What’s in your May bank holiday essentials? We have two long weekends coming up let’s get prepared!
Sunglasses are always essential to carry with you during the Spring/Summer months but they are a DEFINITE for a May bank holiday. We have found you the perfect dupe to Louis Vuitton’s cat eye effect sunglasses from River Island for only £16! This year is going to be full of cat eye sunglasses so these are a must.
2. Tote bag
A weekend tote is always the best way to go when you’re out and about, whether it’s a trip to the beach or a weekend in the city for some quick shopping as we ALL know a tote bag can fit just about everything in. We love River Islands metallic beach tote bag accompanied with a matching purse or if you’re looking for a splash of colour this Spring/Summer; Zara have a mustard yellow tote bag for £19.99.
3. Sea salt spray
Sea salt spray is the best hair product to use to achieve the ‘un-done’ beachy look which is perfect for a bank holiday weekend! Who wants to spend time doing their hair, when you can get out in the sun? Benito recommends Bumble + Bumble surf spray for effortless heat free styling.
4. Coconut oil
This natural oil is a God send! Pure coconut oil is essential any day but a MUST for bank holidays. It has many uses such as a whole body moisturiser, hand moisturiser, makeup remover and a shaving cream to shave your legs leaving them smooth and shiny… all that in one little bottle.
5. Lash Lift treatment
Why would you want to bother with eyelash curlers when you could just get a lash lift! The lash lift will give you natural curled lashes that will last up to 6 weeks, just in time for the next bank holiday, imagine that, no more lash maintenance for your bank holiday mornings!
6. All-in-one BB cream
This BB cream from The Body Shop will answer all your prayers! At only £12, it has got to be one of the most important holiday items. It comes in five shades which are said to ‘adapt to your skin tone’ and will hydrate you for 24 hours. With light to medium coverage, it is great for brightening your complexion and keeping you looking fresh all your bank holiday.
7. Brow Tint & Shape
Before you go you must get a tint and shape! The technician will shape your brows how you desire and then apply a tint which will give you fuller looking brows, which are more defined! Make sure you pop into the salon 24 hours before your appointment for your skin test and then you’re all ready to go!
