Summer Bag Essentials..

I was contacted by Amy from Goldfish not too long ago regarding a #summerbloggerchallenge this involves a large group of bloggers teaming up over the summer to post one day a week on a specific topic Amy gives us. Obviously I jumped at the opportunity to improve my blogging skills, meet some bloggers and find interesting posts to read.

this weeks topic is based on the Summer Bag Essentials.. Summer is fast approaching and us girls are prone to a bag change up dependent on the weather/season. 

The bag itself is from Accessorize, I bought it with the intention of using it over summer as I'm really into the tan look this season, I have a slight obsession with bags at the moment and fell in love. Next on my list would be sunglasses, I bought these in Australia when my trusty pair broke (still mourning) and I think they're perfect for summer. 

I've chosen a MAC lipstick in the shade 'impassioned' it is a perfect bright coral colour for this season, along with a Barry M Gelly Nail Varnish in the shade 'Prickly Pear' this is a pretty pastel colour to brighten the mood for summer. 
Deodrant is also a must-have during summer, no one likes sweat! along with my Soap & Glory travel size hand sanitizer.

During summer we tend to be out everyday so I've included my Sony SLR camera as I like to capture good moments and make photographic memories. Following along with technology I've also included my little rabbit speakers, this small gadget with huge sound is perfect for picnics. - however you can't enjoy a day out without protection, so i've included a travel size sun block, summer wont be a cheerful ordeal if you're burnt! 

I've popped my Soap & Glory Instant Radiance Energy Balm into the equation as I think under makeup or on its own its perfect for lifting your face into a healthy glow during summer. The NARS illuminator in Copacabana is great for adding an extra glow to your foundation or general makeup routine. - finishing this collection for summer is the MAC Select Sheer Pressed which i'll use to top up throughout the day if I find my face is being attacked by sun! (sweat sweat sweat)

If you're also taking part in this challenge, please leave a comment below with your first post! I'd love to read through fellow bloggers entries and what would be on their summer bag essentials list.
