It is Time to Live Large

When Arianna contacted me about doing a post, I knew you'd love her because she is a full-time mom and a fashion-lover, world traveler, animal lover, and family woman extraordinaire . She loves to cook and bake, travel to new places, share great fashion finds, and spend time doing crafts and projects at home with her kids. She's got a crazy busy life, but she wouldn't have it any other way. Go visit her blog HERE and let her know what you think of her guest post! While you're there, follow her!

Arianna took 3 Celebrity Summer Activities and turned them into affordable, fun things we could all do!


Enjoy A Chic Summer

Summer has officially arrived and that means it's time to relax from packing sack lunches and not having to keep track of the carpool schedule! Although it may mean for less of a busy schedule, it also means that it's time to think of summer activities other than playing in the sprinklers or renting a movie from Redbox.

As a mom who wants to still enjoy life and the best that summer has to offer, I decided that this summer season wouldn't slip away from me like all the other years. Instead of taking my children to the library or spending our afternoons in front of the TV, it's time to live large and enjoy the summer the right way! If I'm going to watch the Kardashians sail away into the sunset on a Greek retreat, then I need to have just as much of a chic summer, or something close, where I'm not trapped inside of my home for the next three months. This is where I gathered my closest girlfriends as we came up with a few fabulous ideas, and margarita in hand, to truly celebrate the summer in style!

Celebrity Summer: Beach House in Exotic Locale
With all the money in the world, celebs and stars are able to charter a private jet, enjoy ritzy beach houses and take in spectacular views in Bora Bora and St. Tropez. They may also do a bit of shopping at some of the finest boutiques or lay out in the white sand all summer long. Celebrities like Johnny Depp and Sir Richard Branson are famous for their exotic homes surrounded by crystal clear waters.

Reality Summer: Do a House Swap!
Instead of spending millions of dollars buying beachfront property, many couples and families are finding the joy in house swapping. By switching residences with another tourist in a different city or country around the world, it can make for an affordable getaway that is refreshing for its change in scenery. With this arrangement, you can enjoy the comforts of home during your exotic trip!

Celebrity Summer: MTV Video Music Awards
Stars like Jimmy Fallon and Nicki Minaj often spend a typical summer night brushing shoulders with other celebs at the MTV Video Music Awards. Dressed in daring styles that hit the fashion lists across the Internet. The most recent show included performances by Rihanna and One Direction with host Kevin Hart, making for a raunchy and entertaining night!

Reality Summer: Have a Karaoke Night
Bring the award show entertainment right into your home with a family-friendly night that includes performances by the guests! Dress up as your favorite artist while having a red carpet displayed right at the front door for paparazzi shots! After the performances, have everyone vote at the end of the night and reward winners with musical themed gifts such as headphones or iTunes gift cards!

Celebrity Bachelor Party: Outdoor Gathering
Funny man Jimmy Kimmel enjoyed his last days as a bachelor by exploring the great outdoors with 20 of his closest friends in Vancouver! Sightseeing while bike riding, dining on local seafood, and hiking were some of the rugged activities these fellas took on all weekend long!

Reality Bachelor Party: "Outdoorsman Theme"
For the man in your life or a close buddy, help plan their bachelor party for a masculine outdoors theme with plenty of rugged details and fun activities. Whether set inside or in the wilderness, set the wardrobe by requesting that the men wear flannel to set the mood, and have the food revolve around the outdoors, which include beer lemonade punch, s'mores, and a few steaks.

I know! Ever since I saw the idea in The Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, it's looked like so much fun. 😊
