It’s the middle of August and finally starting to really feel like summer on the East End. From here on, I’ll be devoting any spare moment to the ocean beach—the very reason so many of us choose to live here. Invigorating and revitalizing, the ocean leaves us relaxed and renewed. Careful, though—the sun is intense. Be sure to continue slathering on your SPF and wearing nice big sunglasses and hats.

One of my favorite products just got a new package. Hampton Sun’s Sunless Tanning Gel now comes in a pretty, golden ombré tube. Happily, the product itself is still the same, reliable instant tan that I love! You just rub it in and you are TAN! Same nice scent too! All Hampton Sun products are available locally and worldwide,
