Things To Do When It's Just Too Hot

  I know, I know. Talking about the weather...again. So much for defying British stereotypes, eh? But if you listen into pretty much any conversation here in the UK I’m sure you’ll find the heart of it relates to the weather. And besides the fact that it’s the Uk’s most common ice breaker for conversation, we are also just TOTALY unaccustomed to it. As I’m writing this, London is expected highs of 35 degrees, which (if you ask me) is a pretty mammoth turn around for the city that has over 100 different ways of saying it’s raining.

Basically. It’s  H.O.T

I’ve already written a post on ways to keep cool this summer but I wouldn’t exactly say things like keeping hydrated quite accumulate to long term activities!

Anyway, who needs justification on writing a few suggestions of things to do when you feel you can no longer beat the heat?! So, without further ado, let’s delve right in...

Go to the cinema 
I’ve actually been twice in the past few days and from my multiple hours being hooked by a screen I've acquired a serious love for the Mama Mia! Here We Go Again movie. Like. Oh my goodness. I’m not even exaggerating when saying this but it’s probably my new favourite film! I'd avidly recommend you go and watch it. (Also - most importantly - it’s definitely an escape route from the heat).

Take a trip to the coast
Seasides are famously known for their cool breeze.
Hey, and as you're there, why not choose from a vast and vibrant array of refreshing ice cream? 

Go for a swim
Anywhere you can find a pool. Just get in it.

Go Ice skating
If you're a bad skater like me, you'll practically be living on a floor of ice. Voila - job sorted.

Go to an inside shopping centre
Ahhh. A lovely air- conditioned shopping centre. Maybe you could even buy a fan or two while you're there. The heat enables everyones shopping addiction, right?

Visit a water park
Or just run through some sprinklers...

Thanks for reading! What do you like to do to keep cool in the heat?


  1. It's so hot in Belgium too! We honestly have no idea what to do when we're at home, everything feels like too much effort and a lot of sweat!
    Open air swimming pools are crammed right now so I don't like that either, but I'm definitely going for a swim at a friends' house tomorrow :')

    1. That sounds like a great idea, especially when the other swimming pools are packed out! I agree, sometimes just the thought of doing anything makes me hot and tired haha!

  2. We actually have Winter here, these are great tips I hate feeling hot

    1. So jealous, bet your summers are really hot though!

  3. Anything that involves air conditioning pretty much floats my boat during the summer months, haha.

  4. Great ideas Lily! It really is too hot at the moment. I’ve been swimming three times this week already ha ha. I really want to head to the coast at the weekend, it’s always so lovely there! Thanks for sharing <3 xx

  5. I live in England too and omw I agree, it's actually unbelievable how hot it is, I'm just dying for Winter at this point!!!

    1. Ikr it’s just getting too much! Thankfully we’ve had a couple storms now though :)

  6. Going for a swim sounds amazing, sadly there is too much work that needs to be done, so swimming will wait!

    1. The sad reality! Hope you have lovely summer though :)

  7. These are all fab ideas- I'm always stuck for ideas of what to do!

  8. I remember back when I was a kid we used to put the sprinkler in the garden and just run through it, that used to be soo much fun!
