Fourth of July is right around the corner and we’re all excited to celebrate here at QTee. I decided to pull together some 4th of July essentials to share with you!
1. Custom Hot Diggity Dog Tee
Hot Dog! This cropped baseball tee is perfect for the 4th of July! Whether you end up at a bonfire, pool BBQ, baseball game, etc. I customized it in red, grey, and blue and put it on a blue baseball crop top to make it look extra patriotic. I can’t wait to wear this!
2. Lime Crime Red Velvet Velvetine Lipstick
Trust me when I say this is the longest lasting lipstick I’ve ever worn! It’s a true red color and dries matte on your lips. It’s probably my favorite lipstick I own! The color is bright, bold and will last your entire day!
3. Custom "American Love" Converse
Show your American love! These custom Converse are perfect for any 4th of July celebration, and I’m sure they’ll get you several compliments as well. These Converse feature a vintage American flag that I customized with a red, white and blue gradient. Plus, I think these will look so great with my Hot Diggity Dog tee!
4. Pink Water bottle
Be sure to stay hydrated! I always keep my “Pink” water bottle on me at all times to make sure I drink enough water throughout the day. What I love about these water bottles is that they’re all BPA free… plus they’re super cute. I think this star one is PERFECT for the 4th. It’s also cute enough to use any day of the year!
5. Farrah- Summer Serenade Bikini
I absolutely love Triangl bikinis, and I thought this bikini was perfect for the 4th, without being too over the top. It is a coral and seafoam blue bikini with crochet details. I know it isn’t the most TYPICAL bikini for the 4th of July because it doesn’t have stars or stripes on it, but it takes shades of the flag, and this way, you can wear it all year long, not just for the 4th!
6. Custom "American Love" Snapback Hat
If you’re going to be in the sun all day, it’s important to keep your face protected with a hat. I customized our “American Love” snapback hat in red, white, and blue. I think it’s the perfect accessory for anyone.
7. Sun Bum Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50
Don’t forget your sunscreen! Sunscreen is so important in order to help protect your skin from the sun. I personally get sunburnt SUPER easily, and I rely on this stuff to keep me from turning red from the sun. It smells great and dries quickly. It’s also sweatproof and waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about being in the pool all day and your sunscreen coming off! (Although you may want to reapply after you get out!)
8. American Flag Mirrored Sunglasses
Make sure you have patriotic sunglasses to finish off your look! I know I’ll probably end up at the pool or the beach, so I will want to have sunglasses on all day, not only to protect my eyes, but also as a cute accessory! I thought these American flag sunglasses from Forever 21 were SO cute, perfect for the 4th!
We hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July! Be sure to check out our other patriotic tees and accessories here!
Here at QTee we’re all about customization! We recently got inspired by one of our collaborations, Goldfish Kiss, to match our manicures to our favorite shoe patterns! We went through her blog and found SO many cute mani ideas, but we chose some of our favorites to highlight.
PS- Check out her collection here
These “Aloha” nails are perfect for summer! It’s the perfect way to add a little bit of paradise to your day, just by simply looking down at your hands or feet! We love the bright bold colors she used on the dark background. It really makes the colors pop! These nails also match Goldfish Kiss’s “Aloha” converse shoe.

Talk about a sweet design! These watermelon nails are SO cute! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE enjoying cold watermelon on a hot summer day! These are the perfect summer nails! This design also matches our “Watermelon” converse shoe!
I have a current obsession with Banana Leaves and this nail design is the perfect way for me to always be rocking the look! I love how the different colors really give dimension in the leaves. These also go perfectly with our “Stay Breezy” converse shoe!
I decided to try this idea out myself and I matched my mani to our “Castaway” shoe! It took a little bit of time, but I think I figured it out. I added stripes on 2 accent nails and added black and white hibiscus flowers on top of all my nails.
If you decide to match your nails to your favorite QTee graphic or pattern instagram it and tag @QTeeShirts #LoveQTee. Who knows, maybe you’ll get featured!
Summer is here! Food is one of my favorite things in the world. I love all kinds of food, from savory to sweet... and even spicy! I've decided to share some of my favorite summer treats with you for you to try! If you end up trying any of these, we'd LOVE to know what you thought about them!
We all LOVE to start our mornings at QTee with a fresh and healthy Açai Bowl. We don’t always have time to stop at our favorite health store and buy one, so we’ve found a recipe online that we all agree is to die for!
2 packs frozen acai berry puree
1 cups coconut water
½ cup frozen strawberries
1 tbsp hemp protein powder
Add all the ingredients above in a blender and pulse until it becomes thick and creamy! If it is too thick, add more coconut water until you get the consistency you like!
You can add whatever toppings you like on top! I prefer ½ cup granola, a handful of fresh strawberries, ½ a banana, and shredded coconut on top of mine!

