All Sun Bum products are 104 Reef Act Compliant (Octinoxate & Oxybenzone Free to prevent coral bleaching), broad-spectrum natural sunscreens with UVA/UVB protection. BUY THIS!

This deal has us all blown away. The Series 8 smartwatch is a health monitor like never before.

There's even crash and fall detection that can automatically connect you with emergency services, along with Emergency SOS options that provide urgent assistance with the press of a button.

I own this. I love This. I couldn't garden without it. This adjustable back brace with lumbar support is the third of its kind I've owned and by far the best. I have a terrible back, and regularly get epidural shots. In between shots, and especially on days I'll be gardening, exercising or just cleaning the house, I put this brace on first knowing I will not have the pain during and after I would without it. If you too suffer from back strains, I cannot recommend this brace enough.

I am a huge fan of Skechers slip-on walking shoes. The shoes are stylish, come in loads of colors, easy to slip on when running out the door and if I find myself needing to run errands, or standing for hours, these shoes never leave my feet tired and aching. If you've never tried these shoes, I highly recommend giving them a try. Your feet will thank you!
