It’s The 3 Little Things: Retro Swimwear, Beach-Scented Products, & Free Eyewear



Happy Friday, friends! It’s time for our list of the 3 little things that are making me happy this week!  I hope you guys are enjoying these as much as I enjoy sharing them with you!  Let me know in the comments what is making you happy this week!


Modest Retro Swimwear

Each year our family gets a community pool membership for the summer so, in order to get our money’s worth, we spend a lot of time at the pool. I should rephrase that and say that I spend a lot of time *by* a pool in a shady spot reading my library books. Each year I try to get one modest swimsuit that I can wear and I have had luck finding them at places like Sears & Target. This year I just couldn’t find anything, but I remembered this speech I saw on Rey Swimwear, their company tagline being “who says it has to be itsy-bitsy?”  and decided that I would check there.

Although the pricing is on the higher end for me, I just received this swimsuit that I had ordered and  I am in HEAVEN. It looks like one piece, but the bottom is separate and it is a full bottom so no worries about bits and pieces hanging out that is better left tucked in.  They have beautiful stuff and I will probably order one suit from there each year.

If you have little girls, they are also starting a kids line.


Beachy Cleaning Products

I somehow ended up on a mailing list for Method cleaning products and for the last couple of years I have been enjoying trying out their new stuff as they come out with it.  This month’s shipment was unbelievably awesome.  For their Spring line they launched Lime + Sea Salt Dish Soap, Beach Sage Cleaning Spray, & Sunset Breeze Laundry Detergent.

I hate cleaning up the kitchen at the end of the day, but I hate waking up to a mess of dirty counters and dishes. It actually feels like more of a treat when I use this dish soap and cleaning spray. The Beach Sage, in particular, is heavenly. I still hate cleaning and doing laundry, but at least everything smells beachy while I am doing it.  You also can’t beat that it is priced at around $3  for the soap/cleaners, which is a lot cheaper than a flight to the beach!

Sadly, it’s limited edition so I am going to have to stock up on a few extras before they take it off the shelves. Which makes me wonder why everything I love always limited edition?


Free Glasses

I’m really sorry if you are tired of this picture of me, but you are going to be seeing it every time I can score an interview with an author on here. I kept getting questions about these frames and I just want to tell you that these glasses make me SO happy and they were FREE. It was my first time ordering through Coastal so I was a little nervous that they were going to be cheap and poor quality.

They offer their first pair of glasses to you for free and I picked out these frames after reading through all the reviews and sizing. The frames came and the company included a really nice case and a little eyeglass kit to care for them. I almost never take them off anymore and just had them adjusted at the eye clinic because I wear them so much that I sometimes fall asleep in them.

I can’t rave enough about how much I love these glasses, in fact, my brother ordered a geeky pair himself and now we feel like hipsters with our cold brew coffee, spinning our vinyl, and rocking our free geek frames!

Lastly, if you want to make your kids happy this Friday, show them this video- guaranteed belly laughs for everyone! Bonus mom points, if you show them these cute sloth pictures. My kids loved the sloths that were celebrating their birthdays!
