We seem to be switching between beach worthy weather and back to winter on a daily basis at the moment! Down in Brighton we have been really lucky though in that we've had some absolutely spectacularly sunny days, and what better way to spend them than by the sea! I thought I'd share a peek inside my beach bag (which tends to be a fairly boring canvas bag) and see what I take to the beach with me!
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no chance of me getting in the sea in Brighton, but I do love sitting in a bikini to soak up some rays. My current favourite is this gorgeous paisley print top from Matalan (bottoms here), it's super comfy and has just a little bit of padding to keep you in place! With that of course comes some very necessary sunscreen, I like this SPF30 from Marks & Spencer. This Never Lose Your Cherry SPF Balm ℅ Anatomicals is a must have for me too as I'm prone to mouth freckles, plus, noone loves crispy lips! I keep my sunglasses on too! I've been loving this Moringa Body Sorbet ℅ The Body Shop for cooling down after sitting in the sun, its so cooling and soothing on hot skin. I've recently discovered the magic that is facial sprays, there is nothing quite as refreshing as a lavender scented cool mist to the face after sitting out in the sunshine. This Spray Misty For Me spray ℅ Anatomicals is soothing for skin as well as cooling, and smells beautiful. A drink (or three) is always a must have, and I've discovered a local farm shop sells these delicious Arizona Green Tea with Honey and I just can't get enough! Other than that, I love just chilling in the sunshine with something good to read, I'm currently making my way through A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin on my Kindle Paperwhite.
What are your essentials for a day at the beach? I'd love a peek inside your beach bag!
