How To Get Ready For The Summer
Reinvent Yourself & Your Home For The Warmer Days
Summer is finally just around the corner, giving you the best opportunity to reinvent yourself and your home. From your wardrobe to the garden, now is the time to prepare yourself for the warmer days ahead.
• Prepare Your Home
Most of you will be heading outdoors over the summer making the most of the glorious sun. However, there may be times when the heat gets too much for you, and you will be heading indoors to cool down.
For that reason, make sure your air conditioning is in good working order, giving you that cool air right when you need it. If it’s in need of repair, don’t delay and hire a professional to fix it.
Give your refrigerator a clean out, and get rid of anything you won’t be touching in the warmer months. You will want to make extra space for cold drinks – keeping you hydrated in the heat is one of the most important things to do in the summer! Remember to stock up on those tasty treats for you and your family, such as ice cream and frozen desserts in the freezer section.
• Spruce up Your Garden
If you are intending to spend your vacation time lounging in your garden, it needs to look as good as possible. Mow the lawn, remove the weeds, and powerwash your walkways. Purchase those summer essentials, such as a barbecue when you don’t want to cook indoors, and new outdoor lounge furniture to give you added comfort as you relax and enjoy the sun.
For those of you with kids, a garden is a great place for them to be over the summer, away from their games consoles and smartphones. Keep them entertained with water guns, slip ‘n’ slide mats, giant garden games such as Chess, Jenga or swingball sets.
Give your garden a fresh new look with water features such as hanging bird baths and sculptured waterfalls, and add plenty of color with plants and flowers. Not only will your garden look beautiful, but it will also smell fragrant, good for all your senses.
• Get into Fashion
The summer months are a great time to reinvent yourself and experiment with the latest fashion. It will give you the perfect excuse to clean out your wardrobe and restock it with bright new colors, giving you a fresh new look every day.
From sandals, swimwear and the latest branded items such as Alfred Dunner pants and tops, find something that you will look and feel good wearing.
• Some Summer Essentials
There are so many things to do in the summer – the list is almost endless. Some things are almost essential, so consider the following. Sunscreen is a must to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Fresh new bath towels are perfect after a cold shower or swimming in the pool. Romantic summer hats don’t just look great, they also protect your hair from sun damage.
An ice machine will complement all the cold drinks you will be stocking up on. For warm summer evenings, you could get a large picnic blanket for a romantic dinner outside. There are a lot more cool inexpensive things to make the most of the summertime.
Enjoy your summer!
… to get you in the mood 🙂
