All Summer 17

Days are longer, nights are brighter, and tans are darker: welcome to summer. If you’re reading this, congratulations, that means you survived a long and cold winter, and if that’s not something to smile about, then I don’t know what is.

If you are seeking some summer inspiration, this post is the place to be; I’ll be sharing habits/foods/and places I like to frequent during the most magical months of the year. Enjoy :)

Summer Soundtrack:

We Don't Eat- James Vincent Mcmorrow x SAINT WKND

Boardwalks- Little May (remix)

Sweet Dreams- Eurythmics (remix)

Goosebumps- Travis Scott

Uh Huh- Julia Michaels

Young, Dumb, and Broke- Khalid

Malibu- Miley Cyrus

Sunset Lover- Petit Biscuit

Sweet Creature- Harry Styles

Worship The Sun: We often underestimate how healing just laying outside, breathing in the soft, summer air can be. Don’t limit yourself to just the beach this summer, open your mind to your front yard, roof, or a local park.

A Good Book: I think it’s a given that during the summer months you have to read at least one good book, especially if you are spending a lot of your days by the pool, or even just looking to expand your interests. Summer book recommendation: Women Who Run With The Wolves (the ultimate girl power book)

Documentation: This past year I took on yet another creative outlet, journaling. There is something so therapeutic about setting aside a specific part of each day and dedicating it to creating some sort of art inspired by life that day. So many beautiful things happen each day, don’t trust your memory, document it so some day you can look back and remind yourself how magical life really is.

Take Care of Yourself: If there is one thing that you are going to do this summer, make it a priority to look after your body. All aspects, spiritual, mental, and physical; every part of you is important. You owe it to yourself after this long, dark winter to be the happiest, sunniest version of you.

Find Beauty in Solitude: On the note of self care, also give time to get to know yourself. I’m a huge advocate for having a solid group of glowing people who you can share laughs and stories with, but I also know it’s just as important to make those laughs and stories with yourself. There is a social stigma (that I believe is) created by social media pushes and pushes the idea that you constantly have to be snapchatting these many people, going to the mall with this guy, and be a part of 20 different group chats. Don’t ever let your worth be defined by any of these things, you are loved: by the sun, by the moon, by the stars, and by me.
