The 'Summer' Tag

Happy Thursday readers! Bit of a different post from me today but I read this today over at Laura Louise Beauty and what with the weather being absolutely stellar down here on the south coast I thought I'd get into the summer mood with the 'Summer Tag'. I hope you enjoy reading, and if you decide to blog this tag - please leave me a link in the comments.

1. What's your favourite thing about Summer?
Everything! I love how everyone is so relaxed and just that bit happier. I love al-fresco anything and I love not having to worry about being cold when I dress in the morning. I love being outside, which is all the more often in the summer months.

2.  Do you have a favourite Summer drink?
For the heat I absolutely love Iced Tea! When I was working out in Kos for the summer, nothing refreshed me more in the 40 degree sun than a cold bottle of Liptons (with peach). I'm really disappointed that Costa have stopped doing them because they also did a lovely raspberry one.

3.  Is there a location you like to go to each Summer?
Marbella is my spiritual  home! I go there for at least a weekend almost every summer, I love the town and the vibe by day and that you can get your party on in the evening. And it feels so classy compared with other party destinations. I'd love to go on more holidays, the greek islands are very special to me and I'd love to go to Ibiza and Hawaii - better keep saving.

4.  Favourite makeup look for Summer?
Like most people I'm sure, I don't wear much makeup during summer because the sun does wonders for your skin. I favour a tinted moisturiser, lots of mascara and a nude glossy lip!

5.  Dresses or skirts?
Hmm... This is a tough one because I love both. But dresses - just because they're so easy.

6.  Sandals or ballet pumps?
I love to hate ballet pumps, they look horrible and are so hard on your feet but are so easy. I'd definitely choose a nice pair of gladiator sandals any day (as long as I have worked on my pedicure!)

7.  Hair up or down for Summer?
I'm not a hair up girl at all but occasionally when the heat is just too much I go for a sporty high pony. On the whole I prefer down with some kind of headband/garland to keep the hair off my face.

8.  Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
Definitely smokey eye! I always experiment with bold lips but I think my eyes don't look great without too much on them. I love changing up the colours on a smokey eye for every outfit.

9.  Favourite perfume for Summer?
It's not actually a perfume but I love 'So Kiss Me' in summer as it just reminds me of summers as a teen with my friends out without a care in the world. As a grown up perfume I love Hugo Boss Orange for women it's light without being too fruity or floral (both of which I don't like).

10.  Last but not least, favourite music for Summer?
On the whole I love all the big summer R&B and dance that comes out because it's great for dancing on a beach with your friends. I have to say my favourite summer song to blast out in the car has got to be The Ataris - Boys of Summer (I can seeeeeeeeeeeee you, your brown skin shining in the suuuuuuun) - it's so perfect lyricwise and The Ataris just add the kick ass thundery guitar that's great for blasting.

So thats just about got summer covered, if you enjoyed this post please do follow me on Bloglovin' or say hello on Twitter.
