Break out the open toed sandals, bright colored polish and linen pants, shoulder bearing tops – summer is here! In Phoenix, summer arrives a little earlier before it hits the rest of the country, as it always does so I’ve had quite a head start!

I prepped my winter skin before getting my base tan in Thailand and now I’m ready to go on my “summer tour” aka – travel and enjoy all that summer has to offer around the country. I like to refresh my seasonal basics so I can be up with current trends and wear them over and over until the end of the season.


My summer ready check-off list:

  • New swimsuit, or two. I am digging one pieces with cut outs.
  • Bright nail polish
  • New beach towel (love the circular towel trend)
  • Fun tumbler
  • A summer hat, or two
  • Stock freezer with Weight Watchers® ice cream (to satisfy sweet tooth and stay swimsuit ready) from Albertsons
  • Fill home with citrus, summer candles
  • Change foundation/makeup colors lipstick and blush

(3 SmartPoints™ value; 60 calories per bar)


We always stock our freezer with ice cream, that’s when you know summer has hit our home. We offer water, and ice cream bars to the delivery men (FedEx and UPS visit our home daily), our mailman, gardener, and all our tiny tots that come visit.

The temptation to eat all of these is like Halloween candy – you buy your favorite kind because you know you’re going to eat most of them, and so the Weight Watchers® Ice Cream variety is a great way to keep us in check for a healthy lifestyle. The new Dark Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Bars and the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars are 3 SmartPoints™ value; 60 calories per bar. You can find the products at Albertsons and more ideas of delicious, better for you snacks.
