The words goodbye summer written in the sand at the beach

Now that the temperatures are showing the first signs of dropping, we know that summer is about to wave goodbye and fall is about to wave hello. 

While we’re sure that you were already living your best life during the hottest season of the year, we still think it’s important to know how to make the most of the summer before the leaves start to fall. 

Beach days under the warmth of the sun may be coming to a close, but there are still a bunch of ways that you can slay to fight off the end of summer blues. From bussin’ foodie trips all the way to lit cocktails, we’ve got you covered with fun activities to keep you entertained during the sunset of the summer season! 

1. Get Your Nails Done

Sis, your nails are a blank canvas that are just waiting to be transformed into a masterpiece. Whether you want to go lowkey neutral or make a high key impact, you can count on Bellagio Nails to ensure that your hands will make a statement. 

Getting your nails done is also a great way to bond with your besties, so call up your squad and get ready to have the most Instagram-worthy nail set ever!

2. Try Out a New Restaurant

Have you ever tasted food that was sooo good that the only way to describe it was ugly delicious

Well, the energy that Ugly Delicious emits is exactly that! This restaurant serves all the good stuff to make your tummy happy. Plus, who says that burgers are exclusively for the summer? Burgers are fast food faves that work in any season! 

We definitely recommend that you sink your teeth into The Classic, a single wagyu patty with American cheese, pickles, lettuce, and tomatoes, all smothered in a heaping of ugly sauce. Also, you simply must pair it with a side of ugly fires, because you would regret it if you didn’t, we promise. 

On another note, if you’re feeling adventurous with a big appetite, we dare you to try their largest, most daunting burger to date: THE UGLY DELICIOUS. This massive burger contains 7 wagyu patties, American cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and the mandatory Ugly sauce. Mind you, though, this burger is only for the brave. 

We may be losing the summer, but we’ll never let go of these ugly delicious burgers. 

3. Put a Fall Twist on a Summer Cocktail

Tropical cocktails may be the flavour of the summer, but a little twist here and there can turn your fave summer drink into the ultimate fall beverage too! 

Autumn is defined by the crisp aroma of cinnamon and apples while the leaves fall to count the days 'till Thanksgiving. Here are a few summer-cocktails-turned-fall-cocktail recipes just for you! 

Aperol Spritz Cocktail

Treat yourself and your guests to a fall-themed Aperol Spritz cocktail.
All you need is Aperol Spritz, club soda, apple cider, prosecco, blood oranges, and blood orange juice. 

Aside from the rich flavour, the magical thing about the Aperol Spritz cocktail is the festive fall colour that amplifies the spirit of the pumpkin season. 

Apple Cider Margarita

Margaritas are made for the summer, but when you pour some apple cider into the mix, they can totally pass as fall cocktails.

The vibrant flavour of apple cider works in perfect harmony with the sophisticated taste of Grand Marnier liqueur. To complete this dreamy apple cider margarita, you need to mix your apple cider and Grand Marnier with tequila, and you’re good to go!

The result is a sweet and tangy cocktail that will make you fall in love with the enchantment of  autumn. Plus, you can sip on your drink while you enjoy a charcuterie board, and sit by the window to admire the amber foliage that unfolds outside. Main character vibes all around!

Fall-ing In Love with the End of Summer

We know that falling in love with summer is easy, but falling in love with the end of summer may not exactly be a walk in the park. You may not be ready to wave goodbye to beach weather just yet, but with the awesome tips we just gave you, you will surely defeat your end-of-summer blues and look forward to the fall season. 

While you do your nails, try new restaurants, and mix autumn-themed cocktails at home, we’re going to give you a summer event to look forward to: The Rosé Picnic 2023

The Rosé Picnic 2022 was an epic success, so we’re bringing the party back to the park next year. For now, let’s toast to the start of fall, because we’ll see you next summer.
