Make the most of summer


A lot of people are breaking up for summer and finishing all their exams. As I have mentioned before, I always seem to waste my summer and then get so disappointed and annoyed when I don't do anything. This summer, hopefully I am going to not do that and I decided to share with you what I am going to do to help me not waste my summer. 

Create a summer bucketlist
I have already done a post on this here so I will keep this short. The idea is to write down everything you want to do and stick it somewhere obvious. This way, when you are bored, you can look at that and get ideas. I also think it would be cool if you wrote everyone on slips on paper and out them in a jar so you could pull them out. 

Start a project
This could be starting a blog or youtube or just anything really. For me, I am planning on making a summer photo album. If it starts looking empty, this could also inspire me to do something off my bucketlist! At the end of the summer, you will have something that shows what you have been doing. 

Plan loads of things
If you just wait for things to come along, you will most likely spend all your summer in your bedroom. If you plan a lot to do, you will make loads of memories and haev new experinces, The only way things are going to happen is if you make them happen!! Make sure you find the balance between relaxing and exciting though because doing lots of activites might make you stressed. 

Look after yourself
Pamper yourself! You have 2 months all to yourself so make the most of it! Also be careful in the heat and wear suncream and sunglasses. If you buy some pretty sunglasses this one should be easy. 

Hope this was helpful and that you enjoyed!! 

Lots of Love
