Summer Holiday Essentials*

As I’m sure you all know by now if you read my blog regularly or follow me on social media, but me and Kieran have not long got back from our holiday together to Porto Santo. It was an amazing holiday and I would definitely recommend checking Porto Santo out if you’re after a chilled and relaxing holiday. So today I thought I would share with you my Summer Holiday Essentials and the things I have to take on holiday with me (apart from the obvious like clothes, beach items etc.)


A camera is 100% an essential to take on holiday for me, especially this year as I vlogged our whole holiday – you can check it out here!  Also, I’m just starting to really get into photography and what better place to begin to take your pictures than on holiday. I’m actually looking at treating myself to a new camera and Panasonic have actually launched a new line of compact 4k cameras – The Best Compact Camera Panasonic, which look amazing to take pictures on, the photographs on their website are amazing quality.

A Good Book! 

A holiday is my time to relax, and what better way to chill out and pass the time lounging around the pool than reading a good book. When we were away this year I picked up two books from the same author – Liane Moriarty. The book I started reading is called Truly Madly Guilty, and I was hooked! I’ve actually not finished it as I don’t find the time to read when I’m home but it’s a really good book and I am slowly making my way through it!


Iconic London Illuminator Drops

You guys are probably going to think I’m so stupid for mentioning these but they’re amazing and there wasn’t a day when I was away that I didn’t use them! There are so many uses for them and if I wasn’t wearing them as highlighter on my face throughout the night, they were definitely on my shoulders, chest and legs to make me look glowing all night! This looks amazing in pictures too and makes your skin look so healthy. I would also just add a tiny bit of them on my face throughout the day so even though you’ve got no make up on, you’re still glowing.

As well as reading a book by the side of the pool, I love to take my iPhone with me and put some headphones in, lay in the sun and just relax whilst listening to some music. I love to create my own playlist and just listen to my favourite songs whilst sunbathing.


I’ve never been a fan of the sliders trend, until I found this pair on the Ego website – you can find them here! They are so cute and girly which is what drew me to this pair straight away! I love the colour on them and I think the bow just adds a little something to them without looking too much. And even though I’m back from my holiday now, I still can’t stop wearing them!
