Sweet Summertime

Posted on June 17, 2016 by Jordan Keith | 0 Comments

Summer time is here! Well almost... the official start of Summer is Monday, June 20th! This recent heat, sure has us ready to pull out the SPF, beach balls, and towels. Around here, Summertime represents so many of our favorite things! 
Weddings, backyard bbqs, summer-inspired desserts, champagne, pool-side cocktails, and of course, celebrations galore!
Here are a few of our favorite summer desserts
They are literally everything! Have you tried our new flavors?
Pink Champagne Cupcake Poolside - because what more could you want?! 
Ice Cream Sammies - mix + match your cookies with your choice of ice cream. Perfect treat to beat the summer heat.

How can you resist the classic scoop of ice cream on a sugar cone? I know we can't. 
Summer wouldn't be the same without the essentials. Enjoy our top 5 picks from the "30 OMG-Worthy Beach Day Essentials under $100" courtesy of Brit + Co. {also one of our FAVES, all year-round} 
1. Urban Outfitters Pizza Slice Pool Float ($48): Second to dessert, pizza is a MUST. How can you not enjoy a day at the beach with this delicious float! 
2. Urban Outfitters Pineapple to-Go Sipper Cup ($8): We LOVE pineapples! Ask our #1 #GirlBoss, Andrea - pineapples are life.
Enjoy a Pina Colada or hydrate with a fruit infused water to beat the heat. 
3. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Palm Camera Case ($24): If you remember our wall at the Corporate Office, you will also remember that we love banana leaves too! This camera case is the perfect carry-all for memory-making. 
4.  Ban.do Vacation Beach Towel ($38): Everyone could use a vacation and this towel SCREAMS it! Toss it in the beach bag and hit the sand, champagne in hand. 
5. Anthropologie Playdate Necklace ($12): We love this playful Watermelon Necklace from Anthropologie {another one of our faves}. 
Life is short, eat dessert first, and take a bite out of Summer! 
We would love to know your summer favorites. Share them with us!
