Summer Must-Haves

Karyn from St. Louis Park, mom of Lulu, 6, gives us a peek at her…

Favorite Essentials!

I love having what I need and then some at my fingertips!

Skinny Dipped Almonds

These are a great snack while out and about, especially when I notice the hangry face ready to appear. Nuts and chocolate, what could be better?

Jade Facial Roller

I keep one in my bag and have one at home. Roll that tension away while at the beach or water park. Keep it with an ice pack for a quick refresh.

Water Bottle

I carry a water bottle with me at all times; especially in the summer – hydration is a must.


I always have one on hand for labeling water toys or my daughter’s hands for a game of twister!

sharpen essential oil

This minty and citrus scent helps me stay on-task whether at work or at home.

wet wipes

What mother doesn’t carry these in her purse? You never know when you or someone else will need one.

GIN Gins

These are great to have around for that unsettled stomach or even if you just need a bit of sweet.

Rosie Jane Cheek and Lip Gloss

I love to rub a little color on my cheeks and lips every morning and then a freshen-up in the middle of the day. This gloss is the perfect amount of color without all the shimmer.

Smith’s Rosebud Lip Balm

This lip balm has been a favorite of mine for years! It keeps my lips smooth and kissable.

Wireless EarBuds

I use these at the gym, on my walks, and on the plane. Cordless is the way to go.
