Find the Perfect Swimsuit For Memorial Day Fun!

22 May

With Memorial Day coming, is your water wardrobe ready?

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and that means lot’s of summer activities, especially going to the beach or hanging out by the pool.

So how is your swimsuit situation?

Luckily, I’m always here to help!  I’ve put together a small sampling of perfectly fashionable swimsuits for the whole family!

First up, the ladies: Athleta & Macy’s

Athleta is home to a variety of designs, particularly for anyone who spends as much time in the water as they do exercising on the beach.  I wanted to include them since I know many of you like an athletic look to a swimsuit and one that is designed to stay on in the surf.

However, if you’re looking for a more traditional design, Macy’s has a positively huge selection to choose from!

For the guys, Macy’s is also my suggestion for the perfect pair of trunks!

And for the wee-ones, Naartjie Kids has some adorable swimwear for the summer! You might want to get two they’re so cute!

There you have it! A style for everyone in the family.

Let me know if you need ANY help finding the perfect style for your body type and I would be happy to help in any way I can.

Remember your sunblock!

23 Jul

Summer time can be a hard time for our skin – yes, we are finding ourselves happy to be away from the winter dryness, but summer also has its fair share of damaging effects, mostly from the harsh sun.  Summer skin care is very important and Sephora is one of the best places you can go for some seriously good remedies, beauty products, and self-tanners – all to keep your skin looking and feeling amazing!

Rainbow Sandals: Your feet will thank you!

29 May

“It began over 35 years ago. It was another beautiful day at the beach…when i saw yet another broken sandal littering the very beach I was enjoying. It gave me an idea. Why not make a better sandal, one that would last a long time and be comfortable? So the process began. I researched and experimented until the formula was just right. The final product was Rainbow Sandals, quality sandals that are second to none.”
-Jay R. Longley, Jr.
Founder/President of Rainbow Sandals

 I have an extensive collection of Rainbow Sandals in my closet and Mr. Jay R. Longley, Jr. is so right when he talks about the quality of these sandals being second to none.  Each pair I own is still in great condition and some of these I’ve had since my college years, I’m 29 now, so you can do the math!  Most people are aware of Rainbow’s awesome quality, so I’m not going to drag on too much about the great aspects (they last FOREVER) of these sandals but rather show you some of the new options popping up.  They aren’t just your classic style anymore, with new additions like crystal detailing, double layer arch, thin straps, wide straps  and even collegiate team logos,  Rainbow Sandals are still making waves around town!

You can find your very own pair of Rainbow’s at The Streets at Southpoint on the second level right next to the food court.
