Summer is awesome and I enjoy the basics. What about you? FUN and FASHION…well, shopping. Check out Ally’s post on fashion.
Boating: The hot summer sun will fade, but the memories will last forever. I absolutely have a blast on the mighty Ohio, and let me tell you why! Nothing is better then a day full of exciting water sports, like tubing, skiing, wake boarding, and knee boarding. My personal fav is water tubing. The thrill excitement of coming off the water and not knowing if I am gonna be able to stay on for the ride, or if I’m destined to belly flop into the water, makes it all the more fun. My family has been boating for tons of years. They tell me I had my first boat ride when I was 6 months old. Wow, then I must be a true water baby at heart. Enjoy as much fun in the sun with your family as you can, because it is truly a blast!
Shopping: Alright, I can actually admit I enjoy shopping! You know that line, “shop until you drop.” well that’s me! I love to keep up with fashion and maintain all the newest trends. Shopping just comes natural with me! Shopping is not all about the buying, it is also about spending quality time with all my best friends… not to mention all the good food that comes along with a shopping spree! My girlfriends and I, literally laugh until we cry, we have such a good time, that we never want the day to end.
Words of encouragement: Love your friends, family, & God with your entire being, they are the most important part of your life.

Have you ever needed inspiration for creating an outfit from your existing wardrobe, or have you ever wanted to blog about fashion yourself? Then, Lookbook is the perfect site for you. I love http://lookbook.nu/ online because you can look through pictures of real people (approved by the website) and learn from their chic style. Lookbook also offers links for you to buy the pieces of the outfit you like. And here’s the really great part—most of the places you will buy the clothes are small online companies so the things you buy will be very unique, not too expensive, and not many people will have them.
Here’s another cool thing: the bloggers on the site are from all around the world so you can get a sneak peek of the fashion scene in France, Australia, Germany and more. Of course, just like any site on the web, you have to overlook some stuff. If it’s a trashy outfit that shows too much skin, don’t try and mimic it. But, be inspired by the diverse fashionistas on this site and learn new ways to wear the clothing you already have in your closet. Plus, after viewing some really cute outfits online, you might be inspired to buy a few key pieces on your next back-to-school shopping trip—pieces that will bring your closet to life this fall. We’ll cover some basics you’ll want for this season in my next entry. Happy shopping!
