Beach Day!

Summer is here! That also means beach season is here! Here is a list of things I think are essential for a great beach day!

Beach Day!

1) This wetsuit protects you from sand, sun, and waves. Plus, it makes you look super cool and experienced.(Even if you’re not!) 2) These super cute jean shorts will look great as a cover up over the wetsuit when your ready for a snack. 3) Waterproof mascara is a MUST for any beach day, because who wants runny mascara? 4)  You can keep up with your friends, listen to music, and post pictures to Facebook immediately with an iPhone! 5) A skim board is my favorite kind of beach day fun! Although you fall a lot at first, it is definitely worth it to learn! 6) This waterproof camera sticks to your board so it can capture all the action of you surfing, skimming, or bodyboarding! 7) These rubber sandals are really durable, and cute! 8) This pretty tote is fun and brand name! Plus, it’s big enough to hold all your stuff. 9) This fun Bloomingdales towel is great for laying on at the beach! 10) These sunglasses make you look super  cool while protecting your eyes from the harsh sun. 11) Another favorite beach activity of mine is bodyboarding, and this is a really nice board! 12) Sunscreen is SUPER important, and this one is filled with antioxidants to keep your skin healthy. I hope you enjoyed this post and will have a great summer!
Also, here is a link for a video on skim boarding:
