Summer should be all about ease and spontaneity. Whether it's a spur-of-the-moment backyard BBQ or last-minute decision to drop everything and hit the beach, it's the season to be ready for anything without having to think twice.
Luckily, the TTHamptons bag has everything you need for that perfect golden summer. Filled with handpicked goodies for all your summertime needs, from grilling to post-beach pampering, it's got you covered.
The bag itself? It's made with golden jute and a waterproof interior lining, and comes from Apolis Global Citizen's Bangladesh Project, which empowers Bangladeshi women by providing career training and jobs.
Inside and out, it's a bag you'll want to get your hands on—so here's your chance. From now through July 6, if you follow Tasting Table on Instagram and post a pic of your favorite summer eats with hashtag #TTHamptons, you'll have a chance to win what we're dubbing our "summer survival tote."
Here's a sneak peek of what's inside:
Beach Survival Pack
The TTHamptons bag lets you play the long game at the beach, complete with everything you need for a full day in the sun. Get that summertime glow with Supergoop! suntan oil, while still protecting your flawless skin with COOLA Suncare Guava Mango Sunscreen Spray and Dermalogica solar protection.
Want instant beach waves to match your sun-kissed skin? Use Verb hair care's new Sea Spray. When it comes to apparel, whether you're wearing them or sitting next to the guy who is, these Slate & Stone swim trunks automatically put you on the beach's best-dressed list. Make sure you're the most stylish person on the sand with this striped beach blanket from One Kings Lane and that you keep cool with some San Pellegrino. Finally, look smart with Greetings from Utopia Park, the perfect thought-provoking beach read from TT contributor Claire Hoffman. You can even use the Montauk Beach House notebook to take notes.
No summer survival kit would be complete without a few grilling aids, which is why we've packed up Amagansett Sea Salt, Bushwick Kitchen gojuchang Sriracha, and BBQ tongs and trivet holders from Tovolo. You'll also find a gift card for The Fare Trade, a company which delivers a chef-curated basket of American-made artisanal ingredients to your door, and offers recipes and video tutorials online. Oh, and there's a bottle of Belvedere, which needs no explanation.
Don't leave home without your Katherine Cosmetics waterproof and smudge-proof eyeliner (beach friendly, folks) and Laura Geller illuminator to get that glow whatever the weather. Keep that beach bod in shape with classes at SoulCycle and 305 Fitness. And a little Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream never hurt anyone either.
At the end of the day, moisturize with H20+ Oasis hydrating treatment and bring on the beauty finds with GLOSSYBOX, which hand-delivers beauty products right to you. (Hey, we said keep it easy.) If you're looking to treat yourself to a new outfit for a night out on the town, shop for something special from M. Gemi. Then go catch a summer flick on iPic or a grab a meal at LDV Hospitality's Scarpetta Beach. For the perfect accessory, keep those whites pearly with GO SMiLE. Staying in? Cozy up with a pair of Sant and Abel pajamas and a Crate & Barrel throw, then rest up for tomorrow, because it's going to be another beach day.
Whether you're dashing out the door to get ocean-side bright and early or making your way back home after a long weekend, having the right snacks on hand is critical in our book. That's why the TTHamptons bag comes complete with Early Bird granola, perfect for starting your day, as well as Big Spoon Roasters granola bars and spread, which you'll want to eat with a spoon. Stay hydrated with Pure Leaf tea, and since chocolate, like rosé, should always been within arm's reach, have a stash of some of our favorites ready to go: Vosges Haut-Chocolat and Wild Ophelia.
It's looking like a great summer.
