Thank you St. Ives for sponsoring today’s Summer Days Essentials.
My son had his last day of school this week and I am so happy. Summer is finally here and I want to go do #allthethings with my kids this summer. I actually decided that I was going to make a bag up of some of my summer days essentials so that I have it ready to grab and go when we are feeling spontaneous.
First and foremost I had to pack lotion. My skin gets so dried out during the summer months and I feel like it is important to stay hydrated. These St. Ives Continuous Spray lotions are amazing. The St. Ives® Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion is my favorites for one reason and one reason only, it smells like a gorgeous, light perfume. I do believe it is the orchid extract that is making my heart sing but it is amazing. The St. Ives® Smooth & Glow Apricot Spray Lotion smells great too, it has an uplifting fresh scent and it is actually the one that my son prefers.
A few of the other things I have stashed away in my summer days essentials bag are a pair of sunglasses and some snacks. I can’t imagine needing too much more than that! haha We plan on taking the ferry down to Seattle for the day soon so these snacks will come in handy while we are sitting on the top deck in our sunnies watching the seagulls. If you are ever in the Seattle area you should definitely take a ferry somewhere, the Pacific Northwest makes has some great scenery.
A few of the other things I am planning on doing with my family is taking boat tours through Deception Pass. I live about 15 minutes from Deception Pass and it is a truly magnificent area. So much to do in one spot. We have already hiked down the side of the bridge to get down to the rocky beaches below and it was so fun. It is really windy through the pass though so like I said before, keeping lotion on hand is important.
St. Ives® Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion and St. Ives® Smooth & Glow Apricot Spray Lotion are easy-to-use spray-on lotions that instantly make skin feel soft and supple, without leaving a heavy residue. They contain 100% natural moisturizers (like glycerin and shea butter) and provide provide all-day hydration. Another plus side is that they basically dry on contact so you don’t have to worry about that sticky feeling.
So now that I have shared my summer days essentials I am asking you, how do you plan to live radiantly this summer?
