Beachin’ on a budget

If you’re like me, you follow a Kardashian on every social media platform. This means, you’re ready to hop in your private jet, in your Louis Vuitton bikini, and Island hop on your Yacht. But if you really are like me, you’re also still looking for quarters to go buy some Taco Bell. 


But hey, just because I’m not rolling in the dough, doesn’t mean I don’t deserve a relaxing vacation too! Since I can’t fly down to Beverly Hills today – because you know, the way my bank account is set up (excuse the Kevin Hart reference) – I’m going to show you some budget friendly beach essentials you can get at your favorite local stores. 


  1. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum ($8)

This sunscreen is holy-grail! Not only does it protect your skin from harsh sun rays, but it also moisturizes your skin leaving it beautiful and glowing. P.S. – I’m also pasty and freckly so I know my sunscreens.

2. e.l.f. Cosmetics Blush ($3)

When I’m looking for a radiant glow, my go to bronzer is e.l.f. Not only because it is ONLY $3, but it also has great pigment and leaves a natural glow.

3.  Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm ($3)

You can’t go wrong when choosing Baby Lips to hydrate your lips while spending the entire day in the sun. Bonus: they come in all different fun colors to pick and choose from!

4. Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

Infused with natural Dead Sea salt and sea kelp, this texturizing spray makes for the most beautiful beach waves.

5. Fashion Aviator Sunglasses with Blue Mirror Flat Lenses ($17)

Protect your eyes and look amazing! With mirrored sunglasses being the new fashion trend, these glasses are a STEAL!

6. Women’s Pink Jelly Pouch ($10)

If you would rather opt out of toting a big beach bag with you, this jelly pouch is the prefect item to keep all your things together and also please your inner minimalist.

7 . Women’s Aqua Jelly Beach Tote ($15)

But if you, like myself, realize that a bigger bag means more food – then you will absolutely LOVE this “positive vibes” beach tote!

8. BFCO Resting Beach Face ($15)

Saving the best for last, if the BFCO Resting Beach Face crop top, that is on SALE FOR ONLY $15! Let’s be honest though, you really can’t go wrong with any of Barefoot’s beach ready tanks!
