What's in my lake bag


This weekend, we are at Eric's Parents' lake house in GA.  It has been so much fun to spend time with family and get some much needed sunshine.   A bit later this week, I will be dropping E off at the airport, and picking up my mom, because we are headed to market for Holiday '17 buying (can you believe it?!)

Holiday is one of my least favorite buying trips because we have to do it right in the middle of the summer.  I have to zap my mind out of light dresses & espadrilles and channel cozy snow days and glittery holiday parties, which is tough to do! But, none the less, my mom & I have so much fun going on these trips together and it really is fun to see the upcoming seasons, regardless of the weather!



I pack a little bag with me anytime we leave the house while we've been here.  Whether we are headed out on the boat or to the lake club, these are the essentials that have been coming with me.

I popped into the mall right before we left and spotted this striped pouch that I immediately fell in love with.  The pink ribbon on the zipper just gives it that perfect girly element, and the kicker? The inside leather is the same shade of girly pink! I was sold! When I got home, I realized that it was part of a set, so I snagged this cosmetic bag & this mini pouch online (they're all currently 25% off!)

We got new sunnies in at No. 14 right before I left.  This pair is one of my favorites because they're unframed & mirrored.  They also go with everything because they're black and silver.  I also got a lot of questions about this rose gold pair from this instagram a few days ago, so wanted to provide a link for them as well!

Okay.  Why am I just discovering these hair ties?! Am I really late to the game?! Girls, don't walk. RUN. These are the best hair ties because they don't kink your hair or give you a head ache.  A few days a week, I have designated 'desk days' where I tackle my emails, make new buys, & write blog posts! These days I am usually in leggings and a sweatshirt with my hair in a messy bun.  These hair ties keep it all in line.  They keep my hair up and if Eric comes home and wants to go out to dinner, I can take the hair tie out, and have good 'next day curls' rather than having to go through the washing/styling process all over again. (and no this is not sponsored, I just really love them)

   

Protecting my face is something I am adamant about.  I was on accutane in college and had to be so cautious of skin exposure because of how sensitive the drug makes your skin.  Ever since then, I have been so aware of how important it is to keep my face protected by the sun.  This make up setting spray is AMAZING.  I bought it a few weeks ago to test prior to this trip.  It has a high SPF of 50, and sets your makeup at the same time.  I honestly will be wearing this daily, not just while in the sunshine. When we head out on the boat, I have been using this SPF lip balm.  You can use it on your face as well, but I specifically use it on my lips and it definitely does the trick. Not to mention, it smells amazing.
