Summer Favourites 2014


Hi divas!

Here in the Southern Hemisphere summer is almost going out the door. I have had a great summer in my home town, Cape Town. My favourite things to do is obviously going to the beach, shopping and enjoying festive season activities at the V&A Waterfront Mall and harbour and hot summer night parties in Long street. There are some beauty products that I have really enjoyed this summer and have been using them religiously. So I thought I would share my summer favourites for 2014 with you:




1. Clarins 50+ Sun Wrinkle Control Cream For Face
I did a review on this cream last week. You can read it here. The cream is a real miracle worker for me this season. It protected my skin from sun burn with its high 50+ SPF and it is the perfect moisturiser to use when applying makeup in smelting hot days.

2. The Body Shop Shower Gel in Vanilla Bliss
I adore all things vanilla. It is my favourite scent. This vanilla body wash is milky in texture and is perfect to use after a long hot day in the sun. The shower gel is very luxurious and soothes tired skin. I feel pampered and relaxed after I use it.

3. The Body Shop body butter in Mango
I am not a big fan of the actual Mango fruit but this body butter smells so amazing it actually makes me want to drink a mango smoothie. The scent reminds me of a tropical island; sweet, fruity and exotic. The body butter is light and moisturises my skin perfectly.

4. John Frieda Frizz-Ease Conditioner
I hate blow drying my hair in hot weather. I prefer to leave my hair naturally curly and rock some beach waves. I like to use the John Frieda Conditioner for curly hair as it moisturises my curls without weighing it down. My hair looks bouncy and curly without the horrible frizz.

5.  Stila Set Illuminate Baked Powder Trio
I love all things Stila and this is actually my favourite Stila product ever. The powder gives me a beautiful summer kissed glow. I love to add it on the apple of my cheeks to illuminate and accentuate my cheekbones... because I really don't have cheek bones. Lol

6. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sorbet
Ooh ladies, this lip butter rocks my socks! This colour just screams Desle. It is a bright hot pink which resembles a watermelon shade. I love wearing it on summer nights when I go out for drinks with friends. It is a shade for someone who loves to be noticed in a crowd.... Uhmm, that's me! :-)

7. Nails Inc in Marylebone Lane
The red glitter nail polish reminds me of Christmas and festive parties. If you want to add loads of glitter to your outfit in a classy way this nail polish would be perfect for you.

8. Rimmel Salon Pro in Brit Pop
I reviewed this awesome blue colour nail polish last week over here. I am absolutely in love with this fun colour. It definitely turns heads when I wear it. It is so bold and bright which is perfect for summer

9. Pretty Bows
Bows are the prettiest accessories to add a girly vintage charm to any outfit. Wear it in your hair, pin it to your clothes or your bag for a cute and whimsical look. My studded black bow is from Mr Price.

10. H&M Arm Candy
I bought these beautiful bracelets in Qatar and have been wearing them with all my watches. I love that it can be worn with any outfit. I like to mix and match accessories for different playful looks.

11. Burberry Summer Perfume
This scent is so beautiful it literally gives me a high when I spray it. I have received many compliments when I wear this gorgeous perfume. It has notes of lily of the valley, freesias and rose. It is a citrusy scent which has hints of pomegranates and mandarin orange. And it's Pink! Hello!


 Hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what your favourite summer essentials are below.

Lots of Divalicious kisses.

I need to get some of that Fizz Ease! I hate that I have been blow-drying (limiting my use of the GHD) all the time! Thanks for sharing babe x
