Summer at the Beach

Vitamin A "Redondo" Romper, H&M Bikini, Betsey Johnson Straw Tote, Jeanne Simmons Beach Hat, Madewell Belle Sandals, Beach Towel, Marc Jacobs Aviator Sunglasses, Fekkai "Summer Hair" Cooling Shine Mist, Lancome Juicy Tube, Bvlgari Mon Jasmine Noir Perfume, Nars Laguna Bronzer, Nars Eyeshadow Trio, Chanel Le Vernis Nail Color, Deborah Lippman Boom Boom Pow Nail Color.

A few weeks ago we were vacationing at the beach, enjoying the sun, sand and surf. The time seems to pass so quickly and before you know it, you are heading back home and wishing you could have stayed for just one more day. As our family grows, it seems like we are carrying arms loads of stuff out on to the beach....chairs, umbrella, towels, bags, toys and a cooler. It seemed to be so much more simpler when it was just the hubby and I. Here are a few items that I had in my beach tote and a few that I am totally crushing over!

Weekend in Pictures

Sorry, I have been a little MIA as of late. We have been so busy! We've gone camping, fishing, a trip to NYC, and the it has been a little crazy around here and my blogging and DIY projects have gone by the wayside. So, I am back! Refreshed and ready....can you believe how fast the summer has gone by? School is starting soon which can only mean one thing.....Christmas is just around the corner!

Here's a few snapshots from our trip to the beach. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect beach day.....sunny and mid 80's. We stayed at this lovely mid century modern hotel on the beach. This hotel was super swanky with a wonderful owner who treated us like we were more than just guests. I can't wait to go back and visit again soon.
 Diva Darling in appropriate beach attire....Hello Kitty bikini! The sand was soooo soft and I just couldn't help but run the sand through my fingers and toes.
Here's a photo hubby snapped of me....he could have at least told me my bra strap was showing!
 Perfect pedi for the beach....Turquoise and Caicos from Essie.
 Does anyone else love to draw in the sand?
I just couldn't get enough of the views. I think I took a million photos of the beach grass and surrounding scenery. Our visit was so short, and as soon as we left we were wishing we had stayed just a day more. This is definitely a must do vacation for our family each summer. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.
