Vacation Diaries: Beach Essentials

While spending the last few days on the beach, while on vacation, I have found some things that I don’t think I could live without down the shore.


Everyone loves the Victoria Secret Semi-Annual sale, including myself. Before heading on vacation, I found this canvas backpack for only $5! It was such a great deal for a beach bag, I couldn’t resist. You also need a pair of Old Navy flip flops for the beach, as well as a cute beach towel.


First thing you always need at the beach is sunscreen. As often as I put on sunscreen, my pale skin always seems to get burnt. I also always like to bring a hair brush to the beach in case the wind tangles my hair. My favorite brush for the beach is my Tangle Teezer, its great for wet hair after a swim in the ocean.

A book is great to have on the beach. I have been reading “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero this week on vacation and so far I am loving it.


I hate applying heat to my hair during the summer. I just started using Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturing Hair Cream, you apply it when your hair is wet and it adds volume and texture for be achy waves. Waterproof mascara is also a must. This Maybelline mascara has been great to add length and volume to my eyelashes without looking cakey. SPF chapstick is also a must to prevent your lips from burning. You might be thinking that lips don’t burn, but oh yes they can and it can be painful! I also carry gum in my bag just to keep my breath fresh.
