Summer Wish List

As it’s only 6 weeks until my holiday to Turkey, I have decided that it’s the right time to start looking for summer essentials that I know i’m going to need for the trip. I have come up with a little ‘summer wish list’ of things that I want to get before it’s too late and the panic of packing starts to kick in.
I have already brought myself the Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily Uv Defense SPF 50 (£31) because I know that it is going to be super hot in Turkey and I need to protect my face from the sun.

Mint green is my favourite colour at the moment; I think that it is the perfect colour for summer. I saw this skirt on ASOS and instantly fell in love. It’s called the asos mini skirt in Ponte with sheer panel (£25). I think that this will look great with a tan and will be nice and light for meals and walks at night-time. Finding clothes that don’t stick to you in the sun can be quite the task; cotton shorts however are a dream when it comes to hot temperatures. These New Look blue tropical print track shorts (£12.99) look so comfortable to wear around the pool. 

I am currently on the hunt for a decent beach bag; I came across this New Look clear beach bag with printed removable pouch (£19.99) and I think that it looks so summery and it will go with the bikinis that I have already purchased. I know, you’re all thinking why do I need fake tan if I’m going on holiday to get a tan? Well, as a massive fan of St Tropez (the original moose is my favourite FYI) I really want to try out their new express tan (£33). As the sun is actually making a strong appearance here in the UK I have been wearing outfits that require my legs to be out, and I hate waiting around for the original moose to develop or even sleep in it whilst it’s developing. The new express tan only requires a few hours to develop, depending on how tan you want to be. I think that this is a genius idea and can’t wait to try it out. 

In the summer I like to wear lighter foundations/bases, I’ve also been loving a lighter coverage. The Nars tinted moisturiser (£29) has been on my list of things to get for a very long time, I tried it out a couple of weeks ago and feel in love. I really need to get my shade ready for my holiday. Models own nail polish for tans are my new favourite nail collection for summer; I have the shade beach bag at the moment and really want this shade ‘shades’ (£5). It’s a muted bright coral pink and I think it will be great for the summer. Lastly, I have been eyeing up this cheek and lip tint from &other stories in the shade Pucker coral (orange light) (£12). Coral is my favourite blush and lip shade for the summer and I think that it would look amazing with a tan.

I have a fear of flying and obviously to go to turkey you have to get there via a plane. I am going with my friend’s family and my mum and dad aren’t going, I have never been on a plane without my family and I’m actually already starting to freak out a little. I am hoping that these sounds cancelling headphone from amazon (£26.99) will be able to calm me down and keep me from freaking out. Music is the best way to try and forget everything that’s happening around you.
