My summer beauty must haves

Now the sun appears to be staying in place for once, i thought that i would share my favourite summer beauty must haves.

If you are anything like me and are typically British aka: pastey white you will understand my need for fake tan. I am also really rubbish at applying fake tan, so Instead I use a gradual tan moisturiser instead. I have tried countless different ones and this one is by far my favourite. It smells so nice and leaves my skin feeling so soft.

I also use Sally Hansen airbrush legs. If you haven’t tried it, you have to. It is so amazing. It’s a bit like foundation for your legs is the only way to describe it. Basically you have to try it. Oh and it smells a bit like doughnuts.

I think that the perfect combo with a nice tan is a deep red nail varnish. I bought this one the other day. It’s from the Barry M gelly range. It’s super duper shiny and the colour goes with everything.

A good daily moisturiser is key anytime of year but even more so in the summer. I have heard so many great things about Nivea but haven’t really ever tried many of their products but this is perfect in my skin. My skin has felt so soft and it has even helped keep it clear and blemish free. It’s such a good staple for everyday and is inexpensive you should definitely try it .

The sun has finally got his hat on…hip hip hip hooray. Sorry couldn’t help myself. I am feeling so jolly now the sun is out, it generally just makes things so much better doesn’t it?!
I was shocked yesterday that I wasn’t for once getting caught in the rain without an umbrella (that has become a very regular occurrence) no, no this time I was caught without my trusty sunglasses.
Which you might think to be not that shocking, but they are usually a permanent fixture on my face, come rain, shine and sometimes complete darkness.
My favourite pair at the moment have to be my audrey cats eye ones from whistles, but I stumbled on these beauties in TopShop and had to snap them up.
I have been looking for some black circular retro style ones for suuuch a long time now.
It always seemed that every time I tried some I would look either like a bug that had not yet been discovered, or like I was wearing some weird swimming goggles. But I have to say, I loved these from the minute I saw them even if I do still look vaguely like a bug wearing swimming goggles?
