Beach Days and another thing ticked off the list!

Hello everyone!

With the gloomy, cold, wet weather back to haunt us in Ireland after two weeks of weather fit to rival Spain, I thought I would dedicate this post to the best trip to the beach I have had in years!

Last Wednesday, the hottest day of the year (so far hopefully!), myself and my two friends decided to go to the beach in Salthill. So of course, the first thing I had to do was pack a beach bag. Now, I have come to discover that I enjoy being a stereo-typical blogger, because I always was one even when I wasn't a blogger! So bear with me as I do a 'what's in my beach bag'.....

  • Bikini (or any other swimwear)
  • Shorts
  • Kimono (or something to cover up if you're going for a walk)
  • Beach towel and regular towel 
  • Sun hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Suncream (especially if you're a pasty Irish girl who burns easily...)
  • Bottle of water (I brought 3 with me!!)
  • Salt spray (to keep those mermaid waves rocking all day if you don't want to get your hair wet)
  • Portable charger (fully charged!)
  • Makeup wipes 
  • Phone (with cute beach approved case - I got mine in Penneys and of course it's mermaid themed!)
It was honestly one of the nicest days I have had so far this summer. We literally spent the whole day at the beach, which probably wasn't the smartest idea, but it was so nice and relaxing, we didn't care about a bit of sunburn. It was so packed with people, you wouldn't have even thought it was Ireland we were in! 

For those of you interested, I got my bikini bottoms from New Look, the top from Penneys, hat from Penneys and sunglasses from River Island. I also bought a kimono and shorts from Penneys.

My favourite memory from this day, however, will always be the time I jumped off Black Rock! This was on my bucket list for the year and I am so happy that I finally have it ticked off! Even though I didn't jump off the top, it was still the scariest, most thrilling thing I have done. So, special shout out to my friends Conor and Siobhán for making me do it ;) 

If only the good weather would return so we can keep having fun days out like this for the summer!

Until next time.
