In June I had an awesome beach vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico at the Riu Palace Pacifico.

Here are the must have items that I think any girl or woman should pack when heading south for some sun!

1. Vichy’s Capital Soleil Sunscreen Cream SPG 60 with Mexoryl XL and other sunscreen filters. Although some darker skin beauties may believe they don’t need sunscreen, the higher levels of Melanin in brown and black skin mean we are more susceptible to hyperpigmentation from sun damage. Vichy’s SPF 60 helped me get the right amount of colour and didn’t feel greasy on my skin.

2. My awesome HUGE grey-blue sun hat that I scored for only $16.99 at Winners, get a true hollywood glam beach look with a hat like this, oversized shades and a floral one-peice bathing suit with a cutout back and roushing on the sides. Add on short frilly skirt for when you are out of the water or grabbing some lunch for a complete look!

3. Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility: A great beach read is always key for the days you don’t feel like being active on the beach or in the pool. This classic girl-book by Austen was just the thing I needed on the beach since the waves in the Pacific were too intense for me to swim in the ocean!

4. Dior’s Sunset Cafe Palette 440: For obvious reasons I don’t wear makeup during the day on beach vacations, but for dinner and evenings out a warm and neutral palette complements your new tan. This 5 colour eyeshadow palette by DIOR allows you to create more playful sun kissed looks or bolder dark eyes because of the mix of gold, deep browns, and shimmery pinks.

Well those are my must haves for your next beach vacation!
