There are 3 must-have items when packing for a beach getaway. Well, if you count my phone, magazines and the makings for a margarita then there are more than 3. :) Before I left for the Caribbean, I made sure to bring along these items.
You may have seen my new beach tote in this post, but this Mar Y Sol bag was a game changer on my latest beach vacay. Not only did it fit perfectly atop of my carry-0n when traveling, but it also fit everything under the sun when heading to the beach. Two towels, a change of clothes, lots of magazines and even my new straw hat (guys, I never thought I was a hat person until I found this one.) Let’s just say, this is a must-have item when heading to the sand.
Right before my trip, Vaseline sent me their new lip tins to test out and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Not only are they the perfect size to fit in my Truffle pouch but I have a little beauty secret thanks to my great-grandmother. I have been using this trick for years, so naturally it is only fitting I spill my secrets with you today. The trick: add a little Vaseline to your eyelids and lips. It’s that simple! The sheen from the balm creates a glowing effect. It is perfect if you don’t want to wear makeup at the beach but still achieves that fresh-faced look. I tried the Rosy Lips tin for a little hint of color and I have to say, it totally did the trick. The best part about these $3.50 Target finds, they come in four different flavors in cute colorful tins.
