My Favorite Things Up Close

For summer, I tend to like bigger bags, thumb through a gazillion magazines, grill out more, snack poolside, enjoy a cold beer on our deck and I always have my tootsies ready for the sandals and flip flops — sooooo, taking all that into consideration,  I did a little shopping and picked up the following items to wrap up into one big bundle of {love} and mail to one of YOU!  Let’s take a closer look at the goods, shall we?

My Summer Faves GoodiesHere’s a closer look at the magazine and cookbook too!

summer faves magazine and cookbookFirst things first and the focal point of the pic.  A BIG yellow bag!  Love!!  I recently picked this up at Target and forced myself not to buy a second one for me!  It’s fabulous.  ($30)

Colorful Beach Towel.  Whether I’m headed to the pool or the beach, a beach towel is a must! ($8)

For the crafter, doodler or snail mailer — these colorful fine tip markers will make you SMILE!  I did buy a set of these for me.  I want to add a little colorful fun to everything now {smile}. ($5)

We enjoy a lot of time on our deck in the evenings — and I prefer to not get eaten alive.  That’s where the Cutter Skinsations Insect Repellent comes in handy.  If I’m headed to a park, it’s handy to throw in your bag too! ($5)

Ombe Scarf.  I adore the white and yellow ombre effect of this scarf.  From Charming Charlies.  I wear scarves year round.  They’re such a fun accessory!  ($15.)

For the snacker, I’ve included a couple of my faves — Twizzlers and Goldfish.  Nom Nom Nom.  I also chew gum pretty obsessively, so I’m throwing in a couple packs of my fave! ($6)

Pedicure kit, which includes my all time favorite OPI nail polish in Bubble Bath.  I just think this light pink color is fabulous for natural beauty on fingernails or toes. ($15)

I am a lotion fanatic!  After a shower or after being in the sun (or tanning bed), I always lotion up.  During the summer, this Banana Boat After Sun Lotion is moisturizing and extends the life of my tan.  Win-Win! ($5)

When your poolside, eating breakfast or lunch on the patio — a magazine is always fun to flip through.  I tend to go to garage sales and/or flea markets more often in the summer and this magazine is all about pumping me up with inspiration. ($6)

For the grillers, burgers, fries and shake lovers — you’re in for a real treat with Bobby Flay’s Burger, Fries and Shakes cookbook.  There is a greek burger recipe in here that is to die for!  So seriously good. ($20)
