Summer Beauty Favourites

First up I've been loving the Impress Press-on Manicures, in particular the Accent range, these are an absolute life saver if you haven't got time to paint your nails but they need to look amazing for an event. The Accent range is great because they provide you with 30 gorgeous nails in one colour and then you get six accent nails that compliment the colour perfectly. They're super easy to use just give your nails a wipe over with the prep pad provided, choose the appropriate nails to match the size of yours, peel off the backing and apply. They last for ages, don't damage your nails when you remove them and come in a wide range of fab designs, if you'd like to give them a try they're available to buy from most Asda stores.

Next up is an amazing new product from my favourite tanning range St Tropez, the Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion saves loads of time in the morning and leaves me with a gorgeous natural looking glow in just three minutes. All you have to do is wash as normal in the shower then turn the shower off and apply the lotion which foams up so you can see where you've applied it, apply in circular motions covering your whole body and leave for three minutes which is just enough time to apply a hair mask or brush your teeth and them rinse off and pat dry with your towel. I love the results of this tan, it gives me a lovely summer glow and lasts really well.

As for makeup I've been loving the BD Trade Secrets range from Tesco, I'm obsessed with the Vital Skin Longwear Foundation and the Light Effect Concealer Pen which is just like the YSL Touche Eclat but much more affordable, check out the full range in your local Tesco store or online.

Lastly when I do actually get time to paint my nails I'm currently loving the OPI Hawaii Collection, the polish is amazing quality and lasts for ages on my nails and the colours are perfect for summer time. My favourites are That's Hula-rious! which is a gorgeous mint green and Aloha from OPI which is a really pretty coral.

Get Ready For Your Holiday With Chemist Direct

As a busy working mum I don't always have time to go out and buy all of the things I need, especially when it comes to getting ready to go away on holiday. There are so many things I need to remember to get and it's really helpful if I can get everything I need from one place and even better if that place is online so I don't need to drag the kids around lots of shops.

Chemist Direct have all of the toiletries you need to be totally summer ready and the prices are really reasonable, they also offer free UK delivery on orders over £40 which is great. Whether you're looking for razors, deodorant, suncream or even medicines they have everything covered and you can even buy in bulk which I love as it saves money and means I don't need to do the shopping as often.

 They even offer an online doctor service which could be really useful, so pop over to their website www.chemistdirect.co.uk and check them out.

My Summer Bucket List

There are so many things I would like to experience that I've so far never gotten around to doing so I thought it would be a great idea to create a summer bucket list of activities that I'm going to try and make happen this year.

First on my list is surfing, I've always wanted to have a go at surfing and Cornwall is one of our favourite places to holiday so having some surfing lessons in Cornwall would be amazing. I love the idea of spending time in the sunshine in my wet suit learning how to ride the waves and feeling a massive sense of achievement when I finally learn how to stand up on my board and not fall off straight away. It's such a cool sport and I think my kids would love to give it a try too, it's definitely a must try activity for my bucket list.

Next on the list is tank driving, what's not to love about driving a multi-ton military vehicle across some rough terrain or even getting to drive over and crush a car? I think it sounds like so much fun and I'd love to give it a try, many instructors who work on these kind of experience days are ex-soldiers so they can help to give you a real insight into what driving a tank for real would have been like and I'm sure they can tell you a few interesting stories too. I think this activity would be something I'd remember for many years to come and would be a wonderful story to tell the kids or reel off at a diner party after all not many people get to drive a tank.

Last on my summer bucket list is clay pigeon shooting, it's something I've seen many times on tv shows such as Made In Chelsea and it just looks so much fun. Standing in a field enjoying the lovely countryside and getting to learn a new skill sounds really appealing to me plus I'm pretty competitive so I'd love nothing more than to get a group of my friends and family together to come with me and then we can all have a little friendly competition and find out who is the best. It gets you outside in the fresh air and the most important part is that no actual pigeons get hurt as you're just shooting clay discs.

So that's my summer bucket list, hopefully I can try my hand at some if not all of these this year and learn a few new skills while I'm at it. All of these activities are available to book through into the blue experiences.

What's on your summer bucket list?
