Guest Post...{Beach Bag Must-Haves}

Hello, Eat.Pray.Love.Run readers!!

I'm so excited Leslie asked me to do a guest post while she is enjoying a fun beach getaway with her hubby {of one year}!

I'm Jen from Down with the Dearmores. Leslie and I go way back, so I have many many stories I could share, but I'm not sure she would allow me to post again! She is one of the most fun loving, caring, and genuine friends one could wish and hope for. I've been blessed to call her my friend for almost 17 years {wow, that makes us old}!

When you get a chance, check out our little blog. I blog about anything from marriage, life as a new mommy, styles and products I love, recipes, and little randoms here and there.

Speaking of fun beach getaways, I thought I would write about some of my favorite {beach bag must-haves} from head to toe. So here goes... 

 Neon Straw Beach Tote. There are just too many fun bags out there! I'm loving all the bright neon colors this summer, so I thought this looked fun and easy to carry.

 Embellished Cover-up. Not only just a fun cover-up, but a cute and comfortable outfit for a day on the beach.

Sunny Days Fedora. Now, there's nothing like a floppy beach hat, but sometimes a girl just needs something a little different. I loved not only the look, but the price as well. Francescas never fails!

Michael Kors Sunglasses. Simply a must-have {beach or no beach}.
Laura Mercier tinted SPF lip balm. This is a new one for me, but can't wait to actually put it in my beach bag. I've heard nothing but good feedback!

SPF towelettes...brilliant! This is an easy way to apply sunscreen to your face anywhere at anytime!

Philosophy 'here comes the sun'. Great product. Not too thick and heavy when you apply it.

 Flat Sandal, These are so cute on as well as comfortable!
So I think we've covered from head to toe...maybe you have some must-haves we should all know about! Feel free to share! I know a good read is also a beach bag must-have, so I think that would be a good post for Leslie to do when she comes back (wink, wink)!

Ladies, I think it's time to plan a tropical getaway! Have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
