The sunshine is here!! I know it’s only April but I am making the most of it and this month we are off to Texas for a wedding! Yee Haw! Anyway I thought some of you are probably planning family holidays with your littlies and so I thought a post on beach essentials for your cuties might hit the spot.

Ripcurl beach bag 2First up is this beautiful beach bag – Okay not technically for your little ones but you carry all their stuff right? Anyway this one by Rip Curl is such a beautiful print and nice and roomy. Great for the plane too.

bodenponchoAnnie has one of these towelling throw on’s and they are sooo useful for drying a wriggly baby or just hanging out down at the beach when it gets a bit chilly. They need to do them in adult size! They come in a range of prints for girls and boys too.

You can never have too many hats and I love these stylish offerings for boys and girls. The fish print one is Mini Rodini and the Monte Carlo hat is by Andy and Evan both at Alex and Alexa.

Next swimming costumeI have already bought this ruffled floral print swimsuit for Annie – I couldn’t resist! Its super cute!

Littlelife tentOne of the best things we have is a beach shelter! So useful to not just get a bit of shade but to stop all your belongings getting sandy! Babies can sleep in it too whilst you read a book! (Yes we can dream!!)


After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
