September 4th • Posted in Favourites
After a month of no-make-up days, wearing only bikinis and beach cover ups and packing only what I feel comfortable in, there haven’t been that many new discoveries this month, but here are some favourites anyway!
I’ve got this Ciaté nail polish in a Christmas set together with other festive colours and glitters, however its slight orange tone made it perfect for summer nails. It laid on my toes the entire month, without even needing any retouches, and I painted my nails with it several times. It’s the perfect color to go with literally every outfit, and it’s stunning with a tan!
If there’s one thing that’s important to me about skincare is SPF, and if there’s one thing that’s essential about SPFs is the right consistency and scent, and this Hawaiian Tropic Sun Lotion ticks all the boxes. Never too thick but silky and hydrating, smelling deliciously sweet and disappearing in the skin as you apply it without any anti-aesthetic residue.
Shall we talk beach bags?! I’ve a thing for stripes, that’s for sure, and navy too. So when I spotted this Stradivarius beach bag (similar) in the sales, and knowing I’d have needed one as my previous beach bag was old, boring and pretty worn-out, I couldn’t help but get it! And I’ve loved it all month long.
During our staying there we spotted this amazing artist a couple of times and found ourselves standing behind his canvas admiring him working and illustrating the most different kind of people. I couldn’t help but notice the smile on his face when working, and since then we’ve decided we needed one of his works in our lifes. So we asked for an illustration of ourselves and we’re completely in love with the realist but fun result!
Also, this month I’ve discovered waterproof phone cases: what a gem if you don’t feel so sure about leaving your phones (and money too) on the beach while walking on the foreshore or immersing in the sea… but also for taking pictures in the water too!
On the homeware front, I’ve been after one of those ceramic eggs holders for a while, so when we spotted one in red in a cozy ceramics boutique, my eyes started shining! I can’t wait to see it in action in our future kitchen!
