Okay, so I know August is just around the corner and soon these long, hot days of summer will draw to a close. But I'm holding on to these rays of sunshine - even though the temperature gauge reads 90+ (ewwwwwwww) - with a vengence this year. Holding. On. Seriously! We had a fairly easy winter (only 1 snow day - crazy!), and I'm fairly certain that means winter is going to come early and come hard once December rolls around. Even in 90+ degree heat, I'm not ready for snowboots or plowing or layering...
So, without further ado, here are three of my summer must-haves (and, yes, I'll be wearing them/carrying them around until the first snowflakes fall):
First, Nike Comfort Bed flip-flops. I love them because the bottom is similar to a tennis shoe (although much lighter) so you can actually walk and not worry about a sharp object impaling you if you step on it. Also, the color selection. This year mine are black and hot-pink. In years past I've chosen brown/peach, electric blue/yellow...depends on my mood. There is a pair at the mall now that is a white/coral/electric blue combo. I'm thinking about buying early for next summer!
Second, Jordan Essentials lotion bar. It's perfect for cracked/chapped heels and hands. I buy vanilla because I don't like heavy scents in the summer time. I rub the bar over my heels/hands whenever they feel a bit rough and - poof! - all better!
Third, a great scented candle. I picked up a couple of red velvet cake and jelly bean scented candles at Yankee Candle in April. They're all burned down practically to the bottom. Which is good, because I'll do a winter stock-up in a couple weeks. I burn candles year round, but in the summer the scents have to be light and airy. These were perfect!
Okay, your turn: what are a couple of your summer must-haves?
