Summer is a time for taking care of the one who gets you through the rest of the year--you! You can't neglect fabulous self. It's essential to do the things you love and take pleasure in the little things in life. And someone once said, "Life is short. Make each hair flip count."

1. Wear clothes that make you feel good about your body.

If you can't be happy in your own skin, it's going to be a long summer. Find something you love and rock it!

2. Leave all your worries behind.

Hakuna Matata: it means no worries the rest of your summer *daze*! Sip something cold and sweet and kick back in the summer sun.

3. Read a book full of scandal and silly antics.

Everyone always says they'll read more when they have free time, but summer can almost be crazier than any other season. Grab a fun book that feels every bit as guilty a pleasure as watching Gossip Girl.

4. Soak in a bathtub.

If you're not a bath person, maybe you're just using the wrong bubble bath. Relaxing in a warm bath is the comfort equivalent of a hug (according to Google). So give yourself some "me time" and toss a Lush bath bomb in, light a candle, and relax.

5. Keep your nails clean and pretty.

Water and outdoor adventures can be rough on your manicure. If you're not paying attention, it's easy to find your fingernails broken and ragged.

6. Deep condition your hair at least every other week.

Sea salt cures everything....except split ends. All the chlorine and salt is destructive to those shiny cuticles keeping your hair lush, so give it a little TLC. Leave in conditioners are miracle workers. Soak your hair and give it a generous amount of conditioner in the evening before you plop down in front of Netflix.

7. Indulge a little.

Everyone wants the perfect summer body, but summer food is pretty incredible too. It's all about the balance.

8. Dance to your new favorite summer song--this counts as cardio.

Even Dr. Yang gets grooving before she saves lives, and why should you be any different? Nothing gets you feeling good like letting go.

9. Get a fuzzy blanket to binge watch Netflix.

It's easy to feel like every day in the summer has to be snap chat worthy, but sometimes Netflix is really all you need, but it's easy to feel fabulous even at home. Put on your fave PJs, a mud mask, and curl up in a really soft blanket. After all beautiful requires beauty rest.

10. Have fun even when you're working.

Make friends at your job. You see these people day after day so make the most out of your time together. You'll be happy when those pay checks roll in.

11. Go out with your girlfriends.

Don't let summer separate you from those who love and know you the best.

12. Try something new with your make up when you're not going anywhere.

This is a perfect time to try that new Pinterest hack. And if you don't like it, no harm done.

13. Spend a day doing nothing.

There's nothing wrong with doing nothing now and then.

14. Unplug from deadlines.

Even better, turn off your outside connections to the world, and really truly relax.

15. Remind yourself that fabulous is a state of mind.

It doesn't matter what time of year it is, what your weight is or if your wearing scrubs or Jimmy Choos. Happy people can be happy anywhere doing anything, and fabulous people make the most out of everything because fabulous is a lifestyle.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.

In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
