I sorta, maybe, could be on holiday enjoying cocktails and walking along the beach as we speak…or rather as you read. So, being the good person I am (?) I thought I would share some of my must have items for a holiday away in the sun…
A good bikini: Not just one, but a dozen bikinis are essential. That said, we always have a favourite don’t we? Whether it be the most flattering or the prettiest pattern. My favourite at the moment is this rather funky Matthew Williamson number, called the Blue Ikat bikini. There’s a range of different mix and match tops and bottoms which you can find here, I’ve read some good review about SOCFashion here. But I have the triangle bikini top which ties at the front and has a racer style back, whilst the bottoms are the cutout side bikini bottoms which speak for themselves really.
Some cute shoes: These floral sheer fabric espadrilles are just cheapy ones from Primark but aren’t they so pretty? It also helps that they’re super comfortable and were just £7!
A trustworthy deodorant: I’ve always been a Dove girl at heart, whether it be shampoo, moisturiser or their good ol’ deodorant, I just can’t fault them. The Dove Maximum Protection Go Fresh Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Deodorant Cream is incredibly gentle on your underarms, smells wonderful and keeps me feeling dry and fresh all day long. What more could you want?
Suncream for the face: I’m super fussy with my facial suncream. I was a big fan of Ren’s one before they discontinued it and then I found this, the Apivita Face Cream For Sensitive Skin SPF 50+. It’s extremely gentle and doesn’t cause a single spot (no, not one!), is non-greasy but adds just the right amount of moisture to keep your skin hydrated and my face doesn’t look like a lobster my the end of the day, score!
Easy peasy body lotion: I cannot get enough of the Vaseline Spray & Go Cocoa Body Moisturiser, it smells delicious, dries faster than any other body moisturiser making it easy to whip on your jeans straight after smothering this all over and it’s surprisingly moisturising. Perfect.
What are your must-have’s for your summer holiday?
