Blanket // I found my throw blanket at a Mexican market but they can be ordered online at Etsy. Also available is a cotton turkish blanket that I'm in love with. So many great colours!
Swimmers // Triangl Swimwear, Tigerlily Swimwear, & Billabong are always go-to swimmers.
Sunscreen&Aloe // Whatever smells the best! ….or Banana Boat is always a classic. At least SPF 30. Slather it on people! No one wants skin cancer. or wrinkles.
Go-to Read // A page-turning novel will always accompany me at the beach. Or a juicy magazine. Right now I'm reading a few Emily Giffin novels…a perfect easy read for a relaxing day.
Games & Activities // Bocce Ball, Frisbee, and a Football are all entertaining. Maybe do some cartwheels, handstands, or splash in the water. If there is a boardwalk, bring a longboard. Perhaps some beach yoga or meditation. More artistic? Take photos with your friends, draw/play in the sand, or make a daisy chain!
Music // Not everyone agrees music should be at the beach. It doesn't have to be blaring loud though. Just a simple portable device works or if you want, wear headphones. Just play appropriate tunes to avoid any negative attention if the public can hear it. I highly recommend Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter, or obviously Bob Marley.
Flip Flops // shoes are too much to handle.
SeaSalt Spray // for perfect beach waves, if its too hot & sticky - top knot!
Boats & Boards // Some of my goals this summer: surfing, paddle boarding, and boating (sailing, kayaking, or a speedboat)
Check the wind, weather, and tide for the perfect location.
If you're adventurous - go somewhere to cliff jump (not too high) for a good adrenaline rush!
Water water water. Make sure you stay hydrated on hot days. Even more than usual.
Get in the Water!
For all those notebook fans out there - I hope you know that line.
Make sure you cool off by going for a swim. So refreshing!!
That sums up my perfect beach day.
Now get outside and enjoy the sun xx
