It's been a weak summer overall when it comes to weather, however we can all collectively agree that the sun has finally decided to make an appearance on our cold big island the last couple of weeks (hallelujah), making us enjoy life again. 

Dramatic? Maybe. 
The warmth, the cocktails and the beach barbecues bring me joy; especially if like me you're based near the sea, this is the only time of the year you actually get to see it and enjoy it.

 With the climate spicing up, I have felt inspired to share some of my trusted summer beauty staples which bring back some glow and make me feel like a Californian girl. Maybe you'll be grabbing one or two of the below when browsing and reading blogs on the beach. Online shopping when tipsy on cocktails anyone?! 
Here we go...



The Dermalogica Multi-Vitamin Face Mask is certainly not a newbie in my stash, I originally bought this because I spotted a few bloggers rave about it on Instagram and after careful testing through winter as well to make sure it's worth the £50 price tag, I came to the conclusion that I love it as it leaves my skin feeling soft with a natural glow. Bonus points - it smells amazing. 

The Hempz Herbal Body Scrub is probably my favourite of the lot as it's been helping combat my back spots. This is a gentle but effective cleanser that helps get rid of dry and dull skin. It's perfect for any summer routine as it leaves you feeling smooth, soft and supple. I especially use this on my back where, as mentioned above, I tend to get breakouts and spots due to my sweaty gym sessions and overall oily skin. The scrub turns into oil when you rub it in the shower, which doesn't make it as rough on the skin as you'd expect, and it helps reduce redness. 


Another fantastic product is the Hempz Citrine Crustal & Quartz Moisturiser* which has been my go-to for after-tanning sessions as it helps retain moisture and hydration. The consistency is very creamy however it does get absorbed by the skin very quickly and keeps your body hydrated and feeling renewed for hours after application. I particularly love the subtle glow given by the quartz dust and once again, I am obsessed with the fresh smell. 


Zhuzh! Tan Accelerator is the bomb for all of us who can tan but sometimes want a little boost. I went to Spain for 3 days recently and I knew I didn't have enough time to come back with a full on tan but wanted to make the most of my time there.

I took this little gem with me to use on top of my SPF cream and man did it help. This is a fabulous lightweight, spray-on formula that enhances your natural tan. It's also nourishing and very easy to apply, leaving no stickiness or oiliness behind. 

Last but not least, a new comer to my routine, the Shea Moisture Detox Body Wash* and Body Lotion*
In contrast to the scrub I mentioned above, I use this all over my body, not just my back, and it's perfect to get rid of impurities without stripping your skin from its essential oils. It's great if you're on the sensitive side and suffer from flare ups or itchiness. You can feel the purifying power of this blend of shea butter, African water mint, activated charcoal and ginger which definitely helps detoxify, soften and even skin tone. You know it's a good product when you leave the shower feeling like a brand new woman every day. This product goes onto my 'need again' list. As for the lotion, it's amazing, however the one reason I won't rave about it too much is because it is sold out from their site and I am not sure if/when they will restock it. I have linked the body butter and here you can find the rest of the collection. Definitely worth a stalk.

I've been craving to discover some new makeup brands recently, as I have played it safe this year  and simply went back to my holy-grail products. We all do that, don't we? Experiment, try new things, then go back to what we trust the most. Lately, more than ever before, I have challenged myself to at least stick to cruelty-free and natural brands, so discovering Annabelle Minerals was almost like..a sign. 

The Brand 
Who are they? What is this company all about? 
Well, they're all about nature and natural beauty. Their mission is to make sure that every woman believes in the beauty that she has inside, which to be fair, in a world that profits so much from self-doubt, makes me want to like them even more. 

I found out that they use 4 mineral ingredients ( mica, iron oxides, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide), they're vegan and they're made in Poland. All of their products have a delicate formula which is suitable for all skin types and the ingredients used actually have care properties which is a fantastic bonus. 

The Foundations
They have three types of formulas and each one of them targets a specific skin type. Matte is for individuals like me with oily skin and spots (struggles are real). This formula helps regulate the secretion of sebum and contains antibacterial properties that help overall with the well-being of your skin. It also contains sun protection of level 15 (so, still wear your usual sunscreen underneath) and the coverage is medium to high. 
The thing I like about it is how natural and lightweight it feels. It covers the redness and the un-even skin tone however you can still see my skin underneath. 
I found the oiliness easy to manage as my skin actually gets less greasy now, so I only require one touch-up if I decide to head out somewhere for drinks straight after work. 

