Beach Bag Essentials (+ Giveaway!)

I am at the beach 2+ days a week. It's down stairs so it's hard not to go soak up the sun for at least a few minutes a day. Given that that is our lifestyle we have a beach bag by our door that never gets unpacked. 

There are a few things that never ever leave my beach bag. Those things are sunscreen, a good book, a towel, and my Evian spray. I can't go to the beach without those things. (In my hand is usually a Tervis or a Coozie holding my cold drink.)

Isola Beach Bag: I love my Isola beach bag that I scooped up last summer. This is the best beach bag out there. It's sturdy and adorable all at once. It's lined to protect everything inside and with my initials on it, no one can mistake it as their own. The only meh thing is that it doesn't have pockets, but that's ok. We're still friends. Grab a couple of plastic zip bags and you'll be just fine. 

Sunscreen: I love everything that is Rodan+Fields. From their skincare line to the business to their sunless tanner to their sunscreen. They have thought of everything and I appreciate it. I use their sunscreens for my face. In fact, I have one of their sunscreens in everyone of my bags. They are perfect size for carrying around and living on an island, someone always needs some. Even just to reapply to your neck, chest, and hands when you are out and about. Don't leave the house with out an SPF of at least 20 on!

Evian Spray: While it's hot and humid here most of the time, the air is salty. Your skin can get dried out with the salt and massive amounts of sunscreen. Giving myself a little spritz here and there feels amazing. It's great to keep a bottle in my bag to wipe of my hands and set my makeup too. It bring a little fresh color to your face. When Im off the beach, I use my spray on my beauty blender to add a dewy finish. It gives just enough moisture to blend everything in. I just love this stuff. Oh and guess what?! Evian loves FromCtoC! SOOOO There's a giveaway at the bottom of the post! (#ILoveGivingMyReadersFunThings!!) Make sure to follow Evian on Facebook to find out about fun tips!

Towel: When it comes to towels, I love a good beach sheet. My favorites are usually from Target and Sam's Club. Not Gonna Lie about that. Im sure people love sure pricey towels, but a towel should hold up and dry you off. That's it's purpose. When it does those two things, but can also double as a sweet blanket to lay on your a quick blanket to keep you warm, it's winner winner chicken dinner in my book. This Beach Blanket for Two looks kind of amazing. 

A Good Book: I am just starting this DVF autobiography, The Woman I Wanted To Be, and I love it. There's so much I didn't know about her, like how we share a birthday! Yup, DVF is a New years Eve baby just like me. That made me sit up and read another chapter last night. I'm huge into reading about other women's lives. Theres nothing like a personal journey to me. I definitely recommend Wild as well. I just finished that. (Warning: If you are close to your mom, prepare for a few tears.) 

And of course because you are so awesome, I've gotten you a giveaway!
