A Shi...pload of Me: The Summer Tag

Hey Lovelies!
Look at my cutie of a niece in the background :D
So I saw Jazmine over at Stupid Crazy Jazz post this tag the other week, and i'm on a total tag kick at the mo - wanting to do them all! :)
And yes, like Jazmine, I know summer isn't on the horizon yet, and the sun will probably come and go since we live in the UK, but summer as a whole is going to pop up on us pretty soon, since it's now nearly June, and i'd like to kick it off with this tag.

1. What is your favourite bronzer for the summer?
I've only just started wearing makeup other than mascara and a basic coat of foundation, but i've just purchased a load of bareMinerals (which you can see in my haul, here), and I really like the pure and luxe radiances that I bought, as they're real subtle tones for my skin colour and blend in lovely, to give me a natural glow.


2. You are relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on?

So i'm going to be really boring here and say a nice cold Diet Pepsi or a freshly squeezed orange juice. I'm not a big alcohol drinker.


3. What is your favourite summer lip product?

I do love a good lip balm to protect my lips from chapping in the sun, the Honeysuckle Honeydew flavour by EOS is my favourite, but my favourite summer colour is Bourjois Color Boost in Red Sunrise-I love it! 


4. Do you prefer the pool or the beach?

Definitely the pool! I do not deal with sand well for long periods of time! Last year we went to Tenerife with my family for my 21st and we spent my birthday on the beach cause the other people staying at the hotel were really rude, and it was the only time i've spent such a long period of time on a beach. I don't like the texture of sand, and I hate when it gets stuck in such random places, it never leaves-I swear whenever I move the bag I used on holiday, I still find sand! :'(. We went on holiday with my niece who was 16 months old at the time, and she put sand on me when I was napping, I woke with sand tanlines, little speckles all over my body......


5. Summer  = crazy hair! What is your must have styling product?

I'm really really lucky with my hair as it's naturally straight, doesn't frizz, and stays where I put it. I generally spend my time on holiday with my hair in plaits, in a ponytail, or in a very loose bun to keep it out of my face. Not really a styling product as such, but I really recommend No7's Hair Protect Spritz from Boots as it really kept my hair smooth after time in the sun, and the pool. It's supposed to reduce colour fade, natural or not, and protect it from salt and chlorine damage (which i'm pretty sure it did, as last year was the first time I used it on holiday and my hair looked a lot better after the week than usual).


6. Sunbathing or fake tan?

Sun bathing all the way!!! I hate applying fake tan, I always end up orange and streaky, and even if I don't, it fades into a streaky off orange colour on me-no fun! I do usually tan really nicely in the sun, especially with a soft breeze whilst i'm walking. 
Edit** I've just started using Palmer's Natural Bronze gradual tan, and it's the best one i've ever tried! No streaks, and i'm a lovely tanned colour :D


7. Favourite summer nail polish?

Dollish Polish's Bikini Bottom!!! I love the bright coral colour and flakies for the summer months.


8. Any summer traditions?

Not that I can think of....


9. Favourite summer scent?

Sarah Jessica Parker's NYC, I love the fruity fragrance. Or Escada's new Turquoise Summer, which might be my go to perfume this year.


10. Favourite BBQ food?

I don't really like bbq's, but if I go them I usually have a cheeseburger or chicken wings :)


11. What is your favourite summer-proof product?

Do hayfever tablets count? Ha, I can't get through spring or summer without them. But no, I've got to say Maybelline's Falsies Flared in Waterproof, mascara is the only product I try not to leave the house without-I think I look like a guy without it-I can go without foundation, as long as I have mascara on, and the waterproof one helps it last through the humidity of summer :)


12. Any summer vacation plans this year?

Unfortunately not :( saving up to make it to Paris or America in the next couple of years though!

I tag anyone else who'd like to participate, leave me your links if you do so! :) - Danielle x
