It’s almost the official start of Summer! Can you believe it? This is how my days and weeks have been flowing lately…
(Left to right, row by row.)
One / We are in the middle of a heat wave here in Philadelphia, which calls for lots of buns and up-dos to help keep cool. Have you ever noticed how when you need them most, bobby pins and hair ties seem to disappear? I bought a 500 pack not too long ago, and now I’m down to about 40. Did I really misplace over 400 bobby pins?!
Two / I’ve been trying to make the apartment I’m subletting feel more like home. It’s hard because I know it’s so temporary -I’ll only be there til August, and then it’s off to (another) new place. I do love how open and light the room gets, and the way the walls look as the sun is getting. I do much more relaxing than working in the apartment, I’ve been sticking to coffee shops and other work spaces to get things done.
Three / I set my room up so that my bed sits right under one of the big windows. I love waking up and being surrounded by morning sun, or having a big moon be the last thing I see before I head to sleep. Big windows and natural light is a must for my perfect post-grad apartment.
Four / Getting back into the gym and practicing simple healthy habits has definitely inspired me to really push my limits. I’ve been working on practicing simple yoga poses and doing one full yoga workout per week. Sometimes it results in me sitting on my floor, wondering how on earth the woman in the video has so much control over her movements. I’m enjoying the new journey, regardless; and trying something new is always fun.
Five / Lists on lists on lists. Between preparing for the rebrand and winding down the last bits of my summer class, I’ve been taking notes and making lists like crazy. I love going back and looking at all of the things I’ve crossed off and accomplished over the weeks. It feels really satisfying. I hope to have the new blog up and ready by the end of June (which is fast approaching).
What’s been going on with you, lately?
