All winter long, I dream of summer. I can’t wait for the sun and the heat and spending days soaking up vitamin D. Then, summer comes and the heat rolls in and I find myself dreaming of fall so I can escape the 109 degree weather. Catch 22, right? Anyway, one of my favorite ways to keep cool during the heat and help me love summer again is to drink lots of refreshing fruity drinks!
My go-to drink is a watermelon strawberry slushy type thing and it’s super easy to make: I just throw two cups of watermelon, one cup strawberries, a cup of ice, 1/4 cup of sugar and a tiny squeeze of lemon juice and blend it all together in our ninja blender. Fruity and fresh and perfect for summer. And, it tastes even better in these ADORABLE mason jars, which are perfect for summer picnics and backyard bbq’s.
Mason Jars are all the rage right now and I’ve been dying to get my hands on some to use to accessorize shoots and take our summer parties to the next level. Mason Jar Lifestyle is a small business that creates every known accessory to take a mason jar to the next level and repurposes them to function in so many different ways!
Not only do they create adorable lids to make a mason jar a cute drink holder, they have stainless steel straws or glass straws (which are made of the same glass as pyrex dishes, so super strong). Trust me, Rosie knocked off the glass straws from the table and they did not break; these babies are made to last! And how about that adorable jar caddy to tote all your mason jars around? So practical and adorable!
