Beach / Pool Essentials

beachbag

Boring bits like towels, clothes and sandals I didn’t bother including because we want to get to the good stuff right? I’m testing out different SPF’s for the face so I’ll get back to you with that but I promise I do protect my face! As for the actual bag it’s from a Sephora event and It acts as a good beach/pool bag. I bring my bathing suit of course which is from Target and this was purchased a few years back so I’m afraid it isn’t available anymore. I also bring my sunnies which are the RayBan Aviators in gold. For my body I’ve been using Hawaiin Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion with SPF 30, this stuff smells heavenly! It’s suppose to moisturize and protect at the same time and I can vouch for that because it does exactly what it claims to do. Next I like to protect my locks and for that I’ve been using L’oreal Color Vibrancy Dual Protect Spray. I dye my hair black and have found that laying out has caused it to turn red in certain spots. The L’oreal spray contains UV filters and heat protects up to 450F. I don’t wear makeup at all on my face but I will curl my lashes and apply Maybelline’s Full & Soft Waterproof Mascara. I love the mascara wand and the effect of natural yet defined lashes. For lips I will use Jack Black’s Lip Balm with SPF 25, some people often neglect their lips but they’re super sensitive and can burn easily. I always bring some kind of body spray or perfume sample with me and I love the fresh clean scent of Jo Malone’s Grapefruit Cologne. I bring a bottle of water to cool off and magazines for a read if I’m laying out. My iPhone 5 serves as my music player and don’t forget to bring some buds, no one wants to hear you blasting music  trust me! Last but not least I bring some bobby pins and a hair tie to wrap my hair into a top knot. I try to keep my bag to a minimum of just the necessities, things can get lost or stolen and I can’t be bothered with guarding my bag like a crazy person! So away I go hydrated, protected and prepared!
