Beach Bag Essentials

Y’all! I’m totally obsessed with Taylor over at The Daily Tay, so today we are going to share our take on beach bag essentials!
I always love the “what’s in my bag” posts so I figured it was about time I make my own. So if you would open my Henri Bendel beach bag right now this is what you’d find.
You guys I’m totally kidding. That might be what you’d find in my bag if I had a perfect life and could afford a $250 beach bag.
Let’s be honest, if you open my “beach bag” right now what you would actually find would be ten plastic bags used for picking up after Har, two old chap-sticks covered in sand, and probably an empty bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.  I wish I was fancy enough to have a “what’s in my bag” post, but I think we all know by now that I’m not.

This week I thought I would share with you what’s in my beach bag. Now this is an interesting post, because I have already been to the beach this summer. These items are MUST-HAVES & totally edited based on what I wished I had on the beach ;)

A cute beach bag is obvious! I honestly don’t even remember where I got this one, but it’s huge & I LOVE IT!
I used my favorite beach towel as the background in these pictures!

1. Bobble Water Bottle–it totally has a filter in the lid, so you can fill it up and not have to worry about yucky water! LOVE the style, love the color!
2. Your favorite magazine–my favorites include: InStyle, People StyleWatch, & Lucky
3. A spray bottle–THIS is the one item that I did not take to the beach with me & I wish I had. When you don’t want to get in the ocean water & it’s SUPER hot, you need a way to stay cool. HINT: fill it up with ice water so it will stay cool all day ;)
4. Supergoop Sunscreen–here’s where I will be your annoying

pharmacy studentmom & tell you how much you should take care of your skin! I promise, it’s worth it! And this supergoop is what I use for extra protection on my face.

5. Your favorite sunscreen–I have to use banana boat for my all over sunscreen, because I’m super allergic to anything else! Spray is great, just be sure to cover well & REAPPLY every 2-3 hours or anytime you get wet.
6. Your iPhone & earbuds
7. Clinique Moisturizing Lotion–I use this before applying sunscreen to be sure to keep my face from breaking out or drying out!
8. Bug spray–bugs love me, I don’t know why. There ARE bugs on the beach you guys, so don’t forget the spray!
9. Bluetooth speaker–we totally hung this speaker from our umbrella & jammed out!
10 & 11. Lip care–be sure to include something clear for moisture then cover with something fun for color!
12. Ray-Bans–the favorite. I promise if you haven’t gotten a pair, save up & do it. BEST decision I ever made. They go with any outfit.
