The Best Summer Pick-Me-Ups

*via

Summer is tons of fun, don't get me wrong. But sometimes it can be hard not to get too caught up in schedules, travel, and events. When life gets busy, it's nice to slow down and take a moment for yourself. Here are my favorite summer pick-me-ups!

1. // An ice-cold drink.   You don't have to be as obsessed with (maybe even addicted to?) iced coffee as I am to be able to enjoy a refreshing drink. Whether it's iced tea, lemonade, or even frozen hot chocolate (I definitely recommend trying this one if you haven't already!), stop by your local coffee shop and treat yourself. 

2. // A new lipstick.   Who doesn't love lipstick, am I right? If you're ever feeling bored with your makeup or outfit, a new lipstick can do wonders to change your whole look. You don't have to spend much, just a few dollars at the drugstore, to switch things up and refresh your makeup.



3. // Try a face mask.   Nothing feels better than a cooling face mask in the summer. Whether you make your own or buy them, face masks are such a great way to pamper yourself from home without having to spend a lot. Especially when my skin is out in the sun all day, it can really use the tlc!

4. // Make your favorite recipe.   Whether it's chocolate chip pancakes or a fruit salad, making and enjoying your favorite recipe for no reason at all is a simple way to get an instant pick-me-up.  Bonus points if you share your creations too!

5. // Go somewhere on your bucket list.   I know that personally, there's lots of places around where I live that I want to go this summer. Taking the time to actually visit somewhere that you've always wanted to go not only makes you happy, but also lets you make memories and have new experiences! It doesn't have to be far, either - a local trip to a new art exhibit, a hiking trail, or a park can all be fun, inexpensive ways to see something new. 

I hope your summers are going well so far!
