1. Pack a picnic
You can’t beat a good old-fashioned picnic with homemade treats and all your picky favourites. We’re especially loving this trend of Bridgerton inspired picnics; because if you can’t put on a pretty dress and frolic in the park with a glass of champagne in the Summer, when can you? This list is a great round-up of the best picnic spots across the UK! But you don’t have to venture far to have fun - head to your nearest beach or local park, and if that still feels too far afield (the heat has got us feeling like that too), you can always lay that picnic blanket out in your own back garden. Personally we love a little privacy when we’re practising our lady-like twirling anyway.
2. Tourist in your town
If it’s been a while since you popped into your local town to wander aimlessly around, then the summer is the perfect time to soak up everything you forgot it had to offer. Visit that local museum you always walk past, grab a long overdue lunch in your favourite cafe. Or just take your time to grab an emotional support iced coffee and leisurely stroll around the bookstores and homeware treasure troves, with no end destination in mind. Sound dreamy? That’s because it is! We’re popping this one high up on our Summer bucket list!
3. Ice lolly 'o clock
Savour the taste of summer by making a batch of homemade ice lollies, and swamp your brain with nostalgia at the sight of those ice lolly moulds; what a throwback! Pack them full of fruit and goodness as a great swap for sugary shop-bought lollies (perfect for the kids).
And for when the Summer sun sets? Give your lollies a grown-up glow-up, by popping some fruity gin pops in the freezer (right at the back is probably safest!), we love these ones with raspberries, but our motto is ‘if you can freeze it, it’s ice lolly material.’
4. Garden glamping
Make the most of the balmy summer nights (minus the camping toilets and cold showers) by glamping in your back garden. Pull up a beanbag and enjoy a night under the stars with hot chocolate, marshmallows, and classic campfire tales. With this weather you probably don’t even need a tent! Just like Bear Grylls… but with slightly less mud and significantly more fruity cider.
