So first and foremost, I feel like I should preface this post by saying that I’m using the word essentials loosely. Though I’m well aware that flamingo cups, popcorn makers and string lights aren’t exactly essentials, I firmly believe that they will make your summer just a little bit better. It’s all about the little things, you know? I mean, I don’t know about you, but the fact that flamingo cups exist is enough to make me smile!
