of the sun even when I had SPF20 lotion on. Anyway, I am glad that husband and daughter didn't seem to have the same complaints as I did about the sun's heat getting through the skin. As for me, the itching and pain due to skin having a sunburn is quite an uncomfortable experience.

beach time with family

We are counting the days. Oh, we're almost ready to take that dip in the beach. This weekend, we're going to Dalaguete to have an enjoyable beach time with husband's family. They (my in-laws) do this every year. Planning for an annual summer beach party with family has already become part of the family tradition. There is always a day planned out for a yearly summer beach outing that members of the family are already expected to keep their schedules vacant to accommodate this activity.

I don't have any idea what Dalaguete is like and I don't  know yet which specific beach resort we would go but I heard that there are a lot of beautiful beaches there. Hopefully,  we would find that out on Saturday when we get to in-laws' place. Hmmm, I had better check if my batteries for the camera can handle all the shots that I am planning to take on that day. I want to make sure I would be able to capture the beauty of the place and the fun moments with family.

taking advantage of the fun summer

Summer is definitely just around the corner... Or isn't it here already? Obviously, this is already time to plan for a fun summer beach outing. Nearly all of us would like to have loads of fun with family and friends at the beach. Indeed, it is important that we find ourselves some time to make ourselves available for our loved ones. After all, we are also entitled to have a really good tan, right? Anyway, while most of us are planning for this family beach outing during summer time, companies and politicians are also getting busy cooking up their marketing strategies in order for them to get that brand recognition and popularity they needed. Earlier this year, I have seen lots of advertisements printed on tarpaulins and they can be seen in places that are widely visible to the public. This summer, politicians who want to be remembered during Election time (I am not really sure if this is allowed, though) and companies that want to spread product and consumer awareness can capitalize on this part of the year through promotional beach towels and other essentials which they can offer as giveaways to the local beach goers and vacationers.  Surely, this is a practical way for them to take advantage of the fun times during summer. As for me, I would be happy to receive beach essentials as freebies. How about you? :-)

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
