6 Things I Love About Summer

Us Brits, we notoriously love talking about the weather so much and seem to spend our entire year counting down the minutes until summer arrives. And despite when the much coveted season eventually rolls around, we initially begin complaining about the lack of air conditioning and how much we’re melting, deep down – we love it really. There’s something so wonderfully magical about summer. Something that brings out the best in all of us, even if it’s just the little things.

I’ll be completely honest with you here. Despite being a full-time fashion and lifestyle blogger, I know very little about fashion. I wouldn’t consider myself trendy, nor particularly stylish and I truly believe I’ve made so many faux pas that I should win some kind of award.

I can now count the number of ‘real friends’ on one hand – and I’m much more selective about who I let into my ‘inner circle’ in my head. By nature, I’m a very kind, forgiving and generous person.

How to get the golden glow for summer

Winter passes in a blur of dehydrated skin, dark smoky eyes and (for me) a whole lot of concealer. So by the time summer comes around, I’m wanting to completely revamp my make-up bag and begin to bring back the glow. Because lets face it, if there’s any season we can attempt a Gigi Hadid esque dewy look, it’s when the sun is shining. So, in case you feel the same way, I wanted to introduce you to a few of my latest dressing table additions, which are helping me update my ‘everyday’ look to something a little more fresh and…
