I know that it's been a little quiet around these parts lately. Life has been busier than ever between summer obligations and work travel, and this summer heat seems to sap any extra energy I might have at the end of the day.
When the temperatures rise above 100 degrees and the heat index even higher, we go into summer survival mode. Lately, this is what I suggest doing to survive the summer heat.
Bust out a Swim SuitWe might be headed to the pool or the beach, but swimming is a necessary part of surviving South Carolina summer.
Drink Plenty of BeveragesI'm not talking about adult beverages (though I did share some ideas for Wino Wednesday earlier this month). I've been loving all the frozen seasonal drinks that show up on summer menus. This time of year is probably the most important time to really focus on hydration. I aim for 80-100 ounces every day and more if I'll be doing outdoor activities.
Honestly, I wear sunglasses year-round, but the glare of a South Carolina sun in the afternoon will have me digging in my purse the second I step out the door. I literally won't take another step until I find them.
Keep Your Shades Handy
Today is National Sunglasses Day, which is all the more reason to celebrate a cool pair of shades. We both found with our annual optometrist visists, that our prescriptions had changed.
We all know that prescriptions glasses can get price-y quickly, and since we'll both need new frames and sunglasses, I'm happy to share a cost-saving option - Warby Parker's Summer 2016 Collection.
The newest Warby Parker Sunglasses in the Summer 2016 Collection include shapes for both women and men in super fun summer colors such as Grapefruit Soda, Sand Castle, Ocean Mint, and Belize Blue.

I can use Warby Parker's Home Try-On program, and they'll send me five pair to try on risk-free to help me decide which pair to purchase.
Also, for every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need through Warby Parker's "Buy a Pair, Give a Pair" program.
With prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses starting at just $95, and progressive lenses starting at $295, I hope you'll join me in seeing summer better through Warby Parker.
