Now that summer is almost over and fall is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to sit down and reflect on the past season. I’ve been so grateful that I’ve been feeling the best I’ve felt in a long time this past season.
The biggest revelation this summer was that I finally started taking my writing seriously. I’m currently working on a fiction novel which I’m really excited about. This has been a huge step of my self-acceptance and self-love.
Below are some moments I would like to share with you from my summer. Enjoy!
All The Food
I decided to consciously increase the intake of vegetables and seafood in my diet this summer and reduce my meat intake. I’m fortunate enough to live in a place where I have access to organic and local produce and even more fortunate that I am able to afford them.
Places I’ve Been
This summer, Mr. Man and I had a weekend of adventures in Toronto for the first time together. We also went hiking at Lynn Canyon Park in North Vancouver which was so beautiful.
The Creative Life
In addition to working on my fiction novel, I took a bunch of summer classes starting with flower arranging in May. Then, I did some drawing, sewing and calligraphy classes.
Beauty & Fashion
In the spring, I did a huge spring cleaning of my entire wardrobe and recyled/donated/consigned anything that I wasn’t liking anymore. I even got a personalized color palette consulatation (click here for more on that process). I also switched up my cosmetics to a greener, healthier routine. It was so refreshing to be rid of that old, stale and low energy I’d been carrying around with me for a few years and start fresh both inside and out.
Things I’m looking forward to in Fall 2016
September: Celebrating our anniversary with Mr. Man
October: Celebrating Mr. Man’s birthday in a special place
November: Getting back to work on my book
