What's in My Beach Bag

Yesterday was a beautiful Sunday here, so I decided to go to the pool! Now because Indiana is landlocked the beach is unknown to me. I have to settle with a pool, but hey beggars can't be choosers! I decided to share with all of you what I put in my beach bag (Technically I didn't go to the beach, but I like alliteration!). 

1. Magazine- I always bring some kind of reading material with me. There is nothing better than catching up on some reading while basking in the warm sun! 

2. Sunscreen- This could be the most important thing in my bag. While I do want to get a little color, it is important to protect your skin especially with skin cancer on the rise. I recommend SPF 15 or above, but all I had was 8.

3. Ipod- This iPod looks ancient compared to the new sleek iPod touch, but I refuse to give it up. It is my best friend when I just want to relax by the pool or if I want a companion while reading a magazine. 

4. A snack- The sun drains the energy out of you, so it is important that you bring reinforcements! I try to bring a healthy snack like apples to munch on throughout the day. 

5. Water bottle- The heat makes you sweat, which means getting dehydrated is a definite possibility. I always bring a water bottle to make sure that I stay hydrated under the sun. 

6. Headband- I have pretty long hair, so I always throw a headband in my bag to keep it out of my face while I read. 

Those were just some things that occupy my beach bag. What do you have in yours? I hope you have a  chance to put your beach bag to use sometime soon! Have a sunny day :)
