Intern's Pick: This Summer's Best Beach Accessories! July 20 2014, 0 Comments

July is in full blast, the thermometer has started to go crazy in London and we are really considering to run away to the closest beach as soon as possible! So we want to share with you our best accessories for this hot hot season!

To begin, we have to think of the most beautiful summer spot we can imagine and, of course, we end up in one of the best Ibiza beaches: Cala Sant Vicente, in the north of the Island.

Now that we are there we need something to lie on and that’s why we took our beautiful Kenyan Kikoy with us! This handwoven cotton scarf is so comfy and practical, that even when the wind starts to blow it can be put around your neck or on your shoulder and warm you up! 

Hopefully the sand won't burn our feet, but if it does no problem! As luckily we took with us our lovely mumbai leather sandals. The quality and softness of the leather make these shoes perfect to walk around on the beach but be careful not to get surprised by the waves, they wouldn't enjoy the bath much!

The last thing we need is something to put our sun cream, books, sunglasses... and so we found our gorgeous and practical handwoven summer bag waiting for us. The fact that it is made from sheep wool and dyed with natural colorants make it perfectly able to handle all this sun! 

What we are missing now, is the perfect drink so we'll share with you our perfect recipe cocktail to refresh us while we get our lovely tan: the delicious and easy to make sweet strawberry and lime Mojito!

What you need:

  • 2 large strawberries
  • 1/2 juiced lime
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons of super fine sugar
  • 2 shots of white rum
  • 1 cup of ice
  • Schweppes Club soda 

What to do:

Put into a cockail shaker strawberries, fresh lime juice, mint and sugar and shake shake shake until the strawberries are broken and the mint leaves are torn apart.

Put some rum and ice and shake vigorously again. Finally you pour the cocktail with ice into a glass and add a splash of club soda. 

 

And if you can't go that far, to Ibiza and to the beach, come by our lovely boutique in Camden and we will show you our favourite and best Mojito and Caipirinha bar in Camden: The Spiritual Caipirinha Bar! ;) Happy Summer!
