Summer lovin’, it’s happenin’ too fast.

Barbecuin’ like a DIVA, bound to have a blast! (Sung to the tune of Grease, obvi!)

Whether your hosting, or attending, come to a super fun BBQ equipped with style. I suggest these pre-planning assessments for your next summer cookout.

Let’s talk bbq gear – utilitarian & fashionable.

1. Covering fashion…

Everyone loves the smell of the charcoal smokin’ up that charred flavor. But to carry the evidence throughout the day, immersed in your clothes – not so much. Rock an apron that suits your style. Compliments the cute outfit underneath. And shields the remnants of the grille, or protects from splatter.

DIVA duo proudly sport these badass aprons from Hedley & Bennett (starting at $59), which are handmade in L.A. and are offered for customization from “top grade materials such as American canvas, raw Japanese selvage denim and European linens.”

Approved #unisexxxy, most def!  Also a top pick for also some of the best chefs in NYC & LA.

2. On to tech…

Can you say summer sexy?

Be the DJ with portable speakers – they’re lightweight and they follow you wherever you go. And if you play the right tunes, the hot summer crowd might too!

Have your playlist and radio stations ready to go – on demand! Bose Soundlink ($129.95) has recently impressed me.

3. And how ’bout a little beauty?

Come and leave with your bronze on-fleek. Without any damaging rays, I suggest Fake Bake 5 Minute Mousse prior to your barbecue. Easy-to-use and fast results for your bronze-on-the-go.

With those rays, lather it up! Not the amount of sunscreen, the number of your SPF and times you reapply!

Option 1: My fave for protection + a hint of tint is La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Face Extreme Tinted Fluid SPF50+  ($27). Lightweight with a sun-kissed glow upon application. This product is a DIVAfave.

Option 2: For a tint-free variety, I recommend Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($42). Offers a broad spectrum, oil-free base that guards skin from harmful sun effects and air pollutants.

BONUS!! It’ssssss gametime!

Stir up the mood with these crowd pleasers. Heads Up (found on the app store) and Cards Against Humanity ($20-$25 at Amazon and a number of retailers) are my two picks for a Summer BBQ, vacation, or other get-together.

There’s an overwhelming amount of energy pouring into the atmosphere of a BBQ. Spark the day with a sense of: fashion, entertainment, beauty & fun. Bring a smile. Feel the breeze. And soak in the love for Summer.
