Ah July, how I have longed for your arrival, the long summer evenings, soaking up the sun and most excitingly of all preparing to jet off abroad! So as you can imagine here is a very summery edition of My Heart Desires…
The Classy Kimono – I adore Kimono style tops and I don’t think there is a better beach cover up than the simple white Kimono itself. This open back beauty is from those genius’ at Boohoo and is just £15 – perfect!
The Punchy Pout – I am on the lookout for the perfect holiday lippie and whilst this Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil from Nars might not go with everything in my holiday wardrobe, it will go with the majority which is good enough for me. With it’s proven long-lasting formula at £19 this will be a real summertime investment well made!
The Stocky Strappy Sandal – Okay, okay, so I don’t need anymore sandals, I know! But I do love these little darlings from next. They’re quite 70’s-esque with the wooden, platform sole and tan leather and will go with dresses and jeans alike. At £38 they’re not the cheapest, but from experience Next shoes certainly last!
The Bronzing Box – I love Hoola, I have done for years in fact possible a decade! In the summer this is my go-to glow-getter as it matches perfectly with my skin tone once I start to get a little colour going on. This little kit is perfect for your holiday kit with miniature versions of 5 Benefit bestsellers, best still the Do The Hoola collection is just £28.50.
The Surfs-Up Shampoo – On holiday my hair is a nightmare, it has a mind of it’s own. It’s naturally curly/ wavy/ frizzy/ unruly and it just generally spends the holiday getting on my nerves. However, from experience salt-water base does help in those emergency beach-to-bar situations so that makes this little kit from Bumble & Bumble quite attractive, even if the £18 will possibly only last the week. Maybe.
So there you have it, hopefully I might be able to feature a few of these in my holiday edit next month, but until then I’ll keep lusting!
What are your July must haves? I’d love to hear from you below and I’ll see you again soon, until then though x
