I’m beyond excited for my Florida trip coming up this week, so I’ve been packing and shopping all day to get everything together. I haven’t been to the beach in years, and I’ve never been to Florida, so it should be a great vacation! I definitely took advantage of this trip and bought a few new bikinis, summer clothes, and a well-needed bag, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites and everything I’m packing in my beach bag.
Beach bag (similar, the original isn’t sold anymore!) – I can’t tell you how much I love this bag. It’s a great size, not too huge to carry around but big enough to fit my towel and other bulky stuff. I found it at Target and it’s under $50, too!
Flash Tattoos – Honestly how are these so cheap??
iPhone + Case – When I bought my iPhone, I was set on getting gold, but I didn’t even think about how my case would hide it. Then, I realized clear cases exist, and I couldn’t resist.
Wristlet – Another great deal I found at my local Lilly store. I usually carry a wallet, but I wanted to have something that holds my phone as well for when I don’t have pockets or a bag with me.
GoPro – I don’t plan on taking my phone or camera anywhere near the water, so a lot of my pictures from this trip will be taken with my GoPro. I haven’t gotten much use out of it yet, so I’m excited to play around with it on this trip!
Swimsuit – I didn’t have much luck finding swimsuits until a few days ago, when my Target restocked with several new swimsuits that actually work for my body. They’re not always the cheapest though, so definitely wait to get them on sale if you can!
Makeup Bag – The one disadvantage of carrying a big bag is how hard it can be to find little things inside, so I got this cute makeup bag for beauty products, sun screen, and anything tiny.
Lush Tea Tree Toner – This product is meant to be a toner for your face, but honestly it has tons of uses. I like spraying a bit in my hair if I need to freshen it up, so it’s nice to carry around!
Nail Polish – This been my favorite summer color of the year. It’s all I’ve worn, so I’m constantly touching it up and carrying it around in case I chip some off.
There are a few things I didn’t get into the picture, like my not-so-photogenic charging cords and the camera I took these with, but you get the gist. If you have any favorite beach essentials or recommendations for things to do near Destin, let me know in the comments! I won’t be checking my blog very often, so I apologize in advance if I take a while to get back to you!
