Fashion Director of Miansai, Rachael Russell, is showing us what’s inside her perfectly curated beach bag. You will always find this jewelry designer carrying a combination of her favorite beauty products, the best of Miansai and all in a killer canvas tote. So let’s start shopping!

Rachael lives by Glossier Invisible Shield, a daily sunscreen with a SPF of 35 so you are always protected when you are outside. “There is nothing as painful as a sunburn so I’m always using Glossier’s Invisible Shield. I love how the formula is a clear gel so it doesn’t leave a white cast.” Helping to prevent sun damage is first priority so we are making room in our beach bag for all the sunscreen.

We all love those natural beachy waves after a day in the sun and Rachael has found a way to keep them strong even after you’ve left the beach. “My hair is always best after the beach so I like to lock the look in by misting IGK’s Beach Club Texture Spray for lightweight hold!” Rachael makes sure to always carry the IGK Beach Club Texture Spray with her to bottle up that sea salt texture. 


No one can ever have two much chapstick, that’s a fact, so who is ready to try Rachael’s favorite? “Drunken Elephant Lippe Balm is my ride or die lip balm. Did I mention it’s anti-aging and 100% clean!” Say no more we are already adding to our carts!

Get that perfect glisten while basking in the sun with Boscia Rosewater mist with Wtich Hazel, “When I get a little too hot at the beach I like to mist my face with Boscia’s Rosewater Mist with Witch Hazel in order to absorb any excess oils and hydrate my face!” We will take five of those!

Trying to find different ways to accessorize while you are on the beach without looking like you are on your way to the dinner is tough, so we are taking some tips from this jewelry guru. Rachael heads to the beach with her favorite Miansai bracelet, a great way to add a little extra something on the beach while still being practical. “You will never see me without my diamond Thin Screw Cuff by Miansai.” 

Best way to accessorize your swimsuit this summer is with the Miansai Sunglass Safety, “Keeps my sunglasses right where I want them in the chicest way possible!” A little bling with the added help of securing your sunglasses; genius!

Onia Swim creates classic silhouettes with beautiful patterns and textures. This Onia underwire one piece will give you a great shape with a minimal and fun floral print. “Absolutely love Onia Swimwear for the flattering styles and quality materials.” Pair your favorite Onia suit with a minimal leather sandal and you will have that dream beach look.
