Beachy Essentials :

Beachy Essentials :

Some would say that your only worry should be if the tide is going to reach your chair, and although that does cross my mind whenever I’m relaxing by the shoreline, I also have found myself worrying about my skin and hair while I’m at the beach. It’s normal to worry about them because our skin + hair tend to dry up with sun and saltwater exposure, and especially when you’ve got treated hair. But throughout the years, I have found great products that I can’t live without them, for whenever we head over to a tropical destination. I have compiled a list for you guys of a few products that I have been using for a while now and a few other ones that I have recently added to my beach bag!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 70

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radian Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30

Sunscreen is extremely important no matter the occasion, I normally wear sunscreen every single day and I try to make sure that my daily moisturizer for both my body & face contain some amount of SPF. But of course, whenever you’re headed to the beach you need much more than just a little amount of SPF, so these are the 2 sunscreens I like to use while I am laying out in the sun. I actually don’t wear any tanning lotion, I prefer not to and I don’t really feel like I need it, because I tend to get a nice natural tan with these two sunscreens.

Banana Boat Moisturizing Aloe Lotion

Ladies! Please moisturize after laying out in the sun!!! It’s such an important step that most women tend to forget, but trust me you will notice the difference right after the 1st application. Whenever you lay out in the sun, your skin tends to get dry and moisturizing it with some Aloe will definitely help bond your skin together. What I would normally do, was that once we showered back at the room I would moisturize with Aloe all throughout my body.

Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Lotion

Like I said before, moisturizing is needed especially after a day out in the sun. So I personally like to ‘extra moisturize’, after the Aloe dries up, I go back and usually moisturize with a regular lotion. But I recently purchased this specific lotion, because of it’s great reviews. This natural glow moisturizer is truly a game changer ladies, it gradually created a flawless, natural-looking color while also hydrating my skin!

EOS Lip Balm

I’m not lying when I say that I use this lip balm on the daily, but I feel like lip balm is also very important when you’re headed to the beach! Just like your skin and hair, your lips tend to get dry and chappie, which is NOT cute! So make sure you get your favorite lip balm and stick it in your beach bag NOW!

Olaplex No 3, 4, 5 & 6

So when it comes to Olaplex, there’s only good things to say! I got these 4 products after I decided to lighten my hair and now I can’t live without them! They are a bit pricey, but worth every penny, because you will notice the difference in your hair once you use them. I basically washed my hair every single day that we were at the beach, and after every wash I would apply Olaplex No 6, which is a styling hair cream. The styling hair cream helped with keeping the frizz away and would make my hair extra soft. Now with Olaplex No 3, I only used it once throughout our whole trip. This specific product is a hair mask, so it’s not meant to be used every single day, using it just once did the trick!

Unbrush Detangling Hair Brush

A good detangling hair brush is a total must, especially after you get out of the water and you just want to brush out your hair – I would totally recommend this one because I’ve noticed that it doesn’t tug & pull my hair!

OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner

I always like to have my hair feel smooth, so whenever I was out of the water and ready to sunbathe, I would splat some of this coconut milk conditioner onto my hair and brush it through. It would obviously condition my hair and give it these cute ‘beachy wavey’ style!

OGX Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

And of course, you can’t forget your serum! I would apply this every single day before and after applying the coconut milk conditioner. I’ve even found it very useful for whenever I would want to style my hair up on a bun or ponytail, rather than using gel or moose!

Hopefully you will find these products useful for your next beachy getaway, and as always Happy Friday!✨💛🌴

Sanibel Island Outfit Diary :

Sanibel Island Outfit Diary :

Here is my first ever outfit diary! I decided I would take some photos/videos in each of my outfits throughout our mini-getaway at Sanibel Island, with the help of my Hubbager Mr. Lizano! Check out all of my outfits + links on how you can achieve the same exact looks!💛

Women’s Short Sleeve With Lace Details Shift Dress – Knox Rose

I wanted to be able to leave in something cute but comfy, because we were going to be stuck in a car for about 2 hours before we reached our destination. So I decided to wear this beautiful Mamey color linen dress from Target. I was able to link it above, but only in the color white, as that is the only color they currently have available.

Ribbed One Piece Swimsuit – Shade & Shore

Let’s talk about formfitting, this swimsuit wrapped around my body as if it were made specifically for me! The material was thick enough to give me full coverage, and offered the most perfect cheeky bottom!

White Palm Print Culottes & Tie Front Bralet

It’s not a tropical vibe, unless you’ve got a tropical set to go with it – blessed to have collaborated with Pretty Little Thing for this trip, because I got to wear the cutest outfits ever!

Pink Tie Dye Ribbed Bardot Balloon Sleeve Ruched Bodycon Dress

Tie-Dye is definitely the way to my C O R A Z O N, this bodycon dress fit so well + matched the vibrant sunset perfectly after a long beachy day!

