The items in this post have been provided to me in exchange for a review. As always, all opinions are honest and my own!
In spite of the fact that Halloween decor is in absolutely every store, PSL’s are being cranked out left and right at Starbucks, and that I enjoyed the tastiest
slices slice of homemade apple crisp last night😜, summer ain’t over yet!!!
So whether you plan on hitting up the pool over this holiday weekend, or if you’re like me and living in a place that hasn’t cooled down quite yet, these 5 pool time essentials are for you!
Let’s make the most out of these final summer days!
1. A Swimsuit You Feel Confident In
Having a suit you can wear with confidence is an absolute must! I know that confidence must start from within, but the truth of the matter is that this particular article of clothing, perhaps more than anything else, can bring out so many insecurities!
If you’re anything like me, the thought of having a “beach body” or getting “swimsuit ready” can sometimes drudge up those feelings of being inadequate. Especially if you’re not where you want to be physically. In spite of that, you should never let that stop you from having fun in the sun!
I’m so thankful for my Rad Swim suits. I wore them all summer long and instead of zooming in on all the things I’d like to change, I want to be able to enjoy these moments with my girls. I know they’re just happy to be in the pool with their mama, and nothing else matters to them! Besides, any suit that allows me to twin with my beautiful daughters is an absolute winner!!
2. The Right Sunnies
My girls have been wearing their Babiators all summer long and they love them! The fact that they haven’t lost them is a testament in itself! Lol. They are cute and fit both of their faces well, but most importantly, my babies eyes are being protected from harmful UV exposure! Babiators is all about providing a quality pair of sunglasses for your child, while providing importing sun safety education too!
3. The Perfect Towels For Drying Off
It’s all fun and games until my kids step foot outside the water and start complaining about being wet and cold! Ugh!! Hahaha! Thankfully that has been the least of my worries since we started using their custom towels from Stitches By Natalie!
First off all, these are too stinkin’ cute!! They can be personalized in so many ways and I’ve found that my girls have a different sense of ownership when they know something was made just for them. Aside from being adorable, they are durable, warm, and long enough to actual cover their whole bodies! Not only do we use them poolside, but they are in heavy rotation for bath time too.
4. A Poolside Snack
Let me start by saying that if you go to the pool without a snack, you might as well turn around and go home! LOL!! I’m so serious though!! These little ones don’t want to hear your excuses when their tummies start growling, so to ensure that I stayed in their good graces, I brought Squeaky Pops!! We’ve been chomping on these all natural popsicles all summer! They come in a variety of flavors, and they’re low calorie, dairy and gluten free!
I definitely won mom points for these!
5. A Special Friend
The fun is doubled when you have someone to enjoy these summer adventures with, and I’m so grateful that these two have each other!
Even though they work each other’s nerves sometimes, they truly have the best time when they’re together. They are two peas in a pod, always looking out for each other and having the best time. This alone makes my heart so full and happy!
Oh summer, we will miss you, but you’ve been good to us this year!
