Life | The Summer Tag!!

Having actively had my blog for not too long, I have never participated in a blog post tag. Oh the shame it comes with it! So while reading blogloving on my morning commute as I always do, I found that Fee from Make Up Savvy (after seeing Georgina's from Makeup Pixi 3 who I believe is the original tagger) posted one and saw it as the perfect opportunity for my first of hopefully many blog tags. So without further ado, let's get rolling with it!

  1. What's your favourite thing about Summer?
    Definitely, most utterly, without a pause for thought - the weather!! If anyone knows me, I dislike the cold on a ridiculous level. I love feeling the warmth of the summer sun on my skin, light clothes and bright colours that is just on par with this beautiful season

  2. Do you have a favourite summer drink?
    Hmmm.. I don't think I do! There's nothing I drink specifically in the summer that's my go-to drink but saying that, I cannot say no to a Starbucks Frappucino! Also love grabbing a chilled drink out of the fridge whether it's a bottle of aloe vera juice (love that stuff!) or just chilled water. Perfect.

  3. Is there a location you like to go to each summer?
    Not specifically no. It's always nice to take some time away from the hustle and bustle of London town and chill on Brighton beach reminiscing about my uni days there but I'm also quite happy sunbathing in my garden - whenever I get round to mowing the lawn!

  4. Favourite make up look for summer?
    I'm not one that wears make up on a daily basis (I'm far too lazy to wake up earlier than normal to put the contacts in and do my face), but when I do, I love making sure that my brows are done as they are always one of the first thing people notice when I have sunnies on and a pop of colour on my lips with my current favourite at the moment being a hot pink lip  - watch out for a blog post on this soon!

  5. Dresses or skirts?
    Ahhh I'm actually debating about this in my head! Love the convenience of dresses and not needing to find a complementary top for a skirt but then sometimes I love trying to pair an outfit together!! Oooh, think it's got to be the dresses because you can find so many lovely summery prints that just screams summer is here again!! Think the absolutely best thing is not wearing tights again - absolute win.

  6. Sandals or ballet pumps?
    This one is a no brainer unlike the last question - definitely sandals!! Especially teamed with a bright colour on the nails for that added colour. My favourite style is gladiator with the zip up back and I basically spend my weekends in a pair of £10 but oh-so-comfortable Primarni gladiator ones I have fallen in love with.

  7. Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for summer?
    Up! All throughout the year my hair is up anyway in a simple ponytail because hair in my face annoys me like crazy but its probably permanently up in the summer because I always feel if my hair is down and covering the back of my neck, it automatically makes me feel a lot hotter than it really is! Crazy I know! Does this happen to anyone else, I can't be the only one surely?? 

  8. Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
    Well considering I still have not mastered the deep smokey eyes (anyone wants to give me a smokey eye 101 lesson??), I would have to say bold lips. Bold lips is something that I have only become a fan of with my comfort zone being light pinks bordering peaches, but after seeing the Revlon lip crayons in that hot pink, that was all I need to jump start this bold lips addiction. Next on the list? Bourjois lip crayon in Plum Russian...

  9. Favourite perfume for summer?
    Definitely light perfumes are the ones for me in the summer. I always buy EDT rather than EDP, not because I'm cheap, but rather because EDP's tend to give me a slight headache even if I only spritz a couple of times. EDTs are a lot lighter and my summer go to fragrance is Hugo Woman by Hugo Boss or my all time favourite, which doesn't need an excuse to be worn: Very Irresistible by Givenchy.

  10. Last but not least, favourite music for summer?
    Thanks to my recent upgrade with Vodafone, I currently have 6 months free trial with Spotify Premium which allows me to listen to pretty much anything without adverts. I've always been a fan of chart i.e. Top 40 UK (anyone remember TOTP back in the day? Think thats where it all stemmed from haha), but favourite music is probably one that has an upbeat track about it and definitely one I can sing along to!
Wow! So that's my first blog tag done - feels like I've achieved a bit of a milestone there! Let me know if you also do one, and again, major thanks to Fee from Make Up Savvy and Georgina from Makeup Pixi 3!

And in the true spirit of blog tags - I tag all of you to do this tag!! Let me know when you've done it, I love to hear your thoughts!

Disclaimer: Both summer tags are plucked from Make Up Savvy and Make Up Pixi 3's blog sites which both state that they can be used in their respective posts here and here. Muchas gracias to both for allowing me to use it!
