|Beach Bag must haves for a Nantucket and beyond getaway!|
Nantucket Island was one of my stops on my tour of New England a summer or so ago. I can tell you the beaches on Nantucket Island are amazing. Except for a few jellyfish, the water is warm and the surf incredible. Perfect for swimming or simply sunning, you can get some of the Island's flavor by reading "In My Footsteps - A Traveler's Guide to Nantucket by Christopher Setterlund (Schiffer Publishing). Now whether you are going to a New England beach or somewhere else there are a few essentials you'll want to pack in your beach bag. Here are a few new items to include this summer for your best time ever at the beach!

|Mason Pearson's iconic boar bristle brush and hand polished combs.|
I can remember visiting my grandmother and going to her bedroom to play at her vanity. Among the fragrant little perfume bottles and powder puffs was a brush set in sterling silver. The bristles were of natural hair otherwise known as boar bristle. My mother had a similar brush and her hair always had a beautiful shine. England based Mason Pearson and Kent & Sons brushes are two of the oldest, heirloom quality brush makers who still produce them to this day. In fact Princess Diana was said to keep a Mason Pearson Brush in her handbag. I have a travel sized Kent Boar Bristle brush in my bag!
