I am back from vacation! Thanks for all the have fun wishes. My family and I had a wonderful trip! We spent most of our time relaxing on the beach, taking dips in the ocean, cooling off in the pool and eating yummy food. I wish I were still there! Although it was quite hot, more so than usual. And it's even hotter back in Orlando now. I am trying to stay cool and here are some things that keep me from melting like a popsicle in the sun.
This is my favorite sunscreen: Banana Boat Ultra Defense. It goes on like a lotion and is less greasy than other kinds. It is also waterproof and has an extra defense in it to protect against the sun. The only problem was that it was so hot at the beach, it was sweating right off!
Smoothies are great for when it's too hot to eat a big meal. My favorite is the Leapin' Lizard at Planet Smoothie. It's made of peaches and strawberries. Yum! The name also reminds me of the musical Annie :)
A great pair of shades are also important to protect your eyes. Mine are Kate Spade (not the ones pictured) and I love them because they are polarized and the inside is pink!
A lightweight dress will keep you cool. I pretty much live in dresses in the summer because it's the only thing I feel like putting on.
Anyone else have some great beat the heat tips?
