Last Saturday we headed to Lake Martin for AquaPalooza with the Lamberths!!
We enjoyed the sunshine and live music at Kowaliga Beach!!

We didn't go the entire time as we were afraid the kids would be worn out. We did make it in time to see Rhett Akins and Sawyer Brown. To see all the artist that day go here.

The Lamberths also took us on a boat ride before the concert.
L and T and on the boat

We enjoyed a little hubby skiing

The new BC Spa Facial products, combined with the incredible new fragrances, color products and other additions to our specialty line are just a few of the reasons that BeautiControl continues to be one of the most compelling cosmetic companies in this industry.

Even with all the new, and ultra-exciting to our line in the past few years, there are still some of those tried-and-true client favorites that continue to build client loyalty and offer those "BeautiControl Results" that our client love.

$5 Movie

Did you know that from 4-5:30 everyday you can go to the movie theater for $5 each? That is cheaper that the matinee!! At least here you can so check your local movie theater's website to make sure. Also, you can get a rewards card that you swipe everytime you pay for your movie and get anything at the concession stand. It is figured by the dollar amount you spend and you can eventually get a free movie ticket. We don't go to the movie very often so I haven't figured out all the details yet.

Last week T went to see Cars 2 with his girlfriend L (the $5 movie). Don't worry, both mommies were there so they were well supervised.

Cars 2 was cute. The kids and mommies enjoyed it!!!

Don't Let the Sun Keep You In Shade This Summer!

Everyone loves summer! Whether it is time away from school, summer vacations or just those long, hot summer days, it seems like summer is the season to be outdoors. No matter what part of the country you live, the fact is that today’s summer sun is not the same sun as it used to be. With the decreasing ozone layer and increased air pollution, the UV index is at an all time high. All of these factors combined can wreak havoc on your skin, causing damage to your skin. While we all know we should avoid getting burned, we don’t always take into consideration the invisible damage that takes place under the surface of the skin, the skin you can’t see. The problem with this type of damage is that even though it affects the skin you can’t see today, it is causing damage to the skin you will see in the future. For this reason, I thought we would take a few minutes to review some summer sun tips and facts as well as some other summer product tips to help increase your sales during these summer months.

First, it is important to explain exactly why we have an increased need for skin protection during the summer months. There are several factors that contribute to skin damage. The most obvious, of course, is the sun. Less obvious contributors to damage include excessive pollution, reduction in skin hydration and exposure to chemicals such as chlorine, insect repellant, etc.

The sun provides many nutritional benefits that get overshadowed by all the negative media regarding skin cancer. Striking a healthy balance between solar-phobe and sun worshiper is key to keeping your entire system running as it should. The value of the sun would include the production of Vitamin D, a glowing suntan and general feeling of well-being would be a few.
The sun’s energy travels here via ultra violet radiation and comes in three types: UVA, UVB and UVC. Ultraviolet rays are most intense during the hours of 10am and 4pm.

UV wavelengths are very small and penetrate our flesh and change the structure of our skin cells. UVC has the shortest wavelengths and is extremely dangerous. Fortunately for us, it is completely absorbed by the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Unfortunately, both UVA and UVB can cause damage to our skin cells and DNA if caution is not taken when exposing our skin to the sun.

Think of UVA rays as the “aging” rays.

Think of UVB rays as the “burning” rays.

While we all know to avoid a sunburn, we don’t always realize that UVA rays can cause the most dangerous invisible forms of damage. The trouble with these types of rays is that we don’t always take appropriate precaution from them if we don’t consider ourselves sun-lovers. Driving in your car or sitting near a window are potential examples of the damage that we don’t think about. This is the reason that a daily application of sun protection is necessary to protect the skin.

Skin color begins down in the deepest level of your epidermis, where special cells called "melanocytes" live. These melanocytes are cells, with many arms that reach up into the upper levels of the skin cells. Melanocytes make a dark chemical called "melanin". Now here's something really interesting - a blonde Scandinavian has roughly the same number of melanocytes in their skin, as a black African. What gives the different skin color is the way that a person’s body processes the melanin within the skin.

Melanin is the body’s own sunscreen, so it is rational to see why the darker a person’s skin, or the easier a person can tan, the more resistant a person is to sun damage. The lighter a person’s skin, and the easier a person burns, shows a distinct intolerance to the sun. Since melanin is the body’s natural sun protection, it makes sense to know that a freckle is actually a cluster of potentially vulnerable skin cells that have been surrounded by melanin as a means of skin protection. The more freckles a person has, the more susceptible a person is to skin damage.

I have to also interject this fact into the equation – tanning beds do not offer a safe alternative to a natural suntan. The same rays that tan your skin in the sunlight, are the same rays that tan your skin in a tanning bed. If you should choose to take this route, you should use the same level of protection that you would choose if you were in the sun.

