Spending Your Summer Like a Chic Celeb!
Although there is plenty to enjoy about spending time with your kids during the summer, my friends and I were feeling a bit envious for the same luxuries that starlets get to enjoy, such as tanning on a yacht in St. Tropez or spending the evening at a chic awards show. While we lounged by the pool with our pitcher of sangria, we decided that this summer would be different for us. Instead of being just a couple of moms stuck in the suburbs, we’d truly step this summer up and live like a celebrity!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: MOVIE PREMIERES
With summer blockbusters like “Man of Steel” and “The Smurfs 2”, there are plenty of red carpets for celebs to treat just like another day at work! These events allow stars to bounce from country to country via expensive private jet to promote their latest flick. From Henry Cavil to Adam Sandler, there will be no shortage of movie stars and premieres gracing the pages of Us Weekly!
REAL-LIFE SUMMER: FAMILY TRIP TO THE MOVIES
Although it may not be possible to fly by jet to see the summer’s most anticipated movies, a trip to the movies can still allow you to have fun in a frosty, air conditioned atmosphere. With many movie theaters offering new rewards programs that earn you perks for every dollar spent, a trip to the movies doesn’t have to break the bank! Between “Despicable Me 2” and “Monsters University,” there are a few opportunities to snack on Twizzlers and have a day out with the kids!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: TOUR DE FRANCE
This annual race is one of the most popular sporting events of the season, which made Lance Armstrong a household name before he was disqualified. The competition is thrilling and fierce with only the best cyclists going head to head around curves for a chance to win large monetary prizes for the winners! This year Chris Froome proudly took the title in the 100th anniversary of the race.
REAL-LIFE SUMMER: WHEELS PARTY
Host your own sporting event right in the neighborhood for local kids to participate in and get some exercise! Allow bicycles, skateboards, and rollerblades to compete while creating a racing track that is safe and away from traffic. Provide refreshing wheel shaped treats such as grapes, cheerios, and donuts for rest breaks!
CELEBRITY SUMMER: “ALICE IN WONDERLAND” BABY SHOWER
Kim Kardashian’s celeb make-up artist, Joyce Bonelli, celebrated her baby with an Alice in Wonderland themed shower! Colorful cookie displays and creative decorations transformed the environment into a playful setting.
REALITY SUMMER BABY SHOWER: DIY FAVORITE KIDS BOOK THEME
Use your favorite childhood book as inspiration for a baby shower! Use the colors from the book to decorate the space and create a stunning setting for your guests to enjoy. Ask each guest to place the title of their favorite childhood book in a jar placed at their table and what they want the expectant child to learn from it. The suggestions can be placed in a memorable scrapbook for the child to reference for their first trip to the library!
