Poolside favourites

I’ve only been back from France a few days but I already miss it.
Lying around the pool, reading, napping, swimming…
Just living the good life really.

I still have photos to share from our trip to Cannes and another dinner in Cabris.
But for now I wanted to share my poolside favourites.

Poolside favourites // L.Alexandra

◊ A big towel.
◊ A sunhat- the last thing you want is a heatstroke. This one isn’t that practical so I tend to take along a baseball cap too.
◊ Bikini. Duh. I like to mix and match mine to make it more interesting but I try to keep the same style to avoid the strange tan lines.
◊ An iPod.
◊ Daylong sunscreen.
◊ A Kindle or a book.
◊ A big bottle of cold water. If you’re spending the day somewhere further from home place a teabag into the bottle so you can still drink it once the water is warm.

Let me just get back to the sunscreen. Daylong is by far the best sunscreen I know.
Put it on in the morning, wait 20 min and that’s it.
You’re set for the day.
Plus the face one smells so good.

I read The Great Gatsby for the first time and really enjoyed it.
Looking forward to seeing the movie now.
My favourite quote from the book has to be:
“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Cool off with ice cream and dips into pool.

Hope you’re having a great summer!
