ESSENTIAL SUMMER MUST-HAVES

“ALL THINGS
Good, ALL THINGS MAGICAL
HAPPENS
BETWEEN THE MONTHS OF
JUNE AND AUGUST”

Sunscreen

Sunscreen is your best defence to maintain healthy, glowing and wrinkle-free skin. We love Vita Liberata’s Passionflower & Argan Dry Oil Mist dry oil in SPF50. Made for hair, face and body. Infused with Vitamin E which helps to protect the skin from ageing radicals, the lightweight formula not only protects but perfects all in one. vitaliberata.com

      

Wide Brim Hat

Keeping a wide brim hat on hand is absolutely necessary, especially in the midst of the brightest hours of the day. I have a habit of keeping a rollable hat and a scarf in my bag for moments between hot and cold, bright and sunny.

We’re so in love with our new whimsical and equally classic beach hat by Bits and Pieces. Not only will its wide brim shield you from the harmful rays, with its personalized message you can now say what’s on your mind. Our second choice,…Cocktails, please.

Mosquito Repellent

Let’s face it, nothing ruins your glorious legs than patchy, itchy bug bites that won’t subside without leaving a mark. Intelligent Nutrients is the most natural (USDA organic ) choice. Far from the typical citronella bath, this spray surprises your senses with warm, woodsy notes of cedar and clove along with fragrant top notes of refreshing peppermint, herbaceous lemongrass and flowery geranium. intelligentnutrients.com

Summer Shade

A little retro, a lot of cool, and even more attitude.. These special edition sunglasses by Le Specs X Adam Selman are all the rage with models like Gigi and Kendall. lespecs.com

Lips & Eye Care

Keep the delicate skin around your eyes and lips pretty and moisturised with La Prairie’s Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection, formulated with Cellular Complex, doubles as a lifting eye cream-gel and a protective lip balm. All encased in a handy compact-like case, Love! laprairie.com

The IT Bag of the Summer

We took notice of this structural bag by Cult Gaia back in our Christmas issue. With its new colour palette (think pink, white, tortoise and more!) and a sturdier, shinier acrylic finishing, this bag has all the makings of “IT Bag of the Summer”.
