Summer Inspiration

What does summer mean to you? Maybe it’s having a BBQ in your garden or going to the seaside. This blog post is tips for ways to enjoy summer and activity ideas. Please feel to leave your own ideas in the comments box.

1.) Go summer clothes shopping! I love all the pretty sandals and beachwear clothing that hits the shops. Maybe pick a trend you would like to incorporate into your summer wardrobe.

2.) Paint your nails/toenails bright summery colours. This is something I love to do. Models own do some fab neon shades or you could pick some pretty pastels too.

3.) Create a summer pinterest board. I’ve already done this. In fact all the images shown in this post are from my pinterest page. Link as follows: http://www.pinterest.com/capstick13/summer-awaits/

4.) Buy an ice cream from an ice cream van. This brings back memories for me as a kid always listening for the ice cream van. My favourite kind is either a 99 or a lemon top.

5.) Read a glossy magazine in your garden or in a park. Simple things like this always make me feel good. My favourite choice of magazine is either Look or Company. I love the fashion and beauty pages most :-)

6.) Go to the nearest beach. Luckily for me I live very close to the beach. If the weather is kind you can have a dip in the sea or a sunbathe.

7.) Try a new sport activity. As a family we like to play tennis on holiday. We reserve a tennis court and have a few games. It could be any sport though. Volleyball is a great one if you are at the beach.

8.) Hire a bouncy castle. Great if you have lots of younger family members but adults can have a go too. It would make a great reason for a summer party and it’s something a bit different.

9.) Watch summery films. The perfect way to do this would be on an ipad or laptop that way you can watch it in the sun. I personally love Blue Crush and Blue Crush 2.

10.) Go sightseeing. This could be anywhere. Places like Brighton and Blackpool would be ace. You could go for a day trip or a weekend away.
