4 of July

I’m back!! After a lovely long weekend, some time to catch up with family and friends, and enjoy Canada Day… I am back and ready to get BLOGGING!

After a night of fireworks to celebrate Canada Day… my mind has wandered to the fact that America will be lighting up their skies with fireworks this Friday for Fourth of July. So I have decided to do a blog post on ways my American friends can incorporate their flag into their lives this Friday.

Clothing… probably the most obvious way to incorporate your flag. Their are many different clothing items promoting the American flag available for sale on the high street. However you don’t have to deck yourself from head to toe, you could just use one item… or create an outfit of red, white and blue…. e.g red top, blue shorts, white shoes.

Many of you will be getting your kit off this Friday… I am sure!… whether it is at the beach, back garden, pool whatever… everyone seems to get a little naked on July 4th. So show your patriotic by plastering your flag on your private parts! There are lots of cute bikini’s available at places like American Apparel, Target, Nastygal.

Having people over? Or just hungry? Food is the way… not only is it delicious but you can have some fun by adding the American flag into your meals.

Why not bring some of that pride indoors, adding decorative pieces to your interior is not only being patriotic but also making your space look great. There are so many DIY ideas online to add some flag into your house.

Now all that’s left to decorate is your car. You don’t have to paint the whole thing in an American flag… unless you want to, and if in that case don’t hold me responsible. You can add a simple car flag… these are super cheap and easy to get a hold of… especially with the world cup going on.

I hope you all have a fantastic July 4th… and an amazing long weekend! Be safe and have FUN.
