As summer approaches and we start planning for our beach vacations, warmer weather, fun in the sun, days at the pool and all the things that make summer so wonderful. It is also time to start thinking about your summer beach bag. We fortunately live near the coast, and it is already beach weather here! The other day when we were enjoying a morning at the beach, I decided to take a photo and write a blog about what I love and always have in my beach bag. First of all, when I am with my family, I take our really large Life is Good anchor beach bag. (When it's just me and hubby, I grab my smaller straw bag). I love how my Life is Good bag fits everything we need (including three or more large beach towels). I also make sure to have my filtered mineral water in a glass or stainless steal bottle so I am not ingesting BPA or any of the other toxins found in plastic. Klean Kanteen makes great ones that can be purchased here: Non-toxic Water Bottles. I also make sure to I have a hat and a bathing suit coverup. Right now my favorite coverups are my J. Crew tunic (pictured above next to my hats do below) and my maxi skirt/dress from La Blanca (pictured below). I am also in love with my Life is Good straw hat (pictured in all). I searched for a long time for hat that fits my large head, and finally found this one at our local Life is Good shop.
We also always bring our Bose Bluetooth Speaker. It produces quality sound, is portable and easy to stow away when it is not being used. Lastly, when I'm not using coconut oil as my sunscreen I pack and use Juice Beauty Organic Sunscreen. It is does not have the toxic and irritating ingredients most sunscreens contain, and it provides more protection than coconut oil for those long days in the sun or strong Caribbean sun.
