Sunday Sunbathing

Hasn't the weather been utterly glorious this weekend? It's been quite a shock to the system, especially seeing as I haven't actually unpacked my summer clothes yet (I've just been buying new ones and using it as an excuse.) My Sunday has been spent catching up on chillaxing time, reading my book and the latest Elle magazine, listening to tunes and drinking a can of Rekorderlig. I've seen a lot of people buring this weekend though, so I just wanted to say: DON'T FORGET THE SPF! It's so very important to use a sunscreen, even when you're out and about and don't think you're going to get exposed. Trust me, you will. You need to get a high factor SPF and ensure you reapply throughout the day. I'm going to do a post soon on sunscreens, but for the meantime read up on the facts here. Happy sunny Sunday!



  1. Love your blog and this post, definitely an important topic to share with people but the "factor" of sun screen doesn't determine how long the sun cream will last on your skin, it refers to how much UVB protection it provides, wearing SPF 50 unfortunately doesn't mean it will last longer on your skin than SPF 15, it just offers more protection for near enough the same amount of time

  2. The SPF factor refers to how long your skin will be protected from UVA/B in comparison to how long it would normally take to burn. So if you wear an SPF 15 you can sit out in the sun 15 x longer than normal; if you wear SPF 40 you can sit out 40 x longer.

    There's definitely a massive difference between SPF 15 and 50! It's important people understand this as there's so much misunderstanding.

  3. Also its not all about the SPF but the star rating of UVB protection too! Amazing weather this weekend, I hope your making the most of it!


  4. Sun Sun Sun... I hope it continues through this week, as i worked most of the last :)
