Summer Poolside Essentials | Lifestyle

With summer vacation here, it’s time to pull out the beach mats and spend some time outdoors! Here are my beachside/poolside/outdoor essentials everyone needs this summer!


This is singlehandedly the most important thing to keep on hand when you’re outdoors in summer. A good suncream with a high SPF will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays which can cause sunburn and skin cancer.

A Sunhat and Sunglasses:
Not only will a cute sunhat and a pair of glasses look super cute, they’ll help protect you from the sun- an absolute must.

Who says you shouldn’t take pictures of everything you do this summer? Keep a camera on hand to capture all the memories you make.

Moisturising Lip Balm:

Protecting your lips from dehydration is just as important as protecting your skin. A good lip balm with an SPF is ideal.

A book or a board game:

There’s nothing quite like tanning in the sun with a good book to keep you company. Alternatively, take a board game along and share some laughs with your friends.


Staying hydrated is crucial. Make sure to drink at least 10 glasses of water a day to prevent dehydration.


Lazing in the sun has its way of making you feel hungry (I know I’m not the only one). Keeping some snacks on hand is a great idea.

That’s it! My 8 must-haves for poolside lounging this summer. Look out for the next part in the travel series for more!
