LogicInk UV Day Tattoo: Know When You’ve Had Enough Sun Exposure

You don’t need to step outside to realize we are experiencing an incredible heatwave. So dangerous that a heat index warning has been issued, outdoor events have been canceled and people are encouraged to stay indoors until it’s over. While days like this are few and we heed the warnings, on a typical day, you may not realize just how much sun exposure you’re getting. Did you know there are an estimated 4.3 million cases of BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) diagnosed in the U.S. each year and there’s no sign of that slowing down? It’s way past the time we need to know about the harmful effects of UV overexposure. Here’s a question to yourselves, how do you know when you’ve had enough sun exposure for the day? With the LogicInk UV day tattoo, you can. It’s the future of health wearables.

Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo

LogicInk UV is designed to measure the cumulative effect of one day in the sun. The outer circle and bar turn fully pink when you reach the daily UV limit for sensitive skin; this is based on data from the World Health Organization. The inner circle and dot show the current UV exposure in real-time. In the above photo, you will see a pink spot; this is the measurement of sun exposure I had prior to applying the LogicInk. I had not yet gone back into the sun while wearing it. As you can see, it’s already letting me know how much sun exposure I’ve had. You’ll also notice the inner circle has no color, indicating I’m not currently exposed to the sun as I was indoors.

Upon venturing outside, you’ll notice the inner circle has now turned pink, showing my real-time, full exposure to the sun. As previously stated, the LogicInk UV day tattoo signals when you’ve had enough sun for the day. Applied to your skin like a temporary tattoo, the waterproof adhesive is gentle on the skin, yet resilient enough to last in the ocean or pool. LogicInk UV is even compatible with sunscreen; just apply the LogicInk UV on clean, dry skin, then apply sunscreen over your skin and on LogicInk.  The sunscreen is designed to expire faster from LogicInk’s surface than it does on your skin. This is a helpful early warning to reapply sunscreen or get some shade.

While you don’t need a smartphone to see your UV exposure status, there is an optional mobile app that lets you scan your LogicInk “tattoo” to track UV exposure patterns over longer periods of time. LogicInk UV day tattoos are available in single or on subscription-based purchases. Get 10 for $39.00 as a single purchase or 15 for $29/month, and 30 for $79.00 if you subscribe.

Travel Must-Haves for Women

Travel Tips & Tricks: 5 Items All Women Need While Traveling

Ladies, summer is the perfect time for traveling. But whether you’re headed to the 597 square miles of Oahu or the 3,000 miles of Ireland coastline, you have some serious packing to do. And it’s no secret that packing can be an absolute nightmare — from choosing the right clothes to trying to fit everything into your bag, packing can be a long process. So to ensure packing, and your actual trip, go well, here are 5 things all women need while traveling – these travel tips & tricks are a must. You will want to invest in these.

Travel Must-Haves for Women

We’re not talking about the right dress or shoes. These are the essentials you will need to ensure your travel plans go as smoothly as possible. Ready for the must-have travel tips & tricks?

A Great Toiletry Bag

Zuca TSA-Approved Toiletry Bags

Whether you’re going on a quick weekend trip or a month-long excursion, there are going to be a lot of toiletries you’ll need. And while it can be tempting to simply throw your toiletries into your bag, you’ll regret this later on. So make sure you find a great toiletry bag, preferably clear for TSA purposes, that can properly store all of your toiletries. Consider one that has compartments for easy organization or one that you can hang on the bag of a door to clearly see all of your items. You can even get a separate bag for medications, like pain killers, prescription meds, or other pills for premenstrual syndrome or allergies. Zuca has great travel options for your health and beauty travel needs. A good toiletry bag can make a big difference. Their Utility Pouches are fully-lined with durable, easy to clean clear vinyl ideal for organizing your beauty products and the Zuca Flyer Packing Pouch Set includes five packing pouches of various sizes and a one quart TSA compliant toiletry bag.

