It's late September, the air is crisp and cool, the nights are drawing in and the trees are preparing for the changing season. Summer will soon become a memory and that holiday in the sun will feel like it happened a lifetime ago. It's understandable to feel a sense of loss at this time of year - although the autumn can be just as warm and colourful. For this edition of The Sun Room, I thought it would nice to feature some ideas that can help us hold on to summer just a while longer, a few treats to trigger memories of sunshine and help us to look forward.
From our friends at Kiss Air Candles, we recommend their Sun Kissed Raspberry soy candle. Burn this candle and be transported to the garden with summer fruits ripening in the sun. Perfect for adding a bit of sunshine to a grey day. These large tins have a burn time of up to 30 hours, so your summery fragrance will last and last. You can buy this candle from www.kiss-air.com
Our second treat is so much fun and will transport you pool side in an instant. It's also very practical for the winter months too, when we need to give our hands a little TLC. This hand cream is from a selection of cocktail inspired products from the wonderful Boozi Body Care. There are lots of fragrances to choose from, including Mojito and Kir Royal - my favourite is the tropical Peach & Passion Fruit Bellini - which lives in my handbag at this time of year. The warm scent lasts for ages and melts into the skin. Gorgeous!
The iconic summer holiday cocktail has to be a Pina Colada. Lets face it, it's practically sunshine in a glass... with a cherry and an umbrella on top. As the nights draw in and you are dreaming of a cheeky cocktail, we invite you to put your slippers on, grab a blanket and enjoy these creamy pineapple & coconut lollies with a kick of real white rum. These grown up sweet treats are handmade by Holly's Lollies and come in a variety of summery flavours.
Are you feeling warmed up yet? Good!
Of course one cure for the loss of summer is to look forward and plan your next beach holiday. If that's you then why not keep all your important documents, passports, reservations and brochures in one of our handy pouches. All ready for when you jet off to the sun. You can find these in our Accessory Dept.
So, my lovelies, what ever this change of season brings, lets embrace it and enjoy it because this wonderfull world of ours is sure to keep on turning and summer will be here again.
