Lifestyle | Hello Summer

Thursday, 16 July 2015 |


It finally feels like summer is here right, well an English summer anyway! The sunny days seem to outweigh the rainy days and that makes me feel very happy!

Recently I have buying a few summer/holiday essentials. First up is this hat from H&M. I struggle finding hats to fit me, having a big head and thick hair proves to be a nightmare combination. I tried on so many in the store at first, there was one huge wide brimmed one, fitted my head and then I looked in the mirror, the brim was so big I was scared I would knock people out! Anyway this is the one that I chose.

I've also got some new nail polishes* to try. My nails seem to be growing really well at the moment so I want to make them look nice. This set is the Hawaii from OPI, you can buy it from here . There is the perfect combination of colours in the pack, just right for summer. They are also the perfect size for travelling, I usually get shellac on my nails when I'm going away but this time I took this set.

This is my favourite colour - Aloha from OPI. I'm a fan of the OPI nails, whenever I get my nails done I only go to specific salons that have the brand. I always find that my manicure lasts for at least a week when using OPI products.

I've written about the Lanolips Lipbalm before and I'm going to say it again, it's amazing! I use it day and night and my lips never get dry. I'm also using the Soap and Glory BB Cream with a SPF 25. It does leave a slight white sheen on my face so if you have dark skin just beware of that. It does, however leave my skin feel silky smooth and is a good base under my Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser.


Do you have any summer essentials?

Much Love

  1. You look so cute in that hat! I have similar problems when it comes to finding hats; I would love to wear them, but my head is huge and it has sooo much hair on it. :D I'm glad you found one that fits and it looks great. :) xx

    1. Thank you Hanna! Try H&M if you can, they actually do different sizes, I really wish I had bought another one! xx
