For over a year now I have wanted a Fab Fit Fun subscription and since I have a job again I decided to get one. No this is not a payed review nor did they ask me to do one. This is just my personal thoughts on my first box and over all the company. So since I just got my box as I'm opening it I decided to share my thoughts with you.
First Impressions; you probably have the seen the outside design of this box either from Instagram or a youtuber's summer Fab Fit Fun box unboxing if you are impatient like me. If you haven't seen the box it screams summer from the design to the colors and it's perfect for the season. It's so colorful and slightly reminds me of a lily pulitzer design. Now, inside the box the beautiful design and colors continue and a Fab Fit Fun magazine is on top.
The first thing that caught my eye was the Summer & Rose beach towel since it is the biggest thing the box. This beach towel retails for $55 and here's why. Fab Fit Fun collaborated with the model and blogger Rocky Barnes to create this giant towel. These towels come in two very summer like designs. Even though I just got a new beach towel from Aerie I'm excited to have another so when one is being washed I have a back up. The towels are made from microfibers and they say the sand won't stick to it. Since I just got it I haven't tested it yet. So I am excited to test it and be basic and get cute instagrams with it.
Next Item is something I have been thinking of purchasing myself for quite some time now. That is the Tarte Tartiest Pro Glow pallet which retails for $45. I have been putting off buying this pallet for so long because I usually found something I wanted more. Or I did not go in the store to buy the pallet but I knew it was something I would eventually buy and now I'm glad I didn't. Just like anyone else I had to swatch the highlighters on my hand. This pallet definitely lives up to its name and I can't wait to play with it some more.
On to the next item which is the ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel and it reatails for $45. I have never actually tried or heard of this product, but I am looking forward to trying it. It says that this product is a rinse off cream made with exfoliating papaya, nourishing milk protein, and moisturizing vitamin E. It is supposed to leave your skin soft, revitalized, and radiant.
The next item is a little smaller but still adorable that is the Minor History Post Script Wallet which retails for $20. This little wallet/ wristlet in tan and peach is definitely going to be useful during baseball games. Since I don't like taking my big wallet with me to my brother's games I like sticking to wristlets. This is the perfect size to have for my money ad I.D and small enough to stick in my little purse I take with me.
Next item is a jewelry item and its a ring from the brand Erth Tu Y Yo Ring and it retails for $55. This is a gold plated ring that features two naturally cultured fresh water pearls set in a classic modern design. This little ring definitely goes along with the Summer theme of the box and is good to wear year around. It's the perfect little accessory that can either dress up or dress down any outfit.
This next product is something that if I knew about before Fab Fit Fun I would ask for it for Christmas instead of buying it for myself. This is the FOREO LUNA fofo which retails for $89. This little face cleanser brush is not any ordinary brush with its bluetooth technology and advanced skin sensors to create a personalized profile of your skin which is sent to your phone in the new FOREO LUNA app. The app is available in the App Store and Google Play, but since I am strictly an Apple girl the App Store is where I got the app from. I did test out this little device as soon as I could and could feel a difference in my skin after using it more than washing my face with my hands. Even if you don't have a Fab Fit Fun subscription it is something you should check out as well as the brand. But, I forgot to mention that FOREO LUNA teamed up with Fab Fit Fun for th exclusive launch of this product and app. So I'm not 100% sure if they are selling it right now but its worth checking for. Also, they do come in a ton of colors but I did not get to pick which color I got which is absolutely fine because I got the purple one.
The next item is a product I have tried before through BirchBox and it will be very good for the Summer season. It's from the brand Coola and its there Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer. The sunscreen that doubles as a moisturizer like a lot of sunscreens and is an 80 minute water resistant. Its also made with 70% organic ingredients and it retails for $32.
The last item is small but is a room decor piece. I actually thought it was a coaster at first but it is a Marble Ring Dish from Pier 1 Imports. I am actually planning on re-doing my room and adding a few marble pieces so this a good little piece to help me get started. Now all of my rings are from Pandora so I don't necessarily feel comfortable putting them on display. So, instead I put my little glass bottle of perfume on it. So even though I'm not really using it for what its for its still really cute and it retails for $14.99.
