Essentials for Summer

Summer is a great season. The kids are home for summer break which for a work from home mom means late start mornings, late nights, and weekdays that feel like weekends. It’s also the time to be outdoors and have some fun in the sun. Here are my summer must haves you will definitely need in your beach bag.


1. Swimsuit. Summer is all about having fun and most of the time it has a lot to do with getting wet. So a swimsuit is an absolute must have during summer. There are some great deals on swimsuits right now and they are super cute too. Here are some of my choices that are both affordable and stylish. Follow the link before they are all gone and you miss out on these hot deals.

2. Sunscreen. I find myself buying sun screen year round but we expose ourselves more to the sunshine this time of year. Protect your skin from harmful rays and invest in a good sunscreen. These are some that are both highly rated and smell great.

3. Sunglasses. During summer we also have to be sure to protect our eyes from the sun. My optometrist had told me over and over how important it is to protect my eyes from harmful UV rays. I found several pairs that I just couldn’t resist that look great and will protect one of my best assets, my beautiful brown eyes. Let me make it easy for you and link some great options here.

4. Sandals. I love wearing sandals. Now that summer is here and its warmed up, this is the perfect time to bust out my sandals. I can’t help but buy a new pair every year. Sandals are definitely a summer essential.
