What’s in my Pool Bag?

Posted Jul 15 2012 11:06am

Sunday, a day for relaxing before the work week begins again.

Sundays aren’t always my favorite, just because of whats to come the following day, but I’d take a Sunday over a Monday anytime!

Today is going to be a pool day – which in my book equals a bum day.

On bum days, I pack up everything I’ll need to do a whole lot of nothing and head on over to the pool. A bum day requires careful planning ;)

So, What’s in my Pool Bag?

1. Sunscreen

Always, and most importantly..sunscreen. I use Banana Boat’s 15 SPF tanning oil. I’ve never had a problem with it but I do find I have to apply it pretty often. It tends to wash off once I get in the water. Otherwise the smell is great and I haven’t burned using it. I think they have ones with a higher SPF if you tend to have more sensitive skin.

2. Magazine or Book

Currently, I’m hooked on Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m a little late to the reading game of this series but I purchased the book a few days ago and haven’t been able to put it down. Interestingly read none the less.

3. Music

A bum day is not complete without some Jack Johnson or Dave Matthews all while laying by the pool. I have my music set up on my iPhone, so I just set my playlist and zone out. Doesn’t get any better.

4. Hat

I always make sure to pack some sort of hat in my beach bag. Its nice to have one on hand in case it gets too hot and you don’t want to end up with a sunglass tan (believe me, not fun!)  Right now, I’ve been wearing my fedora down by the pool. Stylish yet workable.

5. Water

If I plan on being a bum all day, I’ll usually try to pack a bottle of water and maybe some fruit. Gotta stay hydrated even in bum mode.

I hope you all get a chance to take a bum day every now and then. What are some of your favorite thing to do on you bum day? Is it reading to relax or maybe taking a walk?
