Hello Mudder, Hello Fadder...Here I am...at Camp Granada

Summer camp is just around the corner!  That means sending much appreciated care packages to your Camper!  Email may be quicker, but when you are away from home for 3-6 weeks nothing is better than a care package of fun items.  The usual loot includes magazines, puzzles, water balloons, glow sticks, etc. 
For the girls, I spotted these very cool Marc By Marc Jacobs silcone bracelets.  The silicone is similar to rubber, but smoother and softer (the material is like the Yellow LiveStrong bracelets). The bracelets are bright and colorful, WATERPROOF and won’t wear out after a summer of swimming!  The neon colors also are a nice highlight to that summer tan. 
Every tween/teen loves designer wear, and while you don’t want to blow the bank for pricey stuff these bracelets are inexpensive.  One single bracelet is cute and plenty, but they are cute to stack together.
For the larger bracelets, while you may not notice it right off, the links of the bracelet are actually in the shape of the Marc by Marc Jacobs’ lips/kiss logo (you can see it better when you pull the links a bit).  Clever indeed! 

For both styles, the hot pink, royal blue and bright green colors are my favorites.  Additional colors include: purple, orange, navy blue, white, red, black, etc.
Each bracelet comes with a Marc Jacobs black velvet drawstring pouch--a nice touch for presentation and we all know tweens/teens are decidely more impressed with a gift if it is designer!
Spice It Up:  Pair the bracelets with some sassy nail polish.  Neon polish is especially fun in the summer time.  I prefer these Revlon Neon polishes because one end is the Neon color and the other end is white paint. 

Both ends include a brush
If you have ever tried neon polish, you know it takes multiple layers and it often still does not look as bright as in the bottle.  Revlon solved that problem with the addition of white paint that you use as a base coat.  After a layer of the white paint, then add the neon coats.  This really makes the neon pop!

Neon bracelets & nail polish make a great Camp Care Package, birthday gift, travel gift for study abroad, or summertime fun for the family outing to the beach/lake/pool.  I’ll confess they are cute even for adults!
Camp Care Package Tip: For the tired Mom, a great website to order Camp Care packages to be delivered to your camper is: Sealed with a Kiss or Just 4 Camp.  They have some great ideas for fun knick knacks for your boys and girls, and they take care of the hassle of boxing and shipping!
