New year’s resolution-take advantage of nice weather days more often! Of course the temps took a turn after my sister Gwen left (even though we did enjoy some slight warm days as well). Sunday turned into a sun filled day that called for some much needed relaxing beach time with the family. I love the fact that we can take a short drive and enjoy the waves and sand on a regular Sunday afternoon. My outfit is of course super casual consisting of a sheer pink top with cut outs which provides a pop of color and “coverage” for my bathing suit, and my bandage skirt is easy to pull on and off in a hurry. The bathing suit top is from target and high waist bottoms are from American Apparel. The main focus of the post is what’s in my beach bag. Keeping it minimal is a must and I brought some essentials that would suit anyone on a random beach bum day. Details and links below!
Lady Gaga inspired “Bow Bun”
Beauty Essentials! Gerard Cosmetics BBplus Illumination Facial Creme (for my cheek bone highlight, bridge of nose, cupids bow and anywhere else you need some shine!) – Loreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara (Not water proof, but I dont swim regardless and it makes my lashes look flawless)- Vaseline (Dry lips, Dry knees, Elbows and all in between)- Sunnies + a Girly Drink!
Dove- Dry Spray Deodorant I received this product complimentary from @Influenster for testing purposes and have found it to be a standout product (all opinions are my own). Never having used spray deodorants before I gave it a go and really love it! The smell is wonderfully fresh and last for the entire day. The only small downside is the wait time to dry but this could have a lot to do with the amount I put (I have an ocd problem and I love to load on my deodorants in layers). This is totally unnecessary but I just love to put a lot. It does not leave a white film nor cake up like others and I felt dry and clean all day. I brought it to the beach in case I went in the water and washed off afterwards, and also to test if I needed to reapply in the sun. I really like this product and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try a new deodorant out. #trydry #walmart #contest
thanks for the review on the Dove deodorant. I’m wanting to try it, let’s see if it works for me!
Yes just dont o.d like I do since it takes forever to dry and you should be good! :0) -Ari
Love those sunglasses! Mind if I ask where you got them? 🙂
I got them at a thrift shop called Buffalo Exchange and they have absolutely no writing or markings left on the rim :0(. They are my most prized possessions for that reason alone seeing as I can’t buy them again. Nasty Gal and Urban Outfitters always have cool cat eye sunnies though, worth a try. -Ari
Thanks so much for that recommendation! I’ll look into them 🙂
