Stay Cool with Ice-Cream and Coconut Water.

We are only a few days into summer and the midday sun reminds us that even though we love the heat, it’s necessary to stay cool. These are a few ways that I stay cool while I’m outside basking in the summer sun.

Bright colors just says summer. I've worn and loved this red and gold French Connection blouse.

Water is essential and I’m an avid drinker but I try to get at least one drink of coconut water daily. Coconut water naturally quenches your thirst and actually adds electrolytes that you lose when active. I like mine with the pulp (tiny bits of young coconut) inside of the drink. Put a fun, colorful straw in your container, bottle or can and you will feel like you’ve been transported to the isle of Jamaica. Coconut wata good fi yuh data!

This "Jamaican Choice" coconut water is slightly sweet. They've added a little sugar to make the taste more appealing to most.

What is the purpose of Summer if you can’t enjoy ice-cream? Ice-Cream is and always will be the ultimate Summertime treat. I like keeping my own container in the freezer along with some ice-cream cones. I do not need for the ice-cream truck to drive down my block for my ultimate treat. It’s conveniently located in my freezer. My most recent trip to StopandShop was fantastic because all of my treats were on sale. Friendly’s ice-cream (chocolate and vanilla) along with sugar cones (StopandShop brand) were under $5. My coconut water was $1.
