If you kick sand on my towel one more time…

sandless towel means beach fun

There you are, on a gorgeous sunny day, just trying to relax and soak up some rays… when sand starts itching it’s way onto your towel. Kids and dogs running by, or just moving around to get comfortable seems to add more sand into the mix.

I guess you just have to deal with it, right?

Nope! The military’s got you covered. Kind of.

sandless towel for awesome beach fun

This technological marvel called the Sandless Beach Mat was indeed developed by the military for landing a chopper and not blowing sand every which way. Now you can use this technology to spend an awesome day at the beach, connecting with nature, while staying comfy, too.

This sandless towel also eliminates dirt, dust, and water from its surface, so you have a perpetually clean outdoor space. Perfect for camping or watching outdoor concerts.

What, you need features? Well, it’s also strong enough to resist abrasions from outdoor furniture or pets, the towel will remain flat, and it never absorbs moisture, so it can’t grow mold or mildew.

So get out there and enjoy the rest of the summer – and all your other outdoor activities – with a sand-free smile :)

FieldCandy Space Tent on Super Sale!

fieldcandy

So Carl Jung was all about watching for synchronicity. Ya know, meaningful coincidences.

Just this morning I saw Thee Cutest tent in all of existence while skimming through tumblr.

“A tent that looks like outer space? Stop everything, I know what my summer needs!” My brain was already busy creating scenarios to prove that I did in fact need this piece of stunning camping gear.

A few hours later I got an email letting featuring The Tent of Spacey Beauty… ON SALE! Commence happy dance!

Think Geek has deliciously discounted this spacious tent as part of their super summer sale. In their words that “means it’s time to SLASH PRICES IN THE FACE!” Oh, that does have a ring to it.

What do you think of FieldCandy’s take on the classic tent? Do they inspire you to get outside and make some spacey fun?

Water Trampolines



12-Foot Water Trampoline!
Having your very own trampoline in your front or backyard guarantees that you are one of the cool kids on the block. Surround that trampoline with a lake, and suddenly you’re a baller.

This epic water trampoline is also Guaranteed for Life! So if you and your friends get a little crazy and pop it, you get a replacement. Awesome.

The entire trampoline’s diameter is 12 feet, but the durable nylon jumping surface is a safe 6 feet in diameter. The trampoline is made of the same heavy duty materials used in life rafts and tow-ables and includes a detachable ladder and anchor.

Throw n’ Grow Guerrilla Gardening Seed Bombs

easy flower seed bomb
Have you ever noticed a weed growing in the sidewalk? The defiant way it springs up, surrounded by cement? Now that’s the original guerrilla gardening.

Wildflowers are notorious for “blooming where they’re planted”. Seed bombs take that idea and crank it to 11. They transform any gray urban landscape into a slice of reclaimed green space.

They come in 6 growing regions for the US; west coast, midwest, east coast, pacific northwest, southwest and southeast. Just pick the right region, throw, and your gardening is done.

Seed bombs are awesome for both gardening enthusiasts and anyone who can throw! Even kids can chuck these over a fence and watch the magic happen. Chuck a seed bomb in spring, summer, or early fall, and see what blooms.

Inflatable Portable Hot Tub



Inflatable Portable Hot Tub
“You bring the drinks, and I’ll bring the hot tub,” is the start of a beautiful night ;) Knowing you have a Lifetime Guarantee makes it all the sweeter.

This portable hot tub will inflate in ten minutes with the included motor and will filter your 250 gallons of heated water with the included pump system. Heat is controlled by a built in control panel so you don’t even have to get out of the spa to adjust it. You and three of your friends can relax comfortably on the cushioned walls and soothe those tired muscles with the heated jet action that’s comparable to permanently installed hot tubs. It’s also constructed of the same epic vinyl found in white water rafts that are meant to prevent punctures and tears in rough rocky rivers.

All you need is a hose and a space big enough to fit an 82 inch hot tub o’ fun, and you are stylin’ in no time. It’s getting to be that time of year when it gets cold at night, and I think a nice dip in this heated hot tub would be the hit of any party or just a great end to any day.

Men’s Sun Glasses by Dragon


dragon-sun-glasses.jpg
Sean and I were talking about what style of sunglasses he would be sporting this summer, but the thought of retiring his good old aviators didn’t appeal to him much. However, we did end up talking about styles and brands of men’s sunglasses that are most popular in California. Many areas have their own “local heroes”, and San Diego is no exception. While Oakleys (based out of Orange County) are always a favorite, you can’t leave the house without seeing a score of men wearing Dragon sunglasses. dragon-sunglasses.jpgTruck stickers with the Dragon logo are also really popular. As it turns out, Dragon is a San Diego County (Carlsbad) based company, which explains the hometown love that the brand enjoys here. Their styles are largely designed for the sports enthusiast, so you’ll find incredibly sturdy frames that block 100% of all harmful UV and Blue Light. Wrap-around sunglasses frames are also one of their hallmarks, as are the occasional fashion forward style. There is a new 2007 model called “GG”, which is straight up 1980′s nerd style: thick two-toned coffee and bronze frames, perfect for rocking the blazer, t-shirt, and Vans look. To cater to a wider audience, they also offer more subdued, metal frame sunglasses styles. (You can see GG shown at top left, in black.)

If you’re looking for a pair of men’s Dragon sunglasses, eBay has an awesome selection. Even better, I’ve been watching auctions and you can definitely get a new pair for well below retail. Oh, the magic of eBay.

Happy Summer: get outside and stay cool

first day of summer. yah!
Can you believe it? Summer Solstice is finally here! Today is the longest day of the year (in terms of hours of sunlight, which we find to be a great gauge for awesomeness), and the official start of the summer season.
