Sunny Days are Here to Stay! Being from Southern California I have spent countless hours at the beach, and I have some awesome tips for your next summer getaway. So let me give you my beach must-haves! 

 

The sun can be draining and that’s why you gotta make sure you stay nourished! First things first, nothing tastes better than fruit at the beach! Fresh strawberries, kiwi, and some pineapple pieces? YUM. There is just something so refreshing about it! I love to make little fruit kabobs and stick them in my cooler, so easy and you’re less likely to get sand all over them! You can mix whatever fruits you like! I get a ton of my favorite recipes from the Food Network. 

 

 

Swimming, playing games, surfing, and just laying in the sun really makes you thirsty! Obviously water is the best choice to keep you hydrated but sometimes you just wanna mix it up. Easy and delicious ( here’s a good recipe) all you gotta do is cut up some strawberries, lime pieces, and some basil! Add it all together and mix it up with ice! Add in carbonated water if you wanna get that crisp taste! This is so refreshing and yummy as well! 

 

 

 

We got snacks and drinks covered so let’s get into the games! Now I love to play a little sand volleyball but if I’m bringing a game, I’m definitely bringing  Spikeball ! Fast-paced, fun, and competitive, this game is always a crowd pleaser! All you need is 4 players and you got yourself a fun game to play all afternoon! 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely love the feeling of laying out in the sun after swimming, now to do that you gotta make sure your towels up to par! My personal favorite is those big fluffy ones that look like there for two people, that way you keep the sand off you while you dry! Go to Amazon and look up oversized beach towels and you can have your pick! Any color works, but it’s summertime! Let’s get colorful, pick a fun pattern or a bright yellow or red!

 

 

Now if you love to tan let me put you on my favorite tanning sprays! I’ll give you my top two tanning sprays one with no SPF and one with some! 

The Hawaiian Tropic Dark tanning oil is cheap and totally delicious smelling! This stuff really works so be careful with how long you layout and how much you use. Be responsible with your skin and I recommend wearing sunscreen with this stuff! Now a close second with the benefit of SPF is  Sunbum Tanning oil, this one is moisturizing and smells like coconuts with SPF 15!

 

Summertime and feelin’ fine! Go out and catch some rays at the beach! Always remember to leave footprints of kindness wherever you go!
