Hey Guys! 

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer, I can't even begin to describe how jealous I am of everyone whose already been on holiday. I'm hoping too book something last minute very soon just to go and find the sunshine for a week! 

Anyway today's post is all about beach bag essentials featuring one of my favourite online fashion brands, Boohoo! I was so excited when Boohoo contacted me and asked me to pick a couple of favourites from their summer shop, although this made me realise I actually wanted the entire website at the time! Picking my favourite items was hard as Boohoo have so much to choose from. In the end I decided to go for some bright and colourful items for the beach as I often find myself turning to black and white clothing most days... 

So here are just a few things which I would normally include in my beach bag. Suncream is an obvious one for me as I have fairly pale skin and tend to burn really easy. When i'm away in really hot weather I often start off by using a factor 20, which is why i've chosen the 'Nivea Protect and Bronze.' 
Another sun cream I really like a the moment is the 'Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration' - it's really moisturising and leaves my skin with a  nice shine whilst protecting from the sun. 

Also in my beach bag are the essentials such as sunnies and a hair tie, something that definitely came in handy when shooting this post as the weather was so windy down at the seafront. Both of these, which are photographed above are from Boohoo. Another essential, obviously would be a beach towel, this one I found in Primark and was just £4.60 - Bargain! 

 Another thing I often keep with me is a spray, just to keep you feeling and smelling fresh. I wouldn't ever take one of my more expensive perfumes to the beach so this bottle of 'Mist You Madly' by 'Soap & Glory' is the perfect beach bag spray. It's just £6.50, so I wouldn't be too worried if this went missing whilst at the beach. 

Lastly, in my beach bag I would often carry a hair brush. This is a new favourite of mine - it's a 'Lee Stafford Argan Oil Paddle Brush'- this brush is infused with Argan Oil so it leaves your hair feeling conditioned and with a healthy shine! 

For beachwear I chose these really cute pom pom shorts as I thought they would be perfect for just wearing around the pool or at the beach. They're super comfy and will go with most things too. Boohoo also do these in a whole different variety of colours and styles so I may have to treat myself to some more of these! 

My swimsuit is also from Boohoo, I loved this style as it covers up a bit more of my 'less toned' areas - leaving me feeling body confident on the beach! This is on the website at only £18.00 and also comes in a variety of colours including a gorgeous mint green! The links are all below. 

I'd love to know what are your beach bag essentials? 

Hope you've enjoyed this post!

Lots of Love
