With summer 2018 finally here, BN1 has created the perfect summer survival guide, to help you get the most out of the warm weather.

When leaving your house to embark on a glorious sunny adventure, there are a few things which you just cannot leave without:

  • Sun cream – particularly for the fairer heads out there, this is one absolute necessity one must carry round with at all times. No one wants to be walking around with a red face.
  • Hay Fever tablets – if you ask anyone who is mildly or majorly affected by hay fever, they will tell you it can make or break a summer. Just one tablet a day will keep that pollen away, so keep them on you at all times.
  • A hat – With temperatures hitting new levels this summer, it will be vital for some to have some protection from the sun. Whether it’s to cover your eyes or the top of your head, wearing a hat this summer could be very important.

Staying hydrated:

Throughout the summer, it is important to drink lots – and how can you best do that? Locate your nearest pub garden of course! As any fellow Brit will tell you, there is no better combination than alcohol and good weather – but alternate alcoholic beverages with water to avoid dehydration.

Music:

Creating your summer playlist is without doubt one of the most important preparations for any summer outings. Whether it be hip hop, house, R&B, rock, a summer playlist will start your day off the right way.

Summer BBQs:

When it comes to eating food over the summer, there is only one way to go about it, and that’s buying a disposable BBQ. Possibly one of the greatest inventions known to man. These can be used at the beach, in a field, or even your own back garden. This item is an absolute necessity for them long summer nights.

Alternative Clothing:

We all know just how difficult the weather can be in the UK, and it would be wise to be ready for that inevitable change. It is not rare to witness record temperatures to be followed by a thunder storm that night. For this reason, carrying around a light jacket would ensure you are not left regretting your earlier choices.

Gadgets:

Keeping on top of your gadgets will be key in making the most of your time outdoors this summer. Items such as portable chargers or pocket speakers will make any outing even more enjoyable. Never be caught out by your phone battery, blast out the summer tunes and make the most of the limited time in the sun.

Staying cool:

One of the best ways to enjoy the heat this summer is to have a cold beverage with you at all times. However, this can be harder than it seems unless you have the right tools. A drinks cooler is the ideal piece of equipment for the summer and the perfect way to ensure your drinks stay ice-cold.
