5 Things I Love About Summer

Summer loving had me a blast, summer loving happened so fast

Where is this summer going? I love the sun, long days and all the colour and happiness that it brings with it. I thought I would share some of my favourite things about this time of year.

I also posted my Summer Bucket List if you are interested in what I am planning for the last leg of summer.

  • The sounds that summer brings. You will always hear an ice cream van going somewhere that catapults you back to your childhood. I can’t remember the last time I ran after an ice cream van?! Either that or a lawnmower. Someone, somewhere is always cutting their grass which just screams warm summer day at me. I suppose that smell inevitably comes along with this. The smell of a BBQ or freshly cut grass is just unbeatable.
  • The food! So many fruits are in season and they are just amazing. I truly hate that we don’t have amazing strawberries and watermelon all year round. I essentially eat my years supply of my 5 a day in summer and hibernate for the other 3 seasons.

  • Everything is outside. Beer gardens, pubs, restaurants, games, walks, BBQs. Everyone makes the most of being outside and I think it’s great. If you’re not eating outside, having a drink outside or just escaping the inevitable humidity in British houses then what are you doing?!
  • Colours. Summer is the season where everything just seems bright and fabulous. There is never a better time to test out that bright coral lipstick or nail varnish or finally wear that yellow dress. In summer, all colour is welcomed and I love it.
  • Tan lines. This may be a British thing but we seem to be blessed with a knack of creating the most ridiculous tan lines. We are almost renowned for our “T shirt tans” that those who work outside most days develop. That or a sock tan. I cannot tell you the amount of sock tan lines I see every day in summer and it makes my day (the simple things, eh?).

What do you love about summer? heck, or winter?

    I LOVE a bit of colour in the summer! And talking of ice-cream vans, we have one who actually pulls onto our farm in the summer on his way past! Such a kind man x

    • July 19, 2017 / 11:31 pm

      Oh really? That sounds like my idea of heaven! I haven’t seen one in a while now 🙁 xxx

    I love the long days when its still warm and light outsideat 10pm .The ice cream van brings back memories of good times.

    I love the winter vs summer mainly because of snow ❄️ ( it doesn’t actually snow in my region!). But I also can’t hate summer because of the amazing colours and especially: the fruits! I particularly love strawberries and mangoes and summer brings it all!

    • July 19, 2017 / 11:33 pm

      Ahhh yes!! I love the snow but there is something about bright colours and fruits that I just can’t pass up! xxx

  5. July 19, 2017 / 4:32 pm

    I love how everything is outside during summer! It makes everything better!

  6. July 19, 2017 / 4:35 pm

    I also love that legit everything is outside, I love drinking coffee outside and having lunch, such a great time. xx

  7. July 19, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    I love iced-lollies in summer, so tasty! lovely post, xx

  8. July 19, 2017 / 6:06 pm

    lovely photos, lovely post xx

    I love that there is so much more to do during the summer. Don’t think I agree with the tan lines though. In America, it isn’t sexy. Well, only if you have a little sun tattoo but still, no one likes it.

    • July 19, 2017 / 11:37 pm

      Oh god no they’re not sexy – British people just have hilarious ones, hence why I love them xx

  10. July 19, 2017 / 9:11 pm

    I love summer! I am definitely with you on going outside! My personal favourite thing though is how long the sun is out. Some days it’s still light out till 9. You get so much more stuff done! Even if it’s just relaxing outside. Definitely take advantage of it, cause I’m missing it in winter. The sun sets at 5 🙁

    • July 19, 2017 / 11:38 pm

      Long days are the best – eating dinner outside in the sunset aghhh it’s amazing! Oh gosh it will be so weird to get used to short days again xxx

  11. July 19, 2017 / 10:33 pm

    Even though winter in my country is not that cold, this post made me really miss summer! I love long walks on the park and having ice cream almost every day, summer also reminds me of New Years Eve, which is a very awesome and summery night here!

