Holiday Essentials

Rain, rain, go away,come back another day! For all you lucky people who are escaping the miserable British weather this summer, I thought I'd give you a guide to my holiday essentials - a little shopping list, if you like!

1. Topshop Exaggerated Cats Eye Sunglasses - £16
Let out your inner retro goddess with a pair of cat's eye sunglasses. I love this pair from Topshop, they come in a cute candy pink or pastel mint shade. Whether you're on a city break or lounging around the pool, these sunnies are perfect.

2. Delph Sun Lotion - Available from Independent Pharmacies  
I have extremely pale skin, I always end up red as a lobster when on holiday but I think it's time to invest in a good sun cream. Delph has a range of sun lotions that span from factor 50 to 8. Their products are on the UK Drug Tariff, which means it can be prescribed by GP's, if it's good enough for a doctor it will be good enough for me! With built in moisturisers, shea butter and coconut oil, you can keep your skin lovely and soft while having reliable sun protection. I recommend slapping this stuff on and avoiding the hours that the sun is at it's highest. Stay safe in the sun!

3. Topshop Black Floral One Piece - £32
I'm a fan of one pieces, I'm not always body confident so a one piece is a great way to cover the wobble bits. I love this one from Topshop, ticking two trend boxes - floral and retro inspired. You may also want a cute cover up, this Topshop White Embellished one is adorable, team with sandals to take you from the pool to the bar.

4. Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser - £33
Light coverage tinted moisturisers are ideal for hot weather, no one wants to be wearing a mask of make-up while in the sun, melting face is not a good look!

5. Max Factor Waterproof False Lash Effect Mascara - £9- £10ish
Your favourite waterproof mascara will keep panda eyes at bay. I adore Max Factor False Lash Effect so the waterproof one would be my only choice for this.

What are your holiday essentials?
Love Kat
