Beach Essentials I The Hamptons

Thank you to Nestlé Splash for partnering on this post. All opinions are my own.

This summer has been good to me. I’ve not traveled too much, but have made the most of the hot days with a variety of beach visits this season. I was able to get to Nantucket for a few days and the other weekend I went down to the shore to Long Beach Island.

For my recent adventure to The Hamptons, we knew we wanted the majority of our day to be spent at the beach. Believe me when I say we lucked out and had the most beautiful weather! A breeze, not too hot and the most enjoyable ocean-side time I’ve had in recent memory. Going into the water felt like a little slice of heaven on earth.

Keeping up with my second installment of my exploring my city this summer (see part one here) with NESTLÉ® SPLASH, today I’m sharing my beach essentials on-hand for my recent Hamptons trip.

Beach Essentials I wit & whimsy

SPF: This is my #1. I wish I would have been better about sunscreen application when I was a teenager but alas, better learn now than never. I really love the Clarins sunscreen for both face and body.

Sunglasses: Never not. This pair is currently my favorite.

Sunhat: I later my face with the aforementioned SPF but also always don a sun hat when at the beach. I get so many freckles and my skin can be so sensitive so it’s better to be safe than sorry. I also always seem to get burnt on my scalp and that is zero fun so a hat solves all.

H20: No need to get dehydrated while sitting and soaking up the rays! NESTLÉ® SPLASH comes in five flavors including wild berry, lemon, strawberry melon, acai grape and mandarin orange so you can stay hydrated with a touch of sweetness. Their mantra is that hydration should be fun, flavorful, and a little bit unexpected so this summer they are encouraging all of us to embrace that sentiment. I brought a variety of the flavors out to the beach for myself and my girlfriends to sip on under the sun. NESTLÉ® SPLASH has zero calories and zero sugar and comes in convenient six packs you can pick up nationwide.

Camera: Never not one to be snapping, these Instax cameras are so fun to bring along to capture mini-moments.

Bandana: I like to have a bandana to lay across my chest (one too many bad burns there) if I feel like I’m getting too much sun or to hold my hair back.
