After Sun

A perfect day to me is spent on the beach with family and friends.  I could spend hours lounging in a beach chair, swimming in the waves and taking walks in the sand.  But after a long day soaking up the rays, a quick shower and some lotion and aloe is a must!

I have always been a fan of the Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion (I mean have you smelled the stuff… amazing!) and I have to say their After Sun lotion is the best way to end a beach day.
I first tried the After Sun lotion this past week on a trip to the outer banks and I was sold!  The lotion and aloe gel was the perfect combination to hydrate and smooth my pinkened skin.  And don’t let the aloe fool you, this isn’t the t-shirt sticking to your skin aloe, this lotion rubs in perfectly!
So when packing your beach get-a-way bag this summer, be sure to throw this little beauty in too!

* Hawaiian Tropics After Sun Lotion was sent to me for review but all opinions are all my own.

Beach Necessities

After an amazing week at the beach this past week I am back to reality and feeling a little bummed.  To reminisce and get my mind back to our little get-a-way, I wanted to share my beach necessities for a perfect few hours in the sand.

Beach Neccessities
1.     Beach Towel
2.     Beach Chair: we grabbed these chairs last summer and what a great purchase!  A cooler pack, built in bag, and pillow!  What is not to love? And it scraps the need for an actual beach bag
3.     Easy Beach Read: Love the simple trashy reads!
4.     iPhone
5.     Sunscreen
6.     Cold Beer & Water: I am pretty sure I would be perfectly content with just these two!

What are your must-haves for a beach day?
