    Wow the sun film is powerful! I knew it had an impact, but especially at the end of the film it is very interesting. Essential to protect yourself.

      Anne: A bit scary, right?! I usually wear face makeup with SPF in it but after seeing this video, I’m realizing it’s probably still not enough.

    This is by far one of the best Link Loves in a while! :) Every article is just so spot on! The sun film is by far the best I’ve seen on wearing sunscreen! And that ballpoint font is already pending purchase! I’m working on some programs, and that font is just a very lovely script! :)

    HI Shauna!

    Loved the links you shared. But whoa, that liking everything on Facebook one was SUPER scary, and insightful. Definitely makes me think I’m going to start asking myself more often how I really feel before just liking something :)

    My town is one of the two most heavily hit by this year’s catastrophic Balkan floods and now we have to think about renovating – I’ll send that bathroom remodel link to my mom straight away.
