Today on the blog I’m sharing some of my summer essentials for myself and the boys!

I recently purchased two tops that I love from Target. They are the perfect shirt for summer in the shop - cool and breezy and a good price!

Women's Plaid Short Sleeve Collared Button-Front Shirt - Universal Thread™ Red

Recently, I bought a pepper plant from the Magnolia Line at Target! It’s the perfect addition to any room in the house! 

Faux Pepper Plant - Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia

The boys LOVE this new 2-1 shampoo / body wash that I got them! It’s toxin free (which makes me happy!) and, tear free and smells great! Plus, it’s called Fresh Monster! What little boy doesn’t love that?!

Fresh Monster Shampoo & Body Wash Ocean Splash

I’m a bath girl, I LOVE soaking in the tub! These 24 bath bombs from Amazon have 6 different scents. They are organic and natural and I bet that you’ll love them as much as I do! The boys are just as excited about them as I am AND they keep our skin extra soft!

 

This is my favorite laundry detergent! The garden - fresh scent isn’t too strong and I love that it’s a plant based solution.

The boys are out in the sunshine everyday, almost all day! This sunscreen is great for the boys - the best part is - it’s water resistant and is easy to apply.
