30 Ways To Make The Most Of The Last 30 Days Of Summer

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s officially August. It is crunch time: time to make the most of what’s left of summer, people. Let’s stop messing around and let’s ensure that we really are having the best summer ever. Here are 30 ways to make the most of the next 30 days of this fabulous season.

  1. Make (and eat!) a fun, fresh summer salad stocked from the local greenmarket.
  2. Freeze a batch of boozy popsicles.
  3. Revitalize your parched strands with these moisturizing products.
  4. Try a new hot weather-appropriate hairstyle.
  5. Go through this checklist and make sure you’re lovin’ your body the way it deserves.
  6. Take a little beauty inspiration from these celebs and then head to a killer barbecue.
  7. Rock a white dress — before or after Labor Day!
  8. Find an open space or a roof top with a view and watch the sunset!
  9. And then do a little stargazing.
  10. Party at the drive-in or at an outdoor movie fest.
  11. Eat all the summer fruit you can get your hands on — nectarines, cherries, pluots, oh my!
  12. Hit up an amusement park or fair.
  13. Take a ride in a convertible. Zip car, anyone?
  14. Throw a picnic in the park for your friends.
  15. Take a day off and lounge poolside, for an entire day. If you don’t have a pool, many hotels will let you rent a spot by their pool.

  17. Cut a pair of baggy jeans into short-shorts and rock ‘em with some wedges, hot stuff.
  18. Put on a bathing suit and run in the sprinklers.
  19. Wear the same sundress all weekend long. (For the record, I do this almost every weekend.)
  20. Movie hop on a 90+ degree day and bask in the air conditioning.
  21. Eat a lobster roll or three.
  22. Have sex outdoors — here are 10 suggested spots.
  23. Instead of blasting the AC at night, open your windows and sleep naked.
  24. Shop the summer sales for items you can transition into fall and winter.
  25. Get your nail art on with a neon or beach scene manicure.
  26. Go tubing, dammit!
  27. Go braless, even for just a few hours. Sweet relief!
  28. Spend an hour just floating and swimming in the ocean.
  29. Read one book you’ve been dying to read every week. Here are some suggestions
  30. Attempt to do (almost) everything on this list twice!
