Summer Essentials #1

I am so excited for summer this year it feels like it's taken ages to come around, but being in England a heatwave can appear from no where and you have to be prepared, I've made a list of all the things I love and that will help you through your summer months.

Flannel Hats -
I am obsessed with hats at the moment and so excited that everywhere is now selling them, nothing beats wearing a cute hat to accessorise your outfit and it will also help to protect your hair and scalp from drying out or getting burn't in strong UV rays. Boohoo have some amazing hats in right now and at such a great price so go check them out!

St Moriz -
For those of you who don't like to sit out in the sun too much, or even when you do you never seem to tan, I have found the perfect solution. I have never been a huge fan of fake tan, I find it can smell a lot and leave you streaky/wash off quickly, however, St Moriz does none of those, in fact it is by far the best tanning product I have ever used. They do a a rage of colour Fair-Medium-Dark but they also have a new range which is a gradual tanning product, the longer you leave it on, the darker it goes.
I would 100% recommend it as it doesn't go streaky and it lasts ages! I will have a review post going up in the near future so show you my before and after pictures.

Fruit Infuser Water Bottle -
I LOVE THESE. I cannot express how much they have made a difference in my life, not only because I don't eat fruit on it's own for many reasons but 1 being I don't like the texture, but I also hate the taste of water, with my infuser I get to endure both at the same time. It's so quick and easy and extremely healthy for you. All you have to do it;
Cut up your favourite fruit
Put them in the infuser container and fill the bottle with water, then shake.
Leave it in the fridge for about an hour so it's cold and refreshing, ready to hydrate you on a hot day!
You can get them here on Amazon for such a great price too.

Comfy Sweatpants/Joggers -
If I'm honest I need these all year round, but for the summer I love wearing them in the evening or just around the house when you want to lounge about and not have tight clothes stuck to you. I hate having to do housework or my shopping when it's super hot and I'm wearing denim shorts because I still get overheated! Most fashion stores such as Primark, New Look etc will have some nice plain ones, but I've also found some crazy/funky ones at MrGuGu&MissGo the ones in the link are my favourite! So cute and perfect for summer.

Heat Protection For Hair -
An amazing product if you're going to be outside in the sun all day and you're not wearing a hat, heat protection will help prevent damage from the sun, and stop your hair from drying out, becoming weak, frizzy and lifeless. Instead your hair will stay hydrated and protected all day long. People never think to use heat protection because of the sun, but it can actually do just as much damage as when using a hair dryer and straightens so always carry a small bottle around with you!

Summer Playlist -
I don't know if many of you do this or if it's super popular but I always make myself a summer playlist as wherever I go I'm always listening to music, I usually have a daytime playlist and a chilled night time one too! If you would like to see what they are I will do I separate post soon.

Beach Bag -
I always have a separate bag for when I'm going to the beach because I know it's probably going to end up with sand in it. I have looked around and found the cutest bag from Topshop they have a great range at the moment as well as other stores such as Asos and it's perfect to go with your favourite summer outfits and can fit all your summer essentials inside!

So that is the first part of my summer essentials, I will be doing a post for this every 2 weeks maybe so I can show you all the goodies I find to help me through the summer months.
