Summer isn’t over yet, and we are soaking up the rays until the weather forces us to stop.

We’re at the pool multiple times a week and are enjoying picnic lunches like crazy.

Our Mer-Sea blanket has given us endless opportunities to be enjoying the sunshine all summer long.

Mer-Sea was built on the simplicity of life. Just like life at the beach, we want simple and we want to unwind. The founders of the company are landlocked where they live in Kansas, so Mer-Sea was their outlet when they were longing for the sound of the waves.

Their creative products are mindfully made with minimal packaging, something we really like about their brand. Not only that, but ALL the profits made from their Sea Change candle goes directly to An organization that brings clean water to people who need it.

The message they have is one they want everyone to see. Each of their products contain little tags with tiny nuggets of wisdom that are designed to uplift those who find them.

This beach blanket is huge – 65 x 87 inches to be exact. It’s perfect for sharing with many people. We bring it to the pool, carry it with us to picnics, and have even used it inside our home.

The cutest feature of the blanket are the fringe rows on either of the edges. It’s seriously adorable and gives the blanket a little extra flare.

A matching tote accompanies the blanket and is dressed in fringe too.

This bag is great. I love the extra long handles, leaving me plenty of room to throw over my shoulder without feeling like its riding in my armpit – that is my pet peeve. Even if my husband carries the bag he has no problem with the bag being up too far in his armpit – perfect!

The bag is really large, which is great for quick pick up. I was nervous that I was going to have to fold the blanket in a specific way in order for it to fit into the bag. I haven’t had that problem at all! Normally I just pick it up, shake it off, and toss it in the bag all jumbled up; the bag doesn’t even feel like its going to burst open.


We don’t live near the beach, but this blanket was made just for that. On the underside of the blanket in each of the corners are little pockets. They are designed to be filled with sand in order to keep the blanket from blowing away. This is such a smart and innovative feature!


The Mer-Sea blanket is such a perfect blanket for a family of any size. There are tons of uses for it, indoors or out. The bag that is included with the blanket is huge and perfect for trips and on the go uses.
