Beach Bag Essentials

  • Hey Loves! F & J here!Our Hawaii trip is arriving much quicker than we anticipated. Time is flying! We are super excited and we can’t wait to share our trip with you! We wanted to share some of the prep we are doing to make our trip much more enjoyable! We wrote up  a list of some of our favorite suncare essentials, which you can check out here! We decided it might be helpful to you guys to put together a list of what we are planning to put in our beach bags so we can have a stress free day at the beach, while having our basics covered.

    Mini Hair Brush-We love to use Wet brushes because they can tame even the wildest beach hair with minimal pain! We all know the ocean salt mixed with the breeze can leave a wild mane to tame!!

    Face and Body Sun Screen- It is important to keep our skin protected from the harsh rays of the sun and it is important to have extra in your bag so you can reapply!

    Water Proof Mascara-We strive to go as natural as we can when on a beach vacay but sometimes a girl needs some mascara! Which is why we opt for a water proof one!

    Makeup Wipes- Sometimes even water proof mascara can’t stand up to the waves of the ocean! Make sure to have some wipes handy to clean up any makeup smudges! F knows from personal experiences black eyes from make up are hard to get off with just water alone!

    Moisturizer- After being in the sun for so long it is important to moisturizer our skin! The sun takes a lot from our skin and we need to make sure we keep it hydrated.

    Tanning Lotions-Might as well take advantage of soaking up the rays while at the beach!

    Aloe- Healthy for your skin, but this stuff feels amazing to put on your skin if you suffer a burn. *Tip: Put in the fridge before you go for a cooling effect.

    Sun Glasses-We like to bring a cheap pair to the beach so we don’t have to worry if we lose them, or they break.

    Water Bottle- It’s important to stay hydrated from the inside so you can have tons of energy!

    Small Snack- We like bringing a lean protein like turkey jerky to keep us energized.

    Chapstick with an SPF- Can’t forgot to protect your kisser!

    Let us know if there is something we should add to our list so we don’t forget anything! Have fun at the beach!

    Love,

    F & J

Real Talk

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We know it has been way too long since we have last posted. We just wanted to check in and let you know what has been going on in our lives. We are not writing this as giant excuse as to why we haven’t posted, we just have been really busy. We plan to get back to posting more regularly once we get back from our trip to Hawaii which we leave for next week! Admittedly we have had set plenty of time to work on the blog but life always got in the way. Honestly sometimes it was us being too exhausted and we wouldn’t have made a blog post worthy of sharing.

We always want to put out our best work, and we always strive to put a lot of effort in what we do, so we did not want to half ass anything. We feel like that wouldn’t be fair to the you guys or even to us.

We have been under a lot of stress around planning this vacation. We know vacations are supposed to be fun and carefree. But the planning is always stressful. We are going for work which means we are having to coordinate with a third party, so we are feeling like we have no control, and we aren’t able to plan the way we would like. Of course we are extremely thankful and excited for this opportunity but we are just being honest with you guys.

We do plan on posting some stuff related to our trip and we are really excited to share that with you, but in the meantime just hang tight.

Until next time…

Love,

F & J
