Well summer is in full swing! Woohoo! So its about time I got my butt in gear and made a summer essentials post! Plus I’m not going to lie… I’m missing my blogger friends!
First things first…If you are pale I feel ya pain! Lets be honest we are not made for this weather!! However if your not fair skinned this “essential” is still really essential!! So keep on top of that sun cream application! It’s recommended that you apply it every 2 hours. I am all for getting a nice glow but you can actually get a tan even if you wearing sun protection so there is no excuses!
Not only do they look gorgeous but they will actually enable you to see instead of squinting! Squinting is one of the biggest causes of pre-mature wrinkles! Keep those pesky crows feet away and buy a pair!
Mine are from Newlook, I am loving the matte finish on them. Primark also has some really cute affordable ones right now!
I did a post of picking frames to suit your face shape that you can check out here!
Water is a essential all year round but particularly important during the summer. Not only does it keep you hydrate but it makes your skin flawless! Personally I do not drink enough water so I am going to try my best and purchase one of these really cute water bottles. Its much easier to get the amount you need when its right there in front of you! Its recommended that you aim for about 2L of water a day. If your not a fan of water you can always chop up some fruit, I like strawberries, and throw them in there for some flavour! Also keep a glass by your bed!
Fake it till you make it!
False tan is a much safer way of having that sexy summer glow. So instead of cooking yourself in the sun opt for a cheeky spray tan! If you are more body conscious do it yourself with one of these great alternatives! St. Tropez gives you a beautiful, natural looking tan as it doesn’t have that orange pigment in it that everyone is so conscious of!
You can purchase St.Topez products here!
Treat yourself to a new bikini or swimming costume! Tis the season after all!
I love this from Newlook!
This summer I am loving play-suits! Or rompers as they are called in America! This one I am sporting is rather an equired taste but I love it! I got this one of my trip to America a few years back!
I am also loving coral and orange colours! I got this beautiful top from Primark for just £5. I love the chain strap details!
No-one likes their hair in their face when it is hot and sticky outside! This is my go-to hair style as of current! It is so easy and perfect for days when you want your hair completely out your face! You can customize it with a few summery accessories too! Personally I like to mix the edgy and girly look with a few curls and this spiked head band!
May I just add this hair isn’t mine! I wish!
Keep it natual! This BB cream from The Body Shop is a great option if you want a light coverage! Always opt for waterproof makeup in the summer too! Ya never know what could happen!
So there they are! What are your summer essentials? Do you have any plans this summer? Let me know down below!
Whatever you are doing stay safe and have a beautiful day! xxx
