5 Must-Haves in Your Summer Beach Bag for Tech Savvy Women

We are at Summer-Peak!

Hitting the beach any time soon? Whether it’s in your town or overseas, you gotta have all the essentials to enjoy your time fully at the beach.

These are must-haves in your summer beach bag this year. Even more, for smart, savvy, fashionable, and pro beach-goers!

1. Turkish Towels

You’ll find rave reviews about Turkish towels, sometimes known as Peshtemal towels, all over the internet. These cotton towels feel like silk and take up less room than a normal beach towels, in addition to being highly absorbent and quick-drying. And they come in many colors and patterns to best fit your personality (and match your bathing suit too, of course.)

2. Water-proof Case

Nothing is worse than getting sand in those tiny crevices of your phone or stuck to your favorite lip balm. A water-resistant case/pouch will keep all of your essentials safe from the elements.

3. Podo

Love selfies, but hate selfie sticks? Podo is a “stick-and-shoot” camera that will bring your selfies to the next level. Simply stick it to any nearby surface, adjust the position, and take the photo from an app on your phone. Keep the back clean and you’ll be able to reuse Podo over and over again, and you’ll never have to bring a selfie-stick again.

4. Beach-ready Sound System

Don’t be the noisy one at the beach, but a waterproof/sandproof/shockproof portable speaker is just the thing to make your best beach day. “Altec Lansing Life Jacket Bluetooth Speaker” also floats in water and has up to 10 hours of battery life, and it’s Bluetooth, so you’ll be able play music from your phone while you take the speaker for a dip.

5. Functional Beach Bag

Probably the most important thing to remember on your trip to the beach is the bag itself. While beach bags come in all different styles and uses, I’m obsessed with this extremely functional beach bag from Dezzio. It holds your towel, protects your electronics, keeps your drinks cold, and even charges your phone, satisfying every need you could possibly want in a beach bag.

5 Easy Safety Tips for Solo Female Travelers

Summer time!

We are out, and we are going around. It’s a traveling season!

As much as we all want to travel more, there are tons of reasons why women don’t travel alone, especially to several particular countries.

While it IS true that you have to be extra careful when you go alone, most of the common dangers you will face CAN be prevented easily.

Here are some easy breezy safety tips for you to use on your next solo trip.

Tailor your research to the type of place you are going and your own travel style. Check out the blogs other solo female travelers or posts for them. They are full of practical and good advice.


Make sure someone at home has all your information. Scan everything and give a copy to a friend and keep one with you. Do schedule for regular check ins with them too.

Chatting to local staff is not just a great way to ask about the local area. Ask them about any dangers currently happening that you should watch out for. Those information can’t be found in your travel book.

Also make yourself known to your hotel staff who may notice if you don’t return as expected. Tell them where you’re going and when you think you’ll be back.


Always get a card from the place you’re staying. If they don’t have cards, write the name, address and phone number and keep it with you. You can use this info in case you lose your way back. I also keep them as souvenirs personally.

It may be tough to look like a local, but try to mingle if possible. Don’t spread your map at a corner of a big street and stare at it to figure out how to get there. Learning a few phrases in the local language beforehand helps too.


Like don’t flash a stack of cash on the street. Store them safely (like in your secret pouch under your shirt) and have a pocket for some changes for a quick access.

Keep your valuables close to you or on you. Take extra time to be safe. Don’t get drunk alone. Have a travel insurance. Get a international calling card. You know the basic drill.
