Visit, Indulge and love this summer

Perfect your summer whether you are jetting off or not ...

Parties
The most perfect way to celebrate a British Summer is in true British style. Sophisticated garden parties or champagne gatherings are not only classy but sophisticated and chic. With Pimms pouring and cute outfits dazzling you’ll be sure to enjoy a flawless afternoon. Partying does not always have to include clubbing!

Perfect Homemade  Lemonade
·         Prep time: 10 minutes
INGREDIENTS
·         1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
·         1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
·         1 cup lemon juice
·         3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
METHOD
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough
for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
Yield: Serves 6.


Shop
Shopping? Most girls favourite past time. Whether your preparing for your holidays or the numerous occasions ahead indulge in shopping for the day. Go somewhere you would not usually go. The cute boutiques of York or perhaps designer outlets, shop til you drop. 

Places to try:
McArthur Glen Designer outlet, York
Liverpool One, Liverpool
Bluewater, Kent
The most obvious is Oxford or Regent St London. If you are lucky enough to live in London why not try Paris? You can make it there and back within the day leaving from St. Pancreas or if you live further afield stay the night? Make the most of it.

Read
I love reading whilst on holiday. Of course in Ibiza I was always on the go so I refrained from my reading purchases until my next holiday.
Relax and read, here are are my three main summer reads for 2013:


Revenge wears Prada: The Devil Returns, Lauren Weisberger-  The Sequel to The Devil Wears Prada (I know you’ve all seen the movie!)

Entwined with you, Sylvia Day- The third book in the series. If you were a 50 Shades of Grey lover like me last year this book is perfect for you. It’s not all about sex and seduction (although that plays a big part) it also includes mystery and romance. Make sure you read Bared to You and    Reflected in you first!

Looking for Alaska,  John Green-  Romance need I say more



Travel, Road Trip
TRAVEL! This is what summer is all about. I am personally interested in history and love the thought of visiting castles and historical towns. Having said this I love to travel so I am open to anything. Be spontaneous this summer. Visit the Zoo or a theme park or somewhere you would never have thought to have go. This is perfect for those who are not jetting off this summer.

Here are places I wish to travel to:
Nottingham Castle
Stirling Castle, Scotland
Thorpe Park, Surrey
Cornwall
Ireland- a country I’ve always wanted to go to!

Sports
Detox with Yoga or be adventurous and parasail over the sea. Seek to be a daredevil the summer. I love the excitement and thrill you get from adventure and water sports. Surfing is definitely not my type of thing (although I would try) but anything that is fast or high I am all in! 

Camping
So we aren’t talking mud, rain and the middle of nowhere! Sleep on the beach or hidden in the woods you will never understand how much fun it is until you have tried it!







Party
Dance the night away in your favourite clubs. Try something new, go somewhere different, drink cocktails rather than vodka and meet new people.


Darlings visit, indulge and love ...
