20 Summer Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas

Summer Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas
It's officially summer and I'm really excited about the next few months. I have a few trips planned. Next week I'm going to Valencia with my family. You may have read my post about my previous trip to Valencia, if not you can check it out here. It's a lovely city, and I'm going to show my parents around. It's fun to travel alone, but spending time with family is always nice too! Up next I'm going back to Florence again and maybe to Paris. So lots of travel posts coming up!

For today I would love to share with you some lifestyle blog post ideas. Coming up with post ideas can be difficult. There are weeks where I'm really feeling it, I have lots of new titles and drafts ready. And other weeks I just don't have enough ideas or inspiration. If you have that too, it's completely normal. Everyone has that once in a while. What can definitely help, is keeping a calendar with posts for every week so you're never out of ideas. My main blogging goal is having the calendar and write a few posts in advance as well. Below I've listed a few blog post ideas in the lifestyle niche.

1. One Week Watermelon Diet
Isn't watermelon a must have fruit to eat in summer?! Why not show everyone how fun and delicious it is to eat watermelon every day the whole summer long. 

2. Swimwear Brands To Check Out
Summer means beach. And going to the beach means that you have to have a cute bikini. There are tons of swimwear brands, show your followers where they can score the bikini you're wearing or one that's on your wish list. 

3. How To Properly Pack A Suitcase
Packing isn't the most fun part of traveling. With some extra tips, you can make it easier and faster for your readers. 

4. A Post About Your Dream Summer Job
Everyone has a dream job, but there are also dream summer job. Mine would definitely be to work as a lifeguard in Australia at Bondi Beach. How cool would that be! 

5. Share A Freebie 
You can share a freebie or any type of free printable. There are so many things you can design, maybe a cute notepad?

6. Make A Summer Scrapbook
Another creative idea. If you're really into crafting than this is the perfect time to share it to the world, with pictures of your recent trips or photos with friends. 

7. Share Your Favorite Smoothie Recipe
I wanted to write down, "share your favorite cocktail recipe'', but then I thought, I love smoothies way more! 

8. Make A Reversed Bucket List
Everyone knows the summer bucket list. But wouldn't it be nice to write down all the things you already accomplished?

9. How To Plan The Perfect Summer Party
If you're into parties, then summer is a great time to host your own. Let your followers know how they can plan their party too, with a complete party guide. 

10. Holiday/City Guides On The Places You've Visited
Maybe you've been abroad and came across some must-visit restaurants and hidden spots. 

11. Take The Time To Look For 5 Extra Books To Put On Your Reading List
I have to be honest, reading isn't something I like to do. Although, if the book is really good, I kind of like it to an extent. 

12. Show Your Favorite Go-To Spots In Your Neighborhood
You're a travel guide of your own hometown. Why not use that advantage and show your readers around. 

13. A Glimpse Into Your Morning/Bedtime Routine
During summer you wake up earlier and go to bed later. You can show what you normally do, what your daily routine is.  

14. A Living Room(or bedroom, kitchen etc.) Reveal
When it's summer you can make your home feel summery too, by adding cute and colorful decorations or furniture. 

15. How To Edit Your 'Natural Lighting' Photos
Taking photos is the most fun thing to do! Editing is a whole nother level. 

16. Ways To Spend Your Weekends During The Summer 
If you have a few months of summer holiday, the weekends are the best time to do things with family and friends. You can write a post about how you like to spend your weekends. 

17. Host A Giveaway
This is a great way to gain extra followers as well. And it's always fun to see others be happy with something they won. 

18. Interview Your Favorite Blogger
This is an idea I have in mind for quite some time. I'm still not sure who I'm going to interview, because I have so many bloggers I want to ask. 

19. Give Up Something You Love, coffee- Chocolate, tea
Sometimes giving up something you love makes you appreciate it, even more, when you don't have it. It's just a fun challenge. (For me Nutella is definitely a challenge)

20. What Makes The Summer of 2018 Special For You
And the last summer blog post idea is sharing with your followers why this summer is special to you.

Best Things To Do In Florence


Best Things To Do In FlorenceDo you have that too? That feeling you get when you just got back from a trip and are so excited to already plan your next adventure abroad? I have that, a lot. Travel for me is one of the things I enjoy doing the most. I still have so many places I want to visit. On top of my list right now are San Francisco, Paris, Oxford and Bordeaux. I'm more into the southern kind of lifestyles and countries. And you know, the thing about travel is, is that you never come back the same. All the new experiences and situations you experience while traveling are something to treasure for a lifetime. The first two weeks of June I went on a two-week language trip to Florence, the city of music arts and so much more! There were street artists, opera singers, people playing the violin in front of the Duomo and just music at almost every corner. Florence is quite a small city, I like that more. You can find your way around the city fast and feel faster at home too. I've listed some of the best things you can do in Florence. Get comfy and read further now! 

Academia Galleria 
This is definitely a must when you're planning a trip to Florence. It's a beautiful art gallery situated in the city center with the famous statue of David Michelangelo. It's one of the best museums in Florence. It was almost unreal to see the statue, it's much bigger than you think. When you walk into the entrance the first thing you see is a big group of people surrounding the statue with a camera. It's just out of the movies! The best thing you can do is to buy all your tickets for the museums online, you can get skip the line this way. Especially during summer the waiting lines can get as long as 4 hours. 


