My Summer Essentials!

Even though the blog is on a hiatus for the summer, and we are super busy ALL DAY LONG, I wanted to share with you some of the things that I have been using every day.  It's been pretty fun so far, with lots of swimming, and we are excited to head on our next trip to California!

The first on my list is for me...obviously.  HA! I realized after a couple of swim meets, that I needed waterproof flip flops.  I love my rainbows, but they are leather.  I got some reefs (again) and I love them...


I have also had my eye on these, but haven't pulled the trigger yet.  I pink sparkly heart love Amazon Prime.

Sunscreen has been tricky for the kids.  I bought goddess garden spray, and while it has been effective, it is a pain in the ass to get on them.  It goes on very white, and takes a long time to absorb.  I do love this one for me, as I can spray my back (and hard to reach areas) effectively.  They make a kids one that I will be trying soon...

This is the second summer I have used Coola on my face, and I really like it.  It adds just a bit of tint, and gives me the protection I like.

Also LOVE the lip balm.  It actually does have good color!

Pool toys:  My son has been going nuts for these.  I have had to take them from other kids a bunch, so be sure to sharpie those bad boys!

Now, let's go there.  Bathing suits.  Sigh. BUT Amazon has some great ones at every price point. This first one is super cute and very inexpensive!

I saw this one at the pool the other day, and stalked the woman until I found it.  SO cute on.


Last but not least, my Costco membership. I have been buying a ton of great organic, and healthy snacks.  They do have them on Amazon too, but Costco is my fave.

We will be starting our trip to CA on the 11th, but I wanted to remind you of Prime Day.  I will be getting some information from Amazon shortly, and I will keep you posted.  Last prime day, they had a lot of great deals, including Instant Pot.  If you don't have Prime, you can always start a 30 free trial!