Packing Cubes

Mumi color-coded Travel Packing Cubes

Speaking of organization, packing cubes are a must-have. Not only can it be difficult to fit all of your clothes and belongings in your bag, but it can be impossible to keep them organized. Fortunately, packing cubes can keep your items organized and neat. Packing cubes can fit in almost any suitcase or bag and you can easily separate your clothing with them — consider using one cube for heavier clothes, one for lighter clothes, one for underwear and socks, and one for accessories. This way, you’ll be able to easily find whatever you’re looking for. The above Mumi Packing Cubes (set of 5) is a wonderful, versatile color-coded option. Each lightweight cube is designed to save space and simplify packing (and unpacking) to maximize luggage space, travel organized, and reduce mess. We love it even more because you can personalize them.

A Quick-Drying Towel

Laguna Blue Quick Drying Antibacterial Towels

You never know when you’re going to need a towel — whether you’re camping, at a hostel that doesn’t provide towels, or if you decide to randomly jump into a stream you happen to come across, having a towel on hand is always a good idea. This is especially true if you’re one of the 58 million people who go to a gym every year and you may need to dry off after a workout. Having a quick-drying towel will keep you dry and moving quickly. We love Laguna Blue, the smart towel. Not only is it quick-drying, but these 100% microfiber fabric towels are also antibacterial.

A Safety Alarm

Sabre Personal Safety Alarm

When you’re traveling, you want to remain as safe as possible. For burglaries and similar crimes, police report only being able to solve 13% of cases due to lack of evidence and witnesses. Thus, it’s important to enact smart safety precautions, especially when you’re in unfamiliar territory. This is true of traveling in groups, avoiding suspicious situations, and keeping personal security equipment. And while pepper spray or mace may seem like good items to have on hand, they’re not legal everywhere. There are two great options from Sabre that are great options. The above Sabre Personal Alarm with Clip & LED Light is easy to activate. With one press of a button, it blasts an attention-getting 120 dB alarm audible up to 600 feet (185 m) away. It also boasts an LED flashlight with on, slow flash, and fast flash modes. It’s weather-proof and clips to clothing, bag, waistband, etc.

Sabre Personal Safety Alarm Keychain

The even more discreet Sabre Personal Alarm with Key Ring boasts the same attention-getting 120 dB siren, is sleek, compact and its modern keychain attaches to your backpack, purse or keys for convenient, instant access; just pull its metal chain from device to sound 120 dB alarm. You can’t go wrong with either of these personal safety alarms. So consider having a personal safety alarm on you. All you have to do is press the button and a very loud sound will go off, alerting anyone near you to your location so they can help if you’re in danger.

Shoe Bags

Mumi Travel Shoe bags

You’re most likely bringing a few different pairs of shoes on your trip, especially if you have a lot of different activities planned. But when you wear your shoes outside, they get dirt and other debris on them. And if you just throw them in your bag as is, they’re going to get all of your clothes and belongings dirty, too. This is why you should have a shoe bag for each pair of shoes you’re bringing. Shoe bags simply slip over your shoes to contain whatever mess they’ll make — this can also help you keep your shoes together and organized. You can coordinate your Mumi Shoe bags (seen above) with your packing cubes for your stylish color-coded travel needs.

Traveling is a great experience and you’re probably getting excited about your upcoming trip. So keep these items in mind to make your trip hassle-free and truly amazing.

creamy lipsticks

Impromptu The Lola Collection: Life & Lipstick Unscripted

To be beautiful inside an out means to give selflessly of yourself while celebrating your outward beauty. It’s not a difficult thing to do as we will show with the great lipsticks from Impromptu The Lola Collection. This stunning collection of lipsticks, which we were introduced to at Consumer Product Events, celebrates beauty, inside and out. Impromptu’s premiere line of moisturizing lip colors, The Lola Collection, utilizes a thoughtfully developed list of ingredients while also keeping in mind those with rare allergies.

Impromptu The Lola Collection was inspired by Founder Leyna Topete’s mother, Lola, who developed an allergic reaction to her favorite cosmetic product: lipstick. Most of us never think about not being able to wear lipstick, if we don’t, it’s usually by choice. When it comes to lipsticks, the most difficult decision for most women is what color to wear. But for Lola, the thought of not being able to wear lipstick again was devastating. What else could a loving daughter do than help her mother enjoy her favorite beauty product than create her own!

