There is nothing like the British summer, it can be glorious. But as the sun comes out and we all begin to melt, joy can turn to tears. That’s why, we have put together some of our favourite summer ‘life hacks’ to make your everyday and your holiday fun easier this summer.

Enjoy, and let us know if you have tried any of our suggestions…

Picnic Anyone?

Going on a picnic? Why not keep your drinks cooler for longer by filling empty water bottles halfway with water, freeze, and then add whichever drink you fancy.

Sand free sandwiches

If you are visiting the beach, try using a fitted sheet with a heavy item in each corner to keep sand out of your things.

Avoiding the "ouch!"

Remember to always wear sun tan lotion, but if you are caught out and happen to get burnt, try mixing some Aloe Vera with water, freeze it and ice your body after a long day in the sun.

Keep your drinks cooler for longer.

Want to keep your wine cooler for longer without diluting it?  Freeze some green grapes and put them in your glass of white wine.

Avoiding Sticky Fingers

Avoid sticky fingers by putting a slit in a cupcake liner and using it as an ice lolly drip catcher.

The bug beater

There is nothing more annoying than having a bug land in your drink whilst you are relaxing in the garden, try placing an upside down cupcake liner over your glass and poke a straw through the middle, to help you enjoy a bug free drink.
