Southern Tide Summer Fun Giveaway


TGIF! Are you getting ready for a fun weekend, or have you already started your 4th of July holiday week? Of course summer on the Gulf Coast means fun in the sun - and let's face it - the folks at Southern Tide know all about having fun in the sun. Since the brand's inception in 2006, it has become wildly popular. We love it here at the beach because it embodies the lifestyle we are lucky enough to live. (Work, beach, boat, fish, repeat). 


Speaking of the upcoming 4th of July holiday, what essentials are in your beach bag? My perfect beach bag would include all the above items - which would guarantee a fabulous beach day. What's in the bag, you ask?  

1. Ray Ban Wayfarers - I'll be honest, I grew up wearing these glasses and I'm thrilled they are back and more fabulous than ever! 
2. Dior Addict Lip Glow - I love all of Dior's products, especially the Addict fragrance. Recently, I tried the Lip Glow and am now addicted (just as they promised)! 
3. Southern Tide Bottle Sox - with temperatures expected to reach high 90's/low 100's over the next week, this one is a must to keep your favorite beverage cold. Southern Tide says it's "like a cozy sweater for your bottled beverage", is that genius or what?
4. Southern Tide Beach Towel - this is one beach towel your husband or boyfriend will want to "borrow" (be careful, he may not return it! My solution - buy in several colors, ha!)  For the hubby, I'd select the Tidewater or Blue - and for me, the Yellow or Coral. 
5. Amazon Kindle - at this point, I'm pretty sure I'm one of the few remaining people without a Kindle. I'd love to have one for beach days - or to read while at work and taking a lunch break. Maybe then I could jump on the Fifty Shades of Grey bandwagon...I'd really like to read the books but I hate for people at work to see me with a copy of the book (silly, I know!). I could read it covertly with the Kindle.
6. Neon Straw Bag from Charlotte Russe - Is it neon - or is it neutral? Doesn't matter - you have both colors with this bag! Right on trend and perfect for summer, this one is just fun. (and roomy!)
7. Pink Skipjack Hat - let's face it: no one looks attractive with a sunburned face. Skin cancer isn't cool. We need to protect our faces (and our highlights!) and the pink version of this hat will keep you covered and help keep you cool. Also a great hat for my 4 mile treks...
8. Neutrogena Sunscreen - see the above point! I am in love with the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock. It has Helioplex, and I use the SPF 70 version any time I'm outside - beach, boat, running, etc. I'm proud to say: my face hasn't been sunburned at all this year. Quite an accomplishment for me, as my nose is normally fried. 
9. Southern Tide Sunglass Straps - I love to use sunglass straps, mainly because I don't want anything happening to my Costas. Whether you're beachside or poolside, these are a good idea to keep those sunglasses firmly attached. Naturally, my first choice of color would be....pink! 




I am thrilled to announce that my friends at Southern Tide are generously offering a giveaway, exclusively for Shopaholic In Alabama readers!