The creamy lipstick collection includes richly intense hues from a coffee and cream Café Con Leche, a warm fuchsia Ribbon in the Sky, to a decadent wine-stained I Got You Babe, a sassy violet-tinted The Bronx, and the purest red of reds: Ooh-Rah, a color that celebrates the strength, honor, and pride of today’s female U.S. Marines.

The Lola Collection is born out of love, dedicated to women like Lola, and all women who find inspiration in Impromptu and the “life unscripted” lifestyle. Impromptu also supports our women in uniform by visiting military bases and giving them a splash of color with free Impromptu lipstick. Every purchase you make on the Impromptu.Life website allows them to give back to women in the military in the form of events, beauty makeovers, and gifts of product.

You can purchase the lipsticks from The Lola Collection individually for $22.00 each, or buy the entire collection, the set of all five colors for $100.00.

Let’s Sleep In: Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow

As one who cherishes sleep (those late night blog writing sessions do catch up), and typically experiences sweltering nights of sleep, having good solutions for a more restful night of sleep is essential. How do you enjoy a more restful and less humid night of sleep? With the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, of course, a shredded style combination pillow that never goes flat, keeps you cool while you sleep, and never loses support.

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, developed by Dr. Rick Swartzburg, D.C., is one of four Snuggle-Pedic products that help you enjoy a Mattress. What makes the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow different from other Down pillows? While other Down pillows are comfortable and conforming, they constantly need to be fluffed, they do not hold their shape throughout the night, they are a problem for those that suffer from feather allergies, they can be too dense and heavy, which in our case really makes us sweat while we sleep.

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow uses a proprietary mix of very special hypo-allergenic and extremely low V.O.C. Biogreen® memory foam and CertiPUR-US® certified foam. These small pieces are extremely soft and fluffy and make the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow lighter and more resilient than the typical shredded memory foam pillows found on the market.

While the Snuggle-Pedic conforms to your neck and head for proper orthopedic support, the fluffy, yet resilient and light fill used in the Snuggle-Pedic pillows will return adjust to every position you sleep in. The soft and luxurious Kool-Flow™ Micro-Vented Bamboo Cover, along with the soft and fluffy interlocking foam pieces offer an unprecedented breathability that allows air to circulate through the pillow and keep you cool all night long!

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow is a top rated pillow on Amazon, with over 7000 Amazon reviews. It comes available in three sizes and currently is available for special sale prices – standard, regularly $119.00, on sale for $49.99, queen regularly $149.00, on sale for $59.99, and king regularly $197.00, on sale for $69.99.

Could the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow help you get a more restful night of sleep?

We’re talking about BeachTacs!

Get ready for the new must-have beach product! BeachTacs are a combination of towel clips and drink holders that should be an essential part of your summer trips to the beach, whether you’re heading to the shores near you, or going away on vacation. We’ve all experienced the annoying tasks of chasing down wayward blankets and towels that have literally “gone with the wind”, we’ve all either had our bags, fellow beachgoers (friends and family of course), and even beverages act as paperweights, so our towels don’t fly away. Of course more often than not, a strong gust of wind will topple that beverage right onto the towels, leaving you thirsty, most likely a cup of sandy beverage, and with a wet towel. You can change all that with BeachTacs.

With its astonishingly simple design to hold your beach towel and drink in place, it will have you spending less time worrying, and more time having fun. BeachTacs are US patented, and are manufactured, using the high-quality plastic. Each package includes an 8 piece set to lock down all four corners of your towel into the sand without putting a hole or ripping your towel, plus it will hold any drink container under 2.5” diameters.

The set breakdown includes: four child proof easy locking stakes, three easy locking caps, one easy locking cup holder, and a reusable carrying tote with an inside slot for holding keys, your ID and more. This beach necessity, which retails for $12.99, comes in three colors, including Sky Blue, Pretty in Pink, and Sunshine Yellow, and is available at Walmart, Big 5 Sporting Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon, Zulily, RK Shopping Network, as well as their website, www.BeachTacs.com.