The coverage formula is, as the name describes it, high coverage and created for people with dry skin. The finish is satin and the sun protection level is 30. Finally, the radiant formula, provides coverage from small to medium and gives a lovely glow that makes your skin look fresh and healthy. 
I wouldn't mind having all three of these in my collection so I can swap and choose another one depending on the time of year and the look I'm going for. 

In the past I have been put off by mineral foundations because they're messy however I found this one a breeze to work with and their foundation brush is a must-have as it applies the product evenly on your skin in two minutes. 



The Concealer 
Now, I had no idea how good a mineral concealer would have been. I was reluctant at first to leave my trusty liquid one on the side and give this one a fair trial but now that I have I am very happy about it. I found out that thanks to the titanium dioxide, the coverage is extra effective and the zinc dioxide helps decrease any inflammatory conditions. 

The Blush 
This was the product I was a little worried to use as I didn't want to end up with clown cheeks if I lost control and applied too much, however the intensity is easy to regulate and if you go step by step you will avoid piling it on excessively. 
There's also a decent colour selection to satisfy most people's preference in terms of tones and finishes. Personally, I suggest the shade Sunrise as it suits most skin tones and it's a great every-day option. 

The Highlighter 
Probably the most exciting product I was eager to try; the combination of minerals with vitamin E, blackcurrant seed oil and sunflower seed oil helps to regenerate the skin, as well as tightening it and making it overall more elastic. 
The shade I got is Diamond Glow which is a cool, beige colour, and it adds a natural golden glow. I think it's perfect for spring and summer to brighten up your complexion even more and I cannot wait to use every day these coming months. 




I'd love to know if you've heard of this brand before and if you have tried mineral makeup previously.

Brand Focus: Annabelle Minerals

I have been in a style rut this winter and didn't really shop at all, but the last few weeks with the sun making a come-back, it's been lovely to look at my clothes with different eyes, hitting that refresh button and slowly starting to add bits my holiday wardrobe

I tend to only wear dresses and heels on summer vacations, or when going to a club, which to be completely honest with you is very much a rare occasion these days as I prefer to have a few drinks in a bar instead. My go-to date night look is actually the very popular "Jeans and Nice Top" combo, which is super easy to wear and considerably more comfortable than a tight dress. You can go for heels if there won't be much walking/running, however, if the date is somehwere you'll be bowing or mini-golfing then I tend to just go for converse or vans as comfort is key. 


I have two tops in particular at the moment that have been on rotation and I wanted to share with you. 


1. The Crochet Top


Of course you will still find me wearing black, even in the middle of summer, however the crochet-style makes this the ideal top to wear even in warm weather, as it's quite breezy and light. I love the square neck detail, it's a cut I never used to wear before but I can certainly appreciate now. The cropped style with the very tame lettuce detailing makes it girly and chic.

2The Wrap Top 


I found this top to be so cute, easy to dress up or down and very comfortable to wear as all wrap-style items are flattering on most body shapes. It's definitely true to size, so stick to what you would usually go for, and I recommend wearing it either on its own to show off the sleeves or layering a leather jacket with slightly cropped sleeves to show off the ruffle detail just a little bit.

The 'jeans and a nice top' look was the night-out slogan for most women everywhere during the late '90s and early '00s. For the last couple of years this trend has fully re-blossomed and I'm so excited to haunt down more cute tops to add to my foolproof collection. 

I'd love to know what your go-to date night look would be this season.

I moved to Bournemouth nearly a decade ago and whilst change is unstoppable, there's a lot that has remained the same over the years. By nature, I love to explore so I'd like to think that whilst I may have not tried and been in every bar/restaurant/attraction, I have definitely experienced most of what the town has to offer. 


 I thought it would be nice to do a post with my favourite spots and update this over time as new venues open to give anyone interested an idea of where to eat, where to drink and what to see that isn't necessarily reccomended on Trip Advisor. Summer is coming up and many people will venture down here in the South West to enjoy the sun, the sandy beaches and a lovely stay at a local  Bournemouth hotel


So without further due...let's get started!


