Diving into summer


With Memorial Day having passed and July 4th quickly approaching, it’s safe to say that summer is here and that means summer shopping is upon us! Who doesn’t love stocking up on all the new seasonal essentials and refreshing that skincare routine to coordinate with the weather. You never know when a last minute beach, pool, and/or lake day will arise so it’s important to be ready at a moment’s notice.

Obviously, in order to hit that body of water, a cute bathing suit and a go-to pair of sandals are a must! Over at BrandEdit we can’t live without our Andie Swimsuits and Teva Sandals. With easy to match colors and wardrobe staple styles, you can’t go wrong, but our current favorites are the The Mykonos  and The Tulum suits, and for sandals the  Teva Midform and Hurricane Drift are our current go-tos.

Of course a day in the sun isn’t complete without a cooler full of goodies! What’s inside that cooler you may ask – Well, for us that means our Hydrojug water bottle to start, which keeps us hydrated all day with a ½ gallon capacity to last the entire afternoon and then our favorite alcoholic Nude Beverages ,with the option for either hard iced teas or hard seltzers.

If you’re under the age of 21 or just looking for something flavorful, but without any alcohol, then Olipop is here to save the day! With so many fun, tasty, unique flavors to try, every flavor is a winner, as they are the perfect soda alternative, packed with prebiotics, 50 mg of caffeine, and low in sugar. Now that our thirst has been quenched, it’s also equally as important to secure the snacks!

If granola bars or protein bars are more your speed then try one of Gomacro’s convenient and healthy protein bars packed with nutrients. From Granola + Coconut to Blueberry + Cashew Butter, Gomacro bars are all vegan, organic, kosher, soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten free, so you can enjoy confidently! On the other side of the snack debate are those who like to consistently “pick” or have something small to reach for time and time again, and so for those endless snackers, our go to is always Wonderful Pistachios (Salt and Vinegar or BBQ Pistachios) or any fun flavored nut – ultimately keeping the snacking going, but keeping it healthy at the same time.

It truly can’t be summer unless we have that glowing skin, and what better way to effortlessly achieve a tan than with Self-Tanning Drops by Isle of Paradise. Just blend a few drops into your favorite moisturizer or lotion, and within hours watch your skin develop into a sunkissed, golden or bronzed look depending on the number of drops you include. With these self-tanning drops you no longer have to feel like your face is lighter than the rest of your body, as these drops are perfectly suitable and actually recommended for your face and are available in a light, medium, and dark option. So, tan on and move into summer confidently! Remember, in order to have a summer body all you need is YOUR BODY + SEASON OF SUMMER = SUMMER BODY!
