The Pink Monogram Giveaway

Location: Capitola Beach, CA
I'm tickled "pink" and thrilled to have teamed up with The Pink Monogram to give one lucky reader a gorgeous customized monogram sun hat such as the one I am featuring on the blog today!  This is the quintessential summer must have for any beach day, summer afternoon picnic, or boardwalk excursion with your family!    Plus, who doesn't love a personalized monogram?  

If you're not familiar with The Pink Monogram check out their site here.  They have customized monogram hats, totes, jewelry, shoes, backpacks and so many more adorable personalized items!!  I can't tell you how many people stopped me to ask where I purchased my sun hat and chevron striped tote!  These make great gift ideas! 



I recently had a chance to visit Capitola, CA which is a quaint little seaside beach town on the coast of the Monterey Bay.  It's actually just a little over an hour drive southwest from where I live and I have always enjoyed visiting since my parents took my siblings and I as kids!  Capitola is a popular tourist destination because of its trendy shops, restaurants, and art galleries all which connect to the popular large sandy beach.  

I spent the day shopping in Capitola Village with my sister and niece.  It was an beautiful sunny day and I was so glad that I brought my Pink Monogram sun hat to keep the sun off my face!  The sun hat comes in a variety of colors!  I chose white with a navy colored monogram but you can mix and match any colors you like!  You can also choose from a variety of different fonts for your monogram which makes this such a nice personalized gift for yourself or a friend!  I also carried my Pink Monogram Chevron tote which came in real handy while we shopped!  I kept my sunscreen, bathing suit, and beach towel in the tote and there was still plenty of room to add a few items I purchased from our shopping excursion!  We enjoyed some time sunbathing on the beach, and ended our day with a casual outdoor dinner at Zelda's!     

If you are planning a visit to the area soon, check out some great accommodations here!  My personal favorite place to stay and probably the most well-known and photographed are the colorful Venetian beach cottages (pictured below) which are privately owned but many rented out as vacation rentals.
