We've been hit by a heatwave, but don't panic, these cute and practical fans will keep you cool on the go!

We're not ones to moan, but let's face it, things can get a little hot and stuffy when the temperature FINALLY gets above 25 degrees in this country. 

Life doesn't stop just because summer's finally decided to rear it's head, but there ARE some simple ways you can stay on top of things and not let the heat get to you.


1. Go Travel Micro Fan: £11, Amazon

Just because it's hot, there's no need for you to stop looking cool! 

If someone caught sight of this super slick mini fan out of the corner of their eye, they might just be fooled into thinking it's a trendy hip flask... although on second thoughts, maybe that's not the best plan of action!
