Going to the beach is one of the best things about summer. I love laying on a towel on the warm sand, taking in the scent of the salt water, and listening to the sounds of seagulls and crashing waves. It is so relaxing, almost spa-like for me.
After the beach I love to grab dinner or a drink on the boardwalk, so many times I will pack a few extras to keep me looking fresh.
I always carry basics like sunscreen (a definite must!), sunglasses, and hair ties in my beach bag. Lately I'm ridiculously attached to my big floppy hat, and I also like to have a few low maintenance beauty products, as well as a casual, airy dress and sandals on hand for afterwards.
For going from sunshine to sundown, multi-use products are essential. Nobody wants to carry their entire cosmetics bag to the beach!