    • July 19, 2017 / 11:39 pm

      So crazy to consider NYE as Summer! I really need to visit somewhere which is opposite weather wise – I feel like it would really confuse me! Hahah xx

  12. July 20, 2017 / 10:00 am

    I agree with the sounds. I’m not the hugest fan of summer but the excited screams and the laughter in warm late nights is infectious.

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:17 pm

      Totally agree! Something about laughing children makes my day xx

  13. July 20, 2017 / 10:32 am

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:17 pm

      Omg yes! I didn’t think of that! xx

  14. July 20, 2017 / 12:00 pm

    I just love the sunshine! Something about the extra dose of vitamin D makes me feel so happy and I know I can cure a bad mood by just sitting outside in the sunshine. <3

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:16 pm

      Yes! I just want to do everything outside! xxx

  15. July 20, 2017 / 2:06 pm

    The food is the best! Everything is so fresh! xx.

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:16 pm

      Yes!! Tonnes of strawberries and watermelon! xx

  16. July 20, 2017 / 2:07 pm

    I love how long the days are! I seriously get depressed when I go to work at 6:45 in the morning, and when I leave it’s dark. The tan lines part rings true for me! Lol. I have a hideous shorts tan.

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:07 pm

      Yes!! I love that about summer too!! xx

  17. July 20, 2017 / 4:04 pm

    What is that NYX shade omg it looks incredible! Also, great post 🙂 x

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:07 pm

      The lipstick? Amsterdam lovely 🙂 xx

  18. July 20, 2017 / 6:07 pm

    I also love the summer fruits! Nothing like ripe summer fruit! Definitely my favorite part about summer! Wait, or it may be the heat! Or swimming! Jeez, you have made it difficult! Not a bad “difficult”! But a lovely difficult lol 🙂 Keep writing! Love it!

  19. July 20, 2017 / 11:28 pm

    Summer is the BEST!! We literally do everything outside! Love wakeboarding!!

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:06 pm

      I’ve never been wakeboarding, it sounds so cool! x

  20. July 21, 2017 / 5:53 pm

    Love your list! I gotta add longer day light hours as it makes me more productive 🙈

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:03 pm

      Yes! I never thought about this one until people started commenting – I totally agree xx

  21. July 21, 2017 / 9:11 pm

    Summer is just amazing. I normally `hibernate` during other 3 seasons because is too cold, too dark, too horrible. Summer gives you a good kick. You are positive and happy.

    • July 21, 2017 / 11:03 pm

      Exactly, especially in the UK! I totally agree xx

    Ahh yes, summer! Last week I posted a little bit about the beauty of summer. Thanks for sharing!

  23. July 22, 2017 / 1:45 am

    I totally agree I love that everything is outside. I went to a historic market that was outside and loved it. I recently started a workout program that’s all outside, it does make it challenging at times but it’s worth it. I also love getting frozen yogurt with my friend afterwards, so yummy. I sadly have a couple of tan lines from my sports bra lol so I understand.

    • July 23, 2017 / 12:45 am

      You always seem to be doing such amazing and interesting things!! Exercising outside is such a fantastic idea-I love it! xxx

      • July 24, 2017 / 6:42 am

        Yes! I love how uplifts your mood while strengthens your body. Lol so do you! I just try to make the most of every day🙂.

  24. July 23, 2017 / 8:57 pm

    I LOVE farmer’s markets. Not only can you find fresh fruits and veggies but it’s also a great place to get breakfast or lunch ^_^ I love visiting mine on Saturday mornings!

      That is such a good point, I didn’t think of that! Thank you for commenting lovely xxx

  25. July 24, 2017 / 3:17 am

    I always get the worst tan lines haha

    • July 24, 2017 / 10:55 am

      They can look so funny though, I love them!!

      • July 25, 2017 / 8:56 am

        hmm maybe funny for other people, but I have had the misfortune of t-shirt lines, sock lines, random hand lines, three different singlet strap lines, goggle lines and lines from a swimming cap. I never seem to tan unless I am wearing something that will lead to a comical result!

        • July 25, 2017 / 11:49 pm

          That is fantastic hahaha! They all have a story to tell though! Xxx
