I’m in denial. It’s end of August and I’m still holding onto summer!

As it happens every year, the summer months pass too quickly. How many weekends of summer do we actually get to enjoy? It’s always never enough!

While summer officially doesn’t end until mid-September, I’m going to remain positive knowing that the weather will remain warm until Halloween. Positive thinking!

I’ve had a jam-packed summer of travel so I’m likely going to stay local for what’s left of summer. A day trip on the long weekend might be in order with the family.

Well, let’s keep holding onto summer as much as we can with an End of Summer Giveaway!

I’m looking forward to trying Nair™ Argan Oil Cire Divine with Bye Bye Ouch! With the Nair™ Pro-Sensitive complex. The wax adheres perfectly to the hair while adhering less to the skin, so the uncomfortable sensation associated with waxing is reduced. Enriched with organic argan oil and orange blossom known for their moisturizing and nourishing qualities.

    I live in So Cal. We have no end of summer and no end of summer traditions.

  2. We have a big picnic, and I donate all the summer clothes that have been outgrown.

  3. We actually don’t have an end of summer tradition. Just don’t seem to have found anything that works for us.

  4. I don’t think we do. But come to think of it, I do stock up on fall scented candles near the end of the summer!

  5. I actually do a deeper “end of summer” cleaning than spring cleaning. I love to get the home and my closet prepped for the coziness of fall and winter!

  6. We always have a labour day BBQ rain or shine! It’s a family tradition where we get our friends and family together for one big celebration before back to school.

  7. We usually try to do a final end of summer vacation camping trip.

    No end of summer anything going on, we just get the yard ready for winter and check around the house make sure nothing needs to be repaired before winter and just enjoy the warm weather before the cold comes in!

  9. Are tradition is going out and buying all the school supplies. They we get to sit as a group and label everything.

    The last weekend before school starts we do a family BBQ and pot luck.

  12. My end of summer tradition is to have a barbecue party with family, friends, neighbors, it’s a lot of fun.

    Every year, at the end of summer, we have a big corn boil with all our friends in the back yard!

  14. Finishing up the outside of the house and painting the fence…last minute touch-ups to maintain and make the outside beautiful, like windows, etc.

    I have no end of summer rituals. I just try to stay happy in spite of the upcoming cooler weather.

    Our end of summer traditions include a trip to the local fair the Labour Day weekend (which we did today!), and a dinner out to celebrate the start of the new school year.

  18. We get family haircuts and I always give myself a facial at the end of summer 🙂
