Beauty and the Beach

On Sunday, I’ll be beach bound with the boyfriend and I CAN’T WAIT. One thing is for sure—this has been the longest week ever. Between my full-time job, this blog, Glitter Guide and a couple other projects in the works, I absolutely needed a vacation (and in a perfect world, a vacation within a vacation).

Beauty and the beach

Our first stop will be at the Chesapeake Bay Resort (look out for a post on that when I return!) before we head to a condo we rented in Ocean City for the rest of the week. While I’m away, check out my special guest series next week featuring some of my favorite bloggers, dishing their best beauty tips n’ tricks (think curly hair product recs, the best self-tanners and more)! In the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram and Twitter for all my real time updates : )

Until then, I’ll be busy packing and prioritizing my beauty beach list. So far, I’ve narrowed down my essentials below. Am I forgetting anything?

Here’s what’s on my list:
Bumble and bumble The Surf Set
Lots of sunscreen (think L’Oreal Sublime Sun, Skinceuticals and Neutrogena)
Maybelline Waterproof Mascara
Alchimie Forever Gentle Refining Scrub
Stila After Glow Lip Colors (nighttime necessity for Seacrets!)
A slew of Victoria’s Secret beach products (After Sun Tan-Enhancing Lotion, Instant Bronzing Shimmer Dry Oil and their Broad Spectrum SPF 24 Body Lotion)
Bobbi Brown Beach Perfume
