Summer is right around the corner and here are just a few staples that we all need to pick up ASAP!!

New beach bag
By the end of each summer my beach bag is dirty, caked with sand, and pretty much destroyed.  Showing up to the pool on opening day with a brand new bag is like showing up on the first day of school in new clothes, it's a must!!
I picked this Lilly bag up last month in Florida and it was $20.  Now technically it is a market bag but it is thick, water resistant and oh so cute so I am taking it to the pool.

If you are feeling adventurous Sunday morning and want to wake up at 6am, stand in a crazy line for 2 hours before Target opens, then hope to God you don't get trampled to death you can find this cute Lilly for target bag 

and as long as you are there, throw in this cute cover up

Also on my summer staple list is my summer lip stick.  I keep hearing "Dior Addict" and then my sister in law was wearing it in your basic color over the weekend, I mean my search is over.   It is the perfect color for summer

Watermelon Juice
You. Must. Drink. This!!

It is hydrating, delicious, low calories, sugar free, and pure juice from watermelons.  Something tells me this is also pretty tasty with a splash of vodka.

This seems a little random, but my girl Ina knows her stuff, it is so light and refreshing and its a staple sandwich in France.  If it's good enough for the French it is good enough for me


Full disclosure, I am really not a Birkenstock girl.  I have never taken to the grunge look, however these new, fresh metallic birks have actually gotten me to waiver, kind of.  I am not ready to invest around $200 for shoes that I do not LOVE, but I will fork over $30 for the target knock offs

celebrities are so on board with this....

I have to admit, the most comfortable walking shoe around!!

Easter Tablescapes

Every year around Easter time I tell myself I should put up some spring decorations and every year I just draw a blank.  Hanging a bunny on my front door really isn't my style and what else is there??

umm how about flowers!!

Today I am going to the farmers market and let my creative juices flow.  My plan is create something just fabulous for my table for Easter, thank goodness for pinterest.  I do love the special touch of adding something seasonal to my flowers.


plastic eggs


and the best thing I have seen with carrots and asparagus in a long time

and if this still does not help you, take a class at your local florist.

We are all ready to go here.
