The Summer Lovin' Tag

summer beauty





Ah! I love me a tag...especially a fun one that's seasonal ;)

Thank you to the beautiful Sam (A Beauty Detour | @beautydetour) for tagging me. You can read her post here and I can tell you it's making me want to go shopping and on holiday in the sun all at once!



Favorite Perfume

I've been reaching for Givenchy Live Irresistible a lot these past few weeks. It's perfect for summer, with some of those recognisable notes from this perfume line, but lighter & less serious. I love it! 



Favorite Lip Color

This is always going to be a tough question to answer at any time of the year. I'd be lying if I didn't say it's Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips - Secret Salma | post which is my new obsession for obvious reasons, and also because it's beautiful. I've also been loving MAC Cosmo which was recently kindly gifted to me by a beloved friend. And also Jouer Long Wear Lip Creme - Noisette | post for a non-pink lip.



Favorite Drink

I'm obsessed with Virgin Mojitos for that refreshing minty citrus kick. And I just have to get a Skinny Iced Mocha every time I venture out. It just has to happen! 



Favorite Blush

I'm reaching for cream blushes more than anything else. KIKO Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush - 05 & Chanel Le Blush Creme De Chanel - 69 Intonation | post are both quickly swiped and blended to leave my face looking luminous and fresh. For powder, I'm still obsessing over Milani Rose Powder Blush - Tea Rose | post.

Favorite Clothing Item
Summer time means I bring out my beautiful tie dye cotton midi dress. It's bright, colourful and breathes. My girls always think I look so glamorous when I wear it. 



Favorite Movie

I haven't watched a movie for a very long time. But thinking of a summer movie I love, I'd have to say it's between Toy Story 2 & Finding Nemo. I kid you not, when it's boiling hot out there, there's some relief to be had in submerging one's attention under those serene blue waves.



Favorite TV Show

So Netflix finally has Gilmore Girls...I can now re-watch it for the 210th time. Yay!



Favorite Food

I don't know if I have any summer specific foods that I love. I love nectarines. And aside from that it would be ice cream. I'm really loving peanut butter ice cream lately. 


I want to tag all of you ladies to do this as I'd love to know how you get your summer on ;) I'm just specifying a few lovelies here but you're all invited to do this tag...
