if i had an orchard.



Happy things*: cups full of crushed pebble ice, and lots of flavored water.

Raspberries, orange/lemon/lime slices and some fresh mint leaves make for a light and summery drink.
(Another good combo: strawberries and cucumbers.)



*a.k.a. things that are currently helping me find solace from another terribly hot summer

  17. here's a similarly cute tip for beating the summer heat: a great substitute for a functioning car AC is an ice cold otter pop under each armpit. shockingly refreshing.

  21. Those drinks look too pretty to drink, but then again they look too delicious not to drink. I might have to make the exact concoctions today, only maybe I'll use club soda. I'm obsessed with carbonation. Isn't that so not-girly of me?
