I hope the sun is shining just as much as it is here! These summer months fly past way too quickly for my liking so to celebrate their existance I am doing this Summer Tag. I found it on The Emerald Dove's Blog and had to give it a go!
1. What's your favourite thing about Summer?
I really like my summer lifestyle. I do a lot more exercise, get up earlier and eat healthier. I'm always craving salads and fruit in the hot months. It's so much easier to be sociable in summer- you can meet up with friends at a park or have a BBQ.
2. Do you have a favourite Summer drink?
My boyfriend makes a lovely fruity non-alcoholic cocktail that is super refreshing. It's a mix of lemonade, squash, fruit juice and ice cubes (and a cocktail umbrella if you're lucky).
3. Is there a location you like to go to each Summer?
I like to try and get to a quaint coastal town somewhere in England. I've been lucky enough to already have a trip to Brighton and am at Uni in Portsmouth so that's two places ticked off the list! With the boyfriend down in Somerset, hopefully I'll be on a few day trips to Devon and Dorset.
4. Favourite makeup look for Summer?
I'll either wear a concealer or bb cream and a bit if powder and bronzer for the face. I don't bother with anything heavy as it'll just sweat off in the heat and feel disgusting! I've been using a bit of bronzer as eye shadow recently and then just wearing brown eye liner and black mascara. I complete this natural look with a moisturising lip balm that has SPF in it :)
5. Dresses or skirts?
I think dresses suit me more than skirts. I keep adding to my summer dress wardrobe- check out Primark for some cheap and stylish £5 dresses!
6. Sandals or ballet pumps?
My feet don't agree with any shoes- they will all rub or cut them no matter what (woe is me!!) I prefer the look of sandals and there are so many cute ones around at the moment!
7. Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for Summer?
I always prefer the way my hair looks down but sometimes it gets way too hot with my long hair on my neck and back! Recently I've been wearing it as a side fishplait or a top knot because the humidity has made my hair crazy and unmanageable.
8. Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
For me, you can't go wrong with smokey eyes but in this weather I've been keeping my eyes quite neutral and opting for a more coral bright lip if I'm making the effort!
9. Favourite perfume for Summer?
I'm actually looking for a new fragrance to try out as most of mine are running low. I love a sweet fruity scent. Any recommendations?
10. Last but not least, favourite music for Summer?
I am constantly listening to a spottily playlist called Happy Hipster. It has some really laid back and summery tunes that lift my mood- very easy listening :)
Writing this post has really made me realise how much I love summer! Let me know if you decided to do this tag and leave your lovely links below.
