♡ Hello Lovelies! ♡
I hope your day has been great :) Mine certainly has. It started off with a bike ride with one of my best friends to a tea house and vegetarian delights restaurant, followed by a bike ride around my area, popping into boutiques and furniture stores. After a long bike ride back in the rain, we decided to jump on into the pool, so I decided to take some pictures of some of my pool/beach things that I bring with me! I don't usually take everything here, but these can definitely come in handy...
|Bag from Longchamp|
Obviously I'm going to need a bag to hold all of my things in. I particularly like this bag, because it has a stronger material and is waterproof.
|Phone case: Market, Wallet: Kate Hill|
Now for the essentials. If I'm going to be further away from the house, I will need these things. If it's just a pool, my phone is enough, but if I'm going down to the beach, some money to have handy in my bag is good. You never know if you're going to see that dress on the way home you've been wanting for ages and it's on sale, or you're dying for a drink or ice cream on a super hot day.

I don't always take deodorant, but it's a nice thing to have just to freshen up. As for this Aloe mist...wow. Seriously, if you're a sun burner like me, this baby will be your holy grail. And, not to mention, it smells incredible. It's a mixture of aloe and vanilla with a soft hint of banana. It's also incredible for healing and soothing burnt skin, and protecting your skin from future harm in the sun.
|Beats Solo HD in pink, Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets|
Music is another nice thing to be listening to when you're on the beach, if you just want to lay back and soak in some rays (with sunscreen on) whilst listening to your favourite beats.
|Hairbrush: freestyle wet and dry, clip: $2 from gift shop, Fedora: $6 gift shop|
This is another option for keeping your hair out of your face. The two hair ties (And can we talk about how cool it is that I caught one on camera as it's falling?) are just from the supermarket and the headband is $5 in a pack of 4 from Diva. It's also handy to have these at ready after you've finished at the beach or pool and might want to go somewhere later. Just pull your hair up into a bun and slick back your stray baby hairs around your face with a headband and bobs your uncle.
|Maybelline 'The falsies volume express' in black drama mascara, Maybelline clear smooth BB cream in 01 fresh, The Body Shop's born lippy lip balm in raspberry.|

Below: Neutrogena ultra sheer dry-touch sunscreen lotion
You know what is more drying than the sun? salt water, and when those two factors are combined, you'll be wishing for moisturiser more than ever. And if you're in an area with lots of insects, or flies are annoying you, this is another thing you'll be grabbing for: insect repellent.
Sunscreen is another pretty obvious thing to be taking to either the beach or a pool.
Ok, thats it for this time guys! Please comment below you're suggestions for more posts, as well as some of your beach/pool bag essentials!
thank you for reading! :) Until next time,
Lots of Love,
