I thought this kind of post would be a cute idea for those people who are going on a summer holiday this year and can't decide what items are must-have, plus since I go on holiday soon it's a great way to help me stay organised.

I have quite natural frizzy hair, so you can imagine how annoying it is when it mixes with humidity so Living Proof - No Frizz Humidity Shield is an absolute must have. If you're going to be exposed to sun, then a good SPF is an absolute must to help reduce the risk of premature ageing so I'd taking Nip+Fab - Post Glycolic SPF30 moisturiser - you really can't go wrong with Nip+Fab skincare, it's one of my faves! Another essential has to be a good pair of sunglasses, especially if the lens contain UV protection! If you're after some affordable sunglasses, my faves brand are Quay Australia in the style Paradiso, but they have so many beautiful styles. If you're a sun baby like me then there is nothing more I like than sunbathing while reading a good book, so my Kindle Paperwhite is definitely being packed into my hand luggage, full of YA and chick lit books! 

When it's so warm, I normally can't be fussed about jewellery, but one item I cannot resist which always makes me feel super summery is a beautiful anklet; Accessorize stock some of the prettiest sterling silver anklets! Lastly, it wouldn't be summer without some amazing footwear. This year, the in trend seems to be pompoms and I could not be more happy with this, I'm so on board with having pom poms on my shoes. Fearlesss stock some amazing variation of pom pom espadrilles that I'm dying to get my hands on (yes, I do need every style...)!

What are you summer essentials?


  1. Yes that moisturiser is fab. I'm using it right now & it's great for hot weather & oily t zone

  2. These all look great! My summer essentials is definitely a makeup with SPF, as well as a lip treatment with SPF. Being a pale Irish girl I need all the sun protection I can get!

  3. Ah this is such a clever post! Also I adore those shoes, they're adorable!
    I hardly ever go away but this is so handy for people that do, loved the post Rach 💛

  4. I'm going away soon so this is a super helpful post! Definitely gonna check out that Nip + Fab moisturiser!!

  5. Can't beat a good pair of sunglasses for the summer sun! Haven't tried much from Nip + Fab yet i didn't know they had an SPF moisturiser!
