It’s Hot in Here: Snarky Summer Top Picks

……(Try and say that title fast – I dare you!)

Well, time is flying by this year. The older I get the faster it goes. I have been blogging and social media– ing away and now it is post Mother’s Day, a few weeks closer to another 30ish’ish Bday, Father’s Day and my awesome (and patient) parent’s anniversary. If you keep up with me on social media (you should if you don’t because you are missing out on great stuff) you can see that I have been traveling like crazy. But, never fear I am here to combine the best of the best products I have discovered, been pitched and received.

As I have written a few times before, the business of blogging has introduced me to some cool and snarky products, which I love sharing with all of you. These are good for any occasion.

In no particular order because these items all rock and are snarky fun!

Chic Buds Porta Party Speakers

Lets ROCK!

1. Chic Buds PORTA PARTY Bluetooth Wireless Speakers (at first I thought from the name they may have to be in the Snark Tank but they are really cute and fun but just don’t say the name TOO FAST).

Since I was a wee little snarky one, I’ve been addicted to my music and must listen to good rock and roll while I work or my productivity goes way down. No – seriously! These little speakers are adorbs and come in a variety of colors and patterns to match your personality. They are small enough to throw in your purse but pack a great sound, crispness and have a seamless speaker phone option to ensure you won’t miss a call while rocking out.




2. Modify Watches

I knew I loved the watches before busting open the package. They use the word “DOPE” in their marketing. That is DOPE. These are so fun and do exactly what they say they can do. You can modify your watch to match whatever mood you’re in. They sent me two straps to mix and match and you know when they asked my colors – it had to be pink, black and sparkly. Mission accomplished. No matter what mood or occasion, you can modify your watch to make sure that your look is on point. I want the SF Giants part next!

Skinny Dip Massage Candle

Yummy – even comes with a spoon for easy application!

3. Skinny Dip -Massage Candle

You know how much I love massages? Now, if I could only find a handsome man to dine with while this candle lights the curves of my body and face in all the right places –like I said, we all look better in candle light. Not only that, this candle smells live heaven and you will want to eat it. Trust me. But, wait. This candle does more than just burn. It burns into massage oil that you can use to rub all over your body or your lucky partners body. **Please note this site has A LOT more adventurous items so you may want to wait until you get home to click here!


Now, you remember for Valentines Day I introduced you to the Accessories Council? They’re back and have sent me more fantastic accessories for a post Mother’s Day post — Yay! Summer is almost here roundup! They never fail to deliver items from brand new designers and feature many of my all time favorites as well.



Everything was fab in the package! #ACTTOPPICKS

Here are my favs from the Accesories Council #ACTTOPPICKS

4. Lia Sophia Wayfarer Necklace

I mean, I could be on a boat right now. Well, if I wasn’t working and in LA proper. This necklace is nautical inspired and I have the badge “I’m on a Boat” on foursquare so it counts! It is actually a set of 3 detachable chains.

I’m on a BOAT!


5. Stella & Dot -The Classic

Listen, you can never go wrong with a bag like this. It is super fun for the summer and plenty of room for me to stash my flip and flop and whatever else I buy while making my shopping rounds. This bag is great for the beach. Want to go?

Stella and Dot the classic

Flip AND Flop can BOTH fit in here!


6. Olivia and Joy- Lillie Wristlet

You remember the time you were going to a sporting event with a hot guy and you could not bring in your shopper? I do– and it was a little embarrassing to tell him that I did not have a purse smaller than me. I searched for a good wristlet and they’re hard to find. Needless to say – I will be using this a lot more than once. Can someone say Billboard Music Awards on Sunday?

Olivia and joy wristlet

Just the right size!


7. Stella & Max – “All I Need” Clutch

Million Dollar Red Clutch with GOLD accents. Yes please. Plus, inside it tells you where to put cards, ID, money, coupons, receipts and more for maximum shoving power. Perfect for the working woman with sass and snark.

Million dollar red with gold! And…it tells me what to do.


8. X By Troll Beads –Flow Bracelet

If this doesn’t say Rockstar – I don’t know what does? It’s so hard for me to pick which piece I like best. Maybe I need to go back and do a little shopping? This collection is designed for you to play and create unique and fun combinations. Go and do it!

X By Troll Beads

What kind of rockstar are you?

9. Adrienne Landua- Fox Fur Keychain

It is fluffy and pink. Just like me! Too cute and I need a new keychain for my keys because the valet at the Four Seasons decided to walk off with my old one.

Pink Fluffy for me!


10. GO! SAC- Packable Tote

This is for the over packer in all of us. Just shove it in anywhere and unfold when ready. Voila – nice size carrying tote.

Go! Sac

But, I have the grey color. So many colors to choose from.


11. Pico Design -Laser Cut Heart Pendant

Super cute and interesting. I don’t have anything like this. Simple yet makes a statement. Plus Pico means “little” and I am short. So, it’s a fit

Pico means little and I am short but have a BIG heart.


Other notable accessory brands were kind enough to include gift cards to their sites. Check them out too- Iristocracy  and Minnie Rose. Both brands have a plethora of accessories to choose from on their sites (and I will be perusing through and buying some items following posting this post). Like I said time is flying by and I want you to look at each and every item here and let me know your thoughts. Maybe one of these brands will be kind enough to do a giveaway with us for your chance to win. In the meantime, trust me – I have great taste!!!

**Stay snarky my friends!**
