Take this quiz to see what essentials you need for the best summer ever
Warm weather, sand and a body of water: that's all you need for a perfect day at the beach, right? Um ... no.
Puh-lease, any smart beach babe knows you need A LOT more than that for a fun day in the sun. That's why you'll be bringing a beach bag packed full of essentials to get you through the day in style.
What do you need exactly? Well, that's where this quiz comes in. Depending on your plans for the day (volleyball tournament? tan line-free sunbathing? impromptu dance party?) and your style preferences, we'll tell you all the things that should make it into your bag.
Once you've got your beach bag essentials all packed and ready to go, time to prep something every beachgoer needs: the perfect play list. So what should be on your beach day play list? Obviously any songs that make you smile or get your party started, but for a lil' inspiration, check out some of our classic faves:
1. "Surfin' Safari" by the Beach Boys (Any Beach Boys songs would be pretty perf though)
2. "Island in the Sun" by Weezer
3. "California Dreaming" by The Mamas and the Papas
4. "Surf City" by Jan and Dean
5. "Summertime" by Will Smith
6. "Holiday" by Madonna
Sooo, just to recap, here's the formula for a perfect beach day: Step 1: Take this quiz. Step 2: Put together your beach bag essentials. Step 3: Make your beach play list. Step 4: Go to the beach (yeah, that one is kinda important).
