Spring to Summer: Beach Essentials feat. Australian Gold

Summer is just around the corner! So get prepared with this list of everything you'll need for the hot, hot season of Summer.

1. I feel like this is pretty self explanatory but, I don't think anyone wants to start off the Summer season looking like a spring chicken. So maybe a couple of days before you go to the beach, just do a few hours of at-home tanning. You could try doing this in your yard, your balcony, or even your at friends house. Just keep in mind that a little "before the beach" color isn't going to kill you. Plus your skin will look healthier than before.

2. The sun hat. Either people like them, or they hate them. I think that sun hats are great! They are perfect for the beach. These hats will provide shade and keep the sun out of your eyes. And in my opinion, they just look cute. The first hat (left) is from Forever21 price: $10.80. And last but certainly not least, we have the second hat (right). This hat is from Juicy Couture price: $78.00.

3. One of the most Important things to own for Summer. Sun screen. I don't think that anyone wants be burned this Summer (or any summer?), so be sure to buy something with SPF 30 or higher. I personally like SPF 50, just because I now that my skin won't burn if I use something with amount of SPF. Also, you might want to consider getting something water resistant.

4. Okay this trend has been going on for a long time. Neon colors for Summer! I love this trend for Summer, it makes the season even more fun. But some people don't like to be too over the top on this trend. I for one, just like to wear a bright, neon colored nail polish. This is one of my favorite colors from Essie, it just came out this year and I love it. This color is called "Action". It's the perfect Orange color for Summer.

5. The last item that I would like to talk about, is after sun care. It's super important to do this even if you didn't get burned by the sun. I love aloe, for me it works the best. Of course, there are other things you can put on your skin besides aloe. Like lotion (cocoa butter works great), ice and cold showers.

I hope that all of you found this to be helpful. I enjoy writing for you all.
