By  |  0 Comments

There’s nothing better than a day at the beach and today I’ve teamed up with Banana Boat to make this summer your best ever. But before you hit the sand check out these cool new beach bag essentials that will help you stay comfy, relaxed, and, of course, chic while you’re having fun in the sun.

So scroll down for cutest finds worthy of your weekend, and be sure to share this story with your sun-loving friends and don’t stop scrolling until you get to the bottom of the page because we’ve got a super cool Banana Boat giveaway up for grabs too.


A5 Memo Bottle
The Memo Bottle is my favourite eco friendly plastic water bottle designed to fit where other bottles don’t. You can slip these little guys down the side of your beach bag so you stay hydrated while you’re having fun in the sun.
Waterproof iPhone Case
You don’t need a fancy underwater camera to take cool shots at the beach. Instead, place your iPhone in a specially designed Watershot cover. This baby is super sturdy and turns your iPhone into a professional underwater camera so you can get selfies while you swim.

Sony Waterproof Speaker
Keep the fun in the sun going all day long with this super cute splash-resistant Bluetooth speaker. The 10-hour battery life will keep the tunes pumping all day long and it’s as light as a feather, so it won’t weigh you down.

LuMee Beach iPhone Case
When the sun is setting and your swim time is done, swap out your waterproof phone case for this limited-edition LuMee beach case. The cases, originally made famous by Kim Kardashian, include special lighting on both the left and right sides for Instagram-worthy sunset selfies.

Ultraviolet – UV Index App
Keep things simple with this cool UV tracker app that shows you the current UV index in your area using a large, brightly coloured circle. Blues and greens mean you’re in the clear while reds and purples mean it’s time to find some shade. This app will also remind you when it’s time to put on a hat, apply sunscreen or avoid going outside altogether – genius! 

Cooper Cases
These fab neon, clear Cooper Cases protect your tablet, phone and other gadgets from water and sand, but their real selling point is that they’re touchscreen-accessible too. Pretty cool right?

Banana Boat’s new SPF 50 DryBalance Sunscreen
Banana Boat’s new SPF50+ Dry Balance lotion and spray sunscreen won’t leave your skin feeling sticky (nothing worse at the beach right?). The new formulation leaves your skin with a soft matte look and feel instead (hurray!) and has a really fresh, natural scent. Remember to apply your sunscreen 20 minutes before you go outside and reapply every two hours you are out there. Plus don’t skimp on the sunscreen. You need seven teaspoons to cover your whole body – yes seven!  So cover up, seek shade and stay out of the hottest part of the day and stay safe and have fun at the beach this summer.
