Embrace The Early Hours

The sun is most fierce between the hours of 10.00am and 4.00pm.  During this time it’s time to retreat to the shade.  Plan your outdoor activities for the early morning or late afternoon when temperatures will be more bearable.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Water is your best friend in the battle against heat exhaustion.  Stay hydrated and refreshed all day long with an insulated water bottle that keeps your drink icy cold, no matter how high the mercury climbs.

Dress For Success

Opt for lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen.  These fabrics allow your skin to breathe and set to evaporate.  Don’t forget to rock a wide-brimmed hat and shades to protect yourself from the sun’s rays.

Don’t forget to keep your pets protected from the heat too.  This pet cooling vest is perfect for keeping your pet cool, even on the hottest days and these doggie shoes are an absolute must for protecting your dogs paws from the extreme heat from the sidewalk.

Seek Shelter

When the heat becomes unbearable, seek refuge in an air-conditioned space.  Places like shopping centres, cinemas or libraries.  Not only will you stay cool, but you might also discover a new favourite book or movie in the process

Stay At Home

Make sure that you keep your home cool by closing blinds and curtains during the day to block out the sun’s heat.  We recommend investing in a portable air conditioner or high velocity fan to turn your home into a refreshing oasis.

In summer, avoid using heat-generating appliances such as an oven and opt for light, refreshing meals.  Think salads, sandwiches and fruit bowls and check out our easy summer dinners, BBQ series and summer chocolate desserts for delicious foods and treats which are quick and easy to make.  And beat the heat with our homemade popsicles made in these  popsicle mold from fresh fruit and fruit juice.

And, when you are out and about, keep your snacks and drinks chilled with an insulated picnic cooler and a chillable wine tumbler will allow you to sip your favorite summer beverage in style no matter how hot it gets.

On the balcony or in the garden, stay cool and protected from the sun’s harsh rays with a sturdy beach umbrella .

Get Wet and Wild

Take a dip in the pool, run through sprinkles or have a water balloon fight.  We love these refillable water balloons for a summer of guaranteed fun!
