HOW TO KEEP YOURSELF (AND YOUR SQUAD) ENTERTAINED ALL SUMMER LONG

Ah, summertime: longer days, sweet sunshine, warm breezes, frozen drinks, and plenty of time to lounge with your gal pals. Even the work week seems to be a bit shorter (Summer Fridays, anyone?), which we certainly aren’t complaining about.

But with extra daylight and more leisurely schedules, sometimes we aren’t sure what to do with all that extra time! To help make the most of your summer, there’s this awesome thing called Tribalist to conveniently bring the web’s best lists to your fingertips. Whether it’s a list of summery drinks you can concoct with friends, new books to breeze through on the beach, or the best shows to binge watch with a vina, Tribalist has a list for you.

PLAN A TRIP WITH THE GIRL GANG

Summer: the season of “out of office” email auto-replies. It’s true—most employees tend to maximize their vacation days between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Maybe you’ve been saving up to plan something special, or maybe you just need a quick weekend getaway with the ladies. And what is arguably the best part of traveling? FOOD, obviously! (We would also accept “expanding your knowledge of other cultures”, as long as that incorporates local cuisine). Check out this list immediately for some of the best foodie locales in the country and around the world.

BINGE READ ON THE BEACH

There’s something about summertime that makes us love reading a little bit extra, possibly because the warm weather allows us to take our books with us pretty much anywhere! Whether you’re posted up in the park, lounging in your hammock, or basking in the sun at the beach, books are perhaps the best form of self-entertainment around (once you finally have the discipline to close Instagram and put your phone down). Check out this list for some of the best literary female empowerment of this decade.

MOVIE MARATHON

Summertime is all about enjoying the great weather, right? Except sometimes we’re faced with a mid-afternoon thunderstorm, or temperatures so unbearably hot all we can do it sit inside with the AC on full blast. And what better way to spend a day inside than a movie marathon? Get the rosé and popcorn ready, and check out this list to remind yourself just how vital to our happiness our female friendships are!

So there you have it, you can use Tribalist to basically help you plan any summer activity from beach-side reads to weekend getaways. Don’t forget to find a friend to enjoy the sun with and let us know in the comments below what your fave list is!
