We hope you love our selections as much as we do...and yes, there's a huge giveaway too. In fact, the winner will have a choice of either a $500 surprise goodie box OR a prize from our gift closet

We couldn't have a Favorite Things Summer Edition without Miraclesuit! The Be Dazzled Escape with Rhinestones is almost too pretty to swim in. The blue color is magnificent and the elegant iridescent beading across the bust dances is the sunlight. Soft shirring in the front, a scalloped sweetheart neckline, and wide straps help slim and create the most slenderizing illusion possible. Free shipping and free returns on every purchase! Also available in Black in sizes 8-16. $192 at

costa islamorada sunnies
A cool pair of sunnies are definitely a must! Protect your precious peepers from damaging rays with Costa's Islamorada. They provide 100% UV protection and are GORGEOUS! We love the chic Black and Coral combo and the metal logo accent on the temple. They're as light as a gentle breeze and are the most comfortable sunglasses I've ever worn. 100% Polarization eliminates glare and reduces eyestrain. The plastic lenses are scratch and impact resistant and they come with a lifetime warranty. ♥ Available in multiple colors starting at $179 at

The iDeaPLAY from iDeaUSA will keep the kiddies engaged during the long car or plane ride to your vacation destination. I was recently on a 10-hour train ride and the iPlay kept the 4-year old girl in the seat next to me entertained for hours. She showed me how it worked and I watched in amazement how she whizzed through all the applications. Encased in food safe silicone, iDeaPlay is water-resistant, drop-resistant, and has a 7" easy-to-read display. It comes pre-loaded with many fun games and apps including Color & Draw and Shrek Forever After. Features include Videochat Camera, App Wish List and Play Timer. Regularly $129, it's on sale as of this writing for $99 at

tarnish free silver soho ampora pitcher

I guarantee the Beatriz Ball Soho Ampora Pitcher will be used not only all summer long, but the entire year as well. Beautiful for outdoor luncheons, tea parties, or just because, it's a work of art that is just too pretty to be saved for special occasions. Fill with juice, iced tea or infused waters and enjoy every day. Features a dimpled surface, exquisite lines, and superb craftsmanship. Measures 7x7x11". $148 at

Capture, share, and relive the exhilaration of sky diving, hang gliding, snorkeling, rafting, surfing and all your adventures this summer with Polaroid's XS80 HD 1080 p 16MP Sports Action Video Camera. This little baby weighs under 4 ounces, is water-resistant to 30 ft, and has a single button record {thank you, Polaroid!}. The aerodynamic design and shockproof exterior minimizes wind noise. Additional features include ultra wide angle lens, low light performance and sensory vibration when visual confirmation isn't practical. $129 at

One of my fave entrepreneurial stories of all time, Origami Owl was started in 2010 by 14-years old "Bella", who wanted to earn enough money to buy a car for her 16th birthday. Today Origami Owl has grown to 60,000 Independent Designers across the country. Independent Designers sell beautiful custom living lockets personalized at Jewelry Bars {home parties}. A variety of the highest quality lockets and chains, charms, plates and dangles are available. The charms, dangles and plates are sold separately and can be changed with every season or special occasion. To create your story or learn more about the opportunity visit

After testing the iLuv SyrenPro™, I'm wondering why I had an outdoor speaker installed that is subject to rain, wind, sun, and snow when I could have had the same sound quality from this portable speaker for far less $$$. The SyrenPro™ is a UV/weather-resistant wireless bluetooth speaker that can be plugged into an outlet or used wirelessly to enjoy 360° sound for up to 4 hours of playtime at the beach, pool, camping...anywhere! Connect a second unit wirelessly for TrueWireless Stereo™ sound. Available in black or white for $129.99 at

luxurious 24K vitamin c cleanser

I adore every Orogold 24K product I've tried and the Orogold 24K Vitamin C Cleanser didn't disappoint. The refreshing citrus scent awakens the senses and the cleanser leaves skin feeling as though a moisturizer was applied. Works wonderfully with the Clarisonic. A beautiful pump bottle arrives exquisitely gift boxed. $128 at

The UP® by Jawbone combined with the ingenius UP App's Insight Engine™ encourages you to walk more, stay hydrated, and sleep better.

I've been thrilled with the results from L'Occitane's Divine Cream so I was eager to try Divine Extract. The serum contains the highest concentration of Immortelle and Myrtle essentials oils to plump the skin. The serum has a silky texture, smells divine and leaves skin glowing. Use before Divine Cream and Divine Eyes. Watch out wrinkles! A 1 fl. oz bottle is $119 at
