The smell of the summer has got to be coconut. One sniff and immediately I am transported back to a beach somewhere (probably in the Med) and I’m being slathered in Hawaiian Tropic Factor 15. It was the early 80s, kids got a tan in those days. My mum was probably fully oiled up with the Factor 2, aiming for the full mahogany look to go with her perm. I digress, coconut is where it is at in the summer. I can’t get enough of it.
The sun is out and summer is finally here. I have been getting my coconut fix in a number of ways (and no, I have not been eating Bounty bars).
This yogurt is amazing. It is utterly delicious. You need it in your life, believe me. (Incidentally, my cousin pointed out that the h has disappeared from yoghurt in the last few years…where could it be? There definitely used to be an h and now no more. Did they decide it was too difficult for the younger generation? They can’t handle the h, obviously)
If you’re feet are anything like mine (and I hope for your sake that they are not), they will need a little prep and pampering before they make an appearance on the beach (or even just into a pair of sandals). This cream is the business. Smells good too.
I found these being sold in a health food shop and jumped on them as if my life depended on it. Frozen coconut milk. Need I say more?
And finally, I love Rachel Castle‘s work and this one has my name on it.
