Travel. One word can mean a thousand things and a million places. Travel expands your knowledge while opening your eyes to a world you never knew existed. Do not be afraid of the unknown, but yet inviting to the language barriers and radical cultures. It is a gift to wander. Not everyone may find joy in one bag packed with items to last you through a month, or old plane tickets crumpled up between spaces in your wallet, but I do. It gives chills to an escapist and hope to the lost. 
Get up. Go.

Summer to me means something completely different than it does to you. Summer is my life, obviously. My definition of Summer: Hair gets lighter, skin gets tanner, nights get longer, water gets warmer, people are happier, bonfires get brighter, sunsets last forever. Summer is not just a season; it is a lifestyle. Packing those sweaters away under your bed in exchange for bikinis is exhilarating. Knowing your ghostly stomach will finally see the sun.  Roasted marshmallows, bright nail polish, and friends you’ve been counting down the days to see. It’s amazing how long we wait for that first day of summer to arrive just to watch it flash before our eyes. Imagine going a year without summer? No break, no scorching sun, no relaxing? It’s that perfect break in the year. Don’t let your summer memories fade away. Welcome Fall with open arms; just know summer saved your life.

Bikini too tiny?

Suns out - Buns out. I guess the new trend is practically wearing thongs to the beach to get that perfect non-existent tan line. That’s great and all, especially when you have a nice behind… but spare everyone’s eyes. The beach isn’t some nudist exhibition. It’s a safe haven, a place to relax, exercise, read; a place for families and fun. Wear something that leaves you with a nice tan line, not a line of boys drooling and moms blushing. Keep it classy, cover up that tushy. And don’t forget…soak up that sun, rinse of that sand, and feel the energy and relaxation after your escape. Let the salt linger on your skin and the sun illuminate from your face.
