Sooo we just checked and we're exactly two thirds of the way through 2018... It's okay though because at Tens it's summer FOREVER, and we're still chilling by the pool so grab a towel and an icy drink to sip on. August has been full of wonderful stuff, and we've put together some of it right here for you to consume with your summer cocktail of choice.

Enjoy!
