5 Things To Get You In The Mood For Summer

5 Things To Get You In The Mood For Summer

The time change just doesn't do it for me.


The sun is out, the skies are blue, and the beach is calling your name. Summer is just around the corner, but sometimes pulling out the flip flops just isn't satisfying enough. I know you're ready to pull your hair out as the teacher lectures, so while you wait on classes to end, here are five things you can do to get you in the summer mood.

1. Get (or give yourself) a pedicure.

There is nothing that makes sandals more enticing than giving your feet a little TLC! I don't know about you, but I tend to ignore those tiny little beauties when I don't see them all winter. My favorite at-home is letting them soak in hot water full of coconut and eucalyptus oil, then rubbing them down with a good pumice stone.

2. Invest in quality sunscreen.

We've all started taking green-living seriously, and one thing that is always chock full of nasty chemicals is sunscreen! Nobody wants to sacrifice their skin, whether to the sun's rays or to toxic skincare. Here, I've found a list of six brands that will take your sun-bathing to the next level.

3. Go shopping.

Let's face it, whether you're buying a new swimsuit or another flowery sundress, buying new clothes for summer always puts you in a good mood.

4. Hit up your local farmer's market.

I already love fruits, but summer always brings it to a different level! My apartment gets an overload of melons, berries, and greens, and my husband usually complains about a lack of Cheez-Its. As the days get longer, farmer's markets roll in the fresh produce, and you won't regret paying a little extra for the good stuff.

5. Get outside.

The short, bleak days of winter are gone, and that means that there are no more excuses for you to sit in your room watching Netflix all day. Go for a walk. Smell the flowers. Feel the sun on your face. Run around. Ride a bike. Get out of your sweats and out of the house, because summer is almost here!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
