What We Bought: Rockets of Awesome’s Team Summer Must-Haves

Because summer is about so many things (beauty, fashion, your kids, your skin, your sanity), we’ve gathered seasonal must-haves from the Rockets of Awesome team just in time for the change in temperatures. From the hairbrush that will cut down on you (and your daughters!) getting ready time to a bouncy castle meets water slide (yes, this is a THING), here is your ultimate summer shopping list — from the experts of AWESOMENESS.

The Splurge Toy

“It’s a splurge but maybe the best money I spent last summer – this bouncy castle meets water slide is HOURS of summer peace and quiet for you and fun for the kids,” Rachel, CEO.

The Kid-Friendly Water Shoe

“You never know when you’re going to run into a water playground in the summer so these water-friendly shoes are a must to wear everyday all summer long,” Caroline, Senior Director of Planning.

The Time Occupier

“Public transportation with a two year old can be an “interesting” experience. No service underground for any youtube kids, so I always make sure I bring a coloring book for my child and myself! I have bought a few in Michaels and Target but it is always fun to color together,” Kiare, CX Associate.

The Easy-On Fashion Piece

“I can’t live without my mix and match easy, beachy cotton pieces from Cecile Copenhagen,” Abby, Head of Design.

The Brush-On Sunscreen Solution

“I have super sensitive skin and do whatever I can to avoid putting oils or heavy lotions on my face. I love a brush-on powder sunscreen because I get full coverage and don’t feel greasy,” Zoee, Brand Manager.

The Tie Up

Silk scrunchies (like silk pillowcases) are magic. I use the smaller ones because I have thin/straight/damaged hair, but still don’t want any creases from my beach braids,” Ashlee, Digital Designer.

The De-Tangling Brush

Summertime is wet hair time and when you have stringy, thin hair like mine, that means knots. This trait apparently runs in the family which is why it’s essential that me and my niece never leave home without a wetbrush,” Ruthie, Creative Strategist.
