THINGS YOU'VE GOT TO DO THIS SUMMER!




Summer is coming and I am so, so excited for it! Hopefully it means lots of BIG changes and new things for me and my family, we want to move house and potentially have a new baby on the way, which is very exciting and I can't wait to share my journeys with you all throughout these processes. Today my post is all about things you have to do this summer and every other summer because let's face it we don't get much sunshine in the UK. We have to fit every summer adventure into usually a 3 week period where we have excruciating heat. Then the next 3 months it's rain, rain and more rain. Let this post inspire you to do something crazy and have adventures, also leave me a comment below and let me know what you have planned for this summer!


 Go Camping

Before becoming a mum and when I was a teenager, I loved camping. I've had some really, really great adventures and in turn, great memories made from going camping. There is nothing better than getting a group of friends together and finding a field near a beach where you can just relax together and spend a few days away from all the baggage of home and work.

Go To A Festival
Good music in the sun with your favourite people is one of the best ways you can spend your summer, there are plenty of festivals going on everywhere, every single month in the Summer. Currently feeling depressed about Coachella because of all the amazing SnapChats from the Coachella feed ughhh.

Book A Holiday Somewhere You've Never Been.
It's a bit depressing just going to Magaluf the same week, every single year, yes it's full to the rafters with cheap alcopops and tanned adolescent boys armed with a white vest and chino shorts, nauseating! But when that stops appealing to you, it's time to start discovering the world. There are so many beautiful places to go and just saving that little bit extra can give you an amazing experience. My top pick for Summer 2015 is Dubai, it's absolutely stunning and I'm dying to go, but with everything that I have planned for and going on this year, I think it will be pushed back to 2016!

Eat Clean 
Summer is a great time to start eating healthier, of course it's important all year round, but Summer makes us all want to eat fresh fruit and salads whilst sat in the garden, or is that just me? It's a great opportunity to detox and clean out the junk you've been gobbling during the colder, comfort months. 

Get Rid Of Winter Hair

I can't wait to get rid of this red out of my hair. Don't get me wrong I love my hair red which is why I've had a love affair with it for 3 years, but it's time for a change. Summer is such a great time to change your hair and go for more natural, sun kissed hairstyles. It will make you feel so fresh and shiny, there's nothing more exciting than going for a drastic change with your hair.

Sit In The Beer Garden - ALL DAY!
This is kind of a tradition around my parts, to just chill out with your friends and have a nice meal and a few drinks with your favourite people in the beer garden. Beer Gardens are such a UK thing, and if you can't be on a tropical beach this Summer, the Beer Garden is a great substitute.

Road Trip
Everyone loves a road trip and summer is the perfect time to have one. Don't plan it, just go and see where the road takes you! Spontaneity is the essence of Summer, along with discovery and adventure. So buckle up and explore!

Drink Pimms as often as you can.
Pimms with a handful of fruit thrown in is ommmggg. I can't wait to literally live on it when Summer is here whilst laying in the garden all day. 

Lots & lots of BBQs
Weekend afternoons in Summer are alllll about BBQs and my fiance is obsessed with BBQing EVERYTHING in Summer. It's a great way to get all your family and friends together, just make sure whoever is cooking has had too many cocktails, I've been there it isn't pretty!

Buy a huge pool/hot tub and live in it.

In the UK, you might as well burn the £60 you spend on blow up pools because you just never get enough use out of it. I am a nightmare I buy a new one every year and I get really annoyed with myself by the end of Summer because I use it like THREE times, that's £20 a session! My goal for this year is to get as much use out of my pool as possible, they are worth the money if you use them, but I am debating buying a blow up hot tub instead. 

Make Smoothie Ice Lollys
Ice Lollys for breakfast, lunch and dinner whilst staying healthy and getting your 5 day, how can you even resist? You will find lots and lots of recipe ideas on Pinterest.

Go To The Beach As Much As Possible
One of my life goals is to live by the seaside, I used to live in Somerset right on the beach front and it was beautiful. It's SO refreshing and makes me feel positive. I love walks along the beach and ideally we'll move to Brighton in the not so distant future, because I just need to be by the beach at all times during the Summer months!
Buy A Polaroid Camera & Take LOTS Of Pictures Of Your Adventures!
Make memories and document them! Summer gives you the ability to spend more time outside and more time with your friends and family in the warmth of the sun, so make sure you take lots of pictures, so that you can look back and have great memories of Summer 2015.
