Sand Cloud apparel – review

I support small business and start ups, they all have the potential to be great and it is always exciting to be there when they are new. One of the companies that reached out to me is called the Sand Cloud Apparel. The company is located and founded in sunny San Diego, CA. The founders Brandon and Steven decided the world needed a better product for laying on the beach. Their backpacks used as pillow is not cutting it anymore and that’s how Sand Cloud Beach towel is born.


The Sand Cloud beach towel has a built in pillow that makes lounging more comfortable and if you take the pillow it can be also use as a sarong. Since its inception it was being marketed as a beach towel but really it can be used everywhere. I especially love using it when the family and I go to the park and recently took it with me to San Diego when we slept over a cousins house and used it to lay on the floor. While this is made from 100% (and handmade) Turkish cotton which makes it extremely absorbent and it will last a long time I love my beach towels fluffy so I will mostly use this as a lounging towel and use my regular beach towel.

The perfect summer purses

Purses are very crucial in accessorizing, I rarely see a female sans handbag draped in her arm. It is just not possible, the stuff in our bags or as the male species would call it “junk” have to be placed somewhere else right? Our environment is demanding we use less plastic in these generation, so most grocery shopper either have a recycled non-woven tote bag in their midst. Mothers like me, either carry a baby bag or an oversized tote to haul all the stuff for our babies, but now that he is 2 years old, I can actually pack light with the use of a medium size crossbody bag. Club goers op for the cutest clutches, working woman either gets a tote bag, brief case or any top handle that would look professional yet still incredibly stylish. Said handbag suggestions also comes in different colors, occasions, etc. Like the different styles, every season, the female population also match everything we wear with the season. You can’t wear long sleeves or jacket in the summer that would be insane, well it goes that same with bags, sure not to much but still… Anyway, this leads to my original subject, “The Perfect Summer purses” I think most of us can agree that bright colors and pastels are it or prints / patterns that screams summer! He are different summer perfect purses for every style, what’s best about it is it won’t break the bank. (click the images to but the bag)
