Get Summer Ready, Canada! We only have a scarce 4 months to enjoy the summer weather, so make sure to make the most out of it. Here are 5 ways to get Summered-Up!
Tip 1: Stock Up On Your Summer Sips!
What is summer without taking some time to relax by the pool with a refreshing glass of wine? Get yo’ booty to the LCBO and make yourself an ice cold drink. We love using Two Oceans wine to make ‘adult’ lemonade, sangria, and Two Oceans Collins!
Two Oceans wines hail from the southern Cape of South Africa where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. The summer heat and fresh ocean air gently ripens and sweetens the grapes on the vine, producing wine the is fresh, delicious and full of life. Two Oceans is widely available across Canada and offers 5 varietals at the LCBO: Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot in 750mL and 1.5L, starting at $10. With that price – I think I’ll grab more than a few!
Tip 2: Suit Up!
No, not a suit – a swim suit! Take advantage of the sun and tan in your own backyard! We absolutely love this velvet bather from Prive Boutique that comes in green, orange, burgundy and yellow. We’ve even seen Kourtney Kardashian rocking a velvet bikini this summer – so don’t miss out on the trend! Better yet, they’re based in Toronto and all prices are in Canadian dollars!
Tip 3: Take Care Of Your Skin!
With the sunny weather, a lot of us neglect to take care of our skin and don’t treat it properly. It is very easy to forget to put on sunscreen or use proper products. In the winter you have a set routine – moisturizers, balms, lotions, but in the summer it seems as though we forget all of this!

Tip 4: Make A Plan
There are SO many activities and events that go on during the summer. Research what is going on in your city and MAKE A PLAN in order to make the most out of the summer. You’ll regret seeing all of your friends at an awesome one-day event without you. Plus you’ll totally get a lot of awesome pictures out of it!
Tip 5: Get Reading
Summer is THE perfect time to read. You’ll always see people lounging by the pool or on the beach with the read of the summer. Pick a book you’ve always wanted to read, or choose something that you’ve never even heard of. Expand your mind and soak up some knowledge along with those rays.
