Happy Friday, friends!
Well…my little family is off for the weekend to enjoy the Fourth, but before we leave, I thought I’d share SHAY’S ULTIMATE BEACH TRIP PACKING LIST which includes a printable list too 🙂 .
PLUS, I’m also sharing a tutorial video of how I braid my hair.
So much summer fun!
Okay, if you’re like me, then when you’re packing for a trip, you’re checking and double checking that you don’t forget anything. Over the years, I’ve created a list and saved it on my computer to make sure I have what I need. Now, a lot of it is obvious stuff, but seriously, I need to have the word “underwear” on my list or else I’m not going to remember to pack it! Ha! I have all of the basics plus beach specific items too.
Don’t forget, I SWEAR BY THESE…
We do not go ANYWHERE without these packing cubes! Several years ago, I did an entire post on them, but here’s a refresher…
You can take all of this and neatly and wrinkle-free get it to fit…
For our most recent trip to the beach, here is a quick widget of the things we loved and packed (you can click on each image to get more info!):
I really think you’ve seen me talk about every single item on this list before! We are big fans of packing our own Yeti tumblers for drinks, backpacks and/or bags to carry food and drinks in to the beach, we love our new beach bag and beach blanket, those goggles are huge at our house, those are both our favorite sunscreens…it’s al the stuff we love! We even ALWAYS pack that little Bose speaker, and of course, Andrew and I each bring our waterproof Kindles. Now, the hippo is too big for a suitcase, but for a road trip, take it too 🙂 .
There’s that beach bag again 🙂 !

And for those of you who love a printable list, I have that for you too HERE! This is my actual list that I print off and take…and it has all sorts of randomness on there.
That’s my ultimate beach packing list!!
Now, if you’re here for my quick and easy braid tutorial…
…it’s really so, so, so easy! I have a little video for you…
…see? As easy as that 🙂 . By the way, so many of you have asked about my top, it’s one of the new ones from Cassie’s collection! Don’t forget, use code SHAY20 for 20% off!!
Finally, my last travel suggestion for you this year just happens to be 20% off today…
…it’s my Colleen Rothschild Discovery Kit! I’ve blogged about this before, but it’s travel-sized containers of her most popular products, and it was PERFECT for packing! It would also be perfect for trying out a variety of her products before committing to the larger sizes. Right now, she is having 20% off site-wide with code FIREWORKS, so I wanted to let you know! This is not only my favorite skincare line, but my mom’s too! This is a great deal right now!
Now tell me, what’s something you ALWAY pack for the beach? I’d love to know!!! Please comment and share!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful July 4th weekend! I will see you back here on TUESDAY with a new episode of The Bestie Breakdown. In the meantime, God bless YOU and God bless the United States of America!! Happy Fourth! xx
