Round Beach Towels – Summer Trend

One of the big trends for Summer this year is Round beach towels, more and more stores have been releasing their own designs over the past couple of months.

There are many designs to choose from, with prices to suit different budgets. They would make a great Christmas gift also!

Here are a few of my favourite designs

Fruit Print

Two of the hottest fruit prints/objects this summer are watermelons and pineapples, there are many different homewares and beach accessories around at the moment that are in the shape of these fruit or have the fruit print.

If you are fan of quirky or cheeky sayings, you’ll love the two designs below. I really love the ‘Beach Please’ one from BEACH BELLA…who doesn’t love a good pun? (or a bad one)

 You can’t go wrong with monochrome, it’s understated, but goes with everything! I absolutely love Peter Morrissey’s designs, especially the palm trees! He will always be one of my favourite Aussie designers.

 Single colour

The towels below are a great option if you want one that is a single coloured pattern on white rather than the black & while monochromatic ones. The Kmart round towel is a vibrant yellow and is the most affordable round beach towel, that I’ve come across.

Fathers Day gift ideas 2015

Father’s Day is a little over a week away and sometimes Dads are harder to buy gifts for than mums are , so I have to put together a list of Fathers day gift ideas, to suit different Dads’ needs.

This year my Dad’s birthday is the day after Father’s day, so it’s even harder to find the perfect gift!

For the new dad

It works too! not long ago Jimmy mentioned on his show that his youngest daughter, Frances’ first word was in fact ‘Dada’! Available as a hardcover ($24.99) and Board book ($14.99) from Dymocks bookstores.

For the dad with a sweet tooth

Fathers day gift ideasSpoon & Fork Dad’s Ultimate Box, cookies– I love these little whimsical cookies from Spoon & Fork, they are made and decorated to look like other foods, but they are all sweet cookies!
