Friday Favorites: Summer Edition

Ahhh Friday!  Happy 4th of July!  I hope most of you are enjoying the day off for the holiday!  We always take at least a very long weekend over the 4th.  First of all, it's my favorite holiday.  There is just something magical about the fireworks, the boat rides and being at the lake.  It's one of the reasons we decided to get married over the 4th of July weekend.  Oh right, that would be the second of all.  We love taking a few days off and celebrating our anniversary!  Even before we were married, I always felt like it was "our" holiday....(fine...we will share with the rest of you too ;-) )

Our 4th wedding anniversary was yesterday, July 2nd.  So my first Friday Favorite today is my hubby...and our wedding photos.  Happy Anniversary babe!  So glad we always get to celebrate it at the lake!  (Yup, we met and got married there)

The rest of my favorites aren't exactly red, white and blue....more like pink, pink and pink.  Yup, I have a problem.  Even when I try to branch out....I always end up coming back to a little (or a lottle) pink.

2). Kate Spade Flamingo Ring

This picture doesn't show off the pink, but it does show off the ring!  Obsessed.

3).  Hayden Reis Bags

My brother gave me these awesome bags as a birthday gift.  I'd been eyeballing them for forever, so when they showed up for my birthday I was surprised and thrilled!  They got put to the test in Florida last month and they are a winner in my book!  Hayden Reis bags are made of sail cloth, so they are durable, easy to clean, water & sand resistant and best of all adorable to carry!

The wristlet is the perfect size for my cell phone, lip product, tissues, cash & a card, etc.  Because it is a wristlet, it was perfect to grab and go for a walk on the beach.  My camera easily fit inside of it as well.  The best part was I could put my valuables down on the sand and not have to worry about them getting ruined.

My Beach Bud Bag was perfect for keeping my magazines and Kindle sand free and dry.  There was plenty of room left over to fit more.  It could also be used to store a wet bathing suit and keep the other items in your beach bag dry.

I liked these so much, that I bit the bullet and invested in the large Ditty Tote that I have been drooling over for months.  It holds  A TON!

I seriously cannot say enough great things about these bags and I promise I'm not being sponsored for this post!  I just love them this much!

4). Swell Water Bottles

While in Florida shopping on Boca Grande, we ran into these water bottles.  Of course, anything hot pink I naturally gravitate to and I wanted to know more.  The sale associate was awesome and shared information on these stainless steel water bottles with us.  The bottles keep drinks cold for 24 hours, hot for 12 AND you can fit an entire bottle of wine inside of the largest 25 oz. bottle (they come in multiple sizes).  SOLD!

So we put it to the test.  After hours in the sun, there were still ice cubes in my water.  And as promised, an entire bottle of prosecco fit in it AND stayed cold!  Much easier than taking glass in the boat! (PS - That is my Hayden Reis wristlet just hanging out in the sand.  So awesome. PPS - Anyone else go to the beach with that much camera equipment??)

The only downside was, after putting it a metal cup holder on the boat, some of the pink rubbed off of the bottom of the bottle.  Not the end of the world, but I was definitely not please about my brand new bottle being scuffed.  I still love it and use all of the time!  I am guessing it will get put to good use holding wine and other beverages in the boat this weekend!

I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy lots of fireworks and time with family and friends!  Happy Birthday America!
