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!

A Firm Favourite: Soap & Glory’s Up-toned Girl Review

Hey there everyone! Summer is just around the corner and I’m getting beach ready! Apart from cleaning up my eating habits (there’ll be less chocolate cookies in my cupboard for a while!) and hitting the gym, I’m also testing out a firming product for the first time ever! Soap & Glory’s Up-toned girl is a body lotion with a difference and, when applied daily, it smoothes the skin and firms up troublesome areas. Here’s what I thought of the product:

Packaging: 5/5

Up-toned girl comes in a convenient pump bottle and, as ever, I love the cheeky vintage pin-up on the packaging. I also like the stylish colour scheme and the luxurious look of the pink and silver design.

Smell: 5/5

The product contains coconut, almond and grapeseed oils and has a fresh, mildly fruity scent.

Performance: 5/5

Up-toned Girl has a light formula which absorbs well into the skin, leaving even the least moistured areas feeling soft and well-cared for; a must in the dry Summer weather! I loved how Soap & Glory’s illuminating ‘Flatterspheres’ gave my skin a healthy and natural Summer glow.

Up-toned Girl is an excellent body lotion, even without its unique selling point; Soap & Glory’s ‘Self-Taut Technology’, a secret formula which firms, tones and moisturises the skin. Now, when it comes to toning, nothing can beat a healthy diet and frequent exercise, but I am pleasantly surprised with the results of this product.  Over the last two weeks, the cellulite on my legs has cleared up considerably and my skin is feeling so much softer! I will definitely be re-buying.

I hope that you enjoyed today’s review and that you’re enjoying the Summer weather wherever you are. I’d love to know; what are your Summer beauty must-haves?

Until next time!
