My Beach Bag Must Haves

As most you know, I’m a total Florida girl. I grew up here and even when I lived in other fabulous cities like DC and Houston, I always stayed true to my Florida roots! And there are two things that are very important to my semi-southern roots…the beach and iced tea.

I’ve been going to the beach and enjoying iced cold glasses of iced tea as long back as I can remember. I’m lucky enough to live less than an hour away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. And while I don’t bake in the sun like I might have been tempted to in my youth, I do still enjoy a good beach day as long as I have my trusty beach bag with me filled with my must haves!

  • Sunscreen is an absolute must! Mama doesn’t want skin cancer or wrinkles!
  • Oversized sunnies are another of my beach bag go tos. They look chic and protect the delicate skin around my eyes.
  • Before having kiddos, I would have added a good book to the equation, but my lil’ dude keeps me pretty busy when we’re at the beach now. Haha! I’m guessing the lil’ lady bean that’s due any day will do the same…but I digress.
  • A lightweight coverup is good to have in case I want a little coverage.
  • A bottle of water is also a necessity. Keeping hydrated is tres important and now, thanks to Lipton, I can have a little tea when I’m sick of plain old water. Lipton Tea & Honey To Go Packets have only 5 calories per 8 oz. serving and are the perfect size to throw in my bag!

I had the pleasure of sampling Lipton Tea & Honey recently and I’ve gotta say, if you love sweet tea, this stuff is for you! It’s made from real tea leaves, real fruit flavors and it’s sweetened with honey. I seriously can’t believe there are only 5 calories in it! I mixed some up in one of my trusty tumblers and headed out for a day of errand running recently.  I’ve been in crazy nesting mode and I’ve been running around nearly every weekend buying baby goodies and things for household projects which I’ve lovingly delegated to the hubs. Haha! And being pregnant, it seems like I’m thirsty ALL the time. Lipton Tea & Honey was the perfect on the go beverage!
