Launch of the TreehouseGO App + Treehouse Big Day Out 2 Promo Code!

TreehouseGO App launch

 

 

Treehouse has literally been playing on repeat in my home since my son was born. Even when he was an infant, he was always drawn to the songs and images playing on Treehouse.

My son is a huge fan of Bubble Guppies and Mike the Knight, so before we leave for a trip I always head over to iTunes to download some of the latest shows.

Treehouse has just launched an app called TreehouseGO where you can view live shows, save favourite shows, and bring Treehouse virtually wherever you travel with your tablet or phone.

The TreehouseGO app will help me with those long flights and road trips! The TreehouseGO App is now live and downloadable at the Apple app store or Google Play.

Now I can use the handy download-to-go option called My Backpack to download episodes of Bubble Guppies, and we can then view the shows my son loves without an internet connection.

TreehouseGO is the only network app to offer this feature! The Live Stream icon also lets you watch Treehouse live as it airs on television.

TreehouseGO is free for anyone to download. If you are not a Treehouse subscriber, you will be able to explore the app and view a limited sampling of popular Treehouse content. The app is designed for kids aged 2 to 6, and it’s easy for kids to navigate

The app will be continually updated with current Treehouse series such as Dora and Friends, Little Charmers, Octonauts, Toopy & Binoo, Bubble Guppies and Mike the Knight.

Bold Patterned Shorts for Summer

Sparkleshinylove Patterned summer shorts

 

 

I’m a big fan of jean shorts in the summer, but recently I’ve really liked wearing dressy shorts for a night out. Some shorts are just as flirty and cute as a skirt would be. There are some really great pattered shorts out there right now that are a lot more fun then casual cut-offs. These patterned shorts can be completely dressed down with sandals or flats. Heels or a wedge make them stand out to make them a great dinner and drinks outfit.

These patterned shorts I’m wearing are from H&M. I wish there was a cute blazer to match!

I kept things neutral with white on top, but it would be really fun to mix a clashing print with a pair of patterned shorts as well. My favourite way to “clash” patterns right now is a striped shirt on top with a floral print on the bottom!

Here are a few more of my favourite patterned shorts below!

New Summer Fragrances From Lampe Berger – Exotic Cocktail & Daring Pepper

Lampe Berger Summer Scents Exotic Daring Pepper and Exotic Cocktail
 

 

Summer calls for lighter scents in my home, and the new Lampe Berger scents are a prefect way to freshen things up!

Lampe Berger launches new fragrances throughout the year which seem to fit perfectly with the changing seasons, and these latest scents are no different.

 

 

Lampe Berger Summer Scents Exotic Daring Pepper and Exotic Cocktail

 

 

To be honest, the scent Daring Pepper doesn’t have the name of a scent I would normally chose. I had no idea what this one was going to smell like, but it was surprisingly good!

 

 

Lampe Berger Daring pepper

 

 

It has an undertone of leather and spices, but it also smells of raspberry and vanilla. Such a crazy combination, but it’s so good! It’s a little masculine and fruity all at the same time.

Exotic Cocktail is the definition of summer. Flavours of rum, coconut, roasted coffee and vanilla. It smells like a tropical vacation, or a fruity cocktail. This is my new favourite scent.

 

 

Lampe Berger Exotic Cocktail
 

 

I’m loving both of these fresh new scents in my home, especially on rainy days when I just want to think of hot summer days when I’m stuck inside!

Review of Vichy’s Idéal Soleil Invisible Mist SPF50

Review of Vichy's Idéal Soleil Invisible Mist SPF50

 

 

I am not joking around this summer when it comes to the sun because I have had a few questionable moles pop up, and my upcoming dermatologist appointment has me a little uneasy! I can’t believe how often I would leave the house without sunscreen on over the last few years. I have always avoided sunscreen for the most part. I rarely burn and tan easily, so I just didn’t put much thought into sunscreen. I love having a tan, but I would often take it a little far, and now I am scaling back my time in the sun, and I am making sure my sunscreen is up to snuff.

One thing I had never used before was spray on sunscreen. I really didn’t use a lot of sunscreen at all, so it never occurred to me to even look into this form of sunscreen.

I have been using Vichy’s Idéal Soleil Invisible Mist SPF50, and it’s a keeper!

I have been rather impressed with some of the Vichy products I have used lately, and this Vichy product did not disappoint either.

 

 

Vichy Review

 

 

It dries instantly on your skin. So quickly, I was a little worried I didn’t have enough on, or that it wouldn’t protect my skin. I am so used to seeing a white coloured cream lathered all over my skin, so spraying something on that had such a quick drying time had me skeptical.

The instructions said to shake the bottle well, and spread it in circular motion. It’s suggested you spray 3 seconds on each arm, 4 seconds on the front of your body, 4 seconds on the back of your body, and 7 seconds on each leg. Having a guide to how long I should spray on the sunscreen was essential! I had no idea how long to spray – thank goodness for the instructions from Vichy!

This sunscreen contains the #1 filter recommended by dermatologists, which is Mexoryl SX. It’s a synthetic sunscreen agent which will not degrade during time in the sun as quickly as other sunscreen agents. The UVA protection it provides can give you some other beauty perks such as increased luminosity, fewer wrinkles, less age spots, and a better skin quality. It makes sense that sunscreen is so important – the sun can do so much aging and damage to your skin!

 

 

Vichy Review

 

 

I’ve been using this sunscreen daily because it’s just so easy to pop into my purse! I can spray it on anytime, and because it dries so quickly, it is very easy to use on the go. My biggest issue was not wanting to get all goopy when applying sunscreen in the middle of the day, or when I am at the beach I wouldn’t want to get sand all over me as I tried to apply sunscreen.

With Vichy’s Idéal Soleil Invisible Mist SPF50 I can just spray and move on with my day. It’s also suitable for sensitive skin which is a huge bonus for anyone who breaks out with other sunscreen formulas.

I’m happy to report that I did not burn when using this sunscreen, which is pretty impressive because I used it for a day at the beach as well. Every few hours I re-applied, and kept going on with my day. It hydrated my skin as well which I didn’t expect from a spray. It did not transfer to my clothing (and I wore white more than a few times), most likely due to the fact that it dried so quickly when I applied it.
