Having Fun In The Summer Sun

* I was compensated by the CHPA's Educational Foundation, KnowYourOTCs, but all opinions are my own

It's official! We are on summer vacation!! Whoo hoo! Well the kids are. I'm still working but with less ferocity as I have in previous months. Trying to really take time and enjoy the "lazy days" before they end. Summer is by far my favorite season. And not just because my birthday is at the beginning, I genuinely love being outdoors with the kids and enjoying the So Cal weather. However, I wouldn't say I'm outdoorsy. I just like being able to hang out in the back yard or take the kids swimming or to the beach and the weather be amazing. With those types of outdoor activities, on the horizon you better believe I check my stash of sunscreen to see what I've got on hand and what needs to be replenished. I've said it once and I'll say it again, no matter how much melanin you have in your skin you still need some kind of skin protection!

I'm adama…

Canned Wine In The Daytime

I partnered with West Side Wine Co. on this post but all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Listen, I love day drinking okay? I’ll go right ahead and say it. I do. I like drinking in the middle of the day, particularly, outdoors on the patio in the summer time. What I don’t like is lugging a bottle around to an event or having to stock up on one variety or another trying to guess what everyone will be into when hosting friends over for some afternoon entertaining. This whole canned wine phenomenon is brilliant for these occasion’s. Guests have the option to drink their choice of Chardonnay or Cabernet and be done with it. There's no need to waste a bottle by opening something you might not have been ready to open, simply because a few folks aren't feelin' the lighter wines. No worries. 

There is also something slightly nostalgic about sipping a little something during the day time with my homegirl crew. Takes me back to a time before busy schedules and kids and adulting.
