Since launching the blog, one of my most highly viewed posts has been my ‘Favorite Things’ (Oprah taught me well.) Since I couldn't wait till next Christmas to do a second round of my favorite things I have put together another list with some summer fun.
As it is finally June the sunny days are coming more and more, and I even have a little tan on my pale skin, thanks to the classic London weather for making me the palest I’ve ever been in my life. With the warm weather comes dewy makeup look, thongs – both in the footwear and swimwear sense, and a whole ton of pretty things. Here is what I’ll be wearing and having with me all summer long. Remember to click on any of the pictures to shop!
Summer glow is probably the most desired beauty look of the season and while tanned skin stepping out of a glistening ocean is the most natural way to get it, we can't all summer in the South of France.
That's where our good friend from Beverly Hills, Anastasia, steps in. I know spending bank on glitter seems a bit out there but when you get your highlighter right you feel like a sun kissed fairy.
I wear the "That Glow" kit everyday, mixing and matching from 'starburst' to 'dripping in gold' depending on just how sparkly I need to be for the occasion.
This cute style has been transformed from Miley Cyrus's space buns to 'it girls' on-the-go easy hairstyle. Depending on how tight you make them or if there’s one, two, or even three, changes how dressy or casual they can be. I personally wear the look almost everyday now, and have found it to be my new ponytail – just as practical and a bit more fun.
I recommend using a couple of bobby pins instead of a hair tie, if you're not planning to be dancing or jeep-riding while wearing it, as they make the bun look cleaner and a bit closer to your head.
Swimsuits are one of the most fun parts of summer. All year my Instgram feed is full of pictures from paradise with girls in bikinis and when the Canadian sun finally comes out you know I’m stocking up on my swimsuits.
Right now I am really loving the clean lines and colours we’re seeing in swimsuits. Nude and grey tones make suits less obviously sexy but are more flattering than frills and flowers. My personal favorite brand at the moment is Myra Swim, with high cut bottoms and fabrics that feel like silk I’d rather wear it than normal clothes any day.
Every Matte Lippy I Can Get My Hands On
Over the past few months my matte lipstick obsession has gotten a tad out of hand. I have the updates from Sephora and Kylie emailing me whenever one of my dream mattes comes in stock. Every time I get a delivery from Anastasia or any other of the top matte makers I remember exactly why I am so obsessed with the products.
Because of this obsession I couldn’t choose just one matte lipstick to add to the list. Therefore I have a list of my favorite colours from all my favorite brands.
I know you must be thinking that this girl is extremely behind on social media if she's only just discovered Pinterest. I've known it and scrolled through the pretty pictures for years now but I am new to having my own Pinterest page for the blog. I'll be putting all my posts and other fun pictures up, as a well as other photos and blogs that give me inspiration.
