Hot Fun in the Summer Time...

I love to get outside. Feel the sun against my face, hit the pool for a few laps, and then relax and enjoy a good magazine. It's where I recharge my batteries. I mean, eating, sleeping, pooping, the play mat...it can be exhausting! And don't even get me started on tummy time. I mean, would YOU want to sit there with your face in the floor trying to push yourself up? I don't think so.


The jury's still out on whether I'll be a redhead like my mom, but it's pretty much a given that I've got fair skin. Lather me in a good SPF and I'm sure to be your beach buddy. I haven't been to the beach yet but I'm sure I'll be darling with my toes in the sand. 


There's nothing like a little pool-side girl talk with a good magazine to pass the day! 




I wanted to share some of my summer essentials and a few steals, and when you're ready, I've got an extra float with your name on it.  


First of all, I love a great towel. Potterybarn has fun, soft, big towels that are perfect for the pool or the beach. They are all on sale and you can get them monogrammed. That monogram thing is perfect for me because I am NOT sharing my towel with my stinky brother! 


A good beach bag is a must since my mom now has to carry multiple towels, snacks, magazines, diapers, bottles...oh gosh, I can't even think of all the things she needs to pack. She probably needs a massage, or pedicure, or a margarita or something. 

Back to the beach bag...Y'all aren't even going to believe it when I tell you that Restoration Hardware has the perfect tote bag on sale for $24 right now. Yeah, you heard me right. $24 and $6 if you want to add a monogram. Did I mention free shipping? You're welcome. 


I'm not wearing jewelry just yet but it's never to early to start a collection. I think this anchor necklace would be perfect. My Zsa Zsa is a breast cancer survivor and when she was battling her cancer she always played the song, "The Anchor Holds." So anchors are special to her and special to my mom because it reminds her of that. 


And finally, everyone needs a good magazine top pass the time. These are two of my favorites.



Happy sunning! Come join me anytime :) Though I must warn you, my mom thinks she's the paparazzi. But what can I say...

 When you've got it you've got it.
