Exploring Balboa with Fawn Design

Exploring Balboa with Fawn Design

Back in April we spent the day down in Balboa exploring around the island and admiring all the gorgeous homes right by the beach with Fawn Design.  They are a brand that I have been a big fan of right from the beginning because I think they filled such a need for an amazing diaper bag that is equally beautiful as it is functional.  I find myself grabbing for mine over any of my other bags because it is the most convenient to use and looks more like a purse that I would want to carry around.  The owner, Jenny is such a sweetheart and I look up to her so much for all of the heart and soul she has put into this company for making it what it is today.  They just re-launched their original bags with a completely updated design this past week and I love the new features so much!  There is a handle on top to make grabbing your bag easier, plus a new zipper pocket and storage in the back for a laptop or iPad, and cute new accessories to go with it.  I loved getting to work with this fun group of people in such a beautiful spot we love to visit.  And since it's summertime where lots of you are probably taking vacations to the beach here I listed my favorite things on Balboa Island for you to add to your summer checklist.  Let me know if you have any other favorites to add to it!
