Poolside Totes

Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.45.10 PMWith snow still on the ground in the Northeast, I am dreaming of a warm weather escape. And, many of you will be taking a Spring Break in the weeks and months to come. Getting your beach wardrobe together is part of the fun and a cute beach/pool bag is something that can make your lounging all the more fun.

These beach bags by Poolside are clever and cheeky and super chic! They have a collection of phrases that you can select from or you can do something completely custom. Especially cute for a warm weather honeymoon, bachelorette party, destination wedding or birthday celebration.

I don’t know about you, but I dread trying on swimsuits…so, I relish selecting something from the comfort of my favorite chiar.Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.45.49 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.46.23 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.46.44 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.48.27 PMScreen Shot 2017-02-15 at 2.47.06 PMThese bags may not be my first “beach tote rodeo”, but they sure are fun…..and that’s what you want to have in the sun!


In The Bag

Yesterday, I had the most interesting conversation, over lunch, with my 12 year old son. He’s pretty good with computers and wanted to talk about my blog. He had a number of suggestions, one of which was to follow a schedule. I try. I swear I do. But, I like to have flexibility, so guess when I write my posts. Usually, the night before. There. You have me. I’m a procrastinator. 
That said…I kind of liked the idea of giving you a little more structure if you are a regular reader. Here’s what I’m thinking.
Mondays will be about “living“. 
Wednesdays…something about “giving“. To give or something I can give to you. 
Fridays will be “entertaining“. 
Since today is Wednesday, that means giving. A twist on an old favorite. I love bags. I love customization. Now, before you think you’ve already seen this one…..there’s a fun little twist near the bottom.
These are all designs by Iomoi! As a company, they have continued to evolve and I admire that. Check out all of the different designs they can do for you. Printed on one side or two.

Now, here’s the twist! I love this. You can have a special message inscribed on the INSIDE of the bag!!!! From an inspirational quote for the grad, to thanking the bridesmaids… to congratulating the new mom, to toasting your best friend or honoring a favorite teacher. You’ll have this gift in the bag.

And, since I will always look for ways to give back to you….if you order anything over $150 at Iomoi between now and July 11th, use code pickmeup, for 20% off.

I’d also love your feedback. What you like to see, what you want more of, what you want to see less of (that makes me a little nervous, but I’m keeping it real). And, yes, that was also my son’s suggestion. 

Maybe I should hire him. He thinks so!