Cheeky High Leg Monokini One Piece Swimsuit – Xhilaration Pink & Pacific Straw Fedora

Did someone say Fedora? This had to be one of my favorite beachy looks, I actually bought this swimsuit on our final run to Target right before our trip, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The color gave me major ‘tropical vibes’ and I thought it would go perfectly with the Heart-shaped Sunglasses that I also got at Pretty Little Thing!🦩

Tiger Print Bikini

Funny enough I got a bunch of DM’s regarding this Bikini I wore on our last beachy day, which is why I decided to link it above. I’ve had this bikini for over a year now, and it’s one of my favorite bikinis because of it’s print!🐅

Lime Bandage Rib Crew Neck Low Armhole Bodycon Dress

This peachy dress I wore on our last night at Sanibel caused sensation all throughout the island, especially to Alex’s eyes 😍 lol – he really wanted me to get this specific dress & insisted that I had to have it!

Dog Mom Graphic Tee & Mid-Rise Skinny Raw hem Ankle Jeans – Universal Thread

On our departure date, I decided to wear something a little more sporty. I didn’t post it up on the Insta’s Timeline, but I did post it up on my stories & you guys wanted all the deets! As many of you guys know, I had been on the look for some new denims, and I found the perfect fit at Target + I also picked up this cute Tee to represent my little Scoobs!🐶

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know f you would like to see more outfit diaries from every place I go to! Happy Hump Day!✨

Sanibel Island, FL :

Sanibel Island, FL :

You know that saying that traveling is the only thing you can spend money on that will make you richer – well, Alex & I definitely believe that! We’ve made it a habit to at least once a year plan a little getaway so we can relax, meet new places and create new memories. Since the beginning of this year we had a trip planned out for the weekend of our wedding anniversary, but had to cancel last minute for obvious reasons! Shortly after we canceled my family-business was mandated by the county to close until further notice & I was basically stuck at home, handling all of Marilin’s online orders, while Alex was working non-stop + wrapping up his last couple of weeks of PGY-1 residency. Honestly, I felt extra bad for Alex because I knew exactly how badly he really just wanted to take a few days off to relax, but at that current moment it wasn’t gonna be option.

Fast forward to June 27th (just to be exact), we booked a mini-getaway to celebrate the fact that Alex was officially done with his residency – the funny part was that I basically had less than 24 hours to pack up everything, because we were literally leaving the next day. Some would question why did we wait so last minute to book anything and the answer to that is quite simple, with everything that has been going on this past year, we didn’t want to book anything with anticipation and then have to cancel once again! I won’t lie, at first I was a bit skeptical as to where we should go, I knew it had to be somewhere local just incase an emergency or potential lock-down due to this pandemic. The great part of living in Florida, is that FL has beautiful beaches all throughout the state, but you have to be willing to drive just a little. We were looking for a place neither of us have ever been to and we had a few options, but one specific spot stood out the most for us and that was Sanibel Island. We wanted to go somewhere that was tropical and peaceful, and I must say that the other reason why we were so attracted to this location, was because of the amazing deal we got at the resort! DEALS are always the way to Alex’s heart 💛 😂!

ROOM TOUR ✨

We found this Resort right on the Southwest Gulf Coast of Sanibel Island, called Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. We were able to select from their spacious and fully-equipped condominium accommodations our Island Suite! They’ve got different condos to fit everyones needs, I personally liked the fact that it was spacious + very private/cozy at the same time. It honestly felt like we were in our second home, I even remember us leaving dinner one night and saying “now when we get home let’s sit on the balcony”! We reserved directly from their site with the Florida & Georgia Resident Discount; which included Breakfast for 2 every morning of our stay, beach towels, chairs & umbrellas, paddle boarding, kayaks, bikes to ride throughout the island and all the basics that a resort usually includes.

The resort is very centric to local restaurants & shops, which was something I absolutely loved, because you don’t have to fully rely on the resort if you’d like to grab something to eat. The resort also offers multiple restaurants/bars, but we really wanted to eat local food and I’m glad we did because we got to try out different restaurants. I feel like the best part of the resort was the fact that it included so many activities like bikes, kayaks and paddle boarding. We would normally do something active every day and then end up relaxing at the beach until 4:00 or 5:00 in the afternoon. Plus, by that time the low-tide was active and we would just walk right by the shoreline collecting seashells. The amount of beautiful seashells that you will find at Sanibel is insane, I have never seen so many seashells in my life! I mean, they don’t just call Sanibel a tropical island destination with miles of shell-strewn beaches for nothing!

Sanibel Island is definitely a must if you haven’t been to already, trust me! Needless to say, this trip was definitely all about relaxing, and that’s something we both needed! We laughed, we created new memories and we probably even found the one place we could always turn to for a mini-getaway!💛🌴✨ – Till we meet again Sani!

XOXO, Yesi 🥂
