I love a good beach bag but I love the must have items that I carry in it: Sunscreen, bug spray, a good cover up and of course sunglasses are in my bag. Check out my favorites this season!
- A good Cover-Up – I never really noticed a difference in cover-ups until I tried one from Coolibar. This company makes clothing, swimwear and hats with what they call at UPF (ultraviolet Protection Factor, which is a rating given for fabrics similar to SPF on sunscreens). They were nice enough to send me one to test out and it is sooooo multifunctional! The color block tunic makes a great cover-up but is also perfect for a summer night out. If it is cool out pair it with leggings for a bright summer outfit. I received so many complements when I wore mine out!
- Bug Repellent – people stare at me funny when they see this little contraption on my hip but I swear it works so I don’t leave home without it. The New Terminix ALLCLEAR SideKick Mosquito Repelleris an all natural, clip-able mosquito repeller. The fan-based diffusion technology circulates 100% safe, all-natural repellent of lemongrass, cinnamon, peppermint, & geranium oils. It is non-toxic. The cost is $9.99 and includes 1 clip-able unit, 2 AAA batteries, 1 refill. Available at terminixallclear.com, homedepot.com, amazon.com.
- Beach Bag – since my kids are older they tend to carry their own bags so I have opt for a smaller bag to carry my items in. My favorites include of course Lands End and LLBean but my new favorite are the Scout bags and I am loving my mini vineyard vines find from several years ago! I still get complements on it!
Disclosure: Coolibar as well as Terminix sent me the products to test out and review. All opinions are my own.
