10 Reasons Why It Needs to Be Summer Again

You walk outside to grab the mail. BOOM you freeze your balls/tits off. Awesome, right?


I envy everyone who lives in an area where the temperature doesn't drop a degree below 60. Seriously. Trade me spots. Asking for a friend here. 

Not only do the extra layers of clothing take extra time to bundle yourself in, but they make you look frumpy & just uncomfortable.

Winter Layers

Expectation Vs Reality




 While my skin is dry and walking outside makes me want to run away, I can't help but dream about the better times. The warm fucking weather times. Brings out the inner mermaid in me.

If you're like me & live in an area where the Winter months are a drag, you can all agree with me as to why Summer is the best.

1. Tanning
I'm a very pale lady, and I crave sunlight. Laying out in your bathing suit (or birthday suit) is just relaxing AF. Who doesn't love that bronze glow?


2. Driving with the windows down
A nice cruise in mid-July is fucking fantastic. Roll down those windows and feel the warmth and nice breeze. Ahhhh. If you drive a jeep, make sure you put your hair up!


3. More activities
No matter what you're into, warmer weather leaves a bigger window of things you can be doing. Swimming, hiking, fishing, or just sitting outside & finally not being a hermit after that long Winter.


4. Statistics
Studies have found that depression & anxiety seem to peak in the colder months, since there is little to do and no sun to make ya feel a little happy.


5. Sunglasses
Um. Everyone looks fly in their shades.


6. Fashion
I don't know about you, but I'd prefer sandals & tank tops over sweaters & boots any day.


7. Booze
Yes, I know. Booze are good in the sun & snow. Isn't it nice to take your beer outside and cookout? Or take a few shots and hop in the lake? BUT, have you seen these liquor popsicles?!



8. Expenses
So much cheaper since you don't have the heat blasting throughout your home. Who doesn't want to save a buck? Now you can buy booze for those popsicles. ;)


9. No School
I don't think I even need to explain the greatness of not having to get up at 6 AM to get the kiddies (or yourself) ready for school. Are you on board with me on the Summer boat yet?


10.  Camp Fires
In the warmer months, the sun seems to never go down. Unwind in the evenings/night time and build a little fire, surround yourself with a group of kick ass people, & enjoy.


I could probably throw you 100,000 reasons as to why I'd rather it be Summer year-round, everywhere. I guess I gotta remind myself that it's well on its way. I'm stocking up on bikinis, shades, and booze right now, as we speak. Are you ready? :)

The Greatest Valentines Day Pick-Up Lines

Valentine's is the cheesiest holiday in my opinion. Like shouldn't you love your significant other and show them that all the time?! 

Or for the single people, what the fuck are they supposed to do? Eat ice cream & wallow in their single sorrow? 
No, my friends. You're going to go out there and find the pretty/handsome, lady/fella and drop these sweet, sweet lines. 

Your success rate is guaranteed. 














And my personal favorite: 

These are killer, right? Enjoy V-Day! 
& remember, if these fail you, there is always a fallback plan.

I Tried The Claw Manicure

Okay so, if you know me, you know I try to keep my nails looking fresh all through the week. I don't go to a salon because I feel like I can do it myself and save the money. (I'm fucking savvy, you know?)

There's just something about having a pretty manicure that makes me feel warm & happy inside. It's like ooooh, girl, get it. 

I've been seeing a lot of new nail trends lately on social media outlets. I love that, because I can easily find new inspiration when I want something new. Not sure if anyone really follows celeb gossip anymore, but Kim Kardashian West is trying to sport a new mani "trend" and it makes me want to chop her hands off. 


OMG. She's piercing her nails with chains and hoops and shit. How do you grab anything? Can you even use your fingers/hands at all? I'm not a fan.

I did however, buy into the "claw" shaped nail trend. I've been seeing so many photos and thought I'd give them a go. They're just different and kinda grew on me. 

The super long ones freak me out, though. They looks like weapons and I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with giving myself that kind of power. 

  DANGEROUS

My nails are longer so I shaped and filed them like the ones below. 


The outcome? I really love them. 
At first, I made the points a bit too sharp and kept stabbing my face. So I filed them just a little to take off that super prominent point. 

I feel like my nails are saying, "Don't fuck with me." & I love that. Lol. 

Do you keep up with your manicure? Or nail trends? Tell me about them!

Kids Are Just Really Weird

Those fuckin' hooligans again. If you hear a loud noise, or even silence, you know that you're probably in trouble. Children will NEVER run out of weird things to keep them entertained. I promise. There is no break.


Not your traditional face painting. But hey kid, do you. I would probably die of laughter if I had to paint her face. Bwahaha.


 Not sure if they thought this was funny or she just wanted to keep him in line. Smart girl! Why aren't more of them catching on?


Who in the fuck would waste ice cream and put it up their nose? A child, that's who.


Odd. But I wish my pool guy would wear a Transformers mask too. Spice things up.


 
That stage in their life when they're trying to find their inner Britney Spears.


It's really sweet he's feeding his younger sibling. What's up with the mask? New identity? Of course.


Damn. That almost looks too comfortable. Weirdo.


Not sure if this one is weird or living everyone's dream. He made his shitter his home office AND dinner table.


Last but not least. To go along with their extremely odd behavior, they have a fashion sense to match. Whether they're rocking rain boots & a diaper or a pink poncho and a cowboy hat, they will definitely not be in the next issue of Vogue.

& those are just a few reasons why children are the absolute weirdest creatures to roam the Earth. I find its the most troublesome in their toddler years. But you know, I guess people go their whole lives being weird too.
