How To Enjoy The Beach When You Don’t Really Like The Beach

In my mind, I am someone who can float through life, all free-spirited like, taking impromptu trips and just going with the flow. I envision myself as the type of person who can truly make it through the weekend with only a weekender bag. I’m the girl that can grab a towel and a bottle…

Must Haves: 10 Beach Totes & Towel Combos

Summer is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but I pack for the beach like I pack for a mini vacation. A beach tote is essential, and must be large enough to carry my towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, beverage, brush, and a change of clothes, but adorable enough to carry around town. I…

Hi/Lo: Island Photo Clutch

Is it summer yet? I’m dreaming of sand, sun, and saltwater. When I saw this Cynthia Vincent clutch, my heart screamed “need!” but my brain said “no way!” I have never purchased a clutch for $295 and have no intention of starting now. If you can’t wait to go to the beach, or wear the…

Weekend Playlist: I Know Where The Summer Goes

On the one hand, summer holidays are awesome. On the other, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of the season.

Peeing In The Ocean Is OK, Pooping Is Not

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been okay with peeing in the ocean. Mostly because it’s annoying to pee when you’re wearing a one-piece bathing suit, which I wore when I was a kid, so I just got into the habit of letting it flow in the ocean. I think most people feel…

Awesomely Affordable: 9 Beach Cover-Ups & Sarongs For $75 Or Less

Some ladiez have no problem busting around in their bikinis, but me? Not a fan. I like me some clothes, or at least a cover up that will take the pressure off. As you head out to the beach or pool or lake this weekend, consider a sarong. Sarongs offer a weird socially acceptable middle…

Do Not Want: If You Insist On Wearing This To The Beach, I’m Probably Going To Laugh At You

This here is a $295 beach cover up from Haute Hippie. I imagine this sort of thing would look totally appropriate if you’re sunning yourself on a billionaire’s private yacht off the coast of Ibitttttha. But for the 99.9999 percent of the rest of us for whom that seems a distant prospect, this “beach cover-up”…

The 11 Stages Of A Surprise Sunburn

We are all too familiar with the abusive nature of the sun. It’s like that snake cane Jafar carries around with him that makes you do whatever he wants. It’s alluring and inviting one minute, and just when you think you’re safe and call it quits, you can’t bend your knees without cringing in pai…

10 Awesome Summer Beach Reads

I’m all about reading — all of it and everything, and at any time, but my favorite place to read is most definitely the beach. With the return of 90 degree heat and high humidity, my mind starts wandering to getting my body to a seashore, stat. My beach reads usually consist of a clutch…

Nerd Girl Porn: The Beach Bod Edition

I still haven’t been able to figure out how a beach bod is different than a regular bod — other than the fact that the owner of bod just so happens to be at the beach. When I look at these pictures of Joe Manganiello emerging from the water like a Greek God, I sto…

The World’s Best Beach Chair

Come summer, there are only two places you’ll find me on the weekend — laying on the beach in Long Island or laying on my rooftop. Basking in the sun, soaking up that Vitamin D — always with a high SPF! — is something I’ve very serious about and comfort is key. That’s why I…

The Only Beach Bag Necessary

We used to schlep our stuff to the beach in a regular canvas tote bag that never really had adequate space. Then we came across Fashionable Notes’ Beach Bag, which has made beach-going a more practical and easy experience. The Beach Bag is large enough to hold a couple of towels or large sheets, a…

Department Of Nonsensical: Suri Cruise In Heels At The Beach

So, everybody knows that walking in heels in sand is virtually impossible. So why in the heck would both Katie Holmes and her little girl Suri Cruise wear heels to play around in the sand? The pair were spotted all dolled up at a Memorial Day beach party in Malibu. Ladies, ladies, ladies! Sensible flip-flo…

I’m not saying this elephant baby is drunk. I’m saying that this baby elephant’s rolling and thrashing and staggering pretty much approximates what I look like when I’m drunk. [YouTube]…
