A Day At The Beach ♥


There's something really nice about spending the day on the beach,
I don't live very near either, so when it was my birthday on the 21st July - I turned 25
 But that age was just a number, I still felt like a child the whole day I was there.


Me and my fiancé and a few friends went to Formby Beach which is just an hour away from us to spend the day there and celebrate my birthday beach style.
While I was there, it really got me thinking,
Why in the summer do I not spend more time here??

Days on the beach are the perfect way to celebrate most occasions and who doesn't have fun at the beach?

  I decided to put together a list of necessities needed to have the perfect beach party and a few of my own tips for a beach party.
 It doesn't have to cost a lot, you can make your beach party as affordable as you want:



1. Pink Straw Beach Mat - £2.49 From your local Home Bargain store - I picked up one of these and it was so handy for the beach.

2. Cath Kidson Rose Provence Paper Plates - £4.00

3. Pink X-Mini Portabe Speakers - £14.99

4. Dot To Dot Cocktail Shaker - $22.95 - Perfect if you want a few cocktails on the beach.

5. Paisley Rose Cooler Bag - £2.95

6. Sweet As Pie Mason Drinking Glass - $11.95 - these are the cutest little drinking glasses with the straws, perfect for the beach because you would just knock a glass over, they have a few different types of drinking glasses on there website here.



♥ When travelling, find out who in your group drives and all make plans on sharing a car, that way you can all chip in with the fuel costs and any other fees like entry, as most places charge per car for parking up, there's no point making you way separately.

♥ If you have quite a few people coming ask everyone to bring a little something, that way no one has to spend a fortune on food and that way there will be something for everyone to eat.

♥ Always check the weather at least a week before and keep your eyes on it throughout the week, the weather changed last minute when I went, it was meant to be a sunny day but it ended up being a scattered cloudy but very warm day - I even got sunburn.

♥ Talking of sunburn - Top Tip - don't make my mistake, even if it is cloudy, wear suncream, the sun always tends to be stronger on the beach as the sand reflects a greater amount of light so you are at more risk of burning than if you were lying in your back garden or by the pool,

♥ Ask everyone to bring a towel, that way you can put all your towels together to form  huge picnic blanket, no one likes sitting on sand.

♥ Think of games and activities you can do on the day if you don't want to just be sitting around on the beach, get the guys to bring a football, they can have a bit of a kick about why us girls can relax.

♥ Ask someone to bring a iPod speaker, a party on the beach is not a party without music.

♥ Last but not least, make sure someone brings a camera, you need pictures to remember this day, and remember its the beach, you can be the biggest kid you want to be.


Do you love going to the beach??
