That's cute!!! But you didn't get the long sleeves, did you? I'd imagine that would be too hot.

re: Body Glide, chafing, blisters, etc...

I found a product at Walgreens the other day called Slik Stik, that seems to be the same thing as Body Glide. Aparantly Band-Aid now has a similar product, which I also found there, for almost twice the price! The Band-Aid version was about $7, and this stuff was like $3.50. It was over in the foot care section, not with the band aids.

Slik Stik

Anyone else ever try this product? I would think it would work at least as well as the deodorant trick!

Wink ...a few ideas for my sisters...

...the stick deodorants work great against chafing/rubbing.
* But, for the feet to help guard against pressure blisters etc while still in the parks...I always carry some pre-cut moleskins in my body bag. I cut some long, some short, some wide, some round...So that whatever the part of our feet that "feels" like it's getting ready to blister...we're ready for it...BEFORE the blister happens. Can't tell you how much those have helped. Now they even have generic moleskins...but, we still buy the name brands. I think the padding and the adhesive is of a better quality....IMO.
* Also...another essential....lip moisturizer....@ home, we've got'em in every room of the house.
* And, depending on the time of year you'll be travelling to DW....a cornstarch based body powder is a huge help with the humidity.

* foundation-wise...it depends on your preference...we know now, that the skin is actually better off with something on it, than not...moisturizer, foundation...whatever..will shield it from varying environmental factors that could have damaging effects.
....if you like a lighter foundation...or no foundation...look for a moisturizer with a bit of tint to it. These usually include some spf to help protect your skin against the sun's damaging rays. If you prefer a little more coverage...try setting the moisturizer with a bit of loose mineral powder. These are lovely....and non-clogging...actually good for your skin.
* I don't know about you...but some of us have areas of our heads that can burn...like around our parts....and our ears....so it doesn't hurt to use a non-oily spf spray up there....or around the ears. I can't tell you...how many of my clients over the years...golfers/gardeners...or just outdoor enthusiasts have had skin cancers removed from the tops of their ears...or inside the folds of their ears....just because they never thought to apply tanning lotion there.....
.....i know this is a bit wordy.. ..but, i thought it went along with the theme....

To prevent "Chub Rub", simple baby powder works great for me! Just rub some on after your shower in the morning or before you head out into the parks.

Bag idea for in the park

My fiance and I are going on our honeymoon next week and I bought a new backpack for me to carry in the parks. Backpacks for me are difficult because I am :ahem: well endowed in the chest department so when this one came in the mail, I was thrilled. It's just the right size and it fits me like a glove. It is a Dakine Portal and it comes with straps that expand really far out and also has a small lunchbox size cooler in the front to carry water and everything you need to keep cold. I ordered it from www.bagking.com. They have a bunch of different types, even ones made exclusively for women. I recommend it highly

A Way to help save for Vacation

Pay an extra 10% on your utility bills for ten months to year before your trip. If you do this then you can skip the utility bills the month of your vacation and have that extra money for the trip. Example: Water bill averages $60.00 per month: Pay $66.00 for twelve months $6 x 12 month = $72 credit the month of your trip. No water bill that month.

lord have mercy is so right!!! Ive had problems with getting blisters on my ankles when I go on vacation and the moleskins are a lifesaver! Ive used them for years! It helps so much, if you have a blister, it really helps with the pain as well. They are excellent. Definetly a must.

and definetly pay attention to your ears and your hair part! I have been sunburned on my part more times then I can count, and im more careful now. I always sunscreen my ears too. Make sure to get behind your ears and on the back of your neck too, its very easy to sunburn there with the sun beating down on you all day.

Everyone should pay attention and make sure to apply sunscreen on exposed skin, it can really damage you if your not careful. I went on vacation in wyoming when I was little and went horseback riding. I got sunburned so badly on my shoulders that my skin has never been the same since. They go pink within ten minutes of being outside, and I have to be very careful not to get sunburned there because the skin is so sensitive.

....there's so many out now. anything that's non-oily will work. there's some out there for thinning hair even.(like for my DH I don't know if they still have it...but, a couple of years ago....Avon even had something out... There are some that are non-aerosol and aerosol also. I guess it's you're personal preference. But, just make sure it's not oily....for your hair....that would be a little icky.... .......

I wear a pair of men's boxer briefs under a skirt to keep my thighs from rubbing. It was a suggestion from my SIL and it works great!

wash your hair in the morning and tie it back without drying it as your wet hair will help keep you a little bit cooler

Humity advice for Curly heads

I leave in the deep south so the humity fight is an uphill battle. I have found something that works pretty good with the frizz. It's called Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Cream. I have thick curly hair with lots of frizz. This seems to tame it really pretty good. It also helps it stay in the pony tail. It's not very heavy so it does not weigh the hair down.

Does the mennen work better than the body glide? I'm heading to the store tomorrow for this stuff!
