Waaahayyy Summer is FINALLY here - well it was, when I first typed this intro it was here anyway, its gone again now (shock) as soon as us Brits get the slightest sight of the big yellow ball in the sky we are the first to whack out the flip-flops, get the BBQ going and make barrels full of Ice Cold Pimm's (at this point its normally only 18°c). I'm glad I can finally introduce you to some summery items in this months favorites, including some beside the sea side biscuits & a delicious summer cocktail mixer.
If you haven't get heard of the Biscuiteers, you are certainly in for a treat. I'm sure just looking at the pictures have given you enough mouth-watering pleasure to find out more. Well, each biscuit is hand-iced by the talented icers based in London. You can choose from a huge selection of hand iced biscuits, cakes and chocolates with a theme to suit every occasion. My box shown above is called the Beside The Sea-Side biscuit tin and retails for £39.50. However if the seaside isn't your thing there are boxes for Teachers, Birthdays, Thank You's, Sports Tins, Baby Showers, Weddings, Get Well Soon, I could go on and on and on. You can check out the full range HERE. There are also an array of personalisations that can be made to the biscuits, along with a variety of boxes, sizes and biscuit amounts, to suit all budgets.
I also must add as hard as it was to eat them (they are just too pretty!) They really do taste amazing to - I thought due to the icing they may be a little sickly, but the icing fairies at the Biscuiteers really do know what they are doing, and each biscuit really tasted DELICIOUS! (yes we have eaten them all, oops).
They also are beautifully packed meaning my biscuits made it to my door in perfect condition, without any breakages.
Be sure to check out the site HERE & pick some up for yourself.

WILLOW BODY SCRUBS
To ensure your skin is looking summer ready I had to include a body scrub, this month and I can imagine for the foreseeable my favourite has been my Willow Body Pomegranate and Dead Sea Salt Scrub. This 100% vegan and cruelty free scrub not only leaves your skin looking/smelling/feeling nice, it also treats it. It helps targets problems such as Eczema, Dehydration and psoriasis. Unlike most scrubs I have used before it also leaves your skin feeling so moisturised, due to ingredients such as Jojoba Oil & Vitamin E. If that doesn't already give you enough reason to pick one up, them I'm sure the oh so Instagramable packaging could help to! Willow Body have nailed it! Get yours HERE

REN - Flash Hydro Boost
REN have come back better than ever with a fabulous new launch, the Flash Hydro Boost (available in stores from September). I have been lucky enough to try out this exciting new product, and I can't wait to share it with you because to put it simply, YOU NEED IT!
Designed as a hydration booster the product promises to draw in water, locking it in the skin for a instant hydration effect. Its so easy to use, but different to anything I've used before. You simply apply it all over your cleansed face. Following this you then wet your hands and gently massage in the product until its completely gone. This locks the moisture in & instantly leaves your skin feeling so plumped! You can feel the difference straight away. I'm excitied to continue use as over time it reduces aging in your skin. You can find more information, or make a pre-order HERE.
Keds - 100 Years of Keds!
Can you believe it, Keds have been around for 100 years! They must be doing something right?!
The reason I just love this brand is the simple, classic thrown on style they allow you to have. You are able to chuck on the most comfy shoes, whilst still feeling stylish and put together. They are great pieces throughout the year as they can be worn with jeans, or super cute on a hot summers when you want to dress down your summer dress. You can get them in (literally) every colour/design imaginable, meaning there is a pair for everyone.

The Body Shop
In the summer heat the last thing you want to be doing is having to apply heavy makeup, because lets face it, even with the best setting spray in the world and a brush full of powder, you still end up looking like a hot mess. I have been on a mission to get my skin clear, and be able to go foundation free without feeling so self conscious. The Body Shop, clear skin superheroes have really helped me do just that. Here are my MUST have clear skin products:
1. Tea Tree 3-in-1 WASH SCRUB MASK. RRP £8.00
This has to be my favourite product of them all, this super quick 3-in-1 product is a no-brainer. It can be used as a wash, where the foaming clay removes any excess oils/dirt. You can use it as a scrub, I love how gentle the scrub feels yet you can still feel it working, reducing the appearance of black heads and unclogging those pores! Finally you can also use it as a mask, simply leave on for 5-10 minutes until dry, it tightens pores, cleanses and mattifies your skin. Why buy tonnes of products when you can have them all in one?
2. Tea Tree Anti Imperfection Daily Solution RRP £12.00
This little bottle promises so many amazing things, and it has really delivered for me. After just two weeks of using this solution every morning and night my skin feels and looks, smoother, clearer, softer, and most of all the redness in my face has reduced, This has been something I have been suffering with for years, so I am so so pleased with the results. I am excited to continue using it to reap more benefits!
3. Tea Tree Oil RRP £11.00
This is a product I use when I actually get a break out, rather than for preventing them, If you apply to the problem area before you go to bed at night, you can honestly see a difference the next morning. Its a fast fixing must have!
After using all the above products, I can now say they are 100% living up to their name as Clear Skin Superheroes and I am now a little addicted to Tea Tree - it really works wonders. You can see all of The Body Shops tea tree range HERE. You'll notice how affordable all the products are to, which is fab as you are getting products that really do work.
