Versa Brella 4-Way Swiveling Sun Umbrella


Versa Brella 4-Way Swiveling Sun Umbrella – Midnight Blue

Living close to the beach has it’s perks, yes, but it has never occurred to me until we moved here that we would have to carry EVERYTHING. In past years we would sit in a car for an hour or so looking for close parking and just walk straight into the sand with our belongings. This is no more, we tow everything and everyone on our bikes or walk with a wagon for a good 30 minutes before we reach the sea. Having shade once we get to the beach has been a struggle for me (especially if I’m going without the husband). Carry a canopy to the beach? With three kids 7 years and younger?

Oh, no thanks.

This clamp on umbrella is (I think) the best thing I’ve bought for the beach recently. The Versa Brella is Super light-weight and rolls up into a bag with a strap. You can change the angle of the umbrella to block the sun from pretty much any direction. Genius. I haven’t used it at the beach yet (still getting over the fear of taking my crazy kids to the beach by myself) but I’ll update asap.

David’s Tea – Feel Good Iced Teas

David’s Tea – Sample Pack

I’m not linking the actual item I have because I don’t see it on Amazon… Photo of the actual tea I have here:

I received this set as a birthday gift yesterday and I’m dying to try it asap… I’m just having a hard time getting over the fact that I’ll have to rip open the pretty packaging (anyone else out there like this?) Personally, I can’t wait to try the Mermaid Tea which is Spiruline Marine flavor that has a pineapple / butterfly pea / moringa flavor. This one has a really pretty mermaid blue color to it.

Starbucks Color Changing Cold Cups

Ok, So I get sucked into online fads once in awhile but I’m so glad I got sucked into this one. These cups are SO pretty… I just can’t. If you didn’t know already these cups are limited edition and sold out in all stores. If you want to get your hands on one you’ll have to pay the inflated price online… which is what I did… Because it’s my mo’f’in birthday and I can.

I’m linking the product into Amazon here but honestly you’ll find much better prices on eBay for this one. Tip: Try to find a seller who has sold more than one of this product and has a few reviews for this particular item already… because I can only imagine the number of people who might be selling fake cups on a platform like eBay. The seller I purchased from also bundled the marble hot cups into the order and I paid a total of $80 for all 5 of the color changing cold cups and 5 marble hot cups. Although this was the cheapest price I found for this product… Don’t tell my husband I spent $80 on plastic cups… thanks.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm – Sweet Violet

This product isn’t new what-so-ever but it’s something I’ve been using for YEARS. This is the only lip balm I’ve ever used to the end. The absolute end…as in I take a small brush and dig out the product from the base. This balm is my daily must have item and it’s perfect for daily use when I don’t feel like putting on lip stick. The sweet violet color is the only one I like and I feel it goes with pretty much any skin tone.

Crown Churroz – Korean Snack

Koreans? Making Churros? When I saw these at the Korean supermarket, I’ll be honest I was a bit skeptical because I just love Churros… You guys, They nailed it. These are amazing. Chunchy, cinnamon sugary, little sticks of joy. I’m pretty sure they’ll be cheaper at your local Korean market but I’m linking them to Amazon so you can take a closer look. Make sure you purchase the brand name “CROWN”. Knowing Korean brands there will be a few other companies trying to make a similar product right down to the packaging to attract customers.

Lowrey’s Bacon Curls Microwave Pork Rinds Chicharrones

Obviously, I’ve given up on any diets this month…

Ok, If you like pork rinds, you need this in your life. It will change you, I promise. I’ve gotten 3 people on Amazon subscription to this product just this past week.

My husband and I discovered this these pork rinds at the DOLLAR STORE. Yep… The 99 Cents Only store to be exact. These aren’t in the usual chip aisle so you’ll have to search for them. I thought a dollar for 1 bag was a good deal – it’s so much cheaper on Amazon! If you’re hesitant about buying a whole pack of 18 just try your local 99 Cents Only Store. If you like pork rinds I promise you’ll love these.

Imagine this: You have a microwave popcorn bag. You microwave it for a couple of minutes and when you rip open your bag there are hot, crackling and popping pork rinds. My life is complete ya’ll.
