~ Stay consciously cool this summer with an eco-friendly fan.
~ Paint your left hand's nails to match your right foot's toes and vice versa so crossing your legs will result in each side's coordination.
~ Point to a spot on a spinning globe with your eyes closed and create your day's outfit based on the location at which you land.
~ Take a weekend road trip with your significant other, pulling over at each rest stop along the way to exchange small gifts purchased there (lottery tickets, ice cream bars, etc.).
~ Belt your largest pair of trousers with a colorful satin ribbon. The oversized effect pairs quite nicely with a slim turtleneck or simple tank.
~ While swimming laps, add a fanciful spin to each completed circuit. The act will boost your heart rate as well as inject a bit of dramatic flair into your workout.
~ Ask your coworkers for a list of their favorite upcoming outdoor events. Attend the one you would be least likely to discover on your own.
~ Take four colorfully striped beach towels and sew them together to create a modern beach blanket. Share with your partner on the next sunny day.
~ Dedicate a small desk drawer at work to your favorite sunglasses. Having them close by will act as a reminder to enjoy your lunch break outside in the sun.
~ Tie a variety of colorful streamers to your rotating fan, transforming it into an absorbing toy for the family cat.
~ Prepare petite brie and fig jam toasts for your next outdoor fete. Place the tray out ahead of time, allowing the brie to melt thoroughly in the sun before serving.
