Summer Sizzlers | Holiday Edit

​When it’s so hot I can barely wear any makeup! As long as you have a few key products to keep you topped up in the sun and glowing, you’re good to go. Going on holiday? Then you must take these sizzlers with you!

Makeup isn’t totally important, but a little bit is always good. I don’t know about you guys, but when I’m scorching, all I need is a bit of glow and tan and I’m ready!

Summer Favourites

Fur Slides, Primark

Primark Fur Slides

When something is so good, you gotta feature it twice right? I am LOVING these for comfort, ease and affordability. I can’t get enough of these slides! A great alternative to the famous Puma ones, but at less than a fraction of the cost.

Tory Burch Mini Duo

Tory Burch Minis

Two pretty and fresh smelling scents  – the classic signature fragrance, and the new one ‘Absolu’ – take it on holiday, take it to the beach, stash it in your bag, it’s perfect! There are crisp notes of grapefruit, and it’s a feminine yet strong fragrance. SUPER cute glass bottles too! This duo is a great little holiday must have.

So…? Pink Grapefruit Body Mist

So Pink Grapefruit Body Mist

OBVS we all want to smell good. I am STILL loving my So…! Fragrance mists. I carry one everywhere with me, and I’m addicted to using it since they launched these. You can buy these in a range of scents, but my personal favourites are watermelon, grapefruit and vanilla. ​They smell so good and the scent actually lasts unlike some mists. There is a scent to suit all moods and personalities and I love that they come in these colourful transparent bottles. Summer in a bottle right?!

Zhuzh! Tan Accelerator

Zhuzh Tan

Already caught a tan? No problem! Top it up with Zhuzh! A skin conditioner which is designed to accelerate  your tan. A quick and simple to use spray which can be taken away with you, this is made to work with your skin colour. Totally lightweight, you simply spray this onto your skin and rub in gently. Hate that greasy feeling? It applies so smooth on, moisturising the skin and non sticky. It’s a winner! Anything that contains Shea Butter is a good sign for me!

Pixi Glow Mist

Pixi Glow Mist

13 natural oil AND it illuminates? I was sold! I am loving using this Pixi Glow Mist in the heat. It gives a gorgeous natural glow and it’s completely non greasy (take it from me, I am oily as anything!) I love everything about the natural ingredients in this mist. My face feels instantly refreshed. You can use this as much as you want! I am currently using it twice  a day. PS, it’s not just for the face! You can use this on your, your body and anywhere else you want a bit of oomph!

Chip Purse, Primark

Primark Chip Purse Beauty & The Beast

I mean… how cute is this?! Yes, it’s a tiny teacup purse to store your loose change in and I am totally obsessed!! It doesn’t come any cuter than this!! I literally jumped with excitement when I got my hands on this, and it’s so adorable. How could I not pick this up! This is perfect for carrying any loose change around in. Especially when you don’t want to be dealing with lugging a big bag around on your hols!

Estee Lauder Heat Wave

Estee Lauder Heatwave

Probably my CULT highlighter for this season, I can’t get enough of this! You can read all about why you NEED this on your hols right here and here!

Lee Stafford Big Texture Spray

Lee Stafford Big Texture Spray

Big hair outta control this season? This little genius is half hair spray and half dry shampoo. Designed to volumise, texturise AND polish your entire look off. No one wants to be faffing around with their hair on holiday, so this double duty product is a must have! It will instantly give you volume and tame any fly away strays.

If this doesn’t get you in the mood to go away on holiday, then I don’t know what will! I am already dreaming of the sun and sand!

Basic Beauty Tools | The Spongedry

I get very excited about a new beauty gadget. Following on from my last post about sponges, you will know how obsessed I am. I use my sponges for blending, foundation, baking – you name it! Storage for these can be tricky because what to do when your drying the sponge? You invest in The Spongedry of course! This is a new innovative way to store your wet sponges without losing them.

What You Get

  • Holder
  • Sponge
  • Pouch to store holder in

How It Works

The holder is designed to store your makeup sponge in when drying or when not in use. If you are travelling, then you can store your holder in the handy pouch it comes with, which takes up minimum room.

Colour Combinations

If like me, you love bright colours, the spongedry is available in a variety of colour combinations to brighten up your vanity. I of course, opted for the Purple/Pink combination, but you can select from Black, White, Pink and Purple in any of those combinations for the holder and sponge. I love that you can mix and match your own set too. It makes it more personalised and fun.

How To Use

What Makes It So Different?

Spongedry (10)

The sponge has a teardrop style shape which has a flat side and a pointy tip. The material of the sponge is highly comparable to the Beauty Blender? Why? The material is porous which means it blends easily and dries super quick too. It has a bouncy texture which makes makeup application so easy and quick.

This sponge is an all rounder for me because it blends my concealer in so well, it has a big area for blending my foundation and I even use the flat side of the sponge to bake my under eyes and sharpen my contour. It’s perfect and I really enjoy using it. The flat pointed tip means you can get right into the under eye and blend the concealer fully without missing a section.
