The Missed List - June 2012

Ah, summer. It arrived this month and, like a long-lost love, you welcomed it with open arms.

Together, you enjoy long walks on the beach, poolside cocktails and long nights of, well, summer loving. Looks like things are getting hot and heavy between you two.

This means, of course, that you were too distracted (dare we say blinded?) to stick to your daily routines. Like exercising. Taking out the garbage. Reading Lei Chic.

No sweat. We rounded up four articles you may have missed this month.

It'll be love at first site, all over again.

Built to Sail

Lei Chic It's summertime, which means you and your friends are about to embark on the best vacation ever.

We won't say which one you voted for. But we will say this: We found a way to satisfy all three of you. Sort of.

... in the form of HonHI Handmade's polymer clay jewelry.

Small Wonder

Lei Chic Guess what day it is?

Okay, yeah, it's Wednesday. It's also the start of (cue music)...

Summer, Summer, Summertime.

But before you bust out your bikini and hibachi, there's one thing we want to talk to you about first...

Your bag.

We get that you need your planner. And your bottle of hand sanitizer. And three tubes of lip gloss. And a sewing kit. But lugging all that stuff to a pool party, pau hana, or an outdoor barbecue? So not chic.
