Four Summer Holiday Favourites ☀️️✈️👜

The warm weather has come to Edinburgh this week and I’m celebrating by chatting about some of my favourite Summer buys.

1) Soap & Glory’s Glow Job Daily Radiance Moisture Lotion

Price: £11.00, 50ml

Glow Job is a tinted moisturiser which gives your skin a delightful summer tan, without your ever needing to step out in the sun. The product leaves skin feeling soft, subtle and well cared for. Also, the 50ml bottle is the perfect size to slip into your carry-on bag, wherever you’re headed this Summer!


2) Toms Canvas Shoes in Grey Drizzle 

Price: £41.99

These shoes by Toms are ideal for your Summer getaway. The lightweight canvas fabric is breathable and stretches to give your feet maximum comfort. Latex technology is used to ensure that your arches are perfectly supported, whether you’re strolling around Barcelona, or catching some rays on the beach.

Toms Canvas Shoes come in a wide array of colours to match your style and personality. Grey Drizzle is my personal favourite, as it can easily be incorporated into most outfits. And the best bit? For every pair of shoes you buy, Toms will donate another pair to a child in need. Fashion AND social responsibility? I’m in!

3) Soap & Glory’s Solar Powder Bronzer 

Price: £11, 9g

Solar Powder is a pigmented, blendable and long-lasting bronzer. A quick dusting of this powder will give you a rich holiday glow, long after your vacation ends!

4) Hotel Chocolat Iced Frappé

Price: £3.95

This delightfully chocolatey iced drink by Hotel Chocolat is the perfect way to cool off in the hot Summer weather. The frappé is made from Hotel Chocolat’s high quality artisan chocolate (who needs syrup anyway?!) The deep chocolatey flavour is rich, but not too sweet and the drink is topped off with a light cocoa whip (a rich chocolate infused cream). With flavours like Salted Caramel Brownie and White Chocolate to choose from, there really is something for everyone.

Have you tried out any of these products? And what are your favourite Summer buys? Until next time!

Equestrian Style: Tottie Ellie Endurance Jodhpurs Review 

This week, the lovely ladies at Tottie have sent me some of their amazing equestrian gear to try out.

Tottie is one of my all-time favourite equestrian brands . Their products are a winning combination of functionality, fashion and fun.

Today  I’m going to be reviewing Tottie’s Ellie Endurance Jodhpurs, which normally cost £39.99 and are now reduced to £29.99. Let’s  start with my first impressions.

Appearance: 5/5

The Ellie Endurance Jodhpurs are a classic Tottie product, balancing style and practicality. The jodhpurs are very flattering and their subtle palm leaf design is really attractive. On a practical note, their dark blue colour is ideal for hiding the dust and dirt that comes with riding and stable chores.

Comfort: 5/5

Described by Tottie as ‘riding tights’, the Ellie Endurance Jodhpurs don’t  have buttons or zips. As a result,  they are are extremely comfortable.

Moreover, the material is light, breathable and flexible enough to offer free movement while riding.

The jodhpurs feature inner knee patches, which gave my calves added comfort. I would definitely say that these jodhpurs are amongst some of the most comfortable that I own.

Fit: 5/5

My jodhpurs were a great fit. The stretchy material moulds to your body, ensuring both comfort and a flattering silhoutte.

Extras: 5/5

The Ellie Endurance Jodhpurs feature a small zipped pocket to the rear, which is ideal for storing your  keys and cash while out riding.

Accessories: 5/5

Aside from my lovely new jodhpurs, I also received some other  Tottie goodies to try out. I love my new Ampleforth Belt (£24.99). It is very stylish, combining quality leather with electric blue elastic panels. The leather gives the belt a luxurious  look, whilst the elastic makes it comfortable enough to wear on longer rides. The belt is ideal for  giving outfits an extra splash of colour and is also available in red.

I also tried out Tottie’s knee-length Pandora Riding Socks, which kept my feet wonderfully warm. The socks were nicely padded, providing comfort without bulk and they fit smoothly under my riding boots. For £11.99, you get two pairs of socks, one  pink and one blue.

2When I’m home in Yorkshire, I spend a lot of time hiking, as well as riding, and I’ll definitely be picking up a few more pairs of these socks in the near future.

The Verdict

I love the vivid colour and stylish design of Tottie products. Most of all, I love the  brand’s emphasis on comfort and performance. I feel that all 3 of the products featured in today’s review were value for money and I would definitely recommend them  to a friend.
