    1.  Bogg Bag - huge bag that holds everything!

    2.  SwimZip Swimwear - UV protective swimwear

    3.  Salt Water Sandals - cute comfortable sandals

    4.  Spbang Snack Bag - a yummy stack - I like apple slices, to keep more water in the boys so they don't get dehydrated

    5.  Hello Beach Bag - a place to collect all their sand treasures

    6. Sand Gone - best, fastest, easiest way to get sand off my boys.

    7.  A water bottle

    8.  Sun Screen

    Hope you have a blast at the beach!



    How to stay safe from sun burns - SwimZip

    Having a blast at the beach means NO MORE SUNBURNS.  Sunburns hurt the day you get them, can hurt for a few days after, and did you know just a few bad sunburns can lead to skin cancer??

    After being diagnosed with skin cancer at 26, I started SwimZip! I wanted to be sure I could keep my boys sun safe... and fashionable!  Here is an adorable SwimZip called Hamptons Getaway in Green!

     So, SwimZip was born.  It is for all kids, all women, all men, it is for everyone every age, race, color ... everyone.  "Anyone can get skin cancer. Skin cancer does not care what color your skin is, what political affiliation you have, what religion you are,” said Dr. Adam Friedman of Montefiore Medical Center in New York.

    So, here is one of my favorite outfits for my boys when we are heading to the beach to just play in the sand.  How do you dress your kids when you're heading to the beach?

    We love this I Like Naps Romper and Apple Cheeks Swim Diaper!  Green Day at the beach.



    Toddler Rash Guard

    When shopping for toddlers it is so important to find something they want to wear.  Rash guards can be extremely 'sticky' when went and extremely hard to get off.

    So - we created SwimZip - Rash Guards that come off with one quick zip.  You might be worried if the zipper would bug them, but don't you worry - I'm a mom of 2 boys and I thought the same thing - so I created a zipper flap that lays flat and protects their precious skin from getting rubbed with our zipper.  

    Kids even feel so comfortable it could be their PJs and head to the beach straight from waking up - and have donuts on the beach.  Okay, maybe that is a little far, my son still loves his footed PJs, but I might be able to convince him to wear his SwimZip.


    Kids enjoy playing in the sand with our longer length shirts, so there is no extra sun exposure on their backs.  We offer rash guards and rash guard sets for both boys and girls!
