30 things you should do this summer

Ah summer time. The lovely weather and long days at the beach. Trips to the ice cream parlour and the sun on your skin, the smell of barbecues.
But in all honestly, how many of you are sick of summer after the first week or two especially if you're not in uni or school? And summer can be rubbish in the uk because the weather is almost always crap. 
 It doesn't take long for me to get bored of going on walks down the beach or out shopping so I've rounded up 30 things you should do this summer. I am going to try and do all of these things this year..wish me luck!

1. Go on a picnic. Make everything from scratch and take fancy cutlery and fresh flowers. Check out Zoe Suggs amazing post on her picnic party here if you haven't seen it. 

2. Go 30 days without using heat on your hair. This can be difficult but your hair will thank you by the end of it.
3. Go berry picking
4. Create a summer playlist
5. Build a fort outside
6. Journal every.single.day.
7. Read
8. Explore local attractions. In the welsh countyside there is a lot of things to see.
9. Jump into the pool/sea with all of your clothes on.
10. Change your hair colour. Even if its a wash-in wash-out. Its fun to experiment.

11. Wake up to watch the sunset
12. Go on a date
13. Test out some pinterest hacks. Here are some I want to test out.
14. Sit with a glass of wine, or any drink of your choice, with friends and watch the sunset.
15. Have a clear out.
16. Feed the ducks
17. On a clear night, stargaze. This is something I've never done and its one of the main things I want to do this summer.
18. Crazy golf
19. Make a 3 course meal of food you have never cooked before for your family and friends
20. Make your own lemonade. Or even better, make PINK lemonade. You can find a great recipe here.

21. Have a day without any technology. No phone, laptop, ipad or telly.

22. Make cocktails with your friends.
23. Grow a plant and see if you can keep it alive until the end of summer
24. Have a water balloon fight. A classic
25. Feeling romantic? Kiss someone in the rain.
26. Read a trilogy. My favourite is the hunger games.
27. Bake a cake and decorate it with everything you love.
28. Drink a hot chocolate on the beach at night.
29. Spend a whole day watching Disney films
30. Make a scrapbook to remember all of your summer memories.

What are some things you would've added to this list? You can also see my summer boards on pinterest here & here.
