Hey! Welcome to summer! This is my favourite season, which is why I wanted to share with you some of the things I need to get myself in the perfect mood. Enjoy!

Bright Nails

I don’t know about you but bright nails just remind me of summer. Out come the neons and pastels, and the burgundy shades go into hibernation. Every summer I aim to refresh my polish collection, here are some of my favourites:

Dry Shampoo

The sun takes a toll on my hair, so if I have 2nd day hair, a little spritz of dry shampoo really gives my hair a new lease of life. I like to use the Batiste dry shampoo as it is cheap and does not give your hair white patches, which others do.

Thermal Spa Water

This is a super easy way to keep your face and body incredibly hydrated. Its so small, therefore convenient to squeeze into your bag. I absolutely love it as it keeps me so cool on a hot summer’s day.

I personally find that in the summer, the last thing I want to wear are boots or high heels, but to just rock a pair of trainers instead. That’s why I recently added to my trainer collection a pair of low top converse, which I highly recommend if you haven’t purchased already.

Sun Cream

For the wellbeing of your skin, I would suggest buying a sun cream, even if UK weather can be very unpredictable. I bought a travel size bottle, easier for application throughout the day, from Boots and it does the job, plus extra (it moisturises my face too).

For me, these are a staple for summer because they are so comfortable as well as making it super easy to be a great #OOTD. I bought mine from New Look for £15 (pictured below, but they are readily available anywhere, so go and check them out!



With summer comes festival season, and with that comes lots of new music. I made a Spotify playlist last year, and considering it was such a hit, I thought I would do it again. Feel free to party along to these tracks, which will be updated weekly right across summer!
