What's in my Summer Bag?

Welcome to my first post of the #SummerBloggerChallenge. This weeks topic features the things you will always find in my bag during the summer on a regular day. Have a look and see if they are in your bag too.
what's in my summer bag?
1. Heart design tissues £3.95 for 12 packs
Everything makes my nose run so these are constantly in my bag regardless of the season. Exercise makes it run, hay-fever makes it run, eating makes it run, you name it and it'll make my nose run.


2. Kindle £59 or a book. 
Great for bus journeys and sitting in the garden with a icy cold drink. I'm on Goodreads and have set myself an easy challenge of reading 20 books this year. I plan on getting a big chunk of reading done in the sun.

3. Medication. 
As I've mentioned, I have hay-fever so I'll always have some hay-fever tablets in my bag, plus I have Addison's disease so I carry some medicine for that too.

4. Lavera Sun Cream from £8.95
I'm a pale redhead. Just a sprinkle of sun is enough to burn me. I must have been a vampire in a past life.

5. An apple or other healthy snacks. 
I get hungry... A lot. I NEED food in my bag at all times. No matter how much I pack, it's never enough.

Gotta keep hydrated, especially when it's hot. I try and take my Sigg everywhere with me. It's a high quality BPA-free metal bottle and a safe way to drink without all the hidden nasties that come with drinking from plastic. I chose this particular bottle because Cuipo is a charity that is helping save the rainforest. For every bottle purchased, a meter squared of rainforest is saved in your name. You are given a code and when you enter it into their website you actually get the coordinates to the bit of forest you've saved which I think it pretty cool..

This is one of my favourite lipbalms. I do not wear lipstick so I really like the subtle colour this leaves.

Are any of these items essential to you? What's in you everyday summer bag?

    1. When my ex got his Kindle I was so anti-Kinde but then I ended up using his more than he used it himself haha. Such a clever little gadget.

    1. I left mine in a hotel room. Devastated! It's the best one I've ever used so I'll have to buy a replacement when my other lipbalms run low.

    1. Check out Goodreads. If you like reading (and making lists) then it's amazing :D
