Summer Incoming!

10 things we can’t wait to enjoy this summer…

After probably theworst year of our lives, we’re all looking ahead and literally cannot wait for summer. Sunny days, holidays and summery vibes are on their way and WE ARE HERE FOR IT. Get pumped for summer with this feel-good list of everything we’ve got to look forward to…

SUMMER EVENINGS

Those long, warm evenings when the sun is starting to set and the sky burns orange and pink… bliss. Roll on summer nights and evenings spent chilling with friends. Longer, brighter days can have a positive effect on low mood, especially for those who suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

SUMMER SPLASHIN’

Paddling pools, streams, rivers, the beach – summer is made for dipping toes in ice cold water! There’s no better feeling than cooling off with a swim or a paddle while the sun beats down on your face.

ICE COLD DRINKS

Whether you’re sippin’ on a cold Coke in the garden or enjoying a Lemon Fanta in sunny Spain, there’s nothing better than an ice-cold drink on a hot, sunny day. They just taste 100% better when the sun is shining, right?!

WATER FIGHTS

Hands-down the best summer activity ever. And, no, you’re NEVER too old for a water fight!

HELLO, SUNSHINE!

Picture yourself lying in the sunshine, enjoying the warmth of the sun on your skin, and listening to the chatter of the birds around you. You’re relaxed, laid-backed and loving life. Not long to wait before this is reality, we promise…

PARK LIFE

Parks look kinda sad and miserable during the weather months, but summer is your local park’s time to shine! Soon it’ll be packed with people of all ages – sunbathers, people playing football and games, kids on bikes and picnics are on their way!

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!

NGL, we also enjoy ice cream during winter but it’s just not the same. To be fully appreciated, ice cream must be eaten in blazing sunshine while you try to lick the melting trail that’s making its way down your arm. Facts.

SUMMER TUNES

New beats, old beats, banging bass or dance hit – if it’s a summer bop, crank it up! Everyone has that one favourite tune for instant summer vibes. What’s yours?

FUN WITH FRIENDS & FAM

School holidays and longer evenings give us more time to spend with the people we love most in the world. Hands up if you’re looking forward to beach trips, BBQs, parties and just hanging with the best people in your life?

BBQ? YES, PLEASE!

All hail the BBQ! The first grill of the year truly symbolises the start of summer. There’s always w-a-y too much food, burnt burgers and that one fussy eater who will only eat potato salad, but we genuinely can’t wait for it.
