My Summer Favorite Things is full of practical items. Items that make a summer day perfect! I like color, good smells, something cool to drink and something mindless to read. I’m a simple girl.

Beach Towel | Mrs. Meyer’s Soap | Colorful Straws | Magazines | Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm | Colgate Wisps | World Market Drink Cup| Lipton Tea | Escential Oils Lotion and Soap in Rain | Razors | Burt’s Bees Hand Cream | Avon Solutions  Ageless Results Face Cream | Avon Shine Attract Lip Stick | Tressemme’ Hair Rejuvenationg Mud Masque | $20 Target Gift Card

Easy Summer Entertainment – I love my magazines! I especially love the ones I can sit outside with and not worry about getting suntan cream on. These are full of fun articles on DIY, Decorating, Recipes and more.

Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap – I love ALL Mrs. Meyer’s products.  They smell SO good, but this geranium scent is my favorite.  Fresh and simple, just like Summer should be.

Burt’s Bees – Love me some Burt’s Bee’s Replenishing Lip Balm. Its creamy and keeps my lips from drying out in the sun. I use their Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme at night to moisturize my hands from all the outdoor summer activities. I use both of these year round.

TRESemm’e Rejuvenating Mud Hair Mask – With all the swimming I do, this hair mask keeps my curly locks from drying out.

Avon – This creamy spf Face Cream is perfect for wearing all day. It’s not greasy and it says it’s got Ageless Results! The lip stick is someone transparent with just enough color. It’s also creamy and moisturizing.

Lipton Tea & Honey To Go Packets – This is the perfect drink enhancer to take along.  I keep the little packets in my purse and can just add it to any bottled water. Pineapple Mango is my fav.

World Market Drink Cup – I couldn’t not buy this. The colors just screamed at me to pick it up! I love having a large drink cup to take along anywhere.

Colorful Straws – They make every drink better, especially if you’re just drinking water…..add a slice of lemon or lime and you’ve got yourself a fun drink.

Razors – These Schick Quattro razors don’t have that cheap feel.  Besides their cute.

Beach Towel – This towel is big enough to sit on, but it’s not too bulky to carry it in a tote.

Colgate Wisps– Sometimes gum doesn’t cut it. These little toothbrushes are perfect to store in your purse for a quick freshin.

Escential Oils – I buy my lotion from a local boutique here in Portland.  It’s the kind of place you can have whatever scent you want added. I love the RAIN scent. Their glycerin Rain scented soap is the perfect compliment.  You’ll fall in love with this scent.

 $20 Target Gift Card – Who doesn’t love shopping at Target?!
