Read full article | 4 Comments


Can you believe it’s already June 2nd? Where oh where did the time go? I’m not complaining however, because June means we’re closer to summer (only 19 days away as a matter of fact) which means lots of fun in the sun! Anyway, if you’re human, I know you could always use an extra smile to get you through the day. Here are 11 surefire things to get you grinning in no time. Go ahead, don’t hold ┬áback!

1. It’s the season of BBQs. That means you can eat that cheeseburger or extra rib (or two) without the guilt, that is as long as you go easy on dessert. Remember, being healthy is all about balance, and if you make good decisions 90% of the time, one extra ‘dog isn’t gonna kill you.

2. You can wear white and rock it proudly. White shorts. Long white summer dresses. White button down flow-y blouses. Deck yourself out in white. It’s a beautiful color on you!

3. Flowers, flowers everywhere. They are now in full bloom! Pick a big juicy purple one and put it in your hair…just don’t get caught!

4. Summer cocktails are everywhere now that the temps are cooperating. Oh, and bars are now opening their glorious roof decks to the public. Take a peak at some of these rooftop bars and decks around the Bean! Mohito on the rooftop anyone?

5. Now that it’s flip-flop season, you can finally show of those gorgeous toes. Just make sure they are freshly painted & filed nicely! I’m currently lovin’ the pale pinks like this color from Essie. Treat yourself to a pedicure or do-it-yourself! If it looks good, it doesn’t matter how much (or little) you paid for it.

6. The smell of fresh cut grass mixed with flowers. It really never gets old.

7. This song. You know you love it. Don’t lie. Press play.

What’s got you grinning ear to ear this month?
