Ultimate Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E - The Best Anti-Wrinkle Serum for Your Face!

All it takes is a few drops of Aurora Cure Ultimate Vitamin C Serum to experience 'the glow;' your skin will immediately appear more radiant, youthful, and energized! 

With continued use you'll experience the long-term anti-wrinkle, anti-aging benefits of Vitamin C serum: 
  • Advanced Formula with Hyaluronic and Vitamin E - These active ingredients add intense moisturizing and even greater antioxidant benefits. Hyaluronic acid adds plumpness and firmness to skin because it has a greater capacity to hold moisture than any polymer. Vitamin E works to neutralize free radicals that damage cells and contribute to skin aging. 
  • Collagen Boost - Vitamin C provides a skin-rejuvenating effect by improving collagen synthesis in the skin that slows down with aging. Collagen is a structural support protein that is essential for firm, youthful skin. As the synthesis of new collagen slows down, topical vitamin C is one of the most effective ways to boost collagen synthesis. 
  • Prevent and Repair Sun Damage - The damage from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays is responsible for the vast majority of visible aging (wrinkles, uneven tone). Sun damage results in free radicals; harmful molecules that damage cells. Vitamin C serum contains powerful antioxidants that combat free radicals, revising wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Aurora Cure's 20% formula is safe for all skin types, never tested on animals, and is paraben-free, oil-free, and contains no dyes, fragrances or fillers. Our customers enjoy reduced wrinkles, even skin tone, and improvement of age spots.

As I get older, I find myself looking for new age defying serums so I was happy to get this Ultimate Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E.  I like that it has a dropper applicator top to easy apply to my face and there is no mess or waste of the product.  It is nice that I only need a few drops and it leaves my skin feeling moisturized and not greasy.  I really like the benefits that include preventing and repairing skin damage and restoration of skin texture, stimulating collagen and helps reduce fine lines on my face and neck.

Delicious, nutritious and convenient LALA Yogurt Smoothies are the perfect product to fuel your busy, active lifestyle.

With my busy on the go lifestyle, it is not always easy to eat healthy, that's why I was so excited to try these 3 LALA Yogurt Smoothies flavors, Tropical Mango, Wild Strawberry and Pina Colada!

I did take a few sips of each one and let my family try them as well. We had a taste testing party and although we all chose our favorites, we enjoyed all 3 flavors. The little girls loved the wild strawberry the best, the tropical mango came away as my favorite and the 20 somethings chose the pina colada as their favorite.

I love that these LALA Yogurt Smoothies have a lot of protein and are made with real fruit which really makes the taste exceptional! LALA Yogurt Smoothies are the the perfect way to start the day, in between school and practices and a great portable drink on a bike ride, walking the dog, running in the park and on the commute to work. I really like that I don't have to stop counting my steps to drink my LALA Yogurt Smoothie and I never miss a beat or sacrifice taste for convenience!

LALA Yogurt Smoothies, made with real fruit, help me make small changes to improve my health and happiness by giving the nutrition, protein, calcium and Vitamins A & D needed to power through my day.

Plus, because I drink LALA Yogurt Smoothies, I don't have to slow down or take a time-out to enjoy it like I have to do with traditional cup yogurt.

If you are not willing to trade convenience for taste and what you eat has to taste good. LALA Yogurt Smoothies are perfect to meet the nutritional needs of your "on the go" group, anytime.

Planning a Photography Excursion "Olympus Takes You There"

Where would you go with your free plane ticket to anywhere in the US? #OlympusTakesYouThere #ad  OLYMPUS

I would fly from Ohio to Silver Peak Nevada where my Mom lives and spend time hiking in the mountains on a photography excursion with her.

When planning a photography excursion, vacation or casual travel, I like to choose naturally beautiful destinations.  I prepare by choosing picturesque places that I want to see in person and photograph. 

I also think it's a great idea to learn tips and techniques from an online, weekend or weeklong photography workshop. This can really inspire you to try new techniques and get you to step out of the box and exploreI get inspired by simple natural events like the sunrise, fog lifting in the early morning and even cows grazing in an open field.  

I prefer to travel on far away adventures but when time or finances don't allow, I am just as happy to go on a photo adventure near home. 

I make sure to keep these things in mind before I travel:

  •  Equipment. camera, lenses, tripod, lighting, batteries/chargers, rain gear and several memory cards.
  •  Natural lighting. I like to start early to beat the crowds if I am going somewhere touristy so I can get where I need to be for the best shot and make use of  the golden hours one hour after sunrise or one hour before sunset. 
  • The Rule of ThirdsThe rule of thirds is very important in keeping photography interesting and eye catching, by dividing an image using two horizontal lines and two vertical lines. I love to use lines to take the eye deep into my shot. Keep in mind, wide aperture (the variable opening by which light enters a camera) creates shallow depth of field and blurred backgrounds, while closed aperture lengthens depth of field and keeps backgrounds in focus.

Coffee is my daily indulgence whether it is hot in my favorite mug, iced in a giant shaker bottle or filled to the rim in my travel cup, I love my coffee! I was excited to try this giant box of 40 k-cups from Brooklyn Bean Roastery Breakfast Blend light roast.  I really enjoy this one on lazy early morning days off when I am waking up with the sun and listening to the birds while the rest of my family is still fast asleep. It is a nice way to wake up in the morning and it has a fantastic flavor. I have made it hot in a mug just as it is and its very good just like that. I have also made a flavored iced coffee with it and its super tasty! I love that this blend comes in k-cups that fit my Keurig 2.0 so I can make a quick cup and be on my way! I like this breakfast blend with its rich texture yet light sweet taste and flavors for a nice balanced cup of coffee.
