We’ve made it to yet another week, Clutchettes and this time we are thisclose to summer. With the increased sunshine brings new opportunities to have a little more fun, so check out these 5 things you should try to add a little zing to your week.
Get Wet: Whether you hit the beach, the lake, or your local pool, taking a dip in some water is one of the most refreshing things you can do. And do worry about your hair. Buy two swimming caps and slather on a little conditioner before you hop in the water.
Eat Breakfast: Some of you may already be up on game, but I’ve come across so many people who say they don’t eat breakfast it ain’t even funny. The phrase, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” is more than a cliché, it’s the truth. Feeding our bodies shortly after we wake up kicks up our metabolism, feeds our brains, and keeps us from binging on junk food throughout the day. Don’t like “typical” breakfast foods? Make a sandwich, drink a smoothie, or eat “lunch” for breakfast. Just eat something (healthy)!
Pamper Yourself: Listen, I’m not a girly girl, but I love a good pamper session. Whether you give yourself a deep conditioning treatment or allow the lovely lady at the local salon to go HAM on your hands and feet, taking care of yourself is one of the most important things you can do. So this week, make that appointment, run some bath water, get your boo to give you a massage, or pull our your beauty tools and get to work.
Watch a foreign film: One of the easiest ways to indulge in a different culture is to watch a foreign film. If you’re studying another language, films from other countries gives you a chance to practice, and if you just love travel but can’t afford it, films can easily transport you around the world.

Plan a road trip: Summer is here and you know what that means? Vacations! Even if your money is funny, taking a trip is not out of the question. Road trips are fun, economical, and can be full of memories, so start planning one today. Not sold on being stuck in a car for hours on end? Consider planning a day trip to a local amusement park, lake, or monument.
That’s it for now…what’s on your list for the week?
