Summer Essentials

Hello my fellow hopefuls. I think a common characteristic in english folk is a constant hope for nice weather in those supposidly "summer" months of June, July and August. If our wishes do come true - we need to make sure that we welcome the weather with open arms so that it doesn't leave us too quickly. Therefore, we need to be prepared for a sunny summer!

In order to be ready we need to make sure we have our summer essentials. While sitting in the sun, i had a long think as to what these really are. Some of the things i came up with were obvious yet very important and some things i had to think for a little longer to come up. Ill now stop rambling and share with you all what i believe are summer essentials.

Lets start with the obvious:

Sun Cream!
This as obvious as it make seem to you, is something that some people forget to put on in order to get that tan that we all desire. But i cant begin to stress how important this is! Sun cream helps protect your skin from the very harmful UV rays that the sun emits. You all want that tan but protecting your skin should be more important and you can all still get a tan through wearing sun cream, it just stops you getting burnt. Which is no fun.

Now then in england is may not get as hot as in other places around the globe, and so you can afford to for a little while really work on that tan. By using tanning oil it helps you tan... It does what is says on the tin hahaaa. It is good but use it sparingly and not constantly, you still need your sun cream.

Favourite Beauty Products of June

Hey everyone, today I was looking through all my makeup and hair products and thought 'I have used a lot of different products this month, maybe I should do a monthly favourites for you.' So here I am.

The month of June has been an off and on month of summer.  What I mean by that is that the weather has been sunny,  then rainy, then stormy, then like a heat wave again.  Its all very retarded and messed up.  But that's english weather for you! So I have used some summer colours and then some winters colours for both cheeks and lips, I have also been having my hair curly a lot recently because I really love that look for summer, it just gives a nice boho, relaxed, laid back style - which I like for summer.

I am going to stop rambling and get into what my favourite beauty products have been this month (with a few random items as well)

Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads (£5.39)

This is my first favourite for the month of June.  So basically the story behind this product is - I had it ages ago when I was younger and when I first started getting into beauty and makeup and I thought it would be good to start off with (it wasn't very expensive and at the time lots of magazines were raving about it).  And then this month I have been traveling a lot and seeing family and so I wanted an easy cleanser to take with me, also I have been REALLY lazy with my skincare routine, and so I remembered these pads and went to the shops to get them. These pads are awesome and have no hassle, you just take your makeup off then take a pad wipe it across your face and it removes any excess dirt or makeup you have left on your skin.  

And so to sum it all off, I have been loving these pads, I actually think they have really helped my skin aswell and are so easy to just wipe over your face and your done. Simples.
