The ocean breeze, the soft sand under your feet and the salty waves hitting the shore. The beach is such a beautiful place to be. I can’t say how lucky I feel to have such a gorgeous beach so close, and it’s sinful how little I go there. I have made it one of my 2017 intentions to take advantage of my stunning surroundings. So, with many plans of Beach days on the horizon, I thought it would be a good idea to put together an essentials list and naturally share it with all of you. I have a knack for forgetting important things like water, a towel and once a bikini but I’ve tried to block that memory out. Here’s hoping this list keeps us forgetful ones out of trouble. Whether you’re basking in the summer sun now (as we are in Australia), dreaming of warmer days or waiting eagerly for a holiday, this list will lend a little helping hand in the planning process and prepare you niceand early for all the beach days to come.
