Amazon Picks for Summer Kicks



Today I thought it would be fun to share some of my Amazon picks for summer.

Let’s get into the Summertime groove!

Not that you couldn’t use some of these other times of the year, but I discovered some of these items while anticipating the summer months.

**These are affiliate links, where the blog may make a small commision should you buy a product, at no extra cost to you. **

I will soon have an AMAZON Product page, where I will be curating items for my readers. You will be able to click on the link to the page soon. I hope to begin work on it this weekend.

So, Here are some goodies that I have been buying and  “eyeing” for this post.

Nail Polish-

If you do your nails at home, and want a beachy or sea loving color- this one, Nessie Plays Hide and Sea is lovely with some shimmer at that

Something a bit more light and shimmery? Try this one – This Color’s Making Waves

I ordered this by OPI and use it for a primer and top coat. Use the Infinite Shine colors to complete the look.

Cover- Ups

I ordered this exact kimono in white for the beach and to wear it for the summer. It will do double-duty with a pair of shorts and tank underneath.

I also love this blue shade. 

This cute coverup can act as a dress over your swimsuit if you want to go for drinks or eats.


Hair Products

I have been using Kerastase products  for years and this product is great for for when your hair gets dry. It is a heat protectant and doesn’t weigh your hair down. I put it on my ends

This “It’s a 10″leave in Spray is a Game Changer! My stylist gave me a bottle to try and then I bought it, it is so good! I use conditioner on my ends rinse it out,  and then pump about 4 sprays into the mid/ends of hair.( You leave in this product)  It makes it easy to comb-through and really softens the hair leaving it a more silky.


I have this ruched one piece suit in a peach floral. It no longer comes in that print, but there are 35 colors and prints to choose from.

This green would have been my second choice!

This is another pretty suit on Amazon. This one piece has shirring and flatters the tummy. I love this color, but it also comes in many others and it’s under $35!

Beach Bag- or Pool Bag

This striped bag is 100% waterproof and has a pocket for your water bottle. I love the rope! Very sea-faring!

This ex- Large mesh bag can dry quickly and comes with 8 pockets for lots of “stuff”.

I prefer a spray to a lotion, and like this 50 SPF spray for sun protection. My foundation and skin care all have SPF, most certainly am I going to use a high SPF when it comes time to being out in the sun.

This UPF 50 straw hat will look fashionable and protect from the sun. Its also foldable and packable.

I am going to need a hat for Avalon and the beach at the beginning of July. I did like the size and elegant look to this style.

It’s also foldable and priced right!

Well. I couldn’t pass up these girly flip flops with pearls now could i? I just need a pair for the beach and these are under $20.

This book by Taylor Jenkins Reid has been highly anticipated and it takes place in the summer months. This author also wrote “Daisy Jones and the Six”, if you are familiar.

From Amazon-
Malibu: August 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer… 

I am currently reading Kristin Hannah “The Four Winds” but am hoping to finish it before out trip.

I am getting just a bit excited for our family vacation, as I am sure many of you are! I think we all we be getting out there this summer!

Have a great weekend!
