With the start of the summer season kicking off this weekend many of us are thinking about what we need to make summer play a success.
SHARE YOUR FAVE SUMMER PRODUCTS (post a link if you can) and I will include them in a fun summer guide.
safe sunscreens and bug dope
toys/games for the yard and road trips
easy healthy snacks and drinks etc.
Thanks for your help!
OK, I'll start.
Here are a few eco summer products I can't seem to live without.
S'well Water Bottle: the best I have ever had. Keeps cold drinks cold and insulates warm drinks seemingly forever. Easy to clean and super eco friendly.
Badger Balm Bug Dope--we don't need this so much on the Oregon Coast where we live now, but I lived in MN my whole life and the mosquitoes there are insane. This really worked well and is completely natural so I could use on the kids. Love it!
We love Badger sunscreen and cute fun sun hats! Melanie Mayo I'll have to try the Badger bug dope

Yes! Sun hats are a lot of fun--my daughter really digs them. I love picking up unique ones at local summer markets.
Anyone else have products you use a lot in the summer? Water bottles or snacks, skin care, kids toys, travel gear, beach gear etc?
I just made some bug spray with my little girl the other night when she really noticed the bugs starting to bite. I just took a mini spray bottle, added a fresh sprig of rosemary, 10 drops tea tree oil, 10 drops patchouli, 10 drops eucalyptus & 10 drops lavender. Filled with water and shook really good.....works great so far, have been keeping it in the fridge. And we live in New Orleans, so it is certainly buggy, we'll see.
I know I find myself shopping for lightweight long sleeve shirts for myself this time of year, I am fair skinned and hate the feeling of the sun sizzling on my light skin.
I love the Tervis cups for keeping drinks nice and ice cold.
Fun sunglasses are a must. I look for them @ forever 21, target walgreens.
Cute swimsuits for tall women of my stature are hard to find, especially when you like one pieces. I look for vintage ones, they always seem to fit me better.
I am all about flip flops, actually year round. I like the Teva's and Reef.
Sundresses all. summer. long. I like the one's from old navy.
That's my summer list. I am going to look into other's reccomendations, thanks this is great :)
