Welcome to December, fashionistas! Now that we’ve officially entered the festive season, most of us are eagerly awaiting our well-deserved vacations.
If you’re anything like me, you’re counting down the days until your toes are covered in sand while you take a daily beach stroll.
As long as you’re beach-bound, you’re going to require a sufficiently stocked beach bag, in order to maximise your beach-day fun!
Below I’ve listed our top 12 beach bag necessities:
- It’s all about the bag!
Before ticking off your beach day packing list, you need a generously sized tote/carry-all/backpack. Bonus points if its quirky!
Any out-door summer activity requires sunglasses. However, I prefer to pack an inexpensive pair,
as they can be easily damaged or lost while swimming or going head-to-head in a beach volley-ball show-down.
Getting a tan is a prerequisite before departing from your vacation destination, but there’s a fine line between being tanned and sunburn.
You’re going to need a towel to dry off after you swim or to lay on, whilst you work on your tan.
(An additional tanning mat is optional)
- Sarong/Beach Dress
Just bring something along to throw on over your bikini, while you stroll along the beach or to visit the nearest ice-cream parlour for favourite your icy treat.
- Waterproof pouch for phone
Not only will it protect your phone from water or sand, it will also allow you to take those Instagram-ready under-water selfies!
- Reading Material
This is an absolute essential! Tanning without a good book or your favourite fashion magazine can become boring.
Bring along a good read to capitalise on your tanning experience.
- Snacks & Water
Fun in the sun definitely works up an appetite! Be sure to pack a couple snacks for the day and don’t forget to stay hydrated!
- Wet wipes
I’ve only recently started packing these and you’ll be thanking me later!
It’s a simple and convenient option to clean your sandy hands before having a snack or opening up your favourite book.
A cooling Aloe-Vera after-sun gel is my go-to and absolute essential after a long day in the sun.
Keep your tanned skin hydrated, in order to prolong that golden appearance.
There are memories to be made and you’ll regret not capturing your epic sandcastle or that perfect family beach photo.
- Sun Umbrella
You technically can’t fit this in your beach bag, but it’s an absolute must-have! You’re going to wish you had a bit of shade, by mid-day.
Make the most out of your sunny beach days, this holiday season!
