Fresh Fruit For Breakfast

The one thing which we all love to do in the summertime is start the day with a smoothie bowl or a bowl of fruit and yoghurt. It’s refreshing, light and makes you feel invigorated for the day ahead. Just because the season has changed doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy fresh produce which is available in stores. Make yourself a big bowl of fruit and enjoy the morning sun.

Woodland Walks in The Sunshine

Being outdoors is a surefire way to feel like you are making the most of your day. Why not plan an impromptu hike at the weekend, take in the sights beside a lake and relish the sunshine on your skin. It might not be the right weather for wearing shorts or a dress, but just wrap up in a few extra layers, and you’ll feel toasty and happy.

Jet Off Elsewhere

It might be the end of summer for us, but in the southern hemisphere, it is just beginning. If you really want to keep that summer spirit alive, book some cheap flights and jet off to a tropical beach somewhere. You’ll get to have one last wear of that bikini and make the most of cocktails by the pool.

Keep You Decor Light and Bright

At the first sign of foggy weather and a chill in the air, many of us switch out the bright cushions and pastel decor in aid of a room filled with tartan and scented candles. Keep summer alive in your home by ditching the thick blankets and furry pillows and sticking with that summer colour scheme. Light some fresh seaside and fruity scented candles and leave the spices for later in the year.

Brave The Beach

It might be a bit, okay very, windy outside, but that’s no reason not to take a trip to the coast. No matter the season, the beach clears the lungs and makes you forget about the world. It’s the ultimate relaxing sensation…Even if you have to keep pulling your hat back on.

The Great Outdoors

There’s nothing more indicative of summer than making s’mores over an open fire and sleeping under the stars. Camping is the ultimate way to relive those adventurous summer days and keep the spirit of the warmer months alive. Grab a tent, PLENTY of blankets and some simple supplies to make a weekend away which is reminiscent of that summer haze.
