How has July been treating you, Lovely Readers? Incredibly well, I hope! It’s been hotter than heck here, so my a/c and blender have both been getting a workout. Thank God for smoothies, am I right?!
I have some lovely little gems to share with you as we wind down this month. Go ahead and mix up a smoothie for yourself and chill with me for a few. There’s something fun for you in this post, I’m sure of it.
I love, love, love Danielle LaPorte. I am a big fan of her book The Desire Map and use her daily planner every day. This experiment she posted on her blog is a wonderful example of the reasons why I think she’s so fab. I loved it so much, I featured it in the July issue of Tejomaya Wellness Magazine. It’s all about self-talk and how we need to be nicer to ourselves. and everyone we come in contact with. I am so thankful I came across this post. It’s really reminded me to be conscious of what I allow myself to speak over myself and others.
I’m a gal who digs a good D.I.Y., and this one that teaches you how to make your own wind chimes is so, so good. This one will only run you around $20 for your supplies. Heck, at that price you could make one for yourself and one to give as a gift to any new homeowners in your life! I’m always grateful for craft projects. As soon as I borrow a Dremel, I’m going to make one to hang from my balcony.
I meditate every morning, but sometimes life happens and I oversleep, or my hair just won’t cooperate, and I don’t have quite as much time as I’d like to get my calm on. When this happens, I have a great go-to that’s beautiful, centering and always does the trick. I’m always so grateful I have this one in my back pocket. Now I want to make sure you have it in your arsenal, too. Give it a try next time you want to get your day started off on the right foot:
I could eat these Veggie Spring Rolls until I explode. These are absolutely perfect for summer dinner parties, light lunch, or if you’re like me, all three meals a day. I’m thinking about making up another batch as soon as I wrap this post up. Wrap it up! Get it?! Okay, I’ll quit now, but seriously. I’m thankful that something that’s this delicious is so easy to make.
I got this masque from Befine in my Ipsy Glam Bag for June, and I just got around to trying it. The ingredients are actually pretty dang clean, and it smells like fresh cucumbers, My skin is so soft and smooth after I use it. I just love it. I get to be thankful every month that I spent the $10 on myself to have a little something luxurious that reminds me that self-care is ultimately better for everyone. A burned out me is not able to help as many people as a well-rested, happy me. The same is true for you, so indulge in a little pampering this week. Jennifer’s orders!
I want to hear from you! What have you loved this month? Any big news I can help you celebrate? What are you so grateful for that you just have to tell someone? Share in the comments below! It’d be so cool of you. 😉
Wishing You Total Well-Being,
