Sizzlin' Summer Sandals

I'm all about the Old Navy flip flops. I mean, two for $5? You can't go wrong. It's sandal weather about nine months out of the year in Southern California so I feel like I should step up my shoe game. How adorable are these options I found?

Sand Cloud, the Ingenious Towel

I'm a big fan of supporting up-and-coming ideas and today I'm excited to introduce Sand Cloud! Founded this year by three friends in San Diego, Sand Cloud embodies SoCal's sunny lifestyle with an ingenious towel containing a removable pillow. It's perfect for lounging on the beach! How many times have you wanted to lay out and take a nap but not able to get comfortable? This is your solution. In addition, once you take the pillow out, the towel doubles as an adorable sarong. Don't you just love two-in-ones?

I love this idea. It's the perfect product for a variety of occasions, in addition to the beach. A picnic in the park, an outdoor movie, even for living room exercises - the possibilities are endless. On a recent day off I decided to use mine to lounge by the pool. Talk about relaxing!


Retailing for just under $30 it's comparable to basic travel-type towels that you can buy at Target or Old Navy EXCEPT, there's a cause you support when you buy a Sand Cloud. As beach lovers, the brand is committed to giving back to the ocean and donates 10% of every sale to several foundations dedicated to preserving Marine Life.
Sand Cloud
Worth mentioning: Sand Clouds are hand woven, eco-friendly, lightweight, quick drying, Turkish cotton.

To get things going, there's a Sand Cloud Kickstarter to raise support and grow the company be the successful brand they're destined to be. If you'd like to donate to the goal, you can give whatever amount you'd like. If you give $35 you'll get your own towel. Win-win! I'm wishing them lots of luck. There's already over $2,000! I really believe in their product and charitable mission.

To get your hands on a Sand Cloud, head to the site and order your favorite color today!

My Nordstrom Sale Purchases

I know everyone is posting about the Nordstron sale so I might as well join in. Instead of a wishlist, I'm sharing the actual items I bought. Technically I'm only contracting so I shouldn't be buying anything without a real job, but I couldn't help myself.

Nordstrom Sale



The watch sucked me in. Kate Spade, gold, mother of pearl. Sold! Then the site suggested I may like the initial necklace, also by Kate Spade. Dangit Nordstrom, you got me again. By chance I came across the top and instantly fell in love. Overall, I saved $90. Not too shabby!

If you want to get in on the savings, the Nordstron sale lasts through August 4. My birthday is the next day, so feel free to shop for some gifts for me ;)

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

This weekend I got a little Angels baseball in. Actually a lot. The game went into the 12th inning, when unfortunately Anaheim lost. But it was still a great game! The night before they won in the 16th. I guess I picked the right series to attend.

The Lottery, on Lifetime

Have you heard about the new show The Lottery on Lifetime? I had the chance to catch the premiere episode and am really excited for the story to unfold!

Set in 2025, the world is experiencing a fertility crisis. In 2019 six babies were born, but none after that. Scientists are working feverishly to find a way to create viable embryos, and finally a discovery is made. The drama unfolds as the government takes over and decides to hold a lottery - 100 American women will be randomly chosen to carry them to term.



At the same time there's another story, about a man and his son, one of the last six children born. He lives with the fear of something happening to his child because while the country is protective, people are also equally envious. Without giving anything away, I can say that the pilot episode dives into what this character has to do to keep his son safe.


Watching, you really feel the desperation that the characters are experiencing. And the way that the government decides who will have babies and works to eliminate any "threats" to the embryos is downright scary and infuriating. 

If you like futuristic shows that involve drama, you'll want to check this show out. Lifetime may have a new hit on their hands.

The Lottery premieres this Sunday, July 20, on Lifetime at 10PM ET/PT. Tune in and let me know what you think!
