Hello! I’ve come back with a new post, a topic I’ve wanted to do for quite some time (since it’s summer here in Aus). Thank you to Tripping.com for suggesting the idea!

Okay.

So your friend called you up for a last minute beach trip on the weekends, but you’re stuck on what to bring! Well, rest assured, I got you ^_^

My dream swimsuit has to be this DelMar one sported by Emily Ratajkowski. It’s a one piece but looks like two piece- and the mesh is to die for! A cover up is definitely an essential when shopping around the nearby stores or buying a drink at a nearby cafe, and this lace one is understated and gorgeous! Other standard pieces are sun protection glasses, a sun hat and flip flops. I love how the sequined sun hat from Neiman Marcus and diamante flip flops from M & Co add sophistication to the beach chic outfit.

In terms of skin care, you definitely you need to stock up on these essentials:

  1. Facial Sun Screen (much less oily than body sunscreen)
  2. Scrunchie hair tie (it’s much less damaging to wet hair)
  3. Water bottle (fill it with water, juice or coconut water!)
  4. Body Sun Screen (make sure you reapply every 2 hours no matter what SPF because sweat and sea water wipes it off.)
  5. SPF lip balm (yes, lips need protection too!)
  6. Waterproof eyeliner (an essential if you’re obsessed with eyeliner)
  7. Summer Fragrance (if the smell of the beach and or sweat irks you)
  8. Beach Towel (duh.)

I love this multi-strap beach bag from Vix but any tote bag should do!

to do

Hmm.. what to do… what to do! Here are a few essentials that you might consider!

  • Bring a kindle! A kindle is much lighter than carrying several books.
  • Bring a camera! I prefer retro cameras more, but digital cameras are quick and easy!
  • Bring a Journal! I remember going to the beach and saw a guy writing what I assume to be thoughtful notes and drawing a few sketches. The beach never lacks in inspiration 🙂
  • Magazine! I prefer physical copies because I love the photographic clarity in the pages, however subscribing via your kindle is very common!
  • Snack? I would personally buy a snack at the \cafes near the beach because of convenience, however, a little homemade fruit salad or muesli won’t hurt!.
  • Your phone. I know only a few people who ditch their phone at home for a relaxing day at the beach, notification free. However, if you’d like to browse through social media and chill listening to your favourite playlist- don’t forget to bring it along with a pair of headphones!

And that’s it! I hope you found this post helpful for your next beach trip. If you’re looking for a  beach holiday getaway, don’t forget to check out vacation rentals in Florida, US thanks to Tripping.com!

Have a great day!
