Summer Faves We’ll Miss

School has already started for many and others are gearing up for a final summer getaway this Labor Day weekend.

We already gave you a few Labor Day ideas for fun. But now we wanted to reflect on a few things we’ll miss from summer and a few things we’re looking forward to for the fall.

summer we'll miss

Of course we’ll miss hanging out at the beach with the girls and the leisure of wearing sandals with just about every outfit we own. The London Olympics were exciting to watch and motivational at times – the toned bodies on our greatest athletes!Bright colors are always a summer staple and those long maxi dresses were a cool option for the high temperatures. And who can forget the phenomenon 50 Shades of Grey brought to the female population! Some have yet to explore this naughty novel while others are anxiously waiting for its big-screen debut.

But that doesn’t mean exciting things aren’t in the works this fall season. Twilight fans will line up for part deux of Breaking Dawn and we get to cozy up in our favorite sweaters and boots. A bold lip is officially this season’s beauty trend. And please don’t forget to stock up on your hot chocolate!

Labor Day Fun: Chic Travel Ideas

Labor Day Weekend – our final attempt at doing something memorable before we head back into work and start to cozy up for the fall season. According to Wikipidia, Labor Day is the last weekend of summer and it is also a tribute to all you hard workers. According to us, Labor Day is a day off work and a weekend filled with events, outdoor activities, family get-togethers or mini getaways, like the ones below:

CAMPING

We might not enjoy the summer heat and drenching temperatures, but when you want to enjoy nature, nothing beats a hot, summer day to fully enjoy the outdoor scenery.

PARADES & FESTIVALS

Every city usually has a Labor Day weekend festival going on, but if you’re city is not hosting any such event, search for nearby locations that you are more than welcome to partake of.

THEME PARKS

They usually do all the work for you; all you have to do is just stand in line and enjoy the ride.

DAY TRIPS

So maybe you can’t get away for an entire weekend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cruise on over to another nearby neighborhood or city and explore local hotspots.

THE BEACH

This is every one’s haven when it comes to a long, summer weekend.

No matter where your destination, don’t forget to pick up a mini kittouOvernight – our 2-in-1 travel bag fit for any fashionista!

How to Stay Cool in the Heat

 mini kittour®is located in Orange County, California. And for those of you that are not in this area, it has been a scorcher! Just this past weekend, temperatures went up to as high as 100 degrees. So call us spoiled but we are not used to this kind of weather. How do you stay cool in this smothering heat wave, whether you are home or while traveling? We did make our way to some sort of H2O oasis but in case you can’t be near the pool, a river or the beach because somebody has to answer those work emails, we found a few cool tips to stay…cool.

  • Besides feeling uncomfortable and moody, the hot weather can make you sick, sometimes causing heat cramps or a heat stroke. It’s important to stay hydrated and drink a lot of water. For best results, keep water bottles in the freezer so you have a refreshing drink to quench you down throughout the day as the ice melts.

 

  • Did you know that cold lotions or toners can be used for a soothing cool-down? Store your lotion bottle or cosmetic toner in the fridge and then slather some on your feet after a long day out in the sun. 

 

  • Jump in the shower for a cold shower! This will instantly awaken your senses and leave you feeling fresh and clean.

 

  • Remember to wear comfortable clothes, preferably of cotton material that is a light color.

 

  • Eat watermelon. Seriously! Packed with so much water, this fruit makes cooling down such a satisfying activity. Add some to your salad, eat alone or make a drink out of it – no matter how you eat it, watermelon saves you from the heat and supplies your body with Vitamins A and C.
