A couple of days ago, I was tagged (so excited – my first tag ever) by the lovely Mariel of Confessions of a Former Size 6 to write a Summer Lovin’ Tag post! So let us start and as boring, as it might be keep reading as you might have been tagged.
1. Summer lipstick you’re loving?
I recently did an order at ELF and immediately fell in love with this lipstick in the shade classy, perfect summer colour and it’s in my bag all the time. On a plus note, I was happy to discover that it is considered a dupe for Mac’s shade in Angel.
2. Summer nail polish you’re loving?
I do not do apply nail polish myself. I get my nails done professionally since I have extensions. So more than like it all depends on the mood I am in when I have my appointment with my nail tech … at the moment I am in the oranges, corals, pinks and lilacs, which all reflect the happy days of summer. However, I did purchase the Essence polish in the shade of Flashy Pumpkin, 145.
3. Bikini you’re loving this summer?
After that, the last two summers saw me, one pregnant and the other still not fully happy with my tummy situation. I was happy to see that the winter sacrifices paid off a bit and was able to step in a bikini, however, did not purchase one this year instead I opted to go for a Guess bandeau bikini in coral which I had for a couple of years and never wore.
4. Favourite summer Frappuccino from Starbucks?
Sadly we do not have Starbucks in Malta, however if we had I am sure that I would go for the Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino Light Blended (found exact name on the site … nerd … LOL) ….I love Cinnamon so I can only imagine it’s goodness … yummy!
5. Favourite fake tan?
I actually have two as I cannot decide between them one is the Dove’s Summer Glow medium to dark and the other is the Avon Skin-so-soft in medium to dark too. I alternate between the two since the two products are easy to apply and both are similar in colour.
6. Favourite summer song?
It might sound lame bit this summer I am loving Enrique’s Bailando – don’t know why but it gives me such a good vibe especially on a Monday morning on my way to work.
7. Favourite summer accessory?
As I had mentioned in a previous post here my favourite accessory has to be Yana’s necklace, which I seem to managed to include in most of my summer outfits. Love it to bits.
8. Favourite summer fragrance/perfume?
I have had Daisy by Marc Jacobs in Eau So Fresh for a while now. Always reminds me of my last visit to lovely Manchester. I do not use it very often and only specifically in summer and when I do I am always reminded why I LOVE it so much – with its base notes of musk, virginia cedar and plum; jasmine, rose, violet, litchi and apple blossom being middle notes; and grapefruit the green notes no wonder it feels so summery – the perfect scent for me.
9. Summer book you’re loving?
Unfortunately, even though it was in the top part of my goals list for this year, I have not done much reading lately, primarily because I have lots of TV series to catch-up with. I did try to make it easier for me to read by downloading the Cool Reader app on my tablet. Having said that, there is a book I started that is ‘Love unscripted’ by Tina Reber – we’ll see how long it will take me to finish it.
10. What are you most excited to do this summer?
Spending extra quality time with my little munchkin and partner, during the coming work shutdown in three weeks’ time.
