1. Kindle Paperwhite | Amazon £110
Now the go to ebook - holds 1000s of books, weighs less than your phone and looks fabulous! What more could you want? Oh yes, and provides full discretion of your chosen reading list, now you can keep your Mr. Grey out of the public eye - trust me, it's better for us all.
Plus you can buy really cool Kindle covers! Completely counterproductive of the idea that you don't have to carry a book, but I absolutely adore these Kindle 'book covers'.
2. Instax Mini | Curry's £60-£120
Make your Insta worthy snaps a physical reality with these cool polaroid knockoffs. Although once realising the price per photographic film, you might reconsider the split from your upload-a-day relationship with Instagram #hashtagsforlife. Despite the expense, this is a really cool gadget and the size is just adorable.
On a budget? Why not take one snap per holiday, and keep an Instax album of all of your adventures. Check out this cool personalised Instax album!
3. DG Sunglasses | Sunglass Hut £176
Given my professionally diagnosed obsession with sunglasses (I currently have 9 pairs, please don't ask me why), it would be a crime not to feature them in this list of summer must-haves. Plus you know it makes sense, in summer there tends to be sun, and what's the point of having a kindle if you're temporarily blinded by the big burning ball of gas in the sky. Anyway, fashion... these DG sunglasses are absolutely stunning, love the shape, the summery design, the price tag - not so much, nevertheless they are just perfect for your summer travels.
If the price tag is a bit steep, some G&D Turkey fakes should do the trick.
4. Leather Travel Wallet | Etsy's House of LH £35
This handmade leather travel wallet from Etsy, holds all of your important docs whilst giving you the air of a pro-fash traveller. Pair this with a stripy tee, kurt geiger boots, and a Michael Kors carry on and you’re almost certain to be upgraded to first class. (I can not be held liable if you remain stuck in Economy). But seriously, this is a must have for all of your fashion and more importantly, organisational needs.
You've got the Kindle right? May as well go all matchymatchy and buy the Kindle holder too.
5. Bandana | Claire's £4.50
No one has ever looked bad in a bandana, ask your 7 year old self and all the Claire's models. Perfect to accompany your beach waves and high waisted denim short-shorts. Failing to look completely perfect, this simple accessory will keep your curls in check if you're on your 'hostel', 'slumming' travels and can't quite reach any hair straighteners or a shower for that matter.
6. Lancome Hypnôse Waterproof Mascara | Boot's £22.50
“I love having beach panda eyes” said no woman EVER. Avoid the black panda eye smudges and exit the sea in true, Baywatch babe fashion with this #1 'pool-proof' mascara.
Remember to buy some good makeup wipes; this bad-boy will be a tricky one to get rid of.
7. Swimming Costume | Mara Hoffman £109
This summer, ditch your 2 piece - it's all about the cozzy! Forget the fact that you'll have horrendous tan lines for months to come, this year's swimsuits have been smoking. Look super sexy AND feel incredible by the beach in some eye catching patterned swimwear.
On second thought, maybe take a couple of bikini's as well, tan lines are a priority concern after all.
8. Smile Jamaica Headphones | House of Marley, £19.99
These in ear headphones are just perfectly aligned with my Summer 2015 vibes. Using simple natural materials (wood & copper), House of Marley have designed these gorgeously simple headphones, perfect for your trip to the beach or pool sesh.
