I am so glad that it is finally March! In Charleston, March means the start of beach season!
If you live at the beach, it’s important that you are ready to go all beach season – you never know when a girlfriend will want to go sunning or your boyfriend might sign you up for a spontaneous bocce ball tournament!
So, I’m packing my beach bag now. I’ll leave it packed all summer and just swap out things as they get used up or as I finish books and magazines. Here’s what I’m packing:
Towel — Bigger is better for towels! I love the extra wide picnic sized towels for spreading out on the sand.
Zippered Pouch — Upgrade from the plastic baggie and keep your phone and beauty products in a pouch to keep them sand free.
Books and Magazines — Summer calls for light & fun reading material. Paperbacks trump hardcovers for sandy reading, and magazines are always a win.
Venus Snap Razor — This product rocks! It’s the Venus Embrace (5 blades!) with an easy to grip mini handle. It’s perfect for when you suddenly realize you missed a spot shaving!
Sunscreen — I like to bring a variety of sunscreen. Separate SPFs for your face and body can keep you safe from the sun.
Chapstick — I don’t go anywhere without chapstick, especially in the sun! Keep a tube exclusively in your beach bag so you are never without it.
Sunglasses — No need to squint with a pair of tortoiseshell sunnies! Along with chapstick, I have sunglasses in every bag so I always have a pair handy.
Hair ties and a Headband — You never know how windy it might be at the beach. Always bring extra hair ties and headbands, just in case you need to get your hair off your face.
Don’t you love the case that the Venus Snap Razor comes in? It makes it so easy to throw in your bag and take it with you everywhere for instant smoothness on the go!
What are your beach bag must haves?!
