Goodbye July. I have to admit, I’m not sorry to see this month go. It was a rough one for me for sure. It was a month of lots of self care + being true to myself about so many things. As hard as this month has been, it’s been a reminder of how strong I really am, made me grow into the person I am + opened my eyes on what I truly want my life to be. So today I’m sharing my July favorites, self care edition.
PRAYING!! – This is by far the most important part/thing I’ve done for my self-care. God is the best thing that can help me. It’s a comfort to me that I have God on my side + helping me, carrying me through everything.
Long Walks– I have found that getting out of the house + going for a long walk does wonders. I take my phone but put it on silent because I only want the camera and I have gotten so many beautiful pictures on my walks. I take my time, talking to God, letting my mind wonder, diving deep into my feelings + where they might be coming from + why.
Cup of Tea- This is been one of my go-to’s for when I’m feeling overwhelmed, stressed or want to unwind + relax. I love making one in a cute mug + drinking it in bed with my sparkle lights on + a candle burning. There is just something about it that calms me down.
Pacific Natural: Simple Seasonal Entertaining By Jenni Kayne – This book let me escape into a world of pretty pictures + ideas on creating healthy meals for myself + others, + beautiful ways of creating spaces. it was great for skimming through at night in bed while I unwind with a cup of tea.
Willow + Sage Magazine – This magazine, I have tried to get my hands on for months + I finally did! I love this publication because there are so many easy + healthy ways to make house + personal products. I’m especially looking forward to making ‘Fragranced Shimmer Oil Roller Bottle’. There are so many fun things I want to make! I’ve never made anything like this so I think it will be a great way to relax + destress.
The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson – This book has been such an eye opener, inspiration + exactly what I need right now! While reading this I’ve learned so much about prayer + a totally different way of looking at prayer + actually praying. I love reading it at night because its a great way to unwind + relax. And its so inspiring reading how God blessed others!
INC.redible Eye Masks – I have raved about these so many times you’re probably sick of hearing about them ha! But they are so good! They awaken the eyes, depuff, brighten, hydrate, firm. But most importantly they sparkle and shine bright ha!
Life In Lilac Candle [Scent: Man Cave]– This is something else I’ve raved about for eve + you’re probably sick of hearing me talk about it ha! But these candles are amazing! So well made + smell so good! I love lighting it to add some coziness to my space + to help relax + unwind.
Weekly Self-Care Project – This has been a great addition to my journey of growth + discovery. I feel like in the past year I’ve really tried to grow in all aspects of my life. To figure out what sets my soul on fire + when I find something that does to do more of it. This weekly journal is allowing me to do that by asking some tough questions + making me really dog deep into myself.
