Friend Friday: Beach Chic

Katy over at ModlyChic had the good fortune of spending some time at the beach this week. (Lucky.) It prompted her to theme this week's Friend Friday questions about what fashion and beauty bloggers take with them to the beach, how often do they apply sunscreen, etc.

1. You're headed to the beach/pool, what's in your bag?
Water.  Lots of water.  Snacks, sunscreen, probably wine or beer of some sort, a book and/or magazine and some chocolate. Always chocolate.

2. Be honest... how do you feel about sunscreen? How often do you put it on?
If I were going to beach, I would put it on as soon as we got there (or before we left the house) and then halfway through the day again. be really honest...when we go to theme parks, I always, always slather sunscreen on my baby girl but none on myself.  I don't know why.

3. Do you have any sunburn remedies?
I used to burn and peel all the time, but then about 10 years ago or so, I started to use body lotion every single day after my shower.  Since starting that habit, I've never peeled again after getting a sunburn.  My skin always stays moisturized so that it never gets dry enough to peel.  

4. Do you use sunless tanning products? Which do you use, why is it your favorite?
Nope.  I'm a mom. I don't have time to mess with that. I wish I did because I have some of the whitest skin of any Italian girl in the world. If anyone has some suggestions for a sunless tanner that doesn't stain your clothes and you don't have to wait for it to dry, let me know!

5. The best part about the beach is... 
The warmth and the soothing sound of the crashing waves...


  1. I couldn't agree more with your "best part about the beach" answer. Very beautifully said.

  2. Chocolate? That's one I haven't heard before. How do you keep it from melting? Do you take a cooler?

  3. Piper: I'm not a huge fan of water in general, but the sound of the waves is just so calming to me.

    V: For chocolate to melt, it would have to go uneaten. I don't waste time with chocolate. :) Although yes, I usually do bring a cooler too!

  4. yeah I love your answer to question 5... the sound of the waves is very relaxing and they are fun to play in too
