On a rare sunny Sunday I shot a few snaps with some new buys and I thought that this is typical British summer. It was about 19-ish degrees and sunny at random intervals. When I think British summer, this is it. Not those freak heatwaves we have for about a week and then it rains for two. This is British summer and how to style it can be tricky!
Summer weddings can be totally stunning, with blue skies as far as the eye can see, luscious green grass, and beautiful flowers (hopefully). The opportunity for your wedding photographer to utilise the glorious weather to get you the best light and background is also amazing. But you still need to get the outfit right. Like winter weddings, summer weddings also require a certain amount of seasonal consideration in the clothing. Keep on reading to find out more.
A slightly early August favourites coming your way this month as I just can’t get enough of these few things and I know that there won’t be anything in the next week or so that makes the cut like these guys have.
Neal’s Yard & Deliciously Ella – Rose, Lime & Cucumber Facial Wash & Moisturiser
If you know me, you’ll know that 90% of the time I dress like a 5-year old and, what can I say, I like it. If you’re telling me that dungarees and trainers aren’t comfortable and therefore an amazing daily outfit choice then quite frankly, you’re silly.
These Blue Patchwork Denim Dungarees are my new favourites, they’re perfect for travelling or flying in, heading to a festival or trekking around a new city on a weekend break. The fit on these dungarees is absolutely perfect. I’ve tried so many pairs of dungarees recently I was starting to lose the hope I was going to find some but these New Look ones were the answer to all my denim prayers.
Since the sunshine has made a sparse appearance I’ve got a couple of summer skincare favourites to share with you today. I was going to pop up a little June favourites post but then I realised that I didn’t really have that many things that I was loving that I hadn’t chatted about before on here so a full on favourites post definitely wasn’t necessary.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram you’ll know I’ve just come back from a week long Greek escape on the island of Corfu. Specifically, we stayed in Kassiopi, a tiny little harbour town on the East side of the island. We visited here last year and decided to venture back as it’s such a beautiful place and we wanted a surefire amazing holiday location.
Beach Body + is over and I’m here to tell you basically, whether it’s worth the money or not! Obviously, we all want to look like Lucy Meck, she’s a stunner but she’s also done a hell of a lot of hard work to get to where she is. Beach Body + is the intermediate to advanced plan for if you’re already into the fitness game and just want a little push before a big event i.e a holiday.
If you like Pina Coladas and smelling like a coconutty pineapple dream then you need The Body Shop‘s new Pinita Colada range in your life. Not sure they’re the lyrics but, hey! I was obsessed with their lime-drenched Mojito range that they released last summer and they’ve just brought out their next cocktail-inspired collection.
I’m off to Greece in a few weeks and I really want a swimsuit for this summer’s holiday, I just think they look really cool for days out when you’re doing activities like quad biking or sailing. I prefer this to having a bikini on when I’m being active on holiday. I’ve been shopping around and trying to find the best fit and I’ve been torn between getting a cheap and cheerful one and investing a little bit more. I’m yet to find the perfect suit so I thought I’d pop together a little Save VS Spend on the topic!
If a pineapple Krazy Straw cup doesn’t scream summer then I don’t know what does! How cute is this? It arrived on my doorstep in a really cute package from Bon Prix alongside a cute kaftan, a festival-ready floral headband, an awesome branded tote bag and some essential SPF products.
These dinky little SPF is what I want to base this post all about because sunscreen is so, so, so important!
