that Are Inevitable
on Every Beach Trip
By Shen Mascariñas
As the temperature starts to rise, so does the number and seriousness of beach plans (made, ditched and re-made). Before you know it, you’ll be escaping off to the only place where the blazing sun is perfectly acceptable and even hoped for. You’ll be packing for a much-needed dose of vitamin sea, and in your beach bag—as important if not more of a necessity—will be your phone (and for some, even pocket Wi-Fi), of course. How else will you document your trip?
Since we’re already playing Madam Auring, allow us to continue. And although we can’t make your beach trip, we have a pretty good idea what kind of content you (and possibly 98% of the millennial population) will be creating. Did your summer escapade even happen without one of these social media posts?
The Room Tour
Most seen on Insta-stories with a carefully curated summer song playing in the background and with the quintessential ending of #MyRoomView. Don’t forget to type “home for the next few days” with the Insta-font that best suits your personal branding.
The Wave Boomerang
What’s a trip to the beach without a boomerang of the waves crashing into the shore? Although not a requirement, feel free to add an emo quote—something about persistent love or finding your purpose. Don’t be shy; we know you want to *wink*.
The Sand Flatlay
A beach towel isn’t really for shielding your sensitive parts from the sand. No, silly; its actual purpose is to be your flatlay background. Don’t forget to include your vacation read for added intellect points, along with your sunnies—the pointed, villain-looking ones—for the ultimate sand flatlay.
The Beach Cocktails Cheers
You do it on every restaurant, bar and nice-looking house with glasses anyway; what’s stopping you now? That’s right, nothing, absolutely nothing. In fact, with the beach as your background, your ever-reliable cocktails cheers content will be 2748x more effective!
