Beach Vacation Essentials

Friday, May 13, 2016

Are your heading to the beach for a few days? If so, this post is for you. These are the items I always pack when I'm heading on vacation. Hope these suggestions help! 

1. Eliza Gran Beach Bag- I know this is kind of a no brainier but I have traveled with girls before who don't bring a proper roomy bag to the beach and they struggle carrying everything they need. Make sure it fits all of your daily essentials. If it's straw, I recommend you carry it as your purse on the plane. Don't fold or smash that baby up inside your luggage! Budget friendly options here and here

2. The Lip Slip Lipbalm - I slather this on at night, not just when I'm at the beach but at home. This makes my slips soooo soft and moisturizes them so nicely. Of course, you should be wearing a lip balm with SPF during the day, but this is the perfect cherry on top to finish off your night-time skincare routine. 

3. Benefit High Beam Highlighter - You're on vacation, so keep your make up simple. My favorite way to update my make up for the beach is by using highlighter and keeping the rest of my face light. This one from Benefit is one of my favorite ones. If you like a powder one I recommend this palette. 

I will be doing a separate post on my favorite make up products to bring to the beach soon :) 

4. Moroccan Oil - I love this stuff! I put a little bit in my hair after I shower and before I put my hair up in a bun. It smells so good and makes my hair soft and shiny. 

5. Wide Tooth Comb - Keep it in your beach bag. It will help you detangle your pretty hair after a dip in the ocean. 

6. Love Binetti Cross-body Bag - This one is very important ladies! You don't wanna be stuck with your gigantic beach bag or hand held clutch on a night out. I always pack a cross-body bag whenever I go on vacation {in addition to other options}. You want to have free hands to eat, dance and hold hands with that special someone. How adorable is this rose gold one from ShopBop?

7. Cocoa Butter Body Lotion - The best way to keep your skin healthy and extend your tan is to make sure you are always moisturized. Slather on this lotion after you shower and your skin will feel ridiculously soft. Warning: the chocolate smell is addictive! You might be craving it after a while. 

8. Aussie Deep Conditioner Treatment - This is by far the one thing YOU MUST pack. A deep conditioning treatment for your hair that your will use every day you are at the beach. The sun, sand and salty water really dry out your strands. Put this on after your rinse and shampoo your hair and let it sit while you finish your shower...your hair will thank you. It will be so soft you'll want to keep doing it even after vacation is over. I also love this option {a bit pricier} from Kerastase. 

9. Karen Walker Sunglasses - Protect your eyes from UV rays and wrinkles while your look fab! I'm obviously biased to this style since I just got them, but I also love this and this

10. Nordstrom Sun Hat - This is just as important as the beach bag yet girls still forget it. I'm all about getting some sun, just not on my face. I have a couple hats I always pack but a big large one is a must have for me, it protects shoulders and face. 

Happy Friday!

  11. One of the hottest new trends in the flipflops footwear industry is a variety of shoes designed especially to be worn at the beach. Some of them are designed for fashion, some for serious functionality. Choosing the right beach footwear for you depends on what activities you have planned. Whether you plan to sunbathe, play volleyball, run or fish from the rocks, there is a shoe perfect for you

  13. I'd prefer book a different flight and save many dollars at that point book a vacation that incorporates a flight. Moreover, there's a considerable lot of us that have strategies for gathering focuses to apply towards flights when we decide to travel.Napali Coast Sunset Cruise
