The 4th of July is almost here, which means a day of fun, fireworks, and lots of sun. While the barbecue is going and the heat is rising, you’re going to want to reach for something to cool you down.

No-Heat Summer Hairstyles

As the summer months quickly approach us so will the high humidity and bright sun. During the summer, I like to take this time to showcase heatless hairstyles. Three of my favorite hairstyles are the fish tail braid, the messy bun/top knot, and the goddess braid. All of these hairstyles can be done on any hair type or texture; some take a little practice if you are not used to braiding, but watching a few tutorials will alleviate that.

Summer is all about hitting rooftop soirees and lounging by the beach with friends. If you’re thinking what I am, you know you’ll need a pair of trusty sandals for day and night for all your summer adventures. I’m loving strappy flats for day and sexy strappy heels for night in a sassy snake print. Take a look and see how you can pair strappy sandals for a casual or formal occasion wherever the mood takes you.

Tequila

My younger sister recently became engaged and to celebrate she hosted an outdoor party with our family and her new in-laws. It was a perfectly warm day for an outdoor event and to top if off, her in-laws had the most delicious cocktails ready to go. After taking a big sip, I immediately asked her fiance what was in them and was pleasantly surprised to hear they used tequila since it’s not usually my libation of choice…especially on hot Summer days! I was amazed how the flavor was so refreshing and light that I couldn’t get enough. It was similar to a Paloma but with a fruity/spicy twist! In honor of National Tequila Month, I thought it would be fun to share this recipe with our readers so that you can recreate it for your gatherings this Summer. Enjoy!
