Primitive & Proper
Hello Painted Home readers! I am Cassie from Primitive and Proper and I am so excited to be here today on Denise’s awesome blog! Today, you get to take a peak into my summer beach bag, and the timing couldn’t be better, because I am headed there next week, not to make you jealous or anything… 😉
So let’s have a look, shall we? First of all, this summer I am so excited to use my brand new striped beach bag! Isn’t it fun and beachy?
Now that I am in my 30’s the most important thing to me is sunscreen. As a teenager and in my early 20’s I was not so careful, and I cringe at how I treated my skin. So now, I take care of it. I share the same sunblock as my kids with an SPF 50. I am not taking chances here, people! We use Banana Boat SPF 50 Sport, since we go in the water and this one is water proof.
I also like to make sure I have a towel, of course. I have an old J. Crew towel from when I used to work there years ago, but these days I would love this one from Lands End.
Another essential is a bottle of water! We love these camelbak aluminum water bottles. (I should add I don’t actually have one, but my kids each have the kids version!)
And if my kids were not going to be with me, and it was evening, I would need this on the beach. I am not too picky about brands, but I love organic malbecs the most!
And of course, while I am at the beach, I will need some reading materials. I would love to read this book I have heard much about.
I have very sensitive eyes, so I will definitely be packing my sunglasses! (self portrait)
And finally, I rarely have the chance to paint my toenails, and what better place to do it than the beach, where I will be staring at them all day! I am a huge OPI fan and I love this pale pink in the summer when my skin is slightly tanned….
Thank you so much, Denise, for having me here today to share a look inside my beach bag!
