Happy Wednesday! My family got to Florida late Monday night so we stayed in a hotel right by the airport. We spent Tuesday morning grocery shopping and driving to the house in the Keys. Oh my goodness the house is gorgeous, I’ll share pictures of it soon!
Since I’ll be spending a ton of time outside I figured I would share with you some of my beach essentials. Enjoy!
This is probably nothing new to anyone in terms of beach essentials but I need water. I am constantly drinking water throughout the day regardless of whether I’m inside or outside. When I’m at the beach or just out by a pool I love to keep water with me. Sometimes I’ll freeze a bottle (or two!) overnight so that it stays cold the whole day.
Again, probably not a surprise to anyone! I love the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen for my face. I try to wear it every time I’m outside if I don’t have makeup on (my foundation has SPF 50 in it). I love this sunscreen from Neutrogena for my face because it doesn’t feel greasy. For my body I don’t really have a preference on a certain brand or type.
Since I love to read I especially love it on the beach or by the pool. I feel like I fly through books in that setting. I’m currently reading “Pretty Is” so I will keep you updated on that! I tend to really enjoy the thriller genre in books but I like a lot of different books. I have both my Nook Color and some paperback books that my mom brought with her. I’m hoping the house we’re staying at has some books that I can read as well!
*I typed this post up Tuesday afternoon and finished the book last night. It was good but not amazing.
There is nothing worse than being on a boat or by the pool and getting hungry. I try to always have some sort of snack on me to avoid having to get hangry or go inside the house. I tend to bring granola bars or some carrots and hummus with me since they’re easy to eat!
I don’t wear makeup when I know I’ll be by water and swimming. Having makeup wipes is a great way to wipe sunscreen and sweat off your face and feel a bit more refreshed after a day out in the sun. Currently I’m using the Up&Up brand from Target and I really like them!
