I Love Summer Tag


I saw this tag on Pink Peonies and Lipgloss Kisses and thought I would join in…

Favourite bronzer for summer?
Hmm. I’m still looking for the perfect powder bronzer, but I have been loving the Stila Bronzing Beauty Balm as a cream bronzer. It is easier to use and looks more natural to me than powder bronzer. And this summer I will definitely get the Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base!

You’re relaxing in a hammock on a tropical island. What are you sipping on?
Limoncello mixed with soda water or lemonade.

Favourite summer lip product?
Last summer I was mad about Revlon balm stains. This summer I have so many beautiful new lipsticks I can’t pick a favourite! But my Smashbox O-Gloss Gold deserves a mention…it screams summer to me.

Pool or beach?
The beach. I live a minute’s walk from the beach so in summer I am in beach mode all day, every day. I can’t stand being away from the sea especially in summer when the sea breeze makes the heat bearable.

Summer = crazy hair. What’s your must-have styling product?
My poor hair always get stuck in a bun and neglected. But the products I use most often in summer are the Kiehl’s silk groom for softness and manageability and Lee Stafford sea salt spray for beachy waves.

Sun bathing or fake tan?
Definitely fake tan! I have no desire to look like Donatella Versace. Ever. I use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Gradual Tan Moisturiser in summer for a natural looking tan. Very keen to try the St Tropez version!

Favourite summer nail polish?
I love bright orange, pink and turquoise for my toes. This summer I will be wearing Zoya pixie dust in Godiva on my nails every single day, it is so pretty!

Any summer traditions?
Er, Christmas? Other than that, we go to Big Bay and eat ice cream on the beach at least three times a week.

Favourite summer scent?
I don’t usually change my perfume between summer and winter, I just wear what I like. But this summer I am making Dior Addict Eau Delice my go-to summer scent.

Favourite BBQ food?
I am not a braai fan really, but I like boerewors done on the Weber. Also smoked snoek. But I usually head straight for the potato bake and garlic bread!

What’s your favourite summer-proof product?
Waterproof mascara and either Stila BB cream or CC cream.

Any summer vacation plans this year?
Nope. We haven’t had a holiday literally in 5 years! I would love to go on a cruise but I know I will have spent all my money on makeup Christmas presents by the time Christmas holidays roll around, so I will be broke.
