The last beach days

Summer is coming to a close, and we can’t help but feel nostalgic vibes as we’re enjoying the last beach days. Starting the day early, breakfast on the beach, long walks, colourful bikinis, flip-flops and swimming in the sea are all things to be missed until next summer!

These are some shots we did this weekend in one of my all time favourite beaches in the Netherlands, Katwijk aan Zee. It is such an amazing place, where I always feel instantly happy and relaxed. What I love most about it is that it’s not very touristic and it not only has a beautiful beach, but also a nice city to walk around and get some lunch or dinner. Can you believe that this place is just 35 minutes away from Amsterdam?

Each time I pass by, I can’t help but have a delcious ice-cream from Pistacchio IJs. It is just fabulous, Italian style ice-cream and one of the best I have tried in the Netherlands. The mango & yogurt forest fruit is my favpurite, and although I’m sure it’s not as healthy as my homemade two ingredient banana ice cream, it’s made from quality ingredients and it’s definitely worth it on a hot summer day.

This year I fell in love with the Sun Care line from Collistar and have been using these products since the beginning of summer. I never got a burn, and I ended up with a perfect tan.

I love that their products come in different textures and SPF’s, which is great because you can use them for different body parts or occasions. An absolute favourite has been this Sun Stick, which is so practical as it can be used for small and sensible areas like the lips or to protect pigmented spots. Also, I loved the Protective Oil Spray for Hair, which I applied before swimming in the sea, and has kept my hair shiny and hydrated all summer long.

Besides them, the other products that I used this summer for my skin are are:

ULTRA PROTECTION TANNING CREAM SPF 30
MOISTURIZING TANNING SPRAY SPF 20
SUPERTANNING DRY OIL SPF 15
