The mere mention of the word summer brings images of white sand, bikinis, and piña coladas. But do you ever get the feeling that you are falling into a routine with your summer getaways?
“While hitting the beach is top-of-mind this season, there are other ways to enjoy the hottest months of the year,” says RJ Buenaventura, Philips General Manager for Personal Health. “It’s the perfect time to catch up with family and friends or spend some much deserved ‘me’ time.”
This summer, why not go for simple but fun activities that can make your time extra worthwhile? Check out the list below for three inspirational ideas.
- Host a makeover with friends
Why not turn your vacation into a staycation? Forget pool parties and picnics! Sometimes, all it takes to make your day is a good old classic sleepover with your closest circle of friends.
“Simple conversations and good company go a long way,” says JC Gallegos, Philips Business Development Manager for Philips Personal Care.
For girls, throwing ‘makeover’ into the mix can spice things up a little. Play stylist to your friends with the Philips Straight & Curl Straightener, which lets you experiment with straight, wavy, and curly hairstyles while providing optimal hair care at the same time.
Thanks to its digital temperature control, you can protect your hair from overexposure to heat. It also takes care of frizz with its ionic conditioning feature.
Cap the night by offering your guests delicious drinks to sip. The Philips Juicer is perfect for batches of guests because it extracts up to 10% more juice and can make up to 2.5 liters of sumptuous refreshments.
- Have a picnic with the fambam
Get that summer high by catching up with those closest to you—your family. Throw an impromptu picnic or go all out with a lavish barbecue party
“Just make sure you cook them healthy food options,” advises Reah Ronsayro, Business Development Manager for Kitchen Appliances. “Healthy and delicious food is very accessible nowadays. You just need to choose the right kitchen partners.”
For culinary versatility, Reah recommends the Philips Airfryer. It can fry, roast, and even bake with just a push of a button. Additionally, it uses superheated air to cook so it cuts off 80% of fat and lessens cholesterol from dishes.
For the refreshments, the Philips Blender is also a fitting tool. It offers limitless possibilities with its variable speed settings that can blend anything from smoothies to soups.
For that barbecue party, the Philips griller can help with those sumptuous grilled dishes without you having to struggle with traditional charcoal grilling. If you prefer cooking at home, however, then try the induction cooker to whip out easy dishes. This flameless kitchen partner can add life to your meals by shortening cooking time by 1/3, therefore better-sealing nutrients in food.
- Spend time with yourself
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. “Stand back and forget about deadlines or schedules. Do things for yourself and enjoy every minute of it,” describes JC Gallegos, Business Development Manager for Personal Care.
For women, Philips epilators can make you feel confident and brand-new. It’ll help you get smooth legs with its tweezing feature that gently removes hair. It even comes with an exfoliation brush that brings out the radiance of your skin.
For men, the multi-groom series can definitely turn you dapper in an instant. It comes with a beard trimmer, hair clipper, and nose trimmer—which are all must-haves for the well-groomed, modern gentleman. You can also opt for the Aquatouch shaver, which can make you look polished in an instant while providing a comfortable shave.
RJ sums it up by saying, “It is not just about riding the waves or exploring new places. In the end, it all boils down to the question—am I happy with the things I spent my time doing? If the answer is a yes, then you are doing the right thing.”
