Holy cow, this school year has gone by faster than twitter drama. Not funny.
And, since we have reached this glorious time of the year, where we either have to hide from the death ball in the sky and stay as secure as possible in this *hot* mess of a weather (get it), or just go outside and enjoy the su-…is that what normal people do?
So today we are talking about essentials, which I’m going to show through these a e s t h e t i c a l l y p l e a s i n g photos. Here you go! Enjoy 😀
The Actual List:
Sunglasses are so very important, not only because they protect your eyeballs, but they also make things much easier and comfortable to look at and spice up your outfit, which is what makes them absolute essentials.
Sun Lotion + SPF Chapstick
This one is pretty staple, like “yeah, we get it, sun lotion, whatever.” WELL, since it’s so basic you MUST wear it, it will save yer butt later on. Also, buy SPF chapstick, since your lips are just as important as your skin. Trust me, it’s worth it.
Tilted Lip Balm + Moisturising Balm
You may not believe this, but my lips actually get twice as dry and chapped in summertime as they do in wintertime. Maybe it’s because of those REALLY hot summers, where the air is always so dry, they just affect my lips. So that is also very important.
Bomb-ass Shower Gels
Since the weather is obviously a lot hotter, you’re probably gonna take a few more showers than usual, which means you’re gonna go through a lot of shower gels, which also means that you’re gonna smell like them for some time, so you might as well just get the best scents EVER. My personal favourites are Peony and Juniper Breeze by Bath and Body Works. Peony is just a bit more floral and sweeter and gives me the idea of roses, and then we have Juniper Breeze, which reminds me of a hot summer day underneath an apple tree. Very refreshing! Here are the key notes:
Peony: Peony Petals, Garden Rose, Sandalwood
Juniper Breeze: Juniper Leaves, Green Apple, Blue Jasmine, Fresh Woods, Dewy Musk
You obviously need a fragrance, and my personal fave is Black Opium, smells lovely!
Pool parties, eh? Naaaaah. But if that is your thing, waterproof mascara is always a priority, or just every day, when the air is especially humid.
A Good Blush and A Pinky Lipstick
If you want a look to look more natural, the ideal way is with bronzer, or blush in my case, since I get reaaally tan in the summer. Like literally. My skin tone gets like 847 shades darker. Not kidding.
I personally find that summertime makes lipsticks look 3 times better, but I think pinky lipsticks look the best out of all, but we all have different personal opinions.
Do we even have to say anything about this? Do you want to get insolation? No? Good, then wear a damn sunhat. Plus, they look real cute.
Cute and Comfortable Sandals
Our feet need a break. They need to breathe. And how do you get that to happen? Sandals. But who wants to spend a whole 7 and a half minutes putting them on? That’s why they have to be comfy and easy to slip into. Those are the ideal shoes ❤
And that’s it!
I hope that I’ve helped you with this little list, I’ve really enjoyed writing it xxx.
Love ya. Cheers, bye
