Apparently I need to learn how to run faster because Miss Chelsea has struck again! This TAG isn’t really book related, but it is about summer and I love doing these posts, so here we go!
This is the part where you guys learn how much I suck at being a girl. I don’t have an answer for this because I don’t use bronzer. Or very much makeup at all for that matter. It’s not for a lack of interest, really, but more from a pathetic lack of skill. I’m just no good at it and I haven’t found anyone with the time and patience to teach me the art of putting on my face. Anyone want to volunteer?
I love sweet tea! I probably go through a gallon of iced sweet tea every few days, if not sooner. I like to brew my own using Lipton tea bags and adding sugar. I usually leave the pitcher un-sweet and just add sugar to each individual glass because my husband prefers to use Sweet ‘n Low in his tea, and that’s just gross.
Burt’s Bees is by far my favorite lip balm ever! My friend Kristen introduced me to it over the winter because I had chronically chapped lips and I’ve been using it ever since. I love that one application will keep my lips moist for hours and that I’m not having to reapply it every ten minutes. My favorite is the one made with Mango Butter.
A pool, fo sho. Once upon a time I probably would have said both. But ever since that one time I got stung by a jelly fish, I refuse to swim in anything that I can’t see the bottom of.
Oh boy. So, do you remember how I said that I was pretty bad with makeup? Yeah, well, I’m even worse with hair. Mine is really oily, so I have to wash it every day. Especially in the summer when it’s hot and there’s, you know, sweating. I don’t really go for any one brand in particular, but I try to use something that’s moisturizing and/or has some kind repairing properties. I told you, I suck at this.
Both. I’m fortunate to have skin that tans very well. But because I don’t get a chance to soak up the Vitamin D very often (due to my job keeping me indoors during sunlight hours), I like to start out fake baking to build a decent base before I fully commit to worshiping the sun. Of course, I do it safely using some sunblock and not tanning until my skin looks like leather. I just like to avoid having a farmers tan is all ;)
Hot pink, all day long!!! It’s bright and it’s fun and I love it! I don’t always have it on my fingernails, but it’s a pretty permanent fixture on my toes as long as it’s flip-flop season!
Bath & Bodyworks has a slew of great scents for summer, but my all time favorite is Cucumber Melon. It’s so light and refreshing and just plain yummy.
Everything. Seriously. If you can cook it on a grill I’ll eat it. I love a good steak, but I equally love veggies, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, seafood, you name it. Luckily for me, the husband is a master grill sergeant.
If I’m looking to avoid the rays, I love me a big ol’ floppy hat. Also, you’ll never see me leave my house without my shades.

I love a good contemporary read in the summer. One of my favorite contemporary series is the Between the Lines series by Tammara Webber. It’s fun because it’s like a behind the scenes look at what it’s like to be a celebrity. The fame, the fortune, the drama. I love it! I’ve read all but the last book because Brooke is a manipulative cow and I’m not ready to sympathize with her yet. I’m sure I’ll get to it someday, but until then I totally recommend the first three books for pool-side reading :D
I TAG anyone who wants to do their own post!
