It's been so long, my exams are over and it's time for S U M M E R 16 and I've been in the summer vibe SO MUCH, I made a few changes to the homepage! Also, because I've been MIA and I want to make it up to my creative self and readers, you can expect a post EVERY MONDAY! (to get rid of the Monday Blues) ....little reading, plenty photos!
To kick-off what I like to call a "RushCamSummer", I thought I'd share the 6 summer staples for ALL readers! Here goes!
1. A J-O-B
Oh, lol you thought that this was a post where you'd hear about all the magical and impractical hopes and dreams we have for summer fro m tumblr and pinterest. No, if you're gonna enjoy summer in it's truest sense you'll need a job for one or both of two reasons: a. Money/Income b. It's a way to pass time! (Warning: Some days your face will look exactly like this)
Ps. You don't need to be SUPER dressy. A simple shirt and tie will suffice. (Girls you have it easy as we)
To look your BEST, you should be sporting a tie from @alltiedupjamaica!
The Summer is HOT! and water is great (remember 8 glasses a day) but the vitamins and nutrients found in fruits are invaluable! and this is the season for everything! So ...eat up! Have you ever had a nice cold watermelon on a summer day? Believe me! BEST!
Also, , it's a nice addition to the instagram feed (for my friends who are into that stuff lol)
3. A SUMMER EVENTS LIST
Every season, whether soca, gospel crusade, dancehall etc...you NEED a list of things you MUST attend, places you must go! Things you must see!
This summer I wanna spend some time in Negril, Jamaica! Go to a fancy party. Spend all day on a float. Play football. Read a book!
I love shorts! Beach shorts, casual shorts, denim shorts, patterned shorts etc....but the summer heat no longer makes it an option but a requirement! Always remember to lotion and moisturize when wearing shorts. If I could wear them to church I would!
If you have jeans to turn into shorts....DIY!
5. MOSQUITO REPELLENT
speaking of shorts.............
ZIKA VIRUS 2016 . NEED I SAY MORE? OKAY....thought so
6. YOUR BEST SUMMER BODY
Okay, so here's my theory....we can't all look like Jlo and Tyson Beckford but, we can be the best version of ourselves. So whether you exercise once a week or 7 times a week...find something that works for you! Your summer body is inside and out. So eat properly, exercise and stay confident :D
Thanks SO MUCH for reading! I hope you enjoy your weekend and this post! Let me know what you think about this post!
-Get Up. Dress Up. Show Up.
