My hubby loves tennis. He was actually the New Mexico tennis state champion back in his high school days, so when we started dating I knew I wanted to take up the sport so we could play together. Every summer we play tennis on the weekends and I’m finally good enough to play a whole game! It’s also given me a good excuse to get a cute tennis outfit to add to my work out clothes collection (see my favorite hiking outfit here).
With our recent move to a new neighborhood came the need to change clubs too. I loved the last club we were members of. It had the most beautiful mountain views and a really relaxing atmosphere. The club that’s near our new house is heavily focused on fitness, which has been a major disappointment. I usually spend 3 days or so a week with the little one at the pool in the summer, but the club we are currently members of only has a tiny area that is less than five feet deep since they have a swim team. It’s not appealing at all, so I’m a little bummed about that (rough life, I know!). They do offer drop in childcare, which the little one loves, and it allows me and the hubby to play tennis for an hour without having the little one on the court with us, so that’s a plus. I guess I should have asked about that before we became members…..lesson learned. Next summer we will try out yet another club and see if it has a better social atmosphere.

A few useful hair care tips for healthy and shiny hair this summer
The summer heat really doesn’t do much good to our hair, instead it causes more trouble. While there are many tempting things that we can look forward to escape the heat like swimming or just sitting by the pool with a cocktail, there can be quite a bit a damage that your hair can experience in the process. That is why you should take extra care of your hair during this time by following these simple tips;
1) Cover your hair with a hat whenever you are out :
Direct exposure of hair to the sun can cause hair damage and it can loose it’s natural texture and color. Make sure you protect your head either under an umbrella or a hat. This way you can stay outdoors without causing any damage to your hair.
2) Condition your hair regularly:
During summer, your hair tends to become more dry, fizzy and can even sprout up split ends. So, use a good conditioner that protects your hair and scalp from drying and conditions it to the roots.
3) Get a hair cut :
If you have been waiting to get her a haircut, then now would be a good time. Longer hair would mean a longer time under the dryer which is not a good idea. In fact, staying as far away as possible from the dryer would do the trick. Instead of drying your hair, you can just opt to go for a shorter hair cut. And boy! Wouldn’t you be relieved a whole lot!
4) Eat healthy :
The secret to gorgeous hair is healthy nutrition. So, consume foods that rich in iron, zinc and Vitamin C. This plays an important role in balancing your energy levels as well. So, drink plenty of juices or maybe even a cup of frozen yogurt and cool yourself down.
5) Don’t stress :
The heat can get to anyone, but don’t let it ruin your mood. Relax and try to play a few games online and enjoy the various GameVillage promotions for unexpected prizes.
