Multihyphenate Issa Rae may be the lead woman for one of this generation's top entertainment companies—Hoorae Media—but she's also a spokesperson for experiencing the fruits of your labor. Often showcasing her "drive the boat" adventures with friends, Rae is no stranger to letting fans in on her fun vacations and getaways.
We've seen her basking in luxury on yachts in Bermuda and even kicking back with her besties to indulge in some of the best taco stands Los Angeles has to offer. No matter the location, the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-verse actress makes it clear that life is to be lived to the fullest—especially with those closest to you.
To keep the vibes going—and to ensure we never have to put the vibes on hold for store runs—Rae recently teamed up with delivery service, Shipt, for a fun summer campaign. In the visuals, Rae lets us in on some of her top "Hot Girl Summer" essentials.
"My schedule is hectic between managing my business ventures and personal life, so it’s important for me to use my time wisely,” said Rae. “That’s why I’m excited to partner with Shipt, a company that allows me to maximize my time in the best way possible. Whether planning for a party or just stocking up on the weekly essentials, I know I can count on Shipt to assist me with the task.”
