Summer is on the way, woohoo! I can’t wait to start on my summer wardrobe thanks to my new found body confidence. I’m also looking forward to sorting out our packing essentials for our long awaited family holiday to Cornwall. I’m feeling really positive about summer 2019 and everything that we’ve got going on. Most importantly, I’m feeling really positive about myself and feeling comfortable in my own skin for the first time since the birth of Luke. I might even think that I look pretty damn good while I’m sunning myself on a Cornish beach – I’m taking my self love to the next level and learning to like what I’ve got!
I’m looking forward to picking up some essentials for the summer holidays. Mostly I’m looking forward to buying all the dresses and summer accessories. Since finding out that I need to wear glasses earlier this year, I’m also going to have to sort out some prescription sunnies because the thought of not being able to see anything while on holiday does not appeal to me!
Since I’m feeling great at the moment and have been practicing lots of self love, self care and self worth rituals, I thought I’d write this post about summer fragrances. I truly believe that scents and fragrances are directly connected to our moods and mental health. That’s why I always have scented candles dotted around and leads to me writing posts like this: The Best Seasonal Scents For Autumn and Winter. I think that wearing a perfume that makes you feel happy and good about yourself is a great way to start the day off and should allow you to get yourself into a positive state of mind.

Calvin Klein – CK One Summer 2019 Eau de Toilette
Unisex scents are something I usually shy away from, but the Calvin Klein CK One Summer 2019 fragrance smells good enough to tempt me over to the dark side. According to the big wide web, the ingredients that make this fragrance so special have been sourced from all over the world – from Siberia to Iceland. The CK One Summer fragrance is a bright, uplifting, mood boosting and energetic scent – great for both day and night wear. No matter if you’re heading for a day on the beach or making your way to a fancy holiday restaurant, Calvin’s got you covered.
Marc Jacobs – Daisy Eau de Toilette
Daisy: an absolute timeless classic. Much loved by many, Marc Jacobs Daisy is an absolute essential summer fragrance. It’s light, sweet and simple, lasts well and smells divine. With both fruity and floral notes, it combines strawberry, violet leaves and jasmine to create a sweet, feminine scent that stays with you throughout the day.
Bobbi Brown – ‘Beach’
Bobbi Brown Beach is one of those perfumes I can’t wait to get my hands on. Firstly, it’s vegan friendly which is always a winner – especially when it comes to beauty products. Secondly, it’s been describe to me as “a beach in a bottle”. As a country bumpkin who grew up in Cornwall, this seriously appeals to me! It’s great for any time of the day and any time of the year, but if you’re looking for a fragrance that’ll boost your mood during your summer adventures, Bobbi Brown’s Beach will put a smile on your face. It’s relaxing, irresistible and exhilarating thanks to the gorgeous sand jasmine, sea spray and mandarin scents. This is right at the top of my shopping list for summer!
Donna Karen – Cashmere Mist Eau de Parfum
If sophistication is your thing, then Cashmere Mist could become your new staple fragrance. It’s great for summer as it features some lovely light floral notes (lily of the valley, ylang ylang and jasmine) while combining them with some earthy tones. With a touch of amber and musk, this isn’t as light as the other fragrances mentioned and doesn’t scream ‘playful’. Instead, it emits sophistication and maturity, making you feel confident, empowered and ready to take on the world.
All of these fragrances are amazing and I can’t wait for the weather to heat up a little more so I can make the most of them.
The Bobbi Brown ‘Beach’ scent is at the top of my summer shopping list and I think it’ll probably be the summer fragrance that travels to Cornwall with me.
Hopefully this post has given you a few ideas about some fragrances that might suit you and your lifestyle. I hope that you find your signature scent that makes you feel as empowered and confident as you deserve to feel and that no matter what your insecurities might be, you have an amazing summer!
