How to finally sleep well during those hot summer nights!

*Have fresh crisp sheets
Is it me or do they ACTUALLY feel cooler?

* Spread lavender scents
They will sooth your mind like nothing else.

* Invest in an electric fan
This is key to have some cool air flowing in the bedroom (if you don’t have AC of course) and another tip is to have prepared the room beforehand by shutting the blinds during the day. This way the room will be fresh when it’s time to go to bed. Heard that leaving a wet towel drying throughout the day was very useful. Let me know if you test this!

* Wear some cute PJ’s
When I was younger I used to sleep with a big t-shirt when it was too hot. But you end up having way more fabric on you than you would have with a cute short and top ensemble.
Plus you’ll look amazing while you sleep which is always a plus, right? 😉

* Keep the tech away
It just adds in some heat. Instead of that, opt for a nice book or a magazine, or just note down your thoughts regarding that day and your plans for the day after (that’s what I have been doing – and I have been loving it – see instagram post here)!

* Reduce the lighting
To prepare for the night and start getting relaxed.

* Put on some smooth music
Same spirit – are you relaxed yet?

* Keep your little peaking out your cover sheets!
There you go, feeling the fresh air from the fan…

I think a big part of feeling less hot and overwhelmed during those very warm nights is really to calm down and make your whole system slow down.

So most of all, R-E-L-A-X

Today’s Song!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a very nice Tuesday and that your week is going excellent so far. 

For today’s post I was not feeling very inspired to do a recipe related post, so I decided to stay in the food&drinks theme and present to you some nice drinks I had on my Pinterest!

Before going into the very fancy drinks (all non alcoholic), let me share this amazing idea – naturally flavored water!
