beach bag essentials :: stuff steph does

I think this will be the 42,876th time I’ve mentioned it, but, B and I are headed to the beach this week! Woot! Design Sponge posted this awesome diy beach bag project out of a mesh screen and since I am completely in love with it, I used it as inspiration for planning my next few days of soaking in the oceanside rays. Here’s some of my essentials for beach days:

1. A good read. I’ve started this book already and I’m sure I’ll finish it up this week. // 2. Keep a hat on to protect your hair and scalp. How adorable is this hat from Target? // 3. Sunscreen is a must! I always put stronger, oil-free stuff on my face to keep up my youthful appearance 🙂 // 4. Need to stay hydrated when the sun is beating down on you all day. // 5. I typically keep the books away from the beach because I don’t like to get them sandy, so I read magazines down by the water. I try to keep it well rounded balancing out the modern design with a healthy dose of celebrity gossip.

Alright I suppose I should actually pack instead of blogging about it! Enjoy your Tuesday!

    Love it! (The magazines part especially, anytime we travel I stop to get the silly gossip magazines too …) You will have to let me know how the book is. I am looking for a good read when we go on vacation this fall … Have a good trip! 🙂
