COOL SUMMER PRODUCTS

cool summer products

travel fan

 

While this looks a little funny- I am sure we will all be glad of it in soaring temperatures.

 

I used to own a handheld fan back in the 1980’s. One which used to always catch my hands (ouch). I often sit outside and by 3pm the hottest time of the day in France, you will find it can get up to 40+ degrees here. So vanity would go out of the window- I would rather the fan! I think this can be worn easily without back in the 80’s like I stood having to hold a mini wind turbine! 

 

 

This travel product just might be the next best thing to use abroad or in your own front garden.

 

Portable Personal Fan, Handsfree Mini USB Neck Fan Rechargeable Wearable Neckband Fan, Desk Fan, Necklance Fan with Dual Wind Head 3 Speeds LED Light for Traveling Sport Outdoor Camping Office (Black)

Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
☞【FREE YOUR HANDS】: Hand free fan was design as a headphone to free your hands anywhere; Fashion style makes you look so cool. Hanging around your neck, suitable for traveling in hot weather, saved you from the embarrassment of dripping with a sudden sweat in public on numerous occasions.
☞【3 ADJUSTABLE SPEED LEVELS】: Low/medium/high speed level. Adjust appropriate fan speed by pressing the power button. Neckband fan with powerful airflow can the fast and easy access to instant relief from hot flashes. Hanging the cooler fan around your neck and take it everywhere.

I don’t know about you but I have a major dislike to wearing masks especially those surgical types. They are so hard to breathe in!

They have multiple purposes and you can also use them as a hair band. to protect from the cold and dust and more. With so many designs to choose from, you can also get them for men women and anybody really! They can be used for both summer and winter which makes it a winner if you ask me!

ENTERTAINMENT FOR HOME & ABROAD

 

folding fat bike

 

Gone are the days people are huffing around with no motor.

 

Electric bikes and boards certainly changed the way people travel. Kids are scootering to school with moms on board, many dads also own one while others are following the trend of electric travel. They are great for short trips and saves money on fuel! 

 

I wasn’t quite sure which section to put this in but I think entertainment sits fine with me. You can use these electric bikes at home or whilst on holiday. I think in a few years they will get lighter and faster.

 

Folding products have also become a game changer on the online market. They have become quite popular now.

 

I once used to huff with a heavy bike on shoulder in train stations and it wasn’t easy.  Now you can literally take your bike anywhere. So rather than paying for a ticket to the next city, I can simply save money by going on my scooter instead. You can get up to 15km on one If you are planning a road trip they also save room in the back of your car rather trying to twist the thing to squash it in.

Wondering about the photo above?

This fat tyre cruise bike has literally took over beach cruisers, once I really wanted one until I seen this

BEAUTY PRODUCTS

I once used to bleach my hair to death.

 

I ignored the fact that it was thinning over time and I was commented by a boss once for ‘blond hair being everywhere’. Whilst I thought that at the time was a little exaggerated- she had a point.  I stared at my brush cringing- my hair was falling out. Now I no longer call that fashion!

 

 

Stores are selling stinky ammonia products while hairdressers tip bleach on your roots with electrifying foil. The end result looks nice after a ton of conditioner thrown on but wait and see what you think again in a few weeks! It’s a Frizz ball- you might end up with a wig like shauny the sheep and the strands extend like chewing gum. Its quite disgusting really. Sorry about that- but leave your hair alone girlies! You have perfect hair already there are ways you can change colour other than with bleach!

Sorry not a clear photo- this was me in 2012. 

 

There are ways (which I now use) to get your beach hair in time for summer- without using harsh chemicals.  have seen some terrible YouTubers bleaching, snapping, hair going orange you name it- I have seen it all. 

 

Now I wish I had took notice years ago than ruining perfectly healthy hair just for the sake of lightened locks. 

 

How Do You Get Blond Hair Without Bleaching?

Its not an overnight thing but its certainly worth it. Your hair is your own, Its not like putting paint stripper on to get immediate results.

