Aaron_Tiff_HOBFrom our family to yours, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas & Abundant New Year! Revel in the beauty of the season and take some time to slow down long enough to truly enjoy this time of year. Yes, the mall traffic is nuts… our to-do list for shopping/cooking/parties seems endless- but, make sure to take some time to pamper yourself.  As much as I love staying connected on social media, it’s more important to unplug and be totally present with your loved ones. I mean, isn’t everyone’s thumbs and necks stiff from all the cell phone use? 

Also, I’ve had several conversations lately about how so many of us have gone through major challenges and changes in 2013. If you have as well, consider yourself stronger & wiser as you go into 2014 sista! Challenges and changes strengthen, stretch and sharpen us. It may be unbearable when you’re in the midst of it, but shift your focus to how exciting it is that you are better equipped now. See yourself as a warrior! Pheww- I have gone through so many changes over the past year myself. I’ll be honest- I’ve had my pitty-party days, but as the year is ending I exhale and give thanks for everything I’ve learned, for the thicker skin and softer heart… and the fact that nothing killed me- it just made me stronger and it did you, too. 

You are ALL Warrior Women and I am so honored to be part of this Sista-hood with each and every one of you. 

I want to leave you all with one of my favorite Promises. Regardless of your religious beliefs, this is a great encouragement for the New Year:

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plan to PROSPER you and not to harm you, to give you HOPE and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Love, Tiff

SUN SOS: Protection Tips

beach bag giveaway2

Hey Sassy Sistas!

I’m sure you are gearing up for July 4th festivities (if you’re in the US) so I want to give you a few reminders for protecting yourself and your kiddos while you’re out by the pool, lake or beach.  Please be safe and have a blast! 

SPF

  • Apply sunscreen evenly to all uncovered skin, especially your lips, nose, ears, neck, hands, and feet.
  • Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure.
  • Make sure to apply sunscreen to the top of your head, or wear a hat if you are bald or have thinning hair.
  • Reapply every two hours.
  • Give babies and children extra care in the sun.
  • Apply sunscreen to children older than 6 months every time they go out in the sun regardless of how long.

Eye Protection

Sunlight reflecting off sand or water increases exposure to UV radiation and your risk of eye problems.

  • When buying shades, look for a label that says 99 to 100 percent UV protection.
  • Eyewear should be labeled “sunglasses.” There are tons of fashion glasses out there so make sure they are labeled properly.
  • Expensive sunglasses do not ensure greater UV protection.
  • People who wear contact lenses that offer UV protection should still wear sunglasses.
  • Wraparound sunglasses offer the most protection.
  • Children should wear real sunglasses, not toy sunglasses, that are labeled with the UV protection level.

Additional Tips

  • If you do get burned, apply a cold compress to the effected area followed by a thin layer of hydrocortisone cream.
  • Wear clothing, swimwear and hates made of UV protective fabrics.
  • Protect hair- especially color treated hair- with UV protective mouse or mist to keep hair from drying out and fading.
  • Keep a bottle of  hydrating spritzer on hand while outdoors to cool the skin.
  • Invest in a cute wide brimmed floppy hat to protect face, shoulders and decollate.
  • Wear an SPF 15 or higher lip protector and reapply every few hours.
  • Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate some more. Even if you are in the water, your body is perspiring so make sure to drink plenty of fluids.

HAPPY 4th of JULY!
