My Beach Necessities

Going to the beach has to be one of my favorite ways to go on vacation. There's something about the sound of the waves hitting the shore and the smell of the water that is just instantly calming.

Whenever I'm going to the beach, there are always a few essentials that I have to bring along with me. Not pictured here: sunscreen. I'm all on that sunscreen (and aloe vera). I got my moms Norwegian/German skin-tone instead of my fathers Cajun French. So, unluckily for me, I burn SO easily. Of course I have to bring my Bourbon Street hat to represent New Orleans. 

My favorite thing to bring to the beach: books & a hat. While there's nothing that I love more than a good trashy beach novel, I bought a whole lot of books that I've been wanting to read for the last few months. 

These are possibly my favorite pair of sunglasses in the entire world. They cost me $1.50 a pair, so losing them at the beach wouldn't be the end of the world. While I bring one pair of nicer sunglasses, I normally only wear them if I'm going shopping or something!

I'm halfway through Dracula and The Best American Short Stories 2011 (a book that my mom got me for Christmas), and I'm a few pages into Pride, Prejudice and Zombies! 

And of course, you've gotta bring a beach bag with you! I got this one from Walmart for $5! It's something that I can bring with me, and it's okay if it gets a little dirty and messed up! Although it's so cute I hope nothing happens to it! 

What are your favorite things to bring to the beach?
