I always love keeping up with reading and watching the different tags that circle around the blogger community. I was very excited when Robyn from Butterfly Culture tagged me to complete the Summer Lovin’ tag. This summer has been really odd for me since it’s the first summer that I’ve been enrolled in a full semester of school. Needless to say it hasn’t felt much like summer to me. I’ve still been trying to make the most of it and i’ve been soaking up every moment of summer that I can possibly get. I’ll be sharing some of the products below that manage to get me into the summer mood.
In the summertime I’m always obsessed with fruity and more beach like scents. If the scent has a splash of coconut in it than I’ll definitely want to wear it all summer long. For the past two summers I’ve been loving the Bath and Body Works body spray in the scent Fresh Brazil Citrus. It’s got that fruity, beach, coconut flavour that I gravitate towards. I really enjoy wearing the Bath and Body Works body spray’s because I find that the scent isn’t too overpowering and the actual product lasts forever. I’ve worn the Fresh Brazil Citrus scent so many times throughout the past year and a half and it barely looks like I’ve used up the product.
Favourite Lip Colour
Choosing a favourite lip colour for the summer is an extremely difficult task. I find myself constantly switching up my lip colours because I have so many in my collection. I’ve definitely been enjoying the Colourpop ultra satin lips this summer. I find that they are a super comfortable, long lasting formula. My favourite shade for the summer so far has been echo park. It’s a nice nude that really looks like your lips but better.
My favourite summertime drink is hands down the Peach Green Tea Lemonade from Starbucks. It’s a great blend of flavours. I haven’t had this drink as much this summer because I’m usually running on little to no sleep while trying to juggle school and working. I usually need something with a bit more caffeine. My go-to summer drink when I need a caffeine kick is the Iced Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks. I find I’m constantly at Starbucks to get school work or blogging done since I don’t have a great office space at home – so I’m not surprised that where my favourite drinks are from.
My favourite blush to wear in the summer is Milani Luminoso. In the summer I rarely wear blush though, I usually just overload my face with bronzer. But I find Luminoso to be the one exception in the summer time. It gives my skin a glow and brings a nice warmth that complements bronzer really well.
Favourite Clothing Item
In the summer I really enjoy wearing dresses. I find that I want to be as comfortable as possible in the heat and that’s the easiest when I’m wearing a nice flowing dress. My favourite places to buy dresses lately have been H&M and Garage. I find both of these stores have really fun and comfortable clothing. Lately I’ve been loving this dress in particular:
This is just a really fun print for the summer time because seriously? who doesn’t love a good ice cream cone on a hot summer day.
Choosing a favourite movie for the summer is almost as difficult as picking a favourite lip colour. My best friend, Diana, and I normally go to the movies at least 3 times a month. I think the one I’ve enjoyed the most this summer has been Now You See Me 2. It was a lot better than I was expecting it to be and was a great sequel in my opinion!
Favourite TV show
I have two television shows that usually take over my summer. Those two are the Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise and Big Brother. I kind of just lump together the Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise because BIP is really just an extension of the Bachelorette. I was extremely emotionally invested in this season and was so happy with the way that it turned out. I knew from the start that Jojo and Jordan were a perfect match. I’m excited to see what’s in store for BIP the summer. It’s already shaping up to be a great season. Big Brother constantly takes over my life. I always watch the American and Canadian seasons. I’ve been trying not to become as obsessed with the show this season because of how much school work I’ve had to worry about.
My favourite food of all time is french fries. But for some reason in the summertime they taste so much better. Especially if you pick them up from a chip truck on a nice sunny day. You just can’t go wrong with snacking on french fries in the summertime.
