Summer Must-Haves

Summer Must-Haves
Is everyone having a great weekend?  Shane and I went to the casinos yesterday to celebrate his birthday.  Since it was his birthday, he picked whatever he wanted to do, which of course was to go to the Corvettes, Camaros & Crawfish Festival at one of the casinos.  The weather was beautiful.  It was outdoors, and we walked around admiring the cars (and wishing I wouldn't have sold my Camaro last year.)  We ate way too much food and gambled just a little.  We also had to hit the outlet malls across the street while we were there.  They are nothing like the outlet malls in other cities, but it was better than nothing.  I am still picketing for a Coach, BCBG and J.Crew.  Who's with me?!  We even won just a little too.  Free entertainment for the weekend - winning. 
With the gorgeous weather we have had this weekend, I cannot stop thinking about summer.  I realize it is barely spring, but in Memphis, it usually goes from cold to hot, so you have to be prepared.  We are going to the lake next weekend with family, and then we plan on going to the beach a couple times this summer.  Today I rounded up my list of summer must-haves.  Some of these items I own, and some I am just lusting after.  I have these headphones and love them!  They're collapsible, have a microphone and a remote, and work with Apple products also.  After all, you can't go to the beach without having your favorite tunes while you're there!  This may not be an item for the beach, but after lying out and working on your tan all day, you will definitely want to get fixed up for dinner when out of town, and this mascara is my absolute new favorite.  I have fairly thick and long eyelashes anyways, so I have never tried anything special for them, but this mascara is definitely worth it.  It makes them look even thicker and longer.  This tiny MicroPedi Nano will be your new best friend.  I have it, and absolutely love how great it works and how small and compact it is.  It is perfect to use to get your feet pedicure ready, and it's only $25!  I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things to do in the summer is to read a good book.  Whether I'm at the pool, the beach or just lying out on my screened-in patio, I love reading on my Kindle.  I just recently finished the book Eightysixed, and it is a must read.  It literally had me dying to keep reading to see what happened next.  It is about a 20-something woman trying to navigate her way through life and Chicago while trying to find love and also while becoming quite the foodie.  It was one of those great books that had a little bit of everything for me, and I completely related to it. 

On my summer wish list that I don't have but need is this amazing coverup.  I have been drooling over LemLem coverups for years now, and I think it's time to pull the trigger.  This radio is much too cute to pass up, and I'm not going to lie, I just ordered these sandals because I fell in love with them so much after making this collage.  = )    


  1. I absolutely love that bikini!

  2. You're just making me want to go to the beach! I love the towel, phone case, and radio! Too cute!
