THE MUSTS — All the fun, celebrations and random holidays you need to partake in this July

Summer has been in full swing for a while now but there are still plenty of days to fill with trips to the beach, bonfires, music festivals and even some weird holidays. July has more to offer than just sweltering hot days so get ready to mark your calendars this month with some of the best holidays yet!

July 3rd—Stay out in the Sun Day.


Since most of us endure grueling winters, this day is one we have been waiting for. Spend all day basking in those glorious sun rays but lather on the SPF first!

July 4th—Fourth of July.


Picnics, bonfires and stars and stripes galore! For all of you U.S. Fashionistas and Fashionistos, take advantage of your day off and celebrate your country’s independence. Find your best American flag apparel and take a dip in the pool, relax at the beach and make sure you finish the day with some fireworks!

July 7th—Chocolate Day.


Chocolate Day? Did you mean ‘paradise’? Let your sweet tooth run wild and stock up on your favorite chocolatey treats. Grab your friends Godiva, Ghirardelli and Ferrero Rocher for an all day binge fest. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, top it off with a screening of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

July 13th—Embrace Your Geekness Day.


Nobody knows how to do geeky-chic better than our Style Gurus! Don your favorite glasses and Star Trek T-shirt and let your geek flag fly!

July 17th—National Ice Cream Day.


While we probably deserve a National Ice Cream Month, a day will have to do. Hit up your local ice creamery, malt shop or fro-yo hotspot for some sugary goodness and don’t forget to share snaps of your frozen treats!

July 21st—National Junk Food Day.


With Chocolate Day and National Ice Cream Day in our rear view for this month, this is the main event. We have been training for this. Round up all of your junk food must-haves and a group of your closest friends for a day of shameless indulging in your favorite treats!

July 30th—International Day of Friendship.


It seems like there is a friendship holiday for every month, but there is no such thing as appreciating your friends too much! Plan an outing with your best pals and enjoy each other’s company. Don’t forget to take photos along the way and share all of your #GuruGang snaps!
