WHO IS READY FOR SUMMER?? We sure are! We are here for the long nights, warm days, sandy buns and tan lines. To ensure you are ready for all the upcoming sunshine and outdoor fun, we have created the ultimate list of MUST HAVE summer essentials for 2019.
Eco Friendly Sun Protection
We love our summer glow, however, not at the expense of damaging our skin! That’s why we ALWAYS use sun protection when we are going out and about! One of our favorite eco-friendly, sun/skin brands is Coola. Not only does is smell amazing, but Coola is 70% organic, made with non-GMO ingredients, and cruelty free. All of their products are infused with powerful antioxidants too! We are loving the mineral sunscreen and liplux chapstick. Check out Coola’s entire line, here.
Beach Bag That Holds It All
What’s better than a bag that can hold it all? A bag that gives back. Plum and Sparrow products are sustainably made and are a supporter of the Fair Trade Federation, meaning 10% of each purchase goes back to the African weavers and their families - providing them with school supplies, healthcare and the funding and building of the community weaving centers. Find us with our Palm Leaf Shopper, which perfectly fits all of our summer essentials, with some extra room! Shop Plum and Sparrow’s collection, here.
Beach Babe Sunglasses
The harsh summer rays of the sun can cause more than a painful sunburn, it can also damage your eyesight if you are not protecting your eyes with a sufficient amount of shade.Which is why we are always wearing a pair of I-Sea sunnies. Created from a love for the ocean and a passion for eyewear, I-SEA represents the Southern California lifestyle with mens and women frames that easily take you from the beach to the city. From fashion glasses, to polarized lenses, I-Sea has it all! Shop their shades, here.
Suns out, Buns Out - Swimwear
No beach day is complete without a swimsuit!! We are all about supporting women owned businesses , which is one of many reasons why we LOVE Indigo Swimwear! Indigo’s products are made with ECONYL® yarn and 100% regenerated nylon. The yarn that makes up all the pieces come from old fishing nets and ocean waste! Even Indigo’s packaging, from drawstring bags, hangtags and thank you cards, everything is eco-friendly. A percent of each piece manufactured goes to beach clean ups in Bali through the R.O.L.E Foundation's 'Zero Waste to Oceans' initiative, and a percent of each piece sold goes to local beach clean ups in California through the Surfrider Foundation! So not only are you giving back on a variety of levels, but you can look fabulous doing it! Their suits are SO CUTE and comfy, offered in a variety of sizes and styles. Browse their swimwear here!
Sit back, Relax and Take a Sip
Nothing beats a cold drink on a warm summer day. Especially one that can calm your nerves after dealing with crowded roads and beach parking. Our go to drink this summer is M Kombucha. This CBD kombucha, not only has a light and welcoming tase, not like the standard kombucha, and is infused with 15mg of Hemp extract. Offered in three amazing flavors, this California beverage is our #1 choice. M Kombucha is offered in a variety of locations across the coast. Find a M Kombucha carrier near you right here!
