A good bikini - there is really no way to explain how big a deal this is. A decent bikini makes the difference between feeling like a whale and feeling good on the beach or by the pool.
The bikini pictured is from the website Simply Beach and by the brand Vix. I mentioned this in a recent You Tube video too. The website is amazing if you are on the hunt for swimwear, they have all colours, styles, sizes, shapes imaginable. This particular one I chose is amazing quality, I can really tell the difference between it and my cheaper bikinis - the fabric feels better quality and like it will actually hold me in where I want it too.
Next on my essentials list....
Suncream and Aftersun.
I´d love to pretend I´m some sort of bronze goddess, but I´m not and I need all the help I can get to get a bit of colour. Plus I need a good level of protection to stop me from the dreaded burn. I will report back post holiday about how the products pictured held up!
Last, but by no means least - a good book (or five)
I´m guilty of not finding time for reading most of the rest of the year, but on holiday I plough through them! These are just a couple, I also have a couple of juicy crime novels and a token slightly intellectual one to get through.
What are your beach holiday essentials!?
