Pool Day Essentials

As soon as the temperature hits 30°C, I’m off to the pool! It’s simply the most relaxing place to be when it’s too hot to do anything. You can lay on your towel, read a book, snack on some fruit and simply soak in the positive energy there. Going to the pool is often a spontaneous decision, so I’ve created a list of my most important pool bag items that I wanted to share with you! Continue reading
