Summer time is here and ready to stay. Summers in Arizona can be harsh,with the dry air the the constant beaming sun and lets not forget the 100+ degree weather. I've lived in Arizona my entire life so I'm use to preparing for the summer. I actually remember buying summer clothes and flip flops and pool supplies and being just super excited as a child when summer came around. Summer meant no school and swimming all day, but as an adult there's so many things you have to prepare for yourself. So here's a guide to surviving summer! Hope you enjoy



Everyday Tips

_________________________________________________________________________________


Overcast Days Are Still Hot
Sometime we think that because the clouds are over the city, that means you can walk around bare foot and just relax outside. Wrong! The heat in Arizona is so hot that even on a cloudy day you can still get blisters and burn your feet. If the sun was 115 one day and overcast the next, the ground is still hot so be careful.


Wear Breathable Clothing 
Cotton and breathable clothing can help with not overheating in the summer. Summer dresses and light linen cloths are comfortable and prefect for the summer. I've been in the dress mood lately and they are 


 Stainless Steel Water Bottle w/ Ice
Water is an essential part of living but definitely an essential part of the summer. Drink as much water as you can, your body will love you for it. I like using a stainless steel water bottle and adding ice t help it stay colder long and I can always add more water and the ice will still be there. So drink up!

 Baby Wipes
On those long days when your out and shopping, or at the park. Baby wipes help give your skin a refresh after you have been sweating all day. I don't like feeling sticky after I sweat so keeping a good bag of baby wipes keeps you clean and refreshed.



 A Fan (Big Or Small) 
Fans in a hot place like Arizona are much needed, whether they are a small desk fan or a large ceiling fan. They even have little phone fans that attached to your iphone, how cool is that! I can bring this little fan with me everywhere.

Protect those sweat stains with a Panty Liner
If your prone to sweat stains under your arm pits, opt for placing a panty liner in your arm pits with the cotton side facing your arm pit to soak up the sweat and they sticky side on your shirt. This will help eliminate those embarrassing sweat stains that always happen. Especially when you love and  wear gray.

Water Proof Mascara
No one likes running mascara or if your start sweating and wipe your face you mascara starts to smear. A good water proof mascara give you the pretty awake eyelashes you want without the running black makeup


Cold Rose Water Spray
I like to place all natural rose water in the fridge and use it on my face before I leave the house. Its refreshing and also good for your skin.You can use it in a spray bottle or just a regular face pad. I prefer using a small spray bottle.





Places To Visit
______________________________________________________

Hotels/ Resort Stays
Having a mini stay cation is always fun and super affordable here in the summer. You can find great deals on expedia or hotels.com if your looking to have a relaxing day at spa or just in a nice resort with room service. On the plus side most of them have pools



Sedona
The perfect place to go to get away from the big city and spend some time with nature and red rocks, how cool is that, red rocks. I've lived in Arizona my entire life and I'm always so amazed by it.


Canon Lake
Going on a lake trip is fun! You can go swimming, boating, jet skiing. The most important part is spending time with your family and eating.

Arizona Museum Of Natural History
Any museum is a great summer idea. It's both educational and it has A/C. Some much history to catch up on so get started.

Scottsdale Fashion Square
Just want a simple place to escape the heat, find a mall and explore the shops. Scottsdale Fashion Square has many different shops to explore while still staying cool and great eating too.

Your local coffee shop
I don't know about you but I'm so in love with coffee. Iced coffee in the summer is just perfect. If you like energy drinks dutch bros coffee has some amazing varieties of flavors
