Memorial Day is the unofficial beginning of the summer. Whether at the beach, a family bbq or a three-day excursion, look great this weekend by wearing one of summer’s essential accessories: sunglasses. Protect your eyes from the sun with these chic and stylish shades for any face shape.

With the sun’s warm rays increasing temperatures, beating the heat becomes a daily challenge. One of the easiest, and most enjoyable, ways to combat the heat is indulging in a rich, cold cone of ice cream. But when a simple sundae won’t do, check out these nine places for the best ice cream in the nation.

Although an ice cream cone is a quick cool down solution, it is not exactly bikini body friendly. Fortunately, this list advises what to eat and what to avoid to help get your body beach-ready; unfortunately, ice cream is not on the “to eat” list.

Even though nutritious eating is important for a healthy beach body, diet isn’t everything. Exercise is equally important and can be done anywhere, even in a dorm. For those looking to impress in sandy beach volleyball games and beyond, here is an effective arm circuit workout to help tone the upper body.

While drafting up your summer bucket list, why not write up another list for things to do in the future? Read this list of 10 things to do before you turn 30, then get inspired to create your own collection of things to accomplish by a certain milestone.