Amorino Gelateria 
This ice cream shop is close to the Duomo. There are many Gelateria's, but at this shop you can get an ice cream in the shape of a flower and with a macaron on top. It's perfect for an Instagram shot and it tastes even better! I choose strawberry, lemon and raspberry, with a strawberry macaron on top. The ice cream tastes really good, because it's made from 100% natural ingredients. You can find them as well in Milan, New York and Paris. They have the best ice creams!





Academia Europea di Firenze

During my stay, I choose to study Italian at a language school here in Florence. The school is called Academia Europea and lots of musicians from all over the world come here to take music lessons, study abroad, and in combination take Italian classes. It's not just a language school, but also a sort of academy for arts and music. It's cool that you can even take piano lessons free of charge on the side. The teachers are really nice too, you get a lot of personal attention and feedback and the lessons are usually in small groups. I was in a group of just three students. The academy also has fun activities, like going to a museum, having dinner with all the students and teachers or going to a concert together. If you're looking for a language school than I do recommend it! The location is also good, it's situated in the center close to shops and bars. 











Shopping 
Shopping in Florence is not very difficult. There are so many different shops, from designer boutiques to the more small vintage ones. You can of course shop at a Zara, H&M, Mango or Coin, the Italian department store. I did shop at Zara because I love the brand! But I also went to the smaller clothing shops with Italian brands, brands that you can't find back home. If you love jewellery, than you have to go to the famous bridge, the Ponte Vecchio. There are jewellery shops all in gold left and right. I bought a ring with a small red stone as a memory of my trip. At Via di Tornabuoni you can find all the designer shops, like Dolce & Gabbana, Bvulgari, Prada and Gucci. 

Pitti Palace
Another museum that's definitely worth visiting is the Pitti Palace. The Palace was home to Luca Pitti, a banker from one of the richest families of Italy for over 300 years. It's really nice to see, especially the king and queen's bedroom. The palace is beautiful, the ceilings, balcony's everything is made with lots of color and detail. I haven't had a chance to visit the gardens yet, next time! 

Tips And Other Fun things:
-For a beautiful view of the city of Florence you have to go to Piazzale Michelangelo
-The closer you are to the Duomo, the more expensive restaurants and shops will be. If you walk a little bit further you can find good restaurants for less, and maybe even better. 
-If you want to be around less tourists, than you can cross the Ponte Vecchio
-If you love art, than Florence has lots of art exhibitions you can go to. 
-There also is a science experiment in Palazzo Strozzi. It's an experiment combining arts and science to see how humans reacts to plants and the other way around. 



Have you ever been to Florence?
Have a lovely day,

Cute Gift Alert // Design Your Mug

design your own mug
Hoi allemaal!

Het is alweer juni! De tijd vliegt dit jaar! Het zonnetje is weer lekker aan het schijnen en het voelt aan als echt zomerweer. Juni staat voor mij weer in het teken van reizen. Als je aan mij zou vragen wat ik het allerliefste doe, dan staat reizen met stip op nummer één. Eerst ga ik naar Florence, dan Rome en daarna terug naar Valencia. Stay tuned, want ik er komt een blog post aan met hotspots in Florence. Vandaag wil ik met jullie iets delen wat misschien een cool cadeau idee kan zijn voor jezelf of iemand anders. Lees gauw verder!

Het is altijd handig om een cadeau in voorraad te hebben voor wanneer er een familielid, of een vriend of vriendin jarig is. Er zijn natuurlijk heel veel dingen die je aan iemand zou kunnen geven. Van sieraden, tot bloemen, tot makeup en dat kan soms lastig zijn iets origineels te bedenken. Misschien heb jij dat ook, maar cadeaus kopen vind ik altijd het leukste om te doen. Je weet en hoopt dat je de ander er blij mee gaat maken. Maar het gaat uiteindelijk om het gebaar! Toevallig kwam ik op een site terecht waar je je eigen mokken kunt bedrukken. Het maakt niet uit of je gek bent op thee of koffie! Je kunt bijvoorbeeld een afbeelding van je hond laten bedrukken. Of een leuke vakantiefoto waar je aan herinnerd wil blijven. Je kan zelfs motiverende quotes of logo's plaatsen. Zelf zou ik gaan voor een mok met foto of quote, en dan een inspirerende quote om zo de dag goed te starten met een kop thee. Ook vaderdag komt er weer aan, een schattige foto met jezelf en je vader van vroeger zou een super leuk idee zijn.

De twee mokken die het meeste lijken op wat ik zou kiezen zijn deze twee. Een selfie met een vriendin vrolijk meteen je dag op en geel is gewoon een vrolijke kleur voor de zomer. De andere mok heeft een quote als opdruk met smile and be happy. Deze quote zou ik eigenlijk ook wel kiezen omdat het ook weer een positieve draai heeft. Goed om te weten is dat de mokken vaatwasserbestendig zijn en je ze ook in kleinere aantallen in de webshop kunt bestellen. 

Wat voor foto zou jij willen laten bedrukken op je mok? 

Liefs,
Isabella
