Must Have Items To Pack In Your Beach Bag This Summer

I love Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring, and I believe there is beauty in all seasons. As the days get longer and the nights get warmer, it’s time to spend time with friends and loved ones.  In the summer months, a lot of people spend their time at the beach or the pool soaking up the sun. So  you’ll need a gorgeous bag with all your beach/pool essentials in it. Here are my top beach bag essentials every girl needs.

Straw Beach Bag

For starters, you’ll need to put all your beach essentials into a gorgeous beach bag. A large woven or straw beach bag is perfect for the beach or pool. A large straw beach bag is great as it will fit everything you need in there, it’s functional and a classic and elegant style.

SPF Sunscreen

A high quality mineral sunscreen is a must for your beach bag. Not only does sunscreen prevent us from sunburn but it also helps with the signs of ageing. A nice brand sunscreen with clean ingredients such as Ethical Zinc is an absolute beach bag essential.

Beach Towel

You cannot go to the beach without a large luxurious beach towel. There are so many different types of beach towels out there. Make sure its made with durable materials, they come in all different designs and patterns. I personally like a classic blue and white stripe towel.

A gorgeous pair of elegant sunglasses for your beach bag is a must. Sunglasses not only make you look stylish and chic, but they can keep the sun out of your eyes.

Lip Balm

Every girl needs a lip balm in pretty much every handbag she owns. In the warmer months, our lips get chapped and need moisturising. It is very uncomfortable to have sore and chapped lips with no lip balm at hand. So a lovely moisturising lip balm is essential for your beach bag.

A light read on the beach is perfect to help you relax and wind down. One book that is absolutely lovely is a book called Ikigai by hector etc etc, . Ikigai is a Japanese term which refers to something that gives a person a sense of purpose and a reason for living. It gives examples of how to live a long and happy life. It is such an easy read and is perfect for those lazy beach and pool days.

A hat will protect you from getting sun burnt, keep your head cool and have you looking stylish and chic. There are many styles out there, large floppy hats are very elegant for the pool side or beach.

Something to wear when it gets a little cool or if the sun gets too hot is essential. A gorgeous beach cover up such as, an oversized linen shirt, a light flowy dress, a two piece set or a light maxi dress is perfect to cover yourself up, and look stylish at the same time.

Stainless Steele drink bottle

A stainless steele drink bottle is a great low thing to have on hand at all times, but definitely in the warmer months. Stainless steele is a great low tox option for a drink bottle and keeps your drink cool for longer in comparison to plastic bottles. There are many chic Stainless Steele drink bottles on the market, some great brands are, Frank Green, Yeti,

Hair Scrunchie or Hair Claw

Having a scrunchie, hair tie or a hair claw is a great thing to have on hand to keep your hair out of the way or up. These hair accessories are perfect for when it’s windy, if you don’t want to get your hair wet, or if your hair is so long and you just want in tied up out of the way. A nice gold or tortoise shell patterned hair claw or neutral coloured silk scrunchie is perfect for a chic look.
