I think I have spent more time on the beach this summer than any other. Not sure why, but it’s become a happy place for me, for both relaxation & Vitamin D (I’m planning to keep my tan through the winter). Spending all day on the beach only works if you have all of the essentials, here are a few of my necessities.

Snacks are important, but staying hydrated is a must. I prefer anything bubbly on a hot day, specifically two bottles of my favorites, San Pellegrino Sparkling Water & Veuve Clicquot Rose. Bright accessories such as pouches, lipsticks & towels are the perfect pops of color for beach photos. Yesterday, I rocked Heroine lip liner & lipstick by Mac! I love sunglasses & own a bunch, but my favorite pair for protection & style are the Porsche Design P8478. I love bathing suits with a bold cut. Naked Wardrobe’s bathing suits are best fitting & daring! Lastly, a good read to pass the time. My favorite magazines are Vogue and Cosmopolitan, the September Issue is a fashion bible.

And of course not photographed here is my actual camera, a MUST for beautiful photos of the beach & yourself.
