Kids’ Summer Camp Essentials

Summer camp

Every year, across the USA, millions of children head off to different summer camps, focussing on everything from tennis to space travel for a few weeks over the summer. No matter what sort of camp your children may be attending this year, these are some of the essentials that they should be bringing with them.

Sun Protection
Your kids are likely to be spending more time than usual outdoors while at summer camp, making it essential for them to have the best sun protection possible. From sunscreen to sun hats to sunglasses to after sun gel, be sure to make sun protection a priority when packing for camp.

Waterproof Coat and Boots
Even if the weather is forecast to be bright and sunny for the entire time that your child will be away, you need to ensure that they have some waterproof clothing for any spontaneous downpours. A waterproof coat and a pair of waterproof boots are sufficient, although you may want to include more waterproof items if they are going to be spending their time near water.

Clothing
Everyday clothing is essential at camp, with the type of clothing depending on the type of camp your kid is attending. If the camp has merchandised clothing for sale, it may be worth buying an item for your child, as this may help them settle in even faster.

Nightwear and Underwear
The amount of nightwear and underwear that your child needs to bring depends on how long they will be spending away from home. To help keep underwear organized, store it in a net bag, and pack your child a spare, empty net bag that they can then fill with used underwear.

Toiletries
Toiletries are another essential and are easy to pack in one smaller bag to keep them all organized. In addition to a toothbrush, toothpaste and shower products, include a few extras, such as lip balm, hair ties, a nail clipper, a razor and feminine hygiene products.

Others
There are plenty of other essentials that your child may need, such as insect repellent, a camera, a flashlight and a refillable water bottle. Do not forget to include some pre-stamped and addressed envelopes, as well as writing paper and pens, to encourage your children to write home about their adventures. When it comes to spending money, each camp will have their own policy, so be sure to check with them first. It is also a good idea to include a couple of mementos to remind your children of home, whether this may be a couple of toys from their room or some family photos as this will help them out if they ever start to feel homesick.

Summer camp is often considered to be a right of passage for American children, and with over 12,000 camps across the country, it is easy for kids to find one that offers something that they are passionate about. Each camp usually provides a list of items that children need to bring, as well as others that they should not, so be sure to follow this list carefully in order for your child to be well-prepared for the weeks ahead.

What the Celebrities Wear Under Their Sexy Outfits – OROGOLD Reviews

A-listers walking the red carpet in fabulous couture gowns may seem extremely glamorous, but, what you may not realize is, many of those celebrities actually need some extra help looking that fantastic in their dresses. From a much-loved pair of Spanx to a double-sided Hollywood Fashion Tape, OROGOLD reviews exactly what it is that the celebrities wear under their sexy outfits.

What the Celebrities Wear Under Their Outfits

Spanx
Spanx are one of the most common shapewear products, and are worn by so many different celebrities to help them squeeze into tight outfits. Curvy reality star Kim Kardashian admits to having to wear two pairs of the control pants in order to fit into some of her skin tight dresses, while Katherine Heigl wore spanx underneath her wedding dress. Oprah Winfrey has even named spanx as one of ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’, and has even stated that rather than wearing underwear, she wears spanx every day. From bodysuits to shorts to full-length bottoms, spanx come in many different forms and are the go-to garment for many celebrities. For those of you who are looking to invest more into your shapewear, take a look at the garments on offer by dMondaine, as these are a more luxurious, couture alternative to spanx that are favored by celebrities such as Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara and Kelly Osbourne.

Hollywood Fashion Tape
Hollywood Fashion Tape is a clear, double-sided tape that can be applied to fabric, as well as your body, helping to hold your whole look together and to keep your dress from falling away from your bust. Worn by many celebs who have chosen a low-cut dress, the tape works best for petite women who have smaller busts.

The Shibue
The Shibue is a strapless panty that doesn’t have any lines, as it is simply a piece of fabric that twists underneath your private parts, and is held together by a soft silicone gel at the front and at the back, which is washable and reusable. The Shibue, which is great value for money, has gained a huge celebrity following from the likes of Kate Upton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey. It comes in a range of colors and is the ideal solution for those of you who want to wear a sheer or thigh-bearing dress without the risk of going completely commando. For those of you who aren’t comfortable enough to wear the Shibue, ORO GOLD suggests opting for a seamless, nude panty instead.

Minimizer Bra
A well-tailored classic white shirt is always a sexy option, and is a go-to look for many celebrities, such as Jennifer Aniston. However, the problems occur when the shirt is buttoned and begins to pucker, turning a chic, effortless look into a sloppy outfit. A minimizer bra can help to solve this, as it disperses the breast tissue from the middle of the body, preventing fabrics and buttons from puckering.

As fabulous and fashion-forward most of the outfits we see on the red carpet may seem, many of the celebrities that wear them need some extra help to keep their outfits looking so flawless. From classic shapewear to innovative underwear solutions, keep these options in mind the next time you are wearing a celebrity-worthy gown.
