I love how each season our needs change and so does our routine. Even though it is kind of similar it is never the same. Of course trends always play a big part in our daily routine even in the smallest details. Summer for me is all about feeling free, happy and enjoying myself even though it isn't my favourite season as most of you already know. Today I want to share with you my summer essentials and some new products I've recently discovered and can't imagine my life without any more.
I went mad for these Dior sunglasses when I first saw them so I had to get them. I am more of a classics girl when it comes to dressing myself so a trendy pair of sunglasses as well as a few more accessories are all I need to change my look from boring to fashion forward.
One of these products is also my Chloe Faye bag in the colour Tobacco. I carry it around everywhere I go because it is one of those pieces that as I said is trendy, gorgeous and completely changes up my look.
Bal d' Afrique by Byredo is my new favourite scent. I discoved Byredo on Pinterest, as it was on most popular blogs' photos. As I visited London recently I searched to find it and I found it in Selfridge's. I was so happy about it! The scent is gorgeous and it stays on for hours. I am so in love with it!
A similar situation happened with Dyson's Supersonic Hairdryer. I have signed my email to Selfridge's to be able to get emails with all of their latest news and trends and I saw it there. It is the most beautiful hairdryer I have ever seen and apparently the best one, too. It takes in the air from the bottom right above its cable and so it doesn't suck your hair in. I can't help but love how gorgeous it is and kind of futuristic, too. If you want to check more photos of it, you can visit our Instagram page at @abflblog.
If you follow my blog for quite a long time, you know that I adore Tom Ford's nail polishes. I use them with OPI's Strengthening base coat and RapiDry top coat and the combination is an absolute dream!! The last perfectly for 10 days and after that amount of time I will some chipping! Amazing!
Sunscreen is an essential for everyone during summer. I can't live without Lancaster's sunscreens. They are my favourite. Let's also not forget that sunscreen is also one of the best anti-ageing products you can use!
What I adore about Lancome's Juicy Shakers (apart from the packaging of course) is how hydrating they are. I really love all of the colours but one of my favourites is Mangoes Wild. To be honest though I can never just choose one shade.
Okay. It's not just the nail polishes I love from Tom Ford, but also the lipsticks. They are my favourites along with Armani and Charlotte Tilbury's lipsticks. I can't imagine my life without them any more. I also really love them when I combine them with glosses and especially Lancome's Juicy Shakers.
A relatively new product I came to love from Charlotte Tilbury is her Legendary Brows, brow gel. It is a dream. It comes in a clear colour as well as three shades that compliment most if not all brows. The one I have is called Cara D. and it is inspired by Cara Delevine's gorgeous brows.
Visiting the beach with either friends of family (or even sometimes both) is a must during the summer due to the high temperatures. An equally big must for me is to also carry my tablet and earphones with me. My tablet is the Apple iPad and my earphones are the classic ones that come with iPhones.
As always a book is also an essential but I haven't really found one that I adore, yet, unfortunately.
