Since I finished that book I've started 4 businesses. An online marketing system is the perfect way to get started online, because you get to build your list and get educated at the same time. A skilled SEO campaigner knows to ease out a complex site and re-structure it to suit real users as well as search engines.

In regards to present day fashion, the fitness world has created a craze of certain items such as gym tank tops and yoga pants that are worn as casual wear by many people on a daily basis, whether they attend a gym or not.

This is awesome! How long does the crystal last? Is it strong enough to use/carry around/wear/hang? oXo!!

My grocery carries sea salt, kosher salt and pickling salt. Would either of these be the proper salt?

If your boots are uncomfortable, it's because they don't fit your feet. The methods used in the DYI, and ruing the support of the boots. Part of the reason we like distressed boots, is because each mark is a reminder of some activity. We like stuff with a history. If you like that distressed look, put your boots on (and your big girl panties) and live your life with them on. Don't fake it.

Or you could find some distressed ones for less money at a thrift shop :)

Do not waste your money on this recipe, our Biotechnology class used it to test the effectiveness of Natural sanitizer compared to chemical and this one didn't work at all. It was an oily mess and a waste of $50

How long will this last. Does it "go bad" after a certain period of time?

Post image for All Natural SPF Sun Oil

I’m always on the hunt for natural alternatives to everyday beauty products. As the temperatures start to warm up, the only thing on my mind is long days spent in the sunshine. Read more »

Thanks for sharing this. I tried some of these oils and had good results for off peak times of the day (mornings and late afternoons) in Maui. My family tried them afterwards and we all had success despite being fair-skinned. We also wear hats and generally avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day or use zinc oxide based block those times of the day. Many locals avoid sunblock here, many use wheat germ oil.
Mara -Feb 01, 2015, 1:53AM
Hey, just so you guys know, zinc oxide is a very finicky ingredient and more often than not de-stabilizes in recipes that are not finely tuned and scientifically tested many times. Adding zinc oxide DOES NOT automatically make something SPF 20 or over. Please know that it is very important to understand the science of sunscreen products before telling people they can go and make their own sunscreen who will probably use it on their children. Also, there is no guarantee that these oils will protect you from harmful UV and UVB rays and you should not assume that just because you have a mixture of skin protecting oils that you can be in the sun for hours on end. The best natural protecting from harmful rays is a gradual tan and taking continuous breaks in the shade throughout the time spent outside. The ancient Greeks did use olive oil AFTER sun exposure to prevent mild burning and dry skin, so there's that...
