We scream for ice cream
Cooling down in these temperatures is necessary. We don’t need an excuse for ice cream! Yes, we know ice cream is available year-round in the supermarket but we like to push the boat out during the summer months. What about fresh Italian gelato in your favourite flavours, frozen yoghurt with all kinds of topping, unicorn ice cream or a mega instagrammable and unique cone? We can’t resist!
What is summer without cocktails? Even if you have a virgin cocktail, a delicious mojito, cold pina colada or fruity daiquiri is always a good idea! Those fresh summery colours always put a smile on our faces. Why not make your own cocktails with cool glasses and fun straws (flamingo!), invite some girlfriends over and have a fun cocktail evening.
You’ll smell this in every street when the sun comes out: the barbecue. The thought of it is already making us hungry! Grilled meat or fish, some vegetables and delicious fruit. We could certainly get used to it! And don’t forget a fresh baguette with (homemade) dips.
This yummy Italian dish is not just a summer favourite. We could eat it every day (if every day was a cheat day). Why not try something different this summer? Or make your own pizza! Many supermarkets sell ready-made pizza bases (handy!) or if you have some spare time on your hands, you can make everything from scratch. Find a nice sunny spot in the garden or on your balcony, open a good bottle of wine and imagine you’re in Italy. Enjoy life!
The ultimate Sunday morning feeling can be created with a huge stack of pancakes topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries and grated coconut. Yum! And of course you should eat breakfast while wearing loose summery pyjamas. Check out our complete nightwear collection here.
