It's time to make the most of what's left of the summer. I'm thinking bike rides, swimming pools, a quick camping trip, or half napping/half reading a book in the park.  Let's say I was going to road trip out to the nearest waterpark (maybe!), this just might be my, shimmery, a little bit silly, with a little tropical influence and some rocking out, there's one or two parts nostalgia in it too. What's on yours?
