This summer definitely isn’t what I thought it would be , thanks to a virus that has completely turned the world upside down , even so, I am determined to not let it bring me down and still try and enjoy life with the girls as much as I can :)

I’m absolutely loving the weather at the minute , I’m not going to lie , I have moaned a little about how hot it has been getting here in Staffordshire, 30C , but never the less , us Brits wouldn’t be British If we didn’t have a few moans about it right? :)

We are currently in a heat wave and I think this has got to be the hottest summer we have had in a few years and I am absolutely loving it !.

I wanted to share my summer loves with you as I love reading these types of posts and enjoy writing them too :)

First one is a new thing I have only discovered this summer - iced coffee, oh my word I am hooked!. I love coffee in general and can’t start the morning without one but had never tried iced coffee. Tik tok has been famous for its whipped iced coffee this year and I gave it a go and I am definitely sold.

Loads of ice , some Jordan’s skinny caramel syrup , ice cold milk and some whipped coffee and I am one happy girl !.

The garden has definitely been my saviour during lockdown and we are really enjoying being in the garden this summer , even to get 5 minutes outside in the sunshine with a coffee has really done wonders for my mental health and we all need that vitamin D don’t we? :)

Reading is something I have always loved , and although I do love a good book in the autumn months snuggled up in bed with candles ,I have been loving  sitting in the garden getting stuck into a good book. There’s definitely a different kind of feeling reading in the different seasons , do you agree?

Plus once you get stuck into a good read , and your in the sunshine , the sun can get on with doing its magic, and I’ve got a lovely tan , which I might add , I didn’t even get when we went to turkey or Spain HA !

Be sure to use your sun cream thought. I’ve enjoyed using the Hawaiian  sun spray this summer. We picked it up for primark and it smells so good , coconut!

We don’t live close to a beach which is one of our favourite places to go , but we did manage to get away to Hemsby a few weeks ago and I love the beach there . It’s one of my favourite places to be and we have been going for years now as my mum and dad have moved to Norfolk.

I’m hoping we can take a little drive to Blackpool beach for a family day out before the summer ends, keeping my fingers and toes crossed .
Cheesecake in a bowl! It’s way to hot to eat half the time here , salads are our go to , but I have come up with a cheesecake in a bowl dessert and it is SO good! We went strawberry picking and we got the most gorgeous strawberries which tasted amazing in this dessert , you definitely need to try it!

Curly care free hair , yes ! . Gone are the straighteners and hair dryers and out comes the curls . After a hair wash I plait my hair and let it do it’s thing over night and take it out the next day, so simple and less fuss .

I’d love to know what your summer loves are this year and I really hope you are all making the most of this lovely weather :)