All together the total value of this box can be between $321.99 - $367.99 so to receive all that I did in this box for only $49.00 is a really good deal. I think this box is absolutely worth it and has some really great products in it. Something I didn't mention in the beginning I believe for every seasons box Fab Fit Fun teams up with a charity. For Summer's box they teamed up with the Wildlife Conservation Society and because of that they added a little conversation straw to support ad promote this Charity. Which you can search and Find out more about. But, over all for my first box I do love it and I'm very excited and can't wait for my Fall box.
It’s Summer Time and everyone including myself is excited. I don’t know about anyone one else but once Christmas is over I’m definitely ready for Summer. Since this beautiful season is here I decided to share some of the life hacks I used last year. But, also plan this year as well I feel like this is the perfect time of year. To test out all those D.I.Y’s and life hacks you find on Pinterest. So here are five of them for you to try.
Number one, we all know that if you are sitting by a pool or at the beach you usually have an open bottle or can of soda or juice. You usually are trying to keep an eye on the bottle to make sure no bugs or anything else are going in it. So, to avoid that problem and not having to worry about it through the day, take a cupcake holder and cut a little hole in it and place it on top, add a straw and you are good to go. I know you can actually find rubber can top covers on amazon as well but this will save some money. Why not just use what you more than likely already have in your house?
Number two, I have tried this one once at a friend's house. There is a pretty good chance that during the Summer or when it's hot in general you could end up getting burned. Once you get burned you're going to reach for the aloe to soothe it. I'm not sure about anyone else but I like my aloe cold so we keep it in our fridge. But if you are in a huge need for cold aloe you can take a basic nice tray or one that makes cute shapes and freeze the aloe in those. That way when you're burnt and wanting instant cold aloe relief you have some nice aloe ice cubes. I am totally the person to use the more cuter ice trays like the ones in the shape of dolphins.
The next one is great for the hot summer days when you are spending it in the pool and that is floating cooler. Now I would suggest this one more to people who have there own private pool. Public pools see have more rules than you would for your own pool. But if you get I would say a medium sized container. Then, take a pool noodle and cut it in to four equal sized pieces that fit the size of the container. Then put those on a rope and tie them around the container and fill it with ice and drinks. You have a floating cooler for yourself and your guest when unwilling to leave the pool for an ice cold drink
Number four, now I know they make water proof cases for phone now but I personally I don’t want to spend $80 on a case I’ll probably only use during the Summer. So I know this one is probably really well known. To protect your phone from getting wet at the beach, pool, or any other water activity you’re doing put your phone in a plastic sandwich bag. It protects your phone perfectly fine and is a lot cheaper than any waterproof phone case.
The last one is more of a snack life hack. Now I know when if your at the beach or pool you more than likely bring snacks with you. This one I have not had a chance to try my self yet, but I will be trying it. If you want to keep your snacks fresh like chips or crackers or you don’t want sand on them then you can use an empty bottle of coffee creamer as snack storage. Since most coffee creamer bottles have lids that snap shut you can just lift up the lid and shake out the snack without getting sand on them. Snap it shut to keep it fresh. This great because if your at the beach more sand is probably ending up in your mouth than wanted.
Since Summer is now here it is the perfect time to try d.i.y’s and life hacks. All of the life hacks came from Pinterest so you can definitely find more on there along with a lot more Summer activities. It will keep you from being completely board this Summer and what I will be doing to keep my self entertained. So I hope these were helpful and if you haven’t already you will try a few.
Recently I have bought two new pallets from Tarte, which made me realize I have quite a few pallets by Tarte. I am going to only review two of them today; the Mermaid pallet and the Aspyn Ovard pallet. So I figured why not review both of them since one pallet is more natural and the other is more colorful.
