Question of the month from Kristen: What are your beach bag essentials?
The perfect question for July…especially for me as we’re off to the beach this weekend!
Bag: Lands End
Beach Towel: Lands End (different pattern)
Water Bottle: Bubba (LOVE this brand so much – my model has a flip-up straw and keeps water so cold that ice cubes stick around for hours!)
Facial Sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Water Light Sunscreen SPF 60 – (love it because I can use it daily without breaking out. Also works as a great pre-foundation primer! Not sure if it has the same name in the US but the packaging is identical to this one.)
Lip Sunblock: Vichy Lip Protection Stick SPF 30 (so important to protect your lips from getting burnt!)
Lip Gloss: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop (love this whole range of glosses – super high-end quality at drugstore prices!)
Body Sunscreen: Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 60 (glides on SO smoothly! Leaves skin moisturized and NO white-ish cast)
Snack: Nature Valley Granola Bars
Reading Material: My favorite magazine – Stylewatch!
And here’s what I’ll be wearing:
Hat: Target (similar for $7.50)
Flip flops: Old Navy
Swimsuit: Old Navy (control max one piece *aka spanx in a suit* at a bargain price – perfect for me!)
Cut-offs: Old Navy
Cover-up: Winners/TJMaxx (similar)
