My Summer Essentials 2015

Are you going abroad and have no clue what to pack? Or staying at home for the summer and don’t know what to do? Keep on reading!

The first thing you need and is super important (especially if you’re visiting a hot country) is sun cream, also known as sunblock and sun screen. It’s quite self-explanatory, you apply sun cream to your skin to prevent horrible sunburn. If you’re from the UK I highly recommend Soltan Kids Once 8 Hr play Spray which costs £9.00 from Boots, it’s on offer hurry! Also available for adults.

Sunglasses? Sunglasses. There’s no doubt that you’ll wear sunglasses this summer, so it’ll be nice to have a few pairs. The stores where I buy my sunglasses are River Island and Topshop. If they’re bright and different shapes that’s a bonus!

Hats! not only do they protect your head but they’re pretty stylish; bucket hats, fedoras or caps etc. Make your own trends this summer and rock the look.

I’m definitely putting metallic tattoos in my suitcase because they’re cute as heck they’re fun, stands out and gives you the Coachella vibes! You can find them on the topshop website or amazon.

How could I forget? Flip flops duh. If you’re on your way to the beach and don’t want to get your shoes dirty because I don’t ! then slip your feet into flip flops, super cute and super stylish. The best deals to buy as many flip flops for a  little amount of money is Primark but I also love getting my flip flops from Accessorize.

Another item I’m definitely packing in my suitcase is my Polaroid ; it’s amazing as it instantly produces the pictures you’ve taken, I’m completely obsessed ! . I ordered my Polaroid (black) and Polaroid film from Amazon.

I am absolutely in love with Such A Flirt from Victoria Secret, it smells of chamomile and aloe vera and it reminds me of summer because it’s quite sweet, it’s so  calming and refreshing! I highly recommend you guys this 🙂

* I didn’t include the basic things ie. shoes, swimwear, passport and jewellery etc as they’re pretty simple and necessary, I hope you remember to pack these !!
