Cool down with these summer treats


Here's few ideas to keep you cool over summer.

Make a large jug of Mojitos to drink with friends on the deck.
Wear something that is light and breezy that lets the air flow through.
This cotton lace kaftan over a pair of bikinis with a wide brimmed hat
will do the trick nicely.
Whip up some homemade lime or kiwi fruit popsicles for the kids.
Make up a healthy salad with green mango and cucumber.
You will feel so fresh you won't even notice how hot it is!
