Sprummer round up : sun essentials

Whether you’re maximizing this hot streak or getting ready for a vacay, Mama’s got you covered with some local goods that are tried, tested and true.


ON MY LEVEL BUCKET HAT - lightweight, packable and fits my tiny noggin’. If you want to hit up that 90’s style without an over-commitment, this bucket hat is an easy accessory. lululemon.com $48

EUCALYPTUS COCO BODY WASH - Vancouverites Michelle & Fate are the brains behind the natural plant based brand which boasts products that are 100% free from fillers, toxins, fragrances and synthetics. I love the refreshing scent without tingling on the privates. mifaandco.com $32

OPI SUN, SEA AND SAND IN MY PANTS - If you’re like me and are gung-ho for yellow then this is a sweet mango shade that works on all skin tones. amazon.ca $13


LED + OXYGEN FACIAL - in and out in 30 mins, Fig Facial has you covered. The LED + Oxygen facial left my face feeling young(er) and hydrated. figface.com $75

FACE OIL + FACE MIST - I love Kavisha’s personal blends that were tailored to my needs. I initially ordered a face oil and then went back for the face mist. She uses essential oils and specific bases based on my skin’s needs. She’s based in Toronto but delivery is super quick. PS EVRĒDĀ is who is the co-creator of the dreamy Feelosophy massage oil I use in class. EVRĒDĀ $50ish

$100 PLUS

BETH RICHARDS KIM BIKINI - okay, this was a super splurge, but I’m all about that leopard print right meow. I received fantastic customer service and they were prompt to get me into the perfect size. I’m going to use the swim top not only for the pool but also while teaching classes. It has enough coverage but won’t hinder my tan lines (yes, I still like sunbathing although I know how bad it is, thankyouverymuch). bethrichards.com $110 USD each

NICOLE PURDY LINEN - Another Vancouver special, Nicole is the one-woman show behind this linen label. Everything is custom ordered and she can tailor the fit to your needs. I ordered the Laura top and Classic short in Rose. I may or may not be matching my mini when we’re in France. nicolepurdy.ca $140

CAT EYE SUNNIES - I am a die-hard VOGUE eyewear fan because again, they fit my teeny tiny noggin’. The specs I most recently picked up are from the Gigi Hadidi collection. sunglasshut.com $179
