Poolside Essentials –

I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday! I am sure for most of us the long weekend was spent in the sun so today I thought I’d share my must have poolside essentials. By now we all know how bad the sun is for our precious skin. Yes, we all love the way we look with a tan, I love looking like a bronzed goddess! But that is what spray tans are for. We all have one body to take care of for life so let’s give it the respect it deserves and wear sunscreen. Please and remember to apply it before you even leave the house. Keep reading for my favorite and my other poolside essentials.

Poolside Essentials HAWAIIAN TROPIC SILK HYDRATING WEIGHTLESS SPF 30 Besides a stack of my favorite magazines my absolute number one poolside essential is my favorite sunscreen. This one is a must have when I plan to spend any amount of time outdoors and it’s the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Sunscreen in SPF 30. It is also available in SPF 15 and they have one that’s made especially for your face. I personally recommend the higher SPF though both provide up to 12 hours of silky-soft moisture and are broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreens. Plus that smell! So amazing! One sniff and you are transported to your favorite beach. It is very lightweight and blended with exotic island botanicals, silk protein and shea butter. Just do not forget to reapply every two hours regardless of which SPF level you are wearing!IMG_0983 IMG_1003 Also in my beach bag is a pair of super cute shades to shield my eyes and a sunhat for extra protection. I usually arrive wearing a swimsuit coverup like this kaftan which I am completely obsessed with. Also a pair of cute sandals take me to the pool and I love the chain detail on this pair. Once I feel toasty and confident enough, the cover up comes off and I apply an extra layer of sunscreen. Now it’s time to unwind and relax which I do after applying a moisturizing lip balm like this one. I also love this as well for a hint of color. Whether you are chilling by the pool, laying out at the beach, swimming or playing beach volleyball, absolutely do not forget to stay hydrated! You will always find a water bottle among my poolside essentials and right now I am obsessed with the stainless steel variety. I am astounded by how long your water actually stays cold, the ice won’t melt for hours! Chandler thinks it’s weird how excited I get about these after recently trying one for the first time but what do you know? He has practically stolen it from me. Mine was purchased (with Chandler’s discount of course) at Belk and it’s by Crown & Ivy.

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Lastly I packed the new Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer. This product is so soothing after sitting in the sun and again, that scent! It’s just wonderful! Island mango, delicious! It also has shea butter, mango extract and light reflecting pigments. After applying to my skin it felt so soft and looked so beautiful and radiant. I am obsessed and you will be too. I seriously recommend you try these two products and I promise they will become your new poolside essentials!

  • #fashionisinthehair, Hell yeah it is! #AlexandredeParisgiftedme this gorgeous Excessive #Tropics hair clip. I love a good hair accessory and who knew that these would come back around? Well I guess @alexandredeparis_official did! This hair clip is definitely worth the price because 1. I'll be wearing this all summer long and 2. It's handmade in France! | This brand was started by the same man that "had the delightful idea of scattering diamonds onto Jackie Kennedy's chignon at the Official State dinner in Versailles in 1961". He has done the hair of royals, politicians and the stars of the world. If only I could go back to the 60's, I would line up to have this legend do my hair. Remind me to never cut my hair again!

I especially love wearing it with my #veloextensions from @tony_odisho. I am so used to clip-in's but these are a mix of one halo layer with a second layer of clip-in hair. What gave me trouble was the wire, it was way too long and for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to fix it! It's still not 100%, so YouTube will be my friend today. I am wearing them here and the colour is a perfect match, #8 in case you were interested 😉 Shop my daily looks by following me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app.
