Amanda de Cadenet, host of The Conversation, is exactly the sort of girl we can’t help but admire and envy. In addition to hosting her own talk show, Amanda is blessed with fabulous looks and style—plus she’s got a rock star husband, a handful of movies under her belt and a successful photography career. (We especially love her recent campaign for Roxy’s summer collection!) To help us stay in a summery mood as our Beach Week draws to a close, we’ve asked Amanda to share a few of her coastal must-haves!
What kind of beach bag do you use? I love my black J. Crew beach bag. It’s monogrammed (AdeC) and is in the biggest size they offer, so it fits everything.
Favorite sunscreen? My favorite is La Roche-Posay suncreen for the face in SPF 30.
Must-have makeup products? Moroccan oil hair shine spray is great to use before and after the beach. Another must-have is Epicurean Rose moisturizer, and RMS lip stain for cheeks and lips is awesome in any shade. Any HIPP chemical-free nail polish will do, but I’m loving this clean S4 color for my summer days.
Hat? I wear my hubby’s baseball caps! They’re mostly Lakers hats since he’s a big fan.
Sunglasses? Tom Ford sunglasses all the way!
Shoes? It’s either flip-flops or red Salt Water Sandals, which I love because they’re waterproof and my six-year-old daughter has the same pair.
Swimsuit? I have a big problem finding swimsuits that fit me. I have big boobs and a bum, so sometimes I have a harder time than others shopping for suits. Lately, I’ve been wearing a Topshop red polka-dot suit that fits really well.
What’s on your beach playlist? Currently, I’m listening to a lot of Rita Ora, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Karen Elson and Florence Welch.
