35 days to go until summer vacation. Not that I’d be counting. But images like the one above make me fantasize of lazy days at the beach, where the only question bugging your mind is whether to have ice cream before or after dipping into the sea. 11 degrees C on an afternoon in June really should be against human rights.
Whilst sitting in my car yesterday (and trying to see threw the curtain of rain and the aggressively swishing wipers on the windscreen), I mentally started packing my bags.
Bikinis. A girl can never have enough bikinis. This year I opted for a pink and a petrol green one, both available at H&M for £3.99 per item.
Havaianas. The new slim line is all my feet could hope for.
Anti-allergic sun protection. This is the only product I have ever used over a longer period without breaking out in spots. Seriously. (Unfortunately, this is not a sponsored post, but if anybody at Institut Esthederm or Space NK feels like feeding my habit, go ahead!)
A hat. Even better against the sun than slapping on the cream! (the one I am wearing in the picture is from Marlene Birger’s SS10 collection, but you could try your luck here.)
Funky nail varnish. A dash of lipgloss. A bit of bronzer. The Paul & Joe limited edition Blue Horizon is to die for – it’s summer feeling in bottles. (Leave a comment until next Tuesday to enter for a little surprise giveaway.)
Easy to wear beach dresses for mummy and baby. I am no fan of swimwear or naked *shudders* chests and bum cheeks in restaurants; even if it’s only the beach café.
Lots and lots of toys for the little one. We always seem to lose more than our fair share in the sand.
Good to go now. Can’t wait.
