    - The smell of salt water
    - Going to the beach (which, I suppose, goes hand in hand with the first item on my list)
    - Disneyland (I usually visit during the summer)
    - Hats
    - Sunscreen
    - Watching ferries come and go

    And, of course, the sudden burst of insects and arachnids like wasps and spiders.

    - the smell of coconut
    - beach - and obviously sand
    - maxi dresses in bright colours with sandals and a bright pedicure
    - big sunglasses and straw bags
    - mojitos
    - swatting mosquitoes away and putting out citronella scented candles to try and keep them at bay

    This, too - at the moment, I think there's about nine fans going in my house. My home isn't able to be installed with an air conditioner system (which I'm reminded of every day), so it's that or bake in the heat. My thermographic camera said my windows yesterday were over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Don't you just love summer?

    Working 70-80 hours a week, never sleeping, not seeing friends, a billion customers, knowing you went straight from exams to working a billion hours a week for two months and then knowing you only have 2 days off before school starts again...oh yes, I love summer :lol:

    Summer is money for me :brows:

    Reviving this after two-year hibernation!.

    Salt Water-esque sandals in bright colors (cherry, yellow) for this summer in particular.
    The smell of lemons
    Chloé's EDP
    Crisp white tops/shirts
    Headwraps
    Ultra loose tanks
    Fresh figs
    Taking a 40-minute train ride for Thai iced tea at my favorite Thai restaurant, so annoying but so worth it. :zorro:
    The smell of freshly-cut grass. More a spring thing but considering I can't smell anything from March-June due to allergies, this can only be enjoyed once summer officially kicks in!.

    Ah, summer! :heart:

    Sunglasses.
    Shorts and slippers.
    No need to bring a jacket with you.
    Straw hats.
    Insane humidity followed by rain and thunder (I love a nice thunderstorm after a hot humid day).
