Beach Bag Essentials

Last weekend my husband and I were in Goa for our anniversary. Even though It was a short 3 day trip we had a lot of fun. From gobbling down sea food like there is no tomorrow to chilling at the beach shacks, partying, relaxing spa sessions, dancing with a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary, it was all great. We also tried some places this time and loved them. We also saw a movie because we had some time before our flight back to Delhi. On this trip I carried with me a small cross body bag to keep my essentials. The bag is from Zara. It was the perfect size, neither too small nor too big. It fit everything nicely and also it went perfectly with all my outfits. Read on further to see what was in my bag.

One thing that you cannot go without is a sunscreen. I have been using the Loreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence sunscreen. I forgot to carry my Neutrogena Sunscreen Spray so I was using this all over.


The next thing I had were my Burberry Sunglasses because it was quite sunny during the day.

Facial Spray

I also kept my Caudalie Beauty Elixir. It is a very refreshing and hydrating facial mist.

Hand Sanitizer

I always have a santizer in my bag. This Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer in Japanese Cherry Blossom smells divine.

Hand Cream

My hands are always dry. The Body Shop Moringa Hand Cream is a light moisturizing cream and also smells very nice.

Lip Balm

I have fallen in love all over again with the Clinique Chubby Sticks. They are quite moisturizing and also give a nice wash of color to the lips. The one that I have been using almost every day is the shade 01 Curviest Caramel.


These Sephora Deodorant Wipes are so much better than carrying a deodorant in your bag.


You always need gum.

Hair Stuff

Some hair clips, rubber bands and a hairbrush. I lost my mini travel hair brush so I have a comb.

Here are a few pictures from the trip.

I would love to know what your essentials for a beach holiday are. Please leave a comment below and let me know.