 

Camomile Shampoo! 

 

 

This stuff is great. I don’t feel the need to go and spend in expensive salons.  I do enjoy going for the occasional cut but I have kind of mastered how to do my own hair from home. It has saved me an awful lot of money- and it can for you too! 

Klorane Blond Highlights Shampoo with Chamomile (400ml)

Thanks to the chlorane chamomile extract contained in the delicate emulsifier base of this shampoo, the hair is lightened
Brand: klorane
400 ml size

You will see results within a week to a month depending on how much you use it. I like this shampoo as it gives a more natural look without spoiling your hair. If you want faster results, use Camomile shampoo and conditioner each time you wash it and nothing else. Prepare your hair now and love it later. You will thank me for no damage or an orange disaster! I have tried to bleach my hair many times going around like a bright orange carrot vigorously searching for a hat to go to the shops. It can be highly embarrassing since you changed color in the first place to improve your look!

 

 

 

If you are reading this post with a hair disaster, go for purple shampoo but only use it a few minutes as it says or you could end up with grey purple hair like once happened to me also! I kind of liked it but the mix just looked a bit too weird for me. After that I started seeing a trend of grey purple hair- I could of left it! lol

 

 

 

So there you have it. I would not advise anybody to bleach their hair.

 

 

I once used John Frieda Go Blonder which was cool for a while. I would spay this stuff on then fry the shoot out of it with heating irons… It works with heat. While faster its not worth losing your hair- trust me! I hope this helped. Let me know in the comments below if you try this method of camomile it does work eventually! I also want to point out- it could take longer if your hair is darker please consult product for this info. I am now liking my half natural mousey hair I once used to cover up with a rainbow of colors with blonde at the ends. Best of both worlds I guess- I am however still using camomile shampoo but more towards the ends. I spend about 5 minutes with it on and  it still seems to do the trick. Now its not white fake blond but more of a nice natural color. 

 

TANNING

 

Never been a fan of fake tan in the earlier days. I tried lots of well known products. My Mum once commented- ‘susan what have you done- you look orange’ Yes I had gone mad since the days white pasty skin simmered out. I have come across a few great ones from my sister – Dove gradual tanning. I went mad for that in Australia- think I had half the beach fooled! They was looking at me like ‘that tan’ while I laughed as I knew it was fake of course! 

 

I am a big fan of Paris Hilton but only recently I discovered we both love the same product. Its a great price too! 

 

 

What Is This Product?

Its been around for many years now and I am pleased I discovered it is still going! Please don’t end this product Sally Hansen! 

 

This stuff dries as fast as you put it on! Why pay for a spray tan for your wedding or whatever the occasion? This stuff gives great results. I don’t feel like I am melting once the sun arrives like with lotions. Overall- it is much better!  The price is amazing! I will also be stocking up for myself soon!

SHELTER

 

Now I have always been a big fan of camping even off site. That’s where all my knowledge comes from on here about the campsites. Worked on them, lived on them and enjoyed myself on them!

 

I had this conversation recently talking about camping and tents. Once you get used to these they save you heaps of time you can literally be set up within minutes. No putting rods together or setting up a construction plan.

 

Pop Up Tents!

Even if your not going anywhere this year- you can still have fun in the garden accompanied with a barbecue.

 

 

Now that could be fun for the kids if you decide to hold on until next year! No matter where you are, these tents are not only easy to put out, they also save space for your other essentials. It’s a matter of throwing it out! To put it away takes a little practice but its worth it! Figure of 8 twist sort of thing and pack. See instructions for more info. I also love the new inflatable pillows- I used to take my pillows from home but with these I like the fact they are specifically for camping. Its better than throwing them back on your bed right?.

 

Please see our other camping products: We have lots more coming soon!

I like this! Gone are the days a barbecue got in the way. In Fact, I own one of these- the blue one. If you ever run out of firewood or gas to your usual stove, you can simply pull it out of the cupboard and use.
