WHAT’S HOT WHAT’S NOT
Although short wetsuits are good for warm water conditions further afield, there is a small window in Europe when you can finally wear one with out looking silly or being a bit chilly. It’s coming up, so don’t blink or you will miss it!
Not sure we really need to explain ourselves with this one… puppies are just rad. Cute, cuddly and the perfect companion for summer outdoor activities.
If you can’t wear uber-bright colours in the height of summer, then when you can you? Crayola tones and neon shades aplenty.
VEGAN ICE CREAM
We think it’s perfectly acceptable to eat ice cream all year round, but warmer days means upping the ante and the vegan variety is ever-increasing and totally delicious – from organic and soy to cashew nut, coconut milk and avocado.
When you go to the effort to slap on the factor 50 but miss a spot and end up with an odd red strip, ugly strap line or finger print effect. Easily done with awful-looking consequences.
CROWDED WAVES AND BEACHES
It’s so sunny out, but oh-so busy.
BUSY SUMMER CALENDARS
Why does all the fun come at once – BBQs, parties, holidays and festivals all crammed in at the same time? If we’re off to a beach gathering then we’re missing out on a garden party.
SUMMER FOOD DISASTERS
We love alfresco eating but nothing grinds our gears more than sand in our food, burnt sausages and lukewarm beverages that have been sitting in the sun.
