Introducing three cool summer products to make summer more enjoyable and hassle free. Because summer should be awesome!
I love the beach, except for the sand. Sand is great when you’re 5. As an adult, I’m over it.
Our beach trips usually involve my family (husband, kids, dog) splashing around in the ocean and rolling around in the sand. I however, prefer to lounge on my blanket, with a book, under a beach umbrella, protecting my aging skin and occasionally yelling “You need more sunscreen.” But when they come slogging back up the beach for that sunscreen, or water, or snacks, they inevitably kick sand all over my blanket.
Problem solved with CGEAR Sand-Free Technology.
This is how it works:
This is military grade material from Australia, and we all know everything from Australia is cool. (I’m looking at you Chris Hemsworth!)
CGEAR blankets, rugs, bags and chair all let the sand drop right through leaving your beach day grit free. They are also great for around your tent or RV, if you like that sort of thing.
Depending on size, the cost runs from about $40.00 to $100.00. Caution, make sure you get it from an American distributor, you don’t want to pay shipping from Australia, unless Chris is included. Totally worth it.
Picture it. You’re at the beach and you locked your keys in the car. Time to call your bae, but your phone is dead. Not with the LUZPAC solar beach tote.
This beach bag has a lightweight, waterproof, unbreakable, detachable and interchangeable solar panel. Whether you are poolside, camping or just watching your rug rats at the park, you can charge your favorite device with the provided usb. Engineered in Germany so we know it’s wunderbar!
The charger is Apple and Android compatible, and the bag will be available online soon in five colors (including Unicorn Rainbow). The Shop isn’t yet open, but check them out online and sign up for updates!
I love eco friendly products. I love to reduce, reuse, recycle. I love sunglasses. So what could be better than wooden sunglasses? These have been around for awhile now but with more companies getting into the game, with cute names like Tmbr., Shade Tree and Grown, the range of styles and prices has expanded significantly.
From wayfarer to aviator to vintage round, wooden sunglasses are available in just about any shape or color you can think of, some brands costing as little as $20-$25.
You can go luxury too, with wooden Ray Bans costing upwards of $300.00. Wooden sunglasses are surprisingly lightweight, and many, like those made of highly sustainable bamboo, actually float! Can’t tell you how many times that would’ve been helpful.
That wraps up my current favorite summer products. Now if only I could find a bathing suit that makes me look like an SI swimsuit model.
