Pack Your Beach Bag!

Hi all!  Hope you had a fantastic weekend.  I felt like mine flew by!  I was lucky enough to hit the beach on Saturday with the little guy.  He loved splashing in the water and eating playing in the sand.

One thing I’ve figured out since becoming a mom is that I need to be super prepared whenever I go anywhere.  I’m always packing bags and making sure I have everything I need.  One of my favorite bags to pack is my beach bag.  I get so excited for the fun day ahead.  Here are my beach bag essentials:

1. A fun bag to hold all my gear.

2.  A cute suit for catching waves.

3.  Some comfy and stylin flip flops.

4.  A huge straw hat to keep the sun off my face.

5.  Oversized glasses to protect my baby blues.

6.  A good bottle of sunscreen.  I was sent this bottle of Block Island Organic Sunscreen to try out.  It’s awesome stuff.  It’s a natural mineral sunscreen with SPF 30.  It’s made of completely natural and organic ingredients (zinc only). It’s gluten-free, nano-free, vegan formula, eco-friendly with no parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, dyes or fragrances.  Basically nothing bad for you!  It’s also lightweight and not at all greasy.

7.  Beach reading.  I love to catch up on my magazine reading at the beach.

8.  A big fluffy towel to lay on.

9.  Something to keep me hydrated.  I love the classic half and half: half lemonade and half iced tea.

Readers, what’s in your beach bag?  Are you a big planner?

    I’m so bad at beach days — I’m not good at lying around for hours for some reason! But I do love spending time at the beach, walking or playing a game or swimming.

    We haven’t had our youngest at the beach yet, but he loved eating the sand at the playground, so I can only imagine how he’ll be when we get there in a few weeks! Silly boys!

    yes!! This is the perfect list!! I am a huge fan of half and half too! I need to get to the beach more often this summer, it takes extra effort when you live in the city!

      It totally does! But you are so good at getting out there and doing things, I have no doubt you’ll make it there plenty!

    Nice, I hadn’t heard of Block Island sunscreen before and it sounds great. The UV index has been really high here and I’ve been loading up on the SPF to keep my light skin healthy!

    My beach bag contains the most lovely Vera Bradley beach organizer bags from my son and daughter-in-law-I even have a waterproof bag. My bags are filled with all the essentials for a day at the beach!
