  21. I stay cool during the summer by cutting off my hair, using facial spritzers, like Fix+. I live in Central Florida so I am up against a real heat/humidity challenge. It was 84 degrees at 530am and it is 97 degrees at 430pm – with a heat index of 110 degrees and an extreme heat advisory scrolling across the tv channels, just like when there are hurricanes. This would be a great gift for my bday – July 9 – and my cat that I’ve had for 13 years died on Wednesday. So now I’m really down in the dumps.

    So, in the summer I like to get up early, open all windows and the door to let in the fresh, cool air and turn on every fan (7) in the apartment. When the sun comes to the front of the apartment, I then close the door and blinds. All the while enjoying a fresh glass of homemade lemonade or a slushy original margarita after the sun goes down.

    My favorite way to cool off in the summer is to drink lots of water and limit my outdoor activity during the hottest time of the day. I also go to lots of places with air conditioning, like the aquarium or the art museum, so I get a dose of culture while I stay cool.

  89. sprut

    I stay cool by staying inside! 😉 Between work and school, even in the summer it’s hard to find time to play. I’m not a beach bunny anyway.

    This stash looks amazing! I really like Rimmel cosmetics. I think they are one of the best drugstore brands around. Sexy curves and glam eyes are two of my fav mascaras at the moment. I also like the formula of their foundation, they just don’t make a color light enough for me. :(
