I Heart Summer TAG!

Hey Guys!

Today I am going to be doing the I <3 Summer TAG for you all! I saw this in Ingrid's video and I thought it would be fun to share my summer must-haves with you. On to the questions!

Favourite Bronzer For Summer:

I love Seventeen's Instant Glow Bronzing Powder in Medium for contouring beneath my cheek bones and on my temples to give me a healthy (not orange!) summer glow. It has a very subtle shimmer to it that brightens up your face. Just a really great, general bronzer available from Boots.

You're relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on? (Favourite Summer Drink):

I would really love to say something tropical here like Coconut Water, but try as I might, I just hate the taste of coconut water! It is an acquired taste and one I certainly do not have. I drink lots of water throughout the day, especially on holidays, but when I go out to dinner abroad with my family, I do like to treat myself to Fanta Lemon. It's so refreshing!

Favourite Summer Lip Product:

I'm cheating a little bit here, as I have two. One is a standard Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla and Macademia to keep my lips soft and hydrated. I wish these had a taste but then I suppose the product wouldn't be on my lips for too long because if it tasted as good as it smells, I might just have to eat it!
My other favourite summer lip product is my Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick, a fuchsia lip crayon that acts as a stain, lipstick and balm. This form of lip product is growing very popular with Bourjois introducing their take on the trend. I don;t like the minty smell of the balm stain but I love the subtle colour it gives my lips, perfect for everyday use!

Pool or Beach:

Hmmmm... this is a tricky one. I love lying on a sun lounger with a bag of magazines and books and an ice- cold bottle of water beside the pool, but I also love the sound of the sea, and the atmosphere at the beach. Sometimes I do prefer the pool though as it's easier to get some shade and also, you don't end up exfoliating yourself with a sandy suncream mixture when trying to reapply your suncream! How does the sand get everywhere??

Summer= crazy hair! What's your must- have styling product?:

I have to admit, I don't use any product on my hair during the summer, apart from occasionally taming any frizz with my Redken Glass Look Shine Serum, but apart from that, it's eau natural!

Sun bathing or fake tan?:

I know it's so bad for your skin, but I love soaking up the sun by the pool and getting a nice tan. I am always extremely careful and wear SPF 50 most of the time, especially on my face. I look and feel better with a glow!

Favourite Summer Nail Polish:

I like to keep my nails natural on holidays as I like the look of tanned skin with no nail varnish for some reason! My nails go a nice pinky nude in the sun and I think it looks really pretty. When I get paler though, I like a nice coral, like Essie's Cute As A Button to accentuate my tan.

Any Summer Traditions?:

Yep! Every weekend I go down to my mobile home in Wexford that is less than 2 minutes away from the beach, and with this summer we've had, it's been gorgeous! I have been going to Wexford every weekend of the summer since I was born, and my mom and her brother and sister have been going since they were kids, so it is a very old summer tradition!

Favourite Summer Scent:

This might sound weird, but I just love the smell of suncream, and because the weather has been so hot lately, I have been wearing plenty of it! It smells like holidays to me so brings back lots of lovely memories.

Favourite BBQ Food:

My sister and I don't eat red meat, so instead of burgers, we make chicken skewers with chilli powder, paprika, cayenne powder and herbs then put chicken, mushrooms, red pepper and onion on a skewer and then barbecue them! And then if I'm feeling very naughty, I make a s'more with a marshmallow barbecued until melted, on top of a chocolate digestive- Yum yum!

What's your favourite summer-proof product?

My favourite summer-proof product is my waterproof mascara from Natural Collection, I bought this for going on holidays as a cheap mascara and if it didn't work, it wouldn't be the end of the world. I recently wore it to the beach with my friends and it stayed put all day, even after going swimming and everything! I was pleasantly surprised by this product and I will be wearing it on any trips when I go to Greece on Saturday :)

Any summer vacation plans this year? No plans? Tell us about your dream summer trip!:

I am going to Greece on Saturday! Eeep, I'm so excited! I'm going to Zakynthos with my family just for a week and of course I will be taking my guys along with me :) I will be filming OOTD, OOTN and maybe some other videos, we'll have to wait and see!

Thanks for reading this you guys! I tag EVERYONE! Yep, even you! Specifically, I TAG:

Danielle @ The Imperfect Beauty Queen
Amber @ Bambi Beauty Spot

xoxo, Emma
