Summer Getaway Essentials

Summer, and all the fun that comes with it is right around the corner...

Whether you've got an amazing beach vacation or just a quick day trip planned, don't forget these Summer Getaway Essentials to keep you fabulous:

1. A great hat will keep unwanted UV rays off of your face and scalp, mask dirty, beachy hair, and hide your blushing cheeks if you read my #3 essential.

2. Beach-inspired jewelry. I'm really loving the summer line by Stella & Dot. Chic, fabulous, casual enough to wear with a great cover up at the beach, yet still dressy enough to wear to a Summer soiree. 

3. Something juicy to read on the beach. If you can't indulge in a trashy novel on vacation, then when else can you? I'll admit it - I am loving the Fifty Shades of Grey series. While I could do without all of the *ahem* spanking, I really am loving the story. If that's not quite your style, though Sophie Kinsella writes some of my favorite beach-reads!

4. A tinted lip balm with spf. Not only will it protect and moisurize your lips, but it will give them some color too. My favorites are by Revlon, Dior and Philosophy.

5. A great tote that can double as your purse and beach carryall, all summer long. I'm loving The Lulu Tote (great name!) by Stephanie Johnson

6. Oversized sunglasses. Big, old sunglasses are a necessary item 365 days a year. If you don't have a pair yet, what are you waiting for?!

7. Good-sized traveler for all of your toiletries. Roomie enough for all your beauty must-haves, I really love the ML Traveler by Stephanie Johnson!

8. Cute towels! Target has the best selection of towels, and they're all under $20. Grab a few!

.....and sunscreen (should) go without saying. I use THIS one for my body, THIS one for my face and THIS one for my girls.

Do you have any fun trips planned this summer?? I want to know! xo!!

Love Revlons lip butters! They are so yummy and I love the way the leave my lips feeling moisturized all day! And 50 shades.....I got sucked in as well and just finished the series, is it weird that I'm actually sad it's over??!! And as for blushing - I am now a permanent shade of rosy pink, thank you very much!!

BWAHAHAHA!!! Dying over the blushing comment. GREAT picks my friend! I am loving the hat, I just bought my first lip butter and I finished the series weeks ago. Oversized sunnies are always a must!
