Even though summer has come and gone and the cooler weather is upon is, our family is ironically gearing up for a beach vacation to Mexico! As such, I wanted to recap some of my summer favorites and introduce some of the things we will be bringing on our beach vacation. A huge shoutout to Gugu Guru for helping me identify and find quality products through their personalized quiz. As a busy mama, this is exactly what I needed!
Bzees "Wander" Water Shoe
While at the beach, it is often hard to find a shoes/sandal that is comfortable, safe to get wet, and will allow you to chase after children on multi-terrain surfaces. The Bzees Water Shoes are amazing for this reason. I have this style here (in white - as shown above).
As a mama, it can be difficult to find functional, yet stylish "mom shoes" - if you will. The great thing about these shoes is that you can easily slip them on, they look cute (yet sporty) with most everything, they are easy to walk in, can get wet and are a reasonable price point. Right now, you can purchase the shoes for just under $40. No brainer!
Vyve Splash Pants
Because I am not quite in "bathing suit" shape, the vyve Splash Pants are especially amazing! Functional and stylish, you can throw on these splash pants for any and all water-involved outings. Basically like a swimsuit, I wear the pants over my one-piece. Be sure to get them tight so that there is no "bloat" if you are to swim in them.
Baby Mud Mineral Sunscreen
Sunscreen is always essential, duh. While we all understand that sunscreen is necessary in the summer months, choosing WHICH sunscreen to purchase can be difficult. This summer I tested out a new brand called Baby Mud Sunscreen. What is great about this mineral-based sunscreen is that it is easy and smooth to apply - without all of those nasty chemicals. If you're in the market to try a new sunscreen, this is a great option!
Learning Resources Water + Sand Toys
The Learning Resources Water + Sand Toys are - no joke - my favorite. Between my 7.5 month old, V, and my 2.5 year old, Lincoln, they cannot get enough of these water toys. We play with them in the bath, in the sun, in the house, and even bring them with us in the car. They will surely be joining us on our beach vacation to Cabo! Not only are they fun, but they are also educational. The sailboats and turtles, alike, teach my toddler about shapes, signs, numbers and colors. What could be more fun than pairing learning with fun toys? Highly recommend!
