A day at the beach

Today’s blog post calls for a small hypothetical, a meditation if you will.

As you read this, I’d like you to take a deep breath, in through your nose and out through your mouth, transporting yourself to a hot summer’s day.

The rhythmic crash of the waves becomes a lulling sound that lets your mind wander without any particular direction. With your eyes closed you feel the intense sensation of being bathed in sunlight and vitamin D. As the light becomes too much you take a light scarf to cover your eyes. Constructed of 100% Indian cotton it feels weightless and soft, protecting your skin as you sink back into your daydream.

You return to your towel and take a beautiful coral sarong to wrap around yourself whilst you explore the beach. As you come across a boulder you climb to the top, perched and pensive, it’s bliss.

The sunlight wanes and you return to your towel, gathering your things into your trusty tote bag that fits your every belonging. You meander back home, feeling sated, nourished and peaceful.

The beach experience is an iconic element of the Australian summer. As this magical time of the year approaches, the launch of the newest beach and pool-wear label BALLINA Accessories could not be more timely.

As the name suggests BALLINA Accessories is inspired by the sleepy beach town of Ballina in northern NSW. With its abundance of flora and fauna, designer Samrow Uppal took inspiration from her hometown and developed this simple and chic collection. With a range of scarves, sarongs and bags all marked with an iconic floral pattern, they are sure to be the perfect accessory for the sunny season.

Prices range from $29-$99 and are available for purchase online at
