Hey loves! Today I'm going to give you some tips for making your summer easier, more stylish and glamorous. It's not that hard to look stunning, even when it's extremely hot out there. If you follow those easy tips, you'll be ready for everything!

The idea for this post came from the beautiful people from Madison Reed, a great hair color company. So, let's get started! A couple of months before summer, it's great to add a few minutes of  exercise to your routine. I personally prefer a 30 minute, but you can arange that according to your schedule. I found this app, the "7 Minute Workout" that is perfect because you enhance your metabolism and shape your body in such a short amount of time. Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water, is something that we hear all the time, but it's honestly the most important thing if you want to have a nice figure for your summer vacation.

Now, when it comes to hair. Oh my Buddha, I could talk for hours about hair. I was always a person that loved to change hairstyles, hair colors, everything! But now, I'm trying to keep it healthy, so I'm sticking to my natural hair color -black. If you have natural hair, I totally suggest to use chamomile to lighten your color. It's easy, probably the most healthy way to change your hair color and make it a little more summery! Just apply it to your hair for 30 minutes, and sit on your balcony or somewhere sunny. You'll end up with a beautiful sun kissed color, with no harm at all! But if you want more noticeable results, the best way to dye your hair without damaging, is by using a hair dye by Madison Reed. And if you don't know which color would look good on you, they have the solution! Just click here, and answer a few questions to find out the perfect hair color for you!

But what about the hairstyle? If you're a person that loves changes, then you should try a beautiful bob haircut. It's very fashionable right now, every blogger has it! However, I totally understand that some people can't get rid of their long hair (but still would love to try out something different). Well, just try a fake bob hairstyle! I'm doing my hair like that to lots of my outfits posts. It's easy, fast, great for the hot weather and most important, you don't cut your hair at all! Just follow what Andrea is doing at her "Fake bob hairstyle tutorial". It's adorable and so chic! Now, if you don't like it, then try this amazing tutorial for heatless curls. I'm doing this every single day and the curls are old-Hollywood level. When I'm dealing with a bad hair day, a sleak low hair bun is my go-to hairstyle. Quick tip: To avoid frizzy hair at the beach, simply mix in a spray bottle water and 3 spoons of conditioner. Spray it to your hair everytime you step out of the sea, but shake it well before you use it. Trust me, it's a life saviour.

When it comes to clothing, just go minimal. Layers are great, but you know what's not so great? Sweating! You don't need that black blazer with you, I know it looks perfect, but you don't need it girl! Keep it simple and light. Say goodbye to your skinny jeans, and say yes to a liner pair of pants. Synthetic is your worst enemy during summer, so take with you only breathable fabrics, and lots of dresses!

For manicure, my favourite color for summer is a pastel blue (or baby blue). I don't know why I love it so much, especially when you 're tanned it looks fabulous! And yes, I do match my manicure with my pedicure. To exfoliate my skin, I'm using a diy mixture of olive oil and sugar, it leaves my skin incredibly soft. My makeup tips during summer are right here, but as I said before, keep it minimal! Don't forget to have a powder with you, just to touch up during the day. And always, always, always wear sunscreen. That's it, you're now ready for summer! Let me know your tips and tricks loves.

    1. A great treatment for colored hair: Once a week apply to your hair olive oil, make a hair bun and sleep in it. Wash it very well in the morning, and your hair will be sooo soft! Thanks for visiting dear xx
