In the fifth post of my holiday series I thought I’d share with you my beach essentials. When going to the beach it is always ideal to pack light, but there are some items you just can’t live without – these are my personal choices.
I like to have a bag that can easily fit in my towel and a few other essentials. I love the large clear beach bags from New Look, but found this palm tree backpack on a special offer, also from New Look, so went for this. It costs £15 at the moment, and is also doubling as my hand luggage bag.
The first thing to go in my bag is of course a large towel for the beach. This one is a bath sheet so the perfect size. Next up I pop in my bikini. I have a choice of four packed, but the one featured above is from New Look, and cost £9.99 for the top, and £7.99 for the bottoms. To go alongside these I popped in my flipflops and sunglasses, both from Primark, and another bargain purchase at £1 each. I love how there’s three colours all blended together on the frame of the sunglasses.
If I’m at a beach wearing a bikini then obviously a fair bit of skin is on show, this means sun cream. I will be taking my Piz Buin Tan & Protect tan accelerating oil spray in SPF 30 – I am hoping this will not only protect my skin, but also help encourage it to tan. I will be writing a full review once I’m back from holiday.
