Beach Bag Essentials

I'm in a tizzy with my to-do's as I write this.

{it's 2 am... I leave at 8 am... haven't started packing...}

But hey- this time tomorrow,
I'll have been at the beach for 9 hours. 

Serenity now.

I'll be bringing a swimsuit, sunglasses, iPhone, sandals, a dress or two,
 and makeup... well, maybe, we'll see about that last one.

One thing that for sure is coming with me...
is my beach tunes playlist.

I made this lineup when my family used to go sailing in the BVI 
when I was a teenager....
so are most some of the songs dated & cheesy?


But will the music always remind me of the beach?

Oh yeah.

 Aspiring Kennedy's
Songs of Sunshine

Sleepwalk- Santo & Johnny
Is This Love- Bob Marley
Kokomo- Beach Boys
Fools Rush In- UB40
Son of a Sailor- Jimmy Buffet

If you're aren't as into kitschy, steel drum, beach music as I am...
you'll might enjoy
