Sunset  Beach Picnics
Sunset Beach picnics
 are one of my favorite things to do this summer
here in
 Southern California.
As much as I love going out to many of the  amazing restaurants
we have here
there is just something magical about packing a picnic
heading down to the beach for sunset.
Sitting on the beach
watching the sky change colors
with a good glass of wine
is pretty much summer at it's best in my book!

To make packing up a picnic easierI have recently been collecting pieces to make a stylish beach picnic a snap!
Like these gorgeous tiffins from
Mur Lifestyle
Not being one who enjoys cookinga one stop shop at either Whole foods or Trader Joe'sand some quick repackagingand I'm ready to hit the beach with a beautiful healthy  and stylish meal!

The Corkcicle Canteen is my favorite new product!This medium size holds and entire bottle of wineand keeps things hot or cold for ten hours!
The many color selections are absolutely fresh!

On our picnics I'm all good with winewhile my husband prefers gin and tonicsso I have outfitted a vintage train casejust for traveling gin and tonics!

I even have a vintage table cloth tucked in the bottomand keep all the glass pieces protected by wrapping then with coordinating cloth napkins.
This little traveling bar caseis also perfect for hotel stays on our road trips.
I always put it away fully stockso I can pull it out in a flash for any impromptu getaways!
