AD | summer holiday wishlist 2019

Summer is here - like, actually here. It's roasting. With that in mind I thought I'd put together a bit of a summer holiday wishlist. Not just fashion but all sorts of things that I'm lusting after ahead of my summer (ish) holiday later this year...

a collage of items i want to buy for my summer holiday

First of all, I want to get SO MANY snaps on holiday. It's my first time going on holiday just me and a pal - I've been on holiday with partners in the past, and in groups of 3+, but this will be my first 'just me and my bestie' kind of holiday. It's also the first time in ages that I'm going on a proper all-inclusive holiday rather than a sightseeing/exploring trip. Anyway, I want some gorgeous pictures of us both so I wish I had a decent camera. You can find some smashing prices for cameras on Latest Deals!

I watch Brogan Tate on YouTube because she's a babe and she always mentions these foldable handheld fans. I'm not sure if this is the exact one she has but it's the same idea - I absolutely need one because I'm not coping with this heat, and I don't want to be too hot on holiday and end up grumpy! Pick it up on Amazon.

These earrings are the cutest thing I've seen. Who doesn't want hoop earrings with pastel stars on them?! Plus you'll be supporting a small business if you order these. Oh I'm just obsessed with them. Tight bun and these hanging down, neutral make-up and a white outfit? PLEASE. Grab these on Etsy.

You may know I love llamas. And you need a beach towel for an all-inclusive holiday, right? This one's from John Lewis so you can pretty much guarantee it'll be amazing quality. You'd well stand out from the crowd, too! Get it here.

My last sunny holiday (Costa de la Calma)
We definitely need a bluetooth speaker in our room for when we're getting ready. Pretty self explanatory, really. This one's so stylish, too, and you can get it from Etsy.

I absolutely love a bit of Adidas and this colour is just lush so I couldn't not throw this t-shirt in here. Perfect with denim shorts or even just on it's own chucked over a bikini around the pool. 10/10 will probably buy at some point. It's available from ASOS.

This spray from Revolution Beauty X Jake Jamie is their Tropical Essence Spray. Just imagine how good that smells?! It's cruelty free, vegan, and super hydrating. What a winner. Grab it from their site here.

I am dyinggggg to get a smart suitcase. It's unnecessary and probably a massive gimmick but you can charge your phone on the go and also lock it with your phone rather than a physical lock. So clever. This is the Aerolite one and you can get them on Amazon.

Another thing I'm obsessed with this the Flat Lay Co make-up bags. They're such a clever idea: all your stuff in one bag and you don't have to put it back in the bag at the end, you just pull the bag back together. Amazing for lazy people like me, or if you're always in a rush when you travel. The new lemon print bag is *stunning* and you can get some of their other designs on ASOS.

You need a water bottle on holiday. Staying hydrated in the sunshine is SO important - and it's free to fill your water bottle up in an airport once you're through security. This Sass & Belle Frida Kahlo print water bottle (a whole litre!) is available on ASOS.

pin for later!
Again with the llamas, right? I haven't actually got a pool float yet, and I'm not sure if we'll fit one in our (shared) suitcase but if I do end up getting one, it'll be this one also from Amazon!

I need a roller for my skin - especially on holiday, skincare is SO important to me. These rollers help your products soak into your skin a bit more, and they don't take up a lot of room in your case. This one's from Pretty Little Thing.

Last but not least I spotted this anti-humidity spray from Amika. Firstly the packaging just screams '70s hot girl summer, but secondly I bet it works wonders in hot weather. Kind of pricey but if it protects your hair it's worth it - you can get it on Beauty Bay.

So there you have it, my summer holiday wishlist. Let me know what's on yours!
