Summer Essential Series - Shelby Nycole

I am excited to share with ya'll, the first friend and fellow blogger Shelby Nycole's list of summer essentials. I first met Shelby at a frat party at WSU back in '98 (eek!) and we have grown closer over the years, since relocating to California. Shelby is a talented photographer, extremely fashionable and a recent newlywed. Check out her answers below and be sure to pop over to her blog as well!

*What one item can you not be without in the summer?

CHAPSTICK (yes in all caps) I'm an addict. All year round actually. My fav is probably Burt's Bees. And of course a good book. I've picked 2 (so far) for the summer:

Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg (because sometimes you just need a feel good light read and I love her down-home sittin on the back porch sippin lemonade style of writing).

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Because if its about a dog - I'm sold. And if its written from a dogs perspective? Double sold.

*What are you craving for summer 2009?

A house (ha!) I really want a cute romper.

*What is your essential summer song for 2009?

ooh a song....that's like picking a favorite child. I'm really loving anything by She & Him(though its not super summery). And I can't stop listening to You and I by Ingrid Michaelson. Oh and I always seem to turn on Island in the Sun by Weezer during the summer months.

Thank you so much Shelby for sharing your summer essentials. I am definitely addicted to that Burt's Lip Balm as well. I don't think I am brave enough to sport a romper but know you can definitely pull the look! Check back tomorrow for
No Day But Today's list.
