Hi guys! It’s the first Wednesday of summer for me and you know what that means… the In Summer series is back!
Just like last year, I will publish a new In Summer post every Wednesday. This year will be different though because I won’t ditch it, and I’ll do my best to actually write it every week (I hope). Here’s to a great summer, and let’s get started!
To kickoff this year’s In Summer series, I thought I’d start with a tag post. I found the “Sun Kissed Summer tag” last year on YouTube and rediscovered it recently, so I thought that would be a perfect post to start with. Basically, it’s a tag of 15 questions, and then I’ll tag a few people to continue it. I hope you like it and that you’ll consider answering the questions too!
Question 1: When did you get out of school?
I finished school on June 5, and that was my last day of middle school! I’m off to high school next year!
Question 2: Beaches or Pools?
Definitely pools. They’re cleaner than beaches and I just hate sand everywhere. Last summer I only went in the ocean once because every time we went to the beach I just sat on my towel and read a book or took pictures.
Question 3: Are you going on any summer vacations? If not, what’s your dream summer vacation?
I am actually going on a summer vacation! On June 25 I fly to Copenhagen, Denmark and then my family & I are going on a Disney Cruise to Northern Europe from there. I’m so excited because I haven’t been to Europe before and I can’t wait to experience all of the different countries that we are going to. From Denmark we travel to Norway, Iceland, Scotland, & England.
Question 4: S’mores or Ice Cream?
I would have to pick s’mores because we don’t really make bonfires that often to make them, so when I have them it’s kind of a special thing (if that makes any sense). Ice cream I still love but I can have that any time, and nothing beats a s’more.
Question 5: What’s your most fun summer memory?
My most fun summer memory was when my family & I went on a road trip to Disney last summer. Additionally, every year on the last day of school, my sister & I each invite a few of our friends over for a “school’s out” party. It’s really fun every year to get together with our friends after school is over, so that’s probably one of my favorite summer memories too.
Question 6: Does your skin tan or burn?
My skin tans, it never burns. I’m really lucky that I don’t have to worry about getting sunburn.
Question 7: How do you wear your hair in the summer? (Down, ponytail, ombre, etc.)
Usually I just keep my hair in a ponytail or bun to keep my hair out of my face for walking around or swimming, but I just dyed my hair yesterday (picture to follow). It’s a balayage dye (which is what the stylist told me). Balayage translates to “sun kissed” in French, and the whole idea behind it is to make hair look sun kissed and naturally lighter, so it couldn’t get anymore self-explanatory.
Question 8: Favorite summer nail polish?
Essie’s “Serial Shopper” is the perfect orangey-pink shade for summer.
Question 9: Would you rather spend a day outside in the pool or inside watching Netflix?
I would rather be outside in the pool. We don’t have a pool at my house, but I love swimming and I love being outside when the weather is nice.
Question 10: Sunglasses or Hats?
Sunglasses. I haven’t tried hats yet, but I love the look of wide-brimmed hats, so I’ll have to experiment with that this summer.
Question 11: What is your song of the summer?
Let You Love Me by Louisa Wendorff
Question 12: Do you have a summer bucketlist? If so, share a few things on your list.
No, I don’t have an official thought-out summer bucket list. I have one goal that I want to accomplish this summer, though. I need to clean up my room and go through things I don’t need anymore – I want to get my room organized and keep it that way. I also want to get serious about blogging because I took it seriously last summer and I really liked the result of that so I really want to prove to myself that I can commit to this and stick with it.
Question 13: What kind of bathing suit do you like to wear in the summer?
I like to wear bikinis or midkinis.
Question 14: Must-have summer makeup product?
I use a facial moisturizer after I use a cleanser when I wash my face everyday because it helps to keep my skin soft. I hate having dry skin especially on my face so it’s important for me to always use my facial moisturizer. (Plus it has SPF 15, so that always helps.)
Question 15: What’s your favorite thing about summer?
My favorite thing about summer is time to travel. There’s more time to go away on vacations and I love traveling so it’s the perfect time for me. I also love time to relax and unwind from school, there’s no pressure or stress to get anything done and I really enjoy not being so busy.
That’s all for the tag, guys! I hope you liked it, and if you would like to answer the questions then please leave your answers in the comments below! I’d love to read your responses.
