Beachy-Keen: Essentials for Your Beach Bag

In preparing for my beach vacation I had to plan what I was going to pack. One essential for me was going to be my beach bag and I needed it to contain everything that I would need while relaxing in the sun and the surf of the Florida waves. I thought long and hard on just what my beach bag essentials were going to be. I think you will agree with me.

First of all you definitely need to protect yourself while in the sun so SPF is a must for your body, face, and lips. Be prepared and ready to reapply. After some fun in the ocean you are going to want that beach towel. While relaxing in the sand you are going to want some great beach reads (check out our blog later this week for our must have beach reads list). Other essential items for your beach bag include some sunglasses and water, you need to stay hydrated while out in the sun. You might also want a hair tie to pull your hair out of your face. If you plan on doing any shelling, you are going to need a pail for those pretty sea shells.
I'm officially on my beach vacation. Sorry that it will be a little while before I am able to comment you again, but I will catch up when I get back from my vacation. Will you be able to get away to the beach this summer?

  10. Love those sparkle hair ties! They're so fun to wear.

  11. I always forget to bring something to the beach when I'm dragged along to it. I'm...not really a beach person, so I guess it's not surprising. I'm hopefully not going to the beach this year - the nearest one is Lake Erie and I'd rather not go to a 'beach' where there are a ton of dead fish. Eurgh. Hope y'all are having fun!


  12. i will definitely be hitting the beach this summer! can't wait. i always have magazines in my beach bag!

  13. I have really found this post to be much interesting in its genre and would like to appreciate it as a beautifully written article. This write-up has sincerely gained its archetypal information in a brilliant manner, and it is highly supported by its language and verbosity of the content.
