What's In My Beach Bag/Pool Essentials

I've seen all of the YouTube gurus posting videos about their "essential" pool bag needs. To be honest, I find some of these videos kind of silly. I mean, if you take 20 things to the pool, then you are taking 15 things too much. This is what I think needs to be taken to the pool:

The bag is from Bath and Body Works if anyone was wondering. It's from the Mothers Day VIP bag.
Anyways, in the bag, I have 2 magazines that I need to catch up on, a towel, flip-flops (which would probably be on my feet), and sunblock (the one shown is the Hawaiian Tropic lotion sunscreen with an SPF of 30.I also think that it would be a good idea to have a snack if you were planning to spend the day at the pool or beach, as well as some hand sanitizer, but I have some on my keys, so I wouldn't have it in my bag. You might also consider bug spray, because I know West Nile Virus is a big concern right now.

Last but not least, feminine products would be a good idea as well, if you know what I mean ladies. The little purple bag has a couple of Tampax Tampons in there just in case. The bag is super cute, and it lets me be discrete while I'm on my period. No need for the whole beach to know if my bag spills open that I have tampons in there, especially since most beach bags don't have pockets in them to hide tampons! I also put a couple of hair ties in there so that I can easily find them if I need to pull my hair back. This purple bag is just perfect for those feminine products, and it's girly too. (Alway's new line of tampons work wonders too. They are super discrete and there won't be any leaks to worry about with your bikini! If you are interested in checking out their new line, visit here and here.)

Lets be serious though: The only makeup you need is MAYBE a waterproof mascara. You don't need anything else, because it's just going to wash off in the water. :)

Let me know what you bring to the pool in the comments below!
