Ah, the final lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer! Well, I’m not so sure about lazy, but crazy is a good way to describe my family’s summer! Between packing and unpacking suitcases for family trips, chauffeuring my kids to play dates, and keeping up with my own hectic work schedule, I barely get any time to relax and unwind.
My girlfriends and I decided that this summer was going to be different, and that we were going to make it a priority to spend more time having fun together. After reading a few articles about how celebrities revel in style, we came up with a few fun ways that we could whoop it up just like the stars! Below I put how the stars are celebrating, and then below what you can do to celebrate celebrity style for less!
Celebrity summer: Jet setting to the MTV Music Video Awards
You’re in for a wild night, whether you have a ticket or are tuning in! The famous and fabulous like J. Lo and Lady Gaga flaunt their outrageous style on the red carpet, and nominated performers like Rihanna and One Direction belt out award-winning hits. But the real action happens behind the scenes, and the tabloids will be dishing on all the juicy celebrity gossip for weeks!
Reality summer: Sing Your Heart Out At Karaoke Night!
Host your own music awards show! Rent a karaoke machine, and invite your guests to dress up like their favorite nominated artists and perform award-winning songs. Have everyone vote for the best routines of the evening, and award fantastic prizes, like an iTunes gift card. And don’t forget to check out Pinterest to find music-themed snacks and drinks that will make the evening extra special!
Celebrity summer: Red Carpets & Movie Premieres
Some of the most popular movies of the year are released during the summer months, so movie stars spend the season jetting to exotic locales to attend movie festivals and promote this year’s blockbusters. This summer is no exception. With the release of movies like “The Smurfs”, “Despicable Me 2”, and “Man of Steel”, the stars will be strutting their stuff on the red carpets again this summer!
Reality summer: Family Trip to the Movies
You don’t have to charter a private jet to New York or Los Angeles to enjoy a taste of movie magic! Take your kids to the local movie theater to catch this summer’s most anticipated releases. Who needs to walk the red carpet with Brad Pitt when you can splurge on Twizzlers, popcorn and look silly in 3D glasses with your friends and family?
Celebrity summer: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Anniversary Party
It takes some real celebrity power to shut down Disneyland, also known as one of the world’s most popular destinations, for a private party! But that’s just what Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon did when they decided to renew their vows. Dressed as Cinderella and Prince Charming, the happy couple and their twins made their own dreams come true at this once-in-a-lifetime celebration!
Reality summer: Rent Out a Restaurant for Your Own Anniversary Party!
Celebrate your special day by renting out your favorite restaurant, hall or bar. What better way to commemorate your anniversary than to be surrounded by all of your friends and loved ones? Many venues will offer special menus and drink rates for large parties, so you can really go all out and create a magical night that everyone will remember for many years to come!
