My Summer holiday is almost here and I can’t jolly well wait! Did Spring forget to send Summer the memo about making an appearance this year? When it is so gloomy and miserable here in the UK, I leave buying anything holiday appropriate up until the last minute. I usually get a few bits and bobs every year for my holidays from Debenhams, so when they asked me to work with them on a post it was a no brainer. They have everything you could possibly need for that little break in the sunshine you’re dreaming of.

Debenhams asked me to pick out a few things they have to offer that I would throw in my suitcase and jet off to somewhere lovely with. I can’t shy away from anything tropical print or rose gold at the moment, hence my choices! The halter neck swimming costume is a shape I haven’t worn before but is super flattering. The print on this piece is beautiful and very on trend at the moment. The sandals are a dream! From ‘Faith’, and in the most stunning rose gold crossover design, I think I may just be wearing them all summer. The colour goes with everything and they are immensely comfortable. Faith have always been a favourite shoe brand of mine – I even got my wedding shoes from them at Debenhams! The choices are endless.

Now obviously when I go on holiday, an overwhelming amount of my suitcase is taken up by beauty, skincare and bodycare. I love taking a body scrub away with me. This one from Kiehl’s is a big old boy which I will be decanting some into a little travel pot! The grapefruit scent is heavenly and this is a scrub scrub. By that I mean that it actually exfoliates my skin rather than just polishing it. Perfect after a day in the sun, before popping on half a bottle of after sun!

Too Faced are another one of my favourite brands available from Debenhams. I am hoping to do a ‘full face’ video using just their products so do let me know if you would like to see that! The heart shape packaging takes me back to my Polly Pocket days! I have the shade ‘Ray of Light‘ which is more rose golden, but they have a cool toned and a gold toned one too. As far as highlights go, it’s a lovely and smooth formula which appears quite subtly on the skin.

The last item is a holiday essential and quite frankly, I have never owned a pair of sunglasses so beautiful before. These are a real luxury for me, but the hype is real. Ray Bans are the most popular sunglasses brand I know of and it’s well deserved. I went for a silver frame because they are incredibly different to anything else I own. I also love the contrast of the silver against the golden pink lenses. A lot of you have been asking on my social media and videos lately where my glasses are from, and they were these babies.
