Pre-Summer Favourites

With last weeks mini heatwave I'm now very much excited for Summer! I actually think in the UK we have quite a good Summer. Yes it rains, but we do get quite a good few weeks of warmth each year and I always try to make the most of it. 

All these items may be a little premature but last week I enjoyed them all and I know I will be using them all throughout summer. Also as I have a few accessories I thought I'd share them with you now whilst they are still 'new in' and in stock.

ASOS Jazzlyn Espadrilles (£12.00 ASOS here
So these amazing espadrilles are certainly premature with the now rain weather however I couldn't resist them and I have been using them as house slippers for the time being. I've never worn espadrilles before due to them looking uncomfortable with the hard base but these really are good to walk in. The mixed metallic finish really looks good and looks even brighter when the suns out. Perfect with jeans or for holidays... or even as I'm currently wearing them; as fancy slippers around the house! Side note - I did have to go up a size in these.

Kiko Glowing Pearl Cushion Highlighter (£8.90 Kiko in-store) 
Come Spring I'm all about that glowey look and this cream highlighter is a joy to use and certainly gives a glow. I have more than enough powder highlighters so this soft cushion illuminating pen is fun to use and applies just the right amount of product on the cheekbones. The pen comes in 2 shades both of which are lovely and not glittery. Highly recommend this highlighter if you are shopping in Kiko any time soon.  


ASOS Heart Pom Pom Key Ring (£8.00 ASOS here
ASOS always get it spot on for summer accessories and this current pom pom key ring is just one of them. This already has been on my everyday handbag but I intend to switch it over to a saddle bag for summer and then a beach bag for my holidays. Really lovely detail and good quality!

This Works Energy Bank Sun Flash (£28.00 ASOS here
On to something that's been giving my pale skin a bit of colour without the effort and often streaks on a fake tan. This is basically a concentrated matte liquid bronzer that adds a bit of colour to the face and body. I like to apply this directly to a freshly moisturised face under my foundation to give a bit of a glow and then a touch on the outside of my face and cheekbones. You can also mix a few pumps with your favourite moisturiser to give a nice glow over the body, perfect for whiter than white legs! This blends well and goes have a zingy wake-up effect feel to it. Of course when summer is fully here I will be using fake tan (I have a few nice ones from Bondi Sands and Fake Bake) but for now this is doing the job.

Bath & Body Works Copacabana Coconut Anti-Bac Gel (£1.99 eBay here)
Anti-bacterial gel is a must for me so I like to have a few for different handbags. I do really rate the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush ant-bac gel with it's zingy lime scent but this one by B&BW's just tops it as the scent reminds me of holiday cocktails, plus I love the packaging. For a US imported product this is super cheap and the listing contains so many more scents to pick from. I'm sure I will be picking up a few different ones to try out.

Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Body Cream (£19.50 Look Fantastic here)
A good body cream (or 10!) in the Summer months is a must for me especially when tanning as it keeps my tan streak-free and my skin feeling hydrated and supple. This beautifully packaging body moisturiser is from Rituals, a brand I've always been fond of for body care and it has a wonderful light scent of rice milk and cherry blossom. This is more of a treat purchase due to the price but it does an amazing job at hydrating the skin and 220ml tub is larger than the standard Ritual body moisturiser.

I also couldn't forget to mention my lovely toiletry bag from Eco Beauty that I picked up in Tk Maxx recently. It was only £7.99 and has enough room for my everyday makeup and includes a clear plastic liner inside - genius. TK Maxx really do have some lovely makeup/toiletry bags in at the moment perfect for if you are going on holiday this summer. 

Hope you've enjoyed this summery post! 

Fee xo.
