Sand & Sun

This summer is turning to out to be one of the best I’ve had in quite a few years (minus the unemployment, obviously). I’ve been super busy and having a lot of fun. Next week I’m heading to the itty bitty island of Fogo for my aunt and uncle’s 40th wedding anniversary. I’m really looking forward to being surrounded by family, meeting new people, and partying it up with my cousin and her friends. I’m also looking forward to heading to Fogo’s gorgeous beach. And since I don’t get much beach time, at all, I may have went a little overboard dreaming of things I would own if I lived in a place where I could visit the beach on the reg.

Therapy Thursday - Beach Bags

If there’s one thing you should know about me if we are going anywhere together, its that I like to over pack. I’m a girl who needs options. Getting ready to head to the beach is no different. I don’t want to have to use the same bag every day. What we’ll be doing when we get there, how long we’ll be there, or if we will be making other stops besides the beach, all have to be taken into consideration. If we’re going all day, I’ll need a bigger bag so that I can take a few snacks, magazines, frisbees, etc. And if we’re going to do a little shopping, I’ll want a smaller bag so I don’t have to carry around a large tote.

If I’m heading to the beach a few days in a row, I need more than one towel. Obviously its nice to switch things up. But mostly, that thing is gonna get dirty and sweaty, and the thought of using one a second day without washing it, is kinda nasty. And we all know that I’m not big on doing laundry any more often than absolutely necessary. And if they all rolled up as neat and tidy as the Roxy, that would be fantastic.

Much like towels, there are hygienic reasons why more than one suit is a definite plus for beach goers. But if we’re being honest, I’m mostly for having lots of options, cause suits are still fashion. And I like to look good. And I don’t want the beach hotties to see me in the same thing over and over. That would just suck.

What would you take to the beach?

  1. I just found your blog today and let me just say I am already in love! I am planning my Therapy Thursday for next week because I will for sure be linking up.
    And I totally agree with you about bathing suits and needing a bunch because they are still fashion. No one wants the hot lifeguards to be thinking they only own one suit!

  2. So sorry for not posting a Therapy Thursday last week. I know you had been planning to link up. I was out of town and had very limited access to internet. But I promise there will be one this week. And it would be awesome if you stopped by.
