5 Summer Must-Haves! The Domestic Dandy List!

5 Summer Must-Haves! The Domestic Dandy List!
As we head off for the Memorial Day holiday and the beginning of summer, I wanted to share with you the top 5 must-have items on the Domestic Dandy's list for summer fun!

1. A nice tan! 
As the sun can be way too damaging to our skin, I use Jergen's Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer to attain a nice subtle tan. It's also a wonderful body moisturizer and dries quickly so you can dress immediately after applying!

2. A Fun Beach Read!
Whether you are looking for a trashy or serious novel, one always needs to carry a book to the beach. Not only does it keep one's mind occupied, but it also comes in handy when sneaking furtive glances at your neighbor!

For the history buff I recommend "London" and "New York" by Edward Rutherfurd for some fun reading on the history of these two great cities

If you're looking for a book that is not going to last you until next summer, try reading "Trading Up" by Candace Bushnell. It's a fun fast-paced read about the glamorous, yet petulant life of the New York Glamorati. 

And for the mystery fan, I recommend "Angelology" by Danielle Trussoni. An exciting read involving the offspring of Angels and mortal woman. 

3. A Great Beach Towel
Any trip to the beach is not complete without a nice beach towel. Find one that speaks to your personality! I posted before about the zip-zac gym towel. It also comes in a beach towel! Perfect to store your wallet and mp3 player to keep the sand away.

4. Your MP3 Player Filled with Your Newest Playlist!
