What's in my beach bag?!

Hi Friends,
Since yesterday I posted about our fun beach day, I figured today I would follow up with what I carry in my beach bag. I have received tons and tons of requests to do this so here it is! 
This is what my beach bag looks like, I got it as a present last year from my girlfriend for being in her wedding party. I absolutely love it, it's so sturdy and roomy but super light weight. I love that it has my initial on it :)

Beach towels are a must of course, I got mine from target, you can get them pretty much anywhere and they aren't super pricey.

Sun screen and other goodies. The blue one is  a Coppertone Sport one and I love it because it stays on pretty well even if you go in the water, the next one is my Banana Boat Deep Tanning Dry Oil, I use it on my legs and tummy to get some nice color, it doesn't have a very high SPF so I layer it on top of the Coppertone one. This stuff is so good because it doesn't leave you greasy and oily like the original deep tanning oil, this dries out in seconds but still helps build a nice tan. The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch is one I use if I lay out but don't go swimming, I like it a lot but doesn't stay as well as the Coppertone one if you're in and out of the water. The last one is a Neutrogena Clear Face Breakout Free, I use this only on my face and I have never broken out from it, it't pretty much the only one I use on my face. 

Speakers for our iPhone! 

My sarong for when I am not in the water or laying out, I like to cover my bum! :)

My husband always packs his solar panel, it's so awesome and we can charge our phones because they do tend to die quickly from playing music. I love my genius hubby! :)

One thing I forgot to take a picture of is my hair brush. I always bring my Tangle Teaser Brush to the beach or pool with me, it helps untanlge your hair with no pain, I got mine from amazon and love it to pieces! 
Happy hump day!

  7. These are the perfect things to take with you while visiting beach! I would advise you to use Coppertone Sport in combination with another sunscreen because it does not provide full protection against sunburn. I also recommend that you choose the 50 SPF version of this sunscreen, as even this high amount of SPF does not offer very much protection from the sun.
