Summer for me is all about those fruity scents, warm browns on the eyes and pops of colour on the cheeks. Including a summer fashion staple thrown in, I have rounded up five things I’ve been loving.
Pia Rossini Marina Tote* | £69.00
How summer perfect is this handbag? I find a good beach bag is essential during summer, especially if you’re going abroad. I’m quite far gone in my pregnancy now so it’s safe to say I have not been or will be going on holiday this summer, but I am still in love with this bag and will get so much use out of it as it’s the perfect size. I have to have the biggest handbag possible, I always find so much to fill them with! Anyway this has come in as the ultimate perfect summer bag for me, I find it a great size for going shopping with and it’s going to be such a good sized bag for fitting in all my baby change essentials too! The stripes are a gorgeous touch and the handbag itself is such good quality, you get what you pay for. I can see this lasting me years and years, and it’s going to come in so handy for next summer too, when I want to take my little one to the beach and need to take all sorts with me. If you want to get your hands on this for next summer, it will be available from September onwards so keep a look out!
I’m not a fan of grapefruits whatsoever, in fact I hate them. But this body mist is absolutely gorgeous, I’m so obsessed with the scent, especially during summer! It’s so fruity yet zingy at the same time, so it’s not too sweet if sweet scents aren’t your thing. It just smells so fresh too, like you honestly cannot beat this scent during summer. If you haven’t tried it before, I really recommend going into The Body Shop to test it out! These bottles also last such a long time, one or two spritz and you’re good to go, the scent lasts all day. You can also get it as a perfume, but I don’t see much difference between the two and this bottle is a lot larger 🙂
I think The Body Shop have stopped selling this and I don’t know why, the scent is so good! If you like fruity scents in summer like I do then it’s just the perfect perfume to use. It’s really fruity and sweet which are my two favourite types of perfumes anyway, and mixed together, the smell is just to die for. If you can find this in your local body shop then I highly recommend it, otherwise the strawberry one is also nice. I really hope they bring this back though as it’s my fave!
Sleek Blush in Rose Gold | £4.99
I picked this up recently on the hunt for the perfect summer blush, and this is it. I mean just look at that swatch, how beautiful?! It’s an absolute steal for £4.99 and I don’t know how I haven’t got my hands on this sooner! It’s such a gorgeous shade of pink with a tiny hint of peach to it, full of specks of golden shimmer. It adds the perfect pop of colour to your cheeks whilst giving you a subtle summer glow – what could be better than that? I’ve also heard this blush is a dupe for the famous NARS Orgasm blush, which I actually don’t have but have been wanting to try for the longest time. So I guess I don’t need to anymore as I’ll just stick with this one, it’s far more affordable and I’m just in love with it.
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette | £18.00
I’ve mentioned this palette on my blog a couple of times now, it’s got to be one of my favourites. I haven’t swatched it as I’ve swatched it before so I didn’t see the point, but I just think it’s such a summer perfect palette. All the warm tones and the mix of bronze and golden shades just make it my ideal palette for an easy going summer eye makeup look. It’s another steal at only £18 for all these gorgeous, highly pigmented shades and I really recommend picking it up if you haven’t already.
