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 :)

This heat is crazy bats insane, yes?

The kinda hot that – for better or worse – melts away your worries about how you look in a pair of booty shorts!

We at Mable’s take the “what you resists, persists” approach,
and have stripped down to our vintage bikinis
while keeping our glasses of cucumber-spiked spring water full.
Oh, so refreshing.

So take a break from the sweltering temps, and enjoy the cool breeze of another hand-crafted Vintage Fashion Friday!

FieldCandy Space Tent on Super Sale!

tagged , , , and

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

tagged , , , and


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.

Chill Pill: You Need One (and I’ll make them for you!)

tagged , , , , , , , , and

awesome chill pill ice cube tray

Because sometimes, seriously, you should just take a chill pill.

Now I want to suggest something that might sound impossible

This ice cube tray produces actual Chill Pills. Like real, working, effective “calm your crazy self down” chill pills.

How? Simple. The placebo effect.

“Placebo effects can arise not only from a conscious belief in a drug but also from subconscious associations between recovery and the experience of being treated—from the pinch of a shot to a doctor’s white coat. Such subliminal conditioning can control bodily processes of which we are unaware, such as immune responses and the release of hormones.”
“Placebo Effect: A Cure in the Mind.” Scientific American February 2009.

“Ha ha, these ice cubes are cute. Chill pill. I get it. It’s even printed on the pill with the dosage amount just like a real pill…” Unh huh.

Pack your cooler or fill your guests cups with these cubes and 5 minutes later everyone will be maxin’ and relaxin’.

Did these chill pill ice cubes work for you? Tell your story in the comments below!
