BEACH WEEK! What's In Elle's Beauty Beach Bag?

So far I've posted TEN (10!!!) hair tutorials on how to get beachy waves with heat and without heat. Today I'm writing about what's in my beauty beach bag. I admit, I'm totally nosy when it comes to what's inside of bags or purses. Are you? I don't know what crazy thing I'm expecting to see, but if I see a post on it, I instantly click the link. Ok, onto my exciting bag:
First off, the bag, aka my background, is just a striped canvas bag (which I just realized looks like the pillows on my couch) from TJ MAXX. It cost a whopping $5 and it's a large bag but not huge. Also, I didn't post sunscreen or towels because they should be automatically in each and every bag! Check out other Summer Essentials here.
  1. My Panama Hat from F21...Not only is this hat cheap and versatile, it's great for traveling. It crushes easily into a bag or suitcase. You last saw this hat on my Summer Essentials post.
  2. Suave Dry Shampoo...While I'm forever on the quest for THE dry shampoo, I love Suave's because it's cheap (sensing a theme here), smells great, and eliminates sweaty hair. I don't use it on my outer roots but underneath my hair. It's great for building volume as well. 
  3. Ipod...I've been on the hunt for the best Summer Mix. Leave links/ideas in the comments for me.
  4. Opi Coral Polish....It's just so bright and punchy.
  5. ELF Essential Hypershine Gloss...It's $1 (take that, Stila) and I'm obsessed. I have just about every shade. Confession time: I also carry in my bag the ELF All-Over Stick, featured here, but it was nowhere to be found! Edit: found under the ottoman in my living room studio.
  6. Gold Aviator Sunglasses...I got mine from Old Navy for $7, as I'm a breaker/smudger/loser of sunglasses. I love them. Last seen here.
  7. Eos Lip Balm...For a tasty treat, I pop mine in the fridge for a bit before heading out. Mine was $3 and is in Summer Fruit.
  8. Solid Perfume...I made my own (check out my DIY here).
  9. Waterproof Mascara...Pictured L'Oreal Double Extend.

That's my bag...what's in yours?

  5. Love the bag and the hat... very summertime. And a lip balm is a must during summer ♥

  6. The solid perfume idea is great. Just read the tutorial and I'll give it a try. You are amazing Elle!!

  11. I love these kinds of posts :) So fun!

  12. Great beach bag necessities! Love the fedora.


  13. i always hear about EOS lip stuff and have always wanted to try it but haven't yet. i love the container it comes in, though!

  14. I'm going to try the Suave dry shampoo. I have Bumble and Bumble right now and I don't think it's worth the price.

  15. LOVE everything about your bag - the colors, the hat, the polish! Summer bags are the best and yours looks perfectly stocked.

  16. I'm adding the dry shampoo and the ELF lip gloss to my to-buy-right-now list! I've been looking for a good dry shampoo, and I'm always a sucker for a good (and cheap!) lipgloss!

  17. Obviously I have a towel and sunscreen for face and one for my body, and a spray for my back. A magasine (elle/glamour/instyle...)my phone, a hat, a notebook and pen. And makeup remover wipes. I don't actually put the makeup or polish in my bag, but apply it before. If something happens, I just remove everything and stay without..

  18. in my current bag i have tampons, old chocolate, crumbs, and lip gloss.

    you know. the usual.

  19. I love bag posts. I always have Australian Gold sunblock. I love the smell, more than any other brand.
