Prepare For An Island Getaway

One of the most fun parts of a beach vacation or an island getaway involves the documentation process. Many people love to bring their cameras to take lots of pictures and videos because it helps them solidify the memories and they’ll also be able to share these same memories with their friends via postcards, picture frames and social media. Now, personal upkeep can be a little challenging in another country. After all, it can be hard to find a new manicurist, hairdresser and more while on vacation. Unless the vacation has been an extended one for a few months, there’s not enough time to meet a new stylist and build a relationship with them. Every woman wants to feel beautiful while she’s on vacation. In this case, there are a few things to do ahead of time.

1. Get a manicure and pedicure before the trip.
With sand in between the toes and all the many close-up pictures, it’s best to have an amazing manicure and pedicure ahead of time. Book your appointment the day before the trip so that the set is as fresh as possible. Remember that gel manicures last a lot longer so consider that option. Gel nails are also awesome because they won’t chip or break during the span of the first two to three weeks.

2. Purchase a few hats and scarves.
If you’re going to be on the beach a whole lot, it’s best to pack a few wide-brimmed straw hats. Those large hats are classic, stylish and instantly make any woman look a lot more fabulous. Scarves are nice for the times when you don’t want anything in your face or covering your eyesight. It’s also great for the times when you’d like to sit out and get a full tan from head to toe.

3. Purchase a wig.
Many women don’t want to deal with the hassle of doing their hair every day of the vacation. Many women love the ease of extensions or braids. If you don’t want anything too tight, consider purchasing a wig. Many African American wigs work perfectly for women of color who want to enjoy a protective style without the commitment of braids.

4. Bring a few beauty products.
Since it’s vacation time, try to avoid putting on a full face of makeup every day. It’s easy to enjoy a bright, bold lipstick, a coat of mascara and a little bit of BB or CC cream. Stay hydrated and moisturized with lots of water and good lotions. Other than that, it’s best to keep it really simple.

With these tips, it’ll be easy for any woman to enjoy the ease of vacation and still maintain an effortlessly beautiful look. Don’t be afraid to step outside the box and try a new wig color or a bolder lip. It’ll just add to the glamour of the whole trip! Have fun being the beauty of the beach!

Sarong Ties For Your Sarong

My family (except for my husband) loves the beach and water. My eldest daughter has won medals in several swimming competitions. One reason my husband does not really like the beach is that he sunburns so easily. He always wants us to cover up when we are out of the water, to reduce our exposure to direct sunlight.

One way he suggested to do this is with a sarong. Sarongs are cool and cover the skin, reducing direct sunlight exposure. But how do you keep a sarong on? I have tried just tying the ends together, but they often will slip. Sarong ties work much better. They will hold your sarong in place not matter how active you are. They are easy to tie and easy to remove when you are ready to jump into the water.

Now we have a way for me and my girls to enjoy the beach while my husband hides in the shade with a book and a beverage. Do you think I can get him in the water? He does swim and yes men can wear sarongs too, but I am sure he will settle just for a t-shirt and shorts. Besides, we girls look more sexy in a sarong. What do you think?
