10 fabulous things to do this summer, a la Glamour Style

Life can be so hectic with work, deadlines, meetings, the house, the cleaning, the lawn, the dog, the kids, the husband, the in-laws… the list goes on and on!

And, sometimes, we forget to have fun and to laugh. We forget what makes us happy. This is why I have made this must-do list for you (and me!) this summer.

1. The first thing you must do is spend a whole day outside of the house in a beautiful and quiet place, far away from the chaos. Breathe in the fresh air, listen to the birds, enjoy the silence, and try not to think of anything but yourself.

2. Put on a pair of espadrilles and take a walk in the market. Enjoy the scenery! And buy something just for you: something that makes you happy.

3. Get your high heels on! Go out with your girlfriends for a coffee on a terrace, or for a more “adult” drink.

4. Summer hat on head, beach bag in hand…and get to the beach. This is a good way to unwind with a book. It reminds me of when I was a kid!

5. Plan a girls’ weekend spa getaway. Oh my, this can be fun and relaxing at the same time! Don’t forget your flip flop sandals.

6. Have a Glamour Sunday picnic. On the Saturday, prepare some fruits, cheese, crackers, orange juice/champagne and flutes (for mimosas); put them all in a basket, and take out a large blanket. Don’t forget the paper towel and small plastic plates too! The next day, put on your nice Sunday dress, your favourite jewelry, and a gorgeous pair of shoes. Find the perfect quiet, elegant place for your picnic…and enjoy, either by yourself or with people you love.

7. Celebrate good times! Get the girls together, put on your dancing shoes, and go out dancing! This is a great stress reliever.

8. If you can find one near you (or on one of your family summer trips), go see a movie at the drive-in! Kids love it; when I was a kid, we would go with our parents on summer holiday. I loved it then, and I still love it. You can even bring blankets if you want to sit outside; or, to keep warm, wrap a scarf around you shoulders.

9. Go see a play—or better yet, go to the opera (this one is on my bucket list). This one you really have to plan in advance! On the night of the show, put on your best outfit, Carrano shoes and your Swarovski crystal jewelry—and shine. Enjoy the show!

10. Another girls’ night out! Put on your best-looking pair of shoes, rent a limo for a night, go to a great restaurant, and then take a tour of the town while enjoying champagne.
