In case you haven't been on Instagram lately, I were just away in Florida and as much as I love the beaches, fun and days in the sun; packing for a tropic trip in the middle of winter isn't always easy.
Want to know how I prepped for vacay out of season? Check out what's in my beach bag and shop my go-to tropic products we scooped up from Amazon...
I was OAUI excited to try this wave spray! After all the ranting and raving about it, I had to grab a bottle for myself and I can honestly tell you, it's worth every spritz. Who doesn't want natural beach waves when on vacay? They just don't always turn out that OAUI... am I right ladies? Give your hair a little help, use a few sprays of the OAUI's Wave Spray; Infused with rice protein, add hold and memory to your hair for that "just got out of the ocean" look!
If you know me at all, you know I'm so white I could probably glow in the dark. So when I'm going away (especially to Miami) prepping some colour is an essential part of vacay. I mean, no one wants to look like a tourist... am I right? Don't pull a Ross Geller! Try St. Tropez! It's perfect for when you're looking to get some natural colour fast & you can even do it from home!
Use the Tan Enhancing Polish and Moisturizer to keep your tan looking natural and maximize all results. This lightweight, easy-to-apply Self Tan Bronzing Mousse dries in as little as 60 seconds. So throw your clothes back on and wait for a rich-bronze, streak-free tan!

Shop Cult Gia's classic ARK bag! A beautifully designed heirloom purse made to live in your closet forever. It's the foundation of your day, it holds what's in your future (literally) and is the perfect bag to endure a day at the beach. This budget friendly piece is easy to clean, remains sand free (thanks to it's trusty holes) and comes in a variety of sizes for your convenience. I mean, what better beach bag could you ask for?
Looking to have fun all day in the sun? Don't ruin your trip before it's started! Put some sunscreen on before you're walking around all Krusty the Krab by day one. Not all sunscreens are created equal, try using Garnier's Ombrelle for full protection! I like mixing Ombrelle's Dry Mist Spray SPF 30 on my body and the ultra light cream SPF 30 for my face. Creating the perfect combination to shield my porcelain skin from the sun.... while getting a tan that is (or hoping too lol)
Get ready to escape the snow and go sun bound... Keep cute and comfortable with Tilley hats; the TH8 Hemp Women's Hat is perfect for the beach. With it's broad brim and water-repellant fabric, this hat is sure to provide you with the ideal amount of protection no matter what mother nature's calling for.
Time flies when you're having fun! It's easy to loose track at the beach and while it might be ideal, you might not always have that luxury. The Komono Winston watch is cute, comfortable and water resistant... and did I mention perfect for the beach? Coming in 17 different colours, combined with a genuine leather strap. Mix-and-match your watch to complete whatever beach-inspired look you have going for you.
