Everything has a price tag. In our case, living in an idyllic beach village in Costa Rica while one of the coldest winters in years descended on our home in Brooklyn, meant dealing with a few scorpions, perpetual dirt on our floor, and giving up Amazon. At a beach party shortly after arriving, I lamented to my new mom friend about how I could not stand the feeling of dirt on my feet. She sweetly laughed and said, ‘We have a lot of unwinding to do on you”. I knew this was true, and it would be a good thing for me.Read More

Are you ready for take off? Tray tables locked, seats up, belts fastened and your toddler quietly, pleasantly sitting in his seat not kicking the person in front of him.

Recently my friend, Carly, introduced me to a great new product for summer -
. So I took one for a spin in Montauk a few weeks ago to see if it was as great as it sounded.
The towel in Aqua was a perfect compliment to my new Urban Outfitter high-waist 2 piece. The
is incredibly stylish for the fearless, and also is great for
bellies that poke out a bit.
The First thing I loved about the SunTaker towel was PACKING!!!
While it acts like a beach towel, it's a fraction of the size leaving more room in your beach bag for trashy novels and other important beach gear.
As you know, I'm a huge fan of the
for beach wear because they are thin, versatile and stylish. Well, the Suntaker towel is all of these things, but it has the added benefit of blocking harmful UV rays. You gotta keep your skin protected during summer. --- hopefully soon they will add stylish prints to the assortment. (hint hint ;)
So save space, add another layer of protection to your skin - oh and it drys quickly too! ---