So, with that out of the way, let’s discuss the types of sun protection available today.

Sunscreens come in two forms – chemical sunscreens and physical sunscreens.

•Chemical Sunscreen: A chemical sunscreen, works by chemically absorbing UV rays. Some chemical sunscreens absorb ONLY UVB rays and some absorb only UVA rays. In formulations with chemical sunscreens, multiple forms of sunscreen ingredients are used to offer both UVA and UVB protection.
•Physical Sunscreen: A physical sunscreen works by deflecting UVA and UVB rays. Titanium or Zinc oxide are the most commonly used physical compounds that provide a physical block on the skin to prevent UVA and UVB exposure. Unlike chemical sunscreens, physical sunscreens deflect the light and prevent the absorption of any UV rays into the skin, which is one of the reasons that we use physical block sunscreens in our BC Spa facial and Cell Block C formulas.
The bottom line is sunshine on your skin in moderate doses is very healthy. We should bask in the sun every single day. Remember if you want to lay out for longer periods work yourself up to it first. Don't be afraid of the sun! The sun heals wounds, improves skin tone and complexion, helps rid acne, and even diminishes the appearance of scars, cellulite and stretch marks. With the proper precautions, and the use of your BC Spa Facial moisturizers, and our incredible Skinlogics Lip Balm SPF 20, you can enjoy the sun without the risk of skin damage.

Trash Bags

I hate buying trash bags. Why? Because you throw them away. I feel like they are just a waste of money. I hate smelling the trash so I like to take it out every day or every other day. That adds up to even more waste because I would end up with a only a half full bag when it was time to take it out.

Growing up, my dad put on of these on the inside kitchen cabinet door for my mom.

My sweet, handy husband made one for the inside of our kitchen cabinet door.

I love that I can use grocery store bags for trash bags and save money that way and have another use for the plastic bags!!

In my post a while back from a grocery shoping trip, you will see trash bags in that picture. I purchased these for clean up in Alabama after the tornadoes. I didn't keep these. Just didn't want you to think I was saying one thing and doing another.

Cut it up

When something is running out do you throw it away? Do you squeeze the last drop out? Do you cut it open?

As you can see I cut it open!!! I have gotten usually a week or more extra use out by cutting things open.
Of course you always want to place the product on its top, place where product come out. Like the baby lotion I will place on it's top when it starts running low. Lots of products are already on their tops, like the two other items above, but if not place them on their to get the product to the bottom before you cut it open.

If you are going to cut it open, make sure you are going to use it pretty quickly so it doesn't dry out.
Also, cut the top piece big enough that it will slide over the bottom part to keep the product from drying out.

I hate being wasteful so this is a way I have found to get all the goody out!!
Happy Cutting to get more for your money and not be wasteful!!

Summer Swing

We have enjoyed going to Summer Swing. We have only been twice but we had a blast!!! I forgot my camera the first time that we went so I had to take pictures with my phone. My husband grew up listening to Neil Diamond, my father in-law still listens to it in his truck, so I knew he would enjoy the Neil Diamond impersonator. T taking a break from the playground so I could snatch a picture The wonderful Neil Diamond impersonator. Y'all, he sounded just like Neil. This is our favorite song by Neil Diamond....

The next time we went to see Route 66. One of the singers and bass player was Dr. Smith, he delivered T. Route 66 was great!!! They certainly didn't disappoint!! They played a wide genra of music from Michael Buble to Zac Brown Band and Wild Cherry. They offered a little something for everyone. We saw the Chick-fil-a cow the second time we went!! My 2 boys Dancing and Singing up a storm...pretty sure he was playing the air guitar here...

Summer To Dos

My friend Addie, shared this great idea on her blog here and I knew T would love doing this too!!!
You can so tell I lack artistic ability from the lack of decoration
on our list. Doing 2 colors stretched my artistic muscle enough (I didn't want
to make it too girly since it's for my little man).
Slowly maybe my ability (or lack there of) will get better!!

We have already marked several off since this picture was taken!! Plus we added
two more per T's request...Herb Garden and Yogurt Mountain.
Here's a closer look...

Here are two things we've already done...
1. Pillowcase
T does good sleeping in his bed (for the most part) but there are those occasional nights where he wakes up and comes in our room. He is like me and doesn't like the dark so I can relate more than my hubby can. I saved this idea from ParentLife in February 2009. It's like the Lord knew I would need this and told me to save it. I took the basic idea of the Family Garden below. I thought it looked a little too feminine for T so we just did each of our hands. Thanks to my friend Nikki for sharing this verse, Psalm 4:8 with me. I was going to use Joshua 1:9 put this verse was even more perfect.

2. Frog Legs

The climb up

The blur down

He must have thought he was still at the beach!!

T and new friend B

Have a safe and happy 4th!! Thank you Lord for the free country we live in!! Please don't turn your back on America even though it turns farther and farther from You God.
