Spring and summer are my favourite seasons. It goes so far that I literally wear oversized clothing during autumn and winter every single day. Nothing wrong with that, I can wrap myself in my oversized sweater like a burrito. However, it isn’t much exciting as spring and summer clothing! Aside from floral dresses and stripes, am I sharing with you Loves my go to summer essentials that I always wear during summer.
The weather in the Netherlands has bipolar moments so, my number one item is a blazer. It’s perfect for those warm/cold days if you wear a jacket it’s too warm and if you go without one it’s too cold. Same goes with ballerina’s flats, without a doubt you will find a black pair in my shoes collection. As you all know me Loves, I like details! I was pleased to see the golden details on the back of the flat heel. Don’t forget the denim jeans, we ladies have a love and hate relationships when it comes to finding the perfect fit jeans. When we have one, we hold onto it like Frodo and his ring. Right Loves?
Sunglasses an item that is fashionable and practical in one. Perfect way to hide those bags under your eyes because you enjoyed the typical summer night a day before. Jewellery also belongs to my summer essentials list. Especially golden jewellery because it matches with a tan perfectly!
Share with me your essentials. Maybe I forgot a key piece!

I still enjoy from my late summer in the Netherlands after my holiday in Morocco. Even here the sun shines like the beginning of summer and I’m not complaining! Summer is one of my favourite seasons and I always take good care of myself more than the other seasons. This is my confession; I think it is because my energy level or better yet my happy thermometer is increasing.
The beauty product that I swear by is my all-time favourite rosewater but I wouldn’t be a beauty addict if I’m not trying other goodies out so I expended my fav list!
Let me start with a great beauty invention; dry shampoo. This goodie is ideal to use on warm days. You’ll sweat during your whole day no matter how many times you shower so to stay fresh and presentable spray dry shampoo on your hair namely on your scalp where the creasy part is. From my own experience whenever I use dry shampoo I wear my hair never loose. My hair structure is then different, like puffier. That’s why I prefer another hairdo like a ponytail, messy bun or a braid.
What I also like during warm days is not only a deodorant but also a body mist. When I was in Morocco this goodie never left my bag. I sprayed it during my day just for a quick fresh up before I shower. Because it is a body spray I use it easily over my whole body then perfume, it would be a shame if your perfume bottle gets sooner emptier because of it. Right Loves?
My face has its own routine that I stick with and lately I asked myself what am I doing to moisturize my eyes? Well, nothing! So I bought a hydro eye roller from my local drugstore to try it out. It contains caffeine, this ingredient stimulates your blood circulation and reduces puffy eyes. It also has hyaluronic complex to prevent dark circles and wrinkles. A great moment to start with because if you follow me on Instagram you would know I turned the big 27 last Tuesday!
I didn’t use a lot of make-up during my holiday or even during summer but when I do it I always finish it with a make-up fixing spray and honestly I thought it wouldn’t work, this goodie must be a fable. I guessed it wrong! It works perfectly and I recommend it to every Loves who are die hard make-up users!
The main reason I prefer no or a bit make-up during summer is because I have an oily skin. Whenever the heat touches my face I look like a melted vanilla cookie. To prevent an acne break out, which I suffered from many years is to use a sebum-reducing cream. The one I’m using contains salicylic. Salicylic combats the existing and the formation of new pimples and this goodie truly works! I use it as my day crème and the control stick of the same brand I use it only on pimples that are already there to dry them out
This is it Loves! Which products do you love to use during the heat?
