Summer is Here

The weather is now unbearably warm. It is so uncomfortable to do anything. Sleeping is hard work, eating is hard work, cooking is harder, and even just breathing takes a lot more effort in this heat. I don’t cope well in summer. Can you tell? I like seeing lovely sunny days, but I like it when it is cool. When it gets too warm and air is just still, I get really uncomfortable. The fans we have don’t do much. Investing in those fancy cool gadgets for some cooler air doesn’t make any sense to me because the weather will change back to bearable before we know it.

I am unable to have the windows open for too long, thanks to the high pollen count. I have been squeezing and itching all through this week, it is a miracle I cam still work. I guess that is the beauty of working from home. You can work in your pyjamas even on sick days.

Enough of me moaning now. These last few days have been really hard for me, but how have you all be coping?

The only good thing about the heat and the hay fever, is that is now officially SUMMER, and the heaters have been off for weeks. At a point, it felt like they would never go off! One thing I love about summer is the long days, the fact that I can still take an outfit picture at 8pm if I want to is brilliant. I also really love summer fashion, especially the summer dresses and sandals. Being able to show a bit of skin feels good after being bundled up for so long.

However, showing more skin means, the summer body has to be in place, and I am still working on the abs as I said in the My Protein outfit post, so no crop tops here, thank you. But I will be showing the legs off, you know I love to.

I have recently tried a hair removal cream for the first time. I usually just use a shaving stick to get the hairs off but this time I applied some hair removal cream on my underarms, and it got rid of the hair smoothly. It was a lovely experience, so I will be using it on my legs soon. I will write a full review on the product, so look out for that post.

With body hairs issue out of way, the only thing left to really tackle is the stretch marks on the thighs. It is not a major issue, I have had them for years now. They have reduced but there is still room for improvemens. I would like to see them all off basically. I will be swimming a lot this summer, and I would love to go on holiday at some point this year, so getting the stretch marks off for good would be ace.

The guys at Pulse Light Clinic London offer free same day consultations for stretch mark removal, so I should be popping in to take them up on this offer. The fact that I can just walk in and have my consultation is so good because I don’t live in London, and most of my trips are usually not that planned in advance, so popping in is good for me. I also like the fact that there is no downtime, I can carry on as normal, and the treatment is great for all skin types. I will be looking into this treatment.

What plans do you have for summer? Sound off in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

  1. Tell me about hay fever! I have been literally reminded of all my allergies as the weather started heating up, but nevertheless I do love summer. I loved both of your outfits, you look incredible. Keep up with the hard work!xx

  2. I am currently taking hay fever medicine now so you are not alone with hay fever. And as for those abs, lets just say, all shall be well 🙂
    I am looking forward to you going on holiday because you never do 🙂 I am planning one too.
    Enjoy your session for your treatment, bring back review a beg.

  3. I love the fact the stretch mark clinic is a walk in. Even though I live in London I can’t really tell when I’m available to book things in advance so that’s really useful. x

  4. I’ve been finding it a challenge! Home is fine but commuting to work on public transport for the first time in the summer is not great. I arrive at work looking a sweaty mess 😓

  5. My husband is exactly the same whereas I love love love the heat. I seem to prefer it to be hot as hell or snowing ha! I do find it really heard with the kids though because Edith is struggling terribly with her teeth and then the heat seems to make her super duper grumpy. H x

  6. It doesn’t appear to be unbearably warm for us yet, but we live by the coast so always have a cool breeze. Sorry to hear you have been suffering with hayfever too

  7. I am away on holiday now sp not about as much. Have your blogs to save to reply when I can. I don’t like the real heat at home. Its too stifling and humid. Abroad is different. As well cos your not working in it the same way. I am a total beach and sunbed gal, which is where I am writing this (not to make you jealous)

    Its a busy summer for us this year. We are back a week and I go on my annual weekend retreat. Two weeks later we have my brothers big birthday bash and 2 weeks after that my eldest son is getting married so exciting times for us

  8. You need to find yourself a local beekeeper! Seriously, a spoonful of local honey and bee pollen has ‘cured’ my hayfever. I was so sceptical but it really does work! Mother Nature is a clever old thing! x

  9. Agree with Mostly Yummy Mummy, Local honey is great for boosting your immune system. Mine is getting in shape and fighting my middle aged spread. I’m big not smoothies at the moment which has been beneficial to me and my kids. Fake tan is next on my list!

  10. Love your outfits! I am 33 weeks and really struggling with this weather too! It’s a bit too hot for me. I haven’t got anything planned this Summer yet as I am due my baby next month, so will take it week by week. x

  11. I don’t do summer, I don’t mind when there’s a breeze but when its unbearable I’m done. Last few days I’ve only had to walk kids to school and had to change when I’ve got home because I’m all sweaty and sticky. Give me the weeks before autumn when you can still wear just a normal tee but not me hot
