Happy August! We're getting deep into summer here so if we're not going to be at the beach or in the pool, we may as well be gazing deeply into Pinterest, right? So on that note, here are some of my favorite summer party pins!

I loved Twink's all-time favorites yesterday! So I've put together some of my own to share with you today.

My goal is to create the softest, coziest, sleepiest bed ever. So incredibly soft sheets from Hudson Park are essential. 

I owe it to Twink for showing me the way of the One&Only Palmilla. She honeymooned there and knew I would love it. She was the right, it made for an incredible destination wedding.

Iโ€™ve tried other bath robes where youโ€™re just soggy, but the greatest thing about this RH bathrobe is that it actually dries you. 

I have the driest skin but I love that this Beautycounter tinted moisturizer make my skin look dewy. 

It wouldn't be a Twink + Sis list without kombucha. I am obsessed with Revive -- my current favorite flavor is Spring Fling, although I do love Tropic Wonder too.

My go-to sandal for the summer are these gladdies from FitFlop. So easy and comfortable. 

How much do you love things that help organize your kitchen? This utensil holder from Williams-Sonoma has been the perfect fit.

I like my jewelry to be simple, understated and minimal so I love these Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham crystal teardrop earrings. 

The most delicious coconut water, Taste Nirvana.

Most weekends I find myself in Montecito. It's just over an hour drive to this glorious beach town so I like to take advantage of our beautiful coast as much as I can.

Wishing you lots of beach time this summer! xoxo



I was trying to think of what we could do on a Wednesday evening on one of the last days of summer (even though the hot weather continues way too long here) and decided on a scavenger hunt. I used to LOVE scavenger hunts as a teenager (and twentysomething) -- wildly running around the city trying to outsmart the other team. For Mila's (3) first scavenger hunt I went #ssis (so simple it's silly) for both our sakes. I literally wrote Rock, Flower, Leaf and Stick, with a box to the left of each, on a piece of paper.

Mila setting her sights on a flower to check it off the list.

Proudly carrying her list along the hunt.

As you can see, I literally scribbled on a piece of copy paper. But the little boxes worked so well because she LOVED putting the item in the square. It was so fun to see her get into it -- she was so proud! We'll definitely do more and get more advanced/adventurous as we go!

Do you feel that annual excitement when Target puts out the big display of bouncy balls every summer? Me too! How amazing are bouncy balls? Lets count the ways. They come in an array of visually pleasing colors, they're bouncy, they are more fun to play with than any other ball (factually-proven), they're cheap, great for beach, pool or park, and they make your summer better instantly.

We're ready for Labor Day!
