Looping Recommendations: A Relaxed BBQ Summer Party

Summertime is the perfect occasion to gather your family, your partner and your friends and organise a BBQ Party! Every summer includes a beach, sweating, heavy summer thunderstorms, sunbathing on a meadow and not to forget barbecuing! What could be better than grilling some steaks or vegetables with your family or friends?

Of course it's not always that easy to find a common time where everyone is free to meet, but Looping helps me to stay on top of all my appointments! The app lets me easily create events within my group of friends so I can quickly update everyone in real-time! Furthermore, Loopings lets you chat with those within your group so no one is ever left out with updates. 

Finally, while preparing for the big barbecue session, the list function comes in handy informing everyone immediately about last minute changes, and any important foods or drinks to bring along. Whether you’re a vegetarian or love your meats, a BBQ Party is one of our recommendations at Looping to help build meaningful memories and moment with those close to your heart.

5 Essential Items For The Beach This Summer!

Beach Blog Image-2.png

As a summer lover, there is nothing I would rather do than to organise a trip to the beach together with my family or friends. To unwind is by far my favourite activity during the hot summer days. Imagine soaking up the sun with the wind in your hair, the salty water, a complete relaxed state of mind.

For me planning a day out frequently entails some stressful organisational preparation. I used to be quite forgetful and would miss out on key essential items due to my hectic schedule. When I discovered that Looping provides a List feature to stay on top of things, I never lost sight of anything important again! With this feature, organising a trip has never been so easy!

The List function gives you the ability to create a list for a specific event. The steps are simple:

1. Create an event
2. Creating a list, then refer back to that specific event.
3. Once completed, your customised list will appear as part of your event.

Remember, your lists don’t necessarily need to be linked back to a certain event.


I’ve put together a helpful post focused on “5 Essential Items” to take with you to the beach this summer!

SUNSCREEN

#1 Essential: It’s important to always keep your skin protected. I recommend applying sunscreen every other hour, especially since your child or children may be sensitive to the sun rays!

BEACH TOWELS

#2 Essential: After taking a nice dip into the water, you have the option to air-dry or perhaps would prefer to grab a beach towel to dry off. This is the perfect solution, especially if you and your family or friends would like to lay down comfortably in the sand.

SNACKS

#3 Essential: A provision of delicious snacks is a must-have for a day trip. Often children tend to get exhausted after actively participating in beach activities in or off the water, but a delicious snack may do the trick to keep their spirits high and energised!

WATER

#4 Essential: During the heated summers, it is crucial to drink lots of water! This will help you and your family or friends to stay hydrated at all times. I can highly recommend drinking water over drinks by the kiosk that may contain too much sugar.

BEACH BAG

#5 Essential: Last but not the least, a beach bag is a big-must to keep all your essentials in one place. I would suggest brining a bag that would also protect your belongings well from the water and sand.


I hope you found this blogpost helpful. As summer is finally here, savour the moments with your loved ones on the beach and simplify your family life with Looping today!

Father's Day

Father’s Day was built on the foundation of honouring fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence fathers have on society at large. Although the special occasion is celebrated all around the world, Father’s Day remains rooted in traditions that vary from country to country.

In Germany, Father’s Day coincides with a public holiday known as “Christi Himmelfart” or Ascension Day. In the Middle Ages, Father’s Day was introduced as a holy event that commemorated God, the Heavenly Father. Around 1700, the holiday turned into the original Father’s Day as we know it, where each father of a family was celebrated. In fact, the father of a family with the most children would be looked up upon and honoured, and ultimately be gifted with a large ham.

During the 19th century, Father’s Day furthermore evolved and became “Männertag,” which was linked to a ‘Boys Day Out.’ In Germany, where this is widely celebrated, Father’s Day refers to friends getting together and consuming a considerable amount of alcohol together. Some of the popular festive activities include pub tours, visiting numerous Biergartens, drinking and singing in the beer halls. Wherever you may be, let us remember to always honour our fathers and celebrate the influence they’ve not only had on us, but on our communities.

Did you know that the first women’s football event was held in 1991 - 61 years after the first ever men’s football event?

It’s football season, and this time the women are in the spotlight as FIFA bridges the gap between female empowerment, cameraderie, and sports with the 2019 Women’s World Cup. This year, 24 teams will compete for the world title across nine cities in France.

Did you know that the first women’s football event was held in 1991 - 61 years after the first ever men’s football event? Each year the sports spectacle grows in popularity together with the number of participating countries. Germany, in particular, has had a victorious run winning two gold medals in 2003 and 2007. This year promises excitement with USA expected to win the event and France battling it for the runner-up award, according to CBS Sport.

Do you think that Germany will score big and reclaim victory yet again? With a solid line-up and some of your favourite players on board, the 8th edition of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final is an event you won’t want to miss.
