Summer Giveaway

I can't believe how fast this summer is flying by! I can't even think about it. It makes me miss Florida and the endless summers there. When August came rolling around I was just as happy as a clam knowing that it wasn't an end to summer, but only just the beginning of a beautiful "summer" winter. Anyways, I LOVE SUMMER and I LOVE THE SUNSHINE soooooooooooo much.
I have a really fun giveaway involving some of my favorite summer items!

This Albion Fit swimsuit has been a favorite of mine. It's perfect because it covers everything, and it's still as comfy as can be. Every time I wear it I get compliments galore.
 PLUS the owners are some friends of ours and they are seriously great people.

A few years ago we were spending the day at Clearwater Beach in Florida. We were wandering around the beach shops on the beach and needed a serious air conditioning break for a minute, so we spent some time in a Ron Jon Surf Shop. I saw this giant display of Sun Bum products and I immediately was hooked. The smell!!!!!!!!!!!!! It got me from the very beginning. Just like summer should smell. It's heavenly. I use their face stick on my girls every single day. I can't say enough good about Sun Bum.

These Hayden Reis bags remind me so much of my favorite beach in all of Florida. Anna Maria Island. It's unreal. Truly the best beach I've ever been to. I found these bags at a small beach shop on Anna Maria years ago and I am so excited to have them as part of this giveaway.

These bags and their creator come from .... guess........ my favorite place....... Florida of course!
They are made from sailcloth and are water/sand resistant. They are perfectly functional and stylish.

This summer giveaway( valued at over $250)  includes:
 a swimming suit of YOUR choice from Albion fit,
 a Sun Bum product bundle, and a darling Hayden Reis Beach Bud Bag.
