This summer you have most probably lost your partner to one sport activity or the other, whatever sport your other half is addicted to this season don’t let it stop you from having a sensational summer. While they are staying in glued to the box, take note of these five Summer Goals, some fun and fabulous things you can do alone or with friends. You may find your other half gets a little “grassy” green with envy.
1. Pamper party
Keep calm and have a pamper party! Whether you go solo, share with friends, share it with siblings or daughters, host it yourself, or bring in the experts; the sound of cheering and groaning from the TV room will become a distant sound, as you and your guests relax to the sounds of custom playlists whilst indulging in some in bubbly, healthy snacks and being cossetted with facials, manis and pedis.
Set the mood with pretty tableware and décor, and if you’re providing all the products make sure you get some bargains. From spa sets and face masks to nail polishes and pedicure bowls (we love a washing up bowl), the high street has everything you could need. Don’t forget your robe and slippers and tell your guests to bring their own!
2. Picnic paradise
Nothing quite beats a picnic in the park. Pick a gorgeous spot with a view, invite some friends, fill your cool bags with plenty of fizz and delicious treats and relax in your surroundings. With plenty of fabulous food offers in stores on picnic delicacies, you’ll be spoilt for choice, and whether you go disposable or invest in some picnicware, just remember to take plenty of picnic blankets to chill out on.
3. A day at the beach
Get your bikinis at the ready as the beach awaits you for a fun filled day of sand and sea. As long as you have plenty of SPF to wear and water to drink, some man-made shade, fluffy towels and flip flops to protect your feet from the burning sand, take advantage of this current heatwave and have yourself a holiday.
4. Festival fun
Heading out to a festival is one of the highlights of our summer – what’s not to love about live music, sunshine and friends? Pack wisely to ensure you have the best time, or if you’re creating your own festival in your back garden then don some denim shorts, cheap flip flops, a sequin top, stackable bracelets, a cute hat, a crossbody bag and a water bottle. Face gems and body glitter optional.
Take 90 minutes of alone time and you’ll be amazed at how good you feel afterwards. Read a summer blockbuster, paint a picture, go for a run, do some colouring or some meditation – whatever floats your boat for 90 minutes of peace and quiet and you’ll feel fabulous for the rest of the day.
