Summer Favourites

I always see ‘summer favourites’ popping up around the beauty blogosphere but very rarely see non-cosmetic products mentioned. To be frank, very little changes in my beauty routine from Spring to Summer so I have decided to give my non-beauty favourites some blog loving, instead…

When I’m not hot-footing around London I seem to be travelling to new extremely walkable cities, therefore practically live in Chelsea boots to do so. After my last pair met their overworn end, I chose to replace them with these little beauties and get complimented on them daily. They are slightly mod, a tan-boosting cream colour, and have the perfect little all-day heel.

Lucky for you, it looks like they’ve also just landed in the sale!

It seems like the majority of my favourites are pretty, travel-friendly things that make life easier. The Trendz Power Bank is no exception. Because my phone often acts as my second laptop, I run the battery out faster than the average tech head. I always have my charger on me if I’m out for more than a few hours but often find myself struggling to find places to charge up between meetings.

Put simply, the Power Bank can get my phone to 100% multiple times per charge. It’s a floral godsend.

Health hacks:
No matter how good my intentions are, leading a busy lifestyle gets in the way of my healthy lifestyle all too often. I drink litres upon litres of water and eat clean as often as I can, but love when I find little health hacks to make my efforts a little more consistent.

My two current faves are Source of Life® Green Lightning and Bioglan Superfoods Powders. Both are powder supplements that deliver a plethora of micronutrients in every scoop. Green Lightning is the more energising of the two with over 50 whole food concentrates and extracts, including fruits, vegetables, algae & herbs but the antioxidant-packed Bioglan Acai powder has the perfect ‘berry smoothie’ taste with the addition of super-healthy goji, pomegranate and blueberries.

Healthy treats:
I have developed a newfound appreciation for ice cream this month and while these three products certainly aren’t ‘health food’ they are far superior to all of their freezer food counterparts:
1) Lushice – Wait for it…cocktail sorbets. Each pot of Lushice is created using high quality fruit puree and juice sourced from the West Country, a dash of premium liquor, and clocks in at under 100 calories per 100ml, The Piña Colada flavour is life and they’re also completely vegan.
2) Wheyhey – Sugar-free and all-natural ice cream with 20g of protein per small serving cup. The added incentive is the xylitol (which is super healthy for teeth and gums). You will have definitely seen a pot or two pop up on my Instagram.
3) Remeo Gelato – Remeo uses 100% natural, high-quality ingredients and a process which means the product has 35% less fat than regular ice cream. The gluten-free gelatos taste as haute as they look (the transparent cases were designed by a fashion designer for Etro).
