I realise that this is an odd post considering my recent “I hate summer” post, but occasionally I do have a fit of whimsy and decide to brave the outside world. And as long as I feel prepared, I’m pretty okay with being outdoors. So here are the essentials I always carry in my bag over the summer:
Sunglasses – I picked these beauts up in H&M a few months ago, being optimistic lols, and I absolutely love them. I always keep them in my bag, ya know, just in case of sunshine.
Wrap – Granted it’s black, but it’s so soft and lightweight that it’s easy to roll up and pop in my bag for those evenings when it starts to get a bit chilly and you’re still on the beach or in the beer garden.
Batiste Frizz Tamer* – I got this bad boy in my Blogosphere Magazine goody bag a couple of weeks ago and I already love it. The humidity plays havoc with my locks; think Monica from Friends in the episode they go to Barbados, so this is perfect to keep my hair in check! Because cornrows and shells are a no-no.
Suncream – This is an absolute essential item I always have in my bag throughout summer. I have a habit of deciding to potter in the garden, because I’m actually about 70, and before I know it I’ve been out there 3 hours and my neck is Re to the Ed. It’s a Factor 50 child’s one and it smells like ice cream. Win.
Eau Thermale Spring Water*– I get really hot, especially on public transport, so I carry this dinky little can around with me and spray it on my face to cool down. This is my summer saviour!
The gorgeous bag* is from LYDC and is plenty big enough to carry all my summer essentials and the everyday bits and bobs I need! You can get 10% off your own bag at lydc.co.uk with my discount code Closingwinter2017
