1. Celebrating National Sunglasses Day with Maui Jim

    It’s National Sunglasses Day and there’s no better to celebrate than to host a pool party with my go-to shades for the summer in tow! I am loving my KEANAE Olive Tortoise Glasses by Maui Jim. They are perfect for everyday wear, working out {they are so light weight!}, and the tortoise goes with absolutely everything. They also come polarized to block out UVA and UVB rays {and come in prescription}!

    For today’s celebration, I invited some friends over for a little fun in the sun on my patio. Ice cold champagne, festive stemless champagne flutes, all served on a fab blue tray! For drinks, I am all about champagne cocktails on a hot day and I have to say this Beach Cocktails Book has been my favorite inspiration for Summer beverages and snacks!

    In honor of Sunglass Day treat yourself to a pair of Maui Jims to complete your beach bag of summer essentials! All of their products are made here in the U.S. and can be purchased online at MauiJim.com, or you can see your closest retailer {like Sunglass Hut!}… check out the options on their site!

    What’s in my beach bag? First of all I am in love with straw bags and pom poms, so this Neon Tassle Tote is a little bit of both {and HUGE} making it the perfect carry-all for the beach! Then I am loving pops of color – like my geometric tribal Havaianas and Smith & Cult Shining Lip Lacquer. My KEANAE Olive Tortoise Glasses are the last but not least! Hope you also enjoy a fab day in the sun soaking up that Vitamin D!

  4. Juliska Al Fresco Collection & Summer Time Recipes

    Summer is finally here which means it’s time for outdoor entertaining! Our family loves eating out by the pool so I was so excited that Juliska’s Al Fresco Dinnerware Collection is equally as elegant as their classic dinnerware!! Juliska’s Berry & Thread pieces have always been my go-to, so I opted for their gorgeous Berry & Thread Melamine Dinner Plates and to add a pop of color I placed their Oceanica Melamine Salad Plates on top! For glassware I stayed with the Berry & Thread theme {these glasses are my favorite of the collection!!} and I chose the Isabella Acrylic Goblet and Tumbler. Once…
