Summer is finally here, Candy Girls. While the heat may be unbearable, this is the perfect time to get out of the house and hit the beach. Here are a few things you need to prepare before digging your toes in the sand and the sea. 

 1  Sunscreen

First things first, you need to take care of your skin. The sun may feel good for your skin, but prolonged exposure can lead to harmful effects such as sunburn and later on, wrinkles. Make sure to lather up on some sunscreen before lounging on the sand. Your skin will thank you for it.

 2  Sunglasses

The bright sunshine may be a welcome addition to your days spent indoors studying, but its glare can hurt your eyes. Protect your eyes and look ultra stylish in the process by donning your favourite sunglasses. It also helps hide your eyes as you stare or "casually glance" at cute guys on the beach.

 3  Swimsuits and cover-ups

Being out of school brings more freedom in your style, and the beach is the perfect place to show off your carefully curated summer outfits. Be beach-ready by wearing the cutest swimsuits, but do yourself a favor by wearing your favourite cover ups. Trust us, it gets cold as you leave the water and tumble onto the shore. You won't want sand to infiltrate your swimwear, do you?

 4  Book

Ah, the sound of waves crashing on the shore. It's the best background music as you get lost in your current read, isn’t it? Bring along your favorite book for when you unwind after a swim. Better yet, bring along some pen and paper as well and get writing! The sun, sand, and sea will provide plenty of inspiration.

Unless you're going to the beach for some me time and soul searching, the beach is best enjoyed with your family or friends. It'll be fun as you have people to catch up with after the stress of school. Having people with you will also make sand castles more fun, and don't forget about burying your feet and the sand and making your mermaid tail dreams come true.

I'm a Candy Girl because I am a modern day Elle Woods, refusing to be boxed by stereotypes. Liking pink and other girly things does not mean I can’t do things society does not expect of me. I am a Candy girl because having flaws do not limit me from chasing my dreams and standing up for what I believe in. I can showcase my smarts and skills, all while looking my best.
