Our Similar Pick: Puffs Plus Lotion Facial Tissues, Pack of 8

Price:$14.00

"I always keep an outdoor essentials kit in my purse to ensure I’m prepared, especially for those moments when my seasonal allergy symptoms flare up, which can make me look – and feel – horrible. Lotion-treated tissues are gentle after you’ve been sneezing all day and help keep the area around my nose from getting sore. Waterproof mascara is another essential that stays on no matter how itchy my eyes get after I’ve been outdoors. I also take ZYRTEC® and always keep it with me to help manage my allergy symptoms. I like it because it starts working at hour one the first day you take it and keeps my allergy symptoms in check. I also always bring large sunglasses to prevent my eyes from getting watery and itchy."

Our Similar Pick: Lace Burlap Mason Jars

Price:$18.00

"I absolutely love entertaining my friends and family outdoors for al fresco meals, whether it’s hosting a barbeque on my new patio, a picnic in the park or outdoor movie night with my girlfriends, complete with lots of popcorn! I also love making flower arrangements for dinners I’m hosting or as fun hostess gifts. The key is to combine colors and textures in unique ways. When I’m styling an outdoor space, I also try to find ways to make it look great without triggering my allergy symptoms. For example, you can make a gorgeous arrangement just by using citrus fruits and greens! You can also check out blooms that are known to be easier on seasonal allergies like hibiscus, hydrangea and viburnum, or even succulents. Using mason jars or burlap accessories keep the feeling natural, and it’s nice to have pieces at different heights to add depth. And again, I never head outside without my ZYRTEC®. It gives me consistent relief, so I don’t have to miss out on the things I enjoy."
