It’s that time of year again! The temperature is slowly rising and we are sooooo excited!
Can you believe it’s already December? Time flies when you’re having fun, which is why its important to be ready to make the most of every moment under the sun. To help to celebrate the start of our favourite season we’ve compiled a list of our must-do’s in summer.
HIT THE BEACH/POOL
If you ain’t get some rays, your summer hasn’t started! We love chilling by the sun – utter relaxation, warmth and vitamin D that instantly improves our mood. If you have a pool of your own you’re in luck, but if not, hang out with someone who does, visit your local public swimming centre OR take a fun road trip down to your favourite beach. Don’t forget to pack the essentials – swimmers, sunglasses and a towel!
GET SOME SHADE
It wouldn’t be a list from us without a mention of our favourite accessory. SUNGLASSES OF COURSE! We have oversized sunnies by our side year round, but in summer they are particularly useful for:
- Getting some major style points on the beach
- Helping us see through crazy sun glare and protecting our eyes
- Ensuring nobody recognises we are hungover from too many cocktails the night before – guilty!!
TRAVEL SOMEWHERE NEW
You guys should know by now how OBSESSED we are with are with travelling, and summer is the perfect time to escape. We’re not very cold weather inclined ourselves… but if a white Christmas is more your style, head on up to the Northern Hemisphere to experience the chill.
If you’re sticking to sun, sand and cocktails – Cancun, Fiji, Hawaii, Bali and Thailand are all great choices.
Once you’ve booked your vacay, the next thing you have to worry about is packing. Read our tips to help you pack for your summer escape to get started.
EXPLORE WHERE YOU LIVE
No big vacay planned? Never fear! There is no better way to flex your travel muscles than to explore where you live. Think of yourself like a tourist in your own city or state, and do the things you wouldn’t usually do as a local. It’s easy to feel bored when you’re in the same place every day, but you’d be surprised at the number of amazing sights to see and incredible activities within your reach.
We are a little guilty of going into hibernation when winter hits, so take the warmer weather as an opportunity to be social! There are soooo many events throughout summer that you can attend with your besties or take as a chance to meet new people.
You have all the time in the world to Netflix and chill… so call up your girlfriends, buy those tickets, book that weekend away and put yourself out there!
Just writing this list has us excited for what’s to come!
Can’t wait to share our summer with you babes.
