4th of July Essentials


Happy 4th of July! I love this holiday because I am a proud American, and because it is in the beginning of summer the best time of year! Any holiday you can spend in your backyard is what I am about. Here are some things that I have on me every 4th of July weekend.

A healthy dessert option is great to bring to a BBQ. Fruit is the perfect burst of refreshing energy to keep you hydrated and full. These fruit skewers are so festive! Here is the Youtube tutorial.

For something a little more indulgent I like a light, fluffy Angel Food cake with berries and whipped cream. Still sticking to the red, white, and blue theme, without using anything artificial. I love Alton Brown’s recipe.


As for what I am wearing? A patriotic bikini of course! I got this cute top at Target, along with the beads, sidewalk chalk, and beer cozy. These are my essentials for keeping it festive!
