If you’ve been reading this blog for any significant length of time–first of all, thank you!–and also, you know that my older daughter loves the outdoors and playing in water.
She will easily spend all day playing in the pool. Now, I love the outdoors more than the average mom, and about 100x more than my husband. So I’ll gladly spend hours outside with my daughter, trying to soak up enough vitamin D to last me through the 9 months of Chicago winter. Ugh.
I like to have a beach bag handy with some essentials to refresh myself during the hours of 90 degree weather (which I secretly love). I can just grab the bag and go. What’s in this bag, you ask?
A beach towel in fun, punchy colors, a paddlebrush that can glide easily through wet tangles, some ponytail holders, an adorable sun hat for my daughter, sunglasses for me (aviators are my fave), and some deodorant to freshen up.
You know Tom’s of Maine, right? They have a line of products with natural ingredients, including toothpaste that tastes so much better than the regular stuff. I remember discovering it years ago, and loving the flavors. When I heard that they made deodorant, I snatched some up in the lavender scent. I knew it would smell fresh and natural.
|What would we do without Amazon Prime??|
Loooove lavender. Reminds me of a spa.
And the consistency of the deodorant is perfect. Just like other brands, but all natural.
I love having a designated bag to keep all my pool essentials. I like the subtle tribal print on this one. A summery pattern, but still feels neutral.
When my daughter is ready to head outside, she practically runs out the door. I wish I had that girl’s energy.
What’s in your summer activities’ bag? Dry shampoo? Wet wipes?