So let’s start with the Mermaid pallet which I have a had a little longer and used a little more because of that. First the packaging which is adorable and they did a good job with the design. It’s a gradient teal and magenta that’s metallic and has scales imprinted on the box giving the effect of a mermaid or fish tale. The pallet itself is in the shape of a shell with gold, teal, and green mettalic detailing. Now inside the pallet which is also metallic gold it has some beautiful colors for the summer. The eyeshadow colors range from a deep red to a teal blue to gold. Two of my favorite colors in this pallet are bubbles and salt water. Saltwater is more of a mauve or rose pink with a ton of shimmer in it and Bubbles is a light red color with a ton of blue iridescent shimmer in it. I use these two shades every time I use this pallet. This pallet has an endless amount of shimmer choices but it also has matte options as well. I think that this pallet has some good color options from pinks, reds, blues, and golds. Its the perfect pallet to play with during the summer but also through the rest of the year as well. I know definitely this pallet is available on the Tarte website but I believe it is only sold in store at Ulta and it was $34. I really do love this pallet and have been using it a lot and will continue using it through the year.
Now the Aspyn Ovard eye and cheek pallet, I have been following Aspyn's blog, YouTube channel, and Instagram for some time now. So when I heard she created a pallet with Tarte I knew straight away I was going to be getting it. It actually took me almost two weeks to get this pallet because every time I went to Ulta to buy it, It was already sold out. So I finally got my hands on one the last one in the store on Monday. Again, lets start with the packaging which is gorgeous and girly with the rose gold color and floral pattern. Along with Aspyn herself a lot of the youtubers I watch who went to the launch of her pallet all comment about how the back of it could be used as mirror its self. Which they are right about you could definitely use it as a mirror if you wanted to even though there is a mirror on the inside. The inside is of course rose gold as well with like most pallets the mirror on the top and the actual make up on the bottom. Since this is an eye and cheek pallet there is a really pretty deep rose blush called Made You Blush. It is a more neutral blush for the days you're looking to go really natural, but it's not too harsh of a color if you wanted to have it be a little darker for a more glam look. The highlighter named Pure Soul is great again for those days you want to go natural and just need a little pop. But, it's also good for when you are really looking for your highlight to be popping since both the blush and highlight are layer-able and blend easily. Moving on to the eyeshadow there are four shimmers in the shades Heart Of Gold, Wanderlust, Brilliance, and Endless Summer. Then there are five matte shades named High School Sweetheart, Road trip, Married Life, and Santorini Sands. I think my favorite shimmer is Heart of Gold and my favorite matte is High School Sweet Heart. This pallet is definitely good for natural and glam looks it just depends on what your feeling. Overall I love this pallet and can wait to try out more looks with it and again this one as well is on the Tarte website but also available at Ulta for $39.
I know this was really long but I wanted to make sure I could get what I thought about each pallet out of my head and shared here. So which pallet are you more likely to purchase the Mermaid pallet with the not so neutral colors, or the Aspyn Ovard pallet that is more natural and neutral but can be glam as well. I am actually very happy I purchased both because there are days I want a more natural look and then there are days when I want more color. So I hope this was somewhat helpful and you enjoyed it.
Even though Florida is known as the sunshine state it rains a lot. When approaching Summer we get stuck inside for days and sometimes weeks. Being a nanny I have had found ways to keep little one and my self entertained on the days when we are stuck at the house. So here are somethings that have kept us from going crazy because of the rain.
The first is board games and I feel like I have been playing a lot of lately. But if you can find a board game a long one like monopoly. You will definitely be entertained and distracted for pretty much the whole storm. Especially if you are playing monopoly because lets be honest, its the board game that never ends.
The second is arts & crafts, For Munch, which is what I call the little girl I nanny because she doesn't like being called munchkin this usually means play dough or crayons and coloring books. I'm not really trusting her with markers just yet so we stick to crayons. But, for me when I am not working and at home I like to either paint, doodle, or sketch; it just depends I'm in the mood for at the moment. Sometimes I'll even D.I.Y something If I have supplies at home and don't have to leave my house.
