Summer Staples

Right now I'm blogging from the garden. It is a beautiful day and if the sun is out, I'm going to be outside enjoying it. So I thought I'd put together a few summer staples that have been in my bag and ready for any little appearances of summer in England. With my coconut oil and hand wipes at the ready, let's delve in!

Possibly my favourite after sun lotion I've ever tried is the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration after sun, it has a beautiful fruity smell and is lovely to apply after tanning, though it wouldn't be a great recommendation if you prefer a cooling feeling. This is all about that tropical, holiday smell it has.  I've also had my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour facial sun screen in my bag all this month. Boasting factor 50, it was a pretty safe buy (especially as I burn so easily) and while it is a great sun screen it can feel a little sticky to apply. That being said, I've yet to find another facial sun screen that is as effective as this one, so it will be staying a staple for the rest of this summer.

Boater hats and big sunglasses? Of course! As a person who sports a dashing squint whenever the sun appears from the clouds, a good pair of sunglasses are always a necessity. At the moment I've been wearing a beautiful pair of Prada tortoise shell ones, though I usually throw a cheaper pair in my bag as a spare.
