How I spent my weekend / Things you need for a beach day.

Beach day

We all know how relentless working in lagos or working a 9/6 is and how hard it is to take a break or vacation. Many a times I look forward to a vacation on the beach or some place quiet and nice.

I haven’t gotten much time as I want to travel, each time an opportunity present itself, I jump at it. It was a lovely Saturday morning and I sure felt it that the day was breathing out good vibes. So I needed some place like the beach where I can have a good time. So I headed to see the waters.

Have you been to the beach.  Check out my trip and cost to Tarkway bay

One of the most difficult problem is finding the right wears without looking exposed and vain. And remember you need an outfit that will allow you move freely on the sand and water. So let’s see what you need for that simple day on the sand.

Items you need for a day on the beach:

 Dress/gown, shorts: A gown is a perfect outfit when you are just hanging around the water and not in water.

Sunglasses: Sunglasses make you look cool and protect your eye from the sun.

sun glasses


Jewelries: You can add a little glam to your outfit with a pair of tiny clear crystal heart earrings and bracelet. Just make sure you don’t go into the water with them on.

Hand bracelets


Straw hat/ Cap: Nothing more completes a look than a nicely knitted oversized hat or a simple face cap. It defines your look and makes you more glam.

Sandals/slippers/wedge: when am out on the sand I usually prefer a simple slippers or sandals. Often times I am more comfortable on a flip-flops and it makes me look quite stylish. It depends on whatever you feel comfortable on, slippers, sandals or wedge are all perfect for a nice beach outing but make sure they aren’t lathered.

Flip flop


Swim wear: This is my best beach wear. One of the reasons I love going to the beach. A perfect swim suit is basic for a simple and stylish look.

Bag: Beach outing gives me the opportunity to have fun with those big bags I have in my closet. I love small bags but nothing quite says a beach outing than an oversized bag.

Cream: Don’t forget to go with your sunscreen lotion or a cream to use after you have dried up and you’re out of the water.

Things to buy


Also, don’t forget to go with some extra cash for buying and food.  I always love taking along my food though. For me the food over there are quite expensive so I go along with snacks and dessert.

Let me know what else you take to the beach on the comment box below.

Until next time …AM LEE
