No summer would be complete without spending some time with my family at the beach. And by beach, I mean Long Beach, New York. My hometown. Not to be confused with Long Beach, California: home of Snoop Dogg (who goes by the name Snoop Lion now!?). Just 1 hour outside the bustle of New York City, and you’re transported to a full-blown beach community: flip flops, surfers, beach cruisers and all. This is my first summer back post-Hurricane Sandy devastation and it’s so wonderful to see how the community came together to help rebuild and make the island even better than it was before. If you’ve never been, and happen to be in the New York metro area, definitely take the time to check it out. If you have been, definitely keep coming!
Here are my Long Beach beach bag essentials:
1) Vanessa Bruno top handle handbag / 2) FRENDS ‘Layla’ Headphones / 3) Moleskine Hardback Notebook / 4) J.Crew Panama hat / 5) Laura Mercier lip treatment / 6) Authentic Turkish Cotton Beach Towel / 7) Elizabeth and James star glasses / 8) Loreal Sublime Sun care
