This is the first year my family ever rented out kayaks and paddle boards and it was awesome! Throughout the whole week I have seen so many people doing both of these activities where we are staying and it looked like so much fun so I convinced my family to try it. We liked paddle boarding a little bit better than kayaking but we had just as much fun doing both!
I have to make a shout out beauty post to my younger sister for her hair! She is only 13 but she is starting to try out a lot of different hairstyles. She's been rocking the sock bun, messy buns, different ponies, but my favorite was this new hair tie she bought:
The ponytail has this big black bow on it that looks so chic, especially in her hair. Look at the natural texture of her hair. My other sisters and I are all jealous of her perfect waves! Absolutely gorgeous.
This is the design I picked out. I love it!
Yesterday my family and I went to Rehoboth to shop. I bought myself one book - my family always has to check out the bookstores - but the coolest thing I got was when my sisters and I all got henna tattoos! I thought about getting a real tattoo for my birthday but I didn't know what or where I wanted it. So it's cool to get a henna and try it out!I love the pink bow! It's definitely my style :)
Today it seemed too cold for the beach this morning, so we went to shop again in the little shopping area in Lewes. I bought several things but my favorite is my new sun hat! I've wanted one for a while but never found one I really liked.
My family and I made a trip to the Dogfish Head Brewery in Rehoboth. We didn't have enough time to take a tour so we just stopped in for a tasting. They let you taste any four beers you like and then you can shop around in their gift shop. It was pretty cool and they have so many flavors of beer. I tried their Tweasondale, Midas Touch, Firefly Ale, and Sixty-One, which I believe was their newest one. They were all good; they have such different tastes. Afterward we (of course) shopped around and my parents bought tshirts and beer and I picked out keychains and car decals for us! I've heard great things from others about visiting the brewery and I thought it was pretty cool so I recommend it!
My favorite drink to take along to the beach are these frozen cocktails with alcohol. There are many different brands but this one has Arbor Mist. You simply stick them in the freezer and when you're about to head to the beach you rip off the top and either stick a straw right in the pouch or you can squeeze them out into a cup and take it along to relax on the beach. It's just like a slushie and soo delicious!
Today was our first full day on vacation in Delaware. We already used the pool, hit the beach, and went out for dinner. I love where we are staying because there is a community pool and a stretch of bay right in our backyard. We can go back and forth from our house to the pool/bay however often we need.
For dinner we went to The Wharf which is right down the road from where we are staying. After dinner we walked around the shopping area but since it is Sunday night everything is closed. So we will have to go back another day! :)
Today is my last day at GREP. I can't believe it is here already; this summer literally flew by. I have had two really great internships this summer and I am so grateful for the opportunities I was given. I know that my experiences will help me in the future whether its with the connections I've made or using the skills I've learned!
I still did a lot on my last day though! They are moving things around in the office and asked me to help. I moved a lot of files and things in their supply closet so it is more organized; a true intern task!! Now I am just helping them with whatever extra things they need to get done and soon the day will be over. So bittersweet to see the end of these internships! :( two weeks left and then I will be starting classes again. Can't believe it!
All the files I moved around!
P.S. Two of the ladies in the office also took me to lunch again! We went to the Peanut Bar and I got a delicious crab cake sandwich. So nice of them! :)
Twisted headbands/scarves are one of the latest hair trends. I've seen a ton on Pinterest and I think this is a trend that will transition from summer to fall. They look super cute and chic. It's a good style that is easy to do for work, running to class, or just hanging out.
These are some styles I found on Pinterest. I like how each girl is wearing it a different way. They were all linked to Etsy, where you can purchase them!
