The season when we rejoice the warmth of the sun, celebrate the waves, and go on a shopping spree collecting the best summer essentials. It is the time when beach waves go higher, the hair gets lighter, skin gets tanner, and the life is so much better.
Summer brings us a well-deserved break to have lots of ice-creams, go on sudden picnics, have sun-kissed skin, adorn colorful swimsuits, put gorgeous shades on, and party hard.
Read on to the top summer essentials you have absolutely got to have!
1. Prepare for impromptu trips to the beach with a super-bright swimsuit
Summer is wasted without frequent impromptu trips to the beach. To prepare yourself for the trips, grab a super-bright, flamboyant swimsuit. Well, this one is a no-brainer because who doesn’t need a bikini in summer?
Since the swimsuit world is always bursting with new colors, designs, and styles, the selection is going to be difficult but totally worth it!
2. Tote around in style with a cool makeup bag
A bright makeup bag to carry your life-saving makeup essentials can never be removed from the list. Exile your large, dark purse to the back of the storage room until the point when winter kicks in.
For summer, you require a splendid, light bag to tote around looking as stylish as ever!
3. Escape the blues with your favorite books (or Amazon Kindle)
Just like your body needs to unwind and relax, your mind deserves that too.
In summer, you can read books that help you mentally relax as well. You can read by the beach taking a sunbath or while you lay on your bed and the sunshine peeps in through the window. Endorsing how reading helps relax your mind, Dave Barry says:
“Reading is a vacation for the mind.”
So, this summer, grab your favorite books or your trusted Amazon Kindle for e-reading and treat your mind.
4. Cam it to cherish it forever
We take pictures so that they make us feel the good old times whenever we are nostalgic. Carry a camera to capture the best moments you experience and the things you see and love because every picture tells a story.
5. Stay cool with big, gorgeous sunglasses
Summer spectacles are spectacular; they save you from the sunlight, make you believe that the weather is good, and hide all the sins that your eyes tell. Sunglasses aren’t only an accessory, they save you from getting those unwanted wrinkles near the eyes as you age.
If you haven’t bought a perfect pair of sunnies yet, it’s the right time you hop to it!
6. Set the world off – put your headphones on
Summer is the perfect time to travel and unwind and music best serves the ‘unwinding’ purpose. No matter how much and how far you intend to travel, whether it is a day-long or week-long expedition, you will love yourself for not leaving your headphones back home.
The trouble with life is that there is no background music but the good news is you can have your own!
7. Put ‘mascara’ first because it makes everything better
While mascara can win the game for you every time, you will struggle to choose one for yourself because of the unlimited choices.
To avoid under-eye smudging, go for waterproof mascara even if you have to spend a few extra bucks; after all, spending on makeup essentials is a solid investment. Isn’t it?!
8. Use travel money – it will only make you richer!
Carry and spend your travel money because without it you will not get far on your holiday.
In the words of Kasper Raunholst:
“You might be poor on money but you will be rich on life.”
9. Stay connected and up-to-date with your phone
Regardless of how much you may wish summer was for relaxation, it could be one bustling season for families. From soccer tryouts to summer excursions, it can be difficult to escape and tend to your socializing. Staying connected and this can only be possible with a phone.
Synchronizing plans, sharing summer recollections, and treating your ears to your most-loved summer tunes are some incredible things your cell phone do to make it the best summer for you.
10. Live, laugh, and see what you haven’t seen but don’t forget your sunscreen
Undoubtedly, sunscreen is your best friend during summer. While summer is the time for you to have a lot of fun, make memories, and do all that you want; make sure you don’t be reckless with yourself. Buy a nice sunscreen and put in your cool makeup bag along with the waterproof mascara so that you don’t burn yourself from the sun.
11. Insect repellants because insects are as excited for summer
If only insects sucked fat instead of blood, we wouldn’t put insect repellants in our summer essentials’ list. But because they don’t, make sure you carry insect repellents to prevent summer insects from spoiling the season for you.
Picnics and gatherings on the yard are what summer is all about but those gnawing bugs can ruin it for you in seconds. Either use natural insect repellents like peppermint or go for those in the market. Just don’t forget to carry one!
But this isn’t it! Make sure you carry period-delay pills, contraceptives, and antimalarials to keep all the problems at bay that can ruin your summer holidays. As per , these problems coming in the way of your special occasions or summer vacations can bring extreme inconvenience and frustration, so don’t forget to keep these pills with you.
Bright days, blue skies, and priceless moments await you. Get your hands on these summer essentials and have the time of your life. Happy summers!
