Well, I’m off to Eastern Europe in the next few days (yay!) where we’ll be doing some sightseeing, wine drinking, spending time with family, wine drinking and laying by the beach. (Rough, I know). If you know me, you know I tend to be a bit of a vampire and avoid the sun at all costs. So what’s 7 days in Montenegro going to look like for me? Well, here are some of the best items I’ll be stuffing in my beach bag.
1. Vitamin A Bikini
I’m never one to fork over a fortune for swimsuits, but my Vitamin A reversible bikini is one of the best swimsuit investments I’ve ever made.
2. Tory Burch Cat’s Eye Sunglasses
I’ve been looking long and hard for a great pair of Cat’s Eye sunglasses and struck gold when I found this pair of Tory Burch 56mm Cat’s Eye Sunglasses. They don’t hit my cheeks (something my big cheeks and I have a problem with) and the curve is subtle, too.
3. Oil Blotting Sheets
Being seaside usually means more humid than I’m used to weather, so some oil-blotting sheets to dab any excess oil is definitely in order. I like to stash Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets in my bag to quickly dab away any oil without wiping off my makeup.
4. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
Want airbrushed legs to look like a supermodel? Try Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. It’s a great way to hide my unsightly spider veins, and they’re great for covering up discoloration and stretch marks, too. Trust.
5. SkullCandy Hesh 2.0 Headphones
I cannot stand those teenie tiny earplugs that constantly fall out of my ears. So I recently upgraded to this pair Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 headphones and have never looked back since. They come with a convenient little carrying bag, too.
6. Zac Posen iPad case
A good iPad case is always a necessity, which is how I fell in love with my Z Spoke Zac Posen Shirley Bow iPad Case. Mine is in a beautiful, feminine lavender color but the glossy black is just as lovely.
7. San Diego Hat Co. Sun Hat
Who doesn’t love a big sun hat? The problem, though, is that big sun hats do NOT travel well. Enter San Diego Hat Co.’s utterly awesome collapsable sun hats that fold down into tiny space-saving hats which you can unfold into that giant, glam floppy hat, without it having lost its shape. I’m in love…
