Beach Essentials ☼ | Shann0nRenae X Tripping.com

Hi everyone! Long time no blog!

For this blog, I got the opportunity to team up with Tripping.com. Tripping.com is a super awesome site which helps you to find cheap holiday rentals in places like Florida. Recently I've been dying to go on a holiday, and seeing this site made me realise that they can save you so much cash, which can be used for spending money 😉. 

Tripping.com got me thinking what my essentials are to bring to the beach or on a tropical holiday. 

1. Sunscreen / Tanning Lotion
The amount of times that I have gotten extremely sunburnt at the beach is getting to be ridiculous. I never forget it now. Please make sure that you pack sunscreen or tanning lotion as, I can't stress enough how much you will be in pain for the next few weeks and, of course we want to avoid skin cancers. I usually use SPF 50+ just to be that extra bit covered and tend to lean towards waterproof sunscreen. Stay safe! 

2. Some Cute Bathers
Of course after the health and skin safety, I go straight towards what cute bathers I should wear. My go-to is from Seafolly Australia which you can see to the left on Gigi Hadid. Obsessed.

3. Book
A book is necessary for me to bring. If I don't bring one I get really fidgety, get bored and want to leave. Usually I go to the beach with my boyfriend and he loves to stay there for a while. So, to help past the time and not annoy him, I need to pack a book. The book I was reading this Summer was the Khloe Kardashian, "Strong Looks Better Naked", which I highly recommend.

4. Earphones
Again a must! Once I get too bored of the book I'm reading, I am looking for something else to occupy me! I love listening to music while on the beach. However, I don't like disturbing others beach day, so I opt for earphones. Something about listening to music on the beach just makes you feel so happy and amazing!!

5.  Sunglasses
Hello. I need to talk about this. Sunglasses. Are. A. Must. Why you might ask? When tanning on my back my eyes get super sore from the sun, so UV protected glasses are a must for me. Usually I wear my glasses all the time on the beach to protect my eyes and when tanning it is sunglasses + a top/shirt on top to protect my eyes. I am always about protection especially with my eyes.

6. Water
Being on the beach for hours can really dehydrate you. I like to bring a 1-litre water with me to sip on and keep hydrated. I also like to drink a whole other bottle when I get home just to be extra safe!

7. Fruit
Fruit is a essential. There is nothing better than Summer fruits on the beach. Mangoes, Watermelon, Oranges, Grapes and Apples are my favourites. 

8. Cover-Ups
Just to be a little more safe I always like to bring a cover-up. Whether that is a casual tee or a beach dress, I like to have that option to cover and protect my skin if I'm at the beach for a long period of time. 

9. GoPro
I am obsessed with making videos. If there is any opportunity to make a cool video or get a cool photo, my GoPro is onto it. If you are always at the beach or travelling, I highly recommend GoPro's for that reason.

10. Snorkel
My boyfriend and I love snorkelling, we could do it 24/7 if it was possible. I've always snorkelled with my family on holidays and I think that is where I got obsessed with it. I love seeing fish and other creatures and using my GoPro to record videos. I think there is so much peace in the ocean life. I love it. I recently made a video which you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw8mRxjYis0

I hope you enjoyed reading through my beach essentials, and I hope this helped some of you who are entering Summer really soon.  Make sure to check out Tripping.com if, you are looking for cheaper rentals for an upcoming holiday! 

Much Love, 
Shannon xx

New Year Comes New Resolutions ... | Shann0nRenae

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog!!

I hope you all had an amazing New Year and Happy 2017!! Hopefully your new year has started swell..

I wanted to come online to share my New Years resolutions and goals with you all, as I have had some time to contemplate what I want to focus on in 2017.

I chose some resolutions that I actually think I might be able to stick with throughout the year, which also had to be realistic, lets be honest (otherwise they never get done)
> Make more healthier meals and choices
> Focus on my career and further skills that I need to achieve higher
> Clean up more, detox my living space

Goals also had to be able to be achievable and I only came up with 3 so I could really focus on them. I feel like if you make too many goals or even resolutions you never really get to finish or complete them..
> Save as much money as I can
> Rent a house
> Read more books

Leave me some of your resolutions or goals below as I am always interested to see what you guys are interested in to better my blog!!

Much Love, 
Shannon xx

Christmas Outfit & New Years Inspo 2016 | Shann0n Renae

Hey Beauties!!

I thought I would just do a quick little blog post on outfit inspirations for Christmas or New Years Eve.

