When it comes to the beach I like to keep it simple, here’s a look at what’s in my beach bag and my absolute essentials for a beach day.
What’s In My Beach Bag
Duh, this is a no brainer but good sunscreen is tricky. A few weeks ago I got burned…literally burned by some sunscreen I thought I could trust. I was using your typical spray on sunscreen by Banana Boat and it was horrible. I have never had a worse burn in my life. After A LOT of research, I came across Coola, which was suggested by many of you.
I grabbed the typical body lotion from Coola and then decided to give spray another chance with the Coola Mineral Body Spray. I was hesitant but this spray sunscreen is like no other. The nozzle is very direct so you won’t find it get carried away in the wind and it sprays on white. Since it goes on white you can actually see where it’s going and rub it. Once you start rubbing it turns transparent but this is perfect to ensure you didn’t miss any spots. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
A Good Book
This is my book club book this month, so of course, I need something to keep me occupied. People watching is also a favorite past time at the beach as well.
After getting so burned I take all the precautions and started wearing hats to the beach or pool. There is nothing worse than your face or scalp getting burnet.
Also a no brainer!
Either water shoes or sandals whatever you prefer! This day was sandals, but typically I’m all about the water shoes. Read about my favorite ones here.
Water + Alcoholic Beverages for sure and cooler depending on how long you’ll be there!
To drown out the people talking or to enjoy some summertime tunes. Here’s my current favorite playlist…thanks Lilly!
