Aprovechando el regreso de nuestro equipo favorito de parias espaciales,  Lootcrate rinde tributo este mes a algunos de estos bravos campeones.

Security Master: An App to Shop Memorial Deals Safely

Memorial Weekend is quickly approaching, and I for one am especially excited about the upcoming sales (Uniqlo, here I go!). However, I have always been extra careful with my online data, especially when splurging online. Aside from using a debit card that I have designated just for online shopping and that has a limited amount of money, I always like make sure that I am splurging safely.
Security Master is a new free app that has just launched today, and I thought it would be interesting to share the information that I received as many of us like to hunt for bargains on our smartphones. With the recent worldwide hack, I think this is a good moment to think about Internet safety, to be honest!

table with food for mother's day gifts

Finding the perfect gift in time for Mother's Day can be a bit of a challenge, considering how many options we are bombarded with on a daily basis. To me, saying 'thank you' to mom deserves a well-thought gift that will give her a bit that "me-time" that she deserves so badly. Mothers always put the needs of others first, and I think that Mother's Day is the perfect moment to give her an excuse to treat herself. 

That is why I have created a Mother's Day Gift Guide to honor the foodie that gave you life. Enjoying the finest pleasures of life is an art that should be encouraged, as having a bit of respite in our hectic lives is not only good for the body, but also for the mind. In this guide for every budget, you'll find the perfect gifts for that Mom who enjoys food and has a refined taste. We hope you enjoy our mouth-watering selection!

With Mother's Day approaching, it is a perfect experience to gift and make some really good memories with Mom (and who knows? You might find you have a knack for cooking in the era of Seamless!)

Review: Natural Cleansing Balms by Neal's Yard and 100% Pure

Cleansing balms are rich cleansers that literally dissolve any makeup and pollution traces while also protecting the skin's moisture levels. Contrary to the myth, there is such a thing as a perfect cleansing balm for dry skin, oily skin, normal skin, and even sensitive skin. 

Because cleansing is the most important step to a beautiful and healthy skin (and, let's admit it, the buzzword in the beauty industry in the past five years), it's only natural that this category has literally exploded in the beauty aisles. Today, I'm concentrating on the cleansing balm category, as it is a wonderful option for those of us who travel a lot and don't want to be bothered by the liquid restrictions. Plus, cleansing balms are the secret for instantly dewy skin!

Today, I'm doing a candid review of the 100% Pure Blood Orange Cleansing Balm and the Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm, of which I received a sample for editorial consideration. Clean, non-toxic, and made using natural ingredients, these two formulas have stolen my little beauty heart. Care to know my opinion and my foolproof method to use a cleansing balm? Keep reading!
