I recently celebrated my 60th birthday with my family in Eilat, Israel. Family includes my husband, married children, grandchildren and the baby of our family, our 18 year old son. We flew to our vacation destination which meant that luggage was limited. I love to wear nice clothes and I am not a good packer, but this time I knew that HydroChic would be my staple this vacation and packed a few sets: a jacket, shirt, skirt and capri pants. I knew that these outfits would be great for all the activities on my vacation, and when I woke up each morning I put on a HydroChic outfit and was ready to go. My daughters-in-law were impressed but not surprised when they saw me in HydroChic because they know that I live in my HydroChic at our community pool, and over the years I have gotten each of them a HydroChic outfit so that they can enjoy too.
“Dying young isn’t cool either…” These words, though a bit harsh, were the words that our dermatologist berated my 13 year old daughter with this morning.
Goodbyes are always hard, but Labor Day gives us the chance to bid farewell to Summer in style, while savoring the very last of it! So before you swap your swimsuits for pantsuits, why not pack up the family and head out for one last weekend of basking in the glorious sun?

Water bottle. Check.
You probably haven’t updated your beach bag content in quite some time. Although the beach hasn’t changed much, technology certainly has and the market’s been spitting out some pretty awesome products that you’ll want to add to your checklist pronto!
There are lots of reasons we love the beach; the sun on our skin, the sand between our toes, the calming sound of waves slapping into the shore. But in 2016, I’d have to say one of the biggest perks of a seaside getaway is the much-needed reprieve it offers us from our sizable collection of hand-held devices. With the sun glaring up our vision and the threat of sand or water-imposed damage, we’re forced to tuck our smartphones and tablets safely inside the folds of our bags and reacquaint ourselves with the world beyond the screen- and boy, is it breathtaking. In this tech-free haven, we remind ourselves of the joys of real-life human connection, the simple pleasure found in a game of Frisbee or volleyball, and, of course, the incomparable satisfaction of flipping through the wonderfully tangible pages of a fantastic book.
If these images have you scrambling for your flip-flops and sunscreen, here are a few summer must-reads that are sure to enhance your day in the sand: [Read more…] about Your Summer Reading Guide
