I forgot how much I dread living in the Sahara Desert – also known as Texas. One thing I did NOT leave in Dubai: Heat!
Summer burns. Which means we’re either inside, or in water. Doing anything else is dreadful. If you’re living somewhere with scalding temperatures, you feel me.
There’s a couple essentials I keep in my pool purse that are MUSTS for days in the water.
Feeling comfortable & confident in your swimsuit every single weekend is not always the easiest – having these items packed helps feel prepared, comfortable & confident.
White, light & easy. Having a lose fitting cover for your swimsuit is perrrfect. When necessary – roll it up and throw it in your purse so it doesn’t get lost at a busy pool.
Isn’t this cool? You can roll it up super small when you’re not using it. I love bucket sacks for the pool because they can easily be thrown or hidden anywhere. Keep in mind, don’t spend a lot of money on a purse for the pool – it’s wet, dirty, possibly sandy & not the best place for you covetted accessories.
BIG SUNGLASSES ARE A MUST. Always. They cover so much of your face & there’s only positives to that. Having constant shade on your face allows you to be more tolerant to the sun all day.
Also, don’t spend a lot of money on the sunglasses you wear to a pool day. I’m the only person I know that hasn’t lost expensive sunglasses and it’s because I take cheap ones to places they’re likely to get lost or damaged – the pool.
Nothing in the world feels better than finishing your time at the pool with a refreshing face wash.
Music makes people feel good. And no one remembers to bring a speaker –> Be the hero.
I bought this for Wafiq and am soooooo jealous!! We wanted a plastic cup for pool days because glass isn’t allowed – this cup is the coolest. (Red solo cups are very college, we’re past that right?_
Fill up a large plastic cup with a drink of choice. For pool parties, bring alcohol, you’ll feel better in your bikini with a little buzz. 🙂
7. Comb & Hair Clips
To organize the strands after a dip.
If I don’t have chapstick, I’ll drive to the nearest store & get some before I go out to the pool. That dramatic.
I’ve tried every sunscreen I can imagine. Although this sport sunscreen isn’t the most organically friendly option, it’s the only thing I’ve found that protects my skin.
I spray it on and it covers evenly & lasts all day – in and out of the water. No missed spots. IF you have fair skin like me, you know this is a treasure to find. No more sunburn!
For that one zit that sticks out like a shinning dragon
Ok, what did I miss?? Any pool day essentials you can’t go without?!
