Summer is knocking on our door and we have to be ready for long & warm days, uncontrollable trust ice creams, rashes, sweat, and whatnot. To be honest I like summer but when I have to deal with sweaty skin rashes and tiredness it becomes havoc for me. But I like this video because of the fruit and juices nature gives us.
