Just because the season of summer has passed it doesn’t mean you need to let it go. Summer can live on, both in your heart and in your home. It may not be warm enough outside for sunbathing, but it can be warm enough inside, at least once in awhile, for a home beach party or at least a day without a ton of extra layers.
If you want to keep connected to summer just a little bit longer, here are some tips that can help you keep summer in your home, and on your mind, all year long.
Try Some Tanning Lotions
One of the things that many people miss about the summer is that sun kissed look they get to their skin. Hopefully, you already know the dangers of spending too much time in the sun and even the possible dangers of using a tanning bed. There are other options when it comes to getting a tan look.
Spend some time researching the best sunless tanning lotions out there so that you can find something that is good for you skin and can still help you get a natural looking glow. You definitely don’t want something that looks like you’ve painted yourself orange.
Have An Indoor Beach Day
If you have children planning an indoor beach day can be a fun way to get them out of the winter blues. Obviously, you don’t want to bring a tub of sand in the house, but you could blow up a beach ball for bath time, let them wear their bathing suits (just turn the heat up a little), and even find some summertime crafts for them to work on.
If sand is a must for your summer remembrance, you could do some sand art with colored sand and neat little plastic containers. Pick ones with summer shapes to make it even more fun.
Watch Summer Movies
Spend some time watching summer movies. This can be something that you do on your own, it can be a romantic movie night, or it can even make a great family night, it just depends on which movies you pick.
A movie night brings everyone together you can laugh, cry, sing, and variety of other emotions are experienced as whole making it a magical occasion. Furthermore, there are so many ways to make the movie night even better especially if you have something like at&t tv for lots of TV and movie channels to give everyone a chance to pick out their favorite movie.
Have some popcorn with your movie, but pick drinks with a summer feel to them, like lemonade. If it’s an adult party have some Long Island Iced Teas. Not every party has to be about the kids!
Start Planning Next Year’s Vacation
Last, but not least, getting planning next year’s summer vacation. Spend some time online, and talking amongst yourself, to get an idea where everyone wants to go and what they want to do. Make pros and cons lists of everyone’s choices, based on research of cost and distance.
You could even get more into the spirit and start preparing for summer at home next year, by installing an air conditioning system from somewhere like Energy Pro Heating & Cooling, or even getting your DIY on and building a nice little summer house for the garden! This way, you’ll have everything you need and by the time summer comes back around all you’ll need to do is just put your feet up and relax.
You don’t have to let summer go just because it’s over. Just enjoy summer at home, in your mind, and before you know it summer will be back!
