Pinkly’s Perfect for Packing: Spring Break 2017

pinkly.perfect.packing.

My favorite place in the world is Avalon, New Jersey. My second favorite is Southern California. This week, we’re so excited to be heading to Newport Beach to bring Pinkly Perfect to the best coast! While we’ll be taking the entire line for show, I’m personally packing my favorite pieces that are perfect additions to any traveling whether you’re on your way to Spring Break or planning a summer getaway. Below are our recs:

 

Pinkly Perfect Montauk Tote, $26

Perfect for: My carry-on

Shop.Pinkly.Perfect

The fact is I never go anywhere without my Pinkly Perfect Montauk Tote. For this trip, I’ll be bringing my laptop and notebook to do work on the plane (no hours off when you’re a boss!), along with an emergency change of clothes and minimal makeup. You’ll be surprised by how much you can fit in our best-seller!

 

Margate Leggings, $22

Perfect for: Travel outfit

PinklyPerfectMargateLeggings

I will 100% be rocking my Margate Leggings on the plane ride to and from LA. I find sitting on a plane for hours next to strangers to be highly uncomfortable so any little bit of comfort I can add to make the trip more enjoyable is crucial. We love our leggings because they’re mostly cotton so they’re super soft and not too restricting (just in case we really decide to treat ourselves on vacation 🙂 ).

 

Newport Cosmetic Bag, $20

Perfect for: Makeup

PinklyPerfectNewportBagSummerReminders

Pick up a Newport Cosmetic Bag to stash your makeup and girly essentials. It’s so sturdy and it stands on its own, which is perfect for anywhere makeup application. We’ll be bringing our Summer Reminders bag since the pink ice cream cones and flamingos will fit perfectly with the SoCal vibe.

 

 

Cape Cod Pouch, On Sale for $12

Perfect for: Roaming the resort

Cotton.Pink.Pouch

If you’re headed to a resort any time soon, do not forget a small, casual clutch you can use while roaming the premises. If you’re hitting the gym, the spa, or just walking around to get more acquainted, you’ll want something you can toss your room key, cell, and credit cards in just in case. We recommend our Cape Code Pouch, now on sale for $12.

Pink Lip Balms to Avoid Chapped Lips This Winter

younique.bon.bons

There’s definitely some not so terrible things about it not being summer (hello, leggings!) but one thing about the cold weather that we absolutely cannot stand is dry, chapped lips. Not only is it super uncomfortable, but it’s also not at all cute when you apply your perfect pink lip gloss only to be met with disaster cracks.

 

Below we highlighted our favorite tinted lip balms that will add the perfect level of moisture and pretty pink color that allow for selfi-ready lips!

 

Younique Lip Bonbons Tinted Lip Balm, $22

If you’re following the blog, you know that we are obsessed with Younique products. One product that we particularly love these days is their Lip Bonbons. These creamy lip balms are made from fruit extracts and nourishing oils and add a slight shine to your lips. We are loving their Raspberry Cheesecake color (pink!) but for $22, it’s worth picking up their Vanilla Milkshake too for a more natural look as needed.

 

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, $5

Sometimes it’s way worth it to stick to a beauty brand you know works. That’s why when push comes to shove, I often find myself buying Burt’s Bees rather than testing out the “latest and greatest.” Their tinted lip balms provide 8 hours of moisture and come in so many great colors like Pink Blossom, Zinnia, and Rose. These win for most wearable as the color is quite sheer and your lips will definitely be taken care of!

 

Covergirl Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Balm, $7.99

Covergirl uses grapeseed oil, avocado oil, and vitamins C & E in their Oh Sugar! lip balm. They come in 10 scented shades that you can apply solo for a tinted touch or on top of your go-to lipstick for extra moisture and a deeper hue. They’re only $7.99 so worth trying a bunch of different colors to find your perfect match.

Polar Bear Plunges Across the Jersey Shore

history.of.the.polar.bear.plunge

The Polar Bear Plunge, a tradition where people head to their favorite seaside oasis in the winter to jump in freezing cold water, is not something that was ever on my bucket list. However, every year, I am fascinated to see so many people decked out in swimsuits and costumes running into the bitter ocean while I’m happily curled up in leggings and a sweatshirt in my heated NYC apartment. Instead of sitting behind my computer wondering why this seems to be such a popular event, I decided to dive (!) a little deeper into this zany tradition.

 

Turns out the Polar Bear Plunge actually started in Canada in the early 1900s as a way to celebrate the New Year. Now, Polar Bear Plunges are celebrated around the world, including the Netherlands, the UK, and of course the United States, as a way to raise money for charitable causes. Below are some Jersey shore versions of the Polar Bear Plunge and what causes they support.

 

Sea Isle City, NJ:

Sea Isle City, NJ is celebrating their 2017 Polar Bear Weekend from February 17th until February 19th. Included in the weekend is a costume contest followed by the plunge followed by a post-plunge party. There’s also a 5K run and fun walk supporting Autism, plus a cornhole tournament.

 

The Wildwoods, NJ:

The Wildwoods hosted their annual Polar Bear Plunge on January 14th and raised over $390,000 to benefit Special Olympics New Jersey. There were 1,118 brave plungers who were required to raise at least $100 in pledges while donations were accepted onsite.

 

Long Beach Island, NJ:

LBI hosted their Super Plunge on February 5th with a “warm-up party” after including free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. All proceeds went to benefit the St. Francis Community Center, which offers programs and services meeting the needs of residents of Ocean County, and Southern Regional High School Swim Teams.

 

Asbury Park, NJ:

Asbury Park celebrates their Sons of Ireland plunge every New Year’s Day with roughly 1,000 participants and 3,000 spectators. Every year, the organization selects a different beneficiary to receive the money raised. This year, Shore House, an organization that aids adults with mental illness, and Stephy’s Place, a support center for people facing loss, were the recipients of the donations.
