Summer Wishlist

Summer is finally here! I'd normally be out in the garden, sunbathing (and slowly turning a shade of lobster pink) but my stupid burnt foot is still sore, and can't go out in the sun yet. (I burnt my foot at work by pouring boiling water on it a week ago... don't try this at home). However, I'm looking forward SO much to the two holidays I'll be going on in August and September. I've got a list as long as my arm of bits and bobs I want to pick up for them, but here's just a few of them. If you have any summer essentials you think I should try, please let me know in the comments :)

As much as I love my Urban Decay Primer Potion, it's just too expensive for using every day throughout the summer. At about a tenth of the price, MUA's version has received so much praise.

I picked up the colour 'Blueberry' the other day and I love the shiny finish it gives, and the bright colours. I don't actually own a lilac polish, so this one is perfect!

3. Yankee Candle Ceramic Warmer // around £25-35
I think I first saw this on DollyBowBow's Youtube Channel. It's a 'tart' burner; you plug the burner into the wall and it heats the dish on the top, melting the scented tarts, and making your room smell lovely. I know it's not exactly a summer product, but you can get summery scented tarts (and winter/chistmas ones too!)

4. HandM Straw Hat // £6.99
The skin on my face burns faster than any part of me, so a summer hat is pretty much essential. A straw one always seems to look causual but stylish and goes with any summery outfit.

I've been wanting to get a LWD (little white dress) for ages, and I love the crochet style of this one.

Enjoy the sunshine!

  2. I've been thinking of trying the MUA primer!
    I need to try some of the summer Barry M Gelly shades. I have a dark green one and didn't like it but everyone is saying how lovely they are I feel like I need to try a summery one!
