Hello and welcome back to another week of Friday picks with the Busy Gal. As you know this is where in my such around the internet, I find things that I like, want, need or already have and I share them with you.
Camping and boating are great summer events, so with that in mind I decided to showcase some items that can come in handy while you are enjoying your outdoor activities this summer.
#1 – O’Brien Women’s Life Jacket
If you are planning a lake trip and want to ski or participate in other water sports, then you need to invest in a good life jacket. This is the life jacket I have and I love it. I got mine at Amazon. You can check it out (affiliate link) here.
It works perfect for all water activities on the lake. I have tried several other brands of life jackets, but I always come back to O’Brien. In my opinion, they are the best. I have owned this particular life jacket for a couple of years and I must say it has really held up good and still looks new and it hasn’t faded and the zipper works great. Plus, I love the colors.
Gone are the days of the bright orange thingy that went around your neck…..remember those. Now they are a fashion statement just like clothes or other outdoor gear, plus you can get them for the entire family. Not just one size fits all.
#2 – Hot Sauce and Vinyl Sauce Boat Cleaners
I know this is not a fun item. But one that is necessary if you have a boat, RV, motorcycle or ATV. You will definitely need these cleaners. They are the best on the market in my opinion.
The Hot Sauce (red label) is great for cleaning the outside of your boat. It removes all the hard water spots and leaves a quality shine. It will make the outside of your boat look brand new.
The Vinyl Sauce (green label) is great for the vinyl interior of your boat. It removes dirt, sunscreen, suntan oils and mildew. You can use it on vinyl, leather and plastic and even carpet. Great stain remover. It also helps to prevent mold and mildew during the winter storage months. Plus both products are biodegradable and environmentally safe.
#3 – Marshmallow Roasting Skewers
Aren’t these the cutest (affiliate link) marshmallow roasters? I remember when my dad would cut a small branch from a tree and whittle the end so that we could slide our marshmallows onto the little stick for roasting. These are definitely an upgrade and will probably last longer….I was always losing my stick anyway. They telescope to extend to 32 inches so you and your kids can stay a safe distance from the fire. And when not in use they retract down to 12 inches for great storage. Super cute. Check out more items for home and backyard at (affiliate link) Nordstrom.
These would be great for a weekend of camping; sitting around the camp fire or if not camping a weekend around the fire pit in the backyard would still be fun. You could probably even roast hot dog wieners on these if you like.
#4 – Sunology Mineral Sunscreen
With all those outdoor activities this summer, you will need to invest in some good quality sunscreen. This is the sunscreen I use and I love it. Since having several basal cell carcinomas removed, I became more adamant about my sunscreen. I wanted a great product without all the crazy chemicals. This sunscreen is a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB, water resistant, sweat resistant, eco-friendly, no animal testing, made with natural active ingredients to reflect UV rays and best of all it really works great.

Hope you have enjoyed today’s picks for all your outdoor fun and activities this summer.
Have a great weekend.
