summer beach essentials

Whether I’m headed to a local beach here in Los Angeles County, or preparing for an exotic vacation somewhere far away, my summer beach essentials help me to have the perfect day.

A few weeks ago my parents invited me to go with them on a trip to Mexico. We would be staying in Puerto Vallarta for 9 days at an all inclusive resort.

Sunglasses, pens, candy, crumpled up receipts, a notebook, and credit cards. You name it, I had it in there. These were things I didn’t need when I was out at dinner, or at a bar, or club for a few drinks. One day I saw a cute (but very small) studded clutch and decided to purchase it. From that day forward I made the decision to let go of the excess baggage so to speak, and only bring with me what IRead More →
