This week, Andrew and I have been in St. Augustine, Florida with the boys. It has been so fun to see a new spot and to just get away from the cold for a little bit! Plus, we have not been away on vacation since November 2019! 
Since I’m at the beach, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite beachy items we currently have available on the online store + a few things I love to have with me when I go to the beach! 

 

I love these two new dresses that we got in for spring / summer! They are so nice to just throw on when it's warmer outside or even over a swim suit! Shop the light blue one and navy here!
There's always a need for a tiny toiletry bag or pouch when traveling. I love both of these- the silicone one is fun and bright, while the clear ones help me see that I remembered to pack everything without digging through the pouch! 
Of course, I've packed my pouches FULL of items from the Bath & Body section! Including my favorite lotion from Farmhouse Fresh, called Whoopie Cream. We're currently out of that one but we do have another one I love called Sweet Tea Shea Butter in stock that is amazing
This Shea Butter whip is a jarful of refreshment! You'll be tempted to sip this creamy, supple shea butter that calms even the severest of dry skin. Scented like a southern sweet tea with peach, ginger, and white tea - a light herbal treat!
We can never be at the beach without sunscreen, with our fair skin! I packed the ThinkBaby sunscreen that has been great! BONUS! It's on sale over on the website here.
Of course, lip balm! I usually forget to pack this on vacation, but was so glad I remembered to throw it in my bag! Shop our favorite Green Daffodil Lip Balm Here! It has SPF in it too!
Wax-free soy lip balms include vitamin E and SPF 15, which penetrates into your skin for extra care and long lasting protection to ward off dry lips. Use only essential or flavor oils to scent our lip balm, so they are safe. A unique oval shape tube to keep your lip balm from rolling off your desk or night stand and they also fit nicely into your pocket.

Never forget to pack a hat! Especially one that represents our favorite spot! Shop my favorite Mackinac hat here! 
Finally, guess what I packed in? 
My new favorite tote! I'm so excited about this burlap bag. It's been perfect for the beach! You can shop for it here!
This week at the beach has been so much fun! I hope you've been following along in my Instagram stories as I've shared a little what we're up to! If you have a beach vacation coming up soon, enjoy shopping this list as you start to pack!

Nicole

Post Season Vacation

What a season! Through lots of ups and downs this past season, I am happy it's 'family time' and time to prep for 2018. This coming year, we will be celebrating our tenth year of business! This is SO hard to believe! The last nine years have seriously been a whirlwind and a dream come true.  I cannot thank all of YOU for your continued support and friendship over the years.  To celebrate our 10th anniversary stay tuned for some fun new stuff for 2018!
We are now three weeks into our 'post season'. My husband, Andrew and I took the boys to San Diego, CA for some family fun. What an amazing trip we had! San Diego is a great place for families. The boys were troopers and happy campers the entire week. We visited Lego Land, San Diego Zoo, Children's Pool (where you can see sea lions in a natural habitat), beaches, parks, the USS Midway Museum, Balboa Park, and more!
The vibe in San Diego was awesome. Watching surfers daily, cute shops and amazing restaurants, friendly people - I would go back in a heart beat! Our week long stay in San Diego was definitely much needed and San Diego was good to us!! Enjoy some of our photos from the vacation and look for more on our Instagram: littleluxuriesofmackinac
