BEACH DAY ESSENTIALS

The beach is our happy place. Sand in your toes, wind in your hair, the smell of zinc. Sounds like paradise to us. We definitely don’t get to hit the beach as often as we’d like to, but when we do, there are a handful of essentials that we always make sure to pack.

Swimmers | We’ve never been ones to trek it to the beach just to bake in the sun. Once we lay eyes on any body of water, we can’t help but jump in! So of course for any trip to the beach, our cozzies are one of the first things we pack. Staying true to our obsession with bright, fun prints, a current favourite is our *Triangl Farrah-Hotel California bikini. The crochet and cobalt blue neoprene makes us feel like a bohemian mermaid everytime! Plus, it’s named after one of favourite oldies track.

Now it doesn’t take a genius to spot the theme for our last 3 essentials. The Australian sun can be quite intense with temperatures well above 40 degrees celsius on some Summer days. So sun protection is always a priority for us whether we’re at the beach or sat in traffic.

Sunscreen | When your’e talking beach essentials, SPF trumps everything as a must pack. Slip, slop, slap should be our summer anthem. No one enjoys the feeling or look of being burnt raw red, so before our swimmers, we always reach for a bottle of high protection sunscreen. We have been loving the *Sun Sense Moisturising Face. Not only is it SPF 50+, but it is the perfect size to throw into your bag, so there’s no excuse not to carry it!

*Hat | Prolonged UV exposure results in premature signs of aging such as wrinkles, pigmentation and a reduction in the skin’s firmness. With that in mind, wearing a hat on top of sunscreen is important for that added protection. Wider brimmed hats preferably with no holes/ cut-outs is best. Unfortunately we only own fedoras at the moment, but we are definitely on the hunt for something that will offer us more shade from the sun. If you have any suggestions for where we can find one, please let us know in the comments!

Sunglasses | You’ve got your skin covered, but now for your peepers. The sun can be just as harmful to your eyes, so sunnies are a no-brainer.

    1. YAY!! We always love hearing from other Aussie bloggers, Susy 🙂 We aren’t happy that Autumn has come so quickly. We’re not looking forward to dressing in layers one bit. Yes, an umbrella is definitely a must or like what some people prefer, a tent!

  2. I wish we had decent beaches here in the UK and the weather to go with them but unfortunately I’ll just have to wait until I go on holiday for a decent beach day! I think I would also add my Kindle and iPhone for listening to music whilst I work on my tan 🙂 x
