Are you ready to have happiness delivered to your door step once a month? The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is the perfect way to add a smile to your face and a handful of amazing products to your life!

POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try and since I loved everything so much I just have to share all the goodies with you!

With all kinds of exciting summer fun on the schedule, I'm so excited to have some of these items on hand to enjoy the hot, long days! From festive nail polish for the 4th to a dreamy sarong, this box has everything a fashionista could want!

We'll go ahead and start with the dreamy Sarong from Hat Attack in Neutral Diamonds. The print is perfect for any occasion and it's so flowy that my pregnant belly doesn't feel like a nuisance while rocking it. As a beach bunny, I'm a huge fan of sarongs but this one may be my new favorite... it's so soft and lightweight and it fits perfectly in my beach bag! What more could I ask for?

While I'm not popping the top off any brewskis in my current state, this adorable Sisters of Los Angeles "Cheers" Gold Bottle Opener is the perfect way to help a friend in need out! Plus, it makes an adorable decoration on a bar cart and the perfect addition to any BBQ occasion that involves an adult brew or two!

I can't talk about adult brews and a good time, without mentioning The Wild and Wolf Ridley's Games Room "Who Am I?" Quiz game! This game is so much fun! It's like "Guess Who" and trivia had a baby and "Who Am I?" is that beautiful love child! Team up with a few friends that have had a couple of beers and get ready to giggle at some of the clues or bust this game out when meeting new people and break the ice instantly in a fun way!

Speaking of ice, if you love a little sparkle then you'll adore the Must Have Beauty item in the box - the NCLA Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer is full of little specks of sparkle and the perfect way to show off your patriotic side this summer! It also gets a couple of bonus points for being cruelty-free, in my book! This beautiful shimmery shade is a POPSUGAR exclusive, which is so neat and makes me love it even more! Add a coat over a deep shade of red and you'll be rocking beautiful nails in minutes!

Once your nails look beautiful, you'll have to check the rest of yourself out with the handy dandy Knock Knock Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact! It's the most adorable way to sneak a peek at yourself, whether you're checking your eyeliner for smudges or peeking at your summertime love over your shoulder this little compact mirror is just too cute not to stick in your purse for use all summer long!

Now that you know that you look good, it only makes sense to make sure you smell great as well! I think that's probably why Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes are in the POPSUGAR Must Have box this month and I'm definitely not complaining! With fresh, clean scents that neutralize odors for hours without any aluminum - I'm totally a fan of these and will be stashing the pack in my purse as well!

The last Must Have item in my box is the Pressels Sriracha Pretzel Chips and if you know me, you know I'm not necessarily a big fan of pretzels but these funky little chips are actually pretty tasty! With just the right amount of kick and a delicious crunch, I'll definitely be snacking on these while wrapped in my sarong and admiring my mani-pedi this summer!

Stay Mosquito-Free Ths Summer with Orkin on Your Side!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Orkin; however, all thoughts and  opinions are my own.

Are you wanting to do everything you can to protect your family and those around you that are expecting from the Zika virus? Find out how Orkin's treatments are the best Zika virus Precaution and why you should treat your house today

As a mama to be, I'm hyper aware of mentions of pregnancy on the news and when I heard about the Zika virus I pretty much had a panic attack on the spot. It's not that I travel to Mexico often or even plan on visiting any time soon, it's just the fact that we live in a pretty culturally diverse area with a beach that attracts people from all over the world... It's hard not to worry that one of the millions of tourists that visit my beautiful beachy hometown will be carrying the virus and all it takes is one bite from one mosquito and my baby and I are in danger.

Unfortunately, in Florida, your own backyard can be an excellent mosquito breeding ground - all they need is one bottle cap worth of standing water and babies are on their way! Instead of being able to focus on our summer plans, all I could think about was avoiding these pesky little creatures by all means possible. With the Zika virus and the West Nile virus making headlines, it's hard not to stress about mosquitoes.

Instead of spending all summer indoors worrying, hubby and I decided we needed to be proactive and take the mosquito problem head on. While we can't walk around annihilating every little blood sucker in our area we can keep them out of our yard and that's where Orkin comes into the picture. They've got mosquito control down to a science!

We've been getting Pest Control treatments for our house monthly since we moved in last May and we've never even seen a bug in our house. So when our lovely Orkin guy mentioned that they also offer a mosquito treatment for outdoors, we knew it was something we wanted to have done to protect our precious little babe, myself, and my husband as well.

With award-winning training and advanced technology, our Orkin Man was able to look for conditions that invite mosquitoes, tackled all the current issues we had that were breeding current infestations, and stopped the life cycle of these little nuisances to help reduce the number of them in my yard. With more than 160 hours of training (in just his first year), I have confidence in my Orkin guy and know that my property is protected from these pests because of his skills - now mosquitoes don't stand a chance!

I'm happy to say after these treatments I'm confident that our summer can be full of backyard fun without the worry! We're so confident, in fact, that we're actually planning on hosting our baby shower in our backyard in July and BBQ-ing with some of our other friends in just a week or two! It's nice to be at ease in our own backyard and I'm super thankful that Orkin was able to help protect my family.

Make your life easier with these kitchen hacks! Whip together a delicious yet simple dinner, clean up the kitchen in seconds, and create a more adorable space all in a few hours time!

I'll be as up front as I can possibly be with you, lately I just haven't been feeling the whole homemaker thing. Growing a tiny human is exhausting and preparing our house for her arrival has caused me to feel even more tired the past few weeks, so when it comes time to clean & organize the rest of our house and make dinner, I like to make things as easy as humanly possible. Today I want to make your life a little easier, while I don't consider myself Suzy Homemaker I suppose you could say I'm sharing a couple of "kitchen hacks" that will hopefully make your life feel a bit less stressful.

I'm excited to be sharing my ultimate BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich recipe, it's so easy to make but we all know that BBQ gets a little messy. For that reason, I think it's important that I share how easy keeping your kitchen spic & span can be with the new Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths. Lastly, I want to share a recent DIY project and how I'm keeping my kitchen a tiny bit more organized and adorable.

We'll go ahead and address how clean my kitchen looks... While I wish I could take all of the credit, it's really thanks to Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths! Their scrubbing power makes cleaning easy, so I suppose you could say these convenient little dish cloths are practically an all-in-one kitchen tool. While I'm used to cleaning up our kitchen with a standard dish cloth, these beauties have totally made the task a heck of a lot easier!

Now I know what you're thinking, "How do the Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths make cleaning easier?" It's simple, the premium, textured dish cloth features two super helpful sides, with scrubbing technology on one side (similar to Scotch-Brite sponges but even more amazing) capable of cleaning up even the most stuck on messes (like BBQ sauce simmered in a pan for hours). While the other side provides the versatility of a dish cloth and is absolutely perfect for wiping down the dirtiest of surfaces!

I'll be honest and share, this summer I've been indulging a bit in some delicious pregnancy cravings! I still hate pickles so I won't be sharing any funky pickles and ice cream recipe... and I guess you could say I'm kind of lucky because my cravings mainly involve fresh fruit. It's nice to be able to indulge myself without having to worry about calories or sugar content and because it tastes so refreshing with each and every bite! The best part is it's all grown locally... From watermelon to blueberries, I love that I'm able to snack on some of my favorite fruits while also giving back to this gorgeous state I live in.
