What’s in my beach bag?

Summer is officially here and that means beach time/pool time/river time, you name the body of water and I’m in it! 

In the last three weeks alone I’ve been to my parents pool, floated in a tube at GunpowderFalls State Park, and visited the Eastern Shore beaches. The only not so fun park of my water adventures is trying to pack a water proof bag with all of the things I might need while out splashing around. This summer I think I’ve got it down to a science though! 

Want a sneak peek at what’s inside my water bag?

I love my portable speaker (this is similar but I can’t find mine)! It was super cheap so I don’t worry about losing it but it still produces a high volume of sound that works well at the pool. 


Sun Bum Sunblock– I have naturally fair skin, but once I get a good base color I tan easily. This summer I’ve been using a few different sunblocks but my favorite is Sunbum. It’s not super heavy, rubs in easily and smells amazing! I have the after sun cooling gel as well as the chapstick and can’t get enough of it’s scent!

Portable charger– My phone dies so fast especially when I’m snapping the fun things I’m doing so a portable battery charger is crucial. I love this one because it clicks onto the bottom of my phone and is easy to toss back into my bag when it’s done charging! 


The most important thing in my bag on a gorgeous day spent outdoors is my sunglasses  and I can’t stop wearing my new Fed Thrill sunnies! Fed Thrill is a local sunglass company that carries a wide variety of styles and colors. There truly is something for everyone! I have the new style for Summer 2016 (Porters) in matte black and love how lightweight they are. The polarized lenses are perfect for a day on the water! 

Matt, owner of Fed Thrill Sunglasses, is kind enough to give away one pair to two lucky SOTD readers! Visit my new Soup of the Day Instagram account HERE and follow the instructions to enter the giveaway!

    I need a charger like that! I have a few that you need a cord for, but they take up a lot of space. You know I love some Fed Thrill, what a great giveaway!

      That’s 100% why I’m obsessed with that charger- I don’t have to carry around anything else and I can still fit it in my pocket while its charging (just upside down) 😉

      YES! I love it for music on the beach. Its loud enough to hear but not loud enough to bother people around me

    I need a portable speaker! I always have my ipad or a book so I can read :)

      Its truly the greatest little speaker. My friends and I love listening to music while we are on the beach and our phones just aren’t loud enough!