Rather than writing through all the outfits like I usually do, I thought I would mix it up and let the outfits talk for themselves. 

I tried to make outfits for all occasions and that would be universal and can easily be modified to your own preferable style.

Let me know what outfit was your favourite below and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!!

Christmas Gift Guide 2016 | Shann0n Renae

Hello everyone, 

It's that time of year again... Christmas!! Christmas is my favourite time of the year, but it can get really confusing with what to gift everyone!!

So, I've designed a list that may and hopefully inspire and help you with what to buy your loved ones this year!

1. Gift sets: Gift sets from places like Mecca and Sephora will really satisfy the makeup lovers. There are so many from brands like Too Faced, Benefit and Tarte for example. You can even find some mini gift sets if you don't want to splurge too much money.
2. Organiser: An organiser or diary for 2017 is the perfect gift as the year winds up and we begin another one! There are so many diaries to choose from. I know Kmart have some luxury looking ones for really cheap or you can get a more expensive and nicer one, the choice is really yours! Another idea is a fitness organizer or weekly planner, I really like these because it can help people be organised and motivated.
3. Polaroid Camera: Polaroid cameras are great, I've wanted to get my hands on one for a really long time. I also love how they come is so many colours, so that you can personally choose a colour specifically for that special someone. Another great thing about Polaroids is that they can capture memories to keep.
4. Fluffy Slides: These damn fluffy slides. These slides are everywhere and are such a trend at the moment. I LOVE AND NEED. 
5. Calvin Klein Set: Something that I am obssessed with is my Calvin Klein set. They literally have the most comfortable underwear I have ever worn ever. If you're stuck with ideas, a set from CK would be the way to go. 

1. Go Pro: If you have a bit more money to spend on him this Christmas get him a GoPro. GoPro's are seriously so great for anyone and can be used for anything. It's definitely on my list.
2. Watch: A special watch for someone is always a great idea. And, they also price differently, depending on what brand or style you want to get. They are also such a practical gift and, of course your boy will love it.
3. Branded Underwear sets/socks: Boys love this stuff! A really nice set or underwear or socks like Tommy Hilfiger or Calvin Klein, can make him feel super special. Boys don't really splurge on big brands for underwear or socks, so this would be a great present idea.
4. UE boom: Portable Speakers are also really handy to have. UE Boom is the brand I recommend to everyone. They are so easy to transport and have great sound quality and battery power. UE Boom also have 2 different styles that you can look into depending on your price range.
5. Pen: If you want to get your loved one something a bit more special, a really nice pen is the way to go. Hugo Boss have some really nice ones, and I'm sure there are many more brands that can fit into your price range. Pens are always handy and can be a bit more special to use one that has been gifted.

1. Fitbit: Fitbits are great for everyone. Especially if they are interested with becoming fit for the new year. There are also so many styles and colours for everyone and one that could possibly fit the budget. I got my mum one last year and she loved it.
2. Suitcase: Suitcases are great if you are heading off on holidays soon. Such a great idea to buy your loved one a new suitcase and maybe even fill it with a few travel essentials!!
3. Headphones: Headphones are always a great idea... Enough said.
4. Fragrances: There are some great fragrances out there, even some unisex ones like Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 or CK2.
5. Portable Charger: Super great for those people who are always on the go. Portable chargers are always good for those tech geeks or busy workers. 

1. Coupon book: Always super cute if you are on a budget. This is also great if you often get bored with your partner, just pull out the book and use a coupon!! 
2. DIY Photo Calender - I think this is such a cute idea to give someone special in your life. You could even do this with all your gifts! It's also a great idea for a last minute gift!! Here's one that I absolutely adored -  http://indiecrafts.craftgossip.com/2016/01/04/diy-instax-photo-calendar/
3. Bath Bombs: Believe it or not, bath bombs are actually super easy to make. There are so many recipes on Pinterest which will help you out with creating your own!!
4. Dream Catchers: Such a gorgeous and personal gift for your friends. You can also make it really personal and special for them. It is also a really great gift idea if you have forgotten a present and need to get one ASAP, without it costing too much.
5. Coffee Scrubs: AMAZING GIFT IDEA. It can also be used for anyone. Again there are so many recipes for this and if you make a big batch and just package them beautifully, it can look like you spent loads of money and time for those special people. Also really great as a last-minute gift which isn't too expensive.

So, there is a few ideas for gifts that you can get for your loved ones. 

Hope this helped! And Merry Christmas!!

Much Love, 
Shannon xx
