Enjoy a relaxing day at the beach or the pool with these 8 must haves for the perfect summer day.

This is the first summer in a few years that I’m not jam packed with travel plans, and it’s been so refreshing. On the weekends, I’ve been enjoying lazy mornings and going wherever the day takes me. Lately, the day has been taking me for a run and then to get iced coffee and relax by the pool. It’s perfect.
So on this fine Fit & Fashionable Friday, I thought I’d share all the things you need to enjoy the perfect summer day, too. Grab your gear and come join me by the pool!
1. Sun protection
Sun burns and damaged skin are no fun, so you’ll usually find me slathered in SPF 50. I also like to give my face a little extra protection with sunglasses and/or a sporty cap. I love the summery vibes this one has.
2. Low Maintenance Hair
Heat and humidity are no friends to my hair. I usually just throw my hair up in a pony or whip up a braid, but I’m excited to give the Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray from the latest POPSUGAR Must Have Box a try. It’s supposed to help nourish your locks and give you simple, beachy waves.
Is any day complete with out snacks? Answer: NO! Having a portable snack at the ready when hunger strikes will help keep hanger at bay so you can continue on with your perfect day.
4. A Pretty Manicure
I don’t know what it is about my nails, but when I look down and see that they’re chipped or peeling, it just bugs me. I like to have a nice bold color that shines in the sun, not a messed up mani that puts a damper on my mood. A cuticle oil, like the one pictured above (which also smells like honeysuckle!), will help keep your nails from getting dried out from sand and chlorine.
5. A Good Read
Laying out in the sun isn’t complete without a good book. Give me an page turner and I could get lost for hours while enjoying the sun’s rays, so I was pumped when The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo wound up in my POPSUGAR Must Have Box. Weekend plans made.
6. Fun Drinkware
A drink tastes better when it’s in a cute glass or when you have a cute straw to drink it with, right? RIGHT! Give me a cute party straw and whatever I’m drinking goes from delicious to DE-LISH!
7. An Iced Beverage
Because the best way to cool off is with something tasty, and preferably caffeinated.
8. A Bag For All The Things
Naturally, you’ll need a bag to stash all your perfect summer day essentials. This Aloha splash-proof zip pouch allows you to protect all your snacks, hair spray, hats and more from the water. Did someone say “cannonball?”
Luckily, POPSUGAR made getting all my perfect summer day essentials a breeze with their June Must Have Box, a monthly subscription box filled with awesome goodies, such as the ones you see in this post. Interested in giving the box a try? Get $5 OFF your first box when you use SHOP5 at checkout!
