I ♥ Summer Tag

1. Favorite bronzer for summer?

The bronzer that I use all year round is the Rimmel Sunshimmer Bronzer in Light Matte because I'm pale and it creates a really natural look on the face. Usually, I use it to contour, but in the summer when I have a tan I will brush it over the face for definition.

2. You're relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on? (Favorite summer drink)

Fanta have brought out a new mango and passionfruit flavour. It comes in purple packaging and it tastes really tropical and gorgeous. But to be honest, I have been know to be soaking up the sun in 30 degree heat and still be drinking a cup of tea, so if I was on a tropical island that would probably be what I would drink! 

3. Favorite summer lip product?

As I said in my top summer lip products post I really love the Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Fruiti so I will say that, but you have to be really careful that you don't leave it in the sun or it will melt, and that wouldn't be great! 

4. Pool or Beach?

I do love a swimming pool but the beach just has to win. Just lying on a sun-bed, soaking up the sun, having a picnic and eating sand by accident, being with your family, bliss! Also, where I go on holiday, on the beach there are two ladies that go up and down giving massages which are amazing!    

5. Summer = crazy hair! What's your must-have styling product?

I use the John Frieda Full Repair Flyaway Tamer that I reviewed here to tame any frizz or flyaway's down.

6. Sun bathing or fake tan?

I want to say fake tan but I'm completely hopeless at applying it without streaks! I am attempting to improve my skills by watching Youtube videos, and hopefully when I'm not to embarrassed to take a photo of the results I will do a review on some products that I've tried.

7. Favorite summer nail polish?

I love Barry M nail paints and one that screams summer to me is block orange as it is bright and beautiful and would look great next to a tan.

8. Any summer traditions?

As soon as the weather hits about 20 degrees my Dad sparks up the barbecue. I think we have had about 4 or 5 in the last week alone!

9. Favorite summer scent?

I'm not really a perfume person and certain scents give me headaches so I tend to just give myself a spritz of body spray before I go out, and my favourite summer one is hawaiian shores body mist from Avon which I think has been discontinued.

10. Favorite BBQ food?

You can't  make me choose! I like all barbecue food equally, I'm getting hungry thinking about it. Right now I'm loving the Magnum limited edition 'first kiss' crème brûlée flavour ice cream, it's gorgeous and you need to try it!

11. What's your favorite summer-proof product?

I think that in the summer you need to make sure that your makeup doesn't melt off your face and investing in a primer is one way you can avoid this. One that I have been using recently is the Nivea daily essentials express hydration primer because your makeup sits nicely on top, making it last longer, also the primer is really cooling when you apply it.

12. Any summer vacation plans this year? No plans? Tell us about your dream summer trip!

Unfortunately I am not going away this year, but next year me and my friends are going on a girls holiday to celebrate the end of our A-levels. We haven't made any plans yet but hopefully we will be having a pow-wow soon to talk about ideas, so exciting!

I tag one of my best friends Emma who has also just started a blog called
