Are you ready for summer 2018? British weather is very unpredictable at best but of late, we’ve been enjoying summer. The weather has been amazing and it’s forecasted to continue for another few weeks. Not knowing when we might enjoy such glorious weather again, we definitely need to make use of it.
Whenever summer comes around, there are always summer essentials that I make sure I have. Whether I will be off to the local beach of to a neighbours pool, these are my summer essentials. These are items I make sure I have with me always or make sure to replace them.
Summer Essentials – #beachready
This year I am hoping I will make it to a UK beach and just bask in the incredible weather. I don’t have any specific plans yet but I know one of these weekends I need to venture off to the beach. But before that happens, here are some items I encourage everyone to make sure they have handy.
Skincare – SPF50
If there is one piece of advice I can give to my readers is the importance of protecting your skin. People often rush to enjoy the summer but often forget they need to stay protected in the summer heat. The UK might not bask often in the heat but it regards it is important to have sunscreen. Even during the winter months, the heat waves as strong enough, sunscreen is paramount.
I have a few pairs of beachwear items that I often fall back on and have worn out. Thankfully, Simply Beach and UK Swimwear sent me some lovely swimwear that I can’t wait to show off. When the opportunity arose to collaborate with these two brands I jumped at it. Having previously worked with both and loved their items, I couldn’t accept fast enough. Whether you’re a one-piece person (like me) or prefer bikinis, you won’t be disappointed. If you are struggling to choose between a bikini or swimsuit this summer, UK Swimwear and Simply Beach can help you decide.
If there is one thing I am often guilty of day in and out is forgetting to stay hydrated throughout my day. But of late, the heat has been unbearable it has been easier to always have a bottle of water with me. During the summer months, we lose more water than other seasons, hence why it is important to stay hydrated.
When it comes to items that I often take with me to the beach, apart from swimwear its a few essentials. At the beach you will often find me wearing one of two favourite items; maxi-dress or denim shorts. It is more convenient for having these two items as I can wear my swimwear underneath.
I wasn’t always too keen on having aftersun care until I tried the Hawaiian aftersun cream. Its been a few years now and I always make sure I have my aftersun care to protect my skin. I don’t often wear SPF so I make sure when I come back in I apply some aftersun cream.
Apart from ensuring my pack my beach bag full of snacks and a beach towel, I rarely take anything else. I might pack a book or magazine but be honest, after splashing I enjoy a long snooze. And there you have it, my summer essentials, what is on your list? Are you ready for summer 2018?
