Summer Birthdays!

Okay, in this post I am going to give you a fabulous idea in what to give to your BFF for her Summer birthday. And I have such a cute idea: a bag stuffed with goodies. Get a raffia or straw beach tote (designer or not) and put in first, a beach-worthy album or scrapbook filled with pictures of your friend with her family and friends (including you of course). The pics could even be specialized in one event like a beach party or barbecue. Next, put in some bedazzled flip-flops, good for the sandy beaches or the Copacabana (I feel Barry Manilow-y today). You should then stuff in either a self-tanner or SPF (or both) and floppy hat for the beach. If you really want to make her happy, put in either a bikini, cover-up, or some big oversized Jackie O's. Here are two examples of this present, on a Costly or Cheapy budget:
Here is the album you should use for both budgets:
This PBteen pandan photo album is at a great price for $29, and could not be more perfect for the occassion, or the present. The material of the album makes it so beach-y and even matches with the bag!

COSTLY

This Tory Burch tote is just as boho-chic as it is modern and is hefty enough to supply all of the goodies. The turquoise really brings out the neutral color, and is perfect for the new beach trend: matching your bags with your bikinis. It's the beaded logo basket for $425.

These embellished brocade thongs are so cute and since it is a gift, will look cool wrapped up with the bag, because they're the same blue color. The orange beading really brings out the blue, not to mention the Southwestern style creating a buzz. Manolo Blahnik, $630.

This Clinique body quick bronze tinted self-tanner mousse is really great (I've tried it) because it leaves even coats on account of the mousse texture. Also, it doesn't leave an orange freaky glow, but a dark "I just came from the Bahamas" tan. It is $17.50.

This Kiehls Since 1851 face and body lotion conditions, hydrates, and most importantly protects having SPF 40. It also was named"Best Sunscreen" in Self magazine's "2004 Healthy Beauty Awards". It costs $18.50.

This Chantelle straw hat is a bit pricey at $228, but look at how beautiful it is! Anyone would look gorgeous with this hat on at the beach with some Dior sunglasses, cute cover-up...fabulous!

This simplistic but gorgeous Moschino bandeau bikini flatters mostly all body types. It also has straps that you can wear in different ways. It costs $195 at N-M.

This Milly tunic dress is to die for, having the trendy brocade, but still maintaining simplicity and elegance. The tonal gold and turquoise pattern really is gorgeous, it costs $197 on SALE at N-M.

These Salvatore Ferragamo shades will truly bring out the Jackie O in you but with a modern touch. The side detail like the embellishments make them one-of-a-kind. Plastic dot sunglasses, $310; N-M.

CHEAPY


The flower detailing on this embroidered large raffia tote makes it oh-so-feminine but it is still very functional. The raffia and all really makes it perfect for the gift, and the price is even better at $68, Gap.

These Gap metallic rope sandals are for one, absolutely gorgeous, and two: the price is amazing! $19.50!!! The gold roping and all makes it look 4 times the price!!

This Bain de Soleil mega tan sunscreen lotion with self tanner is so innovative because it is two-in-one! The price is awesome at $6.99 at your local drugstore.

This hat has gorgeous detailing and protects you from the sun. It's cowboy but not over the top which is great.Gap open straw hat in natural, $24.50.

This Gap solid key hole one piece is natural and simple in java brown but still very sexy. It is $29.50.

I love this Gap banded dress because the pink color will contrast great with all the neutrals I put in. Not to mention your soon to be tan skin. $29.50, Gap.

These Old Navy women's embellished oversized sunglasses in black are well worth the price at $9.50. They are very Jackie O like the costly ones and are truly chic and expensive looking.


LUV ya,
BYE!!
