4th Of July BBQ Tips


Happy 4th of July Gorgeous (Yep, I’m talkin to you!).

This red, white and blue holiday brings out the best BBQ food, pool parties and sexy babes. Now, before you start poppin off those fireworks, let’s go over all the do’s and don’ts to make sure your Independence Day goes off with a bang!!

#1.) Do Create An Americana Inspired Outfit

Since we are celebrating the US of A, I think every girl should show some type of tribute to our lovely country. The key is to not go all “Betsy Ross” on us but to show off the American flag colors (and stars!) in a fashionable way. Whether it is a cool accessory, vintage tank or kick ass leggings – bust out your patriotism with a good sense of style. PS. I found this oversized tank at American Apparel – you can totally cut it up and customize it to your liking.

The 4th of July can bring out the biggest summer parties of the year. Gather a group of your favorite friends, head to the beach, lake, pool or somewhere cool and crack open a cold one! Celebrate our fabulous country around the people you love.

#3.) Don’t Come Empty Handed

Now is your time to show off your “secret” Pinterest recipes! Bring a dish that will have your peeps talkin and wanting more. You NEVER want to come to a party empty handed so kindly ask your host what they prefer you to bring. If you simply can’t cook than bring a refreshing bottle of Miraval Rosé  – which was developed by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at their 1,200-acre vineyard in France. For just $24 bucks (available at Whole Foods), you will have a neat conversation starter and a generous thank you gift.

#4.) Do Turn Up The Music

Did you know that listening and singing along to music boosts your positivity?! Create your very own “4th of July Mix” and turn up the tunes baby!

#5.) Do Mingle & Be Social

If you are single and invited to a BBQ than make an extra effort to connect with new people. You never know if Mr. Right will be there too. Bring out your friendly and approachable vibe and loosen up! Maybe there will be an unexpected firework show at the end of your night (wink, wink!).

Please don’t be one of those girls who drinks too many margaritas and ends up in the pool screaming for everyone to come join. Get yourself together! Have a couple cocktails and don’t get so sloppy.
