#kaytips : the 5 (summer edition)
August is like… the sunday of summer. Right? I thought a kaytips for an endless summer feeling could be nice. It’s also an auto-therapy for me. I wish life could be a long, relaxing european summer. But it wouldn’t be as fun if we had all served on a silver plate right? Plus we wouldn’t enjoy it as much it if it was a long-lasting, perpetual vacation. I mean… I’d get bored and be like : what is there to do next!? Ok enough self conversation. There we go:
5 P L A C E S
They don’t have the St-tropez style or hype yet but are going to be come the next IT holiday destination, so plan a trip before they become too touristy. Europe has some beautiful, hidden, not-too-famous places that you definitely need to try once. As…
Corsica is still very preserved (probably because of its habitants) and it’s beautiful. You probably heard about the festival “Calvi on the Rocks”, maybe a good occasion to visit. I’ll choose Corsica instead of Sardinia for example (I love Sardinia, though)
Party people! This one is for you. I’m a big fan of Mykonos but I’m dying to try Hvar once. That sounds so much fun, they say it’s the new Ibiza, with less people but more fun. Gotta try.
It’s fun how even for europeans, Portugal has never been one of the highlight destinations. Why!? I mean, the beaches looks amazing! They have dreamy surf spots, crazy landscape and delicious food.
I’ve been to this breathtaking village two years ago, it’s very close to Positano and has the most incredible views ever. This place is the definition of “La Dolce Vita”, really worth the trip.
The Caribbean of Europe. This island next to Ibiza is much more quiet and the water is crystal clear. Dreamland.
5 S O N G S
There’s nothing like listening to the songs that are linked to precise memories. Especially when they remind you of good times in good company, long days at the beach, house parties and summer feelings. Here’s some that rhymes most of our moments this summer.
How Deep Is Your Love – Calvin Harris
Omen – Disclosure x Sam Smith
Trap Queen – Fetty Trap
Cant Feel My Face – The Weeknd
Watche Me – Silento
(And this… Just because Kygo is my favorite DJ and that I listened to it all this summer)
5 P E O P L E
To have a little bit of the feeling all year long, from surfers to photographers to perfect-booty-shaped models. There you go, all the people you NEED to follow on Instagram to feel like you’re kind of travelling with them at the beach even though you’re honestly just stuck in front of your computer…
5 T A N S
Moisturize like crazy
Post beach you should upgrade to moisturize everyday. In summer I like to use natural coconut oil that I usually buy directly in pharmacy. That’s the better way to hang on to sexy summer skin. Use and abuse of lotion or oils.
Cool for the summer
Shower with cool water, hot bath will make you peel faster because of the dehydration. I also recommend using an oily shower gel to keep your skin soft (I told you, use and abuse)
Drink water & Exfoliate
Hydration should definitely be inside and out that’s why you shouldn’t drink water just because it’s 30 degrees outside. It will prolong the life of all the cells, including the tanned ones at the surface and smooth the skin. Exfoliation maybe sounds crazy but one time a week, it’s important to do it to remove the dull cells.
Facial self tan
The complexion and the little freckles on your face is the first thing that people notice in summer. I don’t know for you but it’s also the part of my body that tan the less (ok, it’s because I don’t expose it at all) but I started to use this amazing James Read overnight tan mask and it’s absolutely amazing. It doesn’t contain any paraben and the tan is very soft and natural.
