My Sunny Favourites || Bits & Pieces + a Cheeky Giveaway!

Hello Lovelies,

It has really felt like summer today, my garden is lovely and sheltered so it is a warm little haven in which to lie and catch some rays.  As today has been so lovely I thought it would be perfect to pop up a favourites post of my sunny favourites. 

I love writing letters and cards, and think thank you letters are really important, one of my favourite packs of cards  at the moment are these MERCI cards from Paperchase.  

They don't seem to sell them anymore, but I think the Muchas Gracias ones are also fab, why not hop from France to Spain. 

Everyone needs a pair of sunnies, I will admit to having quite a few pairs, but my latest addition is these giant round one.  When I first saw them I didn't think they would be very flattering, but after seeing them on the lovely Tanya Burr I knew I needed them to be mine, the great thing is they are only £3.50 from George at Asda (so you can't really go wrong).

My next favourite is my Summer arm candy of choice, I love these Slim Satin Verditer bracelets.  They come in every colour under the sun, are perfect for stacking and are for guys and gals alike; because of that I want to give two of these bracelets away to my readers, (you will be able to pick your colours) all you need to do is enter on the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of the post.   

Liz Earle is my favourite skin care brand, and my favourite product has to be the cult classic Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, it keeps my skin super clear which is perfect for the warmer weather when you want to cut back on the slap!

I'm pretty sure I have mentioned this magic pot a million times before but I love this stuff.  It is my favourite moisturiser, it's really light and has a relatively high SPF.

I'm pretty darn lucky when it comes to my skin, I get the odd blemish but on the whole it is very clear.  So during the warmer months I like to wear a really light tinted moisturiser to let my freckles show through.  

This tinted SPF by Bioderma is amazing, it evens out my skin tone as well as giving me really good SPF coverage as I am rather fair and burn really easily.

My next favourite is the bomb dot com, it is the Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter which is probably my favourite lip balm of all times.  It is the texture of Vaseline which leaves your lips smooth as a babies butt and gives them a lovely tint.

To keep my skin clear I like to drink a lot of water, for something a little different it's nice to add some cucumber and strawberry, refreshing and tasty!

Although I was lucky enough to pop to Dubai in March, my tan has all but gone, so the St Tropez Evereyday Gradual Tan has been getting me through.

Last but by no means least is my favourite Essie polish, it is a rather hard colour to describe, it's a kind of nude/salmon pink and is called 'eternal optimist', I know it sounds gross but it's actually a really pretty shade that looks fab when you have a bit of colour! 

That concludes my sunny day favourites, lets just keep our fingers crossed and hope that the good weather continues.
