Our Beach Bag Essentials with U by Kotex®

Since summer is here it’s time to cool off by going to the beach or pool! Naturally you’ll need some essentials to take with you on the trip, and we know just the ones to help your beach trip turn out to be the best ever!

Our Beach Bag Essentials with U by Kotex®

1.) U by Kotex®! –  Sometimes you get lucky enough to have your time of the month, when you happen to have a big vacation planned, trips to the beach, trips to the pool etc. Instead of being bummed about, you can be confident instead. Kotex U has really helped us this summer to be able to really do whatever we want, regardless of our time of the month. Lets face it ladies, our period is a thing that will happen almost our whole lives. We can’t let that dictate what we can and can’t do, or let it keep us from having fun and making memories. Plus U by Kotex® really gets that we love colorful packaging, that doesn’t make all that period stuff boring. That’s why we love U by Kotex®, and how comfortable they are, and how confident they make us feel.

They have some awesome deals on U by Kotex® going on at CVS right now. We picked all of ours up on the Buy One Get One 50% off sale! What a sweet deal! Even when they’re not on sale, CVS is a great place to pick them up, as well as many of our other essentials. We also learned through The Period Project that pads and tampons were some of the most needed items in homeless shelters. So even if you’re all stocked up on your period supplies, you can always think about donating some. We picked up the U by Kotex® Click® Tampons (which are Sara’s personal favorite!), U by Kotex® Barely There Liners (which are so flexible and comfy), and U by Kotex® Cleanwear® Pads (which have a cool 3D Capture Core with Xpress DRI to make sure you are leak free!).

 2.) A Beach Towel! – A colorful towel is way more fun to take than a regular bath towel. I think you can’t go wrong with having some colorful stripes like this one. It’ll go with everything! 

3.) Water Bottle! –  A water bottle is also really important to take with you so you stay hydrated and cool I prefer to take a big colorful bottle with me so it’ll last all day.

4.) Phone/Phone Case! – Of course you can’t forget your phone when you go to the beach! We love getting new phone cases for ours too. That way your phone can look summery too!

5.) Wide Tooth Comb – We love using this comb at the beach because when our hair gets wet and frizzy, this takes care of it right away, and keep our hair looking fabulous.

6.) Magazines/Beach Reads – Magazines can be so nice to take, When you’re just relaxing on the beach it’s the perfect time to catch up on your reads! 

7.) Sunscreen! Sunscreen of course is the most important essential. I personally think it’s better to have a good sunscreen with 50 or up SPF. Just don’t forget to reapply it so you don’t turn into a lobster. Lol

8.) Sandals! – Sandals are always a must when you go to the pool or beach. Nobody wants to be in big clunky shoes. I like to have prettier sandals so i still feel a little dressed up too, Of course they’re sparkly. Lol.  

9.) A notebook! –  It always seems like when I’m relaxing I’ll still brainstorm up a bunch of ideas for the blog or other project i want to do. I always take a notebook or small book with me so i can jot down all my ideas. 

10.) Beach Bag! A beach bag, of course makes it easier to carry everything around with you. I think it’s good to use one that isn’t too expensive and can be washed. That way if it gets wet or ruined it’s easily fixable.
