Heatwave essentials

Recently in the UK we have been experiencing something extremely rare for a quite a few weeks or months now and everyone is basically unprepared. You guessed it, it’s the warmer weather!! This weeks post is dedicated to my essentials in the sun and what I’ve been loving lately!

First things first, the best and only drink to get you through the heatwave is Fanta Lemon, honestly if I could only drink one thing for the rest of my life that would be it!! It’s so refreshing and I’m just in love, if you haven’t tried it yet, YOU HAVE TO.

Another thing I love in the summertime is reading, if you’re a student like me you’ll probably have a lot of free time and everyone should definitely find a good book! I was into reading at the beginning of summer but I have recently got out of the habit, if you know of any juicy books let me know!!

Some products, clothing and accessories I’ve been loving in the sun are listed below!

Runner shorts – Topshop, ASOS, PLT, New Look  – I LOVE runner shorts for lounging and when I’m having a more casual day. I get most of mine from Primark but you can get them in most clothing stores, including the ones I have linked!

Sliders – JD Sports, Foot Asylum, Vans – I’m partial to the slider trend, I wear them in all weathers, they’re so easy to throw on when you can’t be bothered LMAO. I have the CK ones linked under Foot Asylum but I’m loving the Vans ones! Obviously because they’re checkerboard…

The Fox Tan Tanning Mist – PLT, Superdrug – I have been loving this tanning mist lately. I do use suncream as well though!! The Fox Tan tans me quicker than just wearing suncream but you do have to be careful not to burn if you have fair skin! There’s a lot of misconception about suncreams, so read this to learn what the SPF number means and what UVA, UVB and UVC rays are!

Sunglasses – PLT, Topshop, H&M – Sunglasses are a must-have when it’s sunny, I love a few different styles and have linked a few I’ve found that are similar to ones I already have. Also, Primark do fab sunglasses for literally under £5, but if you’re looking for better eye protection I’d look at Topshop, they have some amazing styles as well as still being affordable!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray – Beauty Bay – By now everyone should know this is my favourite facial spray and it’s even more refreshing in the summertime when the warmer weather hits. I recommend this facial spray to everyone and you should definitely have it in your skincare routine!

Chilly’s Bottle – Chilly’s – I love my Chilly’s bottle, especially in warmer weather as it really does keep cold drinks cold even if it’s in direct sunlight! These type of bottles are perfect for all year round as they keep warm drinks warm as well, but during the summer I love a ice cold drink and Chilly’s bottles are amazing!

Lipbalm – Nivea Essential Care – If you know me you’ll know how obsessed I am with lipbalm. People use these the most in the colder months but if you’re out in the sun a lot I do think it can make your lips dry as well as your skin. My favourite lipbalm is linked but I do love the Bioderma one also.
