The Summer Tag

It's been a while since I did a Tag and when I saw this one on Beans Beauty Blog I just had to take part - Summer is my favourite ever. With the weather being WON-DERFUL at the moment I took some time away from sitting in the garden all day (I wish) to fill out my answers...

What’s your favourite summer nail polish?
This is TOUGH! I love bright nails in the summer and there are some amazing neon shades about. I think a bright pink or coral looks lovely on tanned hands and toes. China Glaze have a good selection and The Models Own Polish for Tans range is great. Sun Hat and Shades being a couple of my favourites.

Favourite bronzer for Summer?
I have repurchased Benefit's Hoola time and time again. It was one of the first products I bought from Benefit and I haven't looked back. I have just tried the new Matt Illusion Bronzer from Bourjois which gives a great subtle glow so is perfect for daywear and a little bit more affordable!

You're relaxing in a hammock on a tropical beach.  What are you sipping on?
I like Pina Coladas (couldn't help but sing that one, could ya?!) But I don't drink alcohol a lot so anything icy and fruity goes down a treat!

Pool or Beach?
Definitely the beach. I spent all of my childhood Summers at our chalet by the beach and I loved every minute. I'd spend so much time walking along the beach or  swimming in the sea. The beach is my happy place.


Sun bathe or fake tan?
I love both. I am a complete sun chaser and I know it's bad but I do always wear SPF. I love the feel of the sun on my face and I get cold in the shade. I like to make the most of the warm weather while it's here so if it's a nice day there is no way I'm staying indoors.
Fake tan-wise I am loving Bondi Sands, Cocoa Brown and Lauren's Way at the moment.
Favourite Summer scent?
I am in the middle of a big debate with my bank balance and my heart (the heart says BUY BOOOOTH!) I am torn between buying Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess or Elie Saab's Resort. They are both so summery and lovely. -If anyone knows any dupes of these please let me know!

Favourite BBQ food?
It has to be Corn on the Cob. I always take it to BBQ's as it's something most don't think about and there's always more than enough meat. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a good burger but corn on the BBQ is delicious! 

What's your favourite summer accessory?
I basically live in my Topshop Wedges in the Summer. They are really comfortable and they go with everything.


What's the weather like where you live in the summer?
In the UK it can go either way. I remember Summers being gorgeous when I was younger but now it seems all over the place. I love when it's hot - the worst is when it's humid though.

What is your favourite thing about the summer?
The fact I don't have to wear a jacket. 9 times out of 10 a jacket ruins a good outfit! I always end up carrying it around anyway or leaving it somewhere so it just saves me the trouble!
What are your plans for summer vacation?
We've already been to Disneyland for our big holiday his year but we like to plan things as we go so who knows? We could end up with a mini break at the end of the Summer. 

Do you love Summer? I'd love to hear your answers, if you do the tag please send over the link or if you just want to do a couple just let me know your answers in the comments below!
