Summer bucket list

July 18, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_4156-960x744.jpg

Summer is my favorite time of year! There is always so much I want to get done during this season. Like camping, beach trips, music festivals and traveling! But making a Summer Bucket List is so much more fun. Every week, pick out one of the sticks with an activity on it. Whatever the popsicle stick reads, that is what summer fun you will be having that week/day. This is also a super easy way to never get bored.

Here is what you’ll need:
1. Popsicle sticks

2. Sharpie

3. Craft paint and spray paint

4. Mason jar

Start by spray painting all the popsicle sticks white! (Or any other color you prefer)

Once the spray paint has dried, take some fun summer colors and paint the tips of the popsicle sticks.

Let all the paint dry.

Next up, start listing different summer activities on each stick.

Once you have finished listing all your summer activities you wish to complete, add them all to the jar. Set the jar somewhere in your room so that it is always available when you and your friends need something exciting to do! Happy Summer!

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??

Ah, summer is back and live in action! We can’t wait to hit the beaches and bask in the summer sun! Who else is ready for school to be officially over? Relaxing in the sand is something I never get tired of. I am always, always wearing a beachy wrist and I am here today to share a few of my FAVORITE stacks and bracelets. Follow along as I guide you with the perfect beach wrists.

Firstly, what better bracelet to wear than the wave? This one is my all time favorite especially for this time of year. Wear it alone, together or stack with others.

Here are a few other bracelets and charms that I LOVE pairing with the wave bracelets.

Moving right along, the mini anchors are always a classic pick! Nothing says “beach babe” more than this super cute charm! My favorite color it comes in is the seafoam green.

Okay, so maybe I wear too much blue? But who doesn’t in the summer months? Here, I’m wearing my favorite original bracelet.

Last but not least! You guys always ask what my favorite bracelets are. Well here you have it! The Gold Hammered Flat Bar Cream + the Seed Bead Blush.

Find them in the Coco Ho Pack!

Cheers to the weekend! We thought we’d kick off this beautiful, sunny day on the water! What better way to spend a Saturday? Load up the cooler, grab your bestie and hop on the boat. Time to cruise away to an island for awhile!

All aboard. We took the boat to one of our favorite locations, Masonboro Island. This is where many people come and spend the day with friends and family while enjoying the beachy views.
