SCIENCE FUN AT IT’S BEST!

This week, we are going to have some fun with science, color mixing, and learning patience. Have you ever made ROCK CANDY? But this week it is called Steven Universe’s “Crystal Gem” Candy. – Print PDF!

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!

We decided to make RUBY RED CANDY! What I like the most about this activity was a lot of the items were things we already had around the house!

Virtual #CampWarnerBros Week 2- Science Fun!
  • Glass Jar
  • Pencil
  • Paper Clip
  • String
  • Food Coloring
  • 3 cups of Sugar
  • Water
  • Funnel- this helped a lot but it is optional

Since you will be working with hot liquids, make sure that there is adult supervision at all times! It was a fun activity, but remember when I mention PATIENCE- well, it takes some time to get that sugar to form on the string, so you need to give it time. We gave a good 12 hours, and it still needed more time.

MOVIE- Steven Universe: The Movie

After your candy forms, make sure you are ready to WATCH Steven Universe: The Movie! Which, by the way, the movie is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD! After so many harrowing adventures, Steven and the Gems are ready to celebrate how far they’ve come with a movie musical! Little do they know they’re about to face their worst enemy yet.

The Crystal Gems are a team of magical beings who are the self-appointed guardians of the universe. They are Half-human, half-Gem, and hero Steven is the “little brother” of the group. He is learning how to save the world using the magical powers that come from his belly button, and he goes on magical adventures with the rest of the Crystal Gems. Steven always finds a way to SAVE the world.

As an adult, yes, cartoons can be FUN, but look for the meaning in the movie, and you will have gain some Steven knowledge!

Alright, we are READY for Week 3- which is going to be so much fun! Slime lovers will want to tune in NEXT FRIDAY to our activity Gummy Bear Slime! And the show will be We Bare Bears: The Movie!

Summer Essentials for 2020
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Let’s start with MAKEUP

Now I’m not a makeup fan but of my daughter is, and she loves to play around with different brands, but Ruby Kisses is one of her favorite.  The reason why she loves Ruby Kisses is that the colors are very diverse. She is mixed and has a hard time matching her skin tone, but Ruby Kisses, they have her covered!

Shady Rays Sunglasses with Protective Pouch
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I love sunglasses. I can’t go anywhere without them. The worst thing about sunglasses is the cost for a good pair that works. I also tend to lose them frequently which is frustrating especially when you consider the cost. Recently I had the chance to try out Shady Rays.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary

The beach is one of my very favorite places in the world to be. So, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to skin care products I love it when I find a quality line of lotions, bath products, and other personal care choices that not only nourish and care for my skin but also can transport me right down to the water’s edge with a breezy, tropical scent.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary - Nubian Heritage Mango Butter Collection
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Nubian Heritage is one of a few favorite brands when it comes to both keeping my skin looking and feeling great, as well as providing a nice variety of scents that I love. Our sense of smell is central to everything we do from preparing delicious meals to recalling nostalgic personal memories to promoting calm and relaxing atmospheric ambiance in our surroundings. It’s no wonder that companies that produce essential oils and diffusers, candles, potpourri, perfume and cologne, air fresheners, etc. are such a big business. We all use these products to invoke a response from within to find peace and calm in our lives.

Repair and Protect Hair and Skin from the Harsh Summer Weather

One of my lease favorite seasons is summer. I live in the South and it’s always 100+ degrees, even late into October. The heat damages my skin and leaves me a sweaty mess. This does not bode well for my naturally oily skin.

The application and re-application of sunscreen and make up leaves my skin clogged and looking rough. The scorching sun usually leaves me with redness and burns. Because of this, I am super careful with the products that I apply to my skin.

Detox and Correct Skin after Harmful UV Rays and Chemicals

good4u skincare

Clear Your Skin – Tox-Block & Cleanse Supplement detoxes the liver which, in turn, detoxes chemicals from the skin and blood stream. Supplements are easy to swallow and do not have a weird taste. When taken twice per day, skin improves by reducing redness and inflammation.

-Milk thistle – supports the liver in its hard work of processing chemicals and toxins
-Curcumin – a bioactive component of turmeric, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to offset stress, soothe and calm
-N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) – counters toxins and inflammation
-Alpha-Lipoic Acid – helps prevent cell damage and restore levels of vitamins E and C

Clear Your Skin – Decongest Fruit Enzyme Creme Mask After a long day of sweat and make-up running down my face, I like to give my pores a nice deep clean without striping my face and causing damages. The cream is nice and provides cooling relief in the dead of summer.

-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness
-Organic Pineapple Enzymes – gently sweep away dead skin cells to smooth texture, clear pores, and add glowOrganic
-Papaya Enzymes – reduce redness and spotchiness, exfoliate, tone, and help cool blemishes

Clear Your Skin – Resurfacing 1% Retinol Serum I use this at night to repair my cells after hours of sun exposure. It leaves no greasy feel and is perfect for recharging skin at the end of a long day.

-Retinol – supports skin elasticity and renewal, helps address the look of scars, fine lines and wrinkles
-Calendula – speed healing of minor blemishes, bring calm and balance bacteria
-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness

Keep the Little Ones Protected Too!

Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

Summer is coming to a close. My son is headed back to school this week.  This was our first summer in our new home. This is our second summer back in California too!  How is your summer? We’ve been busy trying new recipes and making homemade beauty goodies!  Get ready for our Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars!

Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

This summer, I learned to balance my time between housework, blog, social media, and fitness. There were times when I recognized that my son needed to get out, we both did, so I would go for a walk. I made it an adventure for him. We walk by 3 playgrounds on our walk, depending on the distance. Many times, we only went by 2 playgrounds. Regardless, he’d play on each of them for about 5-10 minutes!  We usually went for a walk in the morning before it would get too hot and the playgrounds were empty!

How to Protect Yourself From Summer Bugs

One of my least favorite things about summer are the summer bugs. Usually, I avoid them like the plague. Unfortunately, I decided to move, during the summer, to a new apartment, which requires me to take Coda for walks outside. As much as I love being outdoors, I hate getting attacked by the myriad of bugs the warmer months bring. Thankfully, I was sent Stay Away Mosquitos, from Earth Kind, to keep those nasty bugs at bay.
