It's All Here The Pitch: SPF
30 sunscreen (2 oz.) … check; SPF
15 lip balm … check; breath mints for flirting with the cute lifeguard … check.
Item #2001 from Leashables By Oralabs (asi/66715) has
all of these products, conveniently packaged in a travel-friendly, see-through
bag. Pricing starts at: Qty.-100; list price-$5.49; price code-R.
Web address: www.leashables.com. The Bottom Line: Summer savers.
Beach Blanket Bingo The Pitch: My
son went to the beach the other day with no towel! Who does that, other
than spacey teenage boys? "I didn't
die without one, Mom," he said. I, however, would indeed die without
all the necessary comforts at the beach. Item #V05-E from Fairdeal
Import & Export Ltd. (asi/53509) seems just
right for me and others who like a little luxury. It's a plush cotton terry
velour towel with headrest. It has a security pocket and rolls up quick
and easy with elastic roll cords and adjustable 30" shoulder carry strap. Pricing
starts at: Qty.-100; list price-$54.08; price code-R. Web
address: www.fiel.com. The Bottom Line: Snooze in the sand.
The Boys of Summer The Pitch: I
watched the Phillies roll over the Rockies again last night, live and in
person at Citizens Bank Park. (Sorry to my Colorado e-mail buddy and Rockies
supporter, Jerry Webster.). It was Fightin' Phils
Cap Night, but wouldn't this make a fun giveaway too? Item #10252
from Action Line/Norwood (asi/31010) is a baseball maraca/key
holder/bottle opener. Shaking your maracas would certainly spice up your
rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," would it not? Pricing
starts at: Qty.-250; list price-$2.31; price code-R. Web address: www.norwood.com. The Bottom Line: Increase your batting average.
For the Canoodlers The Pitch: I read this
morning that actress Kate Hudson and uber-biker Lance Armstrong were "spotted canoodling in Cannes." Good
for them! I should really canoodle more. For athletes and canoodlers everywhere, Expert
Performance T (asi/53404) has an inexpensive men's sleeveless
tank with self fabric binding. It has a relaxed fit for maximum comfort and is
made from 100% microfiber oXy mesh construction. It features moisture-wicking technology
and antimicrobial treatment with Body Freshe to keep guys fresh as a daisy. Pricing
starts at: Qty.-12; list price-$8.18; price code-R (size
2XL will cost extra). It comes in navy, red and white. They also have a women's
version available. Web address: www.expertperformancet.com. The Bottom Line: Fresh and fabulous.
Sunny Honey The Pitch: You've heard of Hints from Heloise? Well,
here's a little tip from Kathy (sorry, I couldn't think of
any 'K' words for hints … if you can, let me know):
I like to use sunscreen as a moisturizer sometimes, because of the tropical
scent, the sun protection factor and the awesomeness of always feeling
like you're in the tropics, even when you're in a stuffy office
with fluorescent lighting. Natural Trends (asi/73497) has
a whole bunch of great sunscreens available, including item #AB3404, 4
oz. with SPF 45 in a clear oval bottle with black or white press lid. The
water-resistant formula protects against UVA and UVB rays. It has a light
tropical fragrance and the FDA-required drug facts label is included. Perfect
for resorts, pool clubs, outdoor events and more. Pricing starts
at: Qty.-250; list price-$4.35; price code-R. Web address: www.naturaltrends.com. The Bottom Line: A shore thing.
