I go to Corfu on Monday for 2 weeks, so this will probably be one of my last posts before I go!
I literally cannot wait- I feel like it is such a needed holiday! Today was my last day at work for a few weeks (yay), and I got my hair cut yesterday in preparation (first time in like half a year, much to the dismay of the hairdresser, woops), so now all that’s left to do is pack. I’m currently embarking upon the mammoth task- there are bikinis, flipflops, sun-creams and dresses strewn around my room as I write, so I thought what better way to procrastinate and avoid packing than to do a post on my holiday essentials!
My essentials from left to right:
Soleve Sunburn Relief- This year I am going prepared! Despite being fairly olive-skinned, no matter how much sun-cream I put on, I always seem to be caught out by the sun and end up spending a fortune on sunburn relief in a foreign chemist. My Mum is such a saviour for buying me this! Bless her.
Mark Hill’s Holiday Hair SUMMER LOVING protection serum- I love this stuff. I bought it for my holiday a few years ago and not only does it smell divine but it makes my hair silky smooth and saves me from holiday frizz.
Revlon Nail Enamel in Teak Rose– I bought this yesterday as a last minute holiday purchase for my nails, such a lovely dusky pink colour, which I’m sure will look great with a tan!
Ultrasun Face sun-cream in 50+ spf- Since the skin on your face is so delicate, it’s only right you protect it well! I absolutely love the amazing quality of Ultrasun. I usually use atleast 30 spf on my body, but I think using a higher factor on your face is really important.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Beachmate deep treatment- Aussie hair products always smell amaaazing, and this really nourishes and softens hair after a long day in the sun at the beach, where the sun’s fierce heat often dries hair out.
No7 Perfectly Bronzed Bronzing Pearls- I can’t wait to use this to when I have developed a nice tan!
Dermalogica After sun repair– As you may have read from my previous post, I can’t get enough of Dermalogica! This is always an essential for me on holiday, it soothes skin that has been in the sun all day and feels really refreshing after a long hot day by the pool or beach!
NARS illuminator in Orgasm- This is a recent purchase, and so far I love it. It gives a fantastic subtle shimmer to cheeks that catches in the light and really highlights those cheekbones! I’m looking forward to using this alongside the bronzing pearls.
TOPSHOP Lexi round sunglasses– my new favourite sunglasses!! It’s always such a struggle finding glasses that suit your face, so I was so relieved that these looked good as I had order copious pairs to try on!
And of course, a good holiday book!- I’ve been meaning to read this for so so long, and now I finally can. I love all of Khaled Hosseini’s books so I can’t wait to get stuck into this!
