The Summer Tag

30 June 2015

Hey everyone! Hope you are all okay! First of all I would like to apologize for my lack of blog posts, my laptop recently crashed and burned and I've been so busy with training for my new job and with all the sad news this past weekend I haven't really felt like blogging much. Today I thought I would return and do a fun little tag post which is The Summer Tag. I have done the Spring, Autumn and Winter tag so I thought why not to do the summer tag as it has been absolutely scorching in London the past couple of days! I haven't been tagged by anybody in particular to do this but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

1. What is your favorite thing about Summer? 
100% the amount of sun there is! I'm not too big on the heat as I'm quite self conscious and don't really like to show off my arms and legs that much so I do tend to be more covered up. However I love the sun and the BBQ scents and the fact that everyone smiles a lot more at each other when the sun is out and is a lot more positive in general. I also love that everything is moved outside as well. I'm currently using my brother's laptop and writing this post outside in my garden! It's just so lovely! 

2. Do you have a favorite summer drink? 
Pink Lemonade without a doubt has always been my favorite summer drink. ''Not too sweet, not too sour, just too pink' QUOTE THAT FILM! However at the moment I'm obsessed with the watermelon and strawberry coolers from Costa. So so delicious and super refreshing! 

3. Is there a special place you like to visit each summer? 
I love going to Homestead Heath in London as it's just so so beautiful and when you're on the greenery you can basically see the whole of London in front of you. It's just so beautiful and a perfect picnic spot with friends or a loved one too! 

4. What's your favorite make up look for summer? 
I like the really glowy look for summer. It's actually one of my favorite looks all year round but I love it more during the summer. I love pink cheeks and using my favorite Bourjois CC cream which is just super amazing during the hot weather. Depending on how I feel however, I sometimes won't bother with make up especially if it's way to hot as I hate the way it feels on my skin. 

5. Dresses or Skirts? 
Dresses! I love skirts too but I prefer dresses as I find they suit me a lot more than skirts do. Skirts tend to make me look and feel ridiculous but dresses are fine for me! 

6. Festivals or Vacations? 
I've never been to a festival in my almost 24 years of life which saddens me a lot so at the moment I have to say vacations as going away to an exciting new place and seeing different cultures and countries. As someone who's specialises in tourism that'll probably come as no surprise to you. 

7. What is your signature summer hairstyle? 
Not going to lie, I don't really tend to have a hairstyle for any season as I tend to either have my hair half up, half down or just fully down. However I do really want to experiment more with beachy waves this year so if you know any good hair care tools that will help me achieve this look then please leave them in the description below! 

8. What is your signature summer scent? 
At the moment I'm absolutely loving Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream. I finally managed to get my hands on this perfume a couple of weeks ago and been loving it ever since. It's just so so gorgeous! 

9. Pool or Beach? 
The beach all the way as I just prefer the atmosphere there and all the fun activities that go on. I also love hearing the waves of the sea in the distance as I sunbathe and feeling the cool breeze too. I don't tend to go to the beach a lot though which is definitely something I need to start working on! 

10. BBQ or Seafood? 
BBQ's all the way! I absolutely love the smell of BBQs and the fact it's a perfect excuse to get all your family and friends together as well. I do love seafood as well but I definitely have to lean more towards the BBQ's here. 

11. Do you tan or burn? 
I tan really easily. My natural skin tone is basically a tanned colour anyway so when I'm in the sun it just goes a billion times darker. My old boss from when I was working in Turkey last year basically said I need no sun to get a tan. 

12. Favorite Summer Song? 
This is a tricky one! I absolutely love Walking On Sunshine as it just puts me in such a good mood and I'm also loving Too Young To Remember by Florrie at the moment too as I think it's the perfect summer song. California Gurls by Katy Perry is also a winner for the summer too! 

So there we have it! A few questions to help you get to know me a bit better by knowing what things I love about Summer! I must say it's definitely not my favorite time of the year. In fact I think the only thing I really like about it is that you can do more things outdoors and the days are longer! However I can't really deal with the heat that well and prefer the Autumn/Winter months a lot more. I tag everyone reading this post to do this tag! If you have already done this post then please leave a link in the description below so that I can read it. 

Are you going anywhere nice this Summer?

  1. Same here! I prefer the cooler months such as Autumn and Winter just because I don't fare too well with the heat and tan way too easily. Don't even get me started on the icky feeling of sunscreen! Summer BBQs are the best, though - since you're hoping to go to the beach more often, why don't you combine the two? You could have a BBQ on the beach AND sip on some pink lemonade while you're at it! :)

  2. Cool tag; I might do it at some point :D I'd have a few answers in common with you actually! The beach is the best place to be in the summer, and the sun is definitely the best thing about it as well!
