i heart summer tag

Hi guys! The lovely Melissa from It's Me Mel has kindly tagged me to do the 'I Heart Summer' tag, and although I'm a little late since it's getting dark at 8 again now, I thought this would be a nice way to say goodbye to the Summer (not that we had much of one!), sum up some of my favourite Summer products, and prepare for Autumn!
1. Favourite bronzer for summer?
I love love love Seventeen's Instant Glow Gold Bronze Shimmer Brick, that's a mouthful! There are four gorgeous shades in this little compact, and I sweep a contour brush across the powder to create a gorgeous bronzed glow! The lightest shade is also great to use as a highlighter, and I got this for less than £5.
2. You're relaxing on a hammock in a tropical island, what would you be sipping on?
Lemonade, my all time favourite drink, or a Sex on the Beach cocktail with a little umbrella just for fun! I do try not to be naughty and drink at least 2 litres of water when I'm somewhere warm though to stay hydrated.
3. Favourite summer lipstick?
I've been loving bright coral colours this Summer. I'm not really a fan of wearing lipstick in the heat though so while I was abroad this year I was constantly using Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous. It gives a gorgeous summery colour, smells delicious and stays on all day! 
4. Pool or beach?
I love both but I'd have to choose the pool. I love beach days and swimming in the sea, but applying suncream to sand-covered skin is just such a hassle, and it hurts my feet so much when the sand is too hot!
5. Summer = crazy hair, what's your must have styling product?
This year I loveeeeed using the Aussie Beach Mate shampoo and conditioner. Aussie products have been a staple in my shower for years, and these little limited edition beauties were a godsend abroad! Charles Worthington Sunshine Shampoo is also excellent. It makes my hair super shiny while protecting it from the sun too!
6. Sunbathing or fake tanning?
I fake tan all year round using St Moritz lotion and tanning mitt, which is obviously the safe option of tanning! However, I am guilty of lying out in the sun all day on holiday, relaxing on a sunlounger is heaven, but I make sure to apply a high SPF regularly.
7. Favourite summer nail polish?
I love bright colours on my nails in Summer, especially reds, pinks and oranges. My two most used nail polishes this year were Nails Inc's Portobello and Rimmel's Coralicious. They're both gorgeous, super fast drying colours!
8. Any summer traditions?
I don't have any die hard traditions but I love to go to the park with friends on sunny days and relax, I love wearing summery clothes, going to the beach, family BBQs, taking my doggy Tara for long walks and sitting outside in the warm evenings with a cocktail!
9. Favourite summer scent?
Marc Jacobs' Daisy, every time!
10. Favourite BBQ food?
I'm not a massive fan of BBQ food, I don't eat a lot of meat so I'd always opt for a salad or chicken burger if possible, but I do like the odd hot dog!
11. Favourite summer proof makeup?
Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof was my staple make up product this summer. I feel as long as I have mascara on I can conquer the world! I've also loved Maybelline's Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, it stays put all day and is the perfect shimmery shade for Summer.
12. Any summer vacations planned?
I spent my Summer in Tenerife so sadly I've not got any holidays coming up, although I am going back for a week at the end of October for a little reunion with some of the friends I made out there, I can't wait!

Thanks for reading this guys! Think I'll do an Autumn tag next, bit more appropriate haha!
