This post is going to be bittersweet. I absolutely love sharing my clothing and beauty finds with you. Through this blog and Instagram, many of you have become incredibly close friends and I love sharing things on a more personal level with you all.
We have had a hard relationship with cancer in my family. My mom’s two younger brothers passed away from cancer within a year apart. Uncle Jimmy passed away seven years ago from Melanoma. Watching someone fight this disease is an unimaginable horror. Knowing that it might have been preventable can even be tougher. For a long time, I was scared of the sun. I was never a “layout all day” kind of girl, but I love being in the warm sunshine. The sunshine has always felt like a giant warm hug.
My mom was the first one to discover Cabana Life. Cabana Life is a clothing brand that creates stylish dresses, coverups and more, but the best part is that all of the clothing is UPF 50 +!! The founders have an amazing story which you can read about here. For the first time, in a long time, it felt safe to walk around in the sun. While nothing beats sunscreen, oversized hats and an umbrella on the beach, knowing that my swimsuit or coverup has sun protection, adds a layer of comfort. I can now stay in the sun with Cabana Life!
I know that you hear it all the time, especially during the summer, but take care of your skin. Skin cancer is preventable. Be on the lookout for more dresses here!
All My Love,
Uncle Jimmy, this blog post is for you. We love you and miss you every day.
