It definitely feels like summer now that it is actually hot and sunny instead of being cloudy all the time. For this post I decided to put together some of my favourite things which I think are essentials for summer. Also I am very sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I have been having a break from blogging and just haven't been feeling it recently, but I am back now!

First thing of course are some sunglasses! Sunglasses are a definite must-have in summer, not only do they protect your eyes but they also just add to an outfit! Mine are from Primark, so they are totally affordable. They are round with gold detailing on it which I love. Next is a Body Spray, I have chosen one from Victoria Secret in the scent Pure Daydream. It is such a fruity scent which is really appropriate for summer and will make you smell great! I have also included a nail varnish which is the Barry M Gelly nail varnish in Greenberry. The bright turquoise will look so lovely on nails in summer, especially with a tan and I am definitely going to be wearing this on my nails this year!

On to all the makeup essentials now. Firstly I have obviously included a highlighter as isn't glowy skin always a summer trend? I'm pretty sure every year glowing skin is a must have for summer! So I have chosen the Benefit Sun Beam as this is more of a bronzey highlighter compared to High Beam. I have also included a powder in my essentials as your skin might get a bit oily in the summer so a matte powder is always handy! The last two things are both pink lipsticks because I really like wearing more brighter colours on my lips in summer. So the ones I have chosen are the Bourjois Colour Boos in Peach on the Beach and the Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart.

So those are all my summer essentials for this year. I hope you enjoyed this post and sorry for not posting much recently. Thanks for reading!

  2. Really love the shape of those sunglasses! I think glowy skin is always such a nice look, I've definitely started to fall in love with highlighters lately. My summer essentials are: hydrating base, brown eyeliner, red blush & sheer lipsticks!
