Summer Fun!!!!

So granted the Summer brings heat and humidity that can bog our skin care, make up, and even hair styling routines down with a boat load of issues from oil, frizz, shine, and sweat, but Summer time also launches fun products from brands we love, brings our abilities to best waterproof and lock down our long wear items for days we might want to look a bit made up by the pool or on the beach, and Summer also brings us great opportunities to get out, travel, and venture into a bunch of outdoor activities!

 

I want to know, Beauty Talk, what's your Summer fun?!?!

 

Do you hike and bike? Do you swim your heart out? You you travel nonstop? Do you just hit up your local Sephora for new product so much they know you by name Smiley Tongue? What exciting and fun things do you do or have you done so far?

 

Share pics, experiences, and stories!!! Smiley Happy I always love learning more and more about each of you!

 

This past weekend was my boyfriend's birthday and he decided he wanted to....JUMP OUT OF A PLANE!

 

Skydiving time! Yup! He got video and photos taken of his venture, but the crew did manage to snap a quick one of us smootching before we were going to jump out! I had such a blast, there's really nothing quite like it and for anyone considering it, GO FOR IT! It's 1000 times better than a roller coaster and once your parachute is open and you're just gliding it's so breathtaking and actually so relaxing! The first part (the jump out of the plane with the instructor) is super surreal, you're free falling through clouds and you feel the temperature get cooler as you do!

 


I got to land standing with my instructor which was pretty cool! This is one experience I definitely want to relive!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

Girl you couldn't PAY me enough money to get me to jump out of a plane so KUDOS and I'm glad you had fun!!

 

I go to the beach every year, I'm going to South Padre Island next month Smiley Very Happy

 

I spend a LOT of time in the water---waterpark (Schlitterbahn!!), lake, swimming pool. Getting a tan, reading beauty magazines, swimming and relaxing. That's my kind of summer fun!!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

Schlitterbahn is on my bucket list! Oh, I love waterparks. We have a couple smaller ones on the Gulf Coast, but nothing as awesome as that one!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

Have funnnnnn!!!! I haven't been to a water/theme park in forever!

 

I love being in the water!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

I'm a para-educator (aide) in a special ed classroom so I generally have the summer off.  This summer, in the fun category, I'm going to spend a lot of time writing and a lot of time finding fun walks to go on.  I love walking and during the school year I am often too tired and cranky to get out much so I'm super psyched to have the time off to wander around in the woods.  I'm also going to Chicago \o/.  In the not so fun category I'm having surgery on Thursday and am taking some online classes this summer.  But I choose to focus on the walking and writing and going to Chicago.

 

I'm super jealous of your skydiving, I've always wanted to do that. I'm glad you had so much fun!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

You totally need to one day Smiley Happy it's a blast!

 

Hope surgery goes smooth and you recover in no time!

 

Yay for getting back into the hiking/walking kick and for travel!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

SKYDIVING IS THE BOMB.COM!

Glad you enjoyed the experience. The pic is super cute of you two! Love the look on the faces behind you guys as well Smiley Very Happy

 

I did my first jump in 2011, surprised my friend for his birthday! It was definitely surreal, from the moment you're suiting up all the way to the moment you're on your way back home sharing your experience with eachother! My goggles got tear juice in them when free falling so it was very hard to see, but once the chute opened (my fav part) it was all good from there! Makes me want to go again just reading about your experience!

 

As for my summer, more bluewater fishing!

My dad, brother, boyfriend, and I are pushing to enter tournaments next year so we can get enough experience (weather permitting) this year. My dad will be back in town ready to go in July, so the anticipation is killing me...almost as much as the release of Disney's Ariel line at Sephora!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

Fishhhhhing! My family are huge into deep sea fishing and always make a huge outing for it!

 

When the chute was open I was so caught up with looking down that I kept forgetting to look out and around because you can see for dayyyyyyyyys when you're up in the air!

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

Wow that's crazy! I have friends that are dying to skydive (I could never, I can barely handle roller coasters without tearing up).

 

In just a few weeks I will be going to Kauai! I've been to Maui in the past, but I'm excited for a more mellow lush atmosphere. I'm planning on relaxing, catching up on some reading in the sun, a little swimming, and hiking.

 

Oh and they'll be filming Jurassic Park 4 while we're there (nerd alert I know) which I'm extremely excited about. Apparently the gate is still up, but is a bit of a pain to get to. We'll be renting a car and if it has 4 wheel drive maybe we'll give it a shot.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Summer Fun!!!!

Make a cameo in the film! Smiley Tongue Go for it! "Is that Janine waving????" Hahah!

 

Ohhh, it's so fun, Janine, it's actually not as bad, the whole time the chute is open it's very mellow and calm (unless you run into crazy wind), but Hawaii is super fun too! My cousin got married on the big island a few years back and I've been dying to make another trip, it was so beautiful!
