From spicy to fresh florals, whatever your favourite scent is, it can make you feel far more confident in the sticky hot weather. Groupon’s offers on perfume also make it far more affordable to treat yourself to a new bottle of your favourite or to try a new one.




Whether you are going on holiday or enjoying the sun in the back garden, a bikini is a must, especially with the amazing weather we are having at the moment. I was gifted a bikini from UK Swimwear which I absolutely love. It is inspired by the 60’s and carries the mix of flower power, abstract and psychedelic perfectly. What I really like is there is a detachable strap that can take it from bandeau for when I am sunbathing to halter neck when I want some more support on walks.

Sun cream

I use an unscented sensitive sun cream for my body and for my face I use SunSense Daily Face SPF50 which is a light cream with an oil-free base, it’s tinted for a sheer matte finish and applies really well. It also contains Vitamin E to improve the appearance of age spots, makes fine lines and wrinkles look smoother and improves skin’s elasticity.

Nail colour

I love using bright colours on my nails in Summer and playing around with nail art. I have just trained to be a Bio Sculpture nail technician. Bio Sculpture gels are 100% medical grade gel that have vitamin treatments under the gels making them a healthy gel colour that lasts up to 3 weeks. They are also animal cruelty free and vegan

Sun hat

I’m not a fan of sun glasses, I have never found a pair that suits me but in Summer I do need some extra protection for my eyes against the suns rays and the brightness so I use a sun hat. As well as protecting your eyes and face, it also protects your hair which often we forget to think about.

Comfortable sandals

I adore my Crocs, I have had 2 pairs of them and love the colours they come in. They have soft, flexible Gemlite™straps and the Iconic Crocs Comfort™: original Croslite™ foam cushion. I love them that much that I have bought Lucas a pair and also my Dad a pair for his birthday.




I love Summer for experimenting with jewellery and it’s an easy way to change up basic pieces in your wardrobe. Boho Box have an incredible selection of bohemian jewellery including feathers, crystals and natural stones
