Summer dance for littles and adults

Today we are sharing an aweosme dance studio for children that also offers some adult classes!

Dance Arts Theater of Utah is a classical ballet studio in the heart of central Salt Lake City. DATU offers Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, and Hip Hop in both Pre-Ballet and Pre-Professional programs. Their warm and welcoming atmosphere propels dancers of all ages and levels to their fullest potential.

We are always looking for new things for our kids to learn and as adults we should have some fun hobbies as well.  Doesn’t getting together with friends to take some dance classes sound so fun? And how sweet is it that they have classes starting with walking babies?  Adorable!

All of our followers who register for summer classes during the month of April will receive a $15 credit plus DATU Swag.  Just mention SALT SKY when you sign up.

Coupon: SALT SKY blogger network deal
Book ride by calling: 801-448-6126

This past weekend we had the best time horse back riding in the foothills overlooking the beautiful city of Salt Lake.

Our friends at Utah Trail Rides were so much fun and since some of us are pretty rusty at the sport, they were very patient and helpful.

Just imagine riding out of a barn full of beautiful horses, past an apple orchard, through a street lined with historic buildings, and onto a path just below Bonneville Shoreline Trail. You can see the whole city and the vista is spectacular.

Utah Trail Rides is owned by a very handsome cowboy from Arizona that now calls Utah home. The business has grown so much in the past two years that they are booked around the clock. So much so that they are expanding and buying more horses just to keep up with the demand. And we love that!

We are so excited to go back! Next time we will take our husbands. Just picture a romantic couple ride, can’t wait.

But book your appointment ahead of time because they fill up fast.

Utah Trail

This is definitely in the list of top ten things to do in Utah this season.

Summer Makeup with a Glow

Make up in the mail is like Christmas so when Sephora sent us some Lancome samples to try out, we were pretty excited.

The make up in this line was pretty light and comfortable to wear.  Our favorite one to try was the Click & Glow that highlights your face.  A 2017 summer trend is a glowing face and the Click & Glow makes skin shimmer like sun kissed skin.

Get the look:

  1. Teinte Idole Ultra Wear Foundation-apply with a brush or sponge evenly on moisturized face.  Apply lightly for a natural look.
  2. Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer– softly add to dark circles under eyes brushing out toward your cheekbones for a natural blend.
  3. Click & Glow– dab little dots over your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose and dab with your finger to blend.
  4. Metallic lip gloss– finish with this shimmery nude gloss for a summer beach look.

Try it out and tell us what you think!  #lancome #TIUCamo #DontGlowItAlone

These products were sent to us complimentary by Influencer & Sephora.

7 Hair & Skin benefits of Argan Oil

We have a fun guest post today by Beth Martel.  Here’s some fun info she’s shared with us about Argan Oil.  Tell us what you think!  Have you tried it?  Do you agree?  

Are you tired of purchasing endless products with the hope that they might bring your silky hair and youthful skin back? After reading this article, you will realize what you have been missing out on for so many years.
Do you ever wonder if there could be just one potion for all your problems? If yes, argan oil is the one. It is also known as liquid gold by many because of its infinite benefits and golden color. It is used as an organic cosmetic product by famous makeup artists around the world.
Here are the few out of many benefits of argan oil for hair and skin:

Friendly to All Skin Types:
You do not have to worry about your skin type while using argan oil. It benefits the dry skin by reducing dryness and itching, and keeps it hydrated at all time.
Argan oil is non-greasy yet moisturizing enough to keep skin hydrated. Therefore, it is also best for those with oily skin. As it is an organic product, it has zero side effects, making it equally best for sensitive skin too.

Treats and Prevents Acne:
Excessive oil is the major cause of acne. Argan oil controls the natural production of oil,  It is high in linoleic acid content that helps to condense inflammation and remove the dead skin cells.

Prevents Aging:
Argan oil consists of anti-oxidants that prevent oxidative damage from pollution and UV rays. Fatty acids present in the oil such as Linoleic acid help to improve firmness and elasticity of the skin.

Treats Nails, Hands and Feet:
Argan oil has clear softening properties which benefit wrinkled and hard skin on hands and feet. It also heals brittle nails. You can make it a permanent part of your mani-pedi routine.
Prevents Flaky and Dry Lips:

Argan oil also works as the best balm for sore and cracked lips, especially during winters. You can also make a lip exfoliator using argan oil and a teaspoon of brown sugar.  Apply it before going to sleep every night. This quick remedy will keep your lips soft and supple.

Treats Dry and Damaged Hair:
Argan oil also works as a hair softener and shiner and is used by many hair stylists. It also treats frizzy hair and split ends.  Applying a few drop through your fingertips in the roots of your hair can help it grow stronger and more voluminous.

Speeds Up Healing of Wounds and Burns:

Argan oil consists of anti-oxidants that reduce inflammation and help in healing wounds, dry patches and burns. It speeds up the healing process and immediately soothes the pain.
