The Summer Tag

Monday, 8 June 2015

It's finally starting to feel like summer here in England. We had a beautiful weekend which really got me in the spirit of the season, so I thought I would create this fun tag to help you get to know me and a few of my favourite bloggers better!

1. What's your favourite thing about summer?
The atmosphere! It's (hopefully) sunny and everyone just seems happier and more positive. There's a fresh smell in the air and I seem to wake up every morning feeling energetic and ready to go! I like the excitement of unplanned summer adventures and making memories that will last a lifetime.
2. Do you have a favourite summer drink?
During those hot summer days I absolutely love to drink the Volvic coco pineapple water, it's like summer in a bottle and keeps me so hydrated. And for those warm summer nights with friends I love me some whiskey and ice - its my favourite grown up drink ;)
3. Is there a special place you like to visit each summer
Not anywhere in particular. As long as I'm with my loved ones then it's sure to be a good day. Dan and I love a visit to Longleat safari park, but I also love just hanging in the garden with my friends and a BBQ, enjoying every moment of sun!
4. Whats your favourite make up look for summer?
Nothing too heavy. There's nothing worse than a face clogged with makeup sweating and causing breakouts. I keep it light and fresh with some of my Garnier BB miracle skin perfector, some eyeliner (I like to use the Maybelline colour tattoos), mascara, and a nice hydrating lip balm. I also like to apply bronzer to my cheeks and temples for a healthy glow!
5. Dresses or skirts?
This is really hard because I like that you can mix and match with a skirt, but I think I just prefer dresses as there are so many styles and they are so versatile. You can easily switch a dress from a day time look with a sunhat and sandals to a night time outfit simply by adding some heels or wedges and some nice jewelry!
6. Festivals or Vacations?
Vacations. Festivals just aren't my scene, they look awesome but I cant imagine spending all that money for 2 or 3 days sleeping in a dirty field without showers or toilets, id much rather go on an adventure with my friends - it doesn't even have to be abroad, just a few days away to explore and let our hair down.
7. Whats your signature summer hairstyle?
Its cliche and boring, but in the summer I love simple beachy waves with a french braided fringe. I don't like anything too fussy but I do like to have my fringe out of my face to keep it sweat-free! Nice ;)
8.  What's your signature summer scent?
I don't tend to change my fragrance due to the current season, I just wear what I like best. But I have actually been enjoying wearing the Victoria's Secret 'Coconut Passion' body mist lately. Its tropical and exotic and so light. It isn't too sickly sweet, either! And for special dates or nice occasions I have really been loving StormFlower by Cheryl. Its very elegant and refreshing.
9. Favourite music for summer?
If you know me well, you'll know I'm a real country music fan, and this summer I have been especially loving Josh Turner's albums 'Punching Bag' and 'Haywire' as well as Brad Paisleys new album 'Moonshine in the Trunk'. On a non-country note, I am addicted to Maroon 5 'Sugar', Carly Rae Jepsen 'I really like you' and, of course, anything by Katy Perry!
10. Pool or Beach?
Pool, definitely. I'm not really a fan of the beach as I'm afraid of the sea and I find it a little boring. I'd much rather be tanning by the pool, listening to music, sipping on tropical drinks and juices and taking a dip in non-salty water!
11. BBQ or Seafood?
BBQ for sure. I hate seafood, but even if I didn't - you just cant beat a summer BBQ. the smell is amazing and everything is so delicious - plus you can toast marshmallows on there too!

Now that you've gotten to know me a little better, I tag XOXOMeaghan, Jasmine Talks Beauty, Diary of a beauty padawan, Permanent Procrastination , Sazbomb, Cakes crumbs and pages, HaySparkle and LaurennnHobbs  to complete the summer tag and nominate their favourite bloggers to take part. Please make sure you link back to me, too!

And for my non-blogger friends, whats your favourite part of summer?


  1. I do appreciate being tagged! I live right near the beach in Australia. I love fruity perfumes, and natural beach waves for iconic summer hair. But first I've got to get through Winter!