What better way to cool off during the summer than a poolside BBQ? It's not quite a BBQ without a refreshing cocktail either. We found this amazing recipe for Salted Watermelon Margaritas, and I tried it out, and let me tell you, it's delicious. Now, if you're under 21, you can still make this, but without the alcohol! It'll be a refreshing drink either way!
1/4 cup watermelon simple syrup
1/4 cup fresh watermelon puree
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4oz. Grand Marnier
4 oz. tequila
To make the watermelon simple syrup, bring 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, and 1 cup fresh watermelon chunks to a simmer, and let it cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat.
Strain the syrup through a chinoise and reverse the juice. Let it chill.
For the watermelon puree, add 1/2 cup fresh watermelon chunks into a blender and puree on high until you have a smooth texture.
Salt the rim of your glass.
Combine ice, syrup, puree, lime juice & liquor in a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour. Feel free to garnish the drink with a lime as well!

I don't know about you, but one of my FAVORITE summer snack foods is chips & salsa. We found this awesome Strawberry Avocado Jalapeño Salsa recipe that mixes sweet and spicy for the perfect summer snack!
1 cup finely diced strawberries
1 cup finely diced avocado
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp chopped jalapeño (be sure to remove the seeds!)
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and serve with tortilla chips!

Oh Donut Even! How cute is this?!?! This is such a perfect outfit to wear for a day out with your girls. The "Glaze Craze" graphic is one of our favorites, and looks so cute paired with the lace trimmed distressed denim shorts. The brown wedges match with the colors in the graphic and dress the look up a bit, while still being casual.

We all probably spend way too much time on Instagram. Right? Well, we’ve gone through and found some of our favorite Instagram accounts that we wanted to share with you! There are so many amazing accounts out there that it was SO hard to choose, but these are just our current obsessions.
Hannah is the epitome of a mermaid. She has so many incredible pictures of the beach and different tropical locations. This account makes us so ready for our own summer adventures! [and if you love her crewneck as much as we do, you can check it out here]
This account combines photography with digital illustration. I don't know about you, but this account makes us what to go out and draw! It definitely puts a twist on the typical Instagram account.
This account is perfect for the active girl. Paulina is all about cruising around California on her skateboard or exploring the ocean while surfing. Plus, she really knows how to rock a QTee shirt!
We love Suja Juice! Not only is this one of our company collaborations, but Suja's Instagram gives us so many ideas on how to stay healthy and eat right!
This is one of our favorite fashion accounts! Brittney shows off a variety of different styles and must-haves for the season. She goes beyond just fashion though, and will even share her beauty favorites and cute nail designs.
Life's a beach! Sunny posts the most incredible sunset shots, crystal clear ocean waters, and other fun adventures. If you're craving a summer getaway, scrolling through this account will let you experience a little piece of paradise!
Looking for adventure? We’re going on a road trip along the West Coast!
Of course to make your perfect road trip a success you need to pack the right things in your suitcase! I started with two of my favorite QTee shirts. I have a slight obsession with pineapples so I knew I’d want to wear my “Tribal Tiki” tee and of course I need to represent our road trip, so I packed the “Color Me Road Trippin’” muscle tank as well!
Remember to pack light for any road trip! I grabbed my favorite bikini, threw a pair of sunglasses, some sandals, and a Sand Cloud pillow towel into my “Working On My Tanlines” tote bag because we’re going to be stopping at multiple beaches on this trip! Then I loaded my Penny Board into the car to cruise Venice Beach and of course I’m bringing my camera as well to capture all the adventures and memories we will create. Before we headed out, I filled my water bottle for our travels to stay hydrated during all our thrills!
