Beach Essentials

How is it already August?! I feel like just yesterday we were complaining about the cold and now here we are almost at the end of summer. It’s crazy how quickly time flies by when you try to enjoy it most. In celebration of my recent beach trips, I’m sharing two of my favorite beach essentials today!

Every year Peter’s family rents out a beach house for two weeks in LBI New Jersey and over the years it has become one of my favorite places. Every year there are certain unspoken “traditions” that occur down the beach and it’s what make it so specials. From eating take out from Pinky’s the first night to very very serious games of mini-golf at Flamingo golf course, it’s all become something I look forward to each and every summer.

One of my favorite things this summer that is so handy at the beach is my new FitBit Iconic Watch from Verizon. At the beach, Peter and I tend to bike a lot and not only does my FitBit track how far and long I bike but it also tracks calories burned. It’s been my favorite new item for summer.

Another summer essential of mine, is this JBL bluetooth speaker also from Verizon. When you’re hanging at the beach sometimes it can make all the difference to just pop some tunes on! Humming along to the Beach Boys while laying ocean side is honestly one of the best feelings in the world.

What are your favorite beach essentials? Let me know in the comments below or on my latest Instagram post!
