Happy Tuesday! I thought today I’d do something I haven’t done in a while – a tag! Nobody tagged me in this – in fact, I just went and did a search for the Summer tag and pieced together some questions from a few different sources I found. As we head into the last full month of Summer (welp!), I thought this would be a nice break from everything beauty-related I’ve been posting lately. So, on to the questions!
Dream Summer vacation?
Spending the Summer in a large, air-conditioned home that sits on an ocean or lake with a private pool. Lounging around all day – reading, eating, drinking, going for dips in the pool. Going for long walks in the evening with Maggie. Having a private chef come by to cook meals a few days a week and eating every meal outside. Basically living the life of a celebrity. Sigh.
Favourite summer drink?
Non-alcoholic: Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade
Alcoholic: Joey’s Super Stoked Vodka Coke
Favourite BBQ food?
Beach or Pool?
This is a tough one because I enjoy both; I’d say generally beach but if it was my own, private pool, the pool wins.
S’mores or Ice Cream?
Ice cream, even though it doesn’t like me.
Fondest summer memory?
Being a kid and feeling like Summer would go on forever – now it seems to come and go with a blink of the eye.
Does your skin tan or burn?
How do you wear your hair in the Summer? (down, ponytail, ombre, dip dye, etc.)
I tend to wear it down unless it’s super hot, then it’s usually up in a messy bun. My hair is typically a little lighter and blonder as the sun tends to bleach it a bit.
Favorite summer nail polish?
Essie Lounge Lover
Would you rather spend a summer day outside in the pool or inside watching Netflix?
Outside in the pool, if I had one.
Sunglasses or hats?
I’m fair so technically both but if I can only pick one, sunglasses. I have very sensitive eyes and I basically can’t open my eyes outside without them.
What is YOUR song of the summer?
I’ve been loving In My Feelings by Drake; so catchy!
Do you have a summer bucket list? If so, share some things on the list.
- I wanted to take Maggie on a vacation this year – check!
- Order a patio set so we can eat meals outside – ordering this week!
- Keep my plants and flowers alive this year – so far, so good!
Bikinis, Tankinis, or One Pieces?
Usually a bikini but I’m actually on the hunt for a cute one piece, they’ve grown on me! Plus I could use that extra coverage right now (no Summer bod here).
Must have summer makeup product?
I know the answer should be sunscreen but that’s kind of boring. Lately I’ve been hooked on IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination but only applied with a damp Beauty Blender.
Favourite Summer scent?
Anything coconut-related. I love the smell of my OGX Miracle Oil Coconut Lotion and for an actual fragrance I’ve been using Comptoir Sud Pacifique’s Vanille Coco.
Favorite thing about summer?
I don’t know if I’m supposed to limit to one but I’m not going to:
- The longer days; I love waking up and having it light outside and having the sun set as I’m ready to go to bed
- The smells: freshly cut grass, impending rain, bbqs, fresh air
- Not wearing socks! Or boots. Or heavy winter coats.
- Eating al-fresco either at home or at a restaurant
