Since we leave for the beach in under a week, I’m beginning to make a list of things that I must remember to pack. I’ve compiled some of that list here, as my most highly recommended items to consider when packing for your next beach vacation…
Carly Straw Tassel Tote – You gotta have a good beach bag. Francesca’s carries many affordable beach bags as well as straw clutches, like this one here, perfect to take to dinner when on a beach vacation.
Pool Central Giant Inflatable Flamingo Pool Float in Pink – Because who doesn’t need a giant hot pink flamingo shaped float, large enough to hold 2 adults? I plant to tie this baby up to my overwater bungalow in Bora Bora… the only issue is that the thing weighs 10 lbs… I guess I’ll be carrying on board the flights with me. Stay tuned for pics…
Gopro Hero 6 Black Camera – I love my GoPro. The coolest thing about this is that I was able to attach one of the sticky mounts to the top of my full-face snorkel mask and get footage while I’m snorkeling, hands free! Here is a video that I shot with this camera last summer in Greece.
BP. Floppy Straw Look Hat – If nothing else on this list, buy a floppy sun hat. The sun will do damage to your face and the heat is no joke.
YETI Rambler 30 oz – The price of bottled water is astronomical on certain islands, but the water is perfectly clean (cleaner than here!) and safe to drink. Make sure to bring a Yeti to keep it cool.
SEPHORA COLLECTION – #Lipstories Lipstick – Yes, lipsticks are a beach essential. I’m loving the new Sephora #colorstories collection. These are hyperpigmented shades that go on smooth and cost $8 each. I have lipsticks 3x that price that aren’t as good.
Backpack Cooler – Not only is bottled water expensive, so are the cocktails and beers. We’re taking a backpack cooler to fill with ice & beer before we head out.
Amalfi Belted One Piece – I’ve literally not worn a one-piece swimsuit since I was about 10 years old… but this is my year. I’m digging this retro print/style with the added belt. It will also be much more practical while diving and snorkeling.
What essentials would you add to the list? Help a sister out. I need to start packing cause lord knows I’m a procrastinator and overpacker… not a good combo.
