I Got My Toes In The Water

Ladies, I've been reading for some time now about all of your beach escapades and I was so so jealous. Well, this weekend it was finally time for us Michiganders to hit the beach!

With 80+ degree weather, my madre and I hit the beach on Saturday!

Well, not exactly a beach beach. More like a grassy beach on a small lake.


But the point is, I finally got to lay outside and get my tan on! While turning into a Sun Goddess, I decided a blog post all about my beach essentials would be the perfect way to start off the summer!

Obviously, the very first thing you need is a bathing suit! This isn't Europe, people! Cover the goods up! I'm pretty obsessed with bikinis and am always pulled to the Swimwear section of Target as soon as they set it up in early January. {Oh yes! I've been meaning to pick up a new swimsuit since its the arctic tundra outside!} I'm a freak about tan lines so I stick to bikini tops that are strapless or have detachable straps.

A cute cover-up is always a necessity! Saturday, I used this cotton dress from Target as a cover-up. It's light weight and colorful and I got a lot of compliments!


I feel like I need to add sunscreen on this list, even though I hate it. {I know, I know. I'm awful!} The main reason I hate it is because it irritates my sensitive skin, especially my face. But don't be getting your panties in a bunch, I still wear the awful stuff. I've found a sunscreen brand that works well for my skin and doesn't make my face feel like my skin is melting off. 

I love Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen! And they have the best tanning oil {with SPF 15} that I have ever found!

And, in my opinion, the most important beach {or pool} essential is a good read! This is where I need your help, ladies! I don't know what to read! {And PLEASE don't recommend Fifty Shades of Gray...NOT my style!} I must confess that I am currently reading Lauren Conrad's second book Sweet Little Lies {and yes, that means I read the first book, too} but I am looking for a good summer read! Last summer, I read every single Nicholas Sparks book and I'm so upset there are no more for me to indulge in! What are some of your favorite summer reads? I need something amazing to download on my Kindle Fire!

Next weekend can't come quick enough. I'm in need of another day out in the sun! 

Happy Monday, ladies! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

xoxo, J

Try Aveeno sunscreen for your face- it's awesome and just feels like lotion. I hate sunscreen but have to wear it!

Lesley @ my lively mind said...
