My Top 7 Beach Essentials

Hello Friends,

I am a just a little excited today because tomorrow starts my week long Vaca in Mexico!! As you can imagine I am frantically trying to get everything done before we leave.  I have to tell you that I love to travel, like love, love, love it!! But I really hate to pack and I am not a good packer at all.  I usually bring way too much stuff and I have promised myself every time I go to Mexico that I am only going to pack swimsuits and dresses because thats all I end up in the whole time.  But I have already broken my promise because my suitcase is jam packed! 

There are a few things that I will not go without when heading to the beach and I thought I would let you in on my must haves for a beach getaway!!Beach Essentials

Top 7 Essentials:

1. A Hat! I have to admit that up until a few years ago I really didn’t wear a hat for sun protection, but as I am starting to see brown spots on my face that won’t go away I have become more religious about this.  It’s also great for that wet messy hair after you’ve been in the pool! I found this hat at Buckle last summer and it instantly became my new fave! I love the bright colors and of course the saying on the front!!hat

2. Speaking of sun, You’ve got to have a good sunscreen.  I will use about any sunscreen for my body, but when it comes to my face I will only use something especially for my face! I love this SkinCeuticals Face lotion that I got from my esthetician.  It goes on smooth and light and does not have much of an odor.sunscreen

3. Lip gloss, of course!! I love my MAC lipgloss.  It stays on, even when I get in the water! I love this nude pink color, it’s called paper lantern. It’s natural shade gives just a shear shimmer and makes that tan look even better!

4. A pair of sunglasses! I unfortunately like a little more expensive sunglass, but I have found that at times they can get scratched and even lost while at the beach.  I think I have decided on this trip to go buy some nice, but inexpensive shades so I don’t need to worry about it.sunglasses

5. Have you tried ICE drinks? I am a lover of sparkling water and my niece introduced me to these a few weeks ago.  They are so delicious and refreshing.  Zero calories and they even have a little green tea and a bit a caffeine for a pick me up! This is the Target off brand pink grapefruit and it is so good.  They are great mixed for a low cal cocktail too! I will definitely be packing a few of these!sparkling water

6. Hair ties, you never can have too many! That’s it!hair ties

7. A beach bag.  Why, yes, you will need something to carry all these goodies in? And why not find something fun and colorful? I saw this bag at Target and it screamed beach and Mexico to me.  It is large enough to fit all my essentials and then some.  There is nothing worse than a small beach bag, so if in doubt always go bigger.  I am sure you will think of things to fill it!beach bag