The Third is a movie marathon. Recently I've been watching old Disney movies with Munch, the ones she hasn't seen. So since its been raining alot Disney marathons are what we have been having. When I am at home I'm not going to lie, I have Disney marathons myself at home. But I love action movies so I will watch Olympus Has Fallen, London Has Fallen, and all Mission Impossible Movies and more. So if you like to get cozy on the couch or in your bed and watch movies all days rainy days are the perfect chance to do that.
The fourth is to cook or bake something. I know there is one thing we all probably do and that is eat when we're board. So instead of going back and forth between the fridge and pantry go on Pinterest or look in a cook book and find some recipes to try even if they don't turn out right. Because, honestly everything on Pinterest doesn't always work out. It will keep your mind off the fact you are stuck inside.
The fifth is even though it's boring and probably something you do not want to do is clean your room. Like I said its boring and not really something any of us want to do. But, it has to be done and it needs to be done eventually so why not do it while your stuck inside.
The sixth is read. I actually really love reading it's something I enjoy doing alot. Most of the stuff I read is on my phone even though I have books on my book shelf that I have started but never finished because I find something that I like better on my phone to read. Or, I have lost interest in the book I started reading or I find another one I want to read at the same time but I do eventually finish them. So a rainy day is a perfect day to lay in bed in your comfy clothes and read a book.
So that is my little list of rainy day activities that I have tried myself before and stayed entertained. I know it doesn't always rain everywhere but in Florida it does. So I am always trying to find things to do inside especially when I am taking care of four year old. So I hope this was some what helpful or you enjoyed it and have fun on your rainy days.
Okay since Ive seen a few of these on other blogs and youtube I realized that I haven't even made my Summer bucket list yet. I'm sure everyone knows what a Summer bucket list is but if you don't t's a list of things you plan to do or really want to do and hoping to do over the summer. So I figured I would share my list with you an hopefully give you some ideas on what to do this Summer.
Number one on the list is have a photo shoot! That is something I love to do any time of the year. But, I have not had one in the Summer yet since I got my camera in November of 2016. So a Summer photo shoot is way over due. So I am hoping for it to happen this summer especially with my friends.
Number two on the list is go to the beach more than once. I am not the person that enjoys going to the beach on my own I like having a family member or a friend with me. But, since my best friend works on the weekends we didn't get to the beach as much as we wanted to. So it is definitely a goal this Summer.
Number two on the list is to travel wether its by car or plane. I don't care I just want to travel and go somewhere. I actually have a wanderlust list I am working on. I'm planning to post it sometime in the future once I get it all put together. There are many places I would love to explore in and out of the country so traveling is a big one on my list.
Number four on the list is go on a picnic. This is something my friends and I have wanted to do but never have had the chance to. It can be a lot of fun if you find a cute spot at a park or nature preserve or even on the beach. Plus, its fun to find some recipes on Pinterest to try out for the picnic. Also this is a great photo opportunity with your friends.
Number five on the list is watch fireworks show on the 4th of July which is something I have done for years now and I look forward to it each year. Fireworks isn't the only thing to do on this holiday; you can also have a bar-b-que, or spend the day at the beach and pool. But most of all just spend the day with friends and family creating memories.
I am really looking forward to some Summer fun with friends and family. Also I am looking forward to creating some new memories and adding some new photos to my photo box. These are only a few things on my list but I am hoping to check a few of these off and I am really hopefully I complete my whole list. I hope this gave you some inspiration and ideas to help you make your summer fun and create some new memories.
I love photography and have been taking classes for a couple weeks now. I especially love going to have photoshoots with my best friend. But, sometimes I find it hard to find locations to have photoshoots at. Sometimes I have to drive around for hours until I find a cute spot for photos. There's times when I know where I already want to go, but usually I have have to look up places around where I live for cute locations. So here are some places I have noticed make cute photoshoot spots.
The first one is pretty obvious, the Beach. Whether you are taking pictures of yourself, friends. or even the waves this is great place for photos. I live about fifth-teen minutes from the beach so this is a place I always go for walks and to watch the sunset. So, I have alot of photos in my phone and camera from there.
