Summer Favourites

I thought I would do a little post on things that I have liked this Summer, the are mostly miscellaneous items and a couple of beauty related things. I am so glad we have had a good summer so far! Touch wood I didn't jinx anything.
Summer favourites
These are a few books and a hair accessory I have been liking over Summer! When its sunny I've been enjoying just sitting in my garden reading these two, I love just sitting in the garden reading it lets time go by faster. And as I am sat in my garden you never want to make effort with your hair, you just want it out of the way so I have been using this headband from Primark to pull my hair all back.

When summer arrives I tend to sway towards colourful nail polishes. This nail vanish I got free when purchasing Collections lasting perfection concealer, the woman who served me said this nail vanish was most popular and to be honest I can see why, it is such a summery colour! It dries on so quick on your nails. BB cream is popular in summer so no surprise I wore it also. BB cream is a light formula and really good for summer if you want to wear make-up. I have enjoyed wearing this when I want coverage but not thick, high coverage.

It is a nightmare when your skin starts to peal and aftersun isn't doing the job so an alternative I like using a Vaseline Aloe Vera, this smells so refreshing and cools my body down nicely as well as helps stop my body from pealing. Cooling mists are great if you get too hot, this helped a lot when my face was getting really hot. Was so refreshing and I like to pop it in my bag when I go out.

Topshop are great for summer pumps and sandals at the moment. These camel colour loafer/brogue style shoes are perfect styled with some shorts or a nice dress. They are so comfortable too, I can see these lasting me quite a few years! Also from Topshop I have been wearing this floral day dress pretty much all the time, I absolutely love this dress. It is so comfortable and perfectly fitting on my figure. Again I think this dress will last me quite a few summers as the material is such good quality.I can never go one summer without buying some new sunglasses. These sunglasses are very quirky - like Willy Wonka style, they go with anything and suit my face quite well. 

I shall make this short and sweet as I am going to make a post on these separately! I love these Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, especially in the shade honey. They just make 'your lips but a better colour'. They are long lasting and very creamy not like most lip stains which dry your lips out.

Moroccan Oil has been a life savior for my ombre hair this summer. It is perfect if you have long hair and are after a bit of a healthy, shine. It smells incredible and always leaves my hair in such good condition. 

Other favourites of mine have been reading, listening to music and genuinely just sunbathing in the garden. 


What have you loved this summer??
