I am so glad that Todd and I live in an apartment that has a pool! I honestly don't know how I would survive in Arizona if I didn't have a pool to relieve myself from the heat.
I am the kind of person that needs everything with her wherever she goes. When big handbags became a woman's wardrobe staple totally saved my life! I have so many handbags, but never got around to buying a large beach bag for the pool that could carry everything I needed. I was so thrilled that when Wink sent me some products that they included this darling bag that I could fit EVERYTHING in!
True Story: Before I got this bag Todd and I would use my large Lululemon retail bags to carry our pool stuff. Todd carrying the Lululemon retail bag is the closest I've gotten him to Lulu.
Lets dive into whats in my bag.....
Up until I hit my 20s I did not use sunscreen at all. I am of hispanic origin so I tan pretty well, and hardly ever burn. Back in high school my friends and I were all addicted to tanning, and it was a competition who get the most tan (Cal you always won!). I honestly wish I could go back, and undo what was done. I don't have any skin problems today, but as I have gotten older I value protecting my skin. When Todd and I moved to Arizona I became even more OCD about protecting my skin. We just moved to a sunny state, and the last thing I want is to have my skin looking like a brown paper bag. No thank you!
My skin on my face is pretty sensitive, and I easily breakout. I really like using this Neutrogena clear face sunscreen because it gives me the protection I need without clogging my pores.
Whenever I go to the pool with makeup on I will use my favorite face wipes from Ole Henricksen to wipe my makeup off before I apply sunscreen. When it's time to leave the pool I will usually use another wipe to remove my sunscreen because I don't love the feel of sunscreen on my face. These wipes are honestly amazing, and have been using them for years. They are gentle on the skin, but still have powerful cleansing component to them. Highly recommend. I use them every night before I go to bed.
You've seen me wear these Quay Australia sunnies countless times in pics, but I'm just obsessed. They are at a killer price, and super cute! Who can lounge by the pool without cute sunnies? This girl certainly can't.....
Going along with protecting my skin, I always wear a hat or put a towel over my face when I lay out. Protect your skin kids....
I love love love to catch up on my celebrity gossip with a good magazine when I'm laying poolside.
Swimsuit, Sandals, and Coverup
What's a day of swimming without a swimsuit? I love love this one I got from Strange Bikinis. I 100% of the time wear bikinis to the pool. I've tried doing one pieces, but my torso is just too long. These Sam Edelman sandals are my go to for summer. Since they are nude they go with anything!
I love love love this s'well water bottle. I am always thirsty when I'm laying out, and hate when my water turns luke warm. I need cold crisp water ! This s'well water bottle is killer for the summer heat because it keeps your liquid cold for 24 hours. Yep you need it!
Umm hello....how cute is this beach mat towel. Nuff said ;) I think I was most excited about this towel mat that Wink sent me because the saying is so playful and fun. Wink seriously has the most playful pieces for summer!
