Top 8 Beach Bag Essentials

Beach Bag

It’s finally beach season! Here are a list of my essentials when I pack for the beach.  First, a lovely tote bag by C x Mira Mikati. Since I rarely wear colorful clothing, at least my beach tote will be. Next up, I can’t forget a pair of cool shades and a hat to block the sun, and to keep my face from burning (worst feeling ever)!  If you have never tried Smashbox BB Cream now is the time! Instead of having heavy makeup on in the sun, this stuff is easy to put on and evens out your skin tone while being protected from the sun. I always need to get my tan on (with a little sun protection of course), but I love the dry oil spray because it doesn’t get your hands oily. Also, I need to keep my lips protected with lip balm! Last but not least, you may be thinking why are there panties and a lace bralette in your bag?! Well, who likes going home and sitting around in a wet bathing suit? Not me! I like to pack these so I can change into regular clothes after the beach if I’m going to be out all day. Naja has a lot of fun and colorful prints for the summer! They’re also into giving back by changing the lives of women by providing them with skills for employment, so you should check ’em out!
