The SEEMA team’s curated wishlist for a happy, healthy and outdoorsy summer!
Supergoop! Mineral Mattescreen SPF 40
Summer fun = lots of sun! The more time we spend outdoors in summer, the more I need to take care of my skin! Sunscreen is absolutely essential whenever I step out, and I carry it everywhere in my tote. I’m digging mineral sunscreens over chemical sunscreens these days since I have sensitive skin.
Cooper Cooler Rapid Beverage & Wine Chiller
Need a cold beer ASAP? Guests coming over, but forgot to chill the wine? This quick beverage chiller is just what I need this summer. It cools wine bottles in six minutes, and a can in just a minute, so a chilled soda or white wine is always within reach.
Chamois Butt’r Her’ Her Anti-Chafe
Let’s face it, a summer is meant to be spent in the outdoors, but hiking, biking and running play havoc with our most sensitive areas. This anti-chafing product is just what the doctor ordered. Free from parabens and artificial fragrances, this power-packed product gives instant relief and doesn’t leave a residue.
Cotton dresses from Chidiyaa
Bright dresses with bird motifs, block prints and halter necks are just what you need when you step out to enjoy the weather.
Summer eyewear from Eyebobs
If you wear prescription glasses, add a transient lens to summer eyewear so that it matches your clothing. Get a funky look with these.
Complete any summer ensemble with this straw multicolor hat from SAKS.
Solar Wind Chime
Not just for the day, these magical wind chimes will keep you in a good mood at night, shining in various wonderful colors – red, yellow, green, orange, purple, red and blue. It is the perfect complement for the twinkling stars in the open sky.
This is a must-have for both the young and the old. The Monocular Scope is compact, portable, waterproof and has a convenient hand strap for adults and kids. This is required gear for the outdoors during the summer, where you indulge in birdwatching, hunting, camping, hiking, traveling, or just taking in the scenery.
While summer is the best time for SPF and sunscreen, it’s also a time your skin can get deceptively dry. The best solution is a hydrating moisturizer, preferably one that acts as more of a hydrating gel so it doesn’t make oily skin… well, oilier. Neutrogena has some pretty stand-out options for this. It’s the best solution for ensuring that your skin doesn’t take as much of a beating from the heat as your will power does.
Laptop Lap Desk
While we all prefer to spend hot summer days cooling off indoors, our technology doesn’t react to heat the same way. My laptop has always suffered in the warm weather, working overtime on the fan as it rests on my lap due to a lack of uniform ventilation. A lap desk is the best solution, not only to help provide your machine with a more stable cooling surface, but also to make days at home feel slightly more organized.
