What do you need to enjoy a British Summer? It’s all here in HAYLEY NOLAN’s guide to getting ready for the sun! So if you’ve not even thought about bikini’s or sunburn then do not fear, Hayley’s done all the thinking for you – you just need to hit the shops! (Don’t worry lazy bums, you can do it all online!)

First thing’s first – it wouldn’t be summer without a breezy cocktail in the sun. And before we even contemplate doing any shopping I say we sit down with Bermuda’s national cocktail courtesy of Gosling’s Rum. Captain Jack Sparrow would approve, it’s called dark and stormy and it’s my all time fave!

Of course if you’re sipping this as you should be (whilst sunbathing on a white sandy beach of course) then you’ll want a to-die-for bikini! Look no further than BonPrix who have an amazing selection of bright and bold bikinis and swimsuits - yes, to suit all body types! Now I’m a decidedly A cup but their black Frilly Halterneck Bikini flattered my shape so much I insisted on wearing it fora 6 page spread in this July’s issue of Cosmopolitan magazine! So if it’ good enough for Cosmo…!!

Now whether you’re sunbathing or just ambling round the Summer fete you must must must put on your sun cream. Don’t make the mistake of forgetting, as you’ll pay for it before you realise with damaged skin and premature wrinkles (so not a good look.) So thank the French for organic skincare range Melvita bringing out their very own factor 15 to 30. No need to rub in harsh chemicals when you want to protect your skin, Melvita has an aromatic almond scent to it which feels lovely on the skin, especially when you know it’s so good for you!

If you’re going for a truly British Summer the you’ll have to prepare for rain! And no, I don’t mean by getting an umberella, I’m talking indoor entertainment, and what better way to keep the family occupied than with a DVD – something the HBO online store have in abundance! Their online store sells everything from the classics such as Sex and the City, to my personal favourite comedy series Flight of the Conchords (HBO really should talk those lads into making a series 3!) Not forgetting HBO’s recent hits Boardwalk Empire and True Blood! The store also has all the merchandise superfans will want to own – so you can cover up with a Soprano’s Bada Bing T-Shirt on the beach! (store.hbouk.com)

Now get booking that holiday – or for now, get the sun lounger out in the garden and pretend you’re in Barbados!
