I heart summer tag!

Hello again lovelies

I hope you are all well and enjoying the summer! It seems to have finally arrived in the UK and Ingrid- Missglamorazzi on YouTube just posted a video for the I heart summer tag and I thought it was perfect timing. (click here to watch)

I love summer, the thought of it all make me so happy just the weather is never as good as it is in my fantasies! 

1. Favourite bronzer for summer?
My fav bronzer and pretty much the only one I own (need to try more!) is Nars Laguna bronzer. I love this. I use it to give my fave a bit of colour so I put it where the sun would tan your face most and it just looks really nice  

2. You're relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island, what are you sipping on?

I would totally be sipping on a frozen strawberry lemonade. It's the best drink I have ever had. If you're in America. Go to the restaurant applebees and have a frozen strawberry lemonade. It'll be the best thing you ever do with your life. I wish we could get them in the uk :( definitely should learn to make them!

3. Favourite summer lip product 

Of course I can't pick just one. I ended up with 5, woops. 

Left to right
Revlon lip butters: wild watermelon, tutti frutti
Maybelline color sensational vivids: shocking coral
L'oreal lipstick that i don't know what kind it is! But it's in the shade blushing sequin
Lastly my Dior lipgloss in glow
Top to bottom is same as left to right with the lipgloss on the far right

The revlon lip butters are fantastic. They give off a lot of colour but are also very moisturising. These are the two colours I own and probably my two favourites in the whole line although I'm eyeing up the shade sorbet. Tutti frutti is a bright orangey coral and wild watermelon is a beautiful kind if red with a bit if coral to it.  But the colours are just perfect for summer and they are great no fuss lip products 

The maybelline lipstick is just so fun. It's a bright bright like neonish coral thats just so perfect for this time of year. It looks great with and without a tan. I find its amazing when you have just like very natural make up, like only mascara and then this on the lips. It's just perfect 

This l'oreal lipstick I talk about all the time. It's so fantastic I wish I bought more when I was in America because they aren't out in the uk yet. This lipstick is the perfect bright pink with perfect balance between sheer and opaque! I just love it so much and it lasts a really long time!

Lastly my Dior lipgloss is my pride and joy. I bought this in duty free on my way to lanzarote and I don't regret the small fortune it cost me. Its another coral colour. You can tell i just love coral. It looks great by itself as beautiful brignt gloss but not in your face. You get me? and it also looks great over other lipsticks. 

4. Pool or beach?
I would always say the pool probably because in Scotland I could never go in the sea it's just far too cold but If i was in Hawaii or something then "lets go to the beach each lets go get away"

5. Summer =crazy hair, what's your must have styling product? 

In the UK I certainly don't have any crazy hair problems that I don't have in winter because there is zero humidity here. But this is just my go to styling product to tame down my naturally crazy hair. It's the Aussie dual personality curl definition and soft feel serum and its part of the frizz miracle range. I just got this at boots and I really like it. It just really helps to calm down the frizziness of natural curly hair. 

6. Sun bathing or fake tanning? 
I love sun bathing not going to lie but I always wear sun cream and I never get burn so it's okay! I never really fake tan although I bought a gradual tan from dove which I used for the first time a few days ago and I really like it so maybe this is me entering the tanning world!

7. Favourite summer nail polish
Again I couldn't pick one I ended up choosing twelve! I have a slight addiction to nail polish which if read my blog on a regular basis you already know
I picked 4 essay polishes 
bikini so teeny
Mint candy apple
Penny talk 
I picked one models own nail Polish. It's called northern lights and its just so beautiful! Opaque pale pink and holographic glitter! 
I chose 5 Barry m gelly hi shine. I just live these
Prickly pear
Passion fruit
And lastly two china glaze polishes 
First is fairy first which is a clear nail polish with finely milled holographic glitter through it. This just adds extra gorgeousness to any nail polish. I can't even explain how much I love it. When the sun hits it is just ugh so beautiful!
The other china glaze one I picked is turned up turquoise. This is like a neon turquoise green. It's so bright and so fun I just love it. 

8. Any summer traditions?
I guess going on holiday with my family abroad is a summer tradition because Ive been lucky enough to get to go abroad every year since I was 4. 

9. Favourite summer scent?
This year my favourite summer scent is the Marc Jacobs daisy eau so fresh sunshine

First of all, just look at the bottle! It's so beautiful. It screams summer!
This was in my June favourites and I typed out what the Marc Jacobs website says about the scent as I'm rubbish at describing fragrances so here it is again. "A playful floral fruity, Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine reinterprets the classic Daisy Eau So Fresh with a bolder, fruitier twist. Colorful and energetic, the fragrance radiates sun-drenched juiciness with an addictive fruity top. The heart is an intoxicating breeze of airy, uplifting jasmine petals that dries down to a smooth, velvety base of warmth and subtle sweetness. 

Top Notes: Strawberry, Apple Blossom, Pink Grapefruit 
Mid Notes: Jasmine Petals, Day Lily, Rose 
Base Notes: Violet Leaf, White Oak Moss, Amber Wood"

10. Favourite BBQ food?
Mine would be corn on the cob for non meat wise and meat wise I love chicken skewers especially with pepper and onion! So good!

11. What's your favourite summer proof product? 
Mine will be water proof mascara. I love the covergirl clump crusher mascara and also the no.7 stay perfect mascara which I review here

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

I've actually already been on my main holiday which was to Florida. (Read about it here). I went with my sister my parents and my grandparents. It was a fantastic holiday I had so much fun. 
But I also am going away for just short of a week with my granny. She booked it for me and her as a surprise because I was having a rubbish start to the year. So we are going to London and Paris and I'm so excited! I've always dreamed of Paris and I'm finally getting to go! We are spending three nights in Paris and three nights in London! Don't want to tell you too much about what we're doing while we are there because I plan to do a whole post when I get back accompanied by beautiful pictures!

So thats it! 

If you do this please comment with a link I'd love to read them!
