Beach Bag Essentials

Summer is here! Of course now is the perfect time to go to the beach or the pool, and I wanted to share what I would put in my beach bag this season!

I recently found an amazing site called Naja, a great company for lingerie and swimwear! I love this brand because they not only sell cute and affordable items, but because they care about more than just their products. They employ single mothers, help women, and help the environment! Check out the website here: http://naja.co

Here’s my favorite swimsuit from Naja right now:

To go with this look, here is what is in my beach bag this season!

1. The Bag: Asos

I like this bag because it’s bright without being overwhelming.

2. The Swimsuit: Naja 

What’s more to say? I love it!

3. The Sunnies: ZeroUV

The sunglasses from ZeroUV are so cute and so affordable! Check them out!

4. The Book: Paper Towns

Paper towns (The movie!) is coming out soon, and it’s the best time to get the book before it comes to theaters! It is one of my favorite books and a great beach read.

5. The Towel: Urban Outfitters

I love the phases of the moon. It’s a cute towel without being super bright. This is more my personal style.

6. The Sunscreen: The Honest Company

I just started using this sunscreen and I think it’s perfect! It smells nice and doesn’t have a lot of greasiness to it.

7. The Cover Up: Aerie

This is simple and you can just throw it on over a colorful bathing suit.

8. The Water Bottle: CamelBak

Stay hydrated while outside! Bring water in your bag with a nice, quality water bottle.

What is in your beach bag this season?

Lush Collection

Hi everyone! I posted a new video on my channel, and I’m super happy with this one because I feel like I’m finally getting comfortable in front of a camera, and comfortable with sharing my interests. This new video is about my Lush Collection so check it out right here!

 

I also wanted to talk about something that is really cool.

If you didn’t know, Lush is a cosmetic company. They have everything from beauty products (like hair henna and lip tints) to bath products (everything smells SO GOOD). I love Lush because their products are mostly all natural, and they use different techniques to help the environment. I love this because I have sensitive skin and using all natural products helps my breakouts a lot.

My favorite part about Lush is that they fight against animal testing. I love animals and I love that by purchasing Lush products I can contribute to a great cause. Discovery Channel’s Shark Week partnered with Lush Cosmetics to bring shark slaughtering to attention. It caught my attention right away, and I signed the petition to help.

Here is the info to sign the petition and go #FinFree!

Wildfox Couture

I just found Wildfox by some miracle on the internet, and now I’m obsessed. I don’t actually know why I’m into it so much, because it’s not typically what I gravitate to, but I just love everything about this brand. The clothes are very pastel/edgy. I especially love the ads, they are like modern Marie Antoinette. On my very specific Christmas list, I included “Anything Wildfox,” because I don’t think I can afford it on my own. (Insert sad face here) (Insert your pity for my broketeenageawfulfashionbloggingskillz) Anyway, I love love love Wildfox Couture.

My favorites are the swim and the sweaters. Just look through these clothes. I wish I owned something from Wildfox! Pictures found on Weheartit.
