Hey everyone!! Hope your enjoying the lovely weather in London recently (apart from the hottest, unbreathable day of the year) Ha, anyways how is the weather where you are, wherever you are?? :)

The recent warm weather has got me into the summer/holiday mood and I thought I would share with you my top 5 summer essentials, which aren't specifically for beauty or fashion. Just what I think are key important items you need for a stress free holiday - plus they are super affordable and have great money saving qualities.

1. Plug Adaptor 
For me a plug adaptor is one of the most important things to bring with you when you are going on holiday, without one of these, you cant charge your phone or use your hair dryer/straighteners! Sometimes its best to do your research or buy one when you get to the country so you know what plug they actually use.

2. Braun Silk Epil 5 Epilator 
This is my biggest money saving thing that I own! Since buying this bad boy, I have only had a full body wax twice in the past year saving me around £500 :/ Crazy I know! Its definitely worth investing in, this one is originally £100 but was bought for £50 on offer in Boots. Next stop - laser!! who's tried it?

3. Sun Smart Wristbands*
These wrist bands were sent to me recently to review and share with you guys, I agreed because I thought these wristbands could prevent a lot of future sun damage and stress. The wrist bands start off yellow which means you can stay in the sun, then it turns beige to warn you to re - apply sun cream and once its turned pink, you need to stay out of the sun. You attach the wrist band similar to a wrist band you receive at a club/festival - yet this one you can take off and re apply. You apply sun cream all over your body including the wrist band and your ready to go!! The wrist band is water proof, and is so discreet I forgot I was even wearing it.

4. Insect & Mosquito Repellent 
If I was you I would definitely bring a bottle of this along with you on holiday. I bought the aerosol can so Im not overloading my skin with too many creams/products. This sprays just like a spray deodorant. This bad boy was bought for only £1 from savers, and totally works!! I went away for a month and sprayed this on myself everyday/every other day and managed to get out unscaved until the last day when I was bitten in my hair/head... haha, literally the only place I didn't spray the product. Must have!!

5. Sun Cream/Oil with SPF
Last but certainly not least is some kind of sun cream/oil with relevant SPF to your daily activities. This one was super cheap from Savers again at £1! I love using a dry oil, because it makes me already look glowy and godess like before the sun hits me :) hehe..
