This week there was a sneak peak teaser of SUMMER!
It was heaven to be laying on the rocks at Bronte, dancing in the fading sunlight on North Bondi Rocks and generally being a bodacious beach babe once again.
The sneak peak too me completely unawares and I was very unprepared, having tossed all my almost empty sandy beauty products from last summer I had to improvise for my 3 days of almost (500) days of SUMMER!
Here are the new products I am excited to pick up and some old favorites for the nearing Summer:
Benah Canvas Beach Bag $149.00
Could there be a more perfect beach bag like ever? I don't think so. Canvas bags are my favorites for the beach, you can pile everything in and if it gets dropped in a rock pool you don't freak out because you can just put it in the washing machine. Yeah beach fun with Benah!
Dr.Jart+ Water Based BB Cream SPF 27+ UVA/UVB US$42.00
This was a favorite last summer and I am bringing the Dr. Jart back this summer too. It is water based which I like for summer, oil based tinited moisturizers/foundations break me out in hot weather because your pores are all open and breathing. The light base and high SPF makes it perfect for summer.

Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon $42.00
This little tube is super versitile I like putting it on my cheeks for a flush of colour and also on my lips for a natural 'I've just eaten a redskin' colour vibe. It is very sheer and won't go patchy in the heat.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock SPF 70 approx $13.00
Perfect if you are by yourself reading a book at the beach the spray gets all those tricky spots you might not be able to reach. Its also not as stinky like other sunscreens.
Available from supermarkets and chemists
Nars Multiple in Laguna $64.00
The sister to Nars's famous Laguna powder bronzer, I am super excited to pop this on my cheek bones after a day at the beach on my way to get a piña colada with my friends.

Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
On permanent repeat!
Available on itunes
Maybelline Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara $12.00
Normally I like loads and loads of mascara, but at the beach its not really that big of a deal. Full 'N Soft gives your lashes a good coat of colour without making them crunchy and looking like tranantula legs.
Yes To Cumbers Facial Wipes $9.99
Sticky hands, sweaty face, dripping ice-blocks happen all summer long and they need a wet wipey. Maybe I am prematurely preparing for motherhood carrying around wet wipes, but I don't care at least I am not a sticky mess.

Helen Kaminski Hampton Hat $185.00
I am totally obsessed with this hat! It is the perfect mix of Picnic at Hanging Rock and something you would wear to the beach in the 60's in Capri or some other Euro summer haven. This is on my 'Must lust buys for summer' list. The polka dot bow makes me weak at the knees it is so cute.

I was spotted doing a traditional native rock dance this week on Bronte Beach.
