A Toe Ring is a small ring worn on the toe and is very comfortable when fit properly.  

Why you should wear your Beach Toe Ring all year long?

Because just wearing a toe ring reminds you how Beach Babe sexy you really are.

Your guy looks at your feet too, and a tiny little toe ring adds high scores to your sexiness rating ….and your toe ring can be worn every day.

Looking down at your feet in the winter and seeing your toe ring, will make you feel closer to Summertime and the Beach!  

Add a new pedicure, a great pair of sandals’ and it makes you look and feel Beachy Bohemian.

I do however, recommend that you move your toe ring to different toes and to your opposite foot to avoid indentations.

It’s the simple things in life that makes us happy.

Make your plans to visit  our  Beach, and get your Toe Ring on and tell me how it makes you feel.


With Love and Sexyness,

The Carolina Beach Babe

Why do kids love the beach?

Why do kids love the Beach?

If you tell your kids that they are going to the Beach today their faces light up with joy and delight.

Remember when you were a little kid and everything seemed so large? And then when you grew up and saw a room or a chair or a town again…and it was so small?

The Ocean to a child is Humongous! It is so large to them it’s like transporting them to another planet.

The Beach is like nothing they have ever walked on before, except maybe the playground, it moves under their little feet.

To a kid it is a place to yell and play and no one tells them to be quiet! Collecting sea shells to take home great fun!

They can dig a big hole in the sand and stand in it! Burn some of that lively kid energy carrying water from the ocean with a bucket! Build a sandcastle! Explore the beach for sand crabs, hermit crabs and enjoy the shore birds!

The waves are perfect for a great ride on a boogie board. Kids can swim in the waves and play in the sun for hours.

(Be sure to keep applying that sunscreen!)

The Beach is where a kid can be a kid, enjoy nature and get to know our majestic Blue Planet up close and in person. Teaching children about Mother Nature when they are young encourages them to appreciate and understand the importance of taking care of our fragile eco-system.

With Love and sand in your toes,Image
