Summer is my favourite time of year! On a bright sunny day, I love nothing more than to be outdoors, pottering around the garden, out and about in the countryside, or better still, walking along the beach as the pupsters dig in the sand or paddle in the surf! It was a gorgeous warm day when I decided it was time to film my Summers Favourites video, so naturally, I filmed it outdoors.
Watch the video to find out what products I have been loving in the summer months. Included in this video are products from a variety of categories: Health and Beauty, Kitchenware, Planners, Household Cleaning, Gardening… and Tim shares 3 of his recent favourite board games too!
Read on to find links to our favourite products. And if you would like to see what made it on my list of March favourites, you can find out here.

Decadent indeed, but this feather duster does exactly what I need it to – and makes dusting of delicate and fragile objects a task I no longer dread.
WizMop Spray Mop and Window Cleaner
Similar to the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop, this clever product can be used either as a spray mop, or the head can be switched out to one specifically designed to clean windows, with a soft pad on one side, and a squeegee on the other.
These may look gimicky but they are actually very handy around the gardening whether for weeding or planting.
