Whether you're throwing a few things in a bag for a last minute escape, or going further, for longer, here are the summer staples to keep you glowing and full of sparkle that I am relying on right now:
Softest stretch Terry-towelling hoodies + a trio of our remedies for the ultimate summer essentials combo:
Towelling Hoodie in Rose/White or Sky/White stripes with a 3 pack of my remedies £45 (RRP £58).
The most nourishing face oil and hydrating treatment essence to spritz on in combination, the duo from skincare that has become cult, there is nothing quite like these from the Vintner's Daughter, (they do minis of both if you're in the US so you can try them out and take them away with you).
Pick N Mix is my top pick for packing, the trio of all three remedies.
All 3 for the road, immune perking, help with those restless summer nights and any dodgy traveller tummies to deal with.
SUMMER20 will give you 20% off our remedies as a sunny treat from us.
Sunscreen for children should be mineral. Read about the difference here.
Rose Quartz Face roller for ironing any tired faces, I keep mine in the fridge which adds an extra refreshment on hot days. Use with a night oil for a lovely relaxing moment.
The firepit that works as a bbq / garden heater / summer evening friend / Love Island token! Whatever it is my favourite addition to my outdoor space this year.
My favourite gut shot that sets me up first thing every morning, Symprove is always in my packing and especially useful for those ties on holiday when things can get out of step.
My code: LIZZIE15 is running for the summer holidays and will get you 15% off a 12 week programme I can't rec more highly for banishing any bloat and making me feel brighter every day.
The Wellness Duo to keep holidays happy and healthy.
Be Well in the morning as an insurance policy for our immune systems when pizza and pasta might be the staples, and Be Sleepy for bedtime to keep summer nights restful.
Shiva Roses a natural deodorant with a deliciously summery air.
What I'm packing in anticipation of falling in love:

Collagen Frappaccinos are a summer joy
