This sea-glass blue, salt water-inspired spray is literally the beach in a bottle. The Stockholm-based brand Sachajuan crafts its hair-saving products by extracting proteins and minerals from sea algae and combining them with tailor-made active ingredients to produce unique results for a variety of hair types — they call it Ocean Silk Technology. This spray gives hair a been-at-the-beach-all-day look without actually going to the beach. Hello, waves! Also, leave it to the Swedes to design the most beautiful, minimal packaging.
My favorite way to drink coconut water is straight from a fresh young coconut (on the beach in Bali). Put the straw in the coconut, but don't drink it all up. Turns out coconut water is one of the few drinks that is beneficial whether you're sipping it or splashing it on your face. It's extremely hydrating and does not cause any irritation. I have the most sensitive skin — sometimes I think the water in LA is too harsh — and coconut water was the best thing for my dry and dull skin after traveling 24 hours to get to that beach in Bali.

Stripes are so French. The original breton striped shirt came with 21 stripes on it and each stripe functioned as a numerical totem that tallied Napoleon’s militant victories. Shortly following the 1858 Act of France, the navy and white striped knitted shirt was introduced as the uniform for all of the French Navy. It was't until 1917, when Coco Chanel introduced the design to the fashion world through her nautical collection that the shirt made its first foray into the sartorial vernacular. Then came the Audrey Hepburns and Brigitte Bardots of the world who wore the striped shirt so effortlessly that we all had to have one (or five).

Everyone loves a handwritten letter, but a handwritten letter delivered par avion in one of these très cute envelopes is even better. They make me think of Daphne Javitch's TEN Undies packing (slide 2). Send a note or say it all with a pair of undies.
