So, seeing as the holiday season is about to begin, and I am just back from sunny Lanzarote, I am going to tell you my essentials! Weather you are going far or just a local holiday, this is what I think you need!
First up you need to prepare!
No one want to go on holiday
*Nails not painted
So first things first, is paint your toe nails! I opted for neon pink! Looks awesome with a tan and is perfect for holidays!
Next a full body wax! Brow, underarms, bikini line and legs! Nice and smooth and ready for a tan!
Next thing i did was get some nails on! I opted for acrylic extensions and are done by LA Nails in Ballywalter! If you are near to her you should def go to her!
Here is what she did!
Then of course, I had a spray tan! I am naturally pale skinned and the last thing i was is to go on holiday pasty white. So I went to a local salon and got a tanned! They used California Tan. Even though they used the lightest tan, it was still quite dark but it was lovely. It also came off really well and not patchy and lasted about a week.
So now YOU are ready for you Jolly-days what do you need to bring with you?
MY must haves include
*Maxi dresses- You can never have too many! They are easy to wear, you can dress them up or down and can be worn day and night! They are easy worn with sandals and heels
*Bikinis- An obvious must have it you plan on basking in the sun
*Sandals- I love flip flops and gladiators. Perfect for going down to the beach and also or evening wear when heels are too much effort on your warm swollen feet.
*Snap backs- For keeping you cool (from then sun) and cool because they are the ultimate summer accessory! Here are my two fav snap backs that I have found on eBay (and I also own)
This one is cool and a bargain at £8.30
This spiked number is also a steal at only £6.41
*Lastly, but most importantly, not matter were your heading, any sunshine you need Sun screen! Fair Skinned people, like myself, are recommended to wear at least a SPF 15 rain hail or shine. My fav sun lotion is Malibu. For my holidays I stocked up on factor 30 and 20 in the oil spray. It smells of coconut and dries in really easy! It's also great for kiddies if they are out playing in the garden as its so easy to apply.
The RRP for this is £9.99 and can be found on the webpage for £7.99 BUT I was in a local chemist and got it for £2.99! BARGAIN! hehehe
Also this Hawaiian Tropic lip gloss must have a) protects your lips and b)gives you a sexy gloss finish c) smells divine, and retails abound £2.99, a must have if u ask me!
So there you have it, my holiday must haves! What is in you travel bag? Are you going abroad or you staying local?
Cant wait to hear from you all and thanks for reading!
