The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming……(Singing it as I type) No I don’t mean Christmas I mean the summer holidays. It’s just around the corner and it will be time to get in the loft, grab your case and empty your wardrobe and chuck it all in. Slap some sun cream in your bag and head to the airport. (Not for everyone I know that – I get it)
I know thats what I shall be doing in July. Already the suitcase is out and I am slowly packing items already. Yes it’s early I know but I love packing! I am off to Sunny Florida in July ( I Hope it is anyway) and can’t wait.
Well this year I decided to purchase a brad new case for starters. Got a gorgeous bright striped case from the Myleene Klass range in TK Maxx. A little obsessed lately with that store it just sells the most unusual random pieces and you can get some good bargains too. My suitcase is large enough for me to bring myself lots of treats and purchases back from the states. This is always a bonus. In the case will definitely be the following thats for sure…..
Now this year I was contact by a company called UK Swimwear and was Sent a bikini to feature on my blog ( I was able to choose the style etc- obviously for my shape) I decided on a lovely bikini in the Gottex Profile sports range. Very simple black bikini with an amazonian feel to it. It is very supportive and has a racer back look. I shall be rapping the gladiator look! This is priced at £92 so it is on the higher priced end but the quality is very nice and I am thinking it will last a very long time and washes nice too. This could be seen as an investment.
Now for sunglasses, I always have to have several pairs with me incase I break or lose them. ( I get a bit clumsy at times ) . Im taking a couple of pairs with me again this year. These include my Ralph Lauren shades the hubby bought me a few years ago. I have just been *gifted a pair of HOOK LDN sunglasses which are so funky. Laura Whitmore was also spotted with these bad lads on too. (A bit of useless info for you) . Now these are from a cool website based in the North East called Red Hot Sunglasses. These guys stock a huge range from FCUK, Kurt Geiger, Karen Millen to Tom Ford, Rayban and Saint Laurent. They sometimes have offers and sales on too which is always a bonus.
Now this one is a must for everyone (USE AN SPF DAILY) especially on my face! It’s a proven fact that sun damage ages your skin. So with that in mind I tend to use a high factor on my face, so I use the Kihels ultra light UV defence Mineral sunscreen with SPF50 and PA +++. A product great for travelling which comes in a 50ml bottle. It has a universal tint to it and great for acne prone skin, this doesn’t clog the pores.
Now last but by no means least, sliders are a must for me especially with a touch of sparkle you jut can’t go wrong. I bought these in December ( I know a very random time of year to buy sliders) with a gift card I got off my nieces fro Christmas and I knew I needed holiday things. I bought these from Schuh for approx £20. These come in several colours but I loved how they seem to look different colours at different angles. blue/green. purple etc.
