Every time I pull out my beach bag, I get very excited! It means the beach, or relaxing poolside, is in the very near future! Tiffany and I are getting ready for an HOH adventure to the beautiful island of Nevis. Check out my beach bag must have essentials.
- UV Aero Broad -Spectrum SPF 45 Continuous Spray
- UV Daily Broad – Spectrum SPF 40 Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen
- UV Lip Balm Broad – Spectrum SPF 31
I just love the Elta MD products. Elta protects your skin against the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays. Using a ultra-durable form of zinc oxide, Elta MD supplies long-lasting protection against damage that can lead to premature signs of aging, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer.
This powder gives you protection from sun damage with a soft focus finish. I like to apply the Elta MD Facial sunscreen as my base and then use the Colorescience Mineral Suncreen throughout the day. It has a self-dispensing powder brush which makes it easy to re-apply all day for continued coverage.
3. Beach Jewels
- Foundation Bracelet in Pink by Stella and Dot
- Love Bracelet by Stella and Dot
- Milana Tassel Bracelet by Stella and Dot
- Wanderlust Triple Wrap by Stella and Dot
Don’t forget to take your arm party to the beach! A sparkly arm is a perfect accessory to a itty bitty bikini.
- Tory Burch Polarized Aviator Sunglasses
Aviator’s are a classic style and look great on just about everyone. Tory Burch makes a bad a$$ aviator. Make sure you buy a pair that is polarized. Polarized sunglasses have a special coating that helps reduce glare from reflective surfaces. Objects are much clearer and the harmful effects of glare on the eyes are reduced.
5. Floppy Hat
- Florabella Wide Brim Hat from Everything but Water
Usually I kick it with a baseball hat at the beach. Since we will be in Nevis, I have to be extra fancy and wear my big floppy hat, aka my JLO hat! One thing that is great about this hat is that it is packable and bounces right back to its original shape.
6. IPhone and IPad
This is really a no-brainer. Does anyone ever go anywhere without these two beloved items? Our dependence on gadgets has made their presence at the beach or poolside a regular occurrence (just make sure you keep them dry).
Pull together some of these beach bag essentials for yourself and tuck them in a fab beach tote.
I hope Nevis can handle a couple of crazy girls from Texas! Nevis, consider yourself warned….it will be fun!
