How to Actually Enjoy Summer

May is here, temperatures are soaring (seriously, it’s pretty much permanently in the 80s and 90s here now), and students and teachers alike can feel the pull of summer. Passing by my apartment pool that isn’t opened yet has been so tempting lately, and I’m looking for all the stretchy shorts to live in when I’m not at work.

I did this post last year on getting your body “summer ready” where I tried to remind you, readers, that however you choose to embrace summer is completely up to you and totally valid – even if it means hiding inside your air-conditioned home and pretending seasons don’t exists until fall comes.

But what if you want to actually embrace summer this year? You’ve decided you want to wear shorts and have summer parties and swim and eat popsicles and try to just enjoy life because three months is a long time to be miserable? Continue reading “How to Actually Enjoy Summer”

Partners in Wine: Rosé All Day

I will be honest with you: my interest in rosé came out of my love for the color pink and promises of a semi-sweet wine with hints of berry flavors.

Fall Wardrobe Wishlist

Fun fact – I love fall. I mean, I feel like you should already know that at this point, but in case you didn’t know, let me reiterate for you – I fucking love fall. So much so, that I started writing this blog post in July. What’s more is that I’ve already been looking for fall decor ideas and fall wardrobe ideas for about a month now. I even went through and divided my “Things to Wear” Pinterest board into three different boards – “Things to Wear”, “Things to Wear S/S” (Spring/Summer), and “Things to Wear A/W” (Autumn/Winter). It started because I wanted cute outfit ideas for summer clothes but didn’t want to look at fall outfits (lest I get angry that it’s hot as balls here in Texas). Have I said outfits enough yet? Regardless, here’s my fall wardrobe wishlist in no particular order (and yes, I’ve already started decorating my apartment for fall – fight me).
