..........A few pictures from my wonderful Summer.........
On the ski boat while volunteering at my Summer camp
(A little disheveled from wakeboarding)
Shopping in NYC at one of my new favorite stores, Pinkyotto
Trying out my first BISON burger in Ohio! (Do you know that Bison has less fat, calories, AND cholesterol than CHICKEN?!?!? WHO KNEW?!?!?)
Hi everyone! I would like to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to all my wonderful followers! Follow me on Twitter too if you just can't get enough of me! (Haha, joking, but really.) I love reading all of your comments and getting to know everyone! Feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org ! I would LOVE to hear all of your suggestions for future blog posts or give any advice!
Since sweet summertime is starting to come to a close (the only reason I am partially o.k. with that is because I can wear my Coach boots and Burberry scarf,) I have decided to hang on to the last ray of summer sunshine with this blog post.
Here are some things that help me enjoy the last second of Summer. Since I live in sunny Florida, I have a little bit more time than some of you. BUT, Summer can be a STATE OF MIND! Being a Floridian, I DO NOT follow the rule of "No White After Labor Day." HELLO. What a dumb rule! What fashion racist came up with that?!?!? AND they didn't make up the term "winter whites" out of no where. I am not saying to bust out your white Jack Rogers in the middle of January, I am just saying to not follow these ancient fashion rules! Think about it, if Coco Chanel didn't break the rigid fashion constraints of the 1920's, we might still be wearing petticoats and corsets! YUCK!
Summer Lovin' these things...
A Deliciously Refreshing Drink
I found this amazing recipe for a deliciously fruity summer drink in Southern Living Magazine. It makes a beautiful watermelon drink that will cool you off after a hot summer day! I think that this drink would be PERFECT to make for a chic BBQ party! I would serve the drink a clear cocktail glass (because it would already be pretty and pink) and garnish with a small chunk of watermelon! I love the above picture that I found on SlashFood. They stuck a straw through the chunk of watermelon!
Watermelons are also SUPER healthy and full of lycopene! (The awesome antioxidant that helps prevent disease! Yummy and healthy!)
Take 4 cups seedless watermelon and 1/4 cup sugar in a blender until smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed. Pour through a wire strainer, discarding the solids. Stir in 2 cups cold water. Cover and chill for about an hour. Serve over ice
I actually have these Paige Denim jeans from last year and apparently they haven't changed! The only thing that HAS changed is that I spent $179 for these suckers! Even though I just maaaay be a little bitter about that, they are a really great style and match almost everything, especially pretty colorful silk tops!
OK, I realize I am killing myself here as a Gator fan listing jean shorts as one of my favorite Summer things. If you are not familiar with the Florida Gators, many other (jealous) teams like to say "Gator Fans Wear Jean Shorts" as a dig. Well, I do wear jean shorts and I like them. My outfit of choice for Gator games although is always a pretty sundress. But I digress. I will take that dig, and I will embrace my love of jean shorts. I have these Forever21 shorts and they are SO cute!
Above I have include a picture I took at the Florida Georgia Game (aka the World's Largest Cocktail Party) of a jealous Georgia fan with his lovely sign to prove I did not make this diss up. I mean, I would take the jorts dig any day over being forced to hang out with this homeboy. (If you are wondering what the creepy blur on the left is I blurred out one of my innocent friend's faces so that she was not associated with this degenerate. Go Gators.)
A Great Summer Jam
If you aren't familiar with Shwayze, they are an awesome rap/rock band out of Cali. They have a great feel-good-tap-your-steering-wheel-bounce-in-your-chair-with-a-grimace kind of sound. I am loving their new song "Get U Home" and think it is going to be a big hit. Take a listen and check out the music video!
Now go enjoy your last bit of SUMMER!!!
