Beach Bag Must-Haves
Here we are in the final stretch of summer friends! #sadface But there’s no need to worry just yet, we still have plenty of sunshine ahead of us and lots of sandy beach worthy days to take in before school starts. So as another sunny summer weekend begins, here is a little fun list of my beach bag must haves.
Michelle’s Beach Bag Must Haves
SUNSCREEN: First and foremost: Girl, wear your sunscreen! The number one rule of anti-aging and the number one thing I am working on getting better at (no judgement) is making sure I am wearing my sunscreen! I am a sunshine goddess & I love Arbonne SPF 30 sunscreen. It’s actually from the ABC Baby Skincare line but that is exactly why I trust it. It’s mineral formula is scent-free and absorbs quickly - essential for those sandy beaches.
A GOOD BOOK: You can’t sit on the beach without a good beach read. I’m either diving deep into a juicy romance or I’m thigh high in the self-development pool. Some of my top choices are Rachel Hollis - Girl, Stop Apologizing where her no excuses, no BS approach to life and success is always a good kick in the booty, or anything from Elin Hilderbrand. Her stories always take me away and inspire true love. If you’re looking for a good laugh, Sophie Kinsella and her kooky characters always deliver (think Becky Bloomwood from Confessions of a Shopaholic).
SWIMSUIT & COVERUP: Well I guess this one truly goes without saying. Swimco offers styles for everyone and everybody. You’ll love their compassionate shopping experience and the pride they take in making sure every customer feels good half naked.
BEACH BLANKET: A girl needs a good beach blanket to park her booty and spread her gams. Nothing says Canadian summer quite like a classic from the Hudson Bay Collection. Choose from extra large towels or super soft blankets.
FIZZ: All that fun in the sun can drain your energy. I always make sure I keep hydrated and energized when I’m playing outdoors. Fizz sticks are full of B vitamins, guarana, ginseng and green tea extract. The perfect healthy energy cocktail! You can drink them on their own or mix it with your favourite vodka and summer fruit for a healthier summer sangria!
HAT: I am a hat girl! I love love love hats! From baseball caps, floppy fashion hats & wide brim straw hats I love them and wear them all! I’ve found some of my favourites in places from the Fairfax Flea Market in L.A to Forever XXI, Joe Fresh, Brixton and Indigo. It’s the easiest way to compliment messy beach hair and shield your face from the sun (remember anti aging rule #1!)
