My Cart



There are many things to love about summer but unfortunately, we are not all on holiday for the whole of summer and sometimes we get caught up between the blistering heat and office buildings without sufficient air-conditioning and forget why this is such a wonderful time of year.

We thought to make a list of things we love about summer and hope they will also remind you of all the small things that make this a special time of year – so we can all forget about the little annoyances and rather celebrate everything we enjoy – from the smell of suntan lotion to sunset volleyball on the beach.

Things we love this summer:

Sundresses – light and flimsy

Beach hair

Healthy sun-kissed skin