The next location which should pretty much be anywhere is a park. Now I have a park in my neighborhood which is doable for photos but not my first choice. I do have an island preserve near me that is really great for photos. There a picnic area some trails to walk on and docks to go look out at the water. Since there are different areas in the preserve there are many photo opportunities.
The next location is a cute little cafe and no I don't mean Panera or Starbucks; even though Starbucks does make a really cute photo spot. I had no idea I had any type of cute little cafes near me until recently. But if you can find them they usually are really great spots for a photo. There's a new little doughnut shop that has opened near me and I haven't had the opportunity to take a photo there yet. Since they are usually really busy its hard to get a good photo in there but I will definetly be trying next time I go.
Even though this one isn't something that is everywhere the next location is Disney world. If you have the opportunity to go to disney do it and make sure you bring your camera; a phone also takes good photos. Since I live in Florida Disney World is alot closer to me than Disney Land. But there are so many spots in Disney World and Disney Land that you will definetly have many photo opportunities. Also I'm pretty Disney Obsessed so I am always wanting to go so I had to include this one.
There are so many great places to take photos to which is why I did not include all of them. But all really have to do is get in your car and drive around until you find a cute spot. Even just look up photoshoot locations even though I say this a lot I use Pinterest and We Heart It to find photo inspiration. I hope this gave you guys some ideas for photos and have fun with it.
I actually snack quite often especially with me working as a nanny now. When I am working I try to have healthy snacks with me so I’m not eating junk all day. Yes, I still put chips in my lunch box, but I do like to have some healthy options like grapes or nectarines. I like something easy and healthy that I can pop in my mouth so I don’t feel bad eating so much junk. But, when I am at home I do try to find healthy options for snacks; whether it be a smoothie or some fruit. A lot of the snacks I try to make are from Pinterest. We all know if you try to make something on Pinterest it’s either going to be a hit or miss. Somethings seem impossible to make and some are completely easy, which is why I always look up easy snacks to make. That way there’s less of a chance of failure.
A snack I recently made from Pinterest and really did enjoy is chocolate almond butter frozen banana bites. It's a pretty easy snack to make and is also really delicious. I believe the recipe I found on Pinterest actually uses almond butter but since my family loves peanut butter, I knew it was something that would be in the house and I wouldn't have to go buy anything. So feel free to use peanut butter or almond butter, it's your choice. My brothers tried these little snacks which I didnt think they would but they both agreed that they taste like ice cream. So they are a sweet little treat that is on the healthier side with a little chocolate.
Another healthy snack or more so drink I make myself is a smoothie. Smoothies are great when you need something on the go or you just want something sweet. The best part about smoothies are all the combinations you can make. I actually like to make myself mango, pineapple, and strawberry smoothies. I know a lot of people use coconut water for their smoothies but I am not a huge fan of coconut. I like to use lemonade as my liquid for my smoothies. But, it's completely up to you how you want to make your smoothie and that's the best part.
Veggies and dip this is the easiest and quickest snack. I usually eat carrots with ranch just because it's two things that is always in my house. But you can really choose whatever veggies and dip you want. You could have hummus or peanut butter what ever you like. Personally, I dont like hummus and I've dipped celery in peanut butter once to try it, but I do like my ranch a lot better than anything. So again, its just what you prefer.
Fruit salad is another snack that is really easy to make and can last for days. I'm not going to lie but when ever I think of fruit salad I think of the Wiggles song, Fruit Salad. But I was a preschool teacher and listened to this song many times a day. This is such a healthy refreshing snack especially during the Spring and Summer which is when I like to eat alot of fruit. Currently, I have a huge bowl of watermelon in my fridge that I have been snacking on throughout the day. To make a fruit salad simply pick your favorite fruits, cut them up, and throw them in a bowl. Let it chill in the fridge until your ready to eat it.
So most of these are just healthy snack ideas and not really recipes. But you can easily look up snack ideas or just take what ever you have in your home and make a healthy or non healthy snack, that's up to you. There are so many recipes for fruit salads, veggie dips, smoothies, and healthier sweet treats on Pinterest.
