SMART SUN


Today I’m sharing photos from the SPF Love second anniversary celebration that took place last week at The Beach House in Old Greenwich.  My friend, Meg Geisler, founded SPF Love two years ago after being treated for melanoma.  SPF Love promotes sun safety through education, outreach and style (love Meg’s chic tips on how to safely enjoy the sun!).  If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check out her site and/or subscribe to her blog.  I was proud to be an event partner for this recent fun-filled evening and am grateful to Meg for the work she is doing to encourage early detection and prevention of skin cancers.

At the door, guests were greeted with SWAG bags and entered to win one of several fantastic prizes.

Skin care packages, healthy living cookbooks and more!  One of my favorite offerings was an SPF Love logo t-shirt.  So cute!  You can buy your own on the SPF Love website.

Finally, guests were sent home with thoughtful SWAG bags filled with Benefit cosmetic samples, coconut water, local treats, this darling sunscreen bag to protect your purse from spills:

And a “My Life in Parties” notepad inspired by SPF Love’s mission.

Pad

…Perfect for jotting down that next appointment with your dermatologist and a great reminder to safely enjoy the sun this spring break, summer and beyond!
