Sara Swag Bag Pool

Straw Beach Tote – This handy tote by Apolis is definitely a beach staple.  It was handcrafted by an artisan women’s co-op in Bangladesh.

Sun Hat – Your skin’s best friend.

SOLO Shades – I always have a pair of sunglasses on hand, and these hand painted SOLO frames are my new favorite. This recent Leg Up winner makes frames from recycled bamboo and uses a portion of each purchase to fund eye care for people in need – so cool.

Surf Spray – I count on Bumble & Bumble for instant beach hair.

Antioxidant Daily Protectant Sunscreen – SPF 33 – I wear Jan Marini sunscreen everyday – I love its lightweight feel!

Bronzer – Growing up, I spent hours in the sun trying to get tan- much to my skin’s dismay.  Now I count on Guerlain bronzer to give me that sun-kissed look.

Switch Flops – These flip-flops were designed by Leg Up winner, Lindsay Phillips.  They come with interchangeable snaps so you can switch up your look…brilliant!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – A chapstick with SPF is a must!

Healthy Snack – An easy on-the-go snack with only two ingredients? That’s it!

Kid-Safe Sunscreen-SPF 30 –  This California Baby sunscreen is totally kid-safe.  I always have it on hand.

Spanx Bold Blouson One Piece- This Spanx suit is perfect for laying out or chasing your kids on the beach!

Giving the Gift of Leg Up!

red_plaid_duoThe latest Leg Up winner has your holidays wrapped up! On November 13, Sara announced that the newest featured entrepreneur would be Ashley Edmonds, founder of lilywrap, an easy-to-use gift wrap alternative that saves time…and trees!

These reusable wrappings mimic the look and feel of traditional wrapping paper—bow and all—and are available in a variety of colors and patterns. A patent-pending stretchy fabric wrap is offered in three sizes, so no matter the gift shape, your present is covered.

“I love giving gifts, but can’t stand wrapping them,” Sara said. “My friends and family laugh at my ‘creative’ gift wrapping. Thanks to lilywrap, I don’t have to worry about the wrapping! And because they’re reusable, it’s like giving a gift, inside a gift.”
