This month’s wishlist is gonna be less of a wishlist, and more of a summer essentials list. I’m writing this post in advance, because, as you already know I’m in Chios island for my cousin’s wedding, and I’m already in a summer holidays mood. Since we have hot summer weather here in Greece, all I can think lately is the beach, summer cocktails, and beautiful items to make my summer vacations more special. This post is a bit different from the usual wishlists I do, and I hope you welcome it with excitement. hehe
The photos of the items were taken from the sites linked below

So which are the summer essentials for every girl out there?
Just imagine you’re in a gorgeous beach with amazingly clear blue waters, lying in a sunbed, under an umbrella to protect you from the sun, hearing the relaxing sound of the waves….Just you, your friends or boyfriend, and a yummy cocktail on your hand. What else do you need?
For starters, you need your beautiful new bikini, in a lovely color such as red (8 – Zimmermann Frill Bandeau Bikini) or blue (12 – L*space Adia Bandeau Bikini), your panama (3) or floppy hat (14), and a beach bag (16). Another summer essential is the sunglasses. Whether it’s a classic black pair, like these Ray-Ban ‘Classic Wayfarer’ Polarized Sunglasses (1), a brown tortoise one like these Ray-Ban ‘Folding Wayfarer’ Sunglasses (6), which are so easy to carry around, or a more modern pair like these yellow ASOS Round Sunglasses With Pink Mirrored Lens (7). To walk around the beach or the pool, what’s better than a plastic pair like those Melissa Lua Leaf Flat sandals (13) or those Tommy Hilfiger, Beverly Thong Jelly Flat sandals (15)? How cute are these bows? hehe The perfect addition to a pool outfit, is a bright-colored statement necklace! I loved this Square Tube Link Neon Bib Necklace (4) by Blu Bijoux. So bright, and cheerful! And of course a pretty lady needs pretty nails as well. Paint your nails in summer colors like this hot pink/purple one by Nars (9), this grass green one by POP (5), or this Nars one again, called Pokerface (2).
Do you need anything else for a day at the beach/pool? Just grab your beach towel, load music to your mp3, and go! And don’t forget your sunscreen (11)! You can have a tropic tan, without skipping the sunscreen! Especially if you’re fair skinned like me, use a high SPF (at least until you get a bit of color!), to avoid sunburns, freckles, and early skin aging.
I wish you all to have a fantastic month!
Tomorrow, I’ll be back from my holidays, and I’ll have a new post for you really soon!

Yes, a very beautiful wishlist! I thought, when I saw it, that red is my favorite color, but I never had a red bikini… time to change it! The Rayban wayfarers I have, they are great (I have a great picture wearing them in Greece!) and yes, what for a great thing to have the boyfriend and cocktails on a beautiful beach?
I really liked your selection, it’s really summery!
I am a bit in a hurry, cause today I’ll pick the new passport! I am eager to see your pictures of Chios and the wedding!!! Hope you are enjoying it a lot there!

Hey Denise! I’m finally back home, and I’m returning back to my reality, and everyday life. Although I feel quite tired and lazy to do anything….
Glad you liked my wishlist. It was a bit different this month. Hope everything went well with your new passport. I still have to load all pics from my trip to my pc, and then decide on the posts, and the photos that I will use, before I edit them. So for sure, they will come from Monday on…definitely not sooner….
We’ll talk again soon, and I’ll visit your blog to see what I’ve missed while I was in Chios!
The colorful sunglasses, bags nail polishes – everything screams summer, vacation and beach! It feels so good 😀
