Summer Essentials_Must Haves!
Summer is upon us folks. And with this heat 🥵 ohhh boy, it's time to have your summer essentials bag ready.
It's the count down to pool/boat parties, beach lounges, river frolicking, fishing, backyard BBQ's, rum parties, you name it, it's probably going to be happening. So, which one of these shenanigans will be your most likely go to for the summer? No pressure, you don't have to pick one. You have all summer, you can do a little bit, or a lot, of everything! Just don't over do it, be safe and be prepared - there will be lots of sun involved. And if you are up for some adventure then check out our friends over @adventuresquadja.
Anyhooo, below are my top 6 favourite, basic, summer essential items that I think are needed for any summer survival. Why 6 and not 5, because 6 just sounds better😁.
My Top 6 Items:
These are a must have, no two ways about that. Invest in a good pair or two so that you'll always have them handy. Below are my 2 favorites.
2. Sun screen
This folks is a no-brainer. It's just a must have! Why you may ask? Because it protects your skin from the sun's harmful ultraviolet radiation (UVA & UVB). Make sure your sunscreen has SPF 15 or higher. You can pick these up in any of your local pharmacies or supermarkets.
3. Swim wear
Whether it be a bikini, speedo, shorts, don't matter; whatever floats your boat. Or better yet, whatever rocks your body. Just look sexy. After all, it's summer folks. Disclaimer: I did not get around to getting the summer body, but that ain't gonna stop me from rocking the sexiness in me.
4. Loose Comfortable Clothing
Folks it's hot, may get even unbearably hotter. You don't want to be walking around with your clothes sticking to you like a glue trap. You ain't a mouse, fly or some other undesirable thing. You are cute, sexy and fabulous. Represent💯. Of course, the exception to this rule is the good old jeans and short shorts...must haves. Gentlemen, you are not forgotten, but truth be told, you get away with almost anything you wear; so just do you and look good while doing it. 🙌
Now girls, this is our jam. What better way to rock that swim wear than to add some pops of color and bling...aka...jewelry. You all know a piece of jewelry can do wonders for any outfit. Same goes for that summer essential loose clothing. Check out these pieces below from @AntoinettesAccessories. Hop on over to her Instagram page for more beauties.
6. Water bottle
Did I say it was hot! Yes it is. You have to keep hydrated at all times. It's important, worse if consuming alcohol. If you are like me and don't necessarily like water, add some fruits to it, it works. Or have yourself some coconut water. I also buy cute bottles...LOL! That works too.
That's it folks, my summer essentials must haves! Oh no...one more...WIPES. Yeah, yeah, I know I said 6, but I have to add Wipes. Cause you're gonna get hot and sweaty and it helps to freshen up. Plus, when on the go and there's limited access to restrooms or pipes to wash you hands etc, this is the best way to remain hygienic.
