Waking up in Southern California could feel like a dream to many people. The weather is always beautiful, the air is always crisp, and you can smell the ocean air from just about anywhere. I wake up every morning just a short couple of miles away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. After living here for so long, you almost become numb to the fact that you have something so beautiful just a few blocks away, that so many people pay thousands to experience for a weekend vacation with their family. I have trained myself to become grateful for them by enjoying a beach sunset whether it’s with my friends- or just by myself, at least once a week!

A hydro flask or your choice of an insulated water bottle is also key because especially during the summertime you’re going to want some ice cold water to quench your thirst and it’s also no plastic waste. Hydro Flask reusable water bottles will get the job done.
Having a good book or kindle to read from will make the time pass quickly as you are laying out on the beach or by the pool. This is one of the summer essentials that you will not want to forget!
Packing a sun hat is a great idea because it is a cute accessory AND protects you from the sun’s harmful rays and keeps you cool on balmy beach days!
