Beat the Heat

Happy Canada Day!!!!!!   It is H.O.T. here on the West Coast!  We are almost a month into an incredible heat wave.  Of course none of us want to complain about such amazing weather and endless days of sunshine, but we are having to adapt a bit.  How I’ve been keeping cool….
1) Cool showers are divine, but as soon as you towel yourself dry, you’re warm again.  I’ve been using this fab new body lotion by Jergens.  You actually apply it when your skin is still wet.  I’ve been loving it!  Perfect after a shower or even after a swim.  Available at London Drugs.
2) Paper fans are a great thing to keep in your purse so you can make a breeze wherever you go.  I stocked up on a couple when I was pregnant and still use them.
3) I received the Bobble water bottle at an event recently.  I’ve been trying to stay as hydrated as possible, so it’s been the perfect thing to pack around everywhere.   I love that this water bottle is light weight and has a built in filter.
4) Any time you can be either in or around water is a good thing.  Yesterday, I purchased a couple of beautiful Turkish towels from Home Sense (similar to the ones above).  I first thought I’d put them in the bathroom buy I might as well have pretty towels at the pool.  {Even if it’s Maddie’s kiddie pool.}
5) Every girl needs a great straw hat that matches anything and everything in their Summer wardrobe.
6) Pin that hair up!  When it gets this hot, you’ll be seeing my hair up in a top knot more days then not.  I’ve got a big stash of hair ties and bobby pins on hand.
7) I have flip flops laying all over the house right now.  They are all I want to wear.
8 )  This Avene Thermal Spring Water spritz is perfect after time in the sun.  Keep one in your beach bag for fresh soothing after sun relief.  I’ve been using it for years.
Keep cool and enjoy that sunshine!

Our West Coast heat wave has been a big dose of Summer all at once…and I’m not complaining!   I’ve created a new uniform for myself, as I do, for these amazing hot days.   Flowy tanks, a black skort, and a striped skirt have been my breezy go-to’s.  I’ve been wearing a lot of  neutral coloured items that I can mix and match.  Simple jewelry and and a straw hat have been all I need to accessorize.  I feel like a fun, quirky bag would be a great way to add a little personality to these looks.  I’m in love with this ASOS pineapple bag.  Adorable and it may have t o be mine!   Most importantly, my fridge is stocked with bottles of sparkling water and some flavored water too.  Hydration is key so it might as well sparkle.
