Pineapple Mango Lemonade- What to Drink in August

Pineapple Mango Lemonade


Seen on:Pinterest      by, cookingclassy.com

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! 
Would you like to know how to make it?

Summer Drinks That You Should Avoid

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.”

  

#3 Coolatas

“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!”

  

#5 Margaritas 

“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.”

  

#6 Slurpee

“Dreaming of a trip to the slushie machine at your local 7-Eleven? Think twice. A large coke-flavored Slurpee has 570 calories.”

  

#7 Frappuccino’s

“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.”

Bye, Bye, bikini!

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!

5 Signs Summer Is Over

I know, you never wanted or expected it to happen, but let’s just face it: all good things must come to an end. Your free time is increasingly becoming more free. If you’re experiencing any of the following, it might be time to pack up the bikini and the towel for the season. In the words of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, “you’ve maximized your tan.”

1. All your friends have already left for or returned to college. If you find yourself suddenly alone and without a friend to grab Starbucks with, chances are that they are already lugging their textbook stuffed backpack around their college campus and dragging themselves through the gnarliest welcome week hangover of all time. You may already find yourself resenting them and their drunken collegiate escapades while you’re wasting away in your house or apartment watching (hopefully good) syndicated television.

2. You begin to…

Is Wearing Summer Business Casual Damaging Your Image?

Presenting Yourself

IMG_2970.JPG
“It’s hard to believe that we’re half way through summer! As consultants who work in different corporations or agencies almost every day and we’ve noticed that many people have taken business casual to the extreme in the way they dress for work. What you wear can send out mixed messages.”

“Cover the Cleavage:

We’ve been lucky so far on the East Coast, but the Southwest has been experiencing stifling heat waves this summer. This brings challenges about what to wear. Sure it’s a scorcher out there but that doesn’t mean women can wear tight, low-cut T-shirts that reveal too much. No matter the temperature, short shorts have no place at work – ever! No one will be taken seriously dressing in shorts or tank tops in a corporate environment.”
