Summer Staples

"Life isn't about getting and having, Its about giving and being."- Kevin Kruse

For a change in England the last few weeks have been scorching and i'm absolutely loving it. Although i'm sat in a muggy office all day through out the week, i like to make sure i make the most of it on my free days. This years antics have included a few beer gardens and lazy sun lounging. Summer is one of my favorite seasons, the sunshine, the positive attitude, the socializing and the summer clothing. But  i always like to have a few staple summer pieces , a few of mine include: 

a good pair of sunglasses, which might i add, i have quite an obsession with purchasing - My sunglasses are from eBay from a china company for about £1.50 (BARGAIN) and the case from River Island for £5.00
These ones are a circle cat eye effect with leopardy print frame and are really on trend at the minute i love how they look on the face.

 A comfy pair of jelly shoes- mine are from ASOS for around the £10 mark
These are one of the most comfiest pair of summer sandals i own, and as it gets hot and sticky its always important to have some breathable shoes so your feet don't get too sweaty. These are perfect for that, and go with almost any outfit.

Some beautiful moisturising lip balms- mine below are a Soap and Glory Smooch operator- Boots, around £5.00 & an EOS balm in passion fruit - eBay about £6.00
I absolutely love the smell of the Smooch Operator, it has a lovely coconut scent and its easy and not sticky to apply. The EOS balm is more on the pricey side but again really moisturising on the lips and has a delicious passion fruit flavor.

Fresh summer scent- Avon Little Pink Dress- £15.00 (picture taken from Google)
 I always get asked what i am wearing when i wear this fragrance, its lovely and sweet and a perfect scent for summertime.

and finally a top summer tune.. this year i have chosen Mr. Probz- Waves as this will be the track i remember for summer 2014.

so please make sure you enjoy your summer with your summer staples, what are your must haves? and remember always apply your sun cream!
