A Summer You’ll Never Forget

Hey lovely alphas!

It’s XOXOAliciaHeartsYou here!  Now I know I was surprised myself to see that it’s already August.  It feels like summer has gone so quickly, and I’m sure the other girls are feeling the same way.  Well I’m here to tell you that the rest of August (or however long you have left until school starts) can be more than enough time to do anything this summer that you haven’t done yet.

I still haven’t checked everything off of my Summer2k12 bucket list yet.  If any of you lovelies made one and haven’t finished either, go finish it!  It makes the days more fun and you’ll definitely feel accomplished knowing that you were able to do everything that you wanted to do.  If you didn’t make one, do something that you have always wanted to do during the summer.  For me, I’ve always wanted to tape painted-filled balloons to a huge canvas and throw darts at it to make a ‘random masterpiece’.  I had a lot of fun doing it, and I think I would’ve regretted not doing that if I hadn’t done it before school starts.

Here’s my bucket list (I think I forgot a few…) :

[√ ]Ride a few roller coasters

[√]Order from Chipotle in Spanish (I got my tacos for free for doing this! haha)

[ ]Dip-dye my hair

[√ ]Have Sundae Sundays for an entire month

[ ]Learn the song Disaster by JoJo on guitar

[√ ]Get a job interview

[ √]Learn to talk with a British accent and have it sound good

[ √]Tape paint-filled balloons to a canvas and throw darts at it

[ ]Go camping in my backyard

[ √]Go to the state fair

[ ]Draw an infinity-heart on my wrist with sharpie

[√ ]Have a silly string fight with friends

[ ]Buy water guns for Senior Tag

When you look back at the things that have happened this summer, you should feel good and be able to smile about them.  Family vacations, parties, pools, shopping with friends…all of the memories.  No regrets.  It should be a summer that you’ll never forget.

So now it’s your turn to go do anything before summer’s over.  Always wanted to talk to that guy you’ve been eyeing? Talk to him.  Didn’t have time to throw that party? Do it.  Don’t let the thought of school starting soon get in the way, but make sure you are prepared when school does start.

Keep on Alpha-ing♥



“The Help Hotline!”

From Molly: Hi girls! I am in need of help! I am going to an end of summer party next week, and I need something new to wear! Most of my friends are wearing sundresses with sandals. I want to wear that too, but I don’t have a ton of money to buy something expensive! Any ideas…?

Hey Molly, it’s XOXOAHY here.  If you want to wear a sundress like your friends and only have a little bit of money to get one, I know Kohl’s and Target has some really cute ones that aren’t expensive at all.  You could also try Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe, or any department store. There are so many places to get cute sundresses and sandals without having to spend a lot on them.  And if you don’t want to have to buy something completely new, you could always create a “new to you” outfit right from your closet by wearing cute clothes that you normally wouldn’t pair together.  Hope I helped! (:

  1. Hey Alicia! Gorgeous post 🙂 I love your bucket list! Sounds like so much fun! I’ve always wanted to do the paint with balloons thing but I haven’t yet! I may have to add that to my bucket list haha. I liked your answer, you can find cute sundresses everywhere!

  2. Alicia,
    Great post! I love all the things on your bucket list! Some were really cute, like Sundae Sunday, and some were very inspiring, like throwing darts at paint-filled balloons.
    Your tip to Molly is a great one and I completely agree. There are many places where you can purchase sundresses and cute sandals! I also love that you gave her an outfit option that was totally free!


    • Glad you like it, MB! I can definitely say that my bucket list was filled with so many different ideas lol. And definitely-you don’t have to spend a ton of money (or any money at all) to find something cute to wear!

      xoxo, Leesh

  3. I ah-dore this blog! It’s a great idea! You’re definitely right about summer not being completely over yet, and that we can still complete some things we wanted to do during the summer. This has definitely inspired me to do some things I wanted to do before the summer ends. And you gave great advice to Molly XOXOAHY!

    Kisses! Sincerely, GMB
