Hello Summer!

 Time for our steamy-hot Summer here in Oz and don't we love a trip to the beach.

But before you go, start your day with a bowl of Kellogg's Corn Flakes.

Or perhaps you are more of a Weet-Bix kid.

Or maybe coffee is more your thing.

So what are the Teens wearing at the beach? How about these swimsuits from Sea Charm. The two-piece suits have drawstrings so you can lower the waistline or go strapless. With built in bustlines,plunging backs and matching beachcoats (to avoid an embarrassing colour clash) there is something for everyone. Drip-dry and with matching belts they are on sale at all major stores throughout Australia.

Or maybe this Shoreline swimsuit in French Antron Nylon basket weave from Curzons is more your style.

Just don't forget the Ambre Solaire to keep your tan looking good.

Take a bottle of Detol for unexpected injuries.

Remember a cute chenille coverall.

Grab the Willow eskys to keep the food and drinks fresh and cool. Do you have the red or blue?

Because we must take some Heinz potato salad in a can...

 ..and a Tropical Jelpine flan.(for Brismod) Peel a can and taste the sunshine!

Got the extra roll of Kodak film to catch the fun in the sun.

Thank goodness it's Friday!!!
Have a great weekend.


  1. I've loved looking at those Summery retro ads Simmone and I wouldn't mind one of those Sutex coveralls to pop on over my bikini...must keep an eye out for one. We are in for a stinker here in Perth this weekend so a day at the beach is looking pretty good x
