Summer Essentials-What I keep in my beach bag.



Summer Essentials- What I keep in my beach bag that I can’t live without…


Ya’ll me and the husband are kid FREE in Florida this week it’s been so long I’m not sure I know how to act. I’m here for the sunshine and as much beach time as possible. Take a look what’s in my bag for a full fun day so I don’t have to go back and forth to the resort. All I need is my bag and okay maybe the…. Tiki bar!

Whether you like to lug around your summer must-haves and beach basics, a properly stocked beach tote is essential in promising you’ll have a fabulous beach escape.  


These are my beach bag must-haves:

  1. Bottled Iced Coffee I’m a caffeine junkie I admit it!
  2. Every beach bag needs a towel mine happens to be super cute and monogrammed (Hey I’m from GA we monogram everything!)
  3. An assortment of reading materials is defiantly a MUST. Hello relaxation.
  4. Sunglasses not only protect my eyes from the bright rays, but the perfect shades add a flair of style at the beach.
  5. Suave Body wash is ALWAYS in my bag in case I use the outdoor shower at the resort… I’m good to go and my favorite scent refreshes me perfectly!

Pull together these beach bag essentials and tuck them in a cute tote and you are ready for the beach.

What items to do you toss in your bag for a full fun day in the sun on the sand!! I’m a gypsy beach girl at heart and when I go to the beach I’m there to stay on the sand!!

When it comes to my body wash I’m picky I can’t help it my ALL TIME FAVES ARE:

Cocoa Butter & Shea (This is DEF my beach pick)

Ocean Breeze

Tropical Coconut

They all 3 smooth my skin perfectly, and the scents are THE best! Do you have a suave Favorite. If you don’t yet you’re clearly missing out so…. run and take the quiz and find out which is THE one for you! I mix my collection up I couldn’t be faithful to one, can you?

    I am a user of Suave. I really like the scent of the ocean breeze, It leaves my skin so soft and smooth. And the scent after bathing is still on my body. So refreshing
  27. Julie Syl says

    This looks like a great essential for beach. I do really like Suave especially that coconut butter & shea, I really love the scent of it.
  28. says

    Those are great things to have at the beach. I use a lot of them myself. And cold coffee is great idea for us coffee-lovers.
  29. Our Family World says

    My beach bag contents are similar to yours! The only thing different is that I always take a medical emergency kit with me, complete with all our rescue meds.
  30. says

    Lucky you being in Florida, I live in Ireland where we have no need for beach bags as it is always raining. Have to admit to do love cocoa butter and shea and anything that smells of coconut. We don't get that brand here in Ireland but when I'm next in the States I'll have a look for it.
  31. Takara Ayana says

    I keep the same essentials in my bag except the coffee. I've only been to one of the beaches you mentioned :(. Need to explore more!
  32. says

    Living in Florida I feel like a lot of these were car must haves since you never knew when you might end up at the beach!
  33. says

    The creams look great, I am sucker for nice smelling creams, in various scents.
  34. says

    Oh, I have a feeling these smell absolutely amazing!! and enjoy your florida time alone girlfriend!!

    Suave has never done me wrong! And I'm super jealous of the vacay. Enjoy!
