My Spring Break Essentials

Spring Break Essentials

All winter long I daydream about bright blue water and beautiful beaches. Finally, spring — and spring break — is here! After working hard, there’s nothing like some time in the sun to recharge with friends and family. Here’s everything I’m taking with me in my beach bag.

As for my beach bag itself, I like storing all my essentials in a simple L.L. Bean Tote with a navy blue bottom.

Nothing is more important than sunscreen to keep you protected and looking young. I keep a tube of SPF 50 Face Base with me at all times so I can reapply throughout the day.

Accessories can also protect you from the sun. You’ll always find me in a Rutgers hat (my husband went there) with a big red R. And I love my Dakota sunglasses — cool aviators in the perfect shape.


Lips tend to get dry in the sun, but a quick swipe of Yogi Bare Lip Balm helps make them smooth again.

I don’t like wearing lots of makeup to the beach, but I do use my Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil. It helps frame my face and keeps my brows looking full and well-groomed. It makes a big difference when your face is bare.

A good book is a must-have for vacation. Right now I’m reading A Chance in the World by Steve Pemberton and can’t put it down. I’m someone who needs good tunes at the beach, so I load up my iPhone with fun music.

After a day at the beach, I love using my new Nude Finish Illuminating Powder. Applied high on the cheeks, it enhances your sunkissed glow with subtle highlight.

For a casual look, my go-tos are black and white Adidas Slides and a white button-up shirt from J.Crew.

Last but not least, I need my Beach perfume spray. Even when I can’t get to the shore, it instantly transports me to my favorite place.
