I Heart Summer Tag

I just love lazy summer days in the garden! I’m currently writing this on a lazy Sunday afternoon; my Son is having a nap in his cot, I’ve got the laptop and baby monitor in the garden, and have a cheeky glass of Pimms next to me. It’s great when you get to work outside!

I came across this tag when I was browsing through some WordPress users I follow, and thought it was a very fitting post!

What is your favourite bronzer for summer?
I don’t use many bronzers as I tend to stick to what I know, so the ones I love never seem to change. I absolutely live for my Benefit Hoola Bronzer, and I also love my Bourjois Delice de Poudre in shade 51. I don’t own many others as these are my ultimate ones! Maybe I need to go shopping and venture into new territory 😉

You are relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on?
If I’m not drinking a variation of herbal tea it’d probably be a cocktail of some sort. I love Cosmopolitans and Mojitos, and am partial to a Long Island Iced Tea on occasion! But any cocktail would do!

What is your favourite summer lip product?
I have a slight addiction to lip products, as you might already know, so I’m not short of my seasonal lip products. In Summer I’m all about the glossy lips, so if I wear lipstick I tend to go for formulas that are more sheer or satin, as opposed to matte. I love coral shades and fuchsia pinks for Summer time.

Do your prefer the pool or the beach?
A little of both, depending on my mood. I absolutely love lounging around the pool, but I hate how busy they can get, so I tend to opt for the beach more often.

Summer = crazy hair! What is your must have styling product?
I’m not a big hair care person, so I tend to keep it relatively simple. I love using a drop of Moroccan Oil on my hair to keep it silky smooth and shiny, but other than that it’s got to be dry shampoo! The must have styling product for lazy girls! My favourite brands are Batiste and CoLab. I’ve got a couple of Oribe dry shampoo sample bottles, which I also love, but they’re a lot more expensive too so don’t buy them!

Sunbathing or fake tan?
To be entirely honest, neither. I don’t like lying in the sun for too long because of sun damage to my skin. My Auntie died from skin cancer a few years ago, so I try not to spend too long sunbathing because of y increased risk to melanoma. In the past, I’ve opted for fake tan, but I tend to just keep it natural. I actually like my pale skin.

Favourite summer nail polish?
Oh I don’t know! I have so many shades I can’t keep track! I love colours that look great with sun-kissed skin and beach hair, such as corals, blues and greens.

Any Summer Traditions?
I like to try and get a holiday away, either abroad or in this country. Other than that, plenty of day trips away, long summer walks and some cheeky swimming trips here and there (I don’t live too far from a Lido, so there’s no excuse!!)

Favourite Summer scent?
Pineapple and coconut smell amazing around the summer time, and I love the smell of sun cream too!

Favourite BBQ food?
It has to be a good old cheeseburger!

What’s your favourite summer-proof product?
It would have to be Rimmel Stay matte powder and a decent primer! Because I have oily combination skin, and we all get a little sweaty in the summer sun, so these products are an absolute must!  I don’t like to wear too heavy a foundation – I tend to prefer a tinted moisturiser or CC cream instead – so I try and keep it light.

Any Summer Vacation plans this year?
Yes – me and my Husband are taking my Son to Devon this year for his first proper holiday that he’ll be able to enjoy, and just in case the British Summertime weather strikes we’re all off to Ibiza in October, this time with my family too. I’m a little nervous because it’s the first time I’d have taken a child under two on the plane, so I’m looking for any tips about keeping a child occupied for 2 and a half hours!!

That’s all for today’s post! I hope you liked it! Please feel free to complete the tag, and let me know your links so I can read them.
