This year the Figue Tuk Tuk tote will be my beach bag of choice, I'm a sucker for pom poms and tassels, they make me happy!
My current beach splurge is the brand new hermes beach towel cape -- it is basically an hermes towel (the most luxurious and colorful towels in the world!) fashioned into a cover up with arm holes - crazy chic!!
I can't hit the sand without my Sun Bum lip and face sunblock stick. It really works, doesn't wash off in the waves and smells divine - kind of like a delicious snack without any calories:)
Chick Lit is a MUST while sitting under my umbrella with the waves washing over my toes. No War and Peace for me on the beach. This year the first two in my bag will be Killing Monica by Candace Bushnell and The KnockOff by Lucy Sykes. C'mon, who can resist??
Hydration, hydration, hydration... my choice is the Kor One Water Vessel. It keeps my water clean and cool and looks like something from the future - a fun conversation starter!
Lastly, Josie Maran Argon Oil - I'm obsessed -- in my hair, on my skin; face, cuticles, elbows -- anything that needs moisturing. It makes your skin look youthful and blowy.
