Sandcastles Galore!!

Any fun beach ideas? Swimming in the beach. Mhmm sounds good. Tanning. Hmm. Collecting shells. Ooo. Building Sand Castles?! O.M.G.!

While looking through our awesome Pinterest site, we came across a sand castle and decided, “Why not search and look for more followers who created their own sand castles!?” We discovered so many sand castles that were created by young children, adults, to professionals. All we can say is, “WOW!” At Babesta, we love summer and everything that makes summer fun– from BBQs to pool days, to Water parks to Lemonades. We can see that making sand castles are definitely a fun way to spend your time at the beach!! We created a fun slideshow filled with sandcastles that were posted by some of our social media websites’ members!

 

Next time you visit the beach, be sure to bring your shovel and pails, your awesome beachwear, your sunglasses, sunblock, and your creativities! Game on, show us your handiwork!!

Rockin’ Flip Flops DIY

We decided to jump on the DIY wagon (partially inspired by last week’s Etsy party) and we grabbed some old tees that had been damaged and decided to fashion ourselves a new pair of rockin’ summer flip flops. This is an easy one that any kid who can handle a pair of scissors can do. . .

1. Gather some of your old, too small, favorite rock tees

2. Cut it up into strips & tie the strips around the flip flops, making it dense & fluffy.

3. You have the perfect pedicure flops. Black polish please!

Just a Peek: Babesta Fall Fashion 2013 Photoshoot

We spent Memorial Day weekend in the Berkshires, shooting an editorial style “story” for Babesta in the woods. (You can take the girl out of the city…) We rented a U-haul and brought up cribs, strollers, Fall 2013 fashions and more! There was definitely a point in time that I thought I had totally lost it (light rain, wind & back-breaking set building) – but the result will be beautiful, thanks to an amazing team, including photographer Katrina Tang & stylist Michel Onofrio! Stay tuned. Here’s a little behind the scenes peek! (who’s behind that big, big book!?)
