We found some Desi’s on Instagram and here’s some of the things they were up to this summer…

What better way to cool up than spending your time outdoors by the river? And the magnificent scenery is always a bonus!

Summer is practically wedding season all over the world! And it’s no different for our Desi-Indians! I mean, can you really think of a more perfect season to bring all your friends and family together to enjoy the a night of dancing and amazing food. Who are we kidding? Desi weddings never just go for one night. Probably why summer is the best time, seeing as all your guests will need to ensure to take AT LEAST a week off work to celebrate!

 

Travelling to Brazil

Whether it was to watch the World Cup or simply just enjoy summer in another continent, there were plenty of people who flocked to Brazil this summer.

 

Vegas

Summer time + vegas = the most amazing pool parties ever.
What happens in vegas stays in vegas, and clearly there is no better time to party it up in Vegas than during the summer time.

 

Sightseeing on Bicycles

And then there are those who like to put all of us to shame. While most of us spend the day sleeping (or nights partying in Vegas), there are those who dare to push themselves to try something different. While most of us lack motivation, think about these guys who put their summer to use and spent their time cycling around Philadelphia. Maybe next summer you’ll have gathered enough motivation to sightsee on bicycles around your favourite city!

 

Baking

Who said summer was all about maintaing that beach bod? It’s all about enjoying life and there’s nothing like loading up on some delicious yummy desserts! Why waste your days lying around in bed when you can create some mouth watering desserts for all your friends and family to enjoy. (or just for yourself!)

 

Eating loads of ICE CREAM

And for those of us who aren’t any good at baking, we just load up on some (or lots of) ice cream…

 

Stuffing our faces with MANGOES

I think it would be hard to find one desi person who was not eating mangoes like crazy this summer! It’s mango season and it only comes once a year and we all know no one enjoys mangoes quite like indians do

 

At the Beach

Who wasn’t enjoying the beach the summer! Especially if you were in California or Florida like in this photo, most of your summer was probably spent catching some waves or laying around the beach. Whilst covering up in true desi style of course because we all remember our mother’s telling us not to get a tan just before the family party! #desiproblems … need i say more?

While summer is a time for relaxation, many of us spend parts of our day reminiscing about the things we do the rest of the year around but can’t do during summer. Such as: watch our favourite team play. And so instead we take to Instagram to throwback to those days before summer when we ran on almost no sleep at all.

While many would have decided to make the long trip from the U.S to India over the summer, some did a little detour and explored other parts of Asia such as Singapore or even Dubai

If you were brave enough to brave the heat in Abu Dhabi, Yas Island made for the perfect summer activities.

If flying all the way to India and sitting in a plane for 15+ hours was not necessarily your thing, then Europe might have been a closer option… Who wouldn’t enjoy a summer in Greece?!

Mason Jar Drinks

If you haven’t caught on to the whole making drinks in mason jars thing, you better jump onto the bandwagon ASAP! Mason jar drinks were big this summer, and I know most ladies definitely spent their time making delicious drinks which they poured into mason jars. Who said your drinks couldn’t look cute too? I know my number one find this summer was definitely the mason jars at the 99cents store. I found them right at the beginning of summer and they needless to stay, the really did add a little oomph to all my drinks this summer – whether it was just strawberry or lemon water or amazing fruit smoothies!
