Designer, Lifestyle Expert, and blogger Kelly Page shares some timely tips and hacks for must-have items necessary for making the most of your summer. This mother of three energetic kids will share some keys to summer survival and how to turn a busy lifestyle into some qualify family time!
MUST-HAVE ITEM EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE FOR SUMMER
While this summer may look a bit different it’s still important to ensure you have the proper protection when you’re outside soaking up the sun. One of the most overlooked spots when applying sun protection is your lips, but this delicate part of the skin is still susceptible to sun damage. ChapStick Moisture + Tint with SPF 15 is a must-have because it is a tinted lip balm and mineral sunscreen in one. Not only does it nourish your lips with a pretty tint of color, but it provides broad-spectrum SPF 15 protection, so you can enjoy your time in the sun and look good while doing so! It’s available in three shades – Very Berry, Peachy Keen and Pretty in Pink, which are all made up of 100% naturally sourced ingredients to help hydrate and enhance lips.

FUN TREAT SUGGESTIONS
I just got back from a vacation with my family and the one thing my husband wanted to make sure I got before we left was Haribo Gummies. They are a must have on all of our trips. We love the iconic Goldbears, Starmix and Twin Snakes. There is brand new, limited-edition gummi I want to tell you about though. It’s the Passport Mix which has HARIBO gummies from countries around the world. It’s so fun. HARIBO’s must-have gummies are made with the highest quality ingredients and are the perfect shareable treat to inspire childlike happiness this summer and all year-long. You can find these treats at retailers nation-wide. And here is a fun fact… this year, HARIBO, the inventor of the gummi bear, is celebrating its 100th anniversary as a family-owned business. There are 5 flavors. Personally, I like to combine raspberry, the red, and pineapple, the white. For more information, visit www.HARIBO.com
KEEP THE KIDS LEARNING DURING THE SUMMER
It has been a challenge, and this year it’s more important than ever to keep learning.

ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS FOR THINGS THAT WE MUST-HAVE TO HELP US GET THROUGH THE SUMMER
We’re more aware than ever of the threat of germs and viruses in our homes. I recently discovered the Remington Airetrex 365 Home Air Sanitizer. You feel better the moment you plug it in. What makes it so effective is the same virus neutralizing ultra-violet light technology used in hospitals is now in a product safe for home use. The unit is designed so there is no direct exposure to the powerful light inside, making it safe for you, kids and pets. The Remington Airetrex 365 helps create peace of mind for your family by reducing airborne germs, viruses and bacteria. It circulates air about six times per hour in a ten by ten room, keeping air sanitized as family and guests come and go. It does all of this while operating quietly and without emitting any harmful chemicals, so you just plug it in and let it run the background night and day. You can find it online at remingtonheater.com/UV for under $200, plus free shipping.
