The Summer Tag

I saw this tag over at Writing Essays With Wine and thought I hadn't done a tag in a while, so today I'm going to give it a go! If you're a lover of Summer then I urge you to take part and leave me a little comment letting me know so I can take a peek! 

What's your favourite thing about Summer?
Holidays. I am a massive holiday junkie as I'm sure most other people are. I'm very fortunate in the fact that I've never had a year when I haven't flown to somewhere super hot and I think this has spoilt me a little. So now I try and get away as much as I can during Summer. 

Do you have a favourite Summer drink?
Daiquiris. Any flavour. Any place. There is a place in Nottingham, Revolution, that does frozen daiquiris and whilst they're a little pricey for your average night on the town, they are totally worth it. I love fruity cocktails, alcoholic or not and there is nothing better than sitting in the sun with a cocktail in hand whilst you slowly turn a beautiful bronze colour.

Is there a location you like to go each Summer?
Well, Summer is festival season right? After Download this year, I'd now quite like to fit at least one festival in each year. Maybe not involve the camping, after experiencing being in a tent in this heat I think I'll skip that part, but I love the festival atmosphere! I've been before and wish I was going again this year, but next year I'd like to try Leeds Festival.

Favourite make-up look for the Summer?
I kinda wear the same make-up most of the year, despite having a beauty blog, I am not very experimental. However, for example, when I'm on holiday and it is FAR too hot to slap layer after layer of make-up on, I opt for natural. I ditch the foundation, stick with a REALLY light powder and a cat flick on the eyes with a nice summer coloured lip!

Dresses or skirts?
Both? I live in dresses and I own several skirts. Although, we're in July and I still haven't really had my legs out much! That's what you get for working inside 5 days a week in a uniform, sad face :( 

Sandals or ballet pumps?
Sandals. All the way. I really don't think ballet pumps suit me, at all, so I tend to avoid them like the plague. I don't actually think I even own a pair. Sandals on the other hand.. I am a gladiator sandal fiend for sure.

Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for Summer?
I actually hate wearing my hair up, although I do at work a lot of the time to try and get an extra day out of it before washing it. So for this one, I'll say down. I always have my hair down.

Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
This is a tricky one. I love a good smokey eye but I'm a serious lip junkie. I'm gonna pick bold lips because a smokey eye is a smokey eye, whereas a bold lip can be any bright colour you choose. I'm loving my new Kate Moss lipstick ATM which is a purple with a deep pink. That makes no sense, but oh well!

Favourite perfume for Summer?  
I'm currently wearing Juicy Couture in Noir, which I've been wearing all year. I'm not a huge perfume person and will never buy it for myself so I tend to ask for a few different bottle for Christmas/Birthdays. 

Last but not least, favourite music for Summer?
My music taste is constantly changing, I never really listen to the same things two days in a row. But why don't you take a look at my July Playlist and see what I've been listening to so far this month!


  1. You certainly are all about the bold lip! Im loving your purple look atm :)
