What’s in my beach bag?

May 23, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_0215-960x640.jpg

If you are anything like me, you are a total beach bum. I get out in the sun to play in the waves as many chances as I can get! I mean, who wouldn’t in a little beach town? It’s only my most favorite thing to do–duh! Being prepared to spend the day near the shore is important though. And has a mermaid myself, (wink wink) I thought I would show you what I bring along with me! Let’s get started.

First off, having a happy tummy is always important! I make sure to bring along my all time favorite snack. I like to fuel up with smoothie bowls. They are a fresh, light snack perfect for a hot summers day. Now, I walk to the beach so it’s easy for me to grab and go. However, feel free to pour a smoothie in a to-go thermos and bring it along!

Besides bringing along my favorite wrist stack, here are the essentials to a successful beach day!

-My Shibori round towel (Shop it on the website)

-I keep all my little items such as: my favorite pair of sun glasses, tanning lotion to keep my skin hydrated, chap stick and beach accessories in my Ocean Child Clutch! (Coming to the website SOON!)

I always infuse my water with a few frozen berries! This is a must on a hot beach day.

Who else is exited for all the new summer clutches? How cute is my Ocean Child Clutch??

After this recipe you will never go back to eating pineapples and strawberries by themselves. Although delicious, something about the crisp, cinnamon chips enhances all the flavors.

  5. Half a stick of butter

Start by chopping up the strawberries into fourths. Once cut and ready, set them aside in a bowl.


Bring out da pineapple!

Cut the pineapple in half. Empty one half to be used as the serving bowl. You can use the pineapple chunks from both sides to mix later with the strawberries!

Processed with Snapseed.Now that you have both fruits cut, you can go ahead and mix them into the pineapple bowl!

Time to cut the tortillas into small triangles to be used as dipping chips

Once cut, put as much cinnamon and sugar as desired and mix into bowl.

Place on baking sheet covered in foil.

Indie Out

August 28, 2016 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_4290.jpg

We love being creative when getting ready in the morning. Anyone else out there?! What you put on your back can say a lot about who you are and what your interests involve! And the best part is that you can be whoever you want. But what’s even more crucial to your everyday look, are the accessories you rock! We’re gonna put an indie spin on our bracelets this time. Because hey, you get to choose who you are today! Kill the look with any bracelet, any time.

 

We went to the most beautiful little island. How could you resist that baby blue fringe along the white sand and crystal water?

We layered a beaded choker with a longer beaded necklace for the perfect pairing with the bracelets for this look.

What’s the finishing touch you may ask? Your beach hat– duh! Hats can be a great extra accessory to top it all off. 😉


DIY

Ocean Glass Bottles

August 14, 2016 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_3725.jpg

Who else loves to recycle? WE DO! For our little DIY this week we took a piece of the sea back home with us. Besides, who actually likes to say goodbye to the shore? Create your own island vibes in your very own home with just a few items!

What You’ll Need:

-Your favorite kind of seashells, sea dollars or any other beachy accent.

-Super glue & scissors

-Jute

-A few glass jars or bottles. We recycled some old spice bottles! We encourage you to get creative and reuse a material you already have in your home.

Let’s get started!

 


Here, all we did was begin to wrap the jute around the top of our bottle as shown below:


After we glued the ends to keep the jute in place, we added a seashell right in the center using super glue.



For our next bottle, we didn’t add as much jute, only a few wraps around the top.


We decided to put a sea dollar on this bottle. We slipped the jute through one of the holes in the sea dollar. Then tied the jute in the back, allowing the sea dollar to dangle just a bit.


Can’t forget to add a star fish!


Always a good day when creating your own beachy escape.


Finished product!


We tied jute around the neck of the bottle so we could hang them. Make yours whatever length you want!
