So it may be Labor Day this upcoming Monday, however the weather is not letting go of Summer temperatures where I’m located. It is 90-100 with 60-70% humidity, basically it feels like I have been living on top of the equator in rainforests its so deadly hot out. We aren’t able to go to our cabin due to this heat which has everyone a little cranky.
Rather than be grumpy and whiny about the heat, I decided I would enjoy it and take in Summer’s official last weekend. I’ll be hanging out by the lake enjoying this new gem of a cocktail I discovered on Pinterest. It’s non-alcoholic and perfect for kids. It’s a detox drink and can be made in a large pitcher for guests. It’s really easy to make and super refreshing on super hot days.
Strawberries (about 10)
Mint Leaves (depending on how strong of a mint taste you want)
Lemon (again, depending on how much lemon taste you want)
Chop up strawberries, mint leaves and squirt lemon into water with lots of ice. Enjoy!
It’s about that time of the year, Spring Break! Although I’m no longer in college, I still like to “pretend” I am by going on a yearly spring break trip. In attempt to avoid popular spring break vacation spots that I know will be filled with drunk college students, I have called my resort in advance to know how many students will be staying there. To my surprise not many!
So what’s a girl need to prepare before the big vacation? Number one on my list, hitting the gym! There is nothing more rewarding than working my butt off in the gym and feeling confident in my string bikini on the beach. Next on the list, purchase a few clothing items. I never go out of control purchasing a whole new wardrobe, but it’s always nice to wear some new things while spoiling myself on vacation. I wait until the week before vacation to color my hair, get a mani/pedi and drag my butt in for waxing in Huntington Beach. It’s painful but oh so worth it! Next on the list? Get a nice large cocktail at the airport and wait till I reach paradise !
