Beach Essentials: $10 and under

BB8315-1

Products above from Target.com

August is here, which means we only have a month left to enjoy the beach before summer is officially over (sobs). I don’t know about you, but I am not ready for summer to be over. There’s nothing I love more than warm weather, so it’s sad to know it’s almost over.

Be sure to enjoy the last few weeks of summer by taking more trips to the beach and spending time with your friends. Here are my top eight essentials for a day at the beach all under $10:

Beach Bag ($9.99):

Obviously, because you need something to carry your stuff to the beach.

Beach Towel ($9.99):

Unless you enjoy getting sand all over your body, a towel is your BFF for the beach.

Sunscreen ($4.99):

Because no one wants skin cancer, so take your skin safety seriously with sunscreen.

Bronzer ($4.99):

Get a sun-kissed glow without damaging your skin with this Maybelline bronzer.

Sea Salt Spray ($4.99):

This spray adds incredible texture for natural beach waves. Trust me, your hair will thank you.

Deodorant ($4.99):

Beat sweat and the heat with Dove deodorant. Plus, it’s the best smelling deodorant ever.

Snacks ($5.99):

Snacks are always an essential. Make sure to pack a variety for you and your friends.

Lip Moisturizer ($2.99):

EOS will always be my go-to product. Your lips will stay hydrated and protected all day

A Typical Day in my Life

BB73115

I’ve been seeing some bloggers share “A typical day in my life” posts and I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. Personally, I think it’s interesting to see how people plan out their day, or what they do on a day-to-day basis.

So, I’ve compiled a typical day in my life that includes work, school work, working out and blogging as the main focus because those four things take up most of my day. I’ve recently changed jobs, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Sometimes, you need to know when it’s time for a change. For the most part, this job change has been positive for me.

As far as working out, I’ve been trying different workouts such as Pilates, Yoga, and a combination of cardio and strength-training. I’m always curious to know what type of workouts other bloggers love, so if you have been loving a new workout, let me know in the comments!

Now, I’m curious to know what a typical day looks like for you. Leave a comment below telling me what a typical day looks like for you!
