What is Hot Girl Summer?

Well, it’s living your best life and feeling your hottest self, whether you’re rocking a bikini on the beach or strutting your stuff in a cute sundress. It’s feeling empowered and being unapologetically confident in yourself.

It’s a mindset, it’s all about confidence from within. Whether you’re curvy, tall, short, or anything in between, you are beautiful, and you deserve to feel that way every single day!

As Megan Thee Stallion said hot girl summer is, “to be you, just having fun. Turning up, driving the boat and not giving a damn about what nobody’s saying”. We couldn’t have put it better!

Over the years the term has become widely associated with hook-ups and dating culture but it’s so much more than that. While the term itself has the word girl in it, hot girl summer is welcome to everyone. Anyone can be a hot girl, it’s simply a state of mind!

You don’t have to be single or participate in hook-up culture to be part of the trend. Regardless of your relationship status, you can feel confident and live your best life in whatever way makes you feel good.

Kourtney Kardashian, a woman of many wise one liners, once said, “My vibe right now is just living life”, and that’s a hot girl summer mantra.

Just make sure whatever you do, you do it with confidence!

Tips For Having a Hot Girl Summer:

1.Try new things

It might seem cliché but trying new things can really help boost your confidence plus it doubles as an adventure. Why not try out a new restaurant or wear something out of your comfort zone? Pushing these boundaries can help us form a strong sense of self and who doesn’t want that?

2. Daily affirmations

If you want to be a hot girl, you must believe you are a hot girl. Try adding some daily affirmations to your morning routine. Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself “I am beautiful. I am smart. I am worthy.” You’ll have that radiant glow that confidence brings.

3. Book a Holiday

Book that holiday!! Whether it’s an exotic trip to Lake Como or a cosy night away in Donegal, book a trip. Regardless of your budget everyone deserves to have a little getaway and being in your travel era, even if it’s to the hotel 40 minutes up the road, is very much hot girl energy.

As cringe as it sounds please, please, PLEASE protect your energy! Put yourself first, take note of who and what makes you feel your best and where you enjoy spending your time. You might notice if something or even someone is draining your energy and be able to put your energy elsewhere. Don’t let anyone cool your hot girl summer.
