With sales already made in 19 different states across the country, Pinkly Perfect is growing now more than ever – which means you probably see other pink-loving fashionistas at the beach every weekend without knowing it. (So sad!) Fortunately for you, we created an easy 5-step guide to help find other Pinkly Perfect girls no matter what state you’re in!

 

1) She never goes anywhere without her trusty tote!

Any Pinkly Perfect girl knows that a carry-all tote bag is an absolute must. It holds her favorite beach-day essentials in the summer and is a perfect grab-and-go closet must have in the winter. As we’ve always said, half the world’s problems could be solved if only we had something to carry them in! (Also, it’s the perf accessory that goes with literally any outfit. Need we say more?)

 

2) Her beach bag is flawlessly organized.

A Pinkly Perfect girl gets it: Your beach bag holds everything you need for a perfect vacay day. Phone, coffee money, sunglasses, sunscreen, beach reads, games, flip flops – and that’s only the start! Naturally, then, her beach bag can be kind of messy. That’s why she always carries a pouch with her for the small stuff… And the glitter is just an extra bonus!

 

3) She knows who run the world: Girls!

Pinkly Perfect girls always go after what they want, whether that’s a frappuccino with extra whipped cream or their own fashion line with worldwide press. They are firm believers in girl power and like to share their wisdom with everyone they meet, and what better way to do that than with style?

 

4) Summer is her favorite season.

This one goes without saying, but a Pinkly Perfect girl’s favorite season starts with June and ends with August! While it may not be warm and sunny 365 days a year, a Pinkly Perfect girl is always in a summer state of mind and never stops looking on the bright side. Summer vibes only!

 

5) There’s a lot of beaches in the world, but only one beach is her beach!

No two beaches are alike, something every Pinkly Perfect girl knows goes without saying. Whether she goes to Avalon, Cape May, or Ocean City, her beach is her happy place, and she’s at her best when she’s by the sea. She carries a little piece of the shore with her wherever she goes, and she’s already planning next year’s Memorial Day trip before Labor Day is over! (She does, however, hide her white shoes just in time.)

Best Beaches with Pink Sand

pinkly.perfect.pink.sand.beaches

Ever scroll through your Instagram feed and see the most magical beach with pink sand and perfect bright aqua waves? While we love our East Coast beaches and argue that even though the water may be slightly brown and the sand a bit grainy, there’s nothing that can compare to the beach we grew up vacationing in, we can’t help but daydream about what it would be like to lay out on pink sand and sip a pink mocktail with our besties.

 

Below we listed some famous beaches with pink sand and dive a bit deeper into what exactly makes the sand our favorite color. Check it out and get ready to book a trip to somewhere tropical!

 

Elbow Beach, Bermuda

The beaches of Bermuda are widely known for their crystal clear ocean water, but did you also know that their sand is a pale pink color? Elbow Beach, named because its shape is similar to the curve of an elbow, is a mile long beach that has pink sand and calm waves, perfect for swimming and working on that perfect tan.

 

Harbour Island, Bahamas

Pink sand made up of pieces of coral, calcium carbonate, broken shells, and minute rocks covers about three miles of the beautiful beaches of Harbour Island, Bahamas. Harbour Island is also home to one of the top dive sites in the world. Plan your trip to Harbour Island here!

 

Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece

(picture shown above)

Elafonisi, a tiny island in Greece, has pink sand as a result of tiny oysters named Foraminifera, who have red shells that are crushed in the sand to produce a pretty pink hue. Tourist season is July and August so book a last-minute getaway to see it in person!

 

Playa de Ses Illetes, Formentera, Spain

Take a boat from Ibiza to walk along the Playa de Ses Illetes in Formentera, Spain. You’ll be greeted with beautiful warm ocean water, pink sand, and various bike paths. Be careful though! While the scenery is quite stunning, the area is also known for an abundance of jelly fish!

July 4th To Do List: As Told by The Seven Guide

the.seven.guide.pinklyperfect

Written by: Brea Mealey, Founder of The Seven Guide & S E I Z E

 

The Fourth of July is, hands down, my favorite holiday weekend of the summer! The barbecues, fireworks, and red, white and blue everything makes for the quintessential shore weekend. To soak in all the Island has to offer this Fourth, I’ve rounded up 5 of my favorite new spots, along with tips for navigating each!

Shore Juice

#1. Kickstart your morning with a refreshing acai bowl from Shore Juice, tucked away in Harbor Square on 96th Street.  Little known fact is that Shore Juice offers a slew of bowl add-ons, like cacao nibs, goji berries, chia seeds, nutella, and pink Himalayan sea salt…none of which are listed on the menu!

 

PICK: The Nutty Bowl plus Pink Himalayan sea salt + a drizzle of nutella

Maryanne’s Pastry Shoppe

#2. While Maryanne’s Pastry Shoppe is a Sea Isle City veteran (since 1944!), they’re a relatively new player in the Seven Mile Island donut scene. Maryanne’s donuts, pastries, and crumb buns are made from scratch every day, with scrupulous attention to quality of ingredients (5 different types of sugar go into their donuts, alone!).

 

PICK: Filled Donuts, particularly the Powdered Cream

Located on the corner of 95th + 3rd.

The Watering Hull

#3. This second story restaurant and bar will instantly give you all the Island feels. With outdoor seating lined with twinkly lights, live music, and bountiful fresh seafood, The Watering Hull is our go-to spot for dinner and after-dinner drinks.

 

PICK: Build-Your-Own Poké Bowl with coconut quinoa, tuna, and citrus ponzu (a new addition to the summer 2017 menu!).

Located on the second level of Harbor Square.

 

#4. Soak in every last minute of daylight with a guided sunset Stand-Up-Paddleboard tour. Sunset SUP tours typically last 1.5 – 2 hours and leave from Harbor Outfitters’ location at 21st + The Bay. Be sure to apply some bug spray ahead of time, just in case!

Avalon Seafood

#5. An oldie but goodie, Avalon Seafood offers the best take-out seafood platters. Pick up your dinner and walk a block or two to the bay to enjoy with a chilled bottle of rosé while the sun goes down.

 

PICK: Lobster Roll with corn on the cob

Located on 29th + Ocean.
