🌞Summer Time Drinks and Treats🌞

There's nothing more refreshing than my favorite summer time snack: A sandwich with a glass of lemonade, chips and a cookie or maybe a popsicle. But to spicy things a bit (And also if you plan to have a small group of friends/family over) you should definitely take a peek at my suggestions to make your taste buds zing.

🌞Summer approved outfits🌞

The heat can be really hard to beat some times, but is recommended to wear comfy clothes for this season. Mostly bright and colorful to avoid being sunburned and also being noticed by friendly faces. Here's my suggestions on what you should considering to wear.

  • Swim Suits (if you plan to go swimming)
  • Water Shoes (if you plan to go swimming in the beach or lake)
  • Shorts or Skirts (gym shorts or jean shorts)
  • Spanx or Spats Shorts (To prevent chafing if you plan to walk somewhere)
  • Sun dresses
  • T-shirts
  • Tank tops or Muscle shirts
  • Flip Flops or Sandals
  • Sun glasses (with or with a sun hat)
  • Shawls or Wind Breakers
  • Sun screen, Sun tanning oil, or Bug spray (or all three)

🌞Creating the perfect summer atmosphere🌞

For those of you who don't like to go outside at all during the this season, why not bring the summer inside your home? Here's a few of my suggestions.

  • Central Air or Air conditioner (To stay cool)
  • Having any type of pool
  • Tiki torches
  • Beach or Ocean themed curtains, towels, table cloth, welcome mats and etc
  • Lawn chairs for outside
  • Umbrella for an outside table
  • Sandbox
  • Volley ball and net
  • Fake palm trees (for inside)
  • Cacti (for inside and or outside)

🌞Reading/Telling Spooky Campfire Stories🌞

One of my favorite things to pass the time on a summer night is sitting by a campfire with s'mores and telling scary stories. Of course there's always a good summer themed CreepyPasta you can give a try, here's a few I recommend looking into.

🌞Summer at challenges🌞

To my recent discovery there are art challenges even in the summer, The newest one that has been discovered is called "Mermay" created by the amazing animator Tom Bancroft. There are many art challenges that are waiting for you to discover but you can always use this time to practice for Inktober challenge!

I hope this helps you enjoy the summer season! Have a safe summer.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
