So you saw what I wear to the beach, then you saw what I wear at the beach – now it’s time to see what I tote to the beach! I’m pretty simple when it comes to my overall grooming habits in the summer as it is already, but when it comes to the beach, I really try to keep it as bare bones as possible. A touch of lip balm, my favourite summer scent…that’s about it in terms of “beautifying” myself. I’d rather carry products that take care of my skin given how much time I spend in the sun. Here are a few of my must-haves:
1. Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess
a bit sweet, a bit salty – perfect for the beach
hydrating and cooling – the most amazing consistency
perfect for my fine hair – beach-ready hair all day long!
4. Givenchy Mister Bright Light Pen
if there’s one thing I do year-round, it’s highlighting!
the perfect bronzed glow for the summer
5. Banana Boat Sunscreen SPF 30
this one really does stay on, even in water
so in love with this – amazing texture & colour
7. Shape Magazine
for some reason, I only want fitness mags at the beach!
8. Joe Fresh Fresh Ideas Notebook
the beach is a creative space for me – I
love to have something to jot down ideas between naps!

I’ve searched high and low and for some reason, I still can’t find a proper beach bag that I love – any suggestions? Until then, my stunning Roots bag is my go-to. It’s deceptively small – my beach towel and everything pictured fits in there easily! The only thing – getting all sand out of my things is an absolute must! Let me know if you know of any beach bag finds :).

    All I take to the beach is a towel and a gigantic bottle of spf 100! You really know how to do the beach right. You should check out Charming Charlie for bags. Actually, I'm not sure if they're in Canada??

    I am absolutely loving this series. I wish I lived closer to the ocean, landlocked lakes aren't quite the same!

    I've been seeing so many people talk about using sea salt spray on the beach and I really want to try it out!
