A TRAVEL BLOGGER'S GUIDE TO THE BEACH


Summer is here! Break out your sunscreen and start looking for a bathing suit online, because it's about to get hot in here. If you're like me your ideal summer day includes lounging around, being tan and sipping on something cold (preferably brought to you by a handsome boy-toy) but if you don't have that, never fear, I have the perfect cure-all for your summer blues. A beach day. 

STEP 1: THE BASICS

Before we dive into the sand or into GLAM-BEACH-ing we need to start off with the basics. These are your essential, can't travel without, get 100% out of your trip items.


  1. Sunscreen

  2. Beach Towels (You'll need two or more of these if you plan to get into the surf.)

  3. Sunglasses

  4. Hat

  5. Bathing Suit (Not essential but recommended as comfortable and cute. Every body is a beach body when you put on a bathing suit.)

  6. Drinkable Water (Remember folks, you can't drink the sea.)

  7. Book, music player and/or magazines.

  8. Portable cooler

  9. Change of clothes

  10. Snacks
