My Summer Essentials

I am aware that summer is slowly coming to an end although calendar wise there is still over a month to go until we will swap sandals for boots and summer dresses for jumpers, but summer is definitely my favourite season or at least it has a close tie with spring as nothing beats the feeling when days get longer and it…
