Happy Saturday. We are in RI for a very quick trip to catch up with family and get in some beach time. The water is very warm, alarmingly so for early July if I’m being honest. Vermont has been non-stop rain so some sunshine is very welcome. Speaking of sun, this SPF 40 sun serum from Venus Williams brand Eleven is really good. I only applied it once and was in the sun for a very long time yesterday, the only place I didn’t get burned was where I applied the sun serum. Needless to say I’ll be using it all over next time. Wishing you all a great weekend.
