My beach essentials for Paradise!


My beach essentials for Paradise!

It seems like everyone is longing for the beach these days. Which isn’t strange, as Spring officially arrived last week. It makes us long for the sun, the long summer nights and the warm weather. Some of us, like me, escaped to a secluded tropical island to meet summer a little bit earlier this year. As you might know, we went to Maui three weeks ago, and it was true paradise. We obviously had an absolute amazing time, also because we were well prepared. And to help you prepare for your hot, tropical and summer days, this article shares my favourite beach essentials!


1. MY PUTCHI hat!

Besides the fact that this hat is absolutely stunning, it is the best protection from the sun in the most elegant way. It is a very light hat, easy to combine and very flexible which makes it perfect for my travel adventures around the world. MY PUTCHI is a sustainable lifestyle brand that offers the most fashionable and unique accessories that are made by hand following a historical tradition. This hat brings your a beautiful mix of art, design, culture and giving back as MY PUTCHI works directly with the community artisans. Moreover, 20% of the sales are destined to supply the Orinoquiart foundation with medicines, for and school supplies. This all to help the children in need in these communities of the native country of the designer. Shop your beautiful travel essential now at


2. Missco Girl Clutch

The one thing you can’t go without on the beach, is a clutch to keep all your essentials safe and organised. This clutch by Missco Girl, is perfect for any visit to paradise as you can tell from the graphics. This Canadian label has a reputation for creating fun-loving eclectic pieces that reveal style, big dreams and all things unordinary, like your tropical adventures in paradise.


3. Bare Republic Sunscreen and hair protector

You simply can’t enjoy the sun without sunscreen. It is proven that UVA and UVB are harmful for your skin and hair (learn more about sun science here). So when you go to a tropical island like Maui, you want to have a sunscreen that is harmless to nature (so no chemicals), water resistant and easy to use. That is why I am so happy with the products by Bare Republic, the sunscreen and hair protector that has been created in accordance with all the latest facts in sunscreen technology. It is free of chemicals, water resistant, synthetic fragrances and parabens! Now you can swim all day, get a beautiful tan and enjoy the underwater world, without destroying the coral or harming the sea life.


4. Boamar Swimwear

Oke, now this is a no-brainer ladies. You need the perfect bikini to make the best out of your time in paradise! And as you know from this article, Collecting Summers with BOAMAR, there is one brand that stole my heart this year. BOAMAR creates unique, fun, flirty and comfortable pieces to enable you to enjoy your beach days at best. Trust me, summers are best collected with BOAMAR!


5. Go Pro

Before we left for Maui, I gave myself a little present, a Go Pro. And I can tell you, it is my favourite accessory! Because what happens on the beach is just as fun as what happens in the water: taking selfies with snorkels, photographing turtles and filming the coral. Be ready for the vlog of Maui soon, that will show you even more of the beautiful island and underwater world of Maui..!

  • What a great list of essentials, girlie! I’ve heard such great things about Go Pro, I wish we would’ve brought it instead of some cheap waterproof camera we got on our last trip; we lost all our photos when it broke apparently from water damage, but it was a “waterproof” camera, lol! Anyway, I also love both that hat and your swimsuits, too. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
