Sensational Summer Smells

Sniff the Top Smells of Summer

Sensational Summer Smells

Smell is a mighty powerful and important sense. As we go throughout the year, all of the smells are changing. For example, in the spring we may think of the smells for fresh flowers and rain; in the winter, it may be hot chocolate and Christmas trees. Below are some of the popular smells that one might sniff during the summer.

1. Fresh Cut Grass

The smell of fresh cut grass is so refreshing and clean.

2. Salty Sea Air

There is nothing like smelling that salty sea air at the beach. Once you smell it, you know you're in paradise.

3. Honeysuckle

Looks good, smells good and tastes good! These sweet honeysuckles are my favorite summer smell.

4. Camp Fire

The smoke smell from a campfire makes me think of roasting s'mores and hotdogs on a cool summer night.

5. Suntan Lotion

The variety of tropical scents in these lotions can take you right to the islands.

6. Magnolia

Yes, this southern magnolia flower is as pretty as it smells.

7. Chlorine

Spending time in the pool this summer can leave your skin extra dry, eyes extra red, and can cause you to smell like chlorine.

8. Peaches

The smell of peaches is so sweet and strong, it's like the fuzz is tickling your nose.

9. Bug Spray

Keep all those creepy crawly bugs away with this woodsy bug repelling spray.

10. Grillin' Foods

Throw some meat and veggies on that charcoal grill and take a whiff.

11. Fair Foods

Once you enter those fair gates, all the greasy fried foods hit you all at once. The corndogs, funnel cakes and deep-fried Oreos just lure us all in.

12. BBQ

You can never go wrong with the smell of smokey, sweet BBQ.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
