Beach Essentials

Outfit: HERE 

Yes, it may be August, but I have decided to make the most of the last few weeks of Summer. For those of you that know me or have been following me for the past few months, I guess you'll already know that there is no way I'd rather spend my Summer than at the beach. So that's what I've been doing every single day this Summer - I even work at the beach - so I'd like to consider myself to be a highly qualified beach day professional at this stage, so nonetheless, here are all my beach day essentials (and I've even popped clickable links to all my faves below!).

Beach ready with Missguided

1. The Beach Blanket
This is a can't-live-without must have piece. There is nothing worse than going to the beach and having nowhere to sit/lie without getting covered in sand. Primark/Penneys usually have beach blankets in stock during the Summer, but just about anything will do!

2. Sun Cream
This is a given.. or at least it should be a given. Every single time the sun comes out it seems as though the whole of Ireland turns red, and although you may tan underneath after, this is definitely a super avoidable situation. It's amazing how we all know so much about skin cancer and it's causes, yet we're all so slow to try to prevent it. I usually wear the La Roche Posay SPF 30

3. The Picnic
Is it really a beach day is you don't bring a super cute, totally insta-worthy picnic? Nah, I didn't think so. Bonus points for anyone that has a cute picnic basket (but if you don't, then don't worry - a backpack will do!). Oh, and don't forget the flask of hot chocolate!

4. Reading Material
Okay, so this isn't totally a beach essential when you're with a group of friends, but if you, like me, find yourself on your own at the beach then your favourite book or latest magazine can really help pass the time! For me, nothing says relaxation like an issue of Stellar magazine and some chill time on the beach!

5. The Sunglasses
An obvious essential - but for more reasons than one. The salt water always does crazy things to my hair, so I usually like to just wear my sunglasses in my hair after I go for a swim just so I look a lil' bit more normal - because my mane cannot be tamed

Until next time,
