Here’s the thing about gyms: we don’t get along. Throw me into a place with four walls, treadmills and grunting men in tank tops and I’ll be practically clawing at the windows to escape. Nope, I’d rather spend that monthly fee on gear that gets me outside, into the sunshine and onto the water. And you know what? Playing in the Great Outdoors is the best exercise you can get (I didn’t believe it until I took my marathon-running friend on a steep hike—she told me she’d never had such an intense cardio session and her buns burned for days!).

A Slice Of Life | No Budge Bikini: L*SPACE

Finding a bikini that actually stays on during outdoor activities is a challenge no matter what… but finding one that is also CUTE is even harder. Fortunately, L*SPACE has created what I like to call the perfect no-budge bikini. The three strap back top is the perfect combo of fashion and function, and its stylish design works perfectly as a bralette with an open back tank or dress. The itsy bottom, for those who dare to bare, is ideal for tanning, and stays on in even the roughest of surf! This suit can really do no wrong, especially because its flattering seamless style looks great on every girl. No bulges or bumps… and in any activity, no budge!

Salute to Summer: The Watermelon Paloma

Send off summer with a cocktail that combines two of our favorite things: watermelon and sea salt (oh yeah, and tequila). Don’t be fooled by the unicorn tear-pink hue, this cocktail isn’t for lightweights or sugar saturated drink-lovers. It packs a well disguised, perfectly balanced punch…that can, coincidentally, be served punch-style in the melon from whence it came. And because it contains zero added sugar, it’s a recipe that cocktail aficionados, beach bod conscious imbibers and casual Sunday sippers can enjoy equally.
Cheers to another perfect summer, watermelon in hand. Read on for the recipe…
