Everyone loves pizza. Show off your obsession with it by floating on one! And if your friends are up to buying one each, you can create a whole pizza and take an Instagram-worthy shot that will have people saying #BarkadaGoals! (Available at Bratpack)


Sand-repelling beach blanket

If there is such a thing as to have “responsible” fun at the beach, you can do so by doing your part in preventing sand depletion.

Yup, tourists actually unintentionally displace at least three handfuls of sand per day. And because of climate change, natural sand replenishment just can’t keep up anymore. So the best way you can do your part while still being stylish on the beach is by getting yourself a sand-repelling beach blanket!

Lagu offers it in varying colors, so you’ll easily find the beach blanket that best suits your style. (Available at Life on the Sands)
