Summer Essentials in Hartford

This is a sponsored post.

Summer is right around the corner, and it is time to stock up on all the essentials you need to make this season a hit. Here are a few of my favorite items that ensure I’m prepared for this slow paced yet busy season!

WAYB – Bag Collection (The Daily Pack, Mini Pack, The Crossbody Kit, Pods, Essentials Kit)

If you are always on the go with kids in tow, WAYB has the bag collection to keep you organized and ready. I love that their style is evergreen, items are lightweight, and they all work together to keep it together! Grab a pack- The Daily or Mini- and complete your set with their pods or essentials kit. Everything is designed to work together.


Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller

Mosquitos are gross. Plain and simple. And some people seem to attract them more than others- my daughter in particular. Each summer, she gets bit and spends the rest of the summer battling the results, sometimes having the bites turn into sores. This results in not being able to apply bug spray to her skin. I love that Thermacell’s E55 repels mosquitos in the air, NOT on the skin. Grab it for $29.99 until July 31st!

Funfetti Ice Cream Cakes

I have loved Funfetti ice cream since I can remember, and choose it at the ice cream store to this day. Big news for anyone with similar tastes: I Love Ice Cream Cakes has now come out with Funfetti Ice Cream Cake. The Funfetti cake is made with birthday cake-flavored vanilla ice cream, real Funfetti cake, whipped icing and lots of sprinkles. And Carvel makes a variety of delicious ice cream cakes you can try, like Strawberry or Chocolate Crunchie Cakes and Cookie Dough. Ice Cream Cakes like these make any day a fun summer celebration!

Wonderful Pistachios

My kids head to summer camp every day, and I struggle to find snacks for them that will keep them energized during their active days. Wonderful Pistachios makes my job easy by introducing 7 different flavors in their No Shells variety, including Honey Roasted. The 2.25 oz. bags are the perfect size to drop in a lunch box, and much healthier than a bag of chips.
