Today I want to share with you my sponsors swappers and good reads! I would really suggest you go and check out their pages RIGHT NOW!
I asked these ladies to share some memories of summer, ways to beat the heat and summer must haves. They are all awesome and totally good reads. 
First up is my friend Angela from LeMoine Family Kitchen


What are your summer must haves? 

Avons speed dry nail polish and Mark Curl Goddess Gel because her hair and humidity do not mix well she says. 
How do you beat the heat?
We beat the heat by staying indoors during the hottest part of the day unless she is lounging in a pool and she loves to go to the beach after 5pm because there is less people and it is comfortable to hang out. 
Summer vacations? Where do you go? Who do you go with?
We wait until the winter to go on vacation so we can get out of the cold and we head to sunny FL to visit Mickey Mouse at Disney with our boys. 
What is a summer memory that stands out the most from your childhood?
 Summer camping trips with my family and uncles family. Great laughs! Al fresco cooking! Great memories enjoying nature.
Next up is Jane from Taingamala
What are your summer must haves?
Sunscreen, the higher the SPF the better. My Kindle for beach reading and my partner in wave jumping. That would be my ever so handsome husband. The snorkeling gear to swim with the tropical fishes, a great swimsuit, and of course, a camer to catch it all!
What do you like to do during the summer to beat the heat?
Being on a island, the beach is always just up the road and we are almost always at the beach. On the way home, it dosen’t hurt to gram a nice cold passion fruit beer at the local brewery.
Summer vacations? Where do you go? Who do you go with?
I love taking vacations with my husband. We just got back from going to Seattle and Vegas. Double bonus, we live in an amazing place to staycation too. Every weekend is a mini vacation for us. 
What is a summer memory that stands out the most from your childhood?
My family always had amazing summer vacations. I don’t know if I can pick just one. There was always summer camp (day and sleepaway), we always took family trips to California, Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii, just to name a few. We always visited the grandparents in either Washington or Florida. There were always lemonade stands, and block parties. The 4th of July was always an impressive event the whole town was involved in. I had a picture perfect Americana childhood full with amazing memories.
What do you like to do during the summer to beat the heat? Go to the lake! I’m a lake rat. I was raised on the lake, and I spend ever moment of my free summer time on the lake. The east TN humidity isn’t quite so bad if you’re in the water.
What are your summer must haves? My summer must haves are big sunglasses, spf chapstick, wedges and a rum & diet coke with lime (my summer go-to drink).


Hi dolls, I’m Jazmine and I blog over at “http://www.lifeasayoungmomma.com/” target=”_blank”>Life As A Young Mom”. I’m a wife, mommy to two beautiful little boys and a fur momma to a chihuahua name “Bonecrusher” (don’t judge me on the name) lol. I’m a full time worker and student working on my bachelor’s degree for Healthcare Management. I should be done by summer of 2014. I love to cook, bake, read, SHOP, and of course spend time with my boys, family and friends. 


What are summer must have?
Being tan and all I obviously don’t need sunblock lol (sorry to anyone who gets burnt) but to me summer must have is definitely cute swim suits, self tanners for days you actually can’t go tanning, cute wedges, sun dresses, and definitely a REALLY good mani/pedi.


What do you like to do during the summer to beat the heat?
Go to the pool with my boys or the waterpark with friends.


Summer vacations? Where do you go? Who do you go with?
We don’t normally do summer vacations but this summer my parents are planning on going to a resort with the entire family so I’m definitely looking foward to doing that.

What is a summer memory that stands out the most from your childhood?
It’s not a childhood memory but in summer of 2007 my parents, siblings, myself, hubby and my sisters boyfriend all went to Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI and we stayed in a 2 bedroom condo which is huge. It included 3 big queen size beds, pull out couch, jacuzzi, kitchen and fireplace. It was lovely. We we’re there for 3 days and it was fun spending time with the family all together.
