Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

I so love the saying on this pillow, and the touch of turquoise.  Perfect for the porch swing this summer. This has to be one of my most favourite things; It comes in several sizes – I ordered the 18″ size and the form to go inside for a small extra charge.  It looks perfect […]

The Ocean is Where I Belong

How great would this look on a white wall?  Loving the color and the mermaid swimming with the fish! Painted directly on wood from reclaimed pallets makes this doubly special – indulge your desire for all things turquoise and/or mermaid AND recycle!  It is the best of both worlds!  Guilt free shopping – gotta love […]

Round Beach Blanket

LOVING this beach blanket, set yourself apart at the beach this summer with this gorgeous pattern – can also be worn as a cover-up – kind of a cool idea; whip off your cover up and spread it out to bask on.  I’ve started seeing these on the beach and they’re so much prettier than […]

Do Not Disturb

Who doesn’t love a straw hat for the summer? And this is a great hat to wear to the beach, especially one with a lot of people trying to sell you stuff at your lounger. LOVE IT!  Now if they had it in Spanish – lots of beach vendors in Mexico and the Dominican Republic […]

Relaxing Waves of Anegada

Hey Beach Bums! Sitting at a desk wishing you were at the beach?  Well do I have something for you!!  Enjoy a few minutes of the sound and sight of waves washing up on the sugar white, powder soft sands of the Caribbean Island of Anegada, BVI.     I hope that helped! Love and […]

life at the beach

Miami Beach, Florida

Hey BeachBums! Great for people watching, the beach is right beside a busy strip of art deco hotels, great sidewalk restaurant seating, and gift shops filled with souvenirs (mosaic flamingos, anyone?).  The beach is wide and white, the water vibrant shades of blue and bath-water warm.     Sun and Sand!

Beach Life Isn’t All Sun and Sand

Hey there BeachBums! Brace yourselves…. So apparently island life isn’t all white sand, warm water, a balmy breeze to keep one cool, and a margarita at hand to keep one cooler. I don’t remember how I came across it, but I was reading a Discovery article about Amelia Earhart. It seems there’s some evidence that she and […]
