The beach is one of my favorite places to be, especially during the summertime. I would sit on the beach all week if I could! Since I basically get onto the beach and don’t leave for the whole day, I have come up with some essentials for my beach bag that you all should check out!
First things first, if you’re going to be sitting on the beach all day, you need some sunscreen! Of course, we all like getting a tan at the beach, but always make sure you have at least some SPF on. My favorite tanning oil is Banana Boat because it prevents me from getting burnt but also gives me a great tan in just one day of beach time. After the beach, I love to put on my Hawaiian Tropic After Sun. It has aloe in the lotion that feels so cooling, especially if you do get a burn!
While you let that tanning oil soak in, one of my favorite things to do on the beach is read. I always love reading an inspirational book. This last beach trip I chose to read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, which talks about women leaning in the work place and going after a career they truly want even if it means breaking out of their shell.
After reading my book, I love listening to music. I always find new music before going to the beach. Another thing I love listening to is the CollegeFashionista Office Hours podcasts! Once the beach day is over, the best thing to wear is a comfy oversize sweater, cute bralette, and a pair of cute shorts.
