|The Sip & Spin Cup has a pinwheel that spins every time you take a drink.|
#1. The Sip & Spin Cup. It's a simple concept really, you sip, the pinwheel on the top of the cup spins, and it's brilliant. What little one wouldn't love having their very own pinwheel in a cup whenever they wanted something to drink? My granddaughter loves hers, and her mom said it's fast become her favorite cup. I'm glad she likes it, and I suspected she would. Grandma's are good at guessing these things, you know. :) She already likes to drink water and eat healthy, but if your child is resistant to water as a drink, making this the 'water cup' could increase her/his (there is a boy version too) intake by a whole lot. :)

|These 7th Heaven Peel Off Masks are Awesome & they cost under $5 a piece!|
#2 The 7th Heaven Green Tea Peel-Off mask is just what the doctor ordered for a little me-time. The heat this time of year can be harsh on our skin, and what better way to replenish than with a little down time & pampering. These kinds of masks are my favorite, they actually feel like they put moisture back into your skin. I like to peel way better than I like to wash off mud (though 7th Heaven has mud and self-heat spa masks as well). These are clear and you can feel them working to invigorate your skin. I say buy one of these for every gal you know, invite them over and have a Girl's Day.
Peel Off masks are gentler and more effective than scrubs whilst leaving skin incredibly purified and smooth. You'll be amazed at how many dead skin cells show up on the mask after use. So why not jazz up your weekly scrub routine and use a peel off instead!

|No Ad is always our go-to sunscreen for the kids!|
#4 No-Ad is our go-to sunscreen and has been for as long as I can remember. Here in south Florida, the summers get HOT, and the kids are outside, a lot!! I want to make sure they're protected head to toe with something I can trust. Ad Sense does the job well. I'm happy to say (knock on wood) that my kids have never gotten a burn, not even a little bit, while using it. It comes in big bottles, little bottles, different spf's, sprays, and even a stick. My son recently took a bottle to camp (swimming day) and the bottle didn't come back. I was in mourning. ;) Luckily, I can and did, pick up a new bottle the next time I went shopping. It's reasonably priced and the best sunscreen around for protecting precious skin.
Great for sensitive skin. The entire NO-AD line is now paraben-free, retinyl palmitate-free.? And baby products are fragrance-free, oil and dye-free, hypoallergenic and enriched with cocoa seed butter and vitamins. Organic beeswax allows the stick to apply super smoothly unlike other baby sunscreen sticks that drag on delicate skin. Lower cost per ounce than national brands. NO-AD costs less because "no advertising" means it doesn't buy expensive TV, print, and radio ads.
|Acquarella Nail Polish is fragrance-free and non-toxic|
|Weleda.com has so many great beauty products,|
including this Almond line for your face
#6. Weleda makes an excellent line of products for your face that I thought I would mention too. The slight almond scent in the product I received for my face was very pleasant and felt refreshing. I think scents really do have the ability to soothe, and the slight scent of almonds makes me happy. You can get items for your face in any form, lotion, oil or cream. The product feels high quality and does what it says (soothes your skin). I wouldn't mind shopping around to see what else they have. They certainly don't lack variety on their website. Take a look for yourself if you have a minute. They have a ton of great sounding beauty products for sale.
- Hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and 100% natural
- Intensive cream that deeply moisturizes and calms dry, sensitive skin
- Restores skin’s natural balance and strengthens its protective barrier

|Pebblebee lets you take selfies, text friends, track items and more!|
#8. Pebblebee This is one of the most expensive, but still reasonably priced items on the list, considering all that it does. The Pebblebee Stone is easy to use: download the app on your iPhone or Android device. Set up your Stone. The directions will walk you through how to do it. The stone has a tracking mode, so you can find whatever it is you have stuck it to... but it does so much more than that alone! You can text friends, control your music, snap selfies with it and more. The uses for this are numerous and once you get the hang of it you'll wonder how you lived without it.
#9. Shoe Slotz I hate trying to find a good place to store my shoes. They're either unattractively sitting around in a bunch, or they're lined up taking up way too much space on the closet floor. I don't like the see-through plastic pouches (just a personal preference), and when they're on a closet shelf, there's no room left for anything else.
The solution? Shoe Slotz. what a lovely invention. They double the storage space in your closet instantly and they keep your heels from getting scuffed or marked up). I like this idea! I like my Shoe Slotz. :)
|Mytee Scoopy traps condensation!|
SCOOPY was invented in New Zealand as a way to deal with the annoying condensation that forms on windows during Winter months. That condensation is caused by warm air meeting cold air. This could take place on an exterior window, on a shower door, on a mirror, on a wall...the list goes on and on. If the water is left to drip down to the bottom, it could cause nasty mildew stains, which are ugly and potentially harmful. You could use a conventional squeegee, but the water is just going to pool at the bottom, so what's the point? You could use a towel, but who wants to do more laundry? De-humidifier - too expensive! SCOOPY helps you get rid of that water without puddles of water on your window sill, without extra laundry, and without the cost of a de-humidifying system!
And there you have it. My list of summer faves. :) Have you tried any on the list? Would you? What's your favorite? I can't pick a fave because they're all so different from one another. I can say I recommend each and everything thing though, that's on the list. :)
