South Beach 

South Beac Tent

Please watch the setup video available to view from the Lovin’ Summer website’s main page.

Unlike any other beach shade products on the market today, we designed our Lovin’ Summer beach tents to put an end to uncomfortable shade protection, without the complicated knots and instructions like the majority of freestanding or “pop-up” beach tents available today.

Driven by our passion for the beach, our beach shade products have combined coastal style with practical design to create a simple innovative product that looks great, offers maximum light, airflow and UV protection.

sungrubbies has a huge website offering sun protection items for the entire family

UV Travel Umbrella

This UV blocking sun umbrella is great because you always have instant shade with you wherever you go! Fits perfectly in a purse or in the glove compartment of a car. And, best of all, the versatile Sun Travel Umbrella keeps you cool under the sun and dry when it rains.

A cute and compact sun umbrella. It’s a great sun block that keeps you cooler, or dryer if need be. A great travel companion for wherever umbrellas are allowed. Yes, I know if’s officially fall, but maybe we can hold on to summer a little longer. (think like a balloonist – only use your  UV umbrella in winds less than 10 knots)

auto open and close. better UV protection than a regular rain umbrella.

sturdy but lightweight. compact. smart. fun:)

Planet Wise

Their mission?

To reduce our environmental impact, all products have been thoroughly researched and are all PVC-free and lead-free (a surprising fact is that many zippers have been painted using paint that contains lead). All the products we have developed are reusable and have been designed to replace disposable items; helping to reduce waste that ends up in the landfills. Planet Wise Wet Bags™ have been designed to be useful for every age from young children, in diapers, to the mature adult transporting shoes, cosmetics, swimwear, or gym wear. Also, our packaging is printed on recycled/recyclable paper using soy-based ink.

My review

The Planet Wise Wipe Pouch is designed for hand wipes. It can be used for numerous other things too & I’d recommend it only for the other things. When using it with wipes, I found that the the outside of the bag felt very damp while the wipes inside started to dry out.

The Wipe Pouch misses the mark when aiming to keep wipes. But when used as a stylish reusable option for storing say, markers or small bottles of shampoo/lotion, I think it would be great☮

We design and manufacture the newest line of unique eyeglass holders that do away with chains, pins, and bling. Our eyeglass holder has an absolute minimum of parts, and is very small. Invented to solve a long term problem – what to do with your glasses.

My review: The Eye Loop did the job of holding readers and sunglasses. (Also works for badges) Like the simple look. Like that it doesn’t harm clothing. This review was tested at home by me, “in the air” by my airline pilot reviewer, and a third magnetic holder was given away locally.

There are currently three styles to buy at an affordable price of ten dollars. (shipping is 3.00 or free with purchase of two holders)

The Eye Loop was featured in the Feb issue of Real Simple Magazine.

CallaCreative

The Calla Pillow

The Calla Pillow is the World’s Best Washable Pillow, covered in soft organic cotton, made by parents for kids.

And now they offer pillowcases!

The Calla Pillowcase is unbleached and undyed and 100% chemical free. And it fits the perfect little Calla pillows.

Refresher: The Calla pillow is washable, organic, contains no flame retardant chemicals, hypoallergenic, appropriately sized for children, and comes with a 3 year guarantee.

While designed for children ages 2-5, the Calla pillow is great for anyone. (little guy’s pillow sometimes finds its way to my room) I find that it offers a comfortable support ( 3″) and measures 13 x 18.

Also new on their website is “Lovely Lavender Oil”. Containing Organic Lavender Essential Oil from Bulgaria and Coconut Oil, it is pre-diluted and comes with a dropper top so it’s ready to use. A few drops and gently massage. A “calming” essential oil, Lavender is one of the best for toddlers and their families.

Visit their website and remember to use discount code CCPILLOW for 10% off your order today!

Notes From Dawn received a Calla Pillow from CallaCreative last year and it is still the best little pillow ever! A Calla pillowcase and Lovely Lavender Oil was received in exchange for this review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
