Summertime Living

The summer season hasn't quite kicked off just yet, but with the heat index topping 100 degrees, it definitely feels like it! Summertime is my favorite season. There are things I love about each, but few things beat cookouts, late night dog walks, and days spent sitting in the sand. Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite tips, tricks, and inspiration I've found for summer.

summer entertaining: 
Summertime is one of the most fun times to entertain - loving these tips

hot hair
Beat the heat with some of these easy summer hair styles.

summer trends:
So many of these summer fashion looks from the EveryGirl I'm in love with - and I bought my beach bag yesterday so I'm ready to go on the woven bag!

trips for bucket list:
I love traveling, so my wanderlust list is constantly growing. Loving this list of places to travel- and who knew Russia had such beautiful beaches?!

I love snacking, and sometimes it's worse during the summer. Check out this Smart Girl's guide to keep you on track even during the summer. 

summer pizzas:
Perfect summer pizza recipes? Count me in!

love to run:
I have so many friends who de-stress with running or who choose running as their favorite cardio, but I just can't seem to get there! I definitely need to use these tips


  1. Totally loving LC's summertime hairstyles. I just wish I could do them myself haha! And those pizzas look amazing!

  6. I agree that snacking can get worse in the summertime, something about being out in the heat all day makes me hungry!

  7. With this heat it is summertime in my book! Loving the LC updos. I just posted a few tips to run in the summer heat if you want to check it out! I do have to say that the heat these days makes it very hard!

  8. Everything is better in the Summer. I needed those hair styles because my hair is one big hot frizzy mess!

  9. Yay for a new beach bag! And I definitely want to make every single one of those summer pizza's - YUM!

  13. This is such a great roundup! I enjoyed the article about smart snacking - with all the running that I've been doing lately, I'm finding myself hungrier than ever, and it's just too easy to reach for that box of Mike & Ike's instead of a piece of fruit. Ha!

  14. Wrapped ponytails are one of my go-to summer hair styles! They look so cute and make transitioning into gym mode so much easier! Great round up!

  15. These are great! I literally read every single one haha. My favorite has got to be the hot hair, though! With this mane and the humidity, it makes me about ten times hotter! Great post.
