Late Summer Blend of Essential Oils
With Mixes made by: Young Living Essential Oils
“Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) has a warm, woodsy aroma that creates a comforting, uplifting experience. Use Cedarwood oil to add its invigorating scent to your life through aromatic and topical uses.”
“Ylang Ylang essential oil is perfect for diffusing to enjoy its romantic and relaxing sweet floral aroma.”
“Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm.

Pineapple Mango Lemonade

I have been searching through countless summer drinks, some with alcohol some without. When I saw the photo of this magnificent drink, I knew I had to blog about it! And it’s also perfect for August. Right as the summer is winding down, people want a refreshing summer drink to remind them of summer for just a little while longer.
I know when summer comes to an end every year, I think we all get the blues just a little bit. Soon we will be missing those long summer nights, when darkness begins at 5 PM. Since it is the end of August, September is a month that is truly made for fall. So this is the last couple of weeks that we can do some summer things, and feel good about it. Like the pineapple mango lemonade above, with darling orchids and umbrellas for decor, doesn’t it just say, “Drink Me”? It does for me!

Avoid These Caloric Drinks
#1 Delicious, Refreshing Summer Calories
“Nothing cools you down on a hot summer day like a cold summer drink. But most of us are making big calorie mistakes with these summer coolers.”
#2 Sno Cones
“These only look like the healthiest option that the ice cream man offers. These babies are 90% high-calorie syrup. A single snow cone can have as many as 300 calories.”
“Frappuccinos get a bad rap, but they’re not the only blended coffee offenders. The Coolattas at Dunkin Donuts have more calories than anything you’ll find at Starbucks.”
#4 Piña Coladas
“Coconut and pineapple taste great together, especially on a summer day. But this may be the most calorific alcoholic beverage of them all. On average, a beach-side pina colada has 644 calories!”
“A margarita is the ultimate summer drink. Unfortunately, each drink packs a ton of calories. Even if you stop at just one, you’ll ingest around 400 calories per 8oz. serving.”
“Dreaming of a trip to the slushie machine at your local 7-Eleven? Think twice. A large coke-flavored Slurpee has 570 calories.”
“Summer is the season of delicious iced summer drinks. We all love Starbucks’ Frappuccinos, but these babies pack a calorie punch that most of us can’t afford. A venti Caramel Frappuccino, for example, has a whopping 510 calories.”
I wanted to make one last summer fashion post with some hot, steamy gals who are sporting some amazing bikinis and cover-ups. I wish I could wear my bikini year-round, but I’m nuts! …not really. But I do love wearing nearly nothing, so bikinis are a “must have” in my wardrobe. Here are some hot photos of summer, just one last time. ENJOY!
