Beach Bag Essentials



With summer supposedly in full swing, it seems like an appropriate time to post a beach essentials post. - it also ties in well with the fact that I've recently returned from a fortnight in Italy.

The most important thing for a 'Beach Bag Essentials Post', would of course be a beach bag! This is an oil cloth tote* from Lee Cooper. It's a gorgeous Cath Kidston style print, and the fact that it's oil cloth makes it perfect for using by the pool/beach.

Next up is the beauty essentials. They're all kept in a make up bag I made a few months ago - it's also made of an oil cloth fabric, and is a lovely size for a couple of bits and bobs. The first is an SPF lip balm, as sunburnt lips are horrible! This is just one from Lacura, and it does just the trick!

I also have a small Benefit 'Ring My Bella' perfume and a Dove deodorant- as after a sunny day at the beach, it's nice to still feel and smell lovely. Finally in the make up bag is a waterproof mascara from MUA. This cost £1, it's not overly volumising or lengthening but it's definitely waterproof which is the most important thing!

Also, while lounging at the beach a beach towel and bikini are must haves. I'm not sure where this specific towel is from but I bought the bikini in Victoria's Secret last year in Florida. My favourite thing about going on a sunny holiday is buying new swimwear!!

My iPod is a vital holiday item. I can play games, listen to music as well as Instagram the sand, sea and sun. Occasionally I'll read while at the beach. This is what I'm currently halfway thorough, it's hilarious and I love Miranda Hart's sense of humour. I know surf spray is 'in' at the moment, but the sea creates more of a tangly mess than beachy waves. So a hairbrush is always handy!

What are your beach essentials?
Are yours the same as mine?
