What’s In My Beach Bag… and Win a Gift Card!

12 Jul

As I was doing my Friday morning ritual of cleaning out and re-packing my beach bag in preparation for a weekend of chasing my kiddo around the pool, I was laughing at the amount of things that I feel are “necessities” for our activities. Most of these “must-haves” can be found at Rapunzel’s Closet. This exercise inspired me to do the blogger’s “obligatory:” What’s In My Beach Bag Post.
blogSadly, this is only a portion of what I carry to the pool with us each weekend. The bag is still filled with tennis clothes, extra swim suits, rash guards, an additional outfit for both myself and my little, and clean Hanky Panky undies of course! I never forget my US Weekly Magazine either – it’s my mini-vacay while my little naps.
blogLiterally, the first purchase that I made after my son was born and we had “officially” announced his name, was my L.L Bean Boat and Tote Bag with his monogram. I truly believe that I cannot survive my summer without it. It seems to be bottomless and yet I can always find what I need. Of course you’ll see how many other bags I carry within it which makes it easier for me to find things. I also carry RCR’s Jesse Walker lunch bag. I love this insulated bag because I can fit all of his snacks and an ice pack fits perfectly in the inner pocket. It smushes easily to fit in my bag, yet doesn’t totally crush his snacks. I wish we sold these at Lil Rapunzel’s – I’d buy one for each day of the week. Another staple in my weekend life is my white waffle makeup case. It’s lined in plastic and holds my “pool” makeup in case we decide to stay for drinks or dinner. Unfortunately we no longer carry these in store, but there are plenty of places that offer a white monogrammed makeup case! I also happen to be a little obsessed with monograms in case you hadn’t noticed.
blogI have a blonde hair, blue eyed child so I plow through sunscreen like it’s my job. I love the BabyGanics Sunscreen Spray because it doesn’t have bad chemicals. Something about the label and the big NO just makes me feel good about using this line. What I love about the spray is that I can cover a large amount of area before my tot starts running towards the pool. This isn’t an aerosol can so it’s not emitting fumes of any sort either!

Sunscreen Bag ~ $25 (more colors available)
Anchor Bikini Bag ~ $30

The newest additions to my beach bag this summer are my Hayden Reis Sailcloth Bags. I was carrying my Sunscreen around in a Ziploc, (apparently a big no-no) but now I have it in this super cute “sunscreen specific” bag. As an added bonus – the bright orange color makes it easy to find! I also love the Anchor Bikini Bag. While you won’t find me sporting a bikini while I’m chasing around a 2-year old, it’s great for getting all of our wet clothes home after a day at the pool. These bags are made of super durable and lightweight sailcloth and they are way more chic than a plastic bag!

Snapping Turtle Kids Toddler Navy Swim Trunk ~ $52

My son goes through no less than 4 bathing suits per weekend. I love this Snapping Turtle Kids simple navy swim trunk because I know that it will match whatever rashguard I have in my bag. These suits aren’t lined so they don’t leave marks on my toddler’s chunky thighs. Baby swim designers always forget that these little guys wear swim diapers for a while so they don’t need a liner. Snapping Turtle Kids really understands how to make a swim trunk for a little swimmer!

TKEES in bunches of colors all available at Rapunzel’s Closet ~ $50

When I got to the bottom of my bag I noticed that I had THREE different pairs of TKEES in the bag.  My collection seems to have migrated from my closet to the beach bag. I have probably thrown a different pair in every weekend for the last month and never actually cleaned any out. Knowing me – I’d probably wear three different pairs in one day anyway. Totally normal, right?

So there you have it – a long-winded tour of my personal beach bag. Now it’s your turn to tell us what favorite item from Rapunzel’s Closet is in your beach bag!

Line we Love ~ Fig & Bella + a Giveaway!

30 Apr

Fig & Bella made our trip to Vegas last year totally worth it. When we saw these gorgeous dyed scarves in various prints and colors it was like we had found our new best friend that never leaves our side. Since placing our first Fig & Bella order back in August of last year we have continued to sell out of these scarves regularly. If you don’t have one yet – you are missing out! blog

Fig & Bella, a modern anthology of scarves and shawls – hand dyed, hand printed, hand woven.  Hand is especially important. It must be soft and lofty.  It must drape and have body.  This can only be achieved by using the finest fibers of natural materials: cashmere, silk, wool, cotton, bamboo…
Working closely with artisans and craftspeople, the design team reinterprets their hand and traditional techniques using a modern color palette and abstract textures. 

Luxuriously worn as a head wrap, around the neck, around the shoulders, or even around the waist, they appeal to stylish women and men everywhere.
