Hi lovelies! As some of you may know, I am currently away on holiday in Majorca this week, yay! So, as I didn't want to leave you all post-less, I am handing you over to my lovely guest bloggers.
Today's post is by Yuen from The Craziest Paradigm and it's 15 tips for the ultimate summer! Such a cute and appropriate post idea I think you'll agree! Enjoy!

Hey, my name is Yuen from The Craziest Paradigm which is a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog. I'm just starting out so I'm learning along the way! Anyway, today I'm bringing you...:

1. Exercise: Worried that you're not in tip-top bikini shape? Start now! Grab a friend and get some form of exercise regularly- whether it's jogging, swimming, team sports or  fitness class, do something that YOU enjoy because it will make working out and toning up a lot more fun.

2. Less is more: Lighten your beauty routine and let your skin breathe - replace foundation and blush for a simple swipe of bronzer to make your skin glow

3. Try letting your hair succumb to their natural waves this summer

4. SPF 15 or more!: Lips lack a protective layer so they're super sensitive to UV rays! So put on that SPF 15 (at least) lip balm to keep your lips moisturized and safe

5. Avoid anything sticky: sand will stick to it and it will break down faster in the heat

6. Go au naturel with pinks, peachs, golds and bronze

7. Remember to pack waterproof items! Even if you're not swimming, you don't want the humidity to give you panda eyes.

8. SUNSCREEN! Apply it above the moisturizer and below makeup.

9. Don't forget to bring along oil blotting paper to wipe away the sweat & shine.

10. Mop your hairline after wearing a hat - oil can get trapped under your hat or headband and you don't want acne on your forehead!
11. Wear light, flowy clothes: Choose dresses and tops that are made out of lighter material like cotton. Avoid dark colours because they absorb heat and can make you sweat faster!
12. Skip powder and opt for cream: Face powder turns cakey when you sweat so apply cream-based items that blend easily into your skin
13. Sunburnt? Apply aloe vera extract or lotions containing aloe vera as that will soothe the burn and helps it to heal faster
14. Exofliate: Putting on self-tanner with exfoliating results in blotches and streaks
15.Stay hydrated! Carry a bottle of water with you wherever you go so you have no reason to forget!
