Tag: Summer

The Summer Tag

Thanks to the lovely Kelly from Northern Roots (who is one of my sponsors this month, so do go and say hi) for tagging me! I've not done a tag in ages, but I really liked the questions for this one.

1. What’s your favourite thing about Summer?
The sunshine! I love a good blue sky sunny day and the feeling of the sun against my skin.

2. Do you have a favourite Summer drink?
Pimm's with all the trimmings, of course! Have you checked out my home recipe?

3. Is there a location you like to go to each Summer?
Not anywhere particular that I can think of, but I do love visiting National Trust spots, they're perfect for picnics in the lovely weather.

4. Favourite makeup look for Summer?
I love to look a little sun-kissed and as natural as possible in the summer. I always hope that a slight tan will do all the talking, so make-up isn't needed so much. I feel like I look so much healthier with a bit of a glow.

5. Dresses or skirts?
Dresses! I feel skirts can actually be quite restrictive. The more feminine and flowy the better :)

6. Sandals or ballet pumps?
I am a ballet pump addict and have been for as long as I can remember. I think feet are the weirdest part of the human body, toes especially, and I'm really only just coming round to the idea of sandals and open toed shoes. If I'm in a rush I'd always grab for the pumps.

7. Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for Summer?
I don't like wearing my hair up at any time of the year, I look like a pre-teen with my hair in a ponytail! I often pin the front bits up at the side to give it some lift and keep it off my face.

8. Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
I am rubbish at eye make-up. I'm a pro at mascara and I've just about cracked even eyeliner with a pen liner. I am atrocious at eyeshadow. I love a good bright, fun coloured lipstick for day time summery jaunts, or a bold red for nights out.

9. Favourite perfume for Summer?
I'm not one of those people who has loads of perfumes, in fact I'm quite the opposite, I just have one at a time - and I usually repurchase the same one for a few years too (creature of habit). Plus psychology tells us that familiarity of smell makes people trust you more, so I like to stick to the same scent. At the moment I'm on Calvin Klein Eternity.

10. Last but not least, favourite music for Summer?
Drum and bass, chill-out house with a sprinkling of dubstep thrown in for good measure.

I really enjoyed answering the questions in this tag, I feel like I got to write about some things you wouldn't have otherwise known about me! I tag some of my favourite blogs at the moment: Theodora, Lydia and Abby. I can't wait to see your answers! xo

I'd love your comments and thoughts below, or: @justrachblog //
