Aloha my lovely friends,
long time no see. I had some trouble with my webhoster/blog. It took a while for me to solve them, and I had to ask friends for help, but I made it. Finally 🙂 🙂 And I have great news for you, I have a new domain name frommarinawith.love – ♥
Besides that I also have a new summer post for you. It’s all about my must have essentials during summer time. I bet everyone has a product which saves their lives. I have 7 in total. I cannot imagine summer without them. They save my life every year, or whenever I am in a hot country.
This is my number one essential for summer. I have this trick from my mum. She always used to have a little bottle of babypowder with her. When I was little my mum powdered my body with it and it cooled me down. Nowadays I put some of the powder under my armpids. Since I am using a deodorant without aluminium I sweat a lot, and the babypowder tries to keep it dry. But babypowder is an allrounder. I sometimes use it for my greasy hair as well. A tiny amout of it on my hair and massage it, until I cannot see the white powder anymore. You should start doing some research on this little magic essential. Soon you will find out how it will increase your survival chances during summer time 😉
2. Summer hats
I looooooove wearing hats. No matter if it is winter or summer! During winter time felt hats are keeping me warm and during summer time straw hats are protecting me against the sun. To be more precise, they are protecting my hair. This year I decided to get a smaller version. Although the XXL straw hats are really in fashion right now. After the models on the catwalks wearing the oversized hats, you can see them on the heads of almost all influencers and bloggers. But trust me, even the smallest ones will give you enough shade on hot summer days.
3. Sun glasses
80% of the time during summer I am wearing sunnies. I am always carrying them within my bag, and every year I am treating myself with a new pair of sun glasses. I love them. No matter in what shade, colour, or size! I am quite lucky that I have a face shape which suits a lot of sunnies. However, tested UV protection (pay attention to the CE mark!) is essential to me. Hardly any other accessory offers so many possibilities and transforms even a simple jeans look into a fashion statement. This is why sunnies are a summer essential to me. I love them ♥
4. Water bottle
Drinking water is so essential during the summer! Well, not only during summer but during this season you should definitely drink more water! With my new thermosbottle I can keep my water cold for at least 12 hours. This saves my life. I hate it when I am drinking warm water. Eew! During the summer I like to put some mint inside my bottle so it is more refreshing, and it tastes so yummy. But you have various possibilities. You can put fruit inside as well. I think I will show you some infused water options soon.
I use them so so much during the summer time. OMG! You cannot imagine! For a more refreshing effect I put them in the fridge so they have super super cooling impact on my face. With my sheetmask I release everything and forget the world for 15 minutes. This is pure luxury for me. Besides that they are great for your skin, since it is thirsty as well. But please, do not forget the time. Because if it is to long on your face it will absorb moisture and your skin will start to dehydrate.
7. Magazines or easy read
I enjoy reading a lot. But during the summer time I want to read easy reads. It is very hard for me to concentrate that long when it is too warm. So I enjoy a brisk summer love story, and keep the dark thrillers for winter time. Sometimes I ditch books and prefer magazines. Especially when I am at the beach. I don’t mind magazines getting wet. And another advantage is that I get informed about the new trends for the upcoming seasons.
Now you know what my summer essentials are. I hope I have inspired you, and you are using one of my essentials. What about your essentials? Tell me your secrets 🙂
