It’s been so hot out that some kids actually fried an egg on the ground – how insane is that? Thank goodness our Almost Free City Travels are trying to keep you cool. (Check out for more swank ways to save money.)

Miss Cozy’s Beauty Tip of the Day: We know, it’s hot and humid outside! Your hair is flat, frizzy or just plain oily. Definitely time to switch your shampoo and conditioner. Considering all the extra moisture in the air, most hair types will benefit from a lighter shampoo and conditioner for the summer. For fine, straight, or oily hair types, try a shampoo (with volume) which won’t weigh hair down in the humidity. Only apply a lightweight conditioner to the ends of hair. For thicker, courser, and/or curly hair, look for anti-humidity hair products that will prevent the frizz.
