Beach Please!

As many of us are trudging through the thick of winter, you might be familiar with a common phenomenon we simply refer to as beach envy. Facing forecasts of cold, gloomy days can really cause us to pine for warm, carefree seaside escapes, preferably with tropical drink in hand. 

Below, we've rounded up a few beach-inspired picks to tide us over until we can bask in summer's blissful glow once again. Oh, and if you're reading this from on or below the equator right now, please send some much needed beach vibes our way, will ya? 

ONE FOR YOU...TWO FOR ME...

When it comes to gifts, we totally agree that it's the thought that counts, and that the real meaning of the holiday season doesn't have anything to do with gifts at all. But sometimes, you just have to spoil yourself a little. Be your own Santa, if you will. We've rounded up some of the frivolous yet fabulous gift picks we hope to find under the tree this year. Even if the box says "To: Me, From: Me"
