Use The Sun To Keep Your Devices Charged With This Solar Chargervia Amazon
A solar charger should be one of the first pieces of survival gear that you get.

Should anything happen during a camping trip or a hike, you're going to want to call for help. But you can't do that if your phone is dead. Use the sun to charge your devices with this solar charger. When fully charged, you can charge an iPhone up to 6-10 times and a tablet up to 3-4 times.
These Stylishly Square Sunglasses That Won't Break The Bankvia Amazon
I stopped buying designer sunglasses years ago. Why? Because you can always find designer-esque sunglasses for a fraction of the price — like these stylish square ones. Not only are they trendy, but they're also less than $20. That means you can grab a pair for yourself, a second pair for yourself (why not — you deserve it), then maybe another for a friend.
These Apple Earpods with a Headphone Jack for Those of Us Who Hate Bluetooth
I've been using Apple's Ear Pods since their release, and I've gotta say, I'm a huge fan. I've gone through four pairs in 10 years, which considering my aptitude for breaking and/or losing earbuds, is pretty impressive.

This Transparent Crossbody Is Super Groovyvia Amazon
This crossbody bag may easily be one of the most unique purses that I have ever come across, and I can't get enough of it.

And the transparent body of the bag can also be used as a crossbody or handheld purse for days when you just feel like letting the world see everything you have on you.
These Transparent Pouches Keep Me Organizedvia Amazon
I bought a set of these Transparent Pouches last year, and I've found so many uses for them that I'm ordering a second set. I use them in my purse and work bag to organize makeup and other small things, and I also keep one in my car for odds and ends.

This Dash Mount Phone Holder Keeps It In Placevia Amazon
I have one of those vent mount phone holders I use when needing directions, but it always falls out annoyingly. This dash mount phone holder is a much better option because the phone stays put and keeps the map easy to read so you don't accidentally cause a crash while you're trying to retrieve your fallen phone! It's held in place by five grippy tabs, so your phone isn't going anywhere even if you take corners above the speed limit or drive down a bumpy road.
This Tote Bag Can Hold Everything You Ownvia Amazon

The Orbiter Dash Mount Kit includes a steel ball socket that attaches to your dash. It'll hold your phone magnetically in place, making it easy to rotate it in every direction for a full view while you drive. The magnet is powerful and holds your phone securely so it won't fall or get damaged.
A Crossbody For Day And Nightvia Amazon
I'm a big purse gal myself, and trust me, I tried to get onboard the tiny crossbody wagon and fell off after realizing I just needed access to all my stuff.

Triple zippers on the top give you multiple pockets to stash everything, and it comes in a variety of colors, from traditional brown and black to summer-ready yellow and orange.

These Sunglasses Are A Serious Throwbackvia Amazon
Normally I wouldn't even consider sunglasses like these. Not that I don't think they're absolutely adorable, but I have a hard time envisioning how to style them. However, after seeing tons of people on Instagram wearing glasses like these, I can't get enough of them. They look old school in the best way possible and make a great accessory to dress up any outfit.
