Aside from the obvious cute swimsuit and cover-up I have put together a list of my must haves for the beach or the pool. I would also include a must have beach read, but I feel like that’s kind of obvious for me so just message me if you want to know my favs! Right now I’m reading ‘If I Stay’ by Gayle Forman, and I’m giving it two thumbs up so far! I included some suggestions that are on my wishlist in each category or things that I already love, but I’d love to hear what your favorites are too!
1. A Beach Bag – you have to have a cute tote to fit all of your must haves…duh.

3. Headphones – Gotta have my tunes!

4. Sunscreen – Protect your skin! I wear this moisturizer on my face every day, but if you are out in the sun make sure to use an SPF all over. Sun Bum smells soooo good!

5. Beach Towel – Just a must have, so why not get a cute one.

6. Hair-Ties – I love these hair ties because they are easy on your hair and have the cutest patterns.

7. Lip-Balm – If my lips are chapped I hate my life. These are two of my favorite lip balms. Both balms come in a plain color, but they have really cute tinted colors if you want to add a little color! I love that the Sugar brand has SPF added as well, to protect your pucker!

8. Re-Usable Water Bottle – Gotta stay hydrated out in the sun. I love these glass water bottles because they keep your drink cold and the pop top makes it easy to get in and out of. I only take these to the gym now too!

9. Hat – Another way to block the sun and look super stylish while doing it.
