WHAT’S IN MY BAG | BEACH BAG ESSENTIALS

Summer solstice is in a few days so I thought it fitting to do a little what’s in my beach bag post.  Everyone has there own ideas of what’s important to pack for a day at the beach.  Here are some things I always like to have with me when I hit the sand.

beach bag essentials

SUNSCREEN: Since I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned how important it is to take care of my skin which includes when I’m outdoors.  I always always always use a cream with an SPF and add sunscreen to the rest of my body. I can’t express this enough!  Growing up in Florida I’ve seen lots of people go from having young soft skin to a leathery and wrinkled skin.  So not appealing!  Not only can this happen but skin cancer is a real thing too!  So please please please take care of your skin and wear sunscreen you’ll be so glad you did!  Ok, that’s enough ranting from me.  When it comes to sunscreen, I like to use Coola, Super Goop (this one is a self-tanner with sunscreen), Sun Bum.

HAT: I’ve been obsessed with straw hats lately!  I’ve been sporting this one here and I love this one also.  It’s also another great way to keep the sun off your face…SUNNIES: I wear my Round Panthos Ray-Bans every day! They are my absolute faves! 

HAIR ACCESSORIES: Gotta have something to tame my wild hair with!  I like these here.

CHAPSTICK: I’ve recently discovered a coconut chapstick by Sephora that has my lips feeling smooth and moisturized.

TOWEL: When it comes to beach towels I have a few go-to towels.  I like Pendleton brand towels because their super plush, round towels for their shape, and Turkish towels to easily shake off the sand.

 Can’t wait to get to the beach!  Do you live near a beach or have some pro-tips to pack in your beach bag?  Please feel free to share them in the comments below!

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

  • I love stripes and have literally been gravitating towards them for everything in my wardrobe lately! So does this make me part zebra or tiger? 🤷🏼‍♀️❤️🦓 🐅

Yesterday on the blog, I put a super simple DIY tutorial on framed greenery. These also make pretty gifts in case you need to pull together a last minute Mother’s Day present. Wishing y’all the best Sunday! 🌿❤️

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
