Summer

Smells Like Summer

Summer actually starts on the 21st June – but to me, it’s already begun. I think that summer starts as soon as I start walking around the house shirtless. Then there’s the first summer BBQ, first swim, the first tan, a drink on the beach and normally a summer party would be on that list… but probably not this year.

Through sacrifice from all, the number of Covid19 cases has dropped significantly and keeps dropping further, so it looks like we’ll be having as normal a summer as we could possibly have under the circumstances. 

You know what that means, food, drinks, beaches, restaurants, bars and everything that makes summer so amazing. 

After spending so much time indoors, it might be time to check out all your favourite online shops and have everything you need for summer delivered right to your door!

Life’s a Beach!

Have you been to the beach yet? The sea might be too cold for the faint hearted right now, but the sun is perfect for getting that first tan without many of the consequences of the mid-summer sun. I like to check out Which Beach? before deciding where to go, it helps me to steer clear of the jellyfish.

A new summer calls for new swimwear and there are loads of amazing Local Online Shops to choose from in MVM’s newly created Swimwear category. Whether you’re going for something expensive or looking for a bargain, sexy or funky, men’s or ladies, you’re sure to find something you like.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for here, I’ll be very surprised. You’re sure to find something to suit all budgets and all styles in MVM’s Fashion category

Time for a BBQ

I love a good BBQ and I’m often the one who ends up doing the cooking, so I take a keen interest in what BBQ to pick and I enjoy having the right utensils. 

You will find all this and more in the Household Goods and Appliances categories of MVM or if you know exactly what you’re looking for, try search for it. Eg. Heat Resistant BBQ Glove. 

But there’s one product I’m definitely happy to have purchased in preparation for this BBQ season. It’s the Food Wrap from Frank Wrap.
