Beach Essentials // Collab with theprepnxtdoor

 Hey everyone! Today I'm doing a collaboration with The Prep Nxt Door on our beach essentials. Go check out her blog, and her post. During summer, I'm always at my cottage (which is a short walk to the beach). I am in love with basking in the sun all day long. My favorite part of spending a long day at the beach is ending the day watching a beautiful sunset.
Before watching the sunset, my friends and I all went water skiing. This was our first time water skiing, and after a rough start (for me at least), we had tons of fun. When I finally was able to get up, I skied for a few minutes and then had a bad fall. Even though I fell I cannot wait to go water skiing again!

My Beach Essentials:
Sunglasses (here) // Reading material (here I have a few teenVogue and a book from my summer assignment) // A hat to protect me from the sun. I don't have sunscreen pictured , but that's also very important. I myself don't normally use sunscreen, but I know I should to keep my skin looking it's best. // My phone, I almost always snap a few pictures while at the beach. I always try to keep my phone out of the sand, because I had to replace it because my lock button was jammed most likely with sand.  Instead of buying some fancy 100$ phone case , I just use a disposable plastic baggie, then I can just toss it in the garbage when I'm done.// Sandals for when the sand is just too hot. //  A headband to keep my hair out of my face. // I use my Lilly Pulitzer tumblr to stay hydrated, which is essential when I'm in the heat all day. // I wear my Paxton1345 boxers found here. // And finally something to carry everything, I use a Lilly Pulitzer cooler tote (found here).
Here's a picture of me water skiing
Be sure to check out The Prep Nxt Door for her adorable post, here's a peek!
Thanks for reading!
