Summer is coming and what better time for a Giveaway featuring a Sunny Jim Sunshade and Beach Mat!

We tried out the Sunny Jim sunshade and beach mat and were really impressed with the size, air flow and shade (UPF50+) it provided.

It comes with a yoga bag to carry your sunshade, beach mat and accessories easily.

The Sunny Jim Sunshade with Yoga Bag is the ultimate in chic and functional sun protection. Boasting the highest UV rating available on the market (UPF50+), it is practical, lightweight, easy to erect and comes with a matching yoga bag.

Durable, light weight fabric and thick inside bag wall lining provide added strength and durability. Fully lined inside. 
Only available with matching Sunny Jim Sunshade.
