1. Apple & Bee Canvas Tote
“Fun in the Sun” means splashing at the pool, kicking around sand, and tanning oil all over the place. Save your purse for another day and bring your tote instead! With a simple spin-cycle, any outdoor craziness can easily be washed away, and your tote will stay good as new!

2. TOMS Strappy Wedges
You might get a little tipsy, but your comfy TOMS will definitely keep you grounded! Plus, shoes with colorful patterned straps look so cute, you don’t even need to worry about “what to wear!!”

3. Sunnies
Sunnies is just another word for sunglasses that know how to party… For outdoor parties, wearing your Sunnies is always a must!!

4. NCLA Colorful Nails All Day
Show the boys who the real grill-master is this weekend with some POW! on your fingertips! Distracted by those bright, pretty nails, no one will even notice you burned the chicken…
Okay, just help the grill-master. He’ll think you’re super cute flippin’ that steak with your purrty nails!

5. Intelligent Nutrients Lip Gloss
Being in the sun will crack those chaps, so be prepared! Throw away your Chapstick (aka, stick that makes your lips chap!) and try smacking your lips with Intelligent Nutrients Lip Gloss! It’s power packed with antioxidants and nutritious food ingredients! You will literally be feeding nutrients to your lips…

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!!

Trippin’ In Style

Coachella may have kicked off the summer festival frenzy, but we still have a forest full of mushrooms to pick and an entire season left to tribal dance. Before you go frolicking through the forest, here is some festival footwear advice to help you get your two-step on with Mr. Mojo Risin over there!!

Festival Go-To Shoe #1: The Strappy Sandal
Strappy sandals are my ultimate go-to shoe for summer music festivals, because they are the closest thing to being barefoot! These gladiator style shoes are very jam-dance friendly and also give off that gypsy-nomad look so you will fit right in! Pair with a flowy maxi skirt and a braided hair-do!

Festival Sandals
Festival Go-To Shoe #2: The Basic Boot

If you prefer to be in the middle of the crowd, jumping around with the rest of the trippin’ trolls, you should probably opt for boots… They will protect your dancing toes from getting stomped on and keep your feet clean… or less of a sweaty mess! Keep in mind, showing a little skin is always trendy at festivals… So, show off those stems and pair your boots with cutoffs or a patterned mini dress to get that edgy, rocker look!
