Here Comes the Sun

The pools are opening in 5 days, time to make sure our pool bag is well stocked.  Year after year I have my tried and true staples that I never leave home without.
First up, my bag.  I got this as a free gift with a makeover at MAC Cosmetics and it is a great bag.  The canvas is nice and thick, the handles are nautical rope, and the bag itself is wide and deep, perfect for storing lots of goodies.

Speaking of goodies in my bag...
EOS lip balm
this stuff is the best, everyone will agree

Olay Complete
I have mentioned this many times in the past, but this is hands down the best sunscreen for your face.  It has SPF 30 and zinc oxide, which are so important to protect your face from sun damage and wrinkles.  Surprisingly many sunblocks have SPF but no zinc oxide

Sun Bum
I discovered this sunscreen a couple months back while in Florida.  Love it and I love the smell.

La Croix Coconut Water
I think I drink about a case of this a week.  My husband think it takes like he is drinking sunscreen

Good Summer Reading
I have been on a reading kick lately, this one came highly recommended by many so I am starting it this weekend.  I actually have a post coming soon about all the books I recommend.

Just a good, standard flip flop.  Of course I recently saw how they spiced them up a little...

How cute are these??!!


  1. I will have to try that sunscreen! Can't wait for your book list, I am looking for new ones. I have been on a reading kick too!

  2. You'll love The Paris Wife! It was great!

  3. That is such a cute freebie bag!! And I want to try that sunscreen. I have been reading a book a week. Maybe I'll do a book review tomorrow too.

    Yes - I never thought in my 20's I'd be doing a happy dance about a #2 in the toilet. :-)

  4. Love everything on here! Isnt that Esos lip balm the best? I have several of them and all the diff flavors are great. Cant wait for your reading list. I am always on the hunt for new books!

  5. We've just recently been able to start using our pool, and I'm so excited!! It's like Christmas in May! haha I've been meaning to read that book too. I'd love to hear what you think when you're done.
