The warm weather season has arrived and I don't know about you guys but we are ready for a vacation. While it might be a while before we can take a trip due to social distancing requirements and stay-at-home orders, we are taking advantage of the next best thing: a staycation. With the new norm, it's wise to invest in ways to create a summer vacation right in our own backyard — it just takes the right items. Bed Bath & Beyond makes it so easy! It's always been my longtime favorite one-stop-shop for home essentials. They carry everything you need from lounge chairs, beach towels, backyard games, to the perfect beach towel to turn your backyard into your next dream vacation.

I love to get outside as much as possible to get some Vitamin D (while wearing sunscreen of course). I sit in the zero gravity chair every chance I get. I love to read and just relax. I have a different version of this chair but this one is so much better –– it's wider and has a lot more cushion! It's lightweight, and it won’t rust! Easy to fold and transport and it makes any area feel like an island destination!
This Retro Outdoor 80 QT Cooler Ice Chest is perfect for those outdoor summer time parties and gatherings (or a backyard vacation). Or a personal beach vacation. It is so convenient to keep beverages and food cold! We love the built-in bottle opener with a catch tray. No more guest tracking grime into your home, no more bending over to search for the perfect beverage, no more searching for the bottle opener, and most importantly no more lukewarm drinks! The rear drain spout makes cleaning this cart a breeze. A must for summer!
I love a good Turkish towel––they are incredibly versatile. Because they’re lightweight, thin, absorbent, and (of course) beautiful, they’re the perfect accessory for your bathroom, the beach, and of course your backyard. These are GREAT beach towels—if you put it on the sand, the sand easily shakes off when you are done. After a swim, I find they dry my skin quickly & then the towel dries quickly too.
