Britain is still in the throws of a heatwave, which means 3 things; BBQ’s, day drinking and complaining that it’s “hot isn’t it?!”

Feel the burn

Everyone know how important it is to protect your skin from harmful UV rays when it’s sweltering out… including festival officials/park wardens/fucking busybodys. Just wash out an old suncream bottle and, easy as that, you’ve got a brand new flask for your drink of choice.
