It’s been a while… but I’m back with the newest and latest of things I like, and use, and recommend!

Have you heard of this company and its great line of sun protection clothing?
I have become very, very aware of the sun and the damage it’s doing (and has done) to my skin. In addition to wearing sun screen every day of the year on my face and hands, I have started to buy UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) clothing for outdoors. Yes, it’s tricky to wear long sleeves (arms are one my “problem areas”) in hot, humid weather. But these fabrics are so lightweight that it helps. And they wash, and dry, quickly and easily.

I am especially careful to always wear a “rash guard” when I swim. I do my laps, in full sun, either late morning or at lunch time and the sun is hot and bright. My gorgeous cherry/magenta rash guard with long sleeves really gives me protection: I put it on right as I head toward the pool, then peel it off as soon as I get out.

Here’s a selection from their catalog:

I had mentioned Coolibar in my post on
Travel Essentials: What to Wear

and then showed you one of their wraps I was wearing while walking in Arles:


Oh Delana, that was a fun day: can we do it again???

This is the beach hoodie: but what I really like is the cutout for your thumb, so most of your hand is covered!



Hand in Hand Soap


I bought some bars in (of course) lavender and here it is in my bathroom. I can truly say this is good soap. It smells wonderful; it sudses (yes, that’s the verb!) easily; it rinses cleanly.

This is just a small part of their mission and what and how they do it all.
