Happy May: Melanoma Awareness Month.

Happy May! 

I can't believe how fast this year is flying by. It is May 1st already and half of the year is almost over. I always look forward to this beautiful spring month when my tulips bloom, we celebrate Mother's Day and kick-off to summer on Memorial Day weekend at the end of the month. Oh, it is my birthday month too.

Look at how beautiful my tulips are! I took this photo over last weekend. The weather has been divine and my tulips are in full bloom.

May is also Melanoma Awareness Month. Melanoma is the deadly form of skin cancer. One person dies from melanoma every minute of every day. It is a very alarming statistic. In honor of Melanoma Awareness Month, I am going to be featuring a lot of items over the rest of the month that have to do with sun protection. Not just as in suntan lotion. I plan to cover makeup and skin care that contains SPF. Also, for those of us who like a (faux) tan, I am going to feature self-tanners and bronzers too - alternatives to tanning. I am even going to finally write out my self-tanning routine (I'm known for how real looking my self-tan is, even fooling two top makeup artists) guaranteed to have you looking like you spent the weekend in St. Barts, but you won't have to step a foot out in the sun.

I promise not to bore you with only sun, spf and self-tanning items. I still have spring products to talk about and new summer collections are popping up everyday, so I will be featuring them too. It's a busy month and I hope you enjoy it with me.
