Summer Essentials!

Summer is well and truly coming! Although if you live in Australia, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was already here. We've been having some scorchers lately, so obviously Spring is having an identity crisis. With real Summer only a week away, it's time to start thinking about the essential items you'll need. We all know the Aussie Summer is hardcore, so to be SunSmart we should Slip, Slop, Slap! Can you believe this campaign from the Cancer Council Australia first began in 1981? It's now been updated to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide:

  • Slip on a shirt
  • Slop on sunscreen
  • Slap on a hat
  • Seek shade or shelter
  • Slide on sunglasses

Whether you're a beach bum or not, Summer is the perfect excuse time to update the wardrobe and add a few new pieces. If you're looking for inspiration, check out the Boohoo Holiday Shop for funky options at affordable prices. Plus, it's a known fact that the onset of hot weather means buying pretty pink lip products and a rainbow of pastel-coloured nail polishes is completely justified! Because Summer.
