Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

My Tips on Hair Care Throughout the Summer Months

Crazy humid summer weather can cause havoc for your hair. So I have put together my tips on hair care throughout the summer months. Especially if you have long thick hair.

This sticky hot weather we been having in the UK, are you having fun? Me, personally have had enough and ready for some slightly cooler temperature. It was not pleasant when we went to the Horniman Museum and Gardens last week. I spent the entire drowning in my own sweat (mm lovely!) and just ended looking like melted ice cream.

I’m not complaining, I promise you I wouldn’t do that. So moving on.

That day trip where I was just a real sweaty mess, cause havoc on my hair. Urgh, something about the heat just makes my hair look like Diana Ross. Not that I’m saying Diana Ross hair is bad.

But on me, it is bad! The heat just loves to fizz my hair up. Which also cause another problem, due to that I have long thick hair and it likes to get itself into a tangled mess. On a hot summer day, my hair generally looks like I have been running through a hedge backwards.

Does anyone else have this problem? Isn’t it just a nightmare? Well since that ‘Diana Ross hair disaster day’, I have been teaching myself a few hair tips on hair care throughout the summer months. And I thought I would pass them onto you, especially if you are like me and have long thick hair that just fizzed up in heat.

So without further ado. Here are my tips on hair care throughout the summer months.

Ponytails:

An obvious tip, but I felt I should mention it anyway. In this heat (or any humid climate), don’t wear your hair down as it will make you warmer and also your hair sticky. Tie it up in a ponytail and that way you will cool down instantly by airing your neck and head.

Use Dry Shampoo:

Especially if your hair starts to fizz up. Smooth it down with dry shampoo. Plus, also if you don’t have time to wash your hair – it does help give you glossy hair and let you style it easier.

No Hairdryer:

I found a hairdryer in summer, make my hair all tangled and dry. So ditch the hairdryer for….

Air Dry Hair:

Some people might be against this idea, but I have always air dried my hair, especially in summer. While air drying, put the hair up in a towel to keep the airflow on your neck.

Use tepid/warm water for hair washing:

The last thing you want is a hot shower on a summer day. So to cool down, have a cool tepid/warm shower and wash your hair in that temperature. I find it makes my hair very smooth.

If air drying or no hair drying isn’t an option – then use a hairdryer brush:

Hairdryer brush is basically a hairdryer that doubles up as a hairbrush. So you can brush and dry your hair at the same time. It’s magic. Ok, it isn’t really. But it’s the best hair device since the invention of a hairdryer.

It isn’t very powerful but has enough heat to dry your hair and doesn’t leave it fizzy. In fact, it makes it look like I have used a straightener as I make my so smooth and shiny.

This is also nice to use if you’re short of time.

Wear a hat:

Another obvious tip, but your hair can get burnt – just as easily as your skin. To protect and to prevent burnt hair (trust me I have seen burnt hair, it isn’t pretty!), wear a hat.

Try sun cream shampoo:

A neat idea that I never really tried before, sun cream shampoo. These are the shampoo that has UV protection. Some criticism that they leave your hair greasy, but my advice is to perhaps at the end of the day use natural oils to help rinse out the grease.

Trim your hair:

Just a little hair cur to take the hair off your shoulder, or perhaps trim the hair into a style that will allow more air to flow through the hair.

Spray water on your hair (that also contain essential oils):

If spending the entire day outdoors, then the trick to keeping a spray water handy or near you is pretty obvious. Have another water spray and use this for your hair, but perhaps add a few drops of essentials oils. Find an essentials oils that will work for your hair.

Those were my tips on hair care throughout the summer month. Do you have any of your own tips to add?
