Finally, the summer is here, and I take the opportunity to show you my summer favorites 2017. There are products from the categories beauty/cosmetics, fashion, lifestyle and food/drinks.
Beauty summer favorites
The smell of coconut and summer blossoms always awake the holiday feeling in me. Of course, I stay with last year’s summer classic: Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc. The perfume is a real treasure on its own, this year I can pair it with the newly released body oil. I adore this scent.
When you follow my blog for a while, you might have noticed that I am a lip-care and hand cream addict. My summer 2017 lip-care product is Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 20 PA++. In summer your lips need SPF too. The skin of you lips is fragile and delicate. If you do not protect your lips from the sun, they can suffer from sunburn and crack.
A summer hand cream should be hydrating, soak in quickly and have a beautiful smell. The Molton Brown Coco & Sandalwood Replenishing Hand Cream is my choice this season.
Fashion summer favorites
I was looking for a new pair of summer shoes for quite a while. Since I am not a huge fan of sandals (I don’t like shoes showing toes), I was looking for slippers. Gucci has a fabulous choice of the Princetown Slipper, but I was looking for something different. Dolce & Gabbana always has fabulous fabrics. This season they have used Jacquard fabric for the shoes too. When I first saw these awesome slippers made out of black Jacquard, I fell in love instantly. The Swarovski-encrusted buckle adds a little extra.
Food summer favorites
When it is hot outside, I love fresh, crisp salad, tomatoes, cucumber, and vegetables. Usually, I have three different dressings prepared to have some varieties of taste. Feel free to add a topping like cheese, grilled chicken, fish, gambas, roasted seeds, or even fresh fruits.
Drinks summer favorites
You might have seen my blog post Homemade Lemonade. -This is my go to non-alcoholic drink.
A Gin Tonic in the evening (not every night) is very refreshing and delicious. Fentimans herbal tonic water, Brooklyn Gin, a zest of lemon and some ice cubes are my ingredients for a delicious drink.
Lifestyle summer favorites
Last week I upgraded my mobile phone. I had an iPhone 6 Plus and finally got an iPhone 7 Plus. I love to take pictures and have my iPhone with me all the time. The difference of the picture quality is tremendous. Not everyone is an iPhone lover what I tolerate. I use iPhones since generation 2, and I guess I am not compatible with another mobile phone 🙂
This summer I will get a lot of use out of my latest phone purchase and a lot of fun too.
