Beach Bag Must Haves!

As a Florida girl, we spent an insane amount of time at the beach or poolside so, having the right items make for an enjoyable and worry free time!

Obviously a beach bag to carry all of your items is a no brainer. A cooler is also an awesome idea but it isn't exactly always convenient (or easy) to haul my Yeti around so, I picked up this lilly cooler for my drinks of choice, snacks, and ice. 

Sunscreen:no brainer and this is the brand I swear by. Not only is the packaging adorable but this brand actually stays on after you have been in the water. 

Garnier's Hydra Recharge line is amazing for pumping moisture back into my hair after salt, sun or chlorine has gotten in it. This line has a leave-in conditioner that I make sure to throw into my bag and whenever we are ready to leave the beach/pool, I spray a large amount in. 

Flight 001 bags are great for keeping wet things wet and dry things dry. We will usually hit a bar or restaurant on our way home so instead of walking in soaking wet or leaving wet clothes all over the car, we throw our stuff in these bags. 

Drink spikers helloooo most fabulous invention ever! nothing grosses me out more than sandy drinks. koozie or not, your cold can will get a sandy mess on the bottom and well, that doesn't work for me so!

This Addi and Jack cover up is not only insanely adorable but, it is convertible. This can become a dress or skirt so if a bar or restaurant is in your future, this would be a fabulous option! 

A hat is also a grand idea. sunglasses cause weird tan marks and hats are fun when you're drunk! 

Some other really great ideas to pack are:
-rubber flip flops
-baby powder (gets sand off)
-cheap sunglasses
-hair ties
-external battery pack for phones
-make up wipes/baby wipes

What is a must have for you at the beach?
