What's In My Beach / Pool Bag

Summer feels a bit more real once I venture to the beach for the first time of the season. This past weekend was my first real weekend at the beach and I can now officially adopt a summer beach bum kind of attitude! As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I am nannying for a family this summer and so far we have taken lots of trips to the pool which continuously gives me the perfect excuse to keep my beach / pool bag packed to grab at a moments notice (that's not too bad for a summer job if you ask me)! 

I put together the photo below almost as a wish list of what I would want my beach bag to actually look like if it were to have its contents spilled and I just couldn't help but put together products in such a fun and aesthetically pleasing color combination (not to mention it matches the blog). Although my actual bag and some of the products may look a bit different the general idea remains the same and will sure to have you beach and pool ready in no time! One very important product that I forgot to include in both the photo and the video is a pair of headphones. Not so practical while I am babysitting but if I am spending the day at the beach with friends it can be really helpful to throw in a pair of headphones or a portable speaker so that I can play beachy music to show even more of my excitement from being by the water! 

Watch me ramble about the contents of my beach bag in this video!
