Photo Books, Holiday Cards, Photo Cards, Birth Announcements, Photo Printing | ShutterflyI find that a photo book looks so professional, and is a great way to memorialize a specific time or event. I’ve mostly created photo books themed around wedding events and vacations with the hubby, and plan to do the same with this. We’re actually getting ready to go on our 2nd anniversary to Canada (Montreal and Quebec), and I will definitely want to capture this trip!

What will you create with your free book?

I haven’t personally tried them yet (although I’ve been paying a lot more attention to the brand lately and itching to test them out), but I just signed up for the deal and can’t wait to give it a shot. If it’s free, why not?!

$1 Flip Flop Day at Old Navy Today!

Today only, Old Navy is selling their solid color flip flops for only $1! This is the perfect time to stock up on different colors. You could even purchase as a base to create crafty DIY sandals with ribbons or whatever you dream up!

Another great option is to use these if you’re getting married. Having a beach wedding? Grab a bunch of sizes in your wedding colors as a guest favor. Even if you’re not having a beach wedding, it’s a cute idea to put a basket of complimentary sandals by the dance floor, to keep guests dancing when their heels start hurting! The limit is 5 per customer, so grab a few friends to help you out.

Cruise and Beach Vacation Essentials – Stock Up On End of Summer Sales!

Cruises, beaches, tropical resorts! You’re probably wondering why I’m doing this post going into Fall, huh? In my attempt to hang onto the last bits of Summer, I actually have good reasoning beyond that. Here’s why!

  1. Summer is ending so now is the time to find great stuff on clearance and stock up for next year.
  2. I live in Florida so it’s still 90+ degree beach weather!
  3. Most importantly, my husband Gary and I are celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary NEXT WEEK (yayyy!) on an 8-day Carnival cruise! SOO EXCITED!!! 🙂 While cruises are definitely top of my mind right now, I actually know a lot of other people who are going/just went on a cruise too. Makes sense because you can find great deals on cruises in the off-season.

Whatever the case, my universal problem with traveling has always been packing because, let’s face it, I pack way too much….I like options! So I thought long and hard to narrow the essential must-have pieces for a cruise or really any other beachy, tropical getaway. You can use this as a packing guide, or inspiration for items to hunt during these end-of-season sales.

CRUISE WEAR

Obviously it doesn’t have to be these exact pieces, but this is a general idea of basics to include. A few tank tops and shorts, a casual sundress, a swimsuit coverup, a nicer outfit you can dress up or down (like the romper), comfy flip flops, and dressier shoes that still look casual (platform wedges).

You’ll want to accessorize with a bag that is fairly neutral so you can wear it with everything, cool sunglasses, and a straw beach hat. Of course you’ll need a few bikini options, and I’d suggest mix-and-match bikinis so you can get more looks out of less pieces. Victoria’s Secret is actually having an end-of season sale right now on their swimwear, so I’d suggest checking it out! I just stocked up.

WHAT’S IN MY CRUISE BEAUTY BAG

If you’re like me and don’t want to be pale in a bikini, you should checkout the Style Trials Bronze Skin Series for the BEST Self tanners.

I just want to leave you with one last thing. Have a great Labor Day weekend, and think of me while I’M ON A BOAT!

 


Yeeeep, I just went there. 🙂
