No back to school blog posts here as there is still plenty of summer left. Today on @NECN we walked through the best packed beach bag with a few neat items. Here they are!
- Of course I love the traditional bag from LLBean and they make great towels as well but what is very trendy now is the nautical bag. SailorBags are made with actual sails! So cute in red and blue and they have great accessories to go along with the beach bags.
- I do have a ton of flip flops but love the Oka b. line of flip flops as they are comfortable and colorful and the starfish is pretty trendy right now. They are available at retailers locally including Fairmont Copley in Boston.
- I am always looking for new trends in sunscreen. The Vichy line of sunscreens available from local CVS stores have great technology like the mousse lotion sunscreen and dry finish lotion. I also love supergoop spray and their sunscreen wipes! The Paul Mitchell line of sun care for hair is a must have for moms that color their hair. The Sun recovery Hydrating Shampoo and after sun masque is so soothing and both have a UVeil™ to lock in color before sun exposure. The Sun Shield conditioning spray softens hair and adds shine as well as protects hair from the sun and prevents color fade.
- Sand toys for the kids are a must and we love this cupcake set from Melissa and Doug available at Boston-based wairfair.com Wayfair.com is the largest online retailer of home goods. The cupcake set comes with its own bag and its pretty portable and will keep the kids entertained for hours. They also sell this portable speaker from ihome – a must on the beach!
