The-Couch---Where-to-watch

Some of our favorite picks are listed below. For a full array of items, watch the segment above.

Roxy ‘Chill Out Cooler Tote’, $40, Roxy.com

This tote from Roxy works double duty. Not only is it roomy and lightweight for traveling but the bottom has a separate insulated cooling panel that you can unzip and store your food or drinks in when making a trip to the beach. (It’s also great for storing beauty products that might melt in the sun for a last minute day trip).

Henri Bendel ‘Wet Bikini Bag’, $38, HenriBendel.com

Great place to store your wet bathing suit when heading straight from the beach to dinner.  Pack it right in your Roxy all in one tote and you are good to go for the night.

TLC & You Packable Hats:  $29-$39, TLCandYou.com

Hats are one of the most important things to remember, especially if your destination includes lots of hot temps and soaking in the sun! But after your bags are packed and it’s time to run out the door, the last thing you want is to carry your topper because you’re afraid of smooshing it and ruining its shape. These fun floppy options are 100% foldable, packable and machine washable.

Malibu C ‘Swimmers Treatment’ packets: $3.50/packet or $42/box of 12, MalibuC.com

This is the ultimate tune-up for your hair after a day at the pool, ocean or just too much sun. These one-time use packets are great for traveling and help remove damaging toxins to restore moisture and vibrance back to your locks. It also has natural UV-inhibitors to help preserve your hair’s shine and color. Perfect for a beach-y getaway!
