Tips for a Healthy Summer

This is definitely the hottest summer I have ever experienced in the UK. It has been a very warm summer. And it doesn’t feel like it is going to be cooling down anytime soon. Is it warm where you are? On some days I like the warmth (when it is not dead hot) and on some days I don’t. I can’t seem to make up my mind on whether this summer is fun or not, thanks to the unbearable heat. To ensure you enjoy the most of what summer has to offer, here are 5 tips for a healthy summer –

 

Drink plenty of fluids and infuse your water

I have drinking plenty of ice-cold fluids because I won’t be able to go on without doing so. Drinking plenty of fluids is a smart way to stay hydrated. I am always with a water bottle. I can easily get carried away with work and all, and go hours without having a drink. But having water with me at all times reminds me to drink.

Another smart to get yourself to drink more water is to infuse the water with flavour. You can infuse with limes, lemons, oranges, berries, or cucumbers, to make a refreshing taste. It is a great way to drink more water if you are not a fan of drinking water. If I had my way, I would drink soft drinks all day, but thanks to infusing my water, I get to drink more water.

I recently got these Duralex Oicardie Clear 6 Tumbler Set some weeks ago. And I know it sounds cheesy but I love drinking in them. They are so pretty. This set of six Duralex Picardie Tumblers is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can grab at a set at John Lewis, Selfridges, Ocado, Habitat and other stores for £8.

 

Apply Sunscreen and wear weather appropriate clothing

The last thing you would need this summer is a sun burn. So ensure you apply your sunscreen regularly. Staying out of the sun when it is dead warm is best. I still see a lot of people having picnics and tanning in this weather and I really don’t get it. Having a picnic when it is dead warm makes no sense. I rather eat indoors thank you.

Wearing weather appropriate clothing also ensures comfort at all times. I recently stocked my wardrobe with hats, sunglasses, shorts and camisoles, and I am enjoying styling them. Minimal clothing is what this weather needs.

Make the most of the sunshine

It is easy to moan and whine about how terribly warm the weather is at the moment. But whenever I remember the Beast of the East, and how horribly cold and long last winter was, I appreciate how much the sun is shinning. Summer is a beautiful season and I plan to make the most of it with the family.

Fashion & Style Police Interviews Rebecca Warwick/Regal Rose

So I had the privilege of interviewing one of the talented ladies behind the famous jewellery brand – Regal Rose, and it was a fun chat. Regal Rose was launched in 2009 by twin sisters Louise and Rebecca Warwick, and they release two collections a year. Their designs are super quirky and creative, and has been spotted on the Xfactor UK, Rita Ora & Ellie Goulding, and in magazines such as Grazia, LOOK, and Cosmopolitan.

This promises to be a good read, so grab a cuppa and get comfy.

Where do you get your inspiration from for your designs?

Up until a few weeks back myself and Louisa were the sole designers for each seasonal collection. Our inspiration for each design comes from a wide range of areas including our favourite childhood films like Alice in Wonderland, Labrynth, Edwards Scissor Hands, Return to Oz and Legend. Nature also plays it’s part in our work; we find inspiration everywhere we go, from the colours and forms of plants and flowers to the tones and shapes of the winter and spring months. We spend a lot of time researching, brain storming and focus heavily on ‘up and coming’ trends, whilst always pushing to stay well ahead in the jewellery design sector. More recently, the design team has grown and we now work very closely with the team.

How do you cope in the competitive fashion industry?

Not to badly! We stay focused on our own business. I think that’s key. After all, we want to lead, not follow. We’re lucky enough to be both
creative and business minded, so we really do enjoy the designing and the competitive nature of the fashion industry.

What advice would you give anyone thinking of setting up a jewellery line?

Work hard and stay focused. Nothing just happens, the more effort you put in the more results you will get (Obvious but so important!). Stay focused and plan your strategy. Stay away from following other brands, make your own print.

Where do you see Regal Rose in 5 years?

Our designs are currently stocked at ASOS, Free People, Urban Outfitters US and Selfridges. We hope to be stocked by many more large retailers in 5 years time. We’re also working on growing our team!

What do you think of the Fashion and Style Police blog?

We think its great! Very informative. There’s always something interesting to read. We feel there’s a underlining ‘realness’ to the blog and is
refreshingly down to earth.
