My Summer Essentials

The weather has become so much hotter recently and the real summer is finally coming out! I thought I would put together a little list of my summer essentials for this year which hopefully you will all find helpful.

Magazines - Perfect for reading when you're sunbathing! I personally find it really difficult to get into a good book. I'm so picky and my mind always wonders so before I know it, I've read half a page and I have no idea what it even said! Because of this, magazines are perfect for me. They're a quick read with imagery that keeps me captivated the whole way through. I really recommend a subscription as, in the long run, it's more cost effective and from magazines like ELLE, you receive a special cover and lots of discounts on products, events and experiences.

Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser - This product is a life saver! Body moisturisers take so much time to apply and use up so much product so fast, but this really does seem to last forever! Because of its spray-on form, it gives the perfect amount and soaks into the skin so quickly and easily.

Face Masks - Perfect for relaxing, unclogging pours, and feeling clean and refreshed on those horrible hot and sweaty summer days.

Foots Works Exfoliating Scrub - Having nice looking feet is essential for summer because we usually find ourselves walking around bare foot or in sandals. This scrub is a perfect and quick solution for dry skin on feet!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Concealer - If you're wanting a tan you obviously don't want to be putting on a lot of foundation. BB or CC cream often works really well to give you coverage and some are specifically designed to make tanning possible through the makeup. However, when it's hot, I don't want to be applying an often cakey feeling cream or mousse on my face. I use The Body Shop Tea Tree Concealer to cover up any spots or blemishes and leave it at that! It covers really well, lasts all day long and because of the tea tree ingredient it helps heal the spots while wearing it.

Black Faux-Leather Bucket Bag - (Primark, £8) I had been saving up for a £120 bucket bag exactly like this from asos so when I came across this cheap knock off version in Primark, I couldn't resist! It's big enough to carry everything I need and has a very festival yet classy look about it.

Metallic Cleated Sandals - (Topshop, £25) I saw these on sale in Topshop and I just had to get them! I have similar shoes in black but these have a smaller block heel and more of a summer vibe because of it's lighter colours.

Dangly Earrings - (£4.99, New Look) These glisten through my hair with the light reflecting off of them on sunny days. They draw attention to my hair and help to accentuate natural highlights. The only downfall to this specific pair is that the natural shape it has as it falls deforms when the wind blows into them.

Retro-style Round Mirror Sunglasses - These are the perfect statement piece to any summer outfit! Not only do they look amazing, but they do their job by protecting my eyes from the sun and the mirror effect gives them a unique look compared to other sunglasses.
