Why Don't You...
Summer Edition

 


Illustration by Cerise Zelenetz

 

~ On rainy days, sport your favorite Araks swimsuit indoors while painting or drawing in hues of the same color-blocked palette you have on.

 

~ Blot your favorite summery lipsticks shades on a cream-colored silk scarf and wear as a hair tie to seal your outfit with a kiss.

 

~ Next time you get a meal to go, enjoy your food outdoors while listening to a podcast on your dish's country of origin. The Silk Road for example is a fascinating topic to discover, especially while enjoying chow fun.

 

~ Choreograph a simple synchronized swimming routine with your significant other to be rehearsed with each beach trip.

 

~ Bring your children to a quiet concrete court for their next homework session, giving them brightly colored chalk instead of laptops or paper to write out their arithmetic equations on the pavement.

 

~ Host a weekend gathering of friends, instructing everyone to bring along a single application of their favorite face mask. Swap masks at random and spend the afternoon comparing benefits and effects over mimosas and crudité.

 

~ Have each of your family members pick out a unique leash for your family dog.  Attach all of them to his collar and walk him together in stride.

 

~ Write down the first word that comes to mind upon waking, each day for the entire month. String them together in poetic form, collecting new stanzas throughout the year.

 

~ Go pick wild strawberries or blueberries, using a needle and thread to string them into a vibrant edible necklace to be eaten immediately (after rinsing).
