We're so excited to welcome a longtime friend of Cabana Life Annie Long Sullivan! 

Hi Cabana Life crew!

It’s Annie ( here and I’m here to introduce myself as your resident bookworm. I’m so excited to be showing up here on the Cabana Life blog, sharing books that I love and that I think you will, too.  

A little more about me: I’m a total beach bum, a super reader and a longtime friend of Cabana Life.

On that note, let me back up a bit and share my Cabana Life story with you. 

In 2012, I discovered Cabana Life via a friend who was hosting a trunk show.  As a mother of four very fair children who spent summers on the beach, I was thrilled to find sun protective clothing that was cute for them and stylish for me. Previously, I had literally been wearing a men’s rashguard to cover up!

I was introduced to the Cabana Life founders Melissa & Alyssa, and as three energetic, entrepreneurial women tend to do, we totally hit it off. I decided to jump in & join them in the business, creating a trunk show program for Cabana Life.  Get ready for the not-so-humblebrag, but at one point I was able to outpace a few months of e-commerce sales with just ONE trunk show.  (Damn!)

I am happiest when I’m on the beach (in my Cabana Life bikini, of course), crushing my TBR (to be read) pile and hanging with my (now pretty grown-up) kiddos.

I’m looking forward to sharing all the latest books that you need to have in your beach bag. 

Happy reading!
