Summer is officially here, which means pool parties and trips to the beach. Are you ready? Getting ready for fall is so much easier than getting ready for summer. For fall all you have to do is put on more clothes, stay inside, and eat comfort food – I like that kind of prep work. But lets stay on topic … getting ready for summer. I will show you how to do it in 5 easy steps.
Step 1: Shop
Nothing motivates and excites more than a good old fashioned shopping trip. Buy your swimwear, beach bag, towels, sunglasses, and various summer appropriate beauty products. The swimsuit being the key purchase. This one buy will make you want to get fit, pretty, and hair-free.
Step 2: Hair Care
This particular change of season is perfect for a hair change up. Go lighter, go shorter, go lower maintenance. The last thing you want to do is work on your hair when the pool parties are popping. I for one, went lighter and bit shorter for the summer.Step 3: The “Other” Hair
You’ve got to get your groom on for summer. Skipping a day of shaving or missing your monthly wax isn’t going to work this summer. On a regular basis I am definitely a shaver but for summer I’m experimenting with waxing.
Step 4: Stock Up on Reading Materials
I love having a few good books or magazines in my arsenal to read at the pool or the beach. Head to your local book store and geek out for a few hours. Added bonus, bookstores blast the AC.Manage Your Day-to-Day // Secrets of Stylists // Who What Wear
Step 5: Work on Your Fitness
It’s easy to get lazy during the summer months. You worked out all winter to prepare for summer, don’t let all that hard work go to waste. Take up a fun outdoor activity like hiking or swimming. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did it.
