Keeping Coral Reefs Safe While Protecting Children

Every parent is concerned about the time their children spend in the sun. Kids just want to get out there and enjoy the warm rays. It's well known that overexposure to sun can damage delicate skin, destroy skin cells and potentially cause and contribute to skin cancer in the future. This can happen unless delicate skin is protected with a high quality sunscreen. The most harmful rays are UV rays, so these are the sun's rays that most sunscreens shield skin from.

But did you know that sunscreens which contain several commonly used ingredients can also harm the delicate coral reef, especially if they're applied to skin right before getting into salt water? Ingredients like Octinoxate, Oxybenzone, Benzophenones and Paraben are the main offenders that could harm the coral reef ecosystem. The good thing is, you can now find reef safe sunscreen so you can protect kids while keeping the coral reef safer.

Ingredients That Harm Coral Reefs

The ingredient Benzophenone is an ingredient that bleaches coral reef. It can also cause mutations in the reef and damage DNA. Oxybenzone commonly causes certain deforming actions to take place in the reef, and can prevent the reef from being able to reproduce properly. Octinoxate absorbs UV radiation and can re-introduce dormant viruses into algae, which can eventually bleach and kill delicate coral reef formations.
With an imminent potential for damaging the fragile coral reef, many parents today look to use sunscreens on their families that have eliminated many of these possibly harmful ingredients. The newest sunscreens are formulated to keep protecting people from the sun's UV rays while being safer when they are immersed in salt water.

Common Ways Chemicals Damage Fragile Coral Reefs

There are two common ways that introducing chemicals into the delicate underwater ecosystem in a salt water environment can damage coral reefs. The first way is through an interaction that happens between chemicals and salt water. Together they create hydrogen peroxide that can cause phytoplankton growth to be inhibited.

The other way that coral reef can be damaged is by chemicals acting to renew viruses that were once dormant in coral. This can bleach coral reefs and damage or destroy algae, which is essential to healthy coral reefs. It pays to use a safer sunscreen that is just as effective in preventing exposure to harmful rays while protecting the environment.

Happy Birthday Father Dear from Way Up There

My father could have been 66 today. He died too young and I always wish that he was still around till this day. It's been 14 years since he passed and I always imagine how he would have enjoyed being around his grandchildren. He never saw my kids because he died so suddenly, few weeks before my wedding. It was a very  hard loss because I never expected him to go so soon. One thing that I miss about my father is his passion for cooking and he also love to sing and dance. His father was a really good musician who played different instruments but my father never really learned to play. However, he had always loved singing.   Anyway, I am browsing  around online and checking all the great deal here!   Sometimes, there are  things that  reminds you of someone and  it makes you think of them.  Music instrument, food, and jokes are always  the  keys for me to remember Papa.

My Little Lady Attended Her First School Dance

Our daughter  is attending a school Spring dance tonight.  This is her first time attending  a dance in school  and she's kind of nervous but excited to  be with her friends.  She's not much of a dancer so she never really had any interest in  participating  with the past dance events in school. This time though, something has changed, she mentioned the dance to me  this morning  so I asked her if she wants to attend, she perked up lol.  
These photos were taken  on the first week of March after we got home from church.  She's my  partner in crime when it comes to  taking photos.  The boys  are always  against it  but her and I  always have fun taking photos.  She's usually the subject and I am the photographer.  
 Between my two children, my son has the long eye lashes and  my daughter always wish that she has her brother's long eyelashes and the eye color.  I told her that since she is a girl, those would be easier to fix since you can just use  eyelash extensions and you can also  use  different colors of contacts.
I was offering to put  some of these  Sweep  eyelash extension on her eyes but she didn't want to.  I think my little lady is like me, she is not much into cosmetics.
 This month's Beauty Box 5 is all about  intensifying the look of your eyes.  There's  the true metal eye shadow, cosmetic glitter, lash primer, lash helper, and lashes.  
It has everything that you need  to  level up the look of your eyes.  I told my daughter that this is something she need to learn because I never really had any interesting in applying make up when I was growing up so up until now, I am okay with just lip gloss when I go out.

Spring Forward to an Optimal Health with Natural Dynamix

Oh where do I begin?  March has been a tough month for  my family.  We lost a loved one who kept us all  feel loved but now he's gone.  To continue on with  my goal of taking family picture every month, here is for the month of March.  

Losing someone whom  you dearly loved is so hard but we hold on to the memories that he left us and that comforts us.  It's not an easy thing to go through.  Even though we know that he would go anytime soon but still hard to think that he is now on the other side, that we won't see him in this   side of life.  It is comforting to know that he is now pain free and resting in peace with his  dear wife and two  sons.  
I didn't think that it would affect me too much but it did.  It was like  going through with my father passing  over again.  He was the one who assured me that I was home when I first came here in the US so it was a tough loss for me.    I have never seen my husband wept that much.  
In times like this, even your eating habits is  affected.  I am glad that we have something  to supplement our  healthy habits in this difficult times.  Natural Dynamix sent me these  three different products to try.  

Natural Dynamix is created by a group of individuals that are into nutrition and health.  People, planet, and Profit are the three P principals of their foundation.  They believe that they can only feel good about making a profit if they are helping people in a way that doesn't hurt the planet. 
I have been wanting to do some body detoxifying so I am  thrilled to find this  Green Detox  in the box.  It is a is a powerful formulation of bioactive compounds, phytonutrients and antioxidants which stimulate and support optimal health.  This really works and I am glad that  blkoating feeling that I used to have  is now gone.  If you are looking for something to help you detoxify, I recommend this green detox from Naturla Dynamix.
Having a good night sleep is what I struggle  the most especially if I am thinking of something.  I tried  different kinds of  sleep aid and although it works, it somehow  had some side effect on me  so I was  kind of hesitant to try this one but I am glad that I did because this is so different.  First off, it is in the form of gummies so it's not hard to take it.  Then it really put me to sleep without me waking up in the middle of the night.

The Fiber DX is an adult gummy that provides 4 grams of fiber per serving. The reason I am not fond of taking supplements is the yucky taste and texture of pills but this one I don't mind at all because they're like candies. The gummies are easy to chew and swallow. What I like is that it is gluten free and made no added sugar. My husband love taking it too because it helps him regulated.

Second Year for Young Musician's Audition

Our daughter will be participating again to the Young Musician's Audition at West Liberty University this year.   Last year was her first time and she did great, she got the highest grade that the judge gave out to all the participants.  Unfortunately, they did not  get many who have the higher grade so they didn't  got to play again in a recital.  I guess the judge last year was very hard and only gave out  the highest  grade to few.  Hopefully this year, lots of  young musicians will get the high grade so they could have a recital.   West Liberty University has awesome PA system, just like this    fender passport, check it out at  I hope that she'll be  in great health condition this Friday, she caught a cold  last week and kind of clogged out this weekend.
