Part 1: Regina Carroll
Happy February, everyone! Is it just me, or is 2020 already going by extremely fast? For this month’s employee picks, I decided to enlist the help of my fantastic friend and manager of Hobie Laguna Beach, Regina! Reggie has worked at Hobie for just about nine years. She just moved to Old Town Orange with her husband and likes to spend her free time wandering the streets of Orange. She also loves to camp and is leaving for a fun little getaway this week! Here are Regina’s top Valentine’s picks.
For the Beach Lover:
- Lspace Ribbed One-Piece ($187)
Regina loves this Lspace suit because it is made of the softest fabric and is super good quality! Its also a fantastic, chic basic, that is perfect for the beach and the pool this summer season!
- 32oz Hydroflask in Fog ($45)
Reggie’s favorite Beach essential is a Hydroflask! They just released a ton of adorable colors, but her favorite is Fog because it’s a little more muted, yet still super fun! They also just introduced dishwasher safe technology, so you can keep it clean, and it’ll last longer!
- Gunn & Swain Mexican Blanket ($48)
One of our new shop favorites is these gorgeous Mexican Blankets! They are all handmade by local artisans and are super heavy duty and cozy blankets! Regina loves the blanket’s fun color patterns! They are the perfect way to spruce any household and make the most fantastic beach blankets.
For the Travel Fanatic:
- Dakine Hardshell Luggage ($195)
Regina likes this luggage because it is carry-on size, which makes it easy for day or weekend trips. She also likes it because it is a little bit more fun than an all-black suitcase, but still is muted. It also has four wheels, which makes it easier to roll around the airport.
For the Scent Lover:
- Broken Top Candle Co. Candle ($24) and Broken Top Candle Co. Perfume ($26)
This is a brand new brand at Hobie, and Regina loves it because of the amazing scent and the adorable packaging! All the candles are soy-based, which makes it safer and more natural. Soy is vegetable wax made from soybeans. The perfumes are all made with three natural ingredients: MCT Oil, Jojaba Oil, and the scent. This is one of the most natural brands and has the most amazing smells!
- Salty Cali Necklace ($36)
These necklaces are all made locally and are the most perfect, dainty, minimalistic jewelry and are perfect for everyday wear. The gold is, also, super good quality and doesn’t look too yellowish-gold. There are a ton of different styles and they are the best for everyday layers.
For the Sneaker Head:
- Old Skool Vans in Green Suede ($65)
This are a brand new Old Skool Style, and Regina likes them because of the updated tongue and the new Vans logo placement. They are made of the most gorgeous and softest suede. Lastly, they are have the Vans Ultra-Cush Suede which makes them perfect for long days on your feet!