Where to Eat 


For the vegans (and people who generally enjoy meat-less diets), there are many options, but the place that I would highly recommend is Mad Cucumber

Funky vibes, reasonable prices, good atmosphere and most importantly delicious food! My favourite on their menu is the bean chilli. 
A 30-second walk from there, you will find Twelve Eatery with their very chic and insta-goals interior, also serving vegan food. 

If your jam is Asian food, then do not worry, we have an outstanding variety of restaurants that serve the most delicious and authentic dishes. 
First and foremost, my all time favourite, Noodle Bar! I have introduced this place to all of my friends and I'm not even joking when I say that now all of them recomend it to their friends and families non stop. It's become a hit.
The portions are very generous, there's a different deal on every day and the service is excellent. I would suggest booking on weekends as it gets super busy. 
Alternatively, if you're more of a touch and go or take-away to the beach kinda person, you cannot miss out on Bentos - also known as the most low-key but best place to grab a Katsu Curry that beats the Wagamama's one by a mile. 

If you're more into Korean food specifically, then Kori and Koren Grill are the absolute top. For anyoe who questions how we know they serve authentic food - we ended up befriending a korean guy who was visiting town befire going back to his country and he praised the place for authenticity and even suggested us new dishes to try from the rather extensive menu. 


Last but certainly not least, for the lovers of authentic amazing Mexican food.. Casa GourMex is genuinely the hidden gem more people should know about. 

This tiny place is run by a lovely mexican man who literally brought his culture and flavours here to let us experience them whilst he single handedly makes the food in front of you. It's quite a funky experience but the homamde dishes he makes give you all the holiday vibes you need. 




Where to Drink 


Ah, the joy of bars. I have always prefered them to clubs so it's no surpise that I have visited pretty much all the ones in town. 

A little heads up - in case you didn't know - I do love rock music, so the places you'll see listed here will most likely appeal to a crowd who enjoyes music, live events and places that are nice but rough aroud the edges in a sense. 
Smokin' Aces is a little tucked away from the centre but the interior is lovely. Downstaires you'll find a little corner with a wall made entirely of Jack Daniels bottles where you and your friends can enjoy a catch up over, you guessed it, some whiskey. 

Along the same lines on the other side of town you'll find Zephyr and Anvil. The first one great as a night starter to get you tipsy and giggly and the latter is best after 2am when you're technically on your last legs but want to brave an extra drink with your friend who by that point just wants chips. 

Jokes aside the Anvil is great as well for gigs and a chill time until the 2am crowd arrives. 

If you're willing to venture a 5 minute drive from the centre and head to Boscombe, then you can enjoy one of UK's funkiest bars voted one of the best beer gardens in the country - Chaplin's! The interior here is insane, I may have taken a few too many photos to share...


For a less alternative crowd, 60 Million Postcards is great not just for their night scene but also during the day - with funny quiz days, a cute beer garden and a solid menu. 


If you're looking for somewhere interesting to drink in the day and I mean non alcoholic for the most part - my go-to place is Flirt. The decor is very different, the service is always friendly and lovely and the hot drinks and vegan home-made cakes are delicious. 

Tuesday is quiz night - it's not one to miss if you're around!

If you love your tea and want to up your insta game with a cute location  - the Vintage Tea Rooms are the best place to be. With shabby chic interior, old school music and most importantly it's dog-friendly!




What to Do 

Now, I won't make a massive list as most of you will come to enjoy the beach - and rightly so! However, if you like museums then I highly recommend you visit the Russel-Cotes gallery, especially if you're passionate about art and paintings in general. 


For science lovers, the Bournemouth Natural Science Society is fun and very educational. 


Something rather new in town is the Upside Down House, which quite frankly was a lot more fun to experience than I thought, which prompted me to add it to the blog post. Entry is £5 and you can get some pretty funny pictures! It's quite a unique experience. You also receive a 10% off voucher to use at Flirt Cafe which I mentioned above - score!


Last but not least; if vintage shopping is your thing, then you'll find a huge variety heading towards Boscombe. Two places I loved visiting are The Crooked Book and Vintage Emporium. The latter featured some creepy dolls and sinister paintings as well as old Chanel shoes - a very pleasing mix if you ask me! 

I'd love to know what you got up to if you visited Bournemouth recently and as more places become a favourite of mine I will make sure to update you all by adding them to my list here.