When you in a hurry and its a bad hair day or you just haven't washed your hair. You know you just want a quick easy hair style wether its a messy bun or a pony tail. Just something to do to your hair to make it look decent. Pretty much all of these hair styles are from pinterest which I know we all probably go to when you need a little inspiration,.
The first one is the very known and loved the messy bun. Now lets be honest the messy bun can either be very easy or very difficult to accomplish. Which is why I was a little hesitant to add it to this list it is a goal to make it look as messy as possible. But also decent and cute and stylish. I know all of us probably have a mini celebration when you can actually make a messy bun perfectly on the first try. It might take a you only one try or multiple tries but then end result will look effortless and easy.
The half up half down hair style this is always a cute go to hair style if you are in a hurry, or if you just haven't washed your hair in a few days and you want it to look decent. This is great for the your hair is not doing what you want it to and you just need it out of your face. If your're having a bad hair day this hairstyle is so simple, easy and quick but still really stylish.
The beach wave hairstyle is so popular and easy to accomplish and depending on how well your hair holds a curl they can last a few days. I use my Beach Weaver S1 curling iron for my beach waves but any curling iron will work. My curling iron is a one inch barrel which works really well on my hair, so it just depends on your hair type. But, I personally really love how the beach wave hair style looks.
French braids something I wish I was still good at and could do myself. If you can french braid better than I can then there are so many hairstyles you can do. French braids or even fish tail braids are always a cute go to hair style for when you want your hair out of your face but still want it to look cute.
Since I just got my hair cut and colored I am really excited to try out a few new hair styles myself. I know I will be working on getting better at french braiding again. I hope this gave you a fews ideas for when your in a hurry or you just want to try something different with your hair.
Just like every season when it comes around again fashion changes. Something you wore last year might not be in style this year. Or something you wore last year is more in style this year than the last. We all have a piece of clothing that can make or break an outfit for each season. I have not really had the chance to go shopping for new spring clothing this year yet, but I have looked around at a few stores and noticed things more in fashion this year than last. So If you need some cute spring outfit ides I think I have a few for you.
Swing dresses; I am actually a huge fan of these. Swing dresses are super soft and comfortable they can either be dressed up or dressed down. They are definitely good for transitioning back into the warmer weather. I actually own three of these dresses two black and one green that I recently bought. I really love these dresses, I can dress them up for church or I can dress them down for a work day when I just want to be casual and comfy. Also, these dresses are never really expensive so they're a good price if you're on a budget but want a few cute dresses to add to your wardrobe.
Palazzo Pants ok so for the longest time I was against these pants I just never liked the style of them. But recently I have been warming up to them. I am still not sure if they are something I would personally wear but if it was a chillier spring day. You wanted to dress a little warmer with out feeling like you were going to burn up. This is definitely a good clothing item to add to your closet that is super stylish.
Gingham patterned clothing is something I noticed is very much in style this year. I actually love the look of this pattern wether it is a dress, pants, shorts, or a top. I actually have had my eye on a few dresses in this pattern from a couple different stores. Having a clothing item in this pattern is a definet yes. Its some thing good to have from any time of the year even though it's been really big right now during spring. With company making swim suits in this pattern which I myself have been looking at as well.
Maxi Dresses are always good for the Spring and Summer seasons. I usually don't wear them because my torso is to short and I feel like I'm being swallowed by a dress. But I did recently by one from Aerie that I do really like the way it looks on me. I think its just a personal opinion on how they look on your self. But I do like them especially for the days that its really hot or you just don't feel like wear shorts/pants. They are great for when you just wan to throw something on to stay cool in the warm weather but also still look really cute.
Sun hats are cute and stylish for any occasion. I've noticed they have become bigger and more in style this year than the last. I have one but I would like more. Especially with all they colors and styles they come in now. They are great to wear for a day by the pool or at the beach laying in the sun. You could even pair it with a nice little sundress which you be really cute.
