Guest Post: Sam from Simply Sam!

Ok, so! I decided that for the next month or two (depends), I'll be asking people to guest post on my blog.. simply because I have been in a posting slump. If you are interested, email me.

First up is one of my very favorite blog friends! If you haven't been to her blog, go, you will love it. She is sweet, beautiful, gives great advice.. you know what, just go befriend her and find out for yourself!


Hi guys! My name is Sam from Simply Sam and I'm guest blogging for Kellie today! She gave me free rein to blog about whatever I'd like so I decided I'm going to give you a little list I came up with of some must-do's this summer!

1. Go on a road trip. Whether you have the time (and money) to go far or maybe you just want to get an hour away, summer is a great time to hit the road, roll the windows down, turn the music up, and let the summer sun shine you on to your destination. Nothing says summer like a road trip.
2. Lose the foundation. For us girls who wear makeup, nothing can be worse than heavy foundation on a summer day. If you feel like you can't escape without at least some coverage, opt for a tinted moisturizer which will also aid as a sunscreen (most have at least SPF 15).

3. Wear that flowing, girly girl dress you have stored in your closet that you never wear. If you're anything like me, you buy dresses you think are so cute but then never know where you can wear them. Summer is the perfect time to move those dresses from the back of your closet to the front and finally get some use out of them!
4. Listen to some Bob Marley, Norah Jones and Jack Johnson. Seriously. Best summer music!

5. Take lots of walks. With friends, with family, alone. Do a little google research and search out parks near you. It's always fun to find new parks that you wouldn't have come across if you hadn't done a little research.

6. Go on a picnic. Heck, go on lots of picnics! If you work, ask your coworkers if they'd like to plan a picnic for your lunch break and find a bench outside. I recommend going as far as getting the wicker basket and plaid napkins :)
7. Try to knock off some of those books on your ever growing "to be read" list.

8. Go to the pool and don't just lay out.. jump in! Play those fun games you played as a child. You're never too old to play telephone underwater :)

9. Eat a lot of fruit! The season is here to indulge.

10. Go to a county fair or festival. Make sure to bring cash and leave the credit cards behind. Go crazy throwing darts, riding ferris wheels and winning stuffed animals. And don't forget the candy apples and cotton candy!
Thanks Kellie for letting me guest post!
I hope some of my summer tips give you all inspiration to have a great summer :)
