So with Summer right around the corner here in South Africa, I decided to do a post about “My Beach Must Haves”. As you can tell by the collage above blue and yellow are this year’s season colours for me personally. I love the combo, the blue reminds me of the sky and the water and the yellow reminds me of the sand and sun. What are your beach essentials this Summer? Let me know.

1. Seafolly Bella Rose set, bottoms AUD$69.95, top AUD$99.95 from Seafolly. How cute is this bikini?! I love the material, if you not a fan of the high waisted bikini bottoms they sell cute little bikini briefs too. Available online or try ask the South African store for stock.

2. The Fault in our Stars by John Green, R180 from Exclusive Books . I recently finished reading Looking for Alaska by John Green. It was a beautifully written book filled with amazing quotes and lessons. I was advised by many to read Green’s The Fault in our Stars next so that is way it has made it’s way into my “beach must haves”.

3.) Vichy sun and milk lotion factor 30, R290 from Clicks. This is the best sun lotion I have ever used! I can spend hours in the sun and not burn with this lotion. It also smells amazing, like milk and honey. Not only that, it also applies well, no sticky residue or feeling left on the skin.

4.) Beach bag, £90 from Lacoste. I have not been able to find this bag in South Africa yet, but it is available for online purchase from the online Lacoste store.

5.) Country Road beach towel, R299 from Country Road Woolworths. I bought this towel last Summer and my favourite thing about Country Road towels are that they are huge! You can fit two people on them easily. The little tassles at the bottom are a cute effect too.

6.) Avene Thermal hydrating mist, $11.50 from Avene. If you can not find this product here in South Africa you can find the Evian hydrating mist in most local drugstores/pharmacies.

7.) Viti Coco, R20 from Wellness Warehouse. It’s important to stay hydrated when out and about in the Summer sun.

8.) Umbrella, I have no idea where this umbrella comes from or how much it would cost. I just stumbled upon it online. I wish I knew where it came from as it matches my towel perfectly.

9.) Rayban sunglasses, R2990 from Sunglasses Hut. These sunnies are my ultimate Summer must-haves!

  1. Dear Emma

    I noticed that you had mentioned Avène Thermal Spring Water in a past blog post and just wanted to find out if I can send you some more information about the brand and perhaps some products to try? We have now launched into South Africa for the first time last month exclusively through Clicks pharmacies and would love to send you a press pack.

    Please would you send me all of your details and I can then send this off to you.

    Thank you
    Meagan Whitehorn
