The sound of summer

Every summer there seems to be one hit that stands out, that feel good vibe that makes you smile. This summer has been pretty epic for us, my first summer off full time work and filled with adventures and slow days in equal measure. Though our holiday in Malta at the end has been the icing on the cake. One that I'll never forget and I'm sure one that many of these summer songs will transport me back to.


We brought our MyVQ Hepburn II radio on holiday with us, it's a gorgeous new release and collaboration with Laura Ashley so has a beautiful pale blue floral print on it too. It's portable, Bluetooth compatible and has DAB radio so we took it on holiday with us and it joined us on our beach days and pool days.


Nothing like kids playing, an ice cold drink in hand and some summer tunes.


Here's what was on our summer Spotify playlist, many chosen by the girls too.