There so many more clothing items and accessories that you can add to your Spring and Summer wardrobe. You don't have to buy a whole new wardrobe for the these seasons. But obviously getting a few new pieces to add to your closet is always fun. Also finding new ways to style your new and old pieces together is fun as well. Spring is like fresh start for your wardrobe with all new styles to try.
It's starting to feel like Summer here in Florida which means it's time to head to the beach and the pool. I got a new beach bag last year from Society6 which I am in love with. They sell their bags in small, medium, and large sizes. I bought the large one so I would have more room.
The first item in my bag is sunscreen. You should never lay in the sun with out sunscreen so, that is definitely a necessity and a must in my bag. The highest SPF sunscreen I have is fifty and the lowest is thirty. Most of the time I go to the beach to lay out and get a tan. So the need for a good sunscreen that will protect my skin is high and the brand I use the most is Tropicana.
The second item in my bag is a heat protector for my hair. Since I have been blonde, I have been big on protecting my hair especially in the summer when I'm at the pool or the beach all of the time. Everyone should protect there hair when laying in the sun not just blondes. Blondes do have more of a risk of their hair turning green from the chlorine in the pool or ocean water. Most hair protectors have sunscreen in them with SPF fifteen. If you curl or straighten your hair you should have a heat protector so I just throw mine in my beach bag before I leave my house.
The third item in my nag is my EOS chapstick in sweet mint. A chap stick in your beach bag is good thing to have because just like your skin your lips can get sunburned as well. It's a good idea to keep your lips moisturized and protected if you are laying out getting a tan or playing in the water. Also there's usually a breeze at the beach that can dry out you're lips so to keep them from getting chapped its good to keep a chapstick in your bag.
The fourth item in my bag is a little hair brush. Whether you're at the beach or the pool if you're in the water or laying out your hair is going to get messy. I always carry a little travel sized hair brush with me no matter where I go but I always make sure I have one in my beach bag. Its nice to have one in case you go out out to eat after the beach like me and my friends do. If I don't brush my hair after the beach I know for sure my hair looks like a birds nest. So I like to keep my brush my hair in my bag just so I can fix my hair before I walk in to a restaurant.
The fifth item in my bag is a little bottle a lotion. Have you noticed that after you lay out at the beach the air and water has made your skin feel tight and dry. This always happens to me and I hate that feeling especially if I plan to go eat after. I don't feel comfortable sitting for an hour with my skin feeling like that. So I always throw a little travel sized bottle of lotion in my bag to put on once I'm in the car. A little tip I have for you, if you happen to get sunburned but you really don't want your skin to peel like me, use a lotion that has aloe or coconut oil in it. You're skin is dry and craving moisture so give it what it needs.
The sixth item is of course is a beach towel. You can't really go to the pool or beach with out a towel. I bought a new towel last year but I'm planning on buying a cute round towel this year. My best friend and I love buying new beach stuff every year. I would recommend not going in to Target when they have all there new Summer items because like always you will buy more than you need. But it is fun seeing everything new because trends and styles change every season.
The seventh item are my sunglasses which is something I've become kinda obsessed with. I used to have a Sol Theory subscription which is specifically for sunglasses. So I do have quite a few pairs of glasses, but it is good to no matter where you go to have a pair of sunglasses with you. The thing about glasses is that styles are always changing so you always need more than one pair. Or, thats what I tell my self when ever I see a cute pair when I'm out shopping.
The eighth item is a water bottle you should always stay hydrated and have some water with you no matter what. You can easily just grab a water bottle from your fridge and take it with you. But if your like me then you probably think about what will look cute in Instagram photos. My Aunt recently got me a teal reusable Mira water bottle which can be found on Amazon for about $20. Like a s'well bottle the bottle is insulated and can keep drinks cold for twelve hours and hot drinks hot for eight hours. I was so excited to get this bottle as I was needing a new good one. But again you don't have to have a fancy water bottle any water bottle will do as long as you're staying hydrated.
So that is what is in my beach bag let me know what you like to keep in your beach bag. Or if any of my items helped you figure out what to put in your beach bag.
