Found: 7 ways to beat the heat

As Nelly once said, "It's getting hot in herrre." And it is. Literally. The sweltering summer heat has finally arrived, and we're under a heat advisory for the next couple days. I stepped outside this morning, only to be greeted by a fiery-hot blast of air. You know what that means, don't you? There's only one thing to do: Conserve all your energy and find ways to stay cool. To help you in your search, here are seven ways to beat the heat...
Dip in the pool (here are 12 modern pools...).
Drink a sweet treat, like watermelon punch.
Slip into something light and breezy.
Put your feet up and let the cool air tickle your toes.
Curl up on the couch with a good movie (Netflix is offering a one-month free trial).
Let a melting popsicle run down your chin (here are four more popsicle recipes).
And...enjoy a cool summer supper, like the one my mom made last night. It was absolutely delicious!

Your turn, friends: How do you beat the heat during the summer? Any cool (pun intended...) tips and tricks? What's your weather like these days? Do you like hot weather, or not so much? Here's to staying cool... xoxo

How I WISH it was hot in SF–it's so chilly I'm sipping tea and wearing a cashmere sweater!
