Summer Favourites

Summer 2016 is over, but on the bright side we have three months ahead of autumnal goodness. We thought what better way to say goodbye to summer than do a roundup of everything we've been loving these past few months?


Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation | £7.99 you can buy here

This was my holy grail last summer, and I've been looking forward to wearing it again this year as I only have tanned shades. Since I developed a tan (that is quickly fading) I have been falling in love with this all over again. It is medium, buildable coverage with a satin finish - and it genuinely lasts ages.

Handwritten - Shawn Mendes

I didn't want to give in to the teenage hype about Shawn Mendes, but I can't lie this album is pretty good. I don't love every song, but songs I do love include: Never Be Alone, A Little Too Much, Crazy and Aftertaste.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald 

Something you might not know about me is that I aspire to have so many books when I'm older, that I have a whole room dedicated to them, with walls lined with tall bookcases (including some in the sitting room etc). I love reading. At the start of summer I bought the classic The Great Gatsby and I couldn't put it down. The ending surprised me so much, I couldn't sleep all night because I couldn't stop thinking about it.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë 

This is a book I finished at the start of summer and ah I have no words, this book is such a classic. Its so much more than a love story: a tale of early feminism, friendship, and mystery about the attic in the house too. The book has so much depth and different subplots, I absolutely loved it.

Barry M Gelly Nail Polish 'Guava' | £3.99 you can buy here

Disclaimer: this polish is not the colour of guavas, haha. It is a super vibrant blue green colour. I love how tropical and perfect it is for summer and it looks so flattering too.


Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor 'Seduction' | £8.99 you can buy here
This has been my go to lip colour this summer. It is a pinky nude shade, a my-lips-but-better colour that I can't go wrong with. It smells like sweets as well! Also, the lipstick isn't drying at all which is great.

TIEKS - Sunshine ft. Dan Harkna

This song is my summer anthem!! I love Sunshine, it puts me in such a good mood. The music video is the cutest thing ever with all those dogs and puppies.

Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

This is the best thing that has been created. It's literally heaven in a tub. It has all my favourite things: chocolate, cookie dough and ice cream.

DKNY Red Delicious Perfume | £25 you can buy here

My favourite perfume; it smells so good although I can't describe the scent. But, I've been using it everyday since summer started. (if you want to read some truly fetus Phoebida posts.. I talk more about this perfume in my 2015 May Favourites)

Lynx Attract For Her Body Spray 

Since its summer, its hot and you inevitably start to sweat, and start to smell.. so to stay smelling good you need this! The spray is cold so its quite refreshing for summer, and it smells soooo nice.

What have been your favourites this summer?



  1. Really want to try the Rimmel foundation I've heard so much about it! And of course B&J cookie dough is the best flavour :) xx
