Ways to Have More Fun This Summer…  

Hey Rockstars,

Whoo hoo. It’s time to step into summer here on the Passionista Playbook, passionate living blog. You’ve officially been A-Listed!

The A-List is my personal list of things that are hip, hot and happening. It’s a lifestyle passionista list. You know, kind of like Oprah’s Favorite Things without the studios or free cars. Anyhoo, it’s summertime, y’all.

Here are the Top 16 Hot Things for this Summer. These are the must haves; from #7 the Pop of Color two-toned sandal wedges to #11 the caviar manicure and #6 Pucker Vodka. Yum.

All of the pics are from my Pinterest boards.

1. Francesca’s Fancy Flip Flops.


I absolutely ADORE these crystal flip flops for breast cancer awareness. I’m holding them up because they are adorned with “jewels” and pink ribbons. You can DIY your own.

2. Your BFFs + The Beach.


What would summer be without your best friends? That’s right. Nothing!

3. Homemade Popsicles.


A tasty way to icy pleasure this summer.

4. Maxi Dresses.

7. Colorful Wedges: Passionista Pink + Orange.
