“…Summer days drifting away to uh oh those summer nights “
Summer is back baby and you best believe that I am going to be living out my Danny and Sandy dreams at the beach this year! Ok, so maybe not exactly the same as they did – you know, with the whole fleeting highschool romance and all – but i’m totally going to be singing Summer Nights all day erryday haha and that’s pretty much the same right?!
Anyway, like I said before Summer is here and i’m so ready to go a little crazy in the sun, and to get into the spirit of it all I have decided to share with you babes a little roundup of my summer essentials!
Protecting your skin from the harsh rays of the sun is imperitive for your skins health and your safety, especially if you are an Aussie babe like me with an actual hole in the ozone layer making it extra damaging haha so just as you would protect your body you need to protect your face. There are soooo many cosmetic brands out there that are now selling face sunscreens like Benefit, Tarte and Mecca just to name a few.
Wide Brimmed Floppy Hat
If a wide brimmed floppy hat does not scream ‘OMG IT’S FINALLY FREAKING SUMMER!’ to you then you are just outright lying to yourself! I am in loveeeeeeee with the slogan floppy hats that have been all over our instagram feeds of late!
Another totes obvs summer essential to protect your eyes and add style points yada yada yadaa. Cat eyes, round lenses and aviator styles are always a hit but my biggest tip is to forget what’s trending and to see what shape matches your face best. I am head over heels in love with the El Roy Eyewear Warren Sunglasses (check out the freaking cute pearl detailing!) and ASOS have some cute specs too!
Sandals are a must for summer babe! They’re just so easy to chuck on and can work with pretty much any outfit combo this season.
I tend to switch up my skincare products to suit the seasons and the conditions of my skin, and summer is no different. Since I tend to wear less makeup in the warmer months yet sweat more (Probs TMI but I’ve got to keep it real with you guys) I like to go for a really lightweight foaming cleanser, like my Estelle & Thild Bio-cleanse Multi-action cleanser which is perfect for summer! I have a cheeky lil’ review here if you want to learn more about this cleanser.
Cute Beach Bag
Obvs a cute beach bag is needed to fit all of my essentials in! I L O V E either the standard nautical striped beach bags or ones with cute little slogans on them to make it a little extra!
These are a few of my must haves for the summer months, what are yours?!
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx.
