The Best Sunscreens In 2019?


What are your favorite sunscreens?

I like to use this tinted sunscreen from La Roche Posay- Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light SPF 50 Face Sunscreen. It’s ultra-light, absorbs fast, leaves a matte finish and it’s paraben & phthalate-free.

If you’re wondering how to choose a sunscreen – check the article that I wrote last year. I took an appointment with a pharmacist who advised what I should be looking for. There are many different sunscreens on the market and sometimes it may be confusing to choose the exact one that you need.

In this article, put together a short list of sunscreens that we use and some I would like to try. On which criteria do you choose a sunscreen?

Weekend Getaway in The Royal Savoy Hotel Lausanne


A few weeks ago we decided to spend a long weekend in the Royal Savoy Hotel Lausanne located in a stunning historic building in a vibrant district of Ouchy. It was built in 1909 and used to house exiled Spanish aristocrats as well as the young King of Thailand.

When I compare the Hotel to other five-star establishments in Switzerland that we visited, the Royal Savoy Hotel Lausanne comes as one of those on the top. What makes a real five-star hotel is an attention to detail and the people. The hotel was impeccably clean, with beautiful decor exuding history and tradition with a modern twist. And I liked the staff, who was gracious, hospitable, and kind without being cold or detached. We felt welcomed and comfortable.

Can Community Trade Shea Butter Empower Women?


This year The Body Shop celebrates 25 years of Community Trade partnership with Tungteiya Women’s Association which covers its Shea butter needs. Over the years, the Association grew from 50 to more than 600 women from 11 communities near Tamale, Northern part of Ghana.

In addition to fair and regular wage, The Body Shop pays into a Premium fund which is managed by the women through Northern Ghana Community Action Fund (NOGCAF). The premium is transparently and democratically invested in community projects (schools, access to health centers and clean water, sanitation, a building to stare shea nuts, etc.). It has positively impacted the lives of 49,000 people.
