Aruba Aloe

Aruba Aloe is by far my favorite brand to go to when it comes to moisturizing my skin after a long, hot day in the sun. Aruba Aloe also has great products for everyday moisturizing, great sunscreens and scar repair lotion that, in my opinion, works better than any other scar formula on the market. If you follow me on social media, than you know one of my favorite vacation destinations is Aruba! I've been traveling to Aruba with my husband (before and after kids) for the last 20 years and trul...

And that is not always the order of the day!...

Each time I looked in the mirror with brown hair, I had a hard time recognizing myself.  I was blonde as a child and only had brown hair for maybe a decade before I started coloring it myself.  I just feel better blonde and feel lik...
